FROM SASSY TO ELEGANT

MyraSassyChick1

When a friend who is a profoundly excellent yoga teacher asked us to do some promotional shots for her we jumped at the chance…

MyraSassyChick2

Starting with a nice look for a typical day out with the girls we encouraged her to find her sassy style. She has a great love for Rock music and following the local music scene so we knew she had it within her to take a simple dress to a new level.

Of course it alway helps if one is fit and flexible to strike a number of poses easily, with a natural flow and elegance.

Through our pre shoot discussion we had found that she is an aspiring author an decided to flip her look to reflect how a successful woman might dress for a cocktail reception for her newest book deal.

She is such a vivacious person and it is so easy to make her chuckle, so we had to pause frequently to regain composure.

MyraElegant3

Without a doubt, she has all the right attributes to kill it everytime, her warmth and personality shining through.

In each set she is wearing simple barely black pantyhose to complement her outfits that give a nice elegant line. We provided the cocktail dress and accessories for the evening wear shoot and the first green two piece was the models own.

We revel in helping people achieve a look that reflects their personality and makes their image ‘pop’. Its so important these days in the realms of intense social media to have a look for the moment or a look for an emotion to keep your offerings fresh and engaging.

SHINY DRAGON’S WINGS

Dragon Lady

Sometimes, a model comes into our lives like a whirling dervish, full of enthusiasm and raring to shoot something new and exciting. Cue a well known international Nylon model Goddess Gin.

Dragon Lady

Pass her in the street and a glance, and double take, might have you reeling thinking you almost bumped into well known celebrity Pamela Anderson!

Dragon Lady

So we had been lent an awesome pair of leather formed dragon’s wings that the maker wanted shooting stylistically in a number of ways. Goddess Gin jumped at the opportunity to cavort around the hi key set up showing off her prowess as a female predator and dragon lady.

Dragon Lady, Dragon Lady

As a product, the wings were to retail for a couple of thousand pounds, and we felt highly privileged to shoot such a unique item. One can see the way the light catches them and shows off the amazing iridescent colour way that was crafted across the formed material.

Dragon Lady

All in all, it was an amazing day, and we were very fired up to shoot Goddess Gin in some of our finest nylon.

Dragon Lady

Then like a puff of smoke she was gone…

An amazing lady, and amazing costume that would be a showstopper at any cosplay event. We had the wings long enough to shoot two young ladies in an Angel au Demon style that was heavily laced with a unique take on ripped pantyhose. Watch this space for more on this later.

If you have something unique and creative you would like to shoot then do drop us a line through the website. we revel in making your products positively Rock!

STEAMPUNK/EDWARDIAN GOTHIC

We are not quite sure how to label this post, but whatever the title the shoot made for an intriguing style…The tiddly hat worn atop the models head is often referred to as a ‘Fascinator’…

The model had the basic Bodice and lace dress to which we added the finishing touches. Of course ladies would not have worn nylon in those days, but the model had some delightful ink to display on her legs that we wanted to show through, so transparent shiny pantyhose were the order of the day.

Also we showcased one of our favourite props here. An original Jean Paul Gaultier Rubber Umbrella with ornate handle, which is currently on sale on eBay.

We also employed a combination of studio lamps punching light into the scene and natural light as seen in the shot above, whilst partaking of afternoon tea.

We had many bluebells growing in our garden and so found it appropriate to make up a little seasonal bouquet to complement her intricate make up.

We would like to point out that it is illegal in the UK to pick bluebells in the wild…so do take heed as there is a hefty fine if you are caught doing this.

Next accoutrement was a fine ebony and alpaca silver Gentleman’s walking cane. It is worth noting that whilst an expensive item, alpaca silver forming the handle at the top of the cane does not in fact contain any real silver. It is an alloy of copper, zinc and nickel that mimics silver.

Finally, our old shed, that we kept our lawn mower and other garden equipment in, fell down as the roundels of wood supporting its corners had rotted through. The Tin Roof provided to final piece of the puzzle for a different urban backdrop…

PICNIC TIME…

We are fast approaching that time of year where the temperature rises to a point that it is possible to get outside and dine ‘al-fresco’.

LadiesWhoLunch

What better way is there, than to pack a hamper full of goodies and bring along a bottle of your favourite Fizz?

LadiesWhoLunch-2

To make seating comfortable and dry we always recommend bringing a floor mat, preferably with a waterproof membrane on one side. The more decorative the better in order to set the right scene.

LadiesWhoLunch-3

Of course, its always difficult to know what to wear for such and occasion. Our ladies on this particular day decided to dress up, as opposed to down in some suitable fetish attire.

LadiesWhoLunch-4

Crossing a lawn in ultra high heels can always pose a challenge! Luckily they had me on hand so they could cross wearing slippers and then exchange those for the heels when in place. A top tip for those who want to avoid clumps of mud stuck to the heels making it look somewhat grubby, by comparison.

Naturally, fine seamed stockings are essential for a wholly decadent expose.

LadiesWhoLunch-5

It wasn’t long before Destiny delved into her more Dominant persona and had our guest on her knees and ready to obey. What a persuasive young lady she is!

LadiesWhoLunch-6

To work off the calories from all the goodies consumed they then vacate to our tree area where destiny demonstrated the first exercise of this session, a standing push up or bench press…

Its amazing what you can get up to in an afternoon, and how the Sun and Wine turn your mind into a haze. We’ll let you imagine how this lovely little country soiree panned out…

THE END OF AN ERA…

We’ve had a You Tube Page of the same name, ‘Exquisite Nylon’, for around four years now…

The first channel iteration had another name. Somebody, we don’t know exactly who, but we have our suspicions, reported the channel 3 times  and it was deleted from existence. A lot of work and time and effort was wasted!

Next came the second iteration, and within the first year and a half we saw the channel grow to an all time high of 8,500 views per day with a subscriber base exceeding 7,000 people.

From time to time, we are shown success stories of people having their video’s going viral on You Tube an it being deemed that they made hundreds of thousands pounds almost in an instant. We suggest you view these stories with some degree of scepticism. The story is the carrot that is put out to get people creating fresh content that You Tube can use for free to peddle their wares daily…

In reality,a good few of our video clips exceeded 500,000 hits, and were earning some money. It is fair to say, that for the duration of the channels existence we have never earned more than about £20 per month. Barely enough to pay our broadband bill, and certainly nowhere near enough to cover our production costs of making unique content for public consumption. Some of the popular videos would build up to 500,000 hits or so and then mysteriously just be taken out of monetisation…

So cue this last weekend, around 16th April 2016. We had spent the best part of the previous week remastering ten to fifteen videos that we had run on the channel before and uploaded them. We sent out a global email to all our subscribers telling them we were firing the channel up again. We saw the daily views average rise from around 400 to nearly 7,000. Then,…

BOOM!!!

Somebody reported a video of a guy cleaning our stairs as inappropriate and it was taken down. This video had previously drawn over 500,000 hits without a problem. Five of our other videos were deemed as only suitable for adults and taken out of monetisation…

We scan You Tube daily and come across all kinds of inappropriate content that is far more adult than anything we have rigorously produced to sit within the boundaries of tasteful provocative tease.

The days of a You Tube dream are long gone…

We totally agree with suitable censorship and protecting sensitive people and minors from seeing inappropriate content. However…

The biggest issue with You Tube/Google is that there is no platform to discuss issues with a live real person. They do what ever they want and you just have to put up with it! They can take your content out of monetisation, but will still run their adds on that content and earn money on it themselves. This is morally wrong and bad business practice.

There is no safety net to protect a creator studio from internet trolls who revel in destroying creative work and endeavours, because they have nothing useful to put into society themselves, and prefer to put jealous malice into play to serve their own sick ‘intellectual pygmy’ type minds.

The net result is that we have taken all our You Tubes videos down, bar the Trailer. You may consider we are like a child throwing all their toys out of the pram! And to an extent you are right we are unhappy with the situation. However, thinking of Einstein’s quote that a true sign of madness is to try something and if it doesn’t work to keep on doing the same thing!

Now is the time to consider something different…

We apologise to all our You Tube fans and subscribers. We know from your comments that you liked what we produced very much. We will be back in the coming months with a subscriber channel on a different platform.

Watch this Space!

We welcome any comments you may have on this matter or ideas of best way to move forward….

BUILDERS LIGHTS

Esperanza

Whilst we can extol the virtues of having now invested in more than £2,000 worth of professional lighting, we would like to say that is was not always like this…

Our early foray into shooting Pin Up and Burlesque styles had us utilise a set of double Builders lights, on a tripod, from a Hardware outlet that cost us around £25.

The Lights ran very hot and so gave little scope for modification or control. We did, however, manage to rig a sort of diffuser in front of them to avoid really harsh shadows.

Needless to say this was one of the few shoots we have done where the model, clearly used to more professional set ups, was clearly not impressed. Despite her initial ice cool reception she did dig deep to work and produce some fine poses.

The video below does much more justice to the shoot and just shows how with a little ingenuity one can ‘beef up’ the whole output to represent something cool and worthwhile.

All we say to budding creatives. Go with the flow, work within the means of what you can afford, but above all get out there and Just Do It! You will be amazed at what you can create.

 

SAWADEE KA OR ‘THAI FOR TWO’

Its not everyday we are delighted by the presence of two ladies from our local Thai community to come and shoot some fashion styles with us…

We started with some traditional Thai garb, and then moved on to something a little more risqué…

It was great to see them enjoying themselves as they confessed to usually being very camera shy and body conscious

We think our relaxed style helped them get into the mood off being more playful and at ease and they just kept on smiling throughout.

It was great to see just how well shiny nylon was complemented by their skin colour really bringing out a great contrast and shine.

They did comment that often back home in Thailand the weather is too warm where they live to wear nylon so it is not that common, unless going out to a special function in the evening when it gets a little chilly.

They concluded that they felt very feminine throughout the shoot and we believe we have some new converts to nylon. All that remains to be said, Job well done! And it is worthy of note that this images are straight out of the camera without even a first pass edit in Lightroom, so you can see the level we achieve from the outset.

Do drop us a line if you would like something shoot for posterity? Or know a friend or family member who could benefit from our services?

RETRO LEG LOVE

You may or may not remember the old style ladies lingerie shops that used to display oodles of foundation wear and girdles and more often than not had upturned mannequin legs in the window adorned with the finest seamed stockings…

Well if you didn’t here is an example. Our fabulous model, got right into the theme of the shoot and when asked to show her appreciation for the inanimate stockinged leg showed her appreciation with her tongue. Cheeky Girl!

But after all, isn’t that the essence of old style Pin Up shoots? A sassy style and cheekiness go hand in hand with that era where sexuality exuded an innocent naivety sadly lacking in our more overt modern times.

Mistress PussyKat, understands the genre of Burlesque very well and knows that the whole point is to use her full repertoire of skills to tease the weaker sex into a state of complete acquiescence to the power of the feminine form. Whether it be an adjustment of her stocking tops, or a twirling of her pastie tassels, each delicate movement adds to the next in achieving the desired goal.

Mistress Pussycat

This, ‘you can look, but you dare not touch! style can be seen at many of the Burlesque revival shows that have become popular in underground subculture of late, and has even broken into the mainstream with the relentless promotion by top stars like Dita von Tease.

The other point of this style is a celebration of real women. Yes that’s right, women with a bit of meat of them, women unabashed and unafraid to share their buxom and very beautiful nature with you. Almost, the antithesis of what the global advertising industry pumps at us all daily of stick thin, anorexic almost ‘junkie style’ deities, known as models, who survive on a lettuce leaf for sustenance.

Yes its a Renaissance for all women (well with the exception of carpet munchin’ feminists perhaps!!!) And yes this article does not lie within the boundaries of ‘so called’ modern political correctness, but that after all is a concept designed to strip you of your sense of self and individuality. We welcome those of you who do appreciate the finer nuances of life’s rich pattern and take this text with the tongue in cheek style it is intended.

RETRO TAN FF NYLONS

As if you hadn’t seen enough nylons in this portal, here we are bringing you yet more. A little fuzzy just the the golden days of VHS, this clip was found out there in hyperspace begging to be shared.

I all honesty we never tire of seeing Fully fashioned Nylons, as they are such a rarity nowadays. Unless your Wife or Girlfriend wears them as a treat for you, and reveals in the gawping attention of other admirers…
