*glamour*fetish*artistic*erotic*exotic*fun*

Even though I am a goofball, I do have a good time hamming it up for a camera... I just love getting all dolled up in different styles and striking poses. So girly, I know... but it's so damned fun! 

 

And, lucky me- a friend, Liz, just happens to be a fantastic photographer/makeup artist, so I got to model for her whenever we had the chance to hang together. We both had a great time creating these images (the next 4 rows of pics are her work)...

       

She also had such a knack for making me look wildly different in every pic with her bag of magic tricks *grin* I mean, check out the pics above- all me, all different!

It was also always fun because I got to play with things like swords and guns and stuff in our shoots, yipeee... *wink*

        

These sword-y, medieval-y pics were taken atop the gigantic frozen waterfalls at Idaho Falls (skeeeery!) The crazy, gun-wielding pics were taken in a deserted hallway... yes, the gun is real, and yes, we made very sure said gun was not loaded...

         

Another fun thing was the way we played with some very non-traditional methods of lighting, using everything from bare bulbs to heaters as a light source, heh (like in these pics below)...

     

No matter what crazy things we tried, it was always fun when Liz and I collaborated to create imagery... *nostalgic face*

The following pics weren't shot by Liz, but were mostly for various modeling-guinea-pig experiences during the time I lived in Jersey... these next 4 were shot at NJ's legendary 'Dover Mental Cage' (learn more the infamous creepy Cage in the woods here)...

     

...and this rusty old swing tucked away under the creeping vines made a gorgeous backdrop for these 3 Breakfast-At-Tiffany-esque shots. Don't I look (almost) innocent?? Ahhh... the sweet, innocent nature-girl. Yeah, that's me! Sometimes. Ha. 

       

The veiled pic was shot in a graveyard (the 'Interstate Burial Ground', also in NJ), the tree-creeping pic was shot somewhere in the Pine Barrens of NJ.

The pics below are from my first time in the Atlantic Ocean (Point Pleasant, NJ) It was really great- the water was nice and warm, I got to get all wet and then roll around in the sand (much to the delight of the two old lecherous fisherman just down the beach), and, I didn't get eaten by a shark. Outstanding.

       

These next 4 pics were taken in a dingy old basement, kind of a spur-of-the-moment thing just for fun. Cool boots though, eh?? (too bad I couldn't actually even stand in them, heh)...

     

And finally, just an odd assortment of pics from over the years... there's me looking deceptively sweet/innocent... me flippin' my hair while wearing a Morticia costume, Halloween 2000... me acting silly as a cig-smoking angel... me taking a picture of my dorky self...

     

... then there's me, getting inked (a kind of Betty-Page-esque fairy tattoo which covers half my back)... and  me looking all broody and moody in the shadows... and me hiding under the covers, with bedhead, no makeup, and all. Ha.

     

And then, there's me, hanging poolside on the 4th of July in Jersey... embarking on the Texas Shade-saw Massacre... lost in the desert wilderness outside of El Paso (holy crap I'm WHITE!!)...

       

... and me flippin' the bird to someone, aw how sweeeet... and then finally, there's me hanging out (and trying to look all CEO-ish) in my very first home 'office' a few years ago... it was about the size of a closet, hahaha. Fin!
