Leprechaun Lorraine


Here's a few photos of The Fabulous Lorraine's Peacock Do. Yes, she is the queen of St. Patties. I guess I should have bought her green sequined undies to wear under her skirt. Velcro anyone?





Now, we're off to eat Indian Food while wearing black victorian gowns and spider jewels....

Lorraine I LOVE the peacock hair. It looks so very good on you too!

Don't let Malena talk you into sequins 'cause sequins are well..decidedly uncomfortable. But wouldn't green metallic boots that match your hair be even better??*lol*


Mmmm Indian food. Now I'm hungry.

Lorraine, you have pretty, pretty hair... I always think dark emerald green goes well with black. (Looks down at self wearing green and black - not Victorian gown, alas, but jeans and hoodie.)

So... there is no subtle way to introduce this: anyone want to see The Dress? (Not quite finished, but I am so excited, I have to share with someone! Four weeks to go!)

Oh, so much pretty! Lorraine, your hair looks utterly fantastic, and K, your dress is beeyootiful! Much more elegant than my dress was.

I never wear much green, even for Paddy's Day. When I was a kid, I was a teeensy bit obsessed with my Scottish heritage, and would to work out who would have to die so I could inherit "our" castle (answer: bunches of people, starting about 300 years ago). I'm (a little) saner now, and the only remaining aftereffect that I've noticed is that I wear blue. Always. Frequently just blue. Oddly, my coat is cardinal red...I have this Indian sense of what colors match, apparently.

And yeah, Indian food is the best, our campus is having a Holi festival next week where everyone doused everyone else with paints, and there'll be free Indian food at that, yay!

Indeed, I was about to fix breakfast and then got distracted by phonecalls and emails. As if the SquidBoy's kicking me isn't enough to get me off my butt to the blender. *sigh*

Lorraine, the hair turned out BEAUTEOUS! And K, you're dress is gorgeous.

(pictures Lorraine in green metallic Docs) Yep. You need those.

Lorraine: Pretty hair. I can actually see the green in the pictures. Granted, my inability to see different colors in your hair in other pictures is probably due to my eyesight. Now you need metallic green nail polish.

K: Beautiful dress!

K - your dress is beautiful! When is the magical day? and yours as well Miss Mousey, when does Squidboy (chuckle) make the grand entrance? I do miss those days!

nice hair, nice dress, and we loves indian food, precioussssssss!

Green...I like olive green and have some clothes in that color. It matches my eyes. :-) Black, brown, olive, garnet...yeppers, that is my wardrobe...
Except I seem to be wearing this fabulous shirt Ravyn gave me for my bday which is very brightly multi-colored.

Thanks for the pics of Lorraine. She photographs quite well doesn't she? Could be I am a bit biased? Hmmm, well that's how grandmas are.
I note the green hair. Not bad but I like the blonde in my hair also, so what do I know?

Isn't Indian food hot and spicy? I like Morrocan food better.

By the way, I did break out of the apt. today. How fun it was. Hated to return. Ah well, it was nice to drive my own car again.
Maybe the next time will invite the Doc to take a spin with me, just for the fun of it. hee hee

Love the idea of green chimese, but, sequins might be a bit uncomfortable so close to the delicate skin. Have to give that a lot of thought.

I like green foods tho and have been eating a lot of it lately.

What FABULOUS hair!! It is downright gorgeous... and I love the peacock reference... I absolutely adore the peacock-feather-green hue, so much so that I tend to decorate with peacock feathers (all gathered kindly I assure you)... and yes, the hair has that effect.. very well done.

I have seen dye jobs that try for that effect... and they generally are very poor.. but I like the hair extensions.

K - Stunning dress! I love the sash-thing... very classic (and that is meant as a high compliment). I hope you have spendid times in it and even better times out of it!

I hope the Indian Food was great! I went through a distinct curry-phase and now harbour a cupboard full of curry powder ... and my poor tongue can't handle spicy food, it just instantly ignites on fire.

Grandma Eva, as far as a bias goes, I suspect many of us on this blog are fairly biased towards the lovely ladies of LaM. :-) You have a very special and wonderful grand-daughter.

Love the dress! WOW. You look stunning!!

Hey LaMies! It's 2:40 am and I'm off to bed. I have a black tie party I'm singing at tomorrow. It makes it sooooooo much easier to sing when you're wearing a gown. I'm not sure why...maybe it's the opera background. Who knows. I wish Lorraine were here. We had such a grand time together. I'll take some photos tomorrow...in my rhinestones and feathers....

Oh what an exciting time, Malena! Hope the event was dazzling.

Lorraine, I've been doing research on hair extensions. Do you use any particular type of hair? I've read Remy virgin cuticle hair is the best. but I would bet that is for if you are trying to make your hair fuller. The great lengths hair seems nice if you are just going for color. Any thoughts? Anyone?

 
At 7:34 PM , Blogger Fabulous Lorraine said...

Real hair is ver pricy , but it can be died any colour. I use the fake kind , to keep the cost down. Real hair adds about $300 to the bill.

Malen is off singing without me, we are so glad about eachothers other gigs when we do them, and then spend the whole night wishing we were together. I know everytime I play I wish it was with her, and I am thinking she is feeling the same about now.....

 
At 7:36 PM , Blogger Fabulous Lorraine said...

Oh, many thanks too, glad you ll like the St Pats Hair Do. If Malena bought me green underwear, for the record, I would wear it, sequins and all.

Not sure what I am going to wear for the big day. Paul is being irritating and keeps going on about what we are going to PLAY and not the important issue of WHAT are we going to WEAR!

Your playing like what? 11or 12 hours on St.Pats? Your gonna play every song you know and I bet a few you don't just to keep yourselfs interested and awake.
If anyone is interested Lorrains other other band the Tim Malloys will be on the radio live this sunday night.
You can listen on the internet on drive105. It's the homegrown show. On at 10pm central time.
These shows with the Tim's are always way out of control and they might even need to give Adam a 7 second delay to keep the bloody FCC off the station's back.
Anywho. Have fun ladys and wish me luck. Got a hot date with 2 lovely ladys on Saturday night. When it rains it poor's it seems.
Your loyal sherpa

oh miss Medium Cool, please oh please tell us of your solo adventure. it was mentioned in the Times, you rockstar! ok, well i think it was..

Please do share about your gig, Mistress Malena! And yes, I think being dressed for the part makes it MUCH easier to perform. It's right up there with go-go dancing. Dressed in jeans and a tank top I'd feel like an idiot standing on a platform and knowing people were looking at me. Dressed in a PVC miniskirt, my don't-****-with-me boots, a sparkley top and lots of eyeliner and I demand that the spotlight is on MY platform! ME ME ME!!! hee hee.

As for the hair extension question, I tend to use fake hair, but mostly because the real hair never comes long enough and is too expensive (hmmm... $5 per package of hair? or $35?). Mind you, I save a TON by always doing my own hair, but I don't recommend that for anyone unless you've got about 10 years practice, or don't mind others noticing your muck-ups in the back. ;)

Any plans for an online chat while she's out there?

 
At 8:27 PM , Blogger vandaluna said...

mistress mousey...thanks for the hair extension info.

Someone I know just had some done and they are awesome.


Malena, where is this Times article on you? Wow! I'm communicating in high cotton now! :-)
