My pics were denied...even for member review. I was told that I was super cute, but my pics weren't up to the standard. I'm not even sure what that means.

I'm getting really frustrated. I don't know what I need to do to make my pics up to standard...For 5 years now, I've been trying to get on...

Sounds like you are having one heck of a week -- hope your job situation works out. Would love to see the set(s) you shot and would definitetly give you candid feedback on "the standard" for what it's worth. I'm not a model by any means, but I am an artist who has been rejected many times by people/academics/critics who "don't get" my work. I know it's tough to keep moving forward with something in the face of "NO" but knowing you also sing, just think of the SG judges as a "tough audience" -- you're aready exploring other venues with your whole burlesque situation. So here's hoping the rest of your week gets better and post those sets if you can! smile

Well, I submitted my first set in a while! Not sure what's gonna happen with it, if it's just gonna go up for review or what...had some technical difficulties getting it up!

Because of these difficulties, (I ended up loading it twice, one pic at a time...what a pain! Yay computers! ;P), the set is under my photos in an album...

Well, made my burlesque debut last night!

For the most part, it went rather well! Everyone seemed to really enjoy it. The club said that they would book us again any time, and we had a couple of new girls that said they want to join in the fun!

There were some bumps, but that's to be expected with any new endeavor. And our...

Tomorrow is the day!

My burlesque troupe has it's very first show! I'm exciited...and a bit nervous!

Also, just waiting to get my pics from my photographer...we took around 2000 shots, so she's narrowing them down, and then, hopefully, I can get some stuff up here!!

nope, haven't seen that, but do quite like sam raimi tho, must rewatch evil dead and crimewave.

was just after something slightly subversive and it was kind of about rushing in, tea so good you can't be arsed messing about with a cup - how very unjapanese

i have a new idea for an image that'll come together in the next couple of months, just waiting for my hair to grow a bit longer

how'd the show go?

I forgot that sometimes, booking can be frustrating! I want to have all kinds of shows lined up for our Halloween Burlesque show, like yesterday! But, *sigh*, I am at the mercy of the clubs...

I just don't understand why clubs aren't jumping at the chance to have a bunch of girls come in and take their clothes off?!

We have one show...

Anything with you in it will be excellent, have fun and enjoy and that pleasure will come out in the results!

Ever see the cover to the Tom Waits album "Small Change"? Somethin' along those lines would be interesting...mixes the Cabaret/Burlesque, with a tinge of the artful and a nod to Diane Arbus.

Grrr....

I keep hitting a brick wall. First, the company that hired my burlesque troupe on for it's first show, went under, and the theatre didn't want to uphold any of their previous deals. They would want $1800 for the space for the weekend! Fuck a bunch of that.

So, I've been trying to book us in other venues...so far, little...

I'm all for you being a professional naked girl. I hope you get it worked out babe.

Keep plugging something will open up...tough economy might make venues a little conservative, seems a little bit repressed in these parts, keep trying the world never has enough professional naked girls! Peace Bill

been a while since I posted, guess I've been busy!

Tonight I'm holding auditions for my burlesque troupe I'm putting together! It's actually happening! We already have a big show booked for October!

I'm super excited, and nervous....I haven't really led audtions or anything since I did Rocky Horror years ago!
micamars:
Damn shame you live so far south. Where are you going to be putting on shows at?
babyb:
Well, initially we'll be in Springfield, but would love to eventually take the show on the road!

Call it boredom. Call it procrastination...I should be cleaning house, or sculpting, or sewing...something productive. I think its' just my excitement of starting the wheels going on The Cherry Bomb Burlesque...

Anyhow, I pulled out some old costumes and lingerie, and spent the evening playing with my camera, and photo-editing.

Ta-da!
