The end of the beard! The vanity!steemCreated with Sketch.

I



decided that I was tired of the fuzz on my face, and now it is gone. I feel much more comfortable this way.

It has been quite some time since I exerted much control over my appearance. In Sofia it is very easy to find discarded clothes in sometimes very odd places, and I had managed to have quite a good look, in my opinion.

I am really not that vain, but I hate looking bad. I have a keen eye for aesthetics and I know very well I am looking frumpy and weird... it bothers me a lot actually, but not so much it precedes other more important things.

Right now though, I am mainly focused on saving for my settling once and for all after too long wandering. So if I look a bit like I dressed myself in the dark, that is probably because I did.

But when I am settled, watch out. Part of my workshop plans involve sewing machines, awls and lasts... My mother and sister are both artists and clothing designers, and I am also. I am looking forward to making my own designs, that have lived in my head for much too long...

I am so excited for you! You look great and I simply cannot wait to see what your mind creates in clothing design. You've got the whole package going on @l0k1, keep going and don't second guess yourself or look back. :)

My friend @l0k1, you're younger like that. Congratulations. :)

Well hello handsome!
I just learned a few new things about you. I hope that you find some place to settle. I'm certain your designs are going to be fantastic :)

Wow! Looking Goood! Very Handsome and Great job ! 😚👍👌😉
For those who never saw a picture of you , heres a Before photo ! Steem On!

Nice! You should probably draw out those designs too!
Btw there's some markdown/html artifact above and below your pic

stupid markdown... I fixed it. the renderer in eSteem also doesn't render all correctly.

Yes, I will draw up the designs when I get settled and can start working on them. Boots are my first priority, and I need a cast of my calf and foot from each leg.

Sick! Is it gonna be leatherwork? Would be interested to read up on your process :)

hell yeah, leather of course, kangaroo hide if i can get it, but maybe for prototypes canvas and goathide.

Looking good man 👍
