It just occurred to me that Zhiro and Kali make a scary good-cop/bad-cop team.  Not that Zhiro would ever think of himself that way.  He would be appalled at the very suggestion.  (Kali would gleefully crack her knuckles menacingly and grin at you in a scary way at the idea, so I think she’d be totally cool with the concept.)

Cory cut my hair for me this weekend.  It’s the shortest I’ve ever had it and we decided to try shaving portions because 1) IT WAS SO LONG IT WAS DRIVING ME INSANE and 2) Why not?

Here’s a picture from my latest Vlog for Patreon:

What’s been interesting is that it is a more masculine look…and oddly that makes me want to do more girly things.  Like put on make up or wear earrings.  Neither of which I generally do.  Not that the make-up experiments ever leave the house, because…well…they tend to get Out Of Hand.

Like, most of the make-up I have was bought for me by various well-meaning individuals.  And as a result, the colors are all boring and I’m sure very sensible but mostly BORING.  So I’ll put some eye shadow on and think, “It needs…more color.  More excitement!  MORE DRAMA!” and then I’ll keep adding more and more colors and trying to make more interesting shapes and before you know it I’m drawing crazy designs on my face with lip-stick and bearing an odd resemblance to David Bowie album covers.

Really, what I want out of make-up fashion is Morticia Addams if she’d embraced the gloriously questionable color choices of the eighties.

What weird fashion do you love that you wish the rest of the world liked too?

straight legged pants with a regular waistline?? I don’t have the proper shape for hip huggers and for a while that was all there was to buy. 😛

Reasonable and comfortable waistlines seem to be a holy grail when it comes to clothing for women. Along with cloth that is thick and durable as the equivalent clothing for men. I’ve started wearing more and more men’s clothing because I just don’t like being cold or in pain, and women’s clothing tends to fail on both those accounts.

OMG YOU LOOK SO CUTE!!! I had my hair like that when I was living in Oklahoma. I prefer it long, but having an undercut was super fun. It just got annoying having to trim it weekly so it looked nice.

Also, Zhiro and Kali are totally the good cop bad cop team, and now I’m reconsidering everything about my fanfic. Which just means you need to have another contest so I can write another fanfic.

I am intrigued. Should this contest have a theme?

You look super cute and fab and fierce and all those other good adjectives <3

Oo, Zhiro with the truth bomb for the knowledge god. Maybe telling the truth and getting it out in the open, both ugly and not so much, will do our trickster knowledge god some good?

Thank you! I am still getting used to the look and am (predictably) paranoid.

The other day I was at the grocery store and the person bagging the groceries got out her phone and was holding it up in that, “OH I’m just texting and totally not taking your photo (I’m totally taking your photo)” way and I was all HIGH ALERT BLOCK ALL SIGHT LINES BEFORE YOU END UP ON THE INTERNET AS PERSON WITH STUPIDEST HAIR AND A BLOG DEDICATED TO HOW UGLY YOU ARE. So there was a series of comical dodging and blocking all in silent and pretending-not-to-acknowledge-the-other-person pantomime. As Cory and I gathered our bags she came up and said, “This is super awkward, but can I take a photo of your hair? I’ve been wanting to cut mine and I love how yours is styled.”

“Oh,” says I. “Sure.”

And I turned my head and she took her photo and as we left Cory (who cut my hair for me) turned to me with this grin because he knows I’ve been anxiously self-conscious and said, “How did THAT feel?”

“Well…” I replied, feeling a little foolish. “A lot better when I thought she was going to make a blog dedicated to my hideousness…I…I guess.”

ooh man the irrational thought spirals. I know how that feels, so much. I’m glad she really liked your hair though and I hope you felt better! It can be really hard adjusting to a change, espeically if it’s a radical one and you’re always anxious about doing what you want instead of what society wants for you. Kudos to you for taking that step, though.

Teacher shoes…. but I am a teacher…. so is it really a bad fashon choice? Also, many of my clothes are some form of “hand-me-down” from friends and family members. Much of which I had to stitch together or mend. Yea…

DAWWWWW is it just me or does Zhiro have the cutest doe-like eyes there in the last panel?

As far as fashion failz…I really like kind of witchy/hippie-ish clothing I guess, blouses, long skirts, etc but can really only get close in thrift stores and then of course there is the “does it fit?” curse. I also like pleated skirts (my world for a pleated plaid skirt) but they seem a non-existent stereotype unless you want one that is fetish-short. I love layering clothes too.

That being said having a uniform at my job means I barely wear any of it, whether I own it or not. *grumbles about khakis and crummy fabric polos*
