I never intended to keep the name “Color Me Brazen” forever. It was a placeholder, and I actually left it in place a little longer than I meant to. It’s not bad wordplay, but I don’t think it accurately communicates my vision for this blog. “Color Me Brazen”, to me, says “I’m so chipper I just might put a bullet in your brain”. It’s too reminiscent of the cutesy fashion bloggers who address their readers as “darlings”. Nothing against those girls, but I ain’t one of ’em. “My Kingdom for a Hat” suggests more theatrics. It says “I’m probably a secret dancehall girl.”
My URL will stay the same, because it’s a pain in the ass to change those, and because I still want to milk the hits I get from people searching “color me brazen”.
I had my first shoot with Owlhurst Loft Vintage last Thursday. It was my first actual fashion shoot, believe it or not. I’m foremost an art model, and even though the outfits are important, it’s not the clothing I’m modeling so much as the entire aesthetic. Owlhurst Loft, by contrast, is an actual store. I’m modeling the clothes specifically for them to be sold.
Here’s the first round of shots. More to come as I receive them.
The shoes are my own. Everything else will soon be for sale through Owlhurst’s Etsy store.
I would absolutely wear this outfit.
Aside from in theatre, I’d never worn so much makeup. I still think it takes way too much time to do every day, but after seeing these pictures, I’m no longer opposed to doing it at least a couple times a week.
