This community is for participants in the Old Hollywood-themed zine project of red_hair. Here you will find information pertaining to the project, including periodic updates, schedules and deadlines.
Participants may also post their project-related questions, comments or suggestions. Makeup and hair tips, or places to find vintage clothing and accessories, are also welcome.
Please do not post the photos you intend to submit for the zine, as we would like those to be a surprise!

Maintained by red_hair and frostie. Contact us at the AIM screen names redheads say no or Lydia Languish, or by the e-mail address above.

Project guidelines:
1) Stars must be from the years 1910-mid 1940s. It is preferred that each participant pose as only one star; however, participants may pose as two stars, but no more than that. More than one person can pose as a particular star; this is not on a first-come, first-served basis. Both ladies and gentlemen are invited to participate and may pose as a star of either gender.
2) Photos must be submitted in digital format. If you do not have a scanner or digital camera the photo may be mailed to Penny (red_hair) and will be returned upon completion of the project.
3) Photos must be black and white. The only exception: photos submitted via snail-mail may be taken with color film since black and white is so expensive. We'll take care of the color ourselves.
4) Please include one or two paragraphs explaining why you chose your particular star. Nothing fancy, but we prefer it to be something reverent and relevant.
5) Word of mouth is one of the best ways to share new ideas. Please tell any interested friends about this project, and direct them to this community.

Additional, themed fan photo projects are forthcoming, so please stay tuned, and as always, thank you for your interest and participation.
