I'd been hoping to get some photography in during the last week or so but didn't really. But finding my neighbors, the Axelrods, home on New Years eve and trillian_stars off figure skating, I jumped at the opportunity to stop slacking for an hour. pjschnyder had me thinking about Little Red Riding Hood already and when J.R. showed up in a red dress, getting the wolf suit out of the closet seemed obvious.

And one with the new Panasonic Lumix GF-1 and the 20mm f 1.7 lens.

(#photonerd: Both of these are using a Photek Softlighter II (the giant one) and an sb800.)

Who knows what my neighbors think of me, tromping around the yard with body parts and wolves.

What do the neighbors think? Who cares when you wind up with fabulous pictures!

I think that, apart from the lovely photos, my favourite thing about this is the fact that you happen to have a wolf suit in your closet...

I love the first picture, but her left breast in the second one looks a tad strange.

Trouble with having large breasts, really - big and soft means that they'll just go all over the place with a little nudge of the arm. That's just how they look!

I could wear my bras as a hat. Seriously. Last night I sat in bed with my husband demonstrating how my new bra could be used as a hat. If you think my left breast looks a little weird in the photo above, you should have seen me in my superman pajamas with a bra on my head. :-)

The bra is too big to fit in the photo frame!

The aunt of a friend of mine used to "try on" bras at the store by putting the cup on her head. If it fit there, it fit where it needed to fit.

Or you could get one of those gas mask bras.

I am sorry if this came across as "your breasts look strange". They don't. It's just that the angle and pose combined with the corset and the choker looks strange.

Now we're playing "unintended Photoshop consequences", one of which is that things that are produced by simple lens mapping of reality get challenged (at least implicitly) as possible bad manipulations.

I'm sure your neighbors wonder how you were able to convince your friend to be out in the cold in that fabulous gown -- with a werewolf! They now have unbelievable stories to tell all their friends.

the neighbors should be thinking they are some of the luckiest people in the world. cuz they are.

not being your neighbor makes me one of the saddest people in the world. maybe it's best that i live far away though. otherwise i might be at your door several times a day going what are you doing? where is trillian? what's roswell doing? can i have some chili? who's in the rockstar hotel? what are you doing? what are you doing? what are you doing????

Really nice lighting, especially the first picture. Would love to see a formal cocktail party scene with the wolf dressed in a James Bond style dinner jacket.

These are amazing, Kyle! Thanks for taking such glorious photos of us! Who knew I would get such use out of my wedding dress. I'm going to have to show my friend Andrea (she made the skirt) these photos. I know she'll love them!

This was a lot of fun. We're happy to pop over in weird costumes for you anyday!

Oh, sure thing!

Andrea made the skirt of the dress. She's a fantastic vintage seamstress and an amazing hairdresser. Anyone who is interested can read about her work sewing vintage clothing here: http://newvintage.wordpress.com/

The corset top (which is the most comfortable corset I have ever worn in my life) was handmade for me at Delicious Corsets in Philadelphia. They can be found on the web here: http://www.deliciouscorsets.com/

Haha! I would loan them to you, if I could!

I love my body and all that good stuff, but there are seriously days when I wish I could remove my boobs and go for a run without having to wear three bras.

I absolutely know how you feel.

I was struggling getting a sports bra on for the gym as my husband walked in the other day and he looked at me. My only answer to him was, "I haz B00Bs"

The last sportbra I bought just broke on me. I bought the sturdiest looking one I could find, but apparently, it was no match for my my high intensity zombie-fighting workouts.

Actually, someone should totally design a workout around fighting monsters. I'd buy that video.

A generously-proportioned friend of mine often speaks well of a place called Title Nine for comfortable sports bras that keep everything in place, even for fuller bosoms.

"Lucky bastard has all the fun" I bet. Stunning women, wolfmen... Seriously, I bet the neighbors are jealous.

and the pictures are fun, love 'em! I love the hint of black and white striped tights in the first one.

Fantastic Pics. You live by such interesting people, after reading Blackwell's LJ, I can't wait to see what the Axelrods are up to next.

By the way, I forgot to save the PDF of Tailshaker (dumb) and now it is gone. Did someone have an issue with what you did or were we just bad?

Fully Fledged, I say.

(Link)

The Axelrods are fully fledged weirdo's and are Not To Be Trusted. All they do is play dress up, write science fiction, and trick people into watching their Freakshow. You get too close to those two, and they will drag you into their web of weirdness.

Or they might make a puppet of you. And that puppet will steal your soul.

It's happened.

Re: Fully Fledged, I say.

(Link)

It's a new year and a new decade, I could use a little weirdness. I like science fiction, freakshows are like car accidents, impossible to turn away from and my soul is fractured and hidden in the darkest corners of the world.

I have been known to become a puppet of others though.

Fun shots!

I think we need to get you a waist cinch or some other man-corset so you can run around shirtless in the cold with your insides squished like you convince your models to do. I'd donate good money to City Kitties to see a photo like that. Perhaps taken by trillian_stars while wearing a parka. And gloves. And warm boots.

heh.

Gorgeous photos, Kyle. I'd love to look out my window and see something this interesting in my neighbor's backyard -- it would be a welcome change to tall grass and empty beer cartons.

Love the red dress, but this has nothing to do with it

Hello,

first of all, I must say that I love your blog and your pictures. I got to know my writing partner through your 2xcreative project (who became sort of a best friend - sort of, because there's a minor ocean between us, heh), so I'm really, really thankful for your amazing initiative!

(The 2xcreative project is underway, in case you're curious, and we'll surely tell you about it as soon as we launch it. :)

So, the real reason I'm commenting is that I took the liberty of putting your awesome steampunk picture on my blog (http://mariblaser.blogspot.com), to make a steampunk post (http://mariblaser.blogspot.com/2010/01/steampunk-hilarities.html) prettier, heh. Of course I gave you full credit for it, but if you prefer please tell me and I'll take it off.

Thought you'd like to know, and maybe even like it?
