Dressing up as Opera Stars

While Jon was visiting me, we spent an afternoon getting makeup applied all over our faces and hands, nails painted and fake hair applied (for me), feet squished into too small shoes (for Jon), and dressing up to get photos taken. Jon was suffering through terrible allergies and was not enjoying this at all but we both think the photos we ended up with are pretty neat. Here are some photos of the process of getting dressed up and the unedited photos. I have to wait until June to get the final edited photos back. The whole thing took about 2 1/2 hours from start to finish. Enjoy!

Starting out:
Adding more makeup:
Jon's least favorite part:
Adding my fake hair one loop at a time:

And now the poses. They placed us exactly - posing us from head to toe:

I would really like to find a place like that here in Shanghai. I am sure there has to be a place. I just have to find it. I don't know if I could convince my husband to wear makeup, though.
