…Should You Choose To Accept It

1 Homberg Shoes_2

So I seem to have a mannequin theme going here, lately.

This was an accidental photo after I had spent literally hours on a totally different image wearing a different outfit in a different location using a different pose for the same theme. Don’t you love when a plan comes together? I just wish it had come together before I spent all that time on the other set up!

I was challenged by Rwah to create a photo of myself fixing my shoe. She had been challenged by Len Douglas to take a photo of herself fixing her bra. It was inspired by his photo of himself fixing his tie.

I, in turn, invited Wendz Tempest to create a photo of herself fixing her stocking. Her mission, which she has chosen to accept, is not only to create the image but to challenge someone else to fix something else.

We’re regular McGyvers here. No disrespect intended, Mr Phelps.

When Johnfrancis Laville passed me over this sexy Homberg, he said he wasn’t sure if it would work for a woman. Pffft, I say! What’s sexier than grabbing your man’s hat and slipping it on with a pair of Come Get Me pumps from Essenz and this tiny fishnet top and (broken) panties by Apple May Designs? Especially when you’re comparing yourself to a static model, even if she is dressed only in a rosebud? It’s all about standing next to some(one)thing that doesn’t look as good as you 😉

My mission is complete. *Cue self-destructing tape and sizzling match with cheesy 1960’s theme music*

Conducting Fireflies

1 Conducting The Fireflies

When I was a child, I spent countless summer evenings conducting fireflies. No, they aren’t actually musical, but if you watch them long enough you will begin to notice a rhythm to their movements: slow and intermittent at twilight, building to a crescendo as twilight deepens. As darkness descends, it is nearly impossible not to join them in their dance of mystical, musical whimsy.

I remember once catching them and putting them in a jar with holes punched in the top, hoping to experience their magic at any time of day. But in the morning, they were dim, sluggish and dark. Running outside, I opened the lid and released them, watching them slowly wander around the ground momentarily before taking flight – little jewels of black and red against the sunny sky.

I never captured fireflies again. Their beauty and majesty can only be appreciated when they flicker among the stars, creating a masterpiece that diminishes in captivity.

1 And Fireflies Alight The Night

Pose Fair 2015, a Hottie Cooterati event, opens at noon on April 11. It runs until the 25th, so be sure to stop in to find the latest creations by the best posemakers on the grid. Today I am featuring Pose Fair Exclusives from Dream Print Poses. The poses in my photos are from her Blogging collection and will not be sold after the event ends. I will update my post with the SLurl to the event once it is officially open. (Now open!)

Also new is the Aussie Bush Hat I am sporting, from JfL Hats. With Anzac Day coming up on April 25th, it is timely as well as fashionable. Do stop by to say G’day to John and take home this Aussie classic for yourself.
