Bullard Composition. Part One.

The Bullard Composition Fashion Show is an annual fundraiser to benefit the ASB (Associated Student Body).  Originally, the fashion show showcased formal wear for prom, but now includes casual wear.  17 years later, the show is still entirely produced and run by students (directors, ticket sales, business affairs, choreography, fashion selection, etc) with juniors and seniors as the cast (models) and crew. 

This is Lauren's first (and only) year as a Composition participant.  The students prepared and practiced for almost three months for three performances over two days (last Friday and Saturday).

Three performances -- I watched two and volunteered one in the girls' dressing room. Parent volunteers helped girls get dressed (lifting a prom dress over b-i-g hair without getting makeup or facial glitter on it isn't easy) as well as keeping track of the loaned clothing/jewelry while trying not to trip on the girls' piles of shoes, clothing, and personal belonging strewn about.

For the female cast members, there was a lot (seriously, a lot) of primping and preening in the dressing room. Planet Hair and Preen Salon provided hairstyles while Paul Mitchell Salon provided make-up.  The Band Room was transformed for 24 hours into the girls' dressing room.

Hair curls for Lauren.

Her makeup is airbrushed.

Lauren had foundation and cheeks airbrushed.

... then, airbrushing to cover legs marked by softball sliding.

Ho hum. [yawn]  Beauty takes time and patience.

Vibrant eyeshadow colors.

Gold glitter for the lids.

Blue glitter cheek star.

Face paint.

Lauren's green eye glitter (btw, God didn't give Lauren those eyelashes. They're from CVS).

Lots of hair poufing.

This hair has the volume turned up.

Love the hair and the beautiful smile!

More in the next post!
