“You’re Harajuku!!!” aka my quick trip back to L.A.

Bye, San Francisco!!!!!!!


The first thing I did when I arrived at the Cypress, CA Courtyard Marriott was order room service. It was like the oiliest food I’d ever eaten. Way to make fish and veggies unhealthy, dudes!!!!!!


I proceeded to work on some new mitts. I haven’t quite figured out this pair yet……. still futzing.


Bacon and Egg mitt in progress:


I didn’t want to take the toothpaste from home and leave Hairy stinky-mouthed, so I thought there would be some in the hotel room when I got there. WRONG!!!! I trudged downstairs to the front desk and scored all this bounty!!!!


I went to bed around 3am, chatting and working on tshirt graphics, and then woke up at 7am to be picked up for my photoshoot. Sans makeup. I never leave the house without makeup. This was very humbling.


Glasses didn’t really help.


Fast forward, we drive to Huntington Beach for the studio shoot. I get my hairz and makeup did. This was the 2nd makeup look. I don’t usually do colored eyeshadow………. I feel kinda like an angry samurai. I took this pic after the shoot while working on stuff on my computer at the studio.


I am hoping it reads more subtly in the photos!!!! I’m just not a huge makeup person, so it’s hard for me to tell if I look bad in it, or if I’m just not used to it.

Fast forward to 16 hours after my makeup was applied and I’m finally back home and need to take a shower.


I felt really scary wearing this look all day. After the shoot, we had lunch with the photog and his assistants, and then my manager/partner and I sat down at the studio with our laptops to pow wow about graphics for tees. We did this for lik3 3-4 hrs. Then he took me to LAX where I sat for 3 hours because my flight home was delayed. The lady sitting next to me in the airport was like, “You’re Harajuku!!!!!” Hide me!!!!!!!!!

        I can’t wear makeup at all since I have dermatitis. If I do I break out like a teen. πŸ™

    Oh no, what an experience. The hotel food looks gross!
    Mitts are looking good though. Can’t wait to see how the bacon and egg ones turn out.
    The makeup you do yourself definatley looks better, too much pink for everyday on the makeup artists look.

    1. Twinkie Chan says:

      Yeah, they make everything really exaggerated for photoshoots because the studio lights can wash you out and stuff, so it looks a bit cray cray (for me) to walk around the airport in it!

    ok you’re probably gunna think I’m weird but I love how you look in the no make up pics xD Especially the one with the glasses haha!

    1. Twinkie Chan says:

      oh man it was so terrifying meeting ppl for the first time with no makeup and all shiny no powder nothing! not even hair done! eeep!

  4. Sandy says:

    I think it’s really brave to show a photo wearing no make-up, especially for someone who usually wears a lot make-up. I am not saying that it looks bad without the make-up but very unusual and as you said you feel uneasy about it. Therefore I admire it even more when you show these pics.
    And I love your funny pics when you make faces πŸ™‚
    Oh and your t-shirt is really cute.
    Can’t wait to see the outcome of that photoshoot πŸ™‚


    1. Twinkie Chan says:

      Well, I figure, we all know that nobody is perfect. I certainly am not. Being gross is pretty funny to me, so, I’m willing to share that laughter with everyone πŸ™‚

  5. Maggi says:

    It’s amazing how much make-up it takes to make a person look like they’re barely wearing any in a photo! lol I can’t wait to see the result of the shoot! Bacon and egg mitts? Awesome!

  6. Sharla says:

    I love love love your pink kitty tee!!!! I don’t wear makeup at all and that’s just because I’m lazy. πŸ˜›

  7. Elaine says:

    You are a brave, funny, girl.

  8. Annais says:

    I think the pink makes your eyes pop! I wear pink eye shadow just about everyday though…oh and I wish I was Korean…I’m weird. P.S. I got you that night shirt that says “I don’t do mornings!” So you can keep warm and hilarious while you stay up til 6am.
