I meant to post this flashback photo last week for Halloween, but ran out of
steam time. This picture was taken sometime either in the fall of '95 or the spring of '96. My older (*ahem* blog-less) sister, Heather, and I for a brief period of time, played some of those vampire roll-playing games. While vampires may be all the rage right now thanks to Twilight and True Blood, I assure you it was not so much the case back then.
THIS WAS NOT COOL.
Shocking, I know. How could we have not been the epitome of cool with our silver hair, black lips, and sad attempt to recreate sunken cheeks with our darkest shade of eyeshadow.
"Okay, Heather, for this next picture, try to look dead... UNDEAD! I mean UNDEAD."
WHAT WERE WE THINKING??
Clearly we were a pair of hippie (see the tie dye?), militant (the fatigues?), anarchist (aren't all vampires?), music-loving (I think my sister painted that coat herself... nice work, Heather. *snicker*), chuck-wearing, pre-maturely grey-ing vampires... with dirty feet? Ew, Heather, you look like a hobbit!
(Related: We were also band geeks. We had to beat the boys off with a stick.)
