My Own Font!

September18

Thanks to Brian at Morning Toast.com via Twitter, I was able to make my own font!  Brian linked to FontCapture and after following the directions, poof!, I can “write” on the computer.  I call it Becky G skinny Font. (I also made a Becky G Font which was made with a thicker marker).

Below is an image of a word document with my font being used:

What My Appearance May Be In 60 Years!

September18

I decided to be an old “me” for Halloween so I did some digging online, researching how people age.  I saw some Hollywood make up videos aging a 27 year old gal into a very old lady.  Since I don’t have 10,000 dollars for a professional to make a plastic overlay for my face, I will have to stick with stage make-up.

As I browsed the web, I also saw some Photo-shopped images of Hollywood stars as old people.  So, last night, I spent 3 hours on my own “older” self in Photoshop.  I added cloudy color in my eyes to depict glaucoma, sagged my cheeks, eyelids, and chin, grayed my hair, and used the burn tool to draw in each wrinkle, along with yellowing my teeth and thinning my lips.

I wonder if when I get to be 87 or so, if I will actually resemble this.  Only time will tell!  I only hope that is isn’t before 60 years that I look like this…

Below is a before and after picture of me, current and aged:
