Oooh, I love this! Hah, I'm considering coloring my hair "Dana Scully" red tomorrow, so this is perfect timing. :-)

Thank you! :) I think it was probably thanks to Scully that I was a born again redhead from 12 to 18. If you decide to go ahead with it, happy hair dyeing! I always think it's fun to color my hair. Seems like spoiling yourself. :)

As good a reason as any to be a redhead! I used to color my hair for fun--a nice little pick-me-up that was cheap for the price of a box of Clairol. For the last few years, I've been coloring to hide the gray, but that's getting harder and harder to do these days. The color won't stick more than a couple of weeks, no matter what kind of color preserving products I use. Red is one of the worst for fading, so I stick with the darker shades right now.

But hey, I'm on vacation so WTH! We're going for red! :D

You know, I don't have grays yet but I have the same problem. I've been bleaching it and dyeing it for so long, the dye just doesn't react in predictable ways lately. I'm thinking I'll go purple myself (I have a bunch of dye in a basket).

Yes, go for it! Red is a fantastic hair color. Happy vacay, by the way. :)

This is so awesome! I think the images you picked really fit the mood, and the whole thing looks great. Love the caption at the top especially.

Thanks! I've never done anything noir-ish before so I'm glad it worked for you. :)

So much love for this. I attempted to make the 50s B movie poster requested and couldn't find a way to make it with Photoshop and this one looks so. good. Perfect fonts, especially the "They can now trust no one!" I love this. Thank you.

And I was gonna say, "I wish this would exist" but it does, of course, a lot of their episodes are quite noir, some in a cinematographic way as well, and all in all the world is very sci-fi noir.

Thank you so much. I always struggle with font choice. :)
And I totally know what you mean about wishing it existed -- I love XF canon, of course, and we had some of that in the series, but sometimes I want to read a noir AU replete with fedoras, slinky satin dresses, and dead ends.

This looks great! The font, the photo, the files. Wonderful choices, all.
