Once again, with LIVE Tolstoy! 🙂
WOW…getting back to the home drive has been rough. 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. 🙂
Sooooo…FetCon 2016. 🙂 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. I guess somebody complained. :/ 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. 🙂 It WAS nice having a vanilla-free experience for the con, I must say…I hope this continues. 🙂 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. 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. 🙂
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. 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. 🙂 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. 🙂
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!!! :P) then finds herself posed by her captor for his pervy looking-at-her pleasure. NICE stuff; I really enjoyed working with her!
We then worked with Terra Mizu (tomorrow’s blog) and went down to the convention for a bit. 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. 😛
