So here I am, frantically squeezing in just one more eensy, weensy "December", and "2011" blog entry - while intermittently cleaning my house and longing to go get showered and dressed - before company arrives for tonight's New Year's festivities.
(All pics. snapped on 12/28/11)
Fortunately, (for brevity's sake) I haven't got a whole lot to say about these pics....I do like how there appears to be a man's face in the mattress, diagonally to the left of my head in the photo above...it kinda creeped me out when I first noticed it while editing this series, but now whenever I look at these pics. - my eyes are immediately drawn to and fixed on "him".
Another thing is - these snaps were taken on the first really cold weather shoot I've done in what feels like forever...and I realized very quickly just how drastically low my tolerance has become - for posing naked in such uncomfortable conditions...
...Also, I did indeed wrap my lips and teeth around the leg of a dead deer, for about a dozen frames - until I finally got the picture above...aaand since I was wearing sticky, gooey lip gloss - my mouth was all globbed up with fur and dirt after each shot. No amount of spitting or spewing could ever completely remove all of the funk, which was undeniably gross. My friend Curlymoe is convinced that someday (if I keep actin' a fool, the way I do) I'll end up contracting rabies, or some other horrific disease. To that I say, "I shan't live in fear".
Because it was also windy that day, I thought something good might happen if I wore the gown that I recently scored at my neighborhood thrift - what with it's many layers of sheer, flowy fabric and all. Sadly though, it was a bit of a misfire.
Yipes! My first guest has just arrived...hate to beg off so suddenly - but there's a hefty amount of hostess-ing and partying to be done, y'all!
Before I go though, I feel that it would be remiss of me to not first THANK my wonderful readers for sticking by me all of this time. I can't tell you how much I appreciate your thoughtful, caring and insightful comments, along with your invaluable advice, and tips that have led me to shoot in locations about which I would've otherwise never even known. Also, a gigundo THANK YOU - to my fellow bloggers who have seen to it that their own readers have found their way to The Big Ugly...it's been a truly great year, and I wish you all - nothing but the BEST in 2012! CHEERS!
