Thank you all so much for your opinions on the covers. They are being worked on at the moment by someone but I’m not revealing any more details till I can show you the end result. Then there will be LOTS of gushing. Some people really have been hit with the talent stick *sigh*. I found the picture below last night when I was looking for some stuff for ideas/concepts. This is a photo of Sian and I (and FYI Sian hates pink *hee*) at the end of the night after our first ever bodypaint (modelling that it).
The crazy hobby of bodypaint modelling is entirely Siany’s fault ;p She saw a sign for a ‘floating fashion show’ that wanted models. Curious, she enquired and found out the clothes were to be painted on. Now Sian as you can see is tinsy. Always has been. She has an insanely fast metabolism and can eat practically anyone under the table ;p so when she ventured the idea to me I was a little hesitant as standing semi-naked next to her could knock even the best self-esteem (I won’t lie, I’m a Leo so have healthy self-esteem *grin*).
Anyway I mentioned the idea to Glenn on the way home from work and when I spelled out (males *sigh*) that painted on did indeed mean only wearing a g-string he nearly hit the roof. And then said those now infamous words..
“THERE’S NO WAY YOU’RE DOING THAT!”
To which I (being a tad stubborn and refusing to allow anyone dominance over me) replied hotly “You can’t tell me what to do!”
And then two weeks later Sian and I were staring at each other in shock over a cuppa at Starbucks wondering what the hell we’d got ourselves into, while Glenn (cause there was NO WAY he was not going) sat beside us grinning from ear to ear because by now he found the whole concept hilarious. Especially the bit where I was wanting to chicken out but couldn’t…
In the end the day was FABULOUS and the most fun ever. I haven’t posted a full shot but if people are really interested I can. I just thought this was a ‘more is less’ pic ;p Not that any of the pictures are in anyway indecent but I do know there are some delicate souls out there. The other thing I love about this picture is it shows my beautiful amber ring that I bought myself when I graduated high school. It was unfortunately stolen from my desk at work last year : ( so one day I hope to find a piece I love as much again. The necklace I’m wearing is also painted on, cool huh!
And here is a link to an awesome video Peggy Sue found – I can’t believe the effort some people go to with their Christmas lights. It’s amazing!
