My laundry room is not nearly this big. Ha!

Im here all alone today... So, it's just the dogs or me as a model... well... and the washer and dryer.

Hubby's shirt and tie on me, of course.. and me in the washer.

I do think I look rather handsome with a beard.
I saw this idea years ago and have wanted to do it ever since.

Silly me didn't remember it until twelve days into the challenge. *rolleyes*

Anyway... I had fun shooting and editing this.

Five shots:

Washer (actually my dryer)

Wall shot for background. I know I could have used a texture shot from my archival shots, but I actually just sat at my computer and took a shot of the wall to my left. So much easier than searching. :D

My face (masculinized, thank you very much!)

My body (with Hubby's shirt and tie on)

Inside of shirt collar... which I could have created more easily than altered, in retrospect..

Oh! And added in the chair tops, although they aren't seen while I was sitting in it.

I sent it to Hubby while he was gone and he says it needs more "story"... since no one would brainwash himself. It takes two people to brainwash someone.

I say that's the fun/interesting part. We watch all kinds of stuff, voluntarily... so we brainwash ourselves.

What says you?

Normally I go Black and White to hide all of my editing skills. This time I went all rogue.

This was fun! Thank you to whoever suggested the topic.

Congrats on the ribbon. I did not recognize the model at all. Looking now, the eyes could have been the tip off. You do make a fine looking man. I would stand a chance against against you in the Crossdress challenge.

Sometimes I wish I could do that to clear my head! Very funny. Wash and wear.

My pick for a ribbon, great idea, well executed. The only thing is Im a little concerned as to the gap where the head should be - I feel the right hand side of the collar should be more visible. But overall, thanks for a good picture which made me smile.
