New Adventures and Experiences

On Wednesday, I was having just a normal day at work when Jessica (friend and co-worker) brought over the magazine that I got to work on last month. It is the September/October issue of Belle Armoire (yet to be released in stores), but the editor got the first copy to look over. This magazine is extra special, not just because it's the first one I got to work on, but also because I got to model one of the featured pieces. Its actually a really cute dress, but made entirely of dryer sheets (it smelled really fresh and clean). It's fun to see some of my work being printed professionally and to also have a picture of me (I realize that its from my chin down haha) in a published mag! 

Spread in Stampington and Company's Belle Armoire publication. On the left side is a picture of me modeling the dryer sheet dress! Kind of cool to see in person! 

In other, not so glamorous news... Jessica's sister's friend needed help at a convention that was being held in Anaheim. It was a Food Protection convention and their company has a mascot... a Bacteria! They call him BAC and their little slogan is "Fight Bac." The job was for me to dress up in their costume for one hour and walk around the convention while taking pictures with people. This didn't sound too bad, and I was promised some money in return. I agreed and this is what I ended up looking like...

FROM LEFT TO RIGHT: 1. I think if people would have known that it was me inside the costume, they may have posed a little differently. 2. Suiting up in the costume. This little waist thing, the air vent/inflation device, was pretty heavy and made me so sore the next day. 3. BAC taking a walk around the crowds. 4. I loved giving people hugs in this costume and I think people enjoyed receiving them too because their faces always looked so happy! 

It was quite the experience. I am glad that I did it because it's a fun story and it's just something that is exciting to say that I've done in my life. The costume was a little bigger and heavier than I expected, so afterwards I was really sore, but it was fun walking around messing with people without them knowing that I was the girl inside! Jessica took really good care of me too, she definitely had my "bac"! These are just a few images, but I have soooo many more that are hilarious to look at. 

Sine having this experience, I have decided that I want to be more of a "yes man (woman)" in life. I want to say "yes" to more experiences in my life, because they will always be great to look back on and you never know what could possibly come out of it. I mean, I can now say that I have modeled and acted hahaha ok, thats a bit of a stretch, but I like the sound of it!

  1. I can't wait for the magazine and I would like a picture of BAC too! Am I sensing a pattern of contrasts? From desert to ocean and from green bacteria to pretty dress? You always keep it interesting! Ha ha!
