Ayria Style: Meet “Head”

Head

Meet "Head"

This is my giant travelling make up case I’ve named “Head” only it’s not pronounced “head”, you have to say it like Mike Myers’ Scottish Father in the movie “So I Married An Axe Murderer” and pronounce it “Heed!” and usually yell it out! This case contains everything that makes up my head for an Ayria show such as my make up, and hair accessories. Head has had all kinds of  touring adventures. He’s been to Montreal for the Kinetik Festival, he’s driven across Canada, he’s seen the entire U.S.A., been on a tour bus with VNV Nation, and he always gets to hang out backstage. He couldn’t come to Europe last fall unfortunately, I think I’d need to get him a passport or something ;) We had on ongoing joke that I had an actual head inside the case, that already had full hair and makeup that I simply could screw on and replace with my own head for the shows. Creepy, but  funny.

I bought this case for myself last year for my birthday and I know it’s a bit excessive, since there are a lot of things in there I don’t even end up using, but it can hold absolutely everything I need on tour, and it’s great for storage of everything here at home. When I can bring head on the road, I do. It really just depends on how we are travelling and for how long we’ll be away. This is an item you’d only get to see  backstage, so here are some photos of Head in all his colourful, glittering glory:

And finally, here’s Head and I in Salt Lake City, UT.  I’m obviously looking for Head, who’s hiding near the back.

The weird thing is, I also have a teddy bear named “head” (pronounced the same way) who lives on my bed and has a head too big for his body to ever be able to sit up right! I love plushies with disproportionately large noggins. Here’s my other Head who stays at home while I tour:

Anyways, hope you enjoyed this silliness!  I thought I’d ease into some make up stuff by first introducing you to make up case Head, the keeper all things colourful needed for a big sparkling head.

Much love ♥

  1. Wow, that is one big make up case, i bet you could almost fit into it yourself. I think it’s bigger than my suitcase.

    I reckon head the teddy should get to come on tour as well.

    Thanks for sharing weird and wonderful things, it’s very uplifting.

    Cheers

    That’s so silly! I love it! nice little glimpse of backstage with Ayria. I bet “Heed!” has a whole bunch of little road stories and secrets! Next you need to get a chain and handcuffs for it so you can be all super serious and lug it around sayng sorry top secret!

    Cute little big bear there :) and hurray for pink!

  3. I love it! It looks so serious, but has such wonderful fun colours inside! The only concern I have, and this is a serious one (affects stern look) is there are no stickers on “head”! ZOMG, it’s just begging for some Jennifer Parkin special stickers!

    I love the backstage shots, I always wonder what that’s like, heh. Cute. And “Head” the stuffie is adorable! Thanks for posting, Ms. Parkin!

  4. Jenn,
    Your bear isn’t covered with pink, sparkly things? Haha, that’s surprising. :) The photo of the inside of “Head” was cute, with all the rhinestones sparkling and making it all the more majestic to see inside the case.

    I have a random question, since you’re discussing stuff brought on tours; is there any music that you bring that’s a must have??

  5. Good to meet you “head”. I think you are a very lucky box. I am curious… what do you think about traveling with Ayria? What is your favorite memory?

    LOL! XD

    Thanks for the peek into more of what goes in to Ayria! I liked the Arms blog too! Pretty soon, we are gonna have Ayria Voltron! :p

    Any spoiler on this weeks song?? Pwease???

  6. I feel privileged to meet “Head”. I like it when people give their belongings names. Just means (as expensive or excessive as they are) you cherish them so much :) That is a giant box. You should get him a passport so he can go with you next time you leave the country :D That plush is adorable! :3 I collect all the Dr. Seuss ones for Kohls for my little girl :) Thanks for sharing!

  7. I’m still learning from you, while I’m making my way to the top as well. I definitely enjoy reading everything that is posted on your site.Keep the stories coming. I loved it!
