The Genesis of Kandi! Part 3

In the original “Genesis of Kandi“, we discussed my amazing photo shoot with the incomparable Amanda Richards. Amanda, I understand you are in poor health and you will probably never see this, but you are going straight to Heaven. You meant so much to me, all these years later, from one 6-7 hour session. God Bless You!

So I mentioned that I was four completely different girls that day. Girl one, as you can imagine, was a bride. Here are a few looks back at the “other” Kandis!

Look up the word “Joy” in the dictionary and this is what you will see.

Please remember, these pictures were taken in 2015, not more than three months after those hideous Detroit pictures, the birth day of who I am.

Okay, now you’ve seen girls one and two. Here is girl three!

Then I got goofy! Heisman time!

More to finish the day……

And this is how Amanda sent me out the door, to go to a GNO in the Philly area, I knew not a single soul.

Oh, to be young and pretty like that again……

  1. I love these!

    If someone had told you on that day what you would achieve by today, would you have believed them?

  2. Kandi,
    To me it shows what a difference hair/wigs can make , if only I could grow my own hair !

    Every 4-6 weeks I have to bite the bullet and make an appointment to have my ( own ) hair cut . The lady is a sweet Lithuanian she’s perfectly OK with me entering her salon as Teresa , I then pop off my wig and place it on it’s stand while does the trim . At the end I always apologize because her work is going to be covered up but them give her a big smile and say , ” That’s better ” once the wig has gone back on . Last time I mentioned that I will need a new wig again soon and did she think I should go a little greyer at my age . She then said but I don’t know how old you are , and then guessed at 50-55 , so I gestured higher with my hands but eventually I had to tell her I would be 72 this year . With that she flopped in her chair saying , ” No way !! ”

    Yep wigs do a great job !

  3. KANDI…MY LADY

    YES A DIFFERENT WIG CAN MAKE FOR A DIFFERENT LOOK, MOOD, PERSONALITY AND SENSE OF JOY>

    ALTHOUGH I OFTEN COME BACK TO MY OLD TIME//ALL TIME FAVORITE.

    LOVE MARIE ANNE

  5. Amazing and beautiful, that is you my dear and yes it is much fun to have a different look and all of yours are great, especially that second set
    I’m not sure I would have believed that was you unless you said so, gorgeous is a word that comes to mind.
    Bless you

    1. Oh eight years ago, when I got these pics I showed my wife and we agreed we could hang these on the wall and no one would know it was me. Thanks Rach!!
