One Day To Go!

That’s right, you only have ONE DAY LEFT to Vote Velvet for the Miss Viva Las Vegas pinup contest finals!

This is a huuuuuuge deal for me (I mean HUGE). Representing my country, my message and everyone who believes in me at the world’s largest pinup pageant would be an incredible opportunity, and one I likely won’t have the opportunity to travel for it again – at least not for the foreseeable future!

BUT I NEED YOU TO VOTE VELVET!
It only takes around seven seconds.
I know you’re busy, but those feel good vibes from helping a fellow human will be worth it. 

There are two hundred applicants, and only the six with the most votes will fill the remaining spots in the finals. Voting closes at midnight on January 31st 2019 PST.

So…

  1. Visit the Viva Las Vegas Pinup Contest page
  2. Scroll down until you see this photo with my name under it.

    3. Now hit that VOTE button!

It will ask you to enter your email and a security captcha – the captcha is case sensitive and you will need to include the space between the words. Don’t worry, they won’t spam you with emails, just one to confirm your vote!

And that’s it! You’re done!

For extra credit and good deed vibes go on and share that link with your friends, family, co-workers, frenemies and strangers on public transport. (You can repost it from my Facebook or Instagram if that’s easier!)

Wet Look | Boardroom Meets Bathtub Kink

I have some really weird ideas sometimes.

Ya’ll can probably imagine how I plan most of my shoots; outfits are tried on, hair and makeup planned and poses considered. But sometimes I just show up with a suitcase of clothes and go ” Hey Mike, I had this really fucked up idea. It might not work but…”

This was one of those shoots.

Shoot Concept

Office bitch meets bedroom kink, only it’s in the bath.

Why? No idea.
Mainly because it looks cool. Sometimes that’s enough.

Seriously though, in my mind the textures of the stockings, shirt, bathtub and water looked interesting together. I also like to get out of my pin up comfort zone and make absurdly odd art. The weird ideas don’t always work, but they keep me on my creative toes! I like to think they keep you guys thinking too, imagining scenarios to explain the sitation.

Outfit Details

This whole fucked up situation was sparked by my PVC stockings. I’ve had them for aaaaaaages, but never wore them because I didn’t know what to wear with them except more PVC, and that seemed a bit…basic. Then it struck me – like any garment, the key to wearability was balance. Or no pants.

I decided to play it safe, balancing the fetishy wet look stockings with a button down shirt and pussy bow tie. And no pants. (Who needs leg prisons anyway amiright?.) A black and white colour scheme keeps the outfit cohesive, while the shirt and tie reference power dressing and boardroom style. I feel like the normality of the shirt counteracts the low brow connotations of the PVC thigh highs, giving the viewer an opportunity to view them in a different light. Layering a PVC bikini under the shirt contrasts sexuality with formality and adds visual interest.

Obviously this outfit needed some fierce shoes to finish it off, so I borrowed the heels of death from Mike’s kit. They’re three sizes too big, but the look still works darling!

As always, fans of Froger and I can find the rest of this photoset over at frogerphoto.com. You should probably sign up for a membership while you’re there, he photographs stone cold foxes in vintage and fetish styles and you don’t want to miss them.

You’ll discover dozens of Velvet vs Froger pinup images here on my blog too. Just use the search box in the sidebar, or start with some of my favourites…
