HNT-I Get Dyed With a Little Help From My Friend

It has been said that my fascination with all things tie dyed is bordering on pathological. However, it was also suggested a number of weeks ago in an offhand comment by Jocelyn that I tie dye my eyelashes. Well, that just got the creative juices flowing (no, not the squeeze bottles of dye...though I have been doing that again too) and I took a couple pictures and sent them off to my photoshopping wizard pal, Bsoholic. I had a couple of ideas and he worked his magic on those and then added some of his own twists.


I don't wear make-up but get a load of this eyeshadow! Pretty cool huh?


I know not everyone shares my appreciation of tie dye, but beauty is in the eye of the beholder. It's just how I see things.




Color me impressed with Bsoholic's mad skillz!

Bsoholic is da man! I love his Photoshop work. It's inspiring.

We used to have a cool store that sold tie dye stuff in Chico (where we last lived). It went out of business and I was bummed. I liked it more for the candles, the incense, and the wraps. I love it when my wife wears wraps. Hint, hint, Mrs. Z!

Happy HNT!

I hate it when my lawyer reviews my comments before I publish them.

Trippy. ;)

barman said...

They are all awesome in their own way. I think the middle is the best.

Every day on my way into work I drive past a parked ice cream truck. I swear it is tie dyed. I so could see yo selling ice cream out of that truck. The only question is what would you play over the speakers. LOL

Very nice. Glad it was only photoshopped. You had me worried when I saw the first picture.

MONA said...

Lime! HOW LIME!

rob said...

next time i see doctor robert, i'll ask him what your obsession means

hhnt, rob

ps - i went to mackinac island as a kid too.

Bunny said...

Very cool tie dye!! Glad you enjoyed your time in MI. I lived in Alpena for a while and spent summers on Mackinac for many years! Don't care for pasties though, but my husband attended college in the U.P. and loves the dumb things. Too heavy for me. Ah well!
HHNT!

Charles said...

Wow Lime,
I was like the Barman, concerned until I read it was Photoshopped. Really tie dying your face could put a hurtin' on ya. Cool though. I miss the spirit of love we had back in the day, today's music is so full of hate and violence. Bring back the love.

James Goodman said...

wow, that is too cool, Lime. Happy HNT.

Oh, and you've been tagged. :D

SignGurl said...

M said...

Awesome pictures!

Hm, wearing real make up is kind of like photoshop. It's an illusion.

Polt said...

LOVE the eye lid. The eye's kinda cool. The whole face..just freaky!

HAPPY HNT!

steve said...

What not to love about that!

bsoholic said...

Haha! Thanks for the praise (from everyone). :D

I think I like the top one (just the eye lid) best, because it looks the realest. To me and apparently a couple of commenter's too... heh, heh. Less is more eh? ;)

Happy HNT.

ShyRocket said...

Hypersonic said...

Verr' nice.

rose_michelle said...

That is really cool! My turn, my turn! I want pink! ... Sorry for a second there I was five again. That really looks awesome though!

BTExpress said...

Tie dyed eye lids, now I've seen everything. Good job.

PS
I wore the tie dyed tee shirt Lori gave me today and got a couple of compliments from the cashers about it.

SeaRabbit said...

Real hippie style!!! Love it... ;-) even if I missed the train by a few years... ;-(

jillie said...

What a tripy HNT!!! That middle one would make a great contact for Halloween...ooooeeeeeooooo!! (scarey music in the background here)

Good job on the photoshop I wish I could do that stuff.

Cheers to ya!!

;o)

Jocelyn said...

Honey, I am mad glad for the offhand comment! I must make more.

And when I first looked at the photos, I thought you'd done those eyes on yourself; glad to know that photoshop is the wizard. Otherwise, I'm scared of you and your fine motor control

Cosima said...

I wonder whether it's possible to do the first one for real. It looks lovely... the other two look a little on the wicked side...lol

Have a nice weekend!

KFarmer said...

Whoa! Those are simply put- AWESOME!
