“Ain’t it good to be the coach?”

# 6 Lunch at O’Nutter’s

“Wet nut contest!”

# 7 Girl You Don’t Need Makeup

…but for this costume you actually need a ton of facepaint!


EVENTS | Fall Headshot Event
We had an amazing time at our headshot event, thank you to everyone who came out to make this a success.

We also want to give a special shout-out to our PHENOMENAL hair and make-up team Alfonso Hernandez and Sarah Swofford! They are not only amazing artists, but they were just completely on-top of their game during this shoot. While juggling a hectic 3-set shoot, they also worked as our hype-team; they kept the energy level super high while simultaneously doing hair and make-up touch ups. We couldn’t have done it without them, and we think the photos speak for themselves. Thanks, Alfonso and Sarah!

“Ain’t it good to be the coach?”

This one is a lot of fun and not too much effort. If you’re wondering why the wine looks a bit cloudy in this photo, it’s because I used apple cider vinegar mixed with water — so nasty, but a great option if you’re not much of a wine drinker! If you haven’t seen the video, check it out at the bottom of this post.

*Bonus points for drawing Amy’s widow’s peak at the top of your head for the full look!

DIY | Last-Minute DIY “Inside Amy Schumer” Inspired Halloween Costume — Plain Jane Detective
This is the lowest maintenance option, I actually took this picture right after going to the gym! The worse you look the better your Plain Jane Detective costume. If you haven’t seen the video, check it out for free on Comedy Central’s website.

* Surprisingly the crucial glasses piece was the hardest to find, so I ended up making a pair by popping the lenses out of a cheap set of aviators which worked great!

DIY | Hand-Lettered Jock Jams T-Shirt
We had a cool vintage shirt that just said “Jock” and thought it would be infinitely cooler if it had “Jams” added to it. Brush-style lettering seemed like the perfect typographic style to contrast against the collegiate letters on the shirt, and from there the project fell into place.

After methodically filling-in the letters with seed beads and iridescent sequins, we flipped the hoop over and brushed matte decoupage medium over all of the loose threads, making sure to completely overlap the edges of the letters. The decoupage medium provides a three-fold benefit: it secures the loose beading threads (so they don’t loosen over time), it discourages future fraying of the cut edges of the letters, and it stiffens the fabric enough that the letters don’t warp when being placed as appliques.

Once the decoupage medium was dry, we cut out the letters one-by-one. Then, after pinning onto the shirt, we hand-stitched the letters onto the shirt. The finished shirt can be machine-laundered inside-out on the delicate cycle.
