Extracts from the Photo Album Part 5
Body Painting1
A few examples of experimenting with theatrical make-up. This is applied with a brush or a sponge (I always used to use a brush), and it takes ages to get it even. Of course having a shaved head there’s more paint to apply, and it takes ages to wash off again. Still it looks quite dramatic.

The red and green are quite wacky, I think the gold and silver look much more interesting. Funnily enough on the evening that the photograph in the red dress and make-up was taken we did not actually go anywhere. This was not the intention, but it happened to be the day that Millwall Football Club were promoted to the Premier Division, and their ‘fans’ celebrated by walking along the middle of the Old Kent Road, and ‘mooned’ at any driver that came along. They then congregated outside a pub called the Henry Cooper, and things went from bad to worse… This pub was directly opposite where I lived at the time: so I was all dressed up, somewhere to go, but no safe means of getting there. The photograph with the silver make-up was taken around about the time that SG and I met, although I don’t believe it was on that particular night. The photograph is in colour, but it seems to have come out black and white.

Very cute ^_^ I love gold and silver more :)

So do I. Although I did try a number of different colours, the gold and silver looks amazing, and I used those colours quite a lot. It made me look like an android.

Something cyber you right ^_^ Keep on using these colors, they go with your baldness!

You remind me of an Egyptian Pharoah! :-)
