The unsuspecting woman with a mo for today, turns out to be me! A few of my Social MoSista teammates had planned a photo shoot to create a Movember calendar. I planned to go to the shoot at Fuss Hair Studio to meet some of my teammates who I have only met online (not offline) and take some behind-the-scenes shoots of the girls getting their hair and makeup done.
Halfway through the day, one of the original models canceled and I was asked to jump on in. Who can turn down the idea of professional makeup, photographer, and a stylist picking out your clothes?
More importantly, I spent the day with aMOzing women Caron Court, Casie Stewart, Raymi Lauren White, Amber Mac, Jennifer Lee Dawson, Lauren O’Nizzle, Shannon Hunter, Alison Michelle, Jennifer Lui, Lisa Simone Richards. They inspire!
12 women modelled for the shoot to make a moustache calendar that will be sold with proceeds going to Movember. These influential women are spreading awareness about men’s health in their networks. My team created a space to actively participate in Movember. I felt the power of community and the benefits of being part of a Mo Sista team. So a big thank you to my team! If you are not part of a team, think about joining one as if may just give you the MOmentum you are looking for.
The shoot was pin-up styled. I enjoyed thinking about “pin-up” girls with “pin-on” moustaches. Traditional femininity mixed with masculine ‘staches. A little irony and lots of fun.
