Holi Celebration

This is inspiring. Holi is a Hindu celebration of life. In 2010 Holi will be celebrated on March 1st. You can read more about this glorious holiday here. These photos of Holi celebrations are to guide us in our next shoot.
I just ordered some of this lovely paint, in the following colors. If anyone would like to donate to the cost of the paints, that would be nice. I was thinking $2 per person, though it isn't mandatory.

For the shoot on August 20th, We will be combining the face-paint idea with the floral idea by decorating each other with powder paint and flowers!!!

I was thinking...

Tissue Paper Flowers!!!! To tie the themes together. Otherwise, The fancy flowers might contrast too much with our slightly-messy selves. Flower tutorial here.

What do you think?

Close-up options...

#1 Face Paint: I love this idea because not only do we get to be beautiful, but we also get to be creative and crazy! Everybody needs to get out of their comfort zone every once in a while. If we do this idea, I'd love to get together at 7:00 to help each other get ready. We can pick good colors for one another and then style each other!

#2 BIG HAIR and MAKEUP: This one is a little less gutsy but would still be quite a lot of fun! It's always a blast to feel pretty. I'm thinking huge, curly hair, and our best flirty expressions.

#3 80's glamour shots: The soft-focus look with feathered bangs and HUGE earings. We all wished we could be that cool when our older siblings and cousins were doing it.

#4 Floral themed hairstyles:There is no end to the pretty possibilities with this one! If we decide to do this one, I have plenty of flowers. I think it would be fun to see how each person's style would come out in their hair choices.

VOTE by leaving a comment with your TOP TWO favorites. ANYONE can vote. Even if you're not coming. We need your help to choose. :)

The Fisherman's Wife:

Layers, braids and waves, boots, tights, mix light fabrics with heavy fabrics, light and airy, flowers in your hair, whimsicle, romantic...

Also take a look at the post below for ideas. I think they kind of go together. Mix and match.

Be bold, do what you want and do it fully.
