This was a very enjoyable and productive shoot with the lovely Chelskii and waist.it regular, Laura Toy. The idea was that the girls would use a mixture of corsetry, deportment and exercise to shape and sculpt each other figures into that classic hourglass vintage shape, that we admire so much here @waist.it.
Chelskii has a delightfully fresh, natural, “girl next door” look, with her blonde hair and big blue eyes. She also has a figure that responds beautifully to old style foundationwear and corsetry, making her perfect for vintage work. And even better, she has absolutely no tattoos! Not even a small one!
Chelskii is also a very level-headed, determined and hard-working sort of girl. She sailed through our six hour shoot with ease. As well as being her first shoot with me. it was also her first shoot with another model. And she could not have worked with anyone better than our Laura.
Laura hails all the way from Beijing and like Chelskii, she has a delightfully “squeezy” little figure that simply begs to be sculpted, girdled and corsetted. She also has a cheeky little smile that compliments this vintage/pinup imagery beautifully. Laura is currently a fashion student in Portsmouth and from what we have seen of her so far, she very much enjoys the vintage/pinup genre
Figure forming fun
They supervised and assisted each other, copying poses, doing old style fitness and deportment exercises, lacing up corsets, flattening tummies nipping in waists and generally helping each other achieve that vintage hourglass shape. Chelskii and Laura immediately took to working with each other, and went about the shoot in a true spirit of friendship and cooperation. The shoot had a wonderful vibe and I am delighted with the results. All in all, Chelskii and Laura are delightful and I very much look forward to working with them again.
