I LOVE being a redhead, and one of my favorite things about it is using my hair as a centerpiece in costumes. Cosplay as a redhead is quite easy – there are a multitude of characters primed and ready for gingerfied costuming.
How does this differ from our list of Halloween costume ideas for redheads? Cosplay (in my estimation) tends to favor source material from the geekiverse (particularly anime/manga and videogames), whereas regular costumes derive more from general knowledge.
Also, while Halloween costumes are pretty occasion-specific and often involve scary (and/or lazy) elements, cosplay can be worn to cons throughout the year and usually involves a fair amount of effort in putting the ensemble together. As such, it may benefit you to read both lists in order to get a full list of costumes together. Continue reading “Redhead Cosplay Character Ideas – 55 Of Them!” »
If you’d asked me a month ago, I’d have said I’d never change my hair. In fact, many SD fans bemoaned the idea at all – my lion-clown mane is my signature, they said. Alas, I’m first and foremost a beauty blogger, and we all must grow and change.
So I did it all by myself, like a big girl and in the My Little Pony parlance of our times decided to do a dip dye, reverse-ombre kinda look. To clarify for those interested (and to soothe the OCD colorists out there), let’s talk about what these terms actually mean and the difference between them: Continue reading “Dip Dye Reverse-Ombre DIY Haircolor” »
You know what’s even cooler than doing what you love for a living? When you get recognized for it. My Domestic Dish nominated me for the 2015 One Lovely Blog Award, and well if that doesn’t just make her the sweetest little peach this side o’ Georgia. (That was so Southern of me.)
I like to write a positive blog for the most part. However, there comes a time when there must be The Airing of The Grievances. This is one of those times – the redheaded edition.
My head was born a blonde, but my heart has always been a redhead. I tried to deny it, I tried to fight it, but in the end I realized why my first instinct way back in high school was to go red – I had to embrace the redhead inside of me.
I thought the bonus to this move would be ditching all the dumb-blonde jokes and annoying come-ons. Little did I know, I was just trading one haircolor’s suite of witty repartee for another.
More and more, it seems, ladies are coloring their hair shades of red or adding red tones to give their manes some more grrrr. I’m my own example. I love the way the sunlight hits my hair and seems to set it on fire when I’ve got it a nice deep red. People are always asking me how I get this vibrant color – but the trick isn’t getting it, it’s keeping it.
The only problem: whether you’re faking natural ginger a la Amy Pond or channeling a fire engine like Eva Marie, red fades quickly. Want to know the reason behind this? It’s actually pretty interesting (to a person like me who enjoys useless trivia, anyway). Okay, here it is:
