Model is BadCharlotte, full image under cut due to mild NSFW-nessCollapse )

Finally learning to drive. I'm *much* calmer at this now at 22 than when my mother harangued me into a permit at 17. No one/thing was injured in the last hour, there wasn't even any sort of close call :D It's a bit of a pity that Kory insisted on getting a manual transmission for our car ("they're more fun to drive!!" hurrr....), and as I'm not ready to learn that on top of stopping/turning/backing up, I have to make special arrangements to borrow automatic cars to practice in. Ah, well. With any luck I'll have enough experience to get my proper driver's license by the end of spring. 

Also, photo-post! Two things:
1. Apparently I've got a full-page tearsheet in Harlow Magazine?? I can't seem to find the bloody thing anywhere to purchase tho. It's the "I hate Raquel Reed" edition, whatever number that happens to be. Rocklove forwarded me this snapshot:

2. BadCharlotte visited me a couple weeks ago, and this following is one of the sets we shot (I'm still working on the other).

A little over a month ago, I chopped most of my hair off. It's now .5-1" long in back, bangs in front. This was spurred by a nasty 36hrs in the Greyhound bus system (hard to sleep with hair pinned back with sticks) and the idea that "huurrrrr, I no longer model, it doesn't matter if I'm ugly nao!".

It was a mistake.

I feel, for lack of a better word, *coarse* without my long hair. It doesn't look bad, but I hate that it's now difficult to look feminine and polished, and hence, *feel* feminine and polished. I gave it a month to try to come to love being shorn, but it's not happening. I figure it'll be two years before I have any decent length again. Interim solution: I need a wig. Something long, blunt-banged, and dark colored, like this:

Can anyone recommend a seller/manufacturer of a similar style that's high quality? Is the wig imaged/linked a good one? If not, alternates would be highly appreciated! I don't mind paying a bit more for something nice- quality lasts longer and looks better.

BTW, this is what my hair looks like now:

1. The car thievery incident has turned out to be a blessing in disguise. Due to the extent of the damage, our insurance company is going to write it off as totaled and cut us a check to the tune of approx. $5200. Several months ago, someone sideswiped it and, tho the damage looked ugly, it was all cosmetic, and the insurance had paid us $1800 to fix it (only ever spent $500ish toward the repairs). Kory figures we can get $1500 out of the remaining autoparts. The best part of this all: we got an insanely good deal when we bought this sucker ($4400), so we'll end up profiting off this cursed vehicle by over $3.5k. Fuck yeah. This'll allow us to get a "nicer" (low milage) car, probably some make of Mazda.

2. My best friend Rachel--who currently lives in Sacramento--is coming to visit me Friday/Saturday/maybeSunday. Yay!!! Haven't seen her in the flesh for a year. I've gotten involved with her RPGing group using Skype, but that program can be annoyingly buggy. It'll be really good to hang out properly. Am considering planning a trip down to visit her in November (and maybe shoot with some mid-soCal models at the same time).

3. For one of my few custom-commissioned-clothes-allowances this year, I chose a really wicked ruffled shrug made in dark blue/black brocade, and it arrived yesterday :D I feel totally badass in this outfit. The fabric is much more luxurious than my webcam can capture:

 Somebody tried to steal our car last night. Our driveway was empty when looking out this morning-found the car 300 yards down the street with the hood popped, vital engine parts stolen, the CD player (and our case of burned CD copies) ripped out and gone. We figure the only reason we still have the body of the car is that Kory installed a kill-switch, and they couldn't get it to turn on. We just paid that fucker off (our last car died in January, had to get a "new" one), so our bank account doesn't have the money to deal with this shit now.
I'm trying not to cry.

Jeeeeez, haven't posted here in a while. Not much out of the ordinary has happened anyway (it's all shoot/sleep/retouch/work at the bookstore 1 or 2 days a week/rinse-repeat). Hmm. Ok, here's three things of note-
The awesome: After a fiasco with an airline canceling her first flight, BadCharlotte came and visited/shot with me roughly a week ago. Love that girl! I'm working on the photos featuring her right now.
The irritating: my bunny nibbled on the edges of my favourite corset. Now the piping at the bottom is all frayed :(
The inexplicable: Sometime over the last 6 months the bones of my hips have widened. Whut. I thought all growing/maturation was supposed to be finished by age 20. My measurements are now 35bust/25ish waist/38hips. Alas, unless I'm willing to see my ass disappear, I doubt I'll ever see a 36" hip measurement again. On the bright side, cuuuuurves, and they balance my shoulders better.

Other than that, I *do* have a whole bunch of photos that can be posted :D
This first set was shot for ArtificeClothing.com, and unless you lurk emilyofartifice 's site, it's unlikely all of the images below the cut have been seen ;)

Aorist: 14 more images under cutCollapse )

FS: F+F dress

Need to make some room in my wardrobe. I got this dress several months ago, wore it once for a couple of hours, and don't foresee wearing/using it in the future. It's in like new condition.
It looks exactly like F+F's photo (lulz, I ordered it in that coral/pink color before it was an option. Have a sneaking suspicion that's my dress on their mannequin). The fabric is sleek and thick- really nice weight to it. Made to fit measurements 35"bust/25"waist/36"hips, but it easily goes several inches larger.
$85+shipping, OBO- anyone one interested in taking it off my hands?

 Aha! Am almost through the hugeass backlog! Huzzahs! Only have Retroscope menswear photos to work on now :) It's going to be a real load off my shoulders when that's cleared out.
Just finished the last of the RomanticThreads shots with Charlotte modeling:


I've got to put together a bunch of prints for a gallery showing next week. I'd like to use one of these, but I don't know which. What's your favourite?
