CC CHRONICLES: Secret Agents Margot & Cloris

Published by cctadmin on November 22nd, 2015

______________________________________________________________________________________

Margot and Cloris are time-traveling British secret agent sisters who solve murder mysteries for a top government organization. Both have been trained to lead lives of espionage but little is known about their family background, other than that their mother and father were also secret agents who mysteriously died when the girls were babies.

Margot is twenty-five years old.  She has dark brown hair and is the brawn of the duo, advanced in martial arts, boxing, gymnastics, and weaponry.   She can scale buildings and speak 6 different languages.  She is rebellious, headstrong and moody; she lives on the edge and throws herself into her under-cover cases with passion.  Being the elder of the two, Margot is also protective, fiercely loyal – and she has a penchant for driving fast cars, cigarettes and intriguingly dangerous men across the times.  She can also ride motorcycles and run extremely well in high heels, fuelled by the burning question of how her parents died and why.

Cloris is twenty-three.  Fair-haired and quiet, she is the brains to her sisters brawn.  Driven by curiosity she is advanced in research, psychology, technology, religion and law. Cloris’ mission is to catch villains and help the ‘good guys’ tho she often learns that the world and people within it are not always black or white in terms of ‘good’ or ‘bad’.  She loves literature, white wine and has a soft spot for brainy underdogs.  Very perceptive and knowing, Cloris is a loner who thrives most under pressure; at ease in the world of spying and murder mystery. She too can run fast in heels however she would always prefer capturing culprits and criminals by means of brains vs. brawn; hence her penchant for getting people to talk, and being clue-based and logical.

The sleuths/secret agents have spent their lives devoted to their missions; which involve the ability to travel back and forth throughout time. Receiving assignments from Superiors in Command they otherwise work independently to complete tasks, which are to retrieve information and solve mysteries.  Time-travelling gives them opportunity to ‘become’ characters undercover, complete with names and identities. Because they work for an organization that is founded in corruption they often come face to face with double agents, assassins, cold-blooded murderers and of course, plenty of dead bodies, friends, allies and lovers.  Despite any given assignments degree of danger or difficulty – the girls always end up on top; mystery solved and back in present time.  One case ends and another begins. That is the glamourous life of Secret Agents Margot and Cloris.

CC CHRONICLES: Dorothy’s Hair post ‘Wizard of Oz’

Had a great time styling wigs for the Flin Flon production of Wizard of Oz – and several weeks after the big show I find myself taking out the braids and donning the wig for posterity.

CC CHRONiCLES: SAM II / A Character Study….

Published by cctadmin on March 2nd, 2014

I like telling people “I scored head from a local in town for $10.00.”  Its the truth, see the proof below!

As someone who grew up loving film or just pop culture in general –  I’m interested in having fun with hair as a creative expression – hence all my years of playing with dolls or styling friends hair (which they always seemed to love, much to my enthusiasm).  Hair is in fact, an extension of ourselves – and even though I don’t have a head of full hair  - I can still see it somehow as an extension of myself.  Hair is fun.  Hair therapy seems a natural path to engage with.

As such – I put a request on Flin Flon Traders Post, seeking out a head of hair for which I could then be inspired, be it by the films, TV shows, or music I enjoy – and in turn, create.   My fortune was that within a few days a local girl looking to sell her ‘head’ posted it and by the grace of a few attentive folks who then made me aware of it, I contacted her and the rest is history. $10.00 later and I’d bought head.

After about 1.5 months I have come up with the below gallery of images, each taken after my ritualistic night of ‘hair therapy’ while watching t.v. or film.  I limited props to no more than 3, and thus began sculpting, teasing, curling, pinning, straightening – you name it.   The hair has never been cut as the objective was to experiment with transformation and ‘illusion’ of as many different styles or ‘characters’ as I could.

It was a lot of fun and I’d like to thank the folks who lent various hair ties and scarves to help the cause!

I hope you enjoy these as much as I enjoyed creating them.  Feel free to comment! (Double click for full image)
