I tend to get a touch more personal when I write at FetLife…that site is supposedly for the “fetish” side of your life, hence the site name “FetLife”, so I do my more personal blogging there. Here, I’ll blog the personal stuff too, but more with a bend towards the shoots and shooting. This one fits in here, I think. From my FetLife…
Nope, this ISN’T a “Christmas-time and the mall’s are Hell” rant…I’m saving that one for next month. 🙂 Actually, the malls around here are kinda quiet.
Here’s the thing…I try to keep a small “stock” of modeling clothes on hand for the gals that I work with…looks that I know will work well in the pics, really. Lately, I’ve been trying to build that stock up and buying a frock here and there. Also, to replace the ones the models manage to “pout” out of me…lol. 😉
I never realized doing this shopping shyte was so frikkin’ HARD at times! Got a shoot in about a week with the lovely Sasha Fae, and I seem to be running into two looks…”Nice, but kinda looks like I’m hanging curtains on her” or “Can I interest you in a copy of the Watchtower?”
“Nice, but kinda looks like I’m hanging curtains on her”: I can sum this one up in one word: RUFFLES…and not the kind you have on potato chips, either…lol. What is the thing about ruffles these days? I see stuff that’s cute, but has so many waves and ruffles of fabric on the front of them I get dizzy lookin’ at the things! Perfectly good dresses ruined by designers trying to be arty and shit, I guess. 🙁 (EDIT: Just recently, I went back over my search and picked up a “ruffles” dress…it seemed to be more appropriate than I thought and when stretched out, will make for some NICE effects…film when CJ Molina and I shoot on the 12th. 🙂 )
“Can I interest you in a copy of the Watchtower?” Let’s be honest. I’m trying to find a clingy and tight dress that flatters a gal’s curves. In “perv-terms”…skin tight and sexy as hell. I seem to keep finding stuff women wear to CONFESSIONAL, for pity’s sake…and that’s fine for the gals who’re gonna need that, but where’s this over-sexualization of clothing that I’ve heard so much about when I need it??? GAH!!!
And, of course, there’s the “Wow, that’s nice, how much is it? $150?! (puts back gently, walks away in silence) OW, I burned my hand even TOUCHING that!!” category…but it’s fairly self-explanatory. 🙂
Frustrations over. 🙂 Might just have to take my “sensei’s” route and work with my models nekkid. Tho, after a shoot or three, they might protest and tell me to at least put some pants on. 😉
