Where’d you get those peepers?

Last week, a friend (who really should've known better,) asked us where we got the eyes in the header image on my website. This provided us with no end of amusement, because he seemed to think we’d got them from an image library. But, bless him, he blushed when I said they came from my Dad's side of the family. (laughing)

After I'd done with my edits today, I dug out the original photo, so I thought I might as well share it here to give you a smile/laugh. :-) This is around six years old and this is me in my warrior princess persona, going out to a fetish/Goth/alternative night. The outfit also featured big boots and a bullwhip. If I get enough interested comments, I might scan a couple more of my “dressing up” pics...so, you all let me know if you enjoy it. LOL

Wow, you look totally amazing! I'd guessed that the 'eyes' were yours though, having seen said peepers in the flesh...

I used to love dressing up too, in the days when I used to go to media cons. I had a brilliant Star Trek uniform... and you should have seen my Han Solo in drag! ;)

[Can't fit into any of it any more, alas... I'm more Jabba the Hutt these days...]

Love the pic. I have eighties hair band day photos that could...well let's just say I was way more brazen back then. *ggg*

Wow, Saskia. That photo is so cool, it should be on one of your covers. Spooky yet sexy....and I am a straight female saying that. Love the eyes, never would have guessed they were yours. Awesome.

Wendy, I'd pay highly to see your Han Solo in drag! ;-)

Thanks so much, ladies. I have a few more wrinkles since then, (mostly laughter lines ;-) and more plumptitude. LOL Three years ago I was totally immoblised for over half a year, courtesy of the bone disease in my leg. Gained weight then that I'm still trying to shift. Other than that, I'm happy ;-)
