Shameless Eldritch hair question...

THE place for your Sisters-related comments, questions and snippets of Sisters information. For those who do not know, The Sisters of Mercy are a rock'n'roll band. And a pop band. And an industrial groove machine. Or so they say. They make records. Lots of records, apparently. But not in your galaxy. They play concerts. Lots of concerts, actually. But you still cannot see them. So what's it all about, Alfie? This is one of the few tightly-moderated forums on Heartland, so please keep on-topic. All off-topic posts will either be moved or deleted. Chairman Bux is the editor and the editor's decision is final. Danke.

I used to use a combination of hair-mousse and wet-look gel.

i'd go for years of accumulated cheap hair dye, a proliferation of chemicals in the blood stream, and a bit of wet look gel...

Heh heh.
That reminds me of this time my buddy stood up his hair with egg whites.
It worked great... until he went outside in the Phoenix sun.
After a short while, he had gooey, white chunks dripping off his head.
...and some of us wandered off entirely on purpose.

I'm reminded of a tale I heard:

Some guy I used to know wanted to do the Nephilim "covered in dust" look. As we all know, the Neph boys used to use flour for that. So our hero tries to find some flour in his mum's kitchen. The closest he can find is a packet of cake-mix. "Well, close enough" he thinks.

...until it started raining on his way to the club, and he walks in covered in a thin patina of dough.

If you don't like the Sisters anymore, have you, um, considered going away and visiting sites of bands that you, y'know, do still like? :innocent:

As to the "Dominion" look - just lots of wet-look gel should do it...

Normally I would, but I just don't give a f**k anymore. The south russian ovcharka in me is still wagging its tail after the recent gigs, and just can't be bothered with anything that doesn't deserve its attention. :D
