A Taster.....

By cattyal  
A taster of what's to come if I can ever bring myself to remove a few layers of thermals! At least I've got the outfit (yay for charity shops) - so all I have to do now is strip off and take the photo.

Linda the manequin is proving quite handy!

Oh I will - definitely not tonight though - the thermometer currently reads about 50f upstairs and quite frankly that's too chilly for me.....

Hopefully a real flesh & blood version will be better - when it's not covered in goosepimples Smile

Thanks for the mod Brian - I still find it very very hard to escape the dark side!

Too fecken cold I hear the reply
Too fecken right lass.

Too right Roy - maybe I'll get brave before Christmas actually arrives!

Her left arm is a bit busted - the socket in the body needs fitting back in and I've not got round to sorting that out yet. Actually she looks better with no arms and, I think, with a bag over her head Smile

It would be kinda nice if the crowds were indeed baying but I can live with a little bit of muttering!

(My view to click ratio is doing exactly what I expected - not that I was anticipating any clicks as this is just for fun)

The return of the bag! Definately adds the air of mystery to your wonderful portraits. Good luck with the weather Wink

Blimey - thank you for the HC Pete - that's a very nice way to round off my day! Does that mean I might squeeze an EC if I iron the background and actually wear the dress? Wink

And thank you again everyone - this mannequin is proving pretty useful if a bit of a lump to move around. I really must fix her arm this weekend and see about getting the make-up off her and redone. These bags really do come in handy!

Thanks again everyone ....

Not sure that my figure is better but at least it's real flesh and blood (plus her waist is about an inch smaller than mine and she's about 6 inches taller) .

Hopefully I'll get something done for real over the weekend......

Thanks Stuart - I must root out the dress again for another session before Christmas!

My V2 model lives on the landing - well her torso does - looking down the stairs at visitors and wearing the punk skull mask Smile Her legs are at the bottom of the stairs acting as plant stand with two big spider plants on top!
