Frequently asked questions

Where did you get that Dress?
You can see my costumes list here fav.me/d3w187x

What Are you terms of use?
You can see my full terms here fav.me/d3zp3gi

Can I make a Request?
You can see my terms of requests here fav.me/d3xid8m

Why do you charge for Some stock?
Stock is expensive to create so I counter some of that expense by charging for some stock. Some of my dresses put me out hundreds of dollars! I also offer Exclusives to give artists stock that not everyone will have. The stock I feel could be easily abused I only offer as exclusives to control who uses the image.

If stock is so expensive why don't you buy cheaper clothing?
A dress that cost $300 dollars will last longer, look better, and make the stock unique. A halloween costume, while fun to look at, can not stand up against a work of wearable art. Halloween costumes can also look cheap and unauthentic as far as period styles go.

What equipment do you use?
You can see my studio and my room :) here vimeo.com/46995474

I have been asked a few times why the pin up photos are not "free", and I want to make it known in a journal so it's out for everyone to see.

I make pin up pictures, as well as any potentially sexy images, exclusive, because of the abuse of my stock by members of DA and off site traffic. Pin up is fun and sweet, but it can also be sexualized. I am generally showing some form of under garment or lots of skin, and lets be honest that leaves the images just asking to be abused. There are a lot of people who "collect" certain types of images on DA to satisfy their sexual urges, and I want to try and limit my images from being downloaded for this type of purpose. I post stock for people to make art, not to be collected because some person likes my butt.  

I am offering Pin up stock for $1 to $2.50 an image, which is more then reasonable considering the images I post on istock start at $6 for a small image and up to $19 for a full sized image. Charging for the stock helps prevent people from downloading the image just to download it, and helps me control how the images are being used. It also helps support my site so that I can provide free stock. 

Consider this... I have literally had people photoshop me next to a naked man with an erection, and the stock image they used was me in a rococo dress fully covered. Now, imagine what could be done with an image of me in underwear….not exactly how I want to be betrayed on the internet. I have already had to squash rumors in my home town, because it got around that I "take pictures of myself for the internet"and apparently that meant I did playboy. I literally had guys, who made fun of me in high school, ask me for "pictures" because they heard I took pictures of myself.** Not exactly fun for me especially in a small town where people talk. I literally am almost afraid to tell people about what I do on DA, because if I don't explain it right and in detail it comes off badly and they give me this look like you take "pictures" of your self……Basically, I don't want  rumors to get any type of hold just because some sleazy jerk decided to "collect" my images in folders called "nice ass". 

Long story short they are exclusive to protect me and my reputation in the real world. I would appreciate it if that would be respected, and for people to stop whining that something isn't free. If you respect my work and the stock pictures I provide then you won't mind supporting me by buying a image or two. Especially, if they are fun pin up pictures. ;)

**I really felt like going along with them, and then sending them a picture of me in historical garb. Then pretend to be naive about what they meant by "pictures" lol.
