Jumping on the "big showoff" bandwagon!

Post by Ice_Pick_Abortions » Sat Aug 23, 2008 9:22 pm

everyone else was doing it and i want to be cool too :p these are in a vague chronological order. i apologise if some of these are ridiculously huge. i'm relying on photobucket to resize some of the older pics. unfortunately i can't seem to find pics of my fall wearing days, although one pic is in Laura's Pink Pirate gallery, and my first two extension sets :( so i'll start with this roving by Evil Dolly. my hugest hair ever and i loved it! black pink and white and about 60 DEs crammed on my little head:

Image

Image

and then i decided that i loved roving and that i would never wear synth again so i wanted to make my own:

Image

Image

then there was a big gap due to my job and studies etc. i still made sets cos i was bored but i couldn't wear them that long so there's not really any pics. eventually Download 2006 came along and with it the "Festival Hair Pictoral Guide" thread. a few girls asked me to make them some roving sets:

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

and Rae from Hair Alchemy made me love synth again with this set for Download. platinum, pink and PH pepperoni:

Image

winter came round and it was time for some Jungle Dread roving. black-white, pink-white and blue-white transitionals plus some solids by her and some solid SE roving by me:

Image

a brief foray into loose extensions followed:

Image

Image

and i finally made my first full synth dread set. super skinny violet, deep purple and steel grey:

Image

for Download 2007 i also made my own set. dark pink, yellow and lime green:

Image

and then i graduated from uni and made the mistake of getting a job that allows dreads. i went a bit mad..

Synthetic Exstacy dreads in medium brown, aqua, baby pink and 613:

Image

Kelleye from The Cute Alternative christmas swap dreads. first curlies! not sure on exact colours:

Image

surprise set by Stina. it's a pity i don't have better pics of these cos there's loads of colours in there:

Image

surprise set from Pink Pirate Hair. lots of lovely blends:

Image

fiery roving from Jungle Dread:

Image

and lastly a burgandy, pink and white set by Stina again:

Image

phew.. that's a lot. sorry if your computer is now dead!

You look the best in the Evil Dolly roving, and Kellye's kit. I think you look better with high-volume hair! :D

i've barely made any roving since making those sets lol. synth swirls are so much easier than pouring over roving with a felting needle!

My fave is the orange roving with the white tips - such a yummy combo!

I found one pic of you in falls but anything else is still lost on Shiin's server :(

Wow! They're all stunning. Love the set from Rae at Hair Alchemy. And I think I spent a full minute staring at the aqua/black candycanes! They are so PERFECT!
