I'm NU! hello hello!

Carpe Jugulum is the title of a Terry Pratchett satire fantasy novel about throne-usurping vampires who sunbathe and eat garlic on a regular basis. heehee. In Latin, the term means "seize the throat", which I try to keep as my motto daily. *raising fist in the air, pumping vigorously* I ran an underground newspaper at one point and used the title as my pseudonym and it stuck like glue.

Carpe Jugulum is a wonderful book that I was obsessed with in high school. I highly recommend all of Pratchett's work, if you are in need a of a smart yet silly read!

Well, what about band stickers or bumper stickers?

Most are vinyl and will wipe clean if you spill and you can always layer them for a funky look. I'd also recommend getting some fancy trim from a fabric shop and doing the edges with fringe or beaded lace. oooh!

Well, they're not permanent, so I don't wear them when I work.

And I don't seem to have club days, so my poor hair doesn't come out and play nearly enough. So, by gods, we take the world by storm and the wolf by the ears and wear them to class!!!

teehee. :-)

I make dreadfalls. Oh yes, yes I do.

There's how I look today. Coincidence that we took some photos and people are interested in hair today.

There's a close up of my dreads. They are made from steam-sealed silky jumbo synthetic hair that I purchased at a beauty supply store.

Quinnster's site (URL in a post above) is really the best place to learn how to create hair, but I would be glad to make a tutorial at some point for those of you who want to learn through this site. I do dreads from synthetic hair that are quite sleek and smooth, loose falls with wool yarn (keeps your ears warm!), and I've made a silly wig or two with craftfoam, plastic lacing, and tinsel.

You'd be surprised at what you can put in your hair these days!

And there are the wool falls.

I can also do dreads for folks if you'd like. They're not easy to do and are time consuming, so if you want to be lazy, sweet. I'd be glad to craft for you, just send me a message.  Grin
