Beauty and the Beard

What ever happened to those fabulous glamour shots that were so popular in the 80's? Do you miss 'em as much as I do? Then you'll be glad to know they've been recycled (and look better than ever) as Glamour Beards! And aren't they fetching?

Hi name is Gams...("Hi, Gams!")...and I am a Shop-o-holic! I admit's taken over my life, especially when they have programs that make my addiction soooo much easier to PHOTOFUNIA, which has image recognition and does most of the work for you...which is how I ended up with this collection of potential GAM-O-RAMA headers! Which one do YOU like best?

......And then...this happened!

It's Not My Fault, I Swear...

Haaaahaa! So much for being a conscientious blogger. I swear, everytime I get on a roll, either my wi-fi waffles, my cable crashes or my pc poops out! Is there any hope for the tech-challenged among us? I'm barely keeping up myself,  and fear I may be losing the race, things are moving so fast lately......

One thing I have kept pretty good tabs on is my GAMsMAG on Tumblr! You'll find the most delightful 'pairings' of great stuff I've found on Pinterest, Tumblr, Flickr, etc etc etc...and if you go to the archives, you can actually make a game of figuring out which 'pairs' of pics go together...hours of fun for the whole damn fam-damly!

I'm putting together a lovely fairy tale for my next blog entry...whenever it may stay tuned! Here's a quick preview...

Connie's Costumes

Lately, as I've been trying to keep up with my vintage lifestyle/beauty commitment, I've been paying more attention to my coiffure. Ever since I loved Lucy rockin' the Italian Cut in the Black Wig episode I've completely fallen for it! Originally themed on Gina Lollabrigida's chic look, the Italian Cut looked great on many a mid-century maiden, including Liz Taylor idol of the moment...Connie Francis!

Ok, I'm no Connie Francis and I realize I can never hope to be that gorgeous until my next any case, check out my redo of the 'do...

Speaking of Connie...these paper dolls were definitely worth re-blogging from HOUSE OF RETRO! And right in tune with my current mid-century madness! I would thu-rillll to wear anything of these outfits, especially the ones I've mentioned in the captions...

Hi, I'm Connie...let's play dress up!

I'll take that quilted pink robe, yellow headscarf, LBD and fur jacket...

Kimono robe, red ensemble with headscarf! Pink dress and short black evening jacket...

Collared grey dress, red dress, pink ensemble and that yummy, rose-festooned party dress...

Purple dress and bag, red coat...

Blue dress! Yellow dress! Red and white dress with hat! Polka dot midriff! Black gown with fur and a tiara...

Black jacket with pink skirt, red shorts with floral top, yellow ensemble with pearls!

Cheesecake, Anyone?

Darlings, you already know what a vintage fanatic I am, but did you know I try to live a vintage lifestyle, as well? Here's your chance to meet 'the real me' behind my bad wig, up close and personal! I have a new blog  I call GALORE LIVING, and I hope you will stop by my for a visit, get to know me better and see what I'm doing with yet another attempt at yet another blog!

Good Heavens.....

...has it really been over a month since I've GAM-O-RAMA'd?? I even missed my annual PRIDE POST, which breaks my heart! Good thing my archives are filled to bursting with a good five years worth of fun! Every blogger needs a break now and then. For now, I'll try to get you up to speed.

As usual, I've been up to no good in my bad wig! First, I skipped out on the last month of my lease so I could immediately move into my dream apartment (dreams can come true!) Seriously, I basically sneaked out on a Sunday, dropped the keys in the rent box, left my mattress behind the dumpster and called it a day...a good day! Trashy, I know, but at least now I'm happy as a clam...if a clam can be happy, that is.

The following weekend I hosted a "Wine Toss" game at a local Arts Auction Gala! Three rings for 10 bucks and if you ring a bottle, you get to keep it. I was drinking a little of that wine, too, and giving everybody shit, not realizing that these were the city bigwigs and I shouldn't have said that to the Mayor...but how was I to know the Mayor was a young lady?? (Well, not exactly YOUNG young! Younger than me...but who isn't these days?) In any case, we sold a couple cases worth of wine and I got a great big round of applause at the fabulous dinner party that followed. In typical fashion, I stood and blew Hollywood kisses...Thank you all! (especially you, Mayor) Mwahhhhh! MWAHHHH!

The next bee I got in my bonnet was inspired by RuPaul's Drag Race and I thought, if Mama Ru can be an ordained minister and throw impromptu weddings, why can't I? So, friends and sinners, I am now, officially, an Ordained Minister! You may now call me REVEREND GAMS GALORE!

In the State of Washington I can marry ya or bury ya...your choice. Remember, I put the 'fun' in 'Funeral'!

My plan is to buy an old bus and put together a traveling show...THE REVEREND GAMS GALORE and HER TRAVELING MENSTRUAL SHOW! (That's a play on words, folks...and a good one!)

Can I get a 'Hallelujah'?

Here's Bianca!

The best part of Drag Race is another season...another reason...for the colorful, campy caricatures created by the amazing Chad Sell!
