What Not to Do: The Abs Round-Up

And now, for another edition of What Not to Do!

Or this may be the first...but the first of what is surely many to come. Ah, back to dating. Did you think I'd let you boys off easy with food and burlesque all the time? Ha.

This will be the Abs Round-Up: A collection of six-packs, with possibly no intelligence within. Remember my Advertise Your Manliness post? Do not post picture of just your abs. Don't.

Anyone who's been on a dating site will recognize the following kind of photo:

While this bathroom is nice and tidy(with a pretty shade of blue on the walls)
a better picture would show this boy shirtless and doing some cleaning.
Scrub that tile!

Yup, that's right: abs.

Some guy, standing in his bathroom/bedroom/mom's house, lifting his shirt up in front of the mirror. Hell, for variation there may be no shirt at all.

What do boys think this accomplishes? I mean yes, abs are nice. Especially when there're more than one of them. But really, what does that say? If your abs are the only thing about yourself that you're proud of...get a hobby. Outside of the gym.

Please see the exhibits below to further prove my point:

Now this guy...yeah. Boxers showing? Check. iPod product placement? Check.
Sassy smirk? Check (trust me, it was there).

Please boys, do not try to pull the Play Girl poses. Leave that up to Taylor Lautner and his Teen Beat cronies. Is that magazine still around?

Below, please see the trio of low low pants. Shades inside, gold bling and hiked-up shirts definitely make you a candidate for brain-donation. But hey, at least you have nice obliques.

Notice how the pants keep...getting...lower?

Did you know that posing on an angle makes you look skinnier? I wish I had abs like that just by taking a page out of this guys' book! And look, below we have a perfect pair of examples of the proper shirt-lifting form!

What should you have instead? Take a look at my other entry for a guide to better pictures.

Until then, here's some more jock-boy junk food.

Bonus points for the cowboy hat and wife-beater combo, am I right?

Mmmm, can't you just smell the intelligence?

Till next time!

Get Your Makeup Did!

Am I keeping busy? You betcha. Time for some self-promotion! (Give me a break, most of my 9to5 goes to glitter and rent, in that order)

Once a month or so, I've been running a makeup event in conjunction with my boy-creature and a photographer I've worked with for a few years now. Revealingly titled 'Get Your Makeup Did,' it's a chance for people to get a mini-makeover and a bunch of pictures for their portfolio, facebook, or the coveted position above the fireplace mantle. All this for the low price of $50*

We offer raw files and up to three edited photos for your use, all print size.

The next event is happening at Chez Moi (is that even vaguely French for 'my place?') on July 18th and we're already booked up with some lovely local burlesque ladies!

Here are a few samples of what we're up to:

Firstly, my boy-creature Mark Boyer and I, your wonderful hosts.

Yeah, this is pretty much what we're like all the time.

The photographer is my dear friend Ken Lam, who has been working with me since before I was a model. He's a doll, and quite good at what he does.

Take a look at a few examples of Selected Sass below! And don't worry boys, there's room for you too! Our last shoot featured a face painting, so stay tuned for some more pics from past events.

The ever-adorable Bibi Bourgeon (debuting her burlesque-bits soon at Strip Search!) and Kristen T., who's frikken cute, and works as a model/actress.

Here we have the gorgeous and talented Teresa from Lady Luck Productions, and Lily Lemonpie (one of Coco Framboise's bonbons and the runner up to Strip Search 2010!).

The session that just occurred featured burlesque dancer Kenickie Street, and the upcoming session in July will have tassel-twirling wonders Dolly Berlin, Venus De Lys, and Fan Tan Fanny of the Firecrackers!

We have more sessions coming up sometime in August and September! Stay tuned!
