All posts for the month August, 2016

Bleh.ย  I’m still sick as a dog (and keeping the Kleenex industry afloat with all the goddamn snotrags I’ve been shoving out…ugh), but I’m gonna try and get some work done. Tomorrow’s blog will have shots from the shoot of Chrissy that impressed me.ย  ๐Ÿ™‚

Today?ย  The now-retired Isobel Wren from my shoot before this one…she’ll prolly be who I edit next.ย  ๐Ÿ™‚

FML. Much better known as “Fuck My Life”. I think I turned a corner with the sickness yesterday. Sucks how reality creeps in when you’re passing a virus…I needed clean clothes, and the cold punished me for washing them. :/ What an AWFUL night last night…but the good news is that if I had a fever, last night was the breaking of it. I’ll prolly be back to normal and working on material tomorrow.

And in other news, cold sweats are for donkey-fuckers.ย  BLEH. :/ย  I’m hot as hell right now, but if I make myself colder, I get TOO cold and the shakes start. Sucks when your body can’t even regulate temperature. :/ And the appetite thing I mentioned a few days ago? FML…my stomach yells at me like I’m starving…I make myself a couple of sandwiches…I get through one of them and I’m full. Don’t even know how much to feed myself right now. :/

Anyway. These shots are from the FetCon Meet & Greet and FetCon End Party. If there’s any story that goes with them, I’ll write it in the captions. That End Party felt SO much like it was just for the “Big Kids” or the “Cool Kids”…people who’ve been in the biz forever…your Ken Marcuses, your Lew Reubenses, your Jim Weathermen….oooh, small story here.

It was held in a ballroom-type setting, with tables for seating and chairs at the wall for overflow if the tables didn’t hold enough. Stupidly thinking it was “come one, come all” seating, I moved to sit at a table…and was immediately asked not to. When I asked why, the person who stopped me told me that they had a big party and they were trying to assure that they all got seated, so if I wouldn’t mind finding somewhere else to sit…ย  Not wanting to start trouble, I left…and just as I did, that was when Jim Weathers came into view letting out a sigh of relief…”Thank you for keeping that no-name from sitting with us!” ๐Ÿ˜› I kid there, and I’m certain Jim wasn’t saying/thinking that…and I even sympathize with him…Jim was up for an award and the Con didn’t even bother reserving seating for him and his. :/ย  Moral of the story: reserve some of the seating for the winning parties so they don’t have to line the wall at their own party. :/

FFS. Still, that gaff aside and my own mixed emotions about it, the party just felt like it was for the bigger people of our ilk and was just…off…for me. I’m hopeful they return to “Guest Of Honor” or somehow manage to integrate all people in fetish into the party and not the ones with the most fame and fortune. :/ย  Speaking of that ball, here’s a shot taken by a friend of mine of how I spent what time I stayed at the party…with Vivian Ireene Pierce in my lap. ๐Ÿ™‚

Me and Viv.

I was SO excited to see her…she was gone so long it felt like she retired, but she was back and in full glory at the con…

Anyway. Tolstoy’s happiness at seeing her aside, how about some other pics from the con?

BWAAAAAAAAAUGH!!!ย  I HATE BEING SIIIIIIICK!!!

OK, got that off my chest. ๐Ÿ˜›

The thing that torques my gears is I’m actually using a bandanna as a snot rag. I’m using one of my GAGS for what it’s SUPPOSED to be used for! AAAAAAAGH!!!

๐Ÿ˜›

So, anyway, let’s talk Chrissy Marie. ๐Ÿ™‚

Chrissy Marie

Chrissy Marie

WOW, this girl impressed me. I mean, I knew going in I was going to have a good shoot…just got that vibe from all our communications, but DAAAAAMN! This girl is going to go FAR in this business…as far as she wants to go and then some! The complete and total package. Beauty. Brains. Skill. Flexibility. Just…wow. She really “wowed” ol’ Tolstoy.ย  ๐Ÿ™‚

We did this one as “Chrissy enters her motel room and gets nabbed by creepy guy who was waiting in the wings for her” basically…in the above shot, she enters the room, then finds “bondagey” stuff laid out on her bed (rope, gag, etc) and she proceeds to get tied up.

Flexibility. OMG. Check this “going for the phone” shot out…

Chrissy Marie

Chrissy Marie

LOOK. AT. ALL. THAT. CURVE! Jesus!ย  If it seems like I’m gushing, I am (lol)…this girl really knocked my socks off and completely floored me. If only she were in Tucson…*sigh*

Anyway. After the attempt at the phone, creepy guy posed her some more…

Chrissy Marie

Chrissy Marie

And then as punishment for the escape attempt, he puts her into a pretty hard hogtie…

Chrissy Marie

Chrissy Marie

This was hard to choose one sample for…but I went with her cute lil’ butt; I’m sure you understand. ๐Ÿ™‚ This pic doesn’t really show it, but she really challenged me with this…she was flexy enough that the wrist ropes could in fact touch the ankle ropes; no joke or lie. My fingers were just too fat to make it happen (lol) and I’ve never had a gal bendy enough to DO this, so I was a bit at a loss, honestly. I could have EASILY done it. The hogtie was bowed completely, meaning she could rock like a hobby horse back and forth in it…just, again, WOW.

Chrissy will be floating through the Tucson area around November or so, so if there’s any interest, get those custom orders in NOW.ย  I would LOVE to work with Chrissy for YOU.ย  ๐Ÿ™‚

Well, tomorrow wraps things up as we take a look at the candid shots I took while at the con. Join me for that, will you?ย  ๐Ÿ™‚

Small reminder…buy Art’s book: https://www.amazon.com/Family-Secrets-Conquistador-Arthur-Burnett/dp/1535202394 (paperback) 14.99

Now…on with the blog.ย  ๐Ÿ™‚

Gawd-dammit…of all the times to eat myself out of apartment and home. I feel miserable, but also have jack I’m interested in eating…off to the store. Side note: It ISN’T wise to eat milk when your body is nothing but a phlegm factory, right? I seem to remember being taken off of cereal and milk when I was completely sick like this. Dammit.ย  ๐Ÿ˜‰

Anyway…Arielle Lane. OMG, what a gal!

Certain angles of her remind me of Janessa…you guys may wind up seeing it yourselves, I dunno. But, anyway…Isobel went on her way, Arielle appeared like a vision.ย  ๐Ÿ™‚ Thankfully, there was a small break in between which gave me an opportunity to change shirts (I don’t wear black at shoots because I’m bad ass, I wear black to hide me sweating like crazy, something that, at this con, I found out I’m not alone in…we ALL sweat like crazy when we photograph) and freshen up before she arrived.ย  And what a TREAT she was to work with!

Arielle Lane

Arielle Lane

(As much as Arielle gets tied up, I have to wonder if she’s Lois’ cousin (Lois Lane…duh) or some such thing. :P) Arielle gets entered into my book as another “Bondage LOVER” as the “thank you’s” were running rampant from her at the shoot.ย  ๐Ÿ™‚ย  Tighten the wrist ropes…”That OK?” “Yes, that’s fine…Thank you for asking!” lather, rinse, repeat for the rest of the shoot.ย  ๐Ÿ™‚ย  Arielle is another gal who loves what she does, enjoys the feeling of ropes on her keeping her captive…a theme of my con this year. Four of the five I worked with this year either loved it or downright needed it in their lives…kinda cool.ย  ๐Ÿ™‚

Arielle Lane

Arielle Lane

This shoot, “creepy guy” followed Arielle back to her hotel room after she was at the beach, had her strip out of her bikini, then tied her in heels and hose.ย  She made a mad dash for the phone…

Arielle Lane

Arielle Lane

…which she failed at, winding her up in a hard hogtie for her troubles. (Side-note, LOVE the “butt pooch” here! One of my favorite things to do with a hogtie.)

Arielle Lane

That last pic is absolute YUM; jus’ sayin’.ย  ๐Ÿ™‚

It was a pleasure and a joy working with Arielle and I’m glad Candle pointed her my way…I’m looking massively forward to the next time we work.ย  ๐Ÿ™‚

Well, we’re winding down the FetCon posts…tomorrow is my experience with Chrissy Marie, and Monday will be about random shots taken at the Con.ย  Join me, willya?ย  ๐Ÿ™‚

PS: Arielle just tweeted this…screenshotted it for you all to see. The girl loves her gig!ย  ๐Ÿ™‚

I rarely do blatant ads for something not my own (my fuckin’ blog, after all…lol), but this is worth it.

Back a little ways ago, Art hired Candle Boxxx and me to help with a project of his…that project has come to fruition and it looks AMAZING. It’s the realization of a dream…and being a bit of a closet-writer myself (“closet-writer” doesn’t mean I write about closets (lol), but that I write a bit but haven’t taken it any further), I was honored to help the dream become reality. Without further ado, here’s where you can go to get “Conquistador: Family Secrets”! It’s a 4 star reviewed book, folks, from our own top-commentor on the blog Art.ย  ๐Ÿ™‚ย  Enjoy!

Goddammit…I’m sick. ๐Ÿ™

I’m going straight past the “denial” stage to the “ugh, I’m sick” one…this hit FAST. Yesterday, my throat was raw, coughing and sneezing…and I finally have a reason why I’m so damned tired. Ugh.

Pluses: I sound like Barry White right now and should be picking up chicks using it (lol), and hopefully the lack-of-appetite part will hit soon enough as I could stand to lose a few pounds…the bad: I’m sleeping away most of my days…it’s disgusting; I feel like a slug. ๐Ÿ™ Anyway, I need to get this puppy done so I can get some fluids in me and get some (not needed, dammit, but I can’t keep my eyes open) sleep. ๐Ÿ™

Third shoot of the five shoot roster…Isobel Wren.

Isobel Wren

Isobel Wren

Oh, by the way, have no fear…she didn’t get tied with her hair up in a bun.ย  ๐Ÿ™‚

(waits patiently for a sneeze…***AH-CHOOO!!*** K, back to typing)ย  Isobel is officially retired from shooting. I don’t remember if I’m at liberty to say just what the day career is, but she’s giving up the bondage and modeling (reluctantly…I really had a sense that she wanted to continue) for it. It just saddens me that the vanilla world is so repressed that a gal can’t have both worlds…moving on before I start ranting. ๐Ÿ˜›

When she arrived for the shoot, Isobel was in full Marvel gear…and by that I don’t mean a costume, but clothing with Marvel attributes. Her shawl had an Avengers logo emblazoned on the back, and her shirt had a SHIELD logo on it…that when in the dark glowed with the HYDRA one. Yes, our girl is a comic book nerd, which was fine for me and my custom guy who are also nerds as well; made for nirvana.ย  ๐Ÿ™‚ But, we did some talking and then got to work…as the story went, first, we established her in street clothes coming back to her hotel room (pic above) and after being accosted by her eventual abductor (me again…I was an asshole to these girls, huh? :P) I brought her into the room, had her strip and put on some special clothes and began posing her…

Isobel Wren

Isobel Wren

After which she made a mad dash for the phone. Failing that, her abductor placed her on a footstool, then on the floor to pose her. She made a dash for the door…

Isobel Wren

Isobel Wren

(well, as “dashy” as her ropes would allow…lol) and got busted again, only to have her creepy captor enjoy posing her at the door for his pervy viewing pleasure.

Isobel Wren

Isobel Wren

This shoot had a tinge of sadness to it as I knew this was the last time I’d ever have the opportunity to slip ropes on this lovely lass. It’s a damned shame as Isobel is another in the “I LOVE this shit!” class (not to the degree of Samantha, meaning actually NEEDING a binding, just loving it) and I hate to see someone in this world with the ability that Isobel has, go. I miss her already…but she is just a text message away; gonna have to keep in touch with her.ย  ๐Ÿ™‚

Tomorrow, Arielle Lane. Join me for that.ย  ๐Ÿ™‚

So, here was my “something I learned today” from FetCon (definition provided by Wikipedia):

Tiramisu (from Italian, spelled tiramisรน [tiramiหˆsu], meaning “pick me up”, “cheer me up”, “wake me up” [1] or “lift me up”) is a popular coffee-flavoured Italian dessert. It is made of ladyโ€™s fingers (Italian: Savoiardi, [savoหˆjardi]) dipped in coffee, layered with a whipped mixture of eggs, sugar, and mascarpone cheese, flavoured with cocoa. The recipe has been adapted into many varieties of cakes and other desserts.[2] Its origins are often disputed among Italian regions such as Veneto, Friuli Venezia Giulia, Piedmont, and others.

Here’s the sick part of it…I’m Sicilian and I never knew this. ๐Ÿ˜›

When I started my shoot with Terra Mizu, I asked her the significance behind the modelling name she chose, and she quickly responded that it was a dessert. Well, fuck me runnin’, I never knew that! I’ll have to hit an Italian restaurant soon just to try it…sounds yummy!

Terra Mizu

Terra Mizu

Anyway, the shoot with Terra was complete fun! The set-up was that Terra was headed out all dolled up and calling her significant other to make the arrangements, when a nasty type person (me, I suppose…lol) sets upon her and ties her up, later removing her clothing for better pervy viewing of the lovely lass. NICE stuff…what a fun time!

Terra Mizu

Terra Mizu

The shoot went smooth as butter. ๐Ÿ™‚ย  That’s the best part about hiring a professional…they know their angles and how to present themselves to get you the best material possible…Terra is no exception to this rule; she did OUTSTANDING! You get to a point where you want to change the angle…and just when you’re gonna ask her to move a certain way, she just does it herself…gotta LOVE that synergy!

Terra Mizu

Terra Mizu

Well, after the shoot was finished, we were done shooting for the day (THE DAY…I still have three more shoots to tell you all about!), and my custom guy and I floated down to convention floor for the first time. I think…THINK…it was here that I caught up to comic book artist extraordinaire George Perez and got him to sigh a couple of things for me…a Vampirella trading card (drawn from an Ashley Renee pose, he informed me) and my copy of Astonishing Tales #25 featuring character Deathlok…and George’s very first published comic book artwork!ย  ๐Ÿ™‚ย  A two-page back-up feature, but still great stuff!

Terra Mizu

Terra Mizu

We floated around the tables for a bit and nothing really exciting happened…wish I could say I talked with models and set up shoots, but nope…just floated around tables and looked at stuff I either didn’t need or want. :/ Kinda sad, really. If you’re reading this, FetCon staff…bring back the Guests Of Honor! ๐Ÿ™‚

That was the first day in a nutshell…tomorrow, I’ll yak about Day 2 and start off with Isobel Wren. Join me then.ย  ๐Ÿ™‚

Tolstoy

Once again, with LIVE Tolstoy!ย  ๐Ÿ™‚

WOW…getting back to the home drive has been rough.ย  My body has been catching up on sleep lately…no more catnapping my way through the night like I usually do. It’s been a pleasant change.ย  ๐Ÿ™‚

Sooooo…FetCon 2016.ย  ๐Ÿ™‚ย  What an experience…and it started right at check in at the hotel this year. One of the many changes they made was much tighter security at the Con. No, we weren’t expecting ISIS (lol), but I get the feeling this was an attempt to cut down on the poaching models that occasionally appear. “Poaching Models”? Well, that’s what I’ve come to call local Florida gals who would go to the hotel and work with the incoming photographers without being registered for the con.ย  I guess somebody complained.ย  :/ย  This year, FetCon literally took over the Hyatt…nobody but fetish folks were able to get in or out of the hotel. Must’ve sucked for them business-wise…but I bet all the cash we spent at the convention made up for it. ๐Ÿ™‚ย  It WAS nice having a vanilla-free experience for the con, I must say…I hope this continues.ย  ๐Ÿ™‚ Aaaaaanyway, I met my custom guy at the registration line (he had arrived a few hours ahead of me and met me while I registered), but after saying hello, he went a few paces behind me and stayed there. Curious why we weren’t chatting, I turned around to see him chatting up Samantha Hayes who was also in line. VERY fortuitous, as we missed out on working with her last year and he really wanted to work with her.ย  I got registered, we waited for her to get registered, we signed her up to fill a spot in our appointment book that had recently been voided…BAM! First shoot of the con achieved.ย  ๐Ÿ™‚

Samantha Hayes

Samantha Hayes

What a JOY to work with this young lady. At just twenty precious years old, prolly the second youngest gal I’ve worked with (Magenta was 19 when I found her) and one of the most enthusiastic gals ever.ย  When I snugly roped her wrists off, I heard a joyous sigh and a really big, “Thank you!” came from her. First time a gal ever thanked me for roping her up.ย  ๐Ÿ™‚ Samantha is one of those wonderful gals who not only loves her job but to some extent needs it…she said that she needs a good “professional” binding (meaning, not just fuzzy cuffs to the edge of the bed and calling it good…a right and proper roping up) to level her off…she REALLY enjoys the feelings of captivity and the pressing of rope against skin. This gal LOVES her job…the “Oooooh, I’m getting tied up and getting PAID for it too? Sign me UP!!” type that makes my work all the more enjoyable.ย  ๐Ÿ™‚

The set we did was “secretary” secretary at work at her desk gets surprised and bound up, then her blouse is cut away (that blouse died for a good cause…viva la blouse!!!ย  :P) then finds herself posed by her captor for his pervy looking-at-her pleasure.ย  NICE stuff; I really enjoyed working with her!

Samantha Hayes

Samantha Hayes

We then worked with Terra Mizu (tomorrow’s blog) and went down to the convention for a bit.ย  I’ll elaborate more on that tomorrow, but leave you with this thought…I had no idea she’d named herself after a dessert. I’m so naive. ๐Ÿ˜›

I’m home.ย  And happy to BE home.ย  Lord, what travels…I forgot how much I hate air pockets and my stomach dropping when my flight hits one…lol. Nothing serious…just the feeling of sinking stomach; I’m sure you’ve all been there. ๐Ÿ˜›

I haven’t edited anything but 5 sample pics from the con…I’ll inter space thoseย  out while I blab, and over the next week or so, I’ll run things down for you all on the experience.ย  ๐Ÿ™‚

This was an…odd…con. Probably my favorite, but an odd one. The reason being, they went in a different direction this year…no “Guests Of Honor”. Guests of Honor, models, traditionally, would get booth space and be accessible from said booth…it was a win for fans, but a bit of a loss for producers who wanted to work with them as they were stuck at booths all con. I always understood, tho…this is as much a FAN event as an industry one. Not this time, however…the fans definitely took a hit this con.

Chrissy Marie

Chrissy Marie

Sure…models like drop-dead GORGEOUS Chrissy Marie (above) were available for chatting up and whatnot…but staple models? Christina Carter, for example, was everywhere, but Jewell Marceau? I didn’t see hide nor hair of her until the closing ceremonies, and I don’t think I’m alone in that. It was thought that she was working sun up until sun down. :/ In my mind, this has always been an event for fans AND industry and things took a definite back-turn this con. One VERY passionate fan I was hanging with was pretty po’ed about it, really…and as a “fan producer” myself, I agree. Yes, the models all need to work…but if you ask me, there should be a stipulation in place where they have to be at least SOMEwhat available to fans.ย  Eh, that’s just me, tho.

Arielle Lane

Arielle Lane

The “Guest Of Honor” system was replaced by an “Awards” ceremony. Normally, I’m on board for this…but it felt so…stuffy…to me. Like only the “bigs of the bigs” need apply, and no, don’t anyone DARE tell me I apply.ย  I have a LOT of seasoning to go through before I become a Lew Reubens, Ken Marcus, or Jim Weathers. :/ This is all a different blog about Sunday night…but for me? This “awards” thing blew chunks; couldn’t even stay to see if my faves (few and far between as I knew almost no one nominated) won. :/

Terra Mizu

Terra Mizu

I don’t know why, but the con floor even felt a bit more sparse than usual…even the guy who sells great ball gags wasn’t even there. The funny part was they had more space available since it wasn’t being taken up by Guests Of Honor (after this, referred to as “GOH’s”). Eh, I’m a picky sot and I don’t really NEED all that much…I have inexpensive “jute” rope to use if I so desire, a good source for my usual clothesline, all the ball gags I really need…what I needed was some GOH videos, and those weren’t there…

Ah, well. At least Candle hung out at the Toreva booth (as a salesperson, I believe), so I was able to chat her up whenever I wanted. ๐Ÿ˜›

Isobel Wren

Isobel Wren

I suppose I sound like I hated the con and that’s far from the truth. This was a HOT con for me, possibly my fave of all the ones I’ve been to. I feel I did some of the best work I’ve done in some time and I’m damn proud OF it.ย  ๐Ÿ™‚ย  The gals I worked with were truly top-shelf and amazing all…it was a BLAST! It just would have been better with GOH’s and a different end party; I really missed Reverend B. Dangerous‘ show at the end. Nobody can endure firecrackers down his pants, glass being eaten, and cinder blocks chained to moobs (“man boobs”…lol) like he can. And yes, all that happens…Google his name and watch a YouTube video or two…*if you dare!* ๐Ÿ˜›
