paintings of the pole: volume REAL LIFE

i've been sitting on these for ages because.. well, i'm still not ENTIRELY sure i should be posting these on the Internet Of Foreverness and all, but fuck it. i'm pretty proud of them.

remember how maaaaany moons ago, i was prepping for a pole photo shoot? wherein i got 15 minutes to try out my best tricks while simultaneously trying not to look like an idiot? (it turns out i was not wrong to be worried about the looking-like-an-idiot part, incidentally. the incredibly awesome, super sweet photog - also a pole student - kept alternatingly chiding me to smile, then suggesting i try and relax my face from the rictus-grin i kept plastering on my face.)

remember this, from my post about trying to learn to backdrop?
well check it out! LIVE AND IN PERSON!
or, this, from the post about a no-hands descending angel?
with REAL SKIN holding me up this time!
(that one actually looks considerably better in person, huh? it's pretty hard to draw these things. am not an effective arteest.)

these ones i don't have ms paint replicas of :) but they're fun. helicopter:
uh... crap. i can never remember the name of this one. jasmine, i think?
and finally one of my favorites, gemini:
so... that happened. everyone promise to never send this post to my dad.

Outstanding. You look awesome, and I am so, so impressed.

Shelly said...

WOW. You look awesome.

I'd say you look like a professional stripper, but I don't think that sounds like a compliment. : )

Tyler said...

Wow, the photos came out so well!! Great job, you worked really hard for those. Thanks for sharing!

Nik-Nak said...

I am SO jealous! You look great and that looks like so much fun! I would love to be able to do that. (AWESOME stripper shoes by the way)

Raven said...

RAWR! You look AMAZING! I would totally tip you for that pole work!

Pickles and Dimes said...

These are so beautiful and glamorous! I am super impressed by your athletic prowess and gracefulness.

Do you watch "America's Got Talent?" There's a male pole dancer and he is fantastic.

missris said...

You look AMAZING in these photos. I'm so impressed!

Liebchen said...

Omg - you look amazing! I'm so impressed! I can't even imagine the strength it takes to hang onto a pole like that.

Actually, I can. And that's probably why I don't try the fancy stuff.

Congrats!

Hotch Potchery said...

Ditto what Swistle said, those were my exact out loud words. You look fantastic!! That is some bad ass stuff.

Sizzle said...

Lady, these are HAWT. I am so impressed with your pole prowess.

Suburban Sweetheart said...

Oh my gosh, THESE ARE OF YOU. I had to read through twice to get that. The first time, I was all, "Alice Google a pole dancer who looks AWESOME." Wow. These are... awesome. You are a superhero.

Holy shit. AWESOME.

Nilsa @ SoMi Speaks said...

Why bother sending this post to your dad when we can make a slideshow out of it for your (future) wedding?!? bwahahahah.

Great shots, btw!

KT said...

Sexay lady

artemisia said...

AWESOME! They exude strength and grace. I LOVE IT.

leafprobably said...

Oh my god that's amazing!! I desperately want to sign up for classes now. Only the only place that does regular classes here is at the strip club (Like, actually) and I think that sends the wrong message.

Also? I have a small issue where I hate hanging upside down. Or supporting my body-weight on small patches of skin... Actually maybe I'll stick to taekwon do, and leave the pole dancing to you talented ladies who CAN hang upside down in owie-kind-of-ways.
