Have you ever got caught in the inevitable Pinterest wormhole? You know what I’m talking about. One little picture of Tom Hiddleston’s face and you are knee deep in pinning every expression he’s ever made. Which leads you to that one photo of him and Benedict Cumberbatch together. Which is just about the most perfect man sandwich ever invented in life.
Of course, once you are in the land of Cumberbatch you end up with a brand new board called “I am Sherlocked” because one pin of that handsome face is not enough. And then you’ve brought Martin Freeman into the mix. Which brings you around to The Hobbit. Soon you have a board called “Over the Misty Mountain” which brings in Dominic Monaghan (and leads to a board called “The Hatch“), Richard Armitage (and a board aptly titled “Sherwood Forest“), and Ian McKellan which reminds you of how much you love wizards!! And once wizards enter the mix, you can’t go on in life without creating a board called “The Boy Who Lived.”
That is a ticking time bomb of new boards about to explode on the Pinterest-sphere. Then you’re just pinning left and right (3 hours have now gone by and you’ve forgotten to eat.) Once you’ve pinned Potter you say to yourself, “There are so many other fandoms I love that are not yet represented.”
Then comes more boards with titles like “1.21 Gigawatts,” “007,” “Glitch in the Matrix,” “We Named the Dog Indiana,” “Timey-Wimey,” “Walkers,” “Stormborn,” “Shiny,” “Welcome to the Hellmouth.” And so on. Being the gigantic nerd you are, you need a “Star Trek” and a “Star Wars” board. Fandom is not complete without these two… duh!!
All of sudden you think to yourself (cause there is no human in sight amid all this pinning) “What about superheroes? They aren’t represented yet either. That’s not even fair of me.” So you come up with boards like “DC vs. Marvel (everyone wins)” and “The Evil League of Evil.” And soon you find that perfect picture of Loki smiling with that devilishly handsome face of his and somehow you’ve ended up right back to pinning the many grins of Tom Hiddleston.
The circle is now complete. And an entire day has wasted away… but if we’re being honest with ourselves… do we really think wasted is the proper word? Nope!
Tomorrow let’s start with a young Harrison Ford and see where that takes us!! The possibilities are endless.
PS… I’m not even kidding. Head over to my Pinterest profile to explore the many wormholes that await you. And happy pinning!
Day 2: Daenerys Targaryen from Game of Thrones
Today’s inspiration is Daenerys Stormborn, Mother of Dragons and the once and future Khaleesi of Westeros. Played by Emilia Clarke on HBO’s Game of Thrones.
Dany has seen many epic hairdos on GoT. Mainly involving intricate braids.
But this look is most current, from season 3 and my particular favorite.
Part hair in the middle. Create two braids starting just off center of your part on each side of your head.
Pin together in the back. Then create another set of braids on each side closer to the ears. Also tie those together in the back.
Finish off by giving all the hanging hair a bit of a curl.
Day 12 – Daenarys Targaryen
Today’s inspiration comes from Daenerys Targaryen (aka Khaleesi) from Game of Thrones.
First I went to a trim store and got a length of silver ribbon. I went through many thought processes in regards to pulling this off. And ribbon just mafe the most sense.
The next part is tricky to describe because I kinda flew by the seat of my pants on this one. I gathered sections of my hair, trying to mimic Daenarys’. And I think it came out pretty well. Considering I couldn’t really see what was going on back there.
