Interesting Faces and More Yellow Paper, and Watching People Make Stuff

I've written before about how I love to watch shows where people make stuff. So I watch tattoo shows and fashion design shows (though I'm going to have to take a break from those because they are all becoming so "drama" heavy and light on manufacture); for a couple episodes I watched a show where two women made custom bras for well-endowed women. I gave up on that last quickly because I didn't like the construction skills of one of the women. Also bras have never really been that interesting to me—I wore variety of jog bras for decades until my shoulder injury required I go to Nordstrom's to find a bra I didn't have to pull off over my head. A delightful and knowledgeable young woman helped me to find several suitable, comfortable substitutes, including my wonder bra—the Wacoal Women's Halo Lace Full Coverage Underwire Bra. (It feels as if you have nothing on. It provides great support, surprising since it looks so sheer. It's amazing how good it feels wearing a bra that fits. I got so giddy I brought a couple others to see which one I liked the best. I almost bought a bra which had little pink bows on it—don't worry I stepped back from the brink.)

I must say that the cast of this season's "Face Off" look as if they stepped out of a graphic novel. 

There are some great hairstyles and ears!  

They also seem to be more prone to helping each other—perhaps hefting molds that weigh several hundred pounds keeps you in mind of your interdependency on others?

    I have watched the bra show, too, but a little goes a long way. I pretty regularly tune into the fashion reality shows. I also like the guys who go on the road to search for stuff in country barns and sheds. Love seeing what they find, and what people collect!
