Extreme Makeover by Carina Granlund (Petsmo, Finland)

Carina - 3.0.2014 - 1

Mail-art by IUOMA member Carina Granlund (Petsmo, Finland)

March 9, 2014 - Carina Granlund has made this impressive entry in the MinXus-Lynxus Who Has The Best Hair Contest. The concept seems to be a hair makeover in preparation for the competition. First, a booklet in a plastic bag was sealed with black electrical tape:

Carina - 3.9.2014 - 2

Carina - 3.9.2014 - 3

Imagine shearing her hair when so many other contestants entered wigs!

Carina - 3.9.2014 - 4

Carina - 3.9.2014 - 5

And the result is Groot Suster? (Alas, we are not all South African beauties; and MinXus-Lynxus favors redheads regardless.) Then something very interesting was enclosed in this envelope:

Carina - 3.9.2014 - 6

Carina - 3.9.2014 - 7

Carina - 3.9.2014 - 8

Then a great postcard:

Carina - 3.9.2014 - 9

Carina - 3.9.2014 - 10

And here is the envelope in which all was enclosed:

Carina - 3.9.2014 - 11

Carina - 3.9.2014 - 12

I can't thank you enough for this wonderful entry, Carina!

Alicia, we could make a nice wig for Ray.

Somewhere at IUOMA before there was a PiPi Longstocking discussion. Does Carina's hair remind you of PiPi Longstocking?

Outstanding. Perfect form. Degree of difficulty, take off, flight. 10!

Carina, I knew you would send something great as always but I didn't expect this. This is  truly becoming the Greatest Show on Earth. Marie is visiting uncharted regions in search of the ultimate wave & sheep shearing. We can expect her commentary to resume at M-L the week after next. So that's how much time remains.

Rebecca - remains cool and collected as the pressure mounts.

Thanks to Ruud for featuring this blog!
