Not So Loyal Subject

Hmm that blog title might be a bit too clever! But I'll roll with it.

I am performing at Dixie's Dollhouse on Thursday the 28th, it should be cool. Wonder if it will give me the high it did last time. Looking forward to meeting a few new people from Twitter & Facebook who say they are coming along.

So a few weeks ago I modelled for a life drawing class at Sunderland University, such a weird experience, I am glad I did it though and I would love to be able to do it again sometime. Strange sensation having a bunch of people looking at you when you can't really see what they are doing or what they make of you. I would have continued if it hadn't been 3 hours travelling for 3 hours of sitting still it was just a lot might see if I can do it in Newcastle, but Sunderland wasn't feasible. Also I don't like going to Sunderland anymore it makes me feel a bit sad. I remember how excited I used to feel going to see my boyfriend every stop just feeling the anticipation and it's not there now and the train journey's to Lincolnshire aren't as stress free as a metro trip.

Nothing much on apart from that Halloween at the weekend, I will be spending it will my children making a mess and being creepy, so pretty much like we are all year round.

If anyone fancies emailing me some hugs at this time they would be gratefully received!

Bend Me, Shape Me, Anyway You Want Me...

So I know I have shared some images from a shoot I did last month with a photographer in Sunderland, I am not going to name him now or anything. I signed a model release form basically saying he could do anything he wanted with the images, post them anywhere, they were his yadda yadda, yadda.

I received the first to images from him the one I posted in my last blog, they were pretty nice, obviously he'd done a bit of work on me which is cool, I don't have particularly good skin and one of the images was meant to be a homage to Elvgren.

I have also received other images such as this one which I really like.

I am a size 10/12 lady, I am comfortable with that, I have grown to accept most of my body for what it is I am reasonably confident and pretty happy. I have a man who loves me and I don't even think it is my appearance he is particularly attracted to anyway. I was very disappointed to receive the image below. I don't look like me, I look about 3 stone lighter and apart from that I look sort of hideous. I was a smidge on the offended side, it's not like I said "Oi mate I carry a bit of weight on my arms could you make me a bit slimmer" he made the decision to lob the weight off me. I don't look like me, I barely look human, it looks like a genetic mistake. I will also add the guy was lovely and I was at ease shooting with him, it's not like the shoot wasn't a pleasant experience because when I was there it was great, productive and comfortable.

I know I previously said I like working with my boyfriend because he captures the essence of Dani, I can't expect all photographers to do this but what I can expect is for them to leave a bit of me in there or what is the point. I can't use this image it's useless to me, all I can do is stipulate in the future that I don't want to be turned into some lollipop head.

Got back from Nick's today not going to see him for over two weeks now, which is uber sucky, we'll deal though we always do. We seem to spend our lives arranging to visit each other, or talking about/ complaining about public transport. Here's me and Nick at a train station, I kinda feel that this era of our relationship will have a nickname in the future. I am trying really hard not to think that far ahead. but it's hard when all you see is essentially fog. Oh well Amor Vincit Omnia! I know it will all come good in the end, with my iguana, red kitchen and Baltic inspired floor.

Pop Goes The Cherry..

Firstly I had a wonderful weekend, my boyfriend came up and between him and my best friend they made me feel tonnes better about getting my kit off in public. Firstly thank you muchly to those two! Also thank you to the lovely Carole, Sharon, Lisa and Nicky who came along too, was nice to have my homedudes there for me.

The theme of the evening was Horror Movies, and I chose to do Rocky Horror, most people know it and if I was absolutely crap at least the audience could drown themselves in a familier soundtrack. I was being Janet although I did consider being FrankNFurter!

Here are some pics of me doing my thing, shot by delicious lump of lover Nicholas Gray (who also gifted me with my eyelashes don't you know!) :) Here is my gorgeous Able Grable Boudoir Kitten in Black and Wink ;)

As it stands my next performance is the 19th of November but I am trying to sort out one before that. Nothing much in pipeline apart from vintage bridal shoot with lanky studmuffin Jason McCullagh who just happens to by my Nick's bestest bud!

The Next Step

So I have been doing pin up modelling for a while now and next Friday I will be doing my first little bit of burlesque. I am an intense mixture of terrified and excited. I will the performing at The Shadow Gallery Burlesque Show, The Hive, Sunderland. Plenty of other sexy ladies there also! Check them out and hunt them down on Facebook.

I won't reveal too much info about my act but my costume feature bits from Able Grable, Violaceous Latex, Adora Belle Pasties and Stockings and Romance. It's a gorgeous mixture of black and pink, I am yet to try it all on together but I am very excited.

A few of my mateys will be dressed up and there to cheer me on! I am hoping my boyfriend may be there for to give me a hug if I trip, fall or fail! :D

Had a shoot with local Sunderland photographer David Evans recently, who informed me how tartan my accent is. I do have a weird voice although hopefully none of you will ever get to hear me speak I may lose a few fans. In the following image I am wearing all Stockings and Romance undies, you should check them out, you can purchase S&R from one of my favourite lingerie emporiums Joanna's Wardrobe. A new version of the Pin Up Girdle I am wearing has been released and it is amazing, I much prefer it to the one I own. Humf!

Had a lovely couple of days with my boyfriend, just got his birthday pressies :D getting my arse into gear for a week of normality with extra boobies and recovering from my nightmare journey home yesterday! Hoping to see y'all in Sunderland! If not I am going to have to force someone to take some photos.

With My Body I Thee Worship

So no real news from Casa La Beau! Don't have any shoots set in stone, was meant to have one next weekend but have had to cancel there are two local togs who I have been trying to sort shoots with for months but our schedules never have a mutual window. I will though, preferably studio work now on the grounds that I apparently never wear trousers and it's freezing outside.

I am waiting for images from a couple of shoots though and I kinda like that. Also at the end of the day if I can get to spend time with my boyfriend that is more important than being shot! I do want to get some pics taken in my burlesque costume so I will need to set that up, and me and my Mr are wanting to do a shoot together, I had wanted to do it before Halloween but it doesn't look like that is going to happen now, nevermind it will still be a larf!

I got some Bridal shoot images from my shoot back in May with Christeeny, I have decided I make a rubbish bride and would rather be a Ninja. For peeps visiting my blog from places far away, this is my hometown it's bridgey and the sky is regularly morbid.

Also got these images back from the shoot on Wednesday (or was it Thursday!?) that I went to with my brother from another mother Nick Murphy, I quite like it, I appreciate that I don't feel the need to play it safe even though, lets be honest, I have an odd face. I am in no way generically pretty. Sometimes I think models are required to act rather than just doing stoic fierceness.
