Pandora 2.0

I finally got a chance to wear my new hair extensions at my mate's goth-themed birthday bash.

We went out in Norwich yesterday and had a bloody good time.

I was wearing this:
You're doing it wrong

Quite a lot of black PVC; black and blue acrylic hair extensions and the obligatory cyber-goth goggles. I also had spider-web pattern fingerless gloves, but hadn't put them on yet when the picture was taken. Sadly the black PVC knee-high boots aren't fully visible in the pic, which given the pain my toes were in by the end of the night is an absolute crime. But at least the hair went down very well.

In the first pub of the night it was the icebreaker that led me to have a really cool chat with a couple of girls doing the chola look. And when we got to The Catherine Wheel everybody wanted to have a closer look or a feel.

What really made my night though, were the compliments.

The birthday girl joked that she wasn't going out as she couldn't compete, and later in the evening her best friend told me that she was really concerned when she heard what I was wearing, but having seen it she was impressed.

Being told you are "pretty" by young ladies is also an ego boost (even if they were drunk and more flattering than honest!)

I also got two commissions to make more hair extensions.

Something about that picture's size is screwy. I mistook it for a horizontal divider on my browser, it's only about 3 pixels high!

I've seen it on flickr though and you look great. Sounds like a fantastic night too.

I think its something to do with relative picture dimensions. I've changed it to absolute dimensions instead. Hopefully that will fix it.

And thanks for the compliment.

Ah you made it to the wheel !
Yay :O)

Yep. It was really nice in there, and the staff and customers were really friendly and welcoming.

And the karaoke was fun. I did "My Way" (Sid Vicious version) and "Justified and Ancient" by The KLF and Tammy Wynette.

I'll let you know next time I'm heading back that way.

Hey, that's my top! Love the hair though, can you make me some in black and purple? (My hair's 3ft + long btw ;))

Pandora Caitiff said...

Make that three commissions :)

@Charlee. Yeah should be do-able. The ones in the picture are 2ft long. I'll just need a longer stick, and maybe an extra hank.

I wonder if the wool shop does a bulk rate?
