Wow, yo. Genderbending Spike=superhot. And Amber Benson is always a godess, but you did amazing things with that.

YAY! i'm so glad you liked him!! i've been looking for really excellent pictures of crossdressing men for a while, and this was the first that i'd found that was really in the style i was looking for. And you liked the AB too - she's fabulous, and deserves more fabulous dresses to be in.

(scowl) It's like Ewan McGregor -- bastard looks better in makeup and high heels than I do.

Yes your manips are so cool they make me jealous. :-D

He looks way better than me too, darling. We can either burn them in effigy or imagine them in more dresses - which is probably a decent revenge.

And thanks for the lovely manipping feedback - it's been the only thing i've been super inspired about lately - good to know i'm doing something right!

Wow, the one of Tara is superhot! And the dress? To. Die. For. Wow. So pretty!

Also, I like how the Spike one is done, it looks supersmooth and like it is an actual photo (but I still don't "get" the man+dress=hot thing.)
my monkied brain: giles - laugh...katekat1010 on May 22nd, 2007 07:14 pm (UTC)
I WANT Tara's dress! I also want a body that will fit into that dress, but that's another matter. The secret of the photos? i've been haunting websites that post of cool fashioin photography - it's totally the key to success.

And the Spike in a dress i did as a total joke for EB... i think it's silly too, but i like the feet in the pic. good feet are cute.

i'm still looking for authors for you darling - sorry i'm not faster, but i hope to come up with something soon!

and thanks for the lovely feedback!

I am in love with her dress. Totally and completely without question. Fashion websites are fertile grounds, then, for prettifulness! But also greed and envy!

Ah, I was kinda hoping someone could explain it to me. Because all I can think of is "man in a dress looks REALLY silly." *shrugs* Ah well! (Also I don't 'get' the feet thing. Feet are gross. Full stop!)

Don't worry about the citations if you can't get 'em or it's a fuss hon. I guess it is MY work, so I should be the one whose eyeballs are bleeding, not yours. :( ;)

Also, usually I do this before but today for some reason I didn't - the Tara-in-the-pretty-dress looks SO MUCH BETTER than angry-looking-model-in-the-pretty-dress! *Snerk* It made me giggle!
my monkied brainkatekat1010 on May 22nd, 2007 07:31 pm (UTC)
*grin* yay! i happen to agree with you - part of the reason why i picked it to manip - cuz the original girl was just ... tooo ookie :D

These are gorgeous and so cool! I really, really like the Spike one. With that make-up he really fits perfectly in that dress and into that image. Very arty! :D
my monkied brain: You Rockkatekat1010 on May 22nd, 2007 07:16 pm (UTC)
Thank you darling! As i was saying above, my new fav. sources are fashion photography (i can get lazier and they're all still looking cool). :D

ooooo I'm loving both of these(oddly enough, my brain accepts Spike in that dress as completely normal. Means you did great!;)

And Tara looks stunning! You're not the only one who loves fancy dresses. Been searching around myself for some bases, but not that easy to dig up.
my monkied brain: spike - deliciouskatekat1010 on January 10th, 2008 03:11 pm (UTC)
*grin* thank you! And I think Spike is definitely the most able to be comfortable in a dress out of all the men in the buffyverse (he'd carry it off with aplomb)

oh, and check out foto_decadent for bases - although a lot of the postings have models whose faces are in the *wrong* position, there are usually some gems that are irresistible and provocative. Lately it's been my resource of choice for manip bases.

Thanks so much for the tip, I'll definately check it out ::)
