Harlot At Heart

How do you have a fun Sunday?  Run around a wild west ghost town playing dress up with your friends dressed as a 1850's harlot!  I can not even tell you how fun this weekend was.  My friend Blake is applying to film school and part of the application process is submitting a series of photos that tell a story, it is amazing what he can get me to do...

Let me say getting to be a part of the shoot was amazing.  I was going off of three hours of sleep having helped with props the night before, but getting up at 7:00am on a Sunday for hair and make up was well worth it.  

The shot I was featured in was actually a few of us girls chasing Gary (above) out of the saloon.  The fun part about my costume, getting to wear my real-honest-to-goodness-can't-breathe-corset, heels, lace stockings, and showing a little leg.  The down part of my costume doing take after take running in my real-honest-to-goodness-can't-breathe-corset and heels.  My direction from Blake after a few shots was "more like a gazelle" my reponse was "honey, you try running like a gazelle in a corset and heels."  Let's say I have a new appreciation for women of the 1800's.  

I am so happy and proud that Blake was able to put all of this together...getting a permit for the grounds, story telling, imagination, organizing a group of "actors", creating the costumes with Gary, and keeping everyone smiling through the day.    Hopefully I'll have all of Blake's pictures soon but I hope you enjoy these that we took behind the scenes!

Beautiful Claire being laced up for her scene, Gary was so strong we really did need something to hold on to.

Any decolletage is due to padding, amazing shadowing, and one heck of a corset 

 Absolutely beautiful

After hours in the corset I think I deserved a treat!


  1. This is just AMAZING–you all look spectacular!

  2. I wish I could have been there! Though I'd probably have been more comfortable behind the camera, haha

  3. I am really loving the theme/design of your blog. Do you
    ever run into any internet browser compatibility issues?
    A handful of my blog readers have complained about my site not operating correctly in Explorer but
    looks great in Chrome. Do you have any recommendations to help fix this

    Have a look at my web-site: Going In this article
