LHC Winter Swap 2019 :)

This week I got this amazing Whovian and fandom-centric box from fellow Long Hair Community member Milady de Winter, as part of our annualWinter swap 😍😄💙

There’s chocolate 🍫, a lovely flexi-8 (have this same one in red and love it, so yay for more!), a gorgeous watercolour of a scarved Gryffindor lion my giftee painted 🦁❤️ (check out @laura_dr4w on IG for more of her amazing art! 👌💙🎨), and the DW goodies: A lovely TARDIS bag with a cute blue Dalek keyring 💙, and an awesome TARDIS scarf that is going to see a lot of action this next Spring 😁👌
 

Non-hairy pic spam time!

Cosplay hair - Erendis braid

Today's post is more pic spam than tutorial, featuring the hairstyle I wore for my improvised Erendis cosplay during a 2017 Tolkien convention. It consists of a three-strand braid with a paranda (tutorial in the link) with the addition of simple three-strand side-braids tied at the back and adorned with a star hairpin. I also like to wear a flexi-8 when wearing three strand-braids, both because of decoration and practicality - my straight, fine-textured hair is really slippery and even with the paranda the braid will become undone during the day, so the flexi-8 helps keeping the braid more in place. Already posted this updo, with casual Erendis pics, in this post:

 And here are the pics from the convention mini shoot:

Cosplay hair: Lúthien variation (September 2018)

Ted Nasmith-inspired 🍃☄️Lúthien Tinúviel cosplay ☄️🍃 variation this past September, featuring fingertip+ length shots and hair pics! 

It seems that my dark auburn hair likes to get *really* red in the afternoon sunlight, and I’m 100% OK with that 👌💙, even though it’s way redder than it should be for Lúthien, but ah well xD

Random hairstyles: Braided buns and ponytails

Been uploading these in the individual posts for each hairstyle, but let's also have these recent-ish hairstyles in their own post :)
  • Ponytails
Featuring sunset lighting, which makes my auburn hair look really reddish, and I approve 100% :D <3:


Another ponytail shot at archery classes :):

Length hairstory - 2012 and fingertip

You can find an abridged version of my hair journey from 2010 in the 'My hairstory' page. This is the first of a series of individual posts that's basically about a bit more detail about my hair growing over the years, plus a pic spam of length shots xD

Previous post: 2011 hair (classic length).

2012 was the year I reached fingertip (in between classic and mid-thigh, it's the length where you stretch your arm straight at the side and your hair reaches the tip of your fingers):

I regained a bit more thickness during this year, although I still wanted to thicken up the hemline (that hasn't really changed throughout the years, really, I'm always wanting a thicker hemline :S xDD). But overall this was a pretty good year hairwise - I'm actually back at fingertip now, after the big trim a couple of months ago from knee, and I'm looking at the 2011-12 pics for inspiration xD Hoping to start experimenting more with texture and styles now that I'm more comfortable with how the hemline is looking :)

But let's proceed with the 2012 pic spam xD (also featuring the way auburn hair changes hue with the lighting xD):
  • February:
  •  March: Length shots (plus heatless bun waves) from a test for a show organized by my Irish group for Saint Patrick's Day (I reenacted an Irish Queen of the Sidhe from the story of Oisín and Niamh). One of my favourite hair days, both regarding length shots, and bunwaves (original updo was a seashell bun) ^^
  • April: Finally reached fingertip! (and have a blurry pic to prove it xDD)
  
  • May: Two length shots featuring heatless texture experiments (braidwaves+bandanna curls/rag curls in the ends):

  • July: July 2012 has some of my favourite length shot hair pics :) Also involving my (Elven) ranger cosplay WIP with that leather jerkin :D xD
One of my favourite hair pics ^^

Next stop - 2013 and mid-thigh!
