Peacock Rock

Hey LaMies! Webcam party from my house tomorrow at 6 pm (LA time), 9 pm east coast. Now, having said that I can get down to the good stuff. Kitty, our manager/merchandising genius/photographer did some great pics of us last night. I've convinced Lorraine and Kitty to let you have a peak. I think they turned out ROCK STAR fabulous. ..Like a mix between Nikki Six, Heart, and Prince. Oh yeah! Lorraine was such a good sport. Check out miss Fabulous in all her peacock splendor.

I did her/our make-up. Doing makeup on someone else is always fun. I can do mine in 10 minutes. The 3 Gaiman assistants had a blast last night. (I am an honorary "GA" because I'm undead. Hee hee)

We went to Santi Alley in the Fashion District today for LaM merch. If you've always wanted Fablo hair, you WILL have it at Balticon...and on the webstore. We found great colored extensions attached to a barrette, some cross rhinestone bobby pins, fishnet gloves, and all sorts of Glam Goth Goodies. You're gonna love it. Our perfume came while Lorraine was here as well. We'll have two that smells like Fablo and one that smells like DEATH..oops, I mean me. NOTICE the bracelets I'm wearing! They will be available very soon on the site. Semi-precious stones with metaphysical explanations and all! ONLY $12.00!!!!!! (We'll also have the necklace and earrings to match) Kitty doesn't mess around. Check her out with her bad self!!

We're feeling Diva-rific today. Kitty and Lorraine look so beautiful.

I'll try to model some merch tomorrow at the webcam party. Lots of spooky cool things happening at the TEVES house this week. More photos to follow..hey, we've have 1, and I mean 1 hour of sleep in the last 28 hours. We're dead. Lorraine is asleep already. See and talk to you all tomorrow. Wehooooooooooooooooooooooooooo

**chuckle** Last year at Balticon i had a total of 15 hours of sleep, spread over 4 nights.

And i seem to be practicing for this year already, sheesh i need to go to bed!

Great photos, can't wait to see the rest of the stuff! :-D

love the pictures... you all look gorgeous!!! sultry goddesses... or perhaps teasing genie temptresses...

very nice photos... and L, your eyes are perfect green jewels in the middle pic with the hat... and I love the lashes look in the first one, excellent make-up power you have M.

and Ravyn, did I catch it right that you are working at Balticon(er... preparing to work)?

At 12:02 AM , Blogger Rubius said...

by the way, loved the tattoo and tattoo pic too, somehow black and white pics tend to catch my eye first as that one certainly did.

At 3:48 AM , Blogger vandaluna said...

Oooh! Great pics!! Wonderful make up too!

I have a I need one or do I just watch?

How do I do watch this webcam thing anyway? I'm soooo confused!!!! ;-) Is it on YIM? Do I need to request to be added to your buddy list? Do I need to send you my nym? That's and easy one to figure out...

rubius: Ravyn is the Balticon chair. Yours truly is the chief idea pest. ;-) I'm also the welcome wagon and coordinator a mischeif.

Yay for webcam goodness! I'll be there with bells on. (Not that you'll be able to see them.) I haven't been getting enough sleep lately myself, so I fear I will have to crash into bed after about an hour, but 1 hour of LaMie love is more fabulous than 3 hours of normal life so it's all good.

Those are some lovely, lovely pics. That goes without saying, of course.

(Kitty is a GA? I had no idea. Too cool!)

After a break of several weeks during which we were busy and failed to make proper time for dancing, the dear wife and I are back to DDRing nightly. We've finally moved up from "Easy" to "Standard" and are feeling very accomplished. Were you ever able to get it working, Lorraine? I do so hate to let you down. Worst case maybe you can bring your laptop to Balticon and I'll get it up and running for you there? I can find an adapter for it so you can hook it up to a TV; that way you don't have to worry about the small screen and we can use it to play at the con. ^_^

If you want to join in the talk toniight , post here telling us your yahoo name and we will add you to our IM buddy list, then you can join in.

You can view our webcam, we have to send you an invite once we are in the conf, let us know if you have webcam and want to view. We don't view anyones, but anyone with one can see us.

I know there is an easier way to do all this, and in fact am looking into the easiest way now, so we can simply have a conference, without all these hoops, but one does get busy.

Glad you like the pics, we sure had a lot of fun.

( in my sleepless post-St-Pats-day and all night photo shoot defense I have to say I FELL asleep on the FLOOR beside Malena and the computer, rock star girl had not GONE to bed , hee-hee )

Dan, we'll talk Dnace Dance Machine....

Glad you like the pics! We had SO much fun!

Danth, what on earth is a GA?
i hope it is a nice thing...
as for sleep & dreams, yes to both.
i dragged those 2 divas all around downtown LA & Santee Alley yesterday, ending our day with a drive along the Pacific Ocean. good news, we bought the biggest most beautiful-ist strawberries off the side of Topanga Canyon road, Lorraine & I being the worst hagglers ever, hahahHAHAHA.
yes, folks, as the comic guy on the simpson would say: Lolo & Malena, best models... ever.

At 9:25 AM , Blogger Kitty Cat said...

Doh. i re-read their blog, cancel Danth Guyth question...
shout-out to Jodyth, how is your Librarian con?!!

Back again to tell you of my ultimate California moment, I like to call it The Chicken Run...

We stopped on the way home for the School Run this morning to pick up a chicken for soup. Basic raw whole chicken. . I ran in , (fashionalbly dressed in Miles's oversized Oatmeal top, and my skeleton jammy pants from Fleet Farm) and picked up said chicken and a bunch of celery.

As I was checking out with my chicken and celery the nice young lady behind the counter asked me a quesion I have been asked before but never in such an instance.

( before I tell you , it should be noted that Whole Foods has an eating area, where one can eat deli and such )

She says to me: "Would you like this for here or to go"

All, and I do mean all, I could say was " It's a raw chicken"

Well, says she, we have to ask, there aree people who eat raw meat.

RAW WHOLE CHICKENS at 8:00am in Whole Foods Deli are?????

Hope it helps poor Malena's cold. Actually , I know it willl make her feel better, I am a Really good cook if I do say so.

At 9:53 AM , Blogger Mimi said...

Oh, the hawtness...!!

At 9:54 AM , Blogger Fabulous Lorraine said...

PS Vanda, Malena did mean Silica. It's good for the immune systen, helps build the imunne system, and is good for bones.

At 11:12 AM , Blogger Dan Guy said...

Eating a raw chicken at 8am!! They must get a lot of circus geeks coming through town, or retiring there.

*wolf whistles*
Y'all are the hotness! Lolo's eyes are so pretty and green.

Ms. Kitty you have LOVELY ink. Wish I was brave enough to have a sleeve, but I'm a wimp about my inner arm.

I''d love to do the webcam thing but I don't have a webcam:(. Pooh.

Raw chicken in the morning? Heck, raw chicken anytime-BLEAH! That's one I've never heard here in the midwest alright. *lol*

At 1:29 PM , Blogger ariandalen said...

Such lovely ladies! Pretty pictures of ALL of you!

I'm not sure that you have to have a webcam to view a webcam. Under YIM "Actions" menu is a "View Webcam" choice, as well as "Invite to View My Webcam" and "Invite to Conference." I guess we'll see tonight. Anyway, my Yahoo IM name is "firerowan."

And yes, there are people who eat all their food raw. The gentleman known as Avocado on SciFi Channels "Mad Mad House" a couple of years ago lives and speaks about the raw food diet. I think he has a website, but I don't remember for sure. ::shrug::

Shouting back to Kitty - I accidentally sacrificed my cell phone to the dark powers (i.e. lost it) but it seems to have worked in my favor. In return, the Universe sent an editor from School Library Journal to my presentation who wants me and my colleagues to write an article about horror fiction for teens. I will get to search a database some day and find my own name. The ultimate pinnacle of achievement for a librarian!

On a sad note, I realized how dependent I am on the bloody technology. Only place I had certain phone numbers and I don't wear a watch so I use it as a clock all the time. So I may have lost some people, and I know I've lost time.

Weird being at a professional convention rather than a fan convention. Not half as much energy, but I'm learning lots and will need a back brace after carrying all my cool librarian swag home (free books, anyone?).

At 2:10 PM , Blogger tuaregblue said...

Ariandalen: thanks for putting me straight. You'd think I'd know how to use my own software..but I don't!*lol*

I think my yahoo id is my email, actually...ok, it's "saoirse5."

At 2:29 PM , Blogger Rubius said...

Vanda - thanks for the info.

please please add me... my yahoo ID is krubius

lol on the chicken run. gotta love crazy-work-rules, eh? hope you enjoy your chicken-fest.

(wierdest thing I ever did with chicken was probably dropping it in jello - by accident... ewww... yellow jello chicken)

At 3:20 PM , Blogger ivenotime said...

i think mine is ivenotime at yahoo - i installed a while back but have never used it - so please add me! Great pics, hope to make it tonight! raw chicken? ewwwww.

At 4:35 PM , Blogger Fabulous Lorraine said...

You don't need a webcam to be in the online part, just a Yahoo idea. We are " therealmalena " so send us an IM if you can't find the conf, we will add you.

You only need the webcam part if you want to SEE us, we will be chatting with any and all.....

At 5:06 PM , Blogger ravyn said...

yeah yeah yeah me me me: ravynluna

And yes, i am working on and at Balticon. Heh, not only was i chair last year and this year, but i'm insane enough to sign up for next year, which means i'm in the very early planning stages for 2007.

i do different things at the con. The chair really just has to be present in case of a problem that someone else can't solve, but, also, i get to see people who work the convention that are either not club members, or just dont't go to meetings. So it's part networking and part feedback. And NO sleep, hehehe

At 5:06 PM , Blogger vandaluna said...

Add me please...vandaluna is my YIM ID. How will I be able to see others who are conferencing?

I've never heard of silica being used in such a manner before. I'll have to check it out. I've used echinacea for many many years for the immune system.

At 5:09 PM , Blogger Kitty Cat said...

Lolo, when you wear Oatmeal out in public, you must learn to expect confusion. No, for real, they ask you that because they have to charge you a tax on food eaten in. so ye shall Pay onto Caesar as ye must do.
Jodyth, i too sacrificed my cell phone to the water gods of wisconsin, in Lorraine's bathtub. a worthy cause. free books are the real prize. can't wait to see you, girl. you Dewey Decimal Doll.

tonight is John Doe @ LArgo, damnit & you guys are webcamming...Exene may show up, FabLo. (but Prince probably won't--HAHAHA)

ps thanks for the sweet comment T-blue.
re:inner arm tattooing, while i don't have kids, i bet it doesn't hurt as bad as childbirth....!

At 5:57 PM , Blogger Fabulous Lorraine said...

GODS, had I but known Kitty! X was the coolest band ever...

Vanda, you can't see anyone but us, sad to say, we are the only webcam that will be going.

At 7:15 PM , Blogger Fabulous Lorraine said...

thanks for partying with us on the blog! we loved it!

At 7:16 PM , Blogger Rubius said...

It was terribly fun... big smiles to everyone.

At 7:19 PM , Blogger ivenotime said...

Jeebus! and AAARRRGGGHHH!!!! How is it I managed to actually stay away from the computer for a mere 26 hours and entirely missed yet another chat thingummy?

Probably just as well, as I would have to get a new Yahoo account and the whole IM thing set up all over again.

Stupid lousy timing. grrr.

At least it sounds like you all had a lot of fun. :) And before I forget, *awesome photos*.

At 2:20 AM , Blogger K said...

One day, one day, I will stay up and make it to one.

I was meaning to post about silica - definitely not the same thing as silicon. I've been taking it in the form of horsetail herbal capsules for about a month. It's supposed to help with tissue renewal in general, not just hair growth.

One side effect is that it can thicken your womb lining and make monthly cramps worse - but apparently if that happens you should just not take it for a week before. (And I didn't get this effect last month, famous last words).

Other supplements you can take for hair growth are biotin (B complex) or MSM, but I don't know so much about MSM.

At 7:14 AM , Blogger Dan Guy said...

Lovely chat!

Unfortunately my freaking internet connection dropped out there at the end and by the time I returned Fablo and Mal were gone. I can't wait to party live at Balticon!
