Yeah, it’s a new month for #alternativecurves, which means a new challenge! Last month we did Alternative Fairytales and I retold Pavel Bazhov’s versions of one of the fairytales from the Perm region in Russia (where I lived once upon a time). It was about The Mistress Of Copper Mountain and was certainly the longest post I’ve ever written! This month the theme is Leader Of The Pack, which for me originally conjures up amazing images of the Pink Ladies, Wanda from Crybaby or perhaps even the amazing Teddy Girls from 50s London. Now, this is gonna be amazing and I can’t wait to see what the other ladies come up with, but, for me, see, I’ve already dressed as Wanda. And, it’s too hot to go as a Teddy Girl, so, I went a bit further with the loose ‘girl gang’ theme and went with ’90’s girl gang’ in a salt-n-pepa-girlfriend-pretty-fly-for-a-white-gal kinda thang… Yeah… you dig? I gotta add, I was in hysterics editing these pictures – I’m so out of my comfort zone with this outfit and the fact I decided a milk crate would make my backyard suddenly be good enough to look like a street corner is making me lose my mind! Ha! Enjoy, I’m gonna go listen to Ain’t Nuthin But a She Thing and None of Your Business now (my two fav Salt-N-Pepa songs).
But, you know, I am the leader of a pack of two?
Hugo’ll be in my pack any day.
