I called Gina about a dozen times. This is what happens when you give people their children back, they take them off and do stuff with them and don't answer their phones. I probably would have laid an egg if it had taken her even 2 seconds longer to finally get back in cell phone range, within 60 seconds, I had secured Britney to go along. Egg Averted.
Chandler's outlook changed then and she went to her closet to pick out something to wear. Then she lamented they would have to go to bed early so they did not have 'tiny squinty exhausted eyes'. Britney voiced concern over my severe lack of coffee. We had a few discussions about hair. Mainly, we had no idea what to expect, Erin had given me a good basic lay-out. It's an onstage event, there would be someone to do hair and make-up, they can be barefoot and they need clean hair. We need to be there at 8, the traffic is awful in the mornings and we would be done in time for lunch.
Let's see what happens next!
We got there with no trouble, though I had a moment of worry when Nuvi said to turn on 'gal-leria', rhymes with malaria. It's on Galleria. She has issues with other road names, too. Though she says 'Grandad's Casa de Cheese Whiz' with no problem.
|We are early!|
Erin arrives and gets right to work, getting the girls made up herself and picking what they would wear from an assortment of what we brought and what she brought. The girls were excited and giggly, everyone was so nice, they took great care of them.
Britney was done up first, so she was whisked off through a glass door to have her hair fixed and I stayed with Chandler.
The second Erin had Chan done, they were off to the hair area as well, so I followed behind and took a few shots.
|The girls were out in the hall PDQ because the event was starting and they had to scoot to get in there.|
Erin used the girls as a visual demo for the class, the girls showed off their first look and then there was a quick change of hair and an adjustment of the make-up to show how the make-up can be applied in different combos for different looks.
They got a round of applause and left the stage while Erin went over a few more points about the new line and the girls and I went out into the hall where they bounced around like pinballs, that Lackey kid mainly.
After a quick touch-up of the liner on Chan, I took several more shots of both girls.
