I had first known I was in consideration for the World Cup wives feature when they told me that it would be with body paint. I was a little unsure, but I looked at some of the past body paint features in SI and other work by Joanne Gair. Her work was really amazing so I decided to do it.
I think it actually took around 15 hours (just the painting).
Normally I am chasing around a one-year-old and doing a million things, so it was actually kind of nice to have nothing to do but sit still. We also listened to a lot of music and just chatted so it didn't seem boring.
You don't feel naked, because you look in the mirror and it looks like you are wearing a swimsuit. The detailing is amazing.
