Mayhem # 432406
*** I am currently traveling in California, and plan to be here for a few months. I could be anywhere in the state at any time so it's worth contacting me just to check! I will only be taking paid work unless you happen to catch me while I'm in your city and I am highly interested in the project. Thanks for checking in!
NOTE! if you'd like to work with me (or want me to write you back), a PM is necessary. Tags and FRs are great but they don't communicate!!
** Check out Richard Dubois Nudes at #870246 for a beautiful multi-model shoot in which I participated. And of course, to worship Richard for his genius. **
Hello friends and artists!
So welcome to curvaceous me. I am a nature girl but open to any idea. I have natural body hair, and hold it with grace, style, and confidence (and permanence! unless you're offering a gold bar or a SWEET shoot opp, this baby is staying soft and fuzzy!). A piercing graces both sides of my nose, and I have a home-designed Benjamin Chee Chee-style tattoo of a turtle on my right foot.
Everything else that comes after this gives you a decent idea of who I am as a model and what I'm interested in, but the most important thing is that I am a woman who respects herself and her body, and is indescribably frustrated with and maddened by the expectations put on women to be a "perfect 10." This creates tense, frustrated, lonely, obsessed, sad people who lack self-love. i know - I've been there. We must celebrate and respect the mind, spirit AND body. When we don't, there is hell to pay. The prevalence of CHILDREN with eating disorders in our communities is an embarrassing reflection of our societal values. When I model, I model because it's fun - it's art - it's interactive - it's creative - it's collaborative - not because I want to show off my booty. There's gotta to be more to it than that. besides, there are greater booties out there to show off. PHEW! Ok, I'm done.
So I'd love to explore alt period pieces right now - from Victorian era to 40's-style, but with some crazy twist. I want to wear something frilly atop a pencil skirt and tease my hair and hold a lollipop. Can anyone help me with that? I've never done fashion but I think I could pull that off.**
awesome model i admire for ideas: http://www.fashionmodeldirectory.com/mo … to/246252/
Also, I've been told I have the perfect body for recreating classical art. If you have the props, gimme a shout.
While my own photographs are often on the blurry side and i most love to work with available light only, I am interested in modeling for stark projects - be the starkness as physical as bright lighting, or as atmospheric/metaphoric as boldly-themed. I am very open to artistic nudity and eroticism, yet NOT pornography.
I am totally into multi-person shoots, clothed or nude, of two or more people. I do not mind being in the buff with other models, male or female, who have the same professionalism, humour, and artistic intent as myself.
Interesting make-up and wardrobe projects intrigue me greatly. I am 5-foot-4, so the runway is not my calling, but being small is useful for so many other adventures! Dress me up! I'd love people to play with my hair (twisty, dark brown with auburn highlights, all natural).
I love to work with communicative photographers who have a VISION and a PURPOSE. That is not to say that FUN is not a purpose! The relationship between photographer and model can be quite electric and progressive - I strive to find projects that stimulate me in this way.
I gotta be honest; I am make-up-ly challenged beyond concealer and mascara, but give me enough notice for a shoot (or a MUA!) and i'll come up with something good. Of course, I'm always up for no make-up (as that's how I go about my day anyway!). Freckles decorate my face, but i'm not too pale so they aren't stark.
If you choose to contact me about a project, I will review your work and ask for references from other models who have worked with you. I'll ask about compensation each time, but know that I hate money and wish we didn't need it to survive. Though modeling is a major source of income for me at this point, I still cringe when I ask. If you have any barter ideas, throw em out there. I drool at things related to: photography, musical instruments, fun wardrobe items that i could keep to use for other shoots, vegan baking, camping equipment, and rescue animals (donation?). Lastly, it is a given that I may be accompanied by a big intimidating chaperone if I so choose.
Peace, and HELL YEAH to fun.
