Weird, the image was working for me initially. Stupid thing.



This one might actually be more appropriate for the anime thread. I doubt any one else will get the reference.

It took me a second, but that was actually the very first episode I ever saw of that show, so...

Goddamnit GM. <3

Also I would like to remind the viewers that, as impressive (and attractive, arousing, etc.) I and presumably you all find that half-and-half image...and it *is* impressive, what I'm about to say doesn't take that away... but they presumably had access to some distinct professionals. Lighting, photography, makeup, model, and image-manipulation (Photoshop etc.) all come together to answer your questions as to the how.

Now I'm inclined to say that they used quite a bit of Photoshop there at the end to intensify the difference between the halves, but you *can* do wonders if you slather enough layers of makeup on, and spend enough time with someone tweezering your face.

I never seem to be able to use depilatory cream on my face or neck very successfully. Either it doesn't really affect the hair, or I chemical burn myself.

Enough points, onward thread!

I tried depilatory cream once while I was in the military, shaving every day was a pain and fucking up my face so I looked for alternate options. My proud, rugged, and manly facial hair resisted the laughable attempts of the cosmetics to assail it.

Yeah, to make it weak enough to not destroy the majority of skin types, it's not effective on very tough hair.  Unless you leave it on for a very long time.  Then it irritates the skin anyway...

I hate shaving, though, so I tried it when I was younger.  It was effective on some parts, not on others. 

I grew a beard instead.

The modern electric shavers do the trick, but I try to keep it stubble instead of baby face or dwarf beardling.  I just use a mustache trimmer.
someday I would like to sport the Ron Swanson mustache though.

I shave every 2-3 weeks...usually.  Sometimes I get lazy and just let it grow out for a couple of months.

That's too bad, because a small combustion engine is currently the only way you can power one of those things without tethering.

Also, whipper-snippers is a lovely, evocative name for a gas-powered weed trimmer.

And if no one believes you and it happens, well then you are called a Cassandra at that point.

@Kyomi:
Cassandra was a princess of troy.  The god Apollo gave her the ability to see the future. She predicted that bad things would happen because of Paris her brother, their parents sent him away to grow up.  Cassandra spurred Apollo's advances so he cursed her.  Making it so that no one would believe her.  She predicted Paris and Helen would cause the fall of Troy but no one believed her.
