|the sepia filter made it misty. I then used Picnick for the star overlay. Use it before it closes in April!|

But sepia, a really cool design... and with some filters, you can still let in natural color. I want a somewhat Wizard of Oz-ish look (anything from where Dorothy is home in Kansas)---David O. Selznic used a pantyhose over a light, to magnificent effect. I think over a lens, I can work it. (Also considering the fishnet stocking bit for shadow.) I like a "cinnamon" effect that tints without destroying undertones.
Sepia's history is kind of cool. Cuttlefish emit an ink that was used on photo positives to tint them that golden-orange-pink-peach-brown color. Thank a lovely squirting fish! But modern filters are just too damn orange!
But, using the party dress I bought for an event (Good price too, from a lovely shop called the Clothes Horse near me!) I decided to, as I promised a sweet neighbor kid, "Show my princess dress".) So, with my favorite accessory, and good luck charm, made from 100% authentic Himalayan wool, I worked out a few shots. It fit when I bought it. Now it's hanging, too long, needs a tailor. But hope to use it again.
No make up, hair in flat pins and loose braid and left to dangle. I use John Freida anti frizz serum and a detangling brush, and clarifying shampoo and conditioners, with a deep condition weekly. Curls by: Genetics and a simple wash, condition and dry. It's in defining them that I'd do the most work. Nice of them to behave! :)
