Me as was.
Inspired by Medbh's outing herself on her blog, with a photo of herself in the 80's.
Here I am, with my dyed black hair and (gasp) is that EYE MAKEUP? Must be. Nobody's eyelids are orange unless they missed their shots.
The year - I believe it's 1988. An apartment in the student ghetto of Allston, Massachusetts.
Look at that skin, huh?
This black hair didn't last long. The dye was messy and dyed the skin around my face and ears for about a week after each touch-up, and as my ginger grew out, the part looked just awful. My poor mother thought I was going bald when my ginger and pale scalp started showing.
I'd do it again, though. I liked that Louise Brooks haircut. My friend Kim did that with the help of some clippers and about a dozen Heinekens. I wonder where she is now. She should move back here. I need drinking buddies and a way to avoid going to Supercuts.
So. That's me. EGAD - 20 years ago.
