It's a nice barkcloth! I got it for $9 a yard. I only bought two because I'm not sure what I'm making out of it yet. Is it weird that I want to make a cabana set out of it? I'd find a nice lining for it if I do it. I have my other one to model patterns off of. Who knows, if all goes according to plan I might be going to Viva!

This past Saturday was the group shoot with my Valentines Day set. The whole set we built down to the wire, as most are with me. Haha! But it ended up coming out well. I shot 4 girls and for $50 they are getting 5 edited and watermarked photos for the web. Now of course, I had a friend take some photos of me in the set, it wouldn't be a group shoot if I didn't get shot.
It was a fun set. It didn't photograph the way I hoped. I had to use my flash, which I don't like doing because it casts shadows. But without my flash the drapes came off purple. I'll give you a bit of a backstage look. I had set up shop in my bedroom, which meant clearing it out etc.
As I went to hang up the drapes I realized I had nothing to hang them on so I just(to the unhappiness of my mother) banged in a few nails and strung it up on rope!
Hard at work? I think not! I have a feeling I was just putting on music. Gotta love Podcast on iTunes when You can't get your music to work. I love Easy Ed's Variety Hour(now two hours) Look it up!!

I was just saying to someone that if I were to ever perform on stage in any manner(may it be sideshow, boy burlesque etc) that my name would be "Baby Shane" that way the name of my act could be "Whatever Happened to Baby Shane?"
I'm going to leave you with a video of Dita Von Teese. Oddy enough not stripping. But she does talk about a dildo camera.

And all of this needs to be done for the 23! I've got a lot of work ahead of me and little to no time. Right now I'm having troubling getting girls to book the shoot. As of right now with the number of girls I wont come close to breaking even. I'm charging $50 for 5 edited photos and that includes hair and makeup. Which I am doing myself this shoot. Which brings me to some questions if any of you ladies can help.
What kind of hairspray or setting lotion do you use?
If you use hot rollers, what brand and size are they?
What other methods of hair curling do you use effectively?
Where can I find nice makeup brushes that aren't too expensive? I wish I could buy MAC brushed and makeup but I could not afford that at all!
What Brand of makeup do you suggest?
What shade of red lips do you think is most versatile for most skin tones?
What colors of eye shadow should I get?
If you have any tips or trick I would greatly appreciate it!
