The Headmistress
Artist | Hobbyist | Literature
You have entered the realm of The Headmistress. Be warned...if you are of sound mind and body...then I do not want you within my land's borders. Only the truly and wonderfully insane can grace my gardens.

Within my palace walls, you shall find me, engaging myself in numerous artistic endeavours. I sit at my desk and carve out words upon pixelated stone, I use my shutterbox to capture images of the world around me, I take up my pens and ink and attempt to sketch what my brilliantly botched mind comes up with, and I take images from the outside world and attempt to manipulate them into works of art, using only the best software that I have yet to figure out.

If you cannot accept that which I love, here in my beloved land of Fan-Dôm, then you are not welcome. I have many sectors of this land that I live in and take part in. As of current, I am in the rebellion, fighting alongside those who flock under the sign of the Mockingjay. But I have also been taken by the likes of Sherlock, Harry Potter, Wallander, The Hobbit/LOTR, and many more.

I humbly thank my Vice-Queen, :icongoosie-boosie: for her unending loyalty (and for my wonderful ID, which she made just for me!! ♥♥). She is my skulker in the Tumblr shadows to hunt out new and exciting news and gifs for me. In return, I grant her Maganderings in the form of words so that she may read them and enjoy the little ship we built and sailed together.

I am a fair and generous ruler. I enjoy speaking with my minions, my loyal subjects, as it gives me great pleasure. Do not be daunted by my title. Should you wish to speak to me, your request for an audience will not be refused. If, however, you should cross might very well be the last thing you ever do.

The Headmistress has SPOKEN.

Journal History

Greetings, my darling minions, from the depths of a rather cold Canadian night. I sit here, by a nicely crackling fire, and I write to you all. I hope I find you in good spirits and good health.

These past two weeks have been an absolute whirlwind for me, so much so that I barely remember going through them. Between doing inventory at work (until 11:40 at night, only to get up at 6 the next morning) and having some extra shifts, to freaking out-slash-preparing for the first photo-shoot where we will have pictures for our portfolios in class, it's been crazy. I'm absolutely exhausted. But I have the long weekend off completely, so I hope to sleep in, make donuts, and revel in the nothingness.

I think the photo-shoot went all right, though I haven't seen the pictures yet. My model, someone whom I never met until the day of the shoot, was friendly and obliging, and I must've done something right, because she wore the makeup I put on her to the gym later on that day. All she wanted me to do was soften the contour (contouring has to be heavy for photos to add depth, but looks rather silly in real life :P), but kept all the eye and lip colour. Yay! And this was a veteran model, too, who does fitness shoots and the like. Then, just today, we went on our first public outing to the local family resource center and did makeup for some of the women who frequent it. It was a lot more fun than I imagined, though I'm not sure if the first woman I made-over was pleased with the look I did. She wasn't scrubbing it off, though, and still had it on by the end of our time there, so I guess that was good.

My teacher continues to disappoint me, with snide comments and unprovoked and unprofessional remarks to some of our quietest and most compliant girls, probably because she thinks she can bully them into listening to her. I remain tactful simply because that was how I was raised, but my God, if I were to get a chance to call her out on some of the nasty or downright stupid things she's done or said, there would be no tact to be found. Honestly, I am SO glad that there's only a few more weeks of this. Though I am also frightened that we really didn't get the education we should have thanks to her incompetence (the afternoon class is getting demos and things explained to them...but they lick her boots, and that's what she likes. We don't.). So I'm not sure if I feel ready to go into the world calling myself a makeup artist in any capacity. Oh well. I shall have to see what happens next.

Enough of my bitching, I s'ppose. OH. Question...does anyone know where to get some decent quality screencaps? I reaaaaaally wanna make a Sherlock graphic with scenes from The Abominable Bride, but the one's I've found are either too small to use for a decent graphic, or promo shots. Any help would be awesome.

I love all my minions!! *huggles*

One word. Headmistress. Potential for a slightly different meaning.

But yes, I am the Headmistress. I have been and always will be. Glad to make your acquaintance.

Yes, one word. One little space can make a huge difference! Sorry:( (Sad)

It is forgiven. The Headmistress is thoughtful that way. And don't you forget it.
