I was a model for a local fashion show. Apparently the pool of “plus size” models is quite small here in Alaska. There is no other explanation for my being asked.
Anyway. It was fun. Spent the day in some beautiful clothes, had my makeup done by a professional makeup artist, and my hair done about 15 times over the course of the evening.
A local not-quite-pro hockey team served as our escorts for the evening. So those adoring, good looking young men you see in the photos, yeah, they had to be there and smile. But they were very good sports about the whole thing, gentlemen through and through (well, except for the 2 that got thrown out for being drunk and obscene).
A couple of my friends went as they both needed a night of belly laughs, and Julia took a bunch of photos.
