This has been too much fun… Taking advantage of the goofy decor in the hotel suite, we were able to do a double corset shot with the head of William Shakespeare in the background.
This “self-portrait with 10-second timer” thing has proven to be a bit of a challenge, however… this one catches nursemyra doing a last minute rack adjustment…
We had better luck with the set photographed by the orange chaise lounge. Red leather corset purchased in Chicago, and my powder blue lace rig found in an East Village thrift store.
nursemyra has posted her photos from the Chicago session here. Love the one of her sitting across the lounge chair!
We had a blast. Our NYC tourguide, unbearable banishment, was an absolute delight! Meeting Shrink Rap and alone…with cats? Delicious! We giggled our way through Manhattan, fueled by margaritas!
And our local host in Chicago was none other than rassles! She is so much fun to hang out with, i’m just going to have to come back! Suspect that we could find all kinds of trouble under the right circumstances…
Reads slowly, then remembers to delete browsing history 🙂
these aren’t that bad… you should see some of the out takes, though! that 10 second timer thing is tough!
It was a fantastic holiday but meeting all the other bloggers was the highlight wasn’t it?
So sad it’s all over now *sob*
the meet-ups were definitely a highlight! so cool when the friends who live inside your computer pop out and become real!
and yes… the re-entry after the holiday has been a bit of a challenge. motorcycle? still not done. work? huge cluster-fuck. dog? painted my carpets with poo… (sigh)
what a delicious duo. damn “10 second timers”.
if there was a 20 second setting, my old bones would have had an easier time getting all situated and stuff…
The Jet Set Girls!
we are pretty boring…. at least most afternoons, when we’re snoozing our way through the hottest part of the day!
Goin’ big time! Betcha you didn’t stay in no trailer parks in NYC or hog town.
nursemyra got us some pretty wonderful digs in NYC, so we had to find something wonderful in Chicago, too! a camper simply wouldn’t do… and air conditioning was rather necessary!
Very happy to have had you. Maybe not in the biblical sense, but still a joy to hang around you guys. Encore.
will have to do it again. but i’m going to wait until it cools off just a tad… ouch…
Hooray and happy times! Saucy snaps and fabulous friends. Nusemyra is a great ambassador from our southern shores.
i’m pretty sure that the Australian government would be well served to put her in charge of tourism and trade!
You guys are gorgeous! I so wished that I could tag along to Chicago. I can only imagine what a great time you had. Drat you.
there were fruity drinks, and games of bananagrams played on bar tables! we’d love to have had you there! we’ll just have to do it again!
So . . . next time I go to Chicago, I should be sure to take my corset with me? I mean, I hate being left out.
absolutely, sister! i have no doubt that you’d rock the hardware!
Thanks for covering my idiot mistake.
Listen, you need to get your little chicken asses back here to New York. Come when it’s not such an inferno. Okay?
i’ll have to come back at Christmas! i like seeing you giddy!
I’m sorry I couldn’t make it to either destination. I could have worked that camera for you and the good nurse.
so very bummed the logistics didn’t work out…. we’ll just have to come back in the winter. in boot weather…
My mom and I went to Chicago a few years ago, but we didn’t bring corsets. You’re welcome, humanity.
i’m not sure about Momma, but i have no doubt you could rock the hardware if you wanted to… suspect humanity would welcome the opportunity! not the “Mom/Daughter Corsetry”. that’s kinda creepy…
So glad you both had a wonderful time. Ten second timers are challenging. They both take longer than you expect and much less time…
i almost feel like i should compose a song that follows the timer ‘beep music’. kinda like the “Jeopardy” song, or the Minute Waltz….
I can’t believe how awesome and not creepy you guys were. It was excellent.
“awesome and not creepy” is going on my resume! you’re fabulous! i still need to get hammered with you and kono sometime…
Lovely lovely pics!
I don’t like the 10 second timer because I have a hard time holding my stomach in that long!
i just put furniture, nursemyra, or a stuffed puffin in front of mine. my gut. my camoflauge.
