This photo set was shot for the newest Pinup Lifestyle contest, “On The Phone”. Please go here or click on the first image to vote for my submission, “Call Me”. You can view the rest of the lovely entries here. Voting is open through February 27th.

I thought it would be really cute to wear these vintage longline underwear that I bought from Vintage Treasures Girl Boutique on eBay. I love how they were originally white but were dyed hot pink. After a couple of return trips to thrift stores I found an old phone to spray paint pink. Unfortunately I couldn’t find a really old phone but this worked in a pinch. It also wasn’t fully dry so I did get a little paint on myself but I didn’t edit it out of the photos because I thought that it looked kind of cool. You can view all of the full photos in the different photo effects in my Photobucket album.

I played my Best of Britney Spears CD that I made last year while I was posing. I listen to it often, it’s especially great for exercising too. I replicated most of it here except that I also have her song She’ll Never Be Me from her unreleased album Original Doll on my CD. You can find it on torrent sites.

So a couple of weeks before the highly anticipated (by me) film Burlesque came out I decided that I had to do a photo set inspired by it. Of course I got sidetracked. I couldn’t just throw something together because I figured that I needed to buy an elaborate bustier and a prop glitter microphone. Then it had been so long that I figured that I would just wait for the DVD release.

However, PinupLifestyle announced that they were having a Burlesque contest so I figured that was just the push I needed to make this thing happen. They finally put the really cute beige French style lingerie I had been lusting after on sale at Target and then I just added some accessories (turns out I already had a suitable microphone). while I was shooting I listened to the Burlesque Soundtrack and Christina Aguilera’s Back to Basics album. I was sad to find that the 2nd disc (my favorite) is now skipping and I need to replace it. First go vote by clicking here or on the first picture shown, it’s my submission photo “Seeking Burlesque”. I like it because it’s a bit of a Nomi Malone face. You can view all of the gorgeous ladies submissions here. Voting is open through January 30th.

Enjoy!

Since it is (or, ahem, was yesterday) the holiday season I have been using some of these old photos on my social networking profiles. Those were just copies of the old, barely edited copies that I had on my Myspace from back in the day. Of course I didn’t know I had the (5MP, blast from the past) originals on a CD which I just happened to come across a few days ago. So I thought it would be fun to re-edit these now.

There is a cute story about this outfit. At that time I was even more broke than I usually am now & was on a Live Journal community in which everyone volunteered to send stuff that they had around their houses but weren’t using. I mentioned that I had always wanted a sexy women’s Santa outfit but never had the dough to buy one. A woman messaged me who told me that she had one that she had worn for her husband a couple of years prior but then just shoved in a closet. Then she had a baby. She said the boy was now a toddler & had recently seen part of it peeking out of the closet & asked “Mommy, why is Santa’s costume here?” so she wanted to get it out of her house. I am not one of those ‘aw, kids say the darndest things’ type of people but I thought that was cute.

So I took these for fun. It was when I had just started taking pics so I was just worried about how I looked & trying to pose with very little thought to the background. So I figured this is an opportunity to remedy that a bit with fun Picnik frames. I have worn pieces of these outfits out a few times, such as a Christmas party that my sister and I threw back in 2007. Just click on the below group party shot for more (really old) party antics. Ugh, it did involve me making my own absinthe. I do miss having that long hair, lol.

This is another set that I took because of a Pinup Lifestyle Contest. They truly do come up with the most awesome ideas. The title of this contest is Sweets & Candy. Click here on the first photo (which is my entry) to vote! Go here to view all of the lovely ladies. I also recommend becoming a member of PUL if you love retro bombshells. People are super nice on there too. Anyway I had fun coming up with the outfit and finding the candy I wanted to use. Unfortunately I am still getting the hang of using my tripod. I think some of the shots my head got cut off of may have been better but oh well. I am learning. So I included a couple of headless ones that I like too, because this my blog and I can. Concerning the butt pics, I’m wearing rhumba panties but you don’t get the full effect from the front so I had to include those. I’m not sure I like the topless one but I had to share it anyway. Also make sure to listen to the special candy list I made (& posed to) for this set. Then check out the polyvore to get the look. P.S. Yes, I did use Sweettarts to roll the front of my hair.

Last month I bought a cheap tripod (so cool), headed to what was my favorite cemetery growing up and took some photos for the Pinup Lifestyle’s Dia de los Muertos Contest. Go here to learn more about the holiday. I always thought they were exaggerating during challenges on America’s Next Top Model, but alas they were right, it is more difficult to take photos outside. A lot of my pics were unusable because I was squinting or closing my eyes to avoid the wind. I forgot that they had moved the police station right down the street and worried I’d get in trouble when a cop car drove by but they didn’t stop. I imagined them chuckling and shaking their head. Hey, it’s got to be better than the teens who use the place to drink and then litter there at night, right? I could say that I hadn’t posted this because I was busy and hadn’t yet edited the photos but the truth is that I was bummed at losing another PUL contest. Most of the contests are so creative though that I feel like by not trying I am just hurting myself because I’m missing out on the neat photos I’ll end up with. The winner was this cool pic. Everyone else seemed to focus on close ups of their makeup. Mine was okay, not fantastic, I’m no makeup artist but my favorite pics of mine were not close up so I don’t think they would have had a better shot anyway. My first pic is the one I used as my submission. I’m into slideshows right now but if you want to see the regular, full size photos go here.

My d├ęcolletage isn't that light and my eyes aren't that color. Thanks Picnik for the vampire Halloween effects.

About the Makeup: First I did a Google image search to see what others had done to get ideas. Then I bought a cheap black and white Halloween makeup set, like this. I decided against using the black on my eyes because they are sensitive. I just used my own black eyeshadow by Revlon. It’s like this but it doesn’t have any glitter in it. Then I used a little green eyeshadow plus some awesome yellow Sugarpill Buttercupcake Eyeshadow. There are different ways to do the lips for this. Most people either do the sewn shut look that I went for or the teeth look, which is too complex for me.

FYI: I got a great deal on this dress. It’s a bubble rose dress by Leola Couture which usually retails for $220 but was $12 at ideeli. I highly recommend going here and signing up for this free, members only, designer sale site.
