To the best of my recollection, we haven’t had a notable case of Sun-In on Promtacular! yet, which is quite astonishing. Sun-In, for those of you who don’t know(?), is a spray-in hair bleach that was supposed to react with the sun to give your hair a delicate, “lightened by the sun” look. Except it turned everyone’s hair a sickly orange. Just how orange? Depended on what color your hair was to begin with. I know this? Because EVERYONE tried it, and many of us tried it more than once.
Notice how Elesha’s hair isn’t NOT blond? But isn’t really NOT orange, either? Ah. Sun-In. ‘Twas magical.
I heart Elesha for also adding a perm and spray (and possibly mousse, who’s to say) and going with the full-on sideswept ‘do. WAY TO COMMIT!
As for her dress, well. It is the shiny. I’m just a little disappointed that it is so plain. I mean, when dress is so iridescent it looks like it might be cellophane it certainly doesn’t also need lace and bows and ribbons. But that’s never stopped dressmakers in the past. So all things considered, this shiny dress is practically conservative.
I wish we could have seen the shoes.
I’m sorely disappointed by the backdrop. It’s totally, totally fine.
I do LOVE the expression on Elesha’s date’s face. It’s as if he’s saying, “HEEEEEEEEEEEEEY.” Maybe he’s trying to figure out if the dress really is made of cellophane?
