I thought it was high time I put a picture of myself somewhere on my blog. The concept of the crazy hair came from suffering from really intense static electricity. Seriously, I'm a shocking person. I'm like Storm from the X-Men whose only superpower is controlling lightning. So, how did I get my hair to sort of stand on end? I taped shish-kabob sticks unto my headband. At first I was going to tape my hair to the sticks, and then thought against it. Instead, I put my head down and sprayed copious amounts of hairspray in my hair. When I raised my head, the hair caught on the sticks and violá, crazy-electrified-hair-look. And the light? My nifty little flashlight. The flash (on a stick) is on my right side and went off initially. The shutter was left open for a few seconds, so I held the flashlight and rotated in place, with each rotation bringing the flashlight further up and taking care that my face didn't get affected by the light!
Ta-da! Crazy self-portrait.
