    Sounds like a really wild Super Hero group.

    Hey....I watch Star Trek TNG, is that so wrong? *hangs head in shame*

And now that I think of it, I'm not that pale.
    then nope, i'm guessing you aren't goth.

    I'm still new when it comes to photography. Did the film actually get solarized (I never heard of that, but there is plenty for me to learn) or were the prints solarized?

    Either way, the result had a dream like quality, which I like.

    The film was solarized. (It was briefly exposed to light.) The film developer fed black & white film into a machine which broke during the developing. I then took the negatives to another developer who processed the almost-ruined film. I was upset at first, but some of the pictures turned out quite nicely.

    I did a search just now on solarization, and here are some instructions: http://www.jafaphotography.com/solarize.htm

    My Colette is a French novelist and an infamous hedonist. (i.e. she seduced her stepson when she was in her late forties. )

    Now I just need someone to play Missy, Napoleon's niece and her on-and-off lesbian lover.


    ...
    Have I mentioned Colette is my hero?

    I think I might go as a Survivor. I'll just buy a buff and dig out an outfit that a castoff has worn before. I'll put the buff in my hair. I guess Halloween is a big deal around here and people really go all out for it. Should be fun.

    Shayla, thanks for the info. Regarding the broken machine, my instructor always talks about "happy mistakes" or "new opportunities". I really like his POV.

    I have come up with a new idea. I'm going to be a bohemian. Or maybe I'll be Bernard Marx. I'll have to wait until Halloween to be sure, though.
