Got a photo shoot this Saturday for the Dragon*Con breast cancer research charity calendar. We'll be doing the group bikini/swimsuit shot and the cover shot. Have to admit to being rather anxious about the bikini one. Under most circumstances, I'm pretty comfy in front of a camera, but I've gained a few pounds (and a few years) since the last time I've shown quite so much skin on film, and I have to admit being somewhat insecure about it.
Yes, I'm vain. Glargh.
Okay, moving right along. Our marvelous photographer, Dean Ansley, has been scouting for locations for my August, "Pulp SF Space Girl," shoot. Think we might be able to use the Fernbank Science Center/Planetarium. I hope so. From the sample shots he showed me, it looks like it'll be perfect. So I got out my space girl costume last night and tried it on. I'm thinking I'd like to put a few stitches here and there to make the lay of it smoother in a couple places. And I wish I had silver go-go boots now; I think they'd look better than black ones. But then, when would I ever wear silver boots again?
And finally, the calendar now has a website, although there's nothing on it currently except for a flash slide show of some of the promo shots:
The organizers of the Launch Pad workshop put together an email list so all the attendees can communicate and introduce each other beforehand. I was delighted to learn that Josepha Sherman, who I've met and been on panels with at Dragon*Con, will be one of my workshop-mates. I lubs Josepha and am looking forward to getting to hang with her in Wyoming. And I had a major fangirl moment when I discovered that Vonda N. McIntyre will also be a fellow Launchpadee. I'm debating whether I should bring my copy of Dreamsnake to Wyoming and ask her to sign it, or if that would just be too squeeing fangirl. Hee!
