Ah…time for some judicious blogging. 🙂 I’m two posts behind…gonna fix that now. Firstly, let’s talk about the second half of my 6 hour shoot with Kimberly Marvel. The first half was just for myself, and done for TucsonTied…a normal shoot; this half was done for a custom client, to his specs. I find it kinda ironic that of the two, I prefer my work for my custom guy than to my own work this time out…lmao! Not to say that my own stuff was bad or anything…Kimberly and I shot a TON of awesome; but the stuff we shot for my custom client was just a level above…maybe the best stuff Kimberly and I have lensed together!
This one was shoot #9 for her and me…which means that when she and I get the opportunity to do so again, it’ll be the 10th, and worthy of celebrating the “anniversary”. What IS the proper thing to buy a bondage model for the tenth anniversary…cotton clothesline??? 😉 Ah, I’ll think of something…anyways, back on track. After doing some “before the bondage” shots, Kim and I got down to cases. I should add that the mega-awesome JRMarvel (Kim’s hubby) was present in the room as well (go and read his blog… http://jrmarvelblogger.blogspot.com/?zx=67e8e6091001c9b he has a pic from the shoot at the top of the blog and as I write this, his latest entry is about his thoughts about the shoot…color me blushing, the man was very kind about yours truly! 🙂 ) . First, I started off with a chair tie…
We did a couple of quick variations of this tie…one with her ankles free of the chair legs and one tied to them…both were awesome! Kim is one HELL of an actress…the client had asked for her to “cry” while tied, and brother did she do so. It was actually kinda funny, and apparantly I wasn’t the only one to pick up on it; she went about her bit for the video…and as I sat there taping, I honestly thought I had an emotionally distraught woman on my hands suddenly; my instincts were telling me to shut off the camera and check on her…but my brain knew she was just acting. It was a tough call to stay on my butt, let me tell you! JRMarvel was feeling the same, apparantly…I read that from his blog, but he was a real wonderful trooper and didn’t jump in to check her himself, tho the urge was there. To quote from his blog:
Ms. Marvel writhed and squirmed against her ropes, and even got herself to tear up and freak out so convincingly that both Tony and I damn near ran over in the middle of the shoot to make sure she was ok. She really is quite good at this stuff.
Totally agreed, buddy…totally agreed! Kimberly is awesome at her job…which makes me all the sadder that I’m losing her to retirement soon. 🙁 Ah, she’ll come by if requested for a custom…but for the most part, she’s retiring as of FetCon ’11 as a bondage model. Lola Lynn retired this year as well…going to miss them both a great deal! But…as I am normal to do, I digress…lol.
We next went to a hogtie…
She struggled beautifully, and I got some great shots for my guy and for TucsonTied. I am really gonna miss that girl…:( The next part was kinda out there…have only done it once before, but it worked out amazingly. With JRMarvel’s assistance (and he was 17,000 kinds of AWESOME at this, let me tell you…he was a great asset to this shoot and I’d have him back over anytime!), we stood Kimberly up and tied her under a small hook in the wall…then I CAREFULLY (and I can’t stress that enough) put a rope off of the crotchrope and tied it to the ceiling. Here’s the result…
Yup…she’s not going anywhere anytime soon. 😉 Another client request…and Kimberly was mega happy to do so. 🙂
Now, as to the rest of the night, after the shoot…Lord, was that special. In doing this shoot, I not only got to hang out with Kimberly Marvel, the model/actress, but with Kimberly and JRMarvel, the married couple…and that was awesome, and amazingly special. After the shooting/paperwork/payment section of the shoot was done, we sat down like three friends (even tho JRMarvel and I had just met…he was that accepting of me and that felt wonderful) and just talked about their recent wedding. We peered thru the wedding album…yes, I do believe Tolstoy cried a bit, if you wanna know…lol. It was a LOVELY wedding and ceremony…and they were even nice enough to burn me a copy of the ceremony they’d taped (with JRMarvel even downloading me some software that was awesome and something I was looking for to help me archive my product onto DVD anyway…THANK YOU, bro, for that!)…all in all, it was one special evening.
We even gave our sponsor a special treat…a phone call. I love working for this guy; he’s in his 70’s and loves bondage…he’s a “Tolstoy” in the spoken word the way I am with the written one, so we’re good friends now. I hear his ringtone pop up on my phone, I know I’m gonna get talked to for at least an hour of so…lol. Well, we gave my client a call to tell him about the shoot and just jaw for a bit…which became the problem…he was enjoying talking with kim so much that I had a hard time pulling him away from the convo so Kim and JRMarvel could get back on the road to their next shoot…lmao! She enjoyed yakking with him…he’s a character! 😉
My fave Kimberly Marvel shoot…one awesome time was had. 🙂
