So I was looking at Art Irritant, the site I did my modeling debut back in 2008. And it got me nostalgic. I remember when I sent them my application, and how excited I was when I was accepted to do shoots for them. I was told about all the concepts I’d do with them. I only did one… It still leaves me a little bitter, but I’m almost over it now. Especially with me cutting down on the nudity, I wouldn’t be any good for them.
But god, shooting with them was amazing.
- People can claim an additional dependent on their taxes.
- Pregnant women working full time would break child labor laws.
- 3 words: Children Eat Free!
- Pregnant women can drive in HOV lanes.
- Sex with a pregnant chick is pedophilia and breaking & entering. (“Get outa ma house!”)
- “No entry to this NC-17 movie for you, lady.”
I haven’t shot much in the past couple of months. Honestly, I don’t have a lot of time for that. And I’m getting a little bit bored with the nude and fetish work I do. I’m not sure why… It’s weird. I have been modeling for almost 4 years now, and for some assignments, I don’t get as excited anymore.
So I am thinking of doing more pin-up type of work. I know I’m not perfect for that, side I have tattoos, short hair, piercings… I’m currently building a vintage lingerie wardrobe, after finding this awesome vintage place on St-Laurent Street (in Montreal). Since I know I’m pretty much never going to make bank with my modeling, even naked, why bother with stuff I don’t enjoy as much now?
I will still shoot with the people I’ve worked with multiple times in the past. Mainly because these people have become good friends of mine, and I really enjoy working with them. So to any of you reading this, you know who you are, and you don’t have to worry. :) I just don’t think I want to do much erotic work anymore. Maybe it’s me getting older. I don’t know. I feel I’m not entirely comfortable with it as I used to be.
I am starting burlesque striptease classes next week, and I am very excited about it. This is part of what makes me want to pursue pin-up. Truth is, I’ve always had a fetish for vintage lingerie and everything burlesque, but it’s hitting me now that I want to explore that world. I’m not going to make bank off this either, but it looks like lots of fun, so why not?
There’s also another reason as to why I want to do that type of work.
I shot with Danny Portieous a couple weeks ago, and this is some of the result. My fiance and friends have been commenting on how much I looked like a 1940s actress, and it got me thinking… Why not give it a shot, you know?
I need to start working with more MUAs though. But that’s a detail. We’ll see how that goes.
