Baldom by dragongirlhellfire Baldom by dragongirlhellfire
I got my head shaved this morning! So I drew all of my bald characters (that I can remember and that I've finished designing).

I have a thing for baldness I guess??

Dee is definitely the happiest character here, though.
I mean Em's mum has cancer (she knows she's dying at this point so she's like 'SCREW IT I'M GONNA SMOKE' but then she feels too bad about everything and stops again anyway), the couple in the corner are in a POW camp, and that blue lady is extremely bitter about stuff.

But I have a bald head and I am super happy about it!
I've been wanting to do this for YEARS.
The wind feels so different on my head. Oh my god. :happybounce:

You know what's weird though? How many people this haircut seems to involve BESIDES MYSELF.
My work was not happy about it (which is why I didn't shave my head last year like I was planning to, but I have a month off now so carpe diem), my sister has been campaigning ardently for me to not shave my head (or at least do it after her birthday), my brother was using 'Friends' episodes as evidence to show me that nobody will like me if I shave my head and I won't get a boyfriend. One of my friends has been very unhappy everytime I mention this. The lady at the hairdresser was like "what, really, why the hell would you want to do that" and seemed super doubtful as she shaved my head. (She kept stopping and asking "Are you ok?" as if I was going to burst into tears. I know people do that, but I was sitting there grinning!)
PEOPLE, WHAT IS YOUR PROBLEM, IT'S MY HEAD, AND IT'S JUST HAIR, IT WASN'T THAT GREAT, AND IT'S GOING TO GROW BACK
NOT THAT BIG A DEAL
honestly

I get why people whose hair just falls out are unhappy, I wouldn't want that. I like the look, but I have the freedom to choose it.

YOU SHAVED YOUR HEAD.

I HAVE BEEN WANTING TO DO THAT FOR AGES.


It is almost pathetic how much people care about hair. Especially other people's hair! It's pretty much the most un-permanent body mod you could do. Why does everyone not experiment ridiculously with it!?! :D

Do it! It's the greatest!
I KNOW!?!?!?!?! What's it to you, foo!

Maybe you should cut your own hair
coz that can be so funny
It doesn't cost any money and it always grows back
hair grows even after you're dead

I think one day I would like to shave my head, though I don't think my bf will like it! XD Either that or cut it really short.
Did you shave yours just 'cause, or for any particular reason?

Also, I have too many bald characters too, most not on dA >< My poor Finny... he used to have a lot of hair. XD and then I got lazy and made excuses.

Haha, yeah, the girl I was dating a few months ago was very clear in saying she wouldn't be attracted to me nearly as much without my hair :lol:

Just cos, really. I just like the look and wanted to try it out, really :shrug: And it's great!

Hehe :XD:

I think it'd creep my boyfriend out <<; XD

XD if I shave my head, same reason! That, and I have horrible hair. |D (Well, not horrible hair. Just hair that gets greasy quickly, which, by itself, isn't a problem, but coupled with the fact that I have a very sensitive, dry scalp...)

I think it's great that you shaved your head since that's obviously what you wanted. :)
Besides this though, I can't keep from feeling intensely curious about why you want to be bald.
So why?

Frankly, though, I'm just as curious as to why people were so against it.

Look, I'm not really sure! :shrug: I like the look, and I wanted to try it out; it's an idea that's been growing for a few years. I just wanted to do it. (And it's pretty great! :D )

Yeah, I think it's one of those things that has a kind of image associated with it, I don't know? Women aren't usually bald.
My sister is unhappy because she's pretty straight in some ways and doesn't really like too much deviation from the norm, especially when it's associated with her. Also she's kind of critical of me in general.
My work is unhappy because of the image thing, I guess. A lot of their customers are fairly old people.
