I could write about something truly Victorian steampunk and write about the World Steam Expo in Dearborn, MI that will be ending today, but to be honest I am not sure what I can really discuss, especially since the description is probably going to sound like every other description of every other steampunk event out there. To learn more check out the event's website here. And view this YouTube video of the attractions that were expected at the event for your enjoyment.
Now, on to silly and relatively unrelated things. While at a Memorial Day picnic yesterday my cousin's boyfriend showed up with a mohawk, something he had promised to do around Easter. After duly poking fun at his hairstyle (a family tradition- we tease each other about everything, from fashionable UGG boots to the too pink color of someone's nail polish to the type of bandana one of the uncles is wearing), he then reminded me of a promise I had made if he did, indeed, show up with a mohawk- to dye my hair purple. I have until Independence Day to do this.
So here's my question- how do I go about dying my hair purple? I have never dyed my hair. The only unnatural chemicals that have touched my dirty blonde hair was the stuff used for two perms I got in my teenage years. I want to dye my hair a dark purple., but probably for only one month. What sort of dye should I use? Should I go with a semi-permanent or a permanent hair dye? Can anyone recommend any particular brands?
