20th Century Meg

These are the earliest pictures I have. They're dated 10 Aug 1999.

This is before I started shaving any body hair, before I bought a decent wig, and before I figured out makeup.

I was learning makeup from two books: Kevin AuCoin's Making Faces and Michael Maron's Instant Makeover Magic.

The first book includes lots of before-and-after's, one of a male-to-female makeover. The second includes lots of makeovers of famous women, plus lessons on how to do different things, such as contours and eyes. Oddly enough, the second book is illustrated in black-and-white.

It also seems it's from before I learned to smile.

If you're laughing right now, I don't think I want to know. I'd rather let myself think I'm an inspiration. :)

And Please please please

tell me I've improved!


  1. Improved? You mean its you? No, you're kiding!

  2. Just like a fine wine, getting better with age

  3. It's the smile that makes the huge difference. You look so much more comfortable when you smile . C

  4. Eleven years later, you actually look younger. And less like Tim Curry.

  5. For early tries, these are quite good; you have come a long way in about ten years.


My day is brighter when I hear from my friends!
