As I mentioned early this week, I am Ms. November in the Blogger Body Calendar. But I am not a photographer, nor am I a visual person. I live in WORDS people. My photos are blurry and boring. Seriously.
I’ve read the posts my Medicinal Marzipan on her AWESOME photo shoot idea and attitude. And I’ve even seen The Bloggess photos (the link just goes to her blog people. I saw the pictures because I’m content manager and word connoisseur of the project. Or as sweet cheeks suggested I be called: OH GREAT MISTRESS of BBC2011. OGM has it’s perks.)
So my photo shoot is on Wednesday and I’m FREAKING OUT. I have NO IDEA what to do. None. Except maybe wear red lipstick. Because it matches my blog. Yes, I’m that devoid of ideas.
I am turning to you, my creative and cool friends (and the rest of you geeks too).
The only stipulations that I can think of:
- It’s a risque calendar… so near-naked is ok, also known as expected. Fully clothed is not. And totally naked seems a bit much, but we’ll see.
- I want to look like ME. (Probably not the unshowered version.) As much as I’m tempted to hide all my flaws, I don’t want to be afraid of… well, I might not be ready to LIST them yet, but I’m willing to photograph them. Because they make up my beautiful body.
- I want to incorporate what my blog is about (since it’s a BLOGGER body calendar), but I’m have no clue what my blog is about. Wait, no… I have no idea how to change my blog into a sexy photograph. And the only word used consistently to describe my blog is HONEST. (And now that Billy Joel song is stuck in my head. And yours. Don’t hate me. I NEED YOU.)
Will you help? I’ll love you forever. And if your idea wins my heart, I’ll be sure to tell the world. Because I know how to use words. Sorta. (which is pretty much not a word. at least i know how to use the Twitters. and get all Facebooky.)
Answer that sucks: I can’t tell you! (and that sucks.) I tried almost all your ideas but I haven’t chosen the final picture yet. And I still have to keep it on the DL until the calendar is out. BUT you were so helpful and awesome! THANK YOU!
