~ About My Pin-up Damsels Series ~ These are not "pretty girl tied up" sets. My Pin-up Damsels series is an homage to the Film Noir and Pulp Pin-up of yesteryear. Call it make believe as played by grown ups. This is a chance for the models to play with expression and character, and for me to play with lighting and style. This is about fantasy and flirtation. The promise, not the pay off.
That is why this series is titled Pin-up Damsels.... "They're Bound to Tease"
~ Pulp Damsel Series ~ The current Pulp Damsel archtypes I am playing with are:
Reporter in Trouble - You've just gotten all the proof you need to expose the local crime lord. Unfortunately, his goons have made sure your story won't make it to press on time. Wardrobe would be a button up blouse, skirt, hose and heels. Glasses would be good too.
Babysitter's Blunder - Maybe agreeing to play cops & robbers with the neighborhood trouble maker wasn't the best idea. Who knew jump rope was so strong? This one's straight out of an old "I Love Lucy" episode. Wardrobe would be a simple cotton dress or t-shirt with shorts or capris.
Bound Betty - What classic damsels series would be complete without a Bettie Page themed set? In this case, the damsel has chosen to use her feminine wiles on her captor to get out of her current perdiciment. Wardrobe would be classic, retro looking lingerie with hose and heels.
~ On the Horizon ~
Intro to Shibari - My ropework thus far has been fairly simplistic to both stay with the Pulp Novel theme and to not intimidate models new to rope work. I'd like to do sets that contain some more intricate ties with patterns of an artful complexity. Of course, to do so I'd need a model who is adventurous enough to try and patient enough to wait for the end result. :-)
Riots of Color - Over the years I have acquired rope and tape in all mannor of colors. However, with my focus on a retro style, I've rarely had chance to use them. I have plans to change this. :-)
Restrained Emotion - I mean raw emotion. There are two ways I see this going. The first being that animalistic rage that boils up from within. The other being the more sensual "eyes closed so as to highten the other senses" enjoyment. The lighting would match with the emotion; harsh or soft as the case may be. The outfit would be a simple tee shirt and panties. For the rage emotion, the cloth can be torn and frayed in places (I will provide outfit for this so you do not have to destroy your own). There would also be a beads of moisture on your skin and your hair would be damp and mussed up too. All of this to potray the emotion that is kept pent up inside. The ropes being the visual reprisentation of the emotion being held back. All the shots would be tight in and slightly off center to enhance the raw quality of the look.
