so these things have been HAUNTING me for months!  i was not looking forward to them at all.  but with the help of our very own abattyref (thanks alex!!)  they turned out to be much less of a headache than I thought =)  However, I do admit, I was going to add a very fancy belly band...but it just would cost more money, take more time, and honestly who cares?!  i just wanted them to be done.  SO, here they are =)

Done by Sarah Giovinetti!  I like the way it turned out, but there's some things I would change.  I think a little more blush, eyeliner under my eyes and less pinky lip stick (and not so "above" my lips, i think it looks drag queenish) lol but easily fixable things!
