Haute Under The Collar at Vampire’s Masquerade Ball PDX & 90 Days Of Beauty Challenge!

Today kicks off my 90 days of beauty challenge that I’m going to try to finish.  Although not makeup related I thought this post was filled with beauty none the less!

Emily and I were very excited to head down to Portland for the Vampire’s Masquerade Ball to vend for Haute Under The Collar.  It was the tenth anniversary of the event so it was expected to be bigger and better than ever and we’re always down for a road trip.    The place was packed by 9:30!  There were some amazing costumes and tried to get photos of our client in our ties.

Emily all set up and ready to go!
Here I am, ready to sell some sparklies!
A fellow vendor and happy customer!
We had a lot of time to sit around and take pics of ourselves while we were waiting for the bar to open and for them to let everyone in!
Emily got TONS of compliments on her lashes. I think her lashes were the most popular of the night!

Another happy customer and stunning couple.
Mad Marquee came down to visit us and keep us company for a while. Oh and he bought us drinks!
Another client and amazing looking couple!
And we found Iva's long lost brother.

Haute Under The Collar Photo Shoot

We had a wonderful photo shoot for some new Haute Under The Collar ties.   We lucked out and got some of the most amazing models!   Paul O’Connell of POC photo took all the wonderful shots and I’ve got a few sneak peeks for you all before I start listing them on etsy.  We always try to have fun at our shoots and just let our amazing models roll with whatever is it they want to do!
