Buh Bye Old Year

I was just thinking about the year that's just coming to the end. It was pretty crappy year and pretty much everything sucked except for the photoshoots! :) And modelling is one thing that has made me sooo happy during 2011. I did some amazing photoshoots with old and new photographers and I feel as though I've really grown as a model. :)

Even though the end of this year has been quiet and I haven't done many photoshoots, I got plans with a couple of photographers for the near future! So Jodie keeps on modelling, don't you worry! :D Also, I guess I'm sort of going to be represented by an agency soon. Hope that brings new work.

Also I love how this blog has developed and how I got so many readers and page views and the wonderful comments I get from you! <3

I'm going to add here a pic from weheartit (here), it has no fireworks, cos I don't like them at all. Instead there is a big city - which is something I'd love to find myself in one day. Perhaps year 2012...

Happy New Year my dear followers! ^^

Change on the layout

Heyyyy I made the blog a bit wider so I can post bigger pics and so that you don'tnecessarily need to click them to see them bigger. How you like it? I changed the pics in the newest posts bigger.. is it better or not for a reader/viewer?

Updating portfolio - help needed

What I hate with passion: updating my portfolio. What to take out and what to add. I'm talking about my Modelm Mayhem port here.

No I need you help! Not just want, you see, but need.

First of all, any ideas what to throw away from my port? In order to add new stuff there I need to get rid of the older ones. There's a limit to the number of pics there. The ones you possibly cannot see (unless you got profile there as well) are nude and you don't need to worry about those. :D

Second which of these pics on this post should I add there? I love them both so much, just can't decide. I'm talking about the girly little black dress -pics by Marko.

Also I got so many pics from the photoshoot with Niko (the link opens up all posts tagged with Niko ie. all posts with his name tagged) earlier that I'm having serious trouble... O.O Not to mention the Latex Gone Golfing -shoot with Markus (don't forget the first part of the series either)!

So if you can help me, I'd be happy! ^^

My dream photoshoot?

I got a question from the photographer Markus. :) He writes:
Not really sure if you have covered this already, but what if you shared us a thought or two on subject: "My dream shoot"? So, what would a photo shoot be like if you was the mastermind? You can give some general ideas ("I would like to be shot in space" ;)) or some very detailed stuff (describing everything from the location to make up and all the things in between). I'm in impression most of the corgeous settings and ideas implemented in your photos are works of the photographers' twisted minds. I might be wrong, though... :)
I actually answered this some time ago also on Formspring! Here's what I said:
A well known skilled photographer, super skilled make up artist and hair stylist and wardrobe assistant and all that. Plus I'd get paid. Plus the pics were for some rad magazine. I'd have the most amazing look and the photographer was an awesome person and we'd get along super well and the pics would end up being just ah-ma-zing! :D Yeah.. something according to those lines. :)
The photos could be for some awesome magazine or/and for some awesome campaign. A little couture or editorial. Nothing too boring or straightforward commercial.

Hmm, is that too boring and too vague? Isn't that what every model wishes for? :D Also, I'd love to try underwater modelling, since water has always been sort of my element (as a kid I was dreaming of being a mermaid, and loved to dive deep into the green lake, it was soooo beautiful). I know it would be challenging and I might suck at it, but still, I'd love to try. :D

Ohmigoosh, there must be gazillions of things I'd love to do or at least try! :)

And yes, most of the ideas on my photos are those of the photographers'. Usually the "idea" behind the shoot is  a location and outfit and that's it. I guess it's sort of my job to deliver the rest. :D

These pics are from our recent photoshoot with Marko Saari in Tikkurila.

Things you can do with a sweater

On an earlier post I asked you to give me suggestions on topics what to write and to ask me questions on Formspring. Thanks to those who did! :) Lately I've been on a less of a chatty mood and I've been slow answering on Formspring and haven't reacted to questions here either. :P Sorry! I will get back to those as soon as I get a chance.

Here are again couple of pics from our shoot with Marko Saari. The shirt and the sweater are my friend Liisa's (who gueststars on the making of pic below). The previous ones from the same photoshoot here.

Girly lady in the little black dress

A couple of weeks ago I had a shoot with Marko Saari. We've worked together before - nearly two years ago! So, about time to create some magic together. I was lucky I stayed at my friend Liisa's place, cos she's got the most amazing wardrobe! The amount of the dresses.. wow. :D And it's super awesome that we're nearly the same size. So, my wardrobe assistant on this shoot was Liisa Wiik. Aaaand I'm definately considering using her again for these purposes... ;) Her style is so different from mine, so it's great for photoshoots to have something completely different!

Here are a couple pics from the shoot. More coming for sure.

I'm kinda doing the same thing on these both, but then again, in completely different ways.. I thought should I post only one or the other, but decided to post them both, cos I couldn't decide.

(c) Marko Saari 2011

I love love love that cute dress! And it made me feel totally girly and glamorous.

When I opened the file for the pic below my mouth blew open and I was like "What is that? Who is taht gorgeous woman there?!" So yeah, I'm happy with the photoshoot with Marko. :D

Three things + one

 Hey my darling Followers,

(Thing no 1) no one has asked me anything on Formspring for a long time! So please do so! :) There's a box there on the right just below the picture, where you can write your question.. theeeere. ->

The answer will show up on Formspring. So check it there. And plz, no more latex-related questions. :P

(c) Niko Rakkolainen 2011, styling&MUA Riikka Satama
(Thing Two) Also it is highly recommended (by yours truly of course;D) to leave comments here on the blog! I get a notification every time someone leaves a comment, so I won't miss the comments on older posts either.

(c) Niko Rakkolainen 2011, styling&MUA Riikka Satama

(Third thingy) I'd also be reeeeally happy if you gave me some hints on blogs that I could follow. Generally I'm interested in other models and photographers, stylists, MUAs etc modelling related stuff. I've recently added some new blogs I follow on the list at the bottom of the right side bar. :) Check them out - and share your favourite blogs with me! :)

(+1) If you have any ideas about what I should discuss here, feel free to share your ideas! :)

..as in make up. Mwhahaa! Gotcha, all you who type Jodie nude on google! ;D

Last weekend I went to the capitol city again. I love Helsinki. So much going on down there. And so many photographers.

I shot for the first time with Niko Rakkolainen. My make up, hair and wardrobe were taken care of by lovely Riikka Satama.  I lllllove the make up and it was wonderful how Riikka was so enthusiastic about her work! ^^ Must say, I'm pretty happy with them both! :)

In the three hours I spent at the shoot we did a couple more looks. I'll post them later.

Gone golfing pt II

Here we go, the promised golf set. The first pics I posted here were more like a model posing on a mini golf course, but these are more like a series. You can check the whole 10 picture set on Markus' web site here! :)

Yet unpublished..

I found some unpublished pics from last summer on my computer.. thought it'd be a good time to share, cos it'll be a while I get new ones. Well, I should get more latex-golf pics next week though. :) But next weekend I'm going to Helsinki to meet friends and, surprise surprise, do two or three shoots - most likely three. Yippee, I'm soooo loving this again right now. How I wish I could just live on modelling. *sigh*

And looking at these pics how I wish it was summer again. *sigh*

Gone golfing pt. I

Yesterday we did a photoshoot with Markus. There was a pretty friggin cold wind. Luckily we also had a bit of sun so it gave me a little more time not to freeze. Also I was made some excellent tea by his wife and I got to warm up at their place when I got too cold. ^^ Latex, my friends, does not warm an awful lot.

(c) Markus Lehto 2011

The dress is by Latex by Tiina Rikala and you've seen it before here on the pics by Sami Maanpää. The gloves are just basic latex gloves. We were hoping to get latex socks as well, but that didn't work out after all. And we needed to hurry with the photoshoot, cos it sure ain't getting any warmer!

I've had a couple of questions about latex on Formspring - which I find kind a funny, cos latex modelling really is not that big part of my modelling! Anyway I feel like there's a need to explain my realitionship with latex.

First of all, I wouldn't call it a fetish (and I'm not the kind of person who thinks fetishes are a bad thing and gross and perverse). I love the latex outfits I have thou. But I love them as I love any well tailored piece ofclothing. I love what Tiina does with latex! I also like the shiny look of latex. I even follow a blog that some of you might enjoy as well: HMSlatex untamed. But still, latex is "just" another material that you can use to be creative. I don't watch the pics and get aroused, no. What I see is innovation and creativity and even some rule breaking.

In fact, I find latex a bit difficult to wear and take care of. I'm sure those questions are of no importance to those who really love the material, but for me it feels a bit like too much trouble. O.O But as said, if one really is into latex, then these things won't be an issue. :)

However, getting dressed in latex is not a "necessary evil" as an Anonymous put it on Formspring. If it were, I would not be doing the shoots and shows in latex. It is, for me, slightly uncomfortable at times, but hey, the clothes  are sexy and you only get to wear stuff like that so often! :)

Now, what do you think of the pics? :)

Edit: You can check the part 2 here. :)

Purple latex

A couple of weeks ago we did a roadtrip in my friends' van to Tampere to do a latex show with Tiina Rikala in Tampere Fetish Factory -event. It was fun as always. :D Tiina often has her friends over to do the show and I must say she sure has a good taste in friends. :D I love meeting new people and having fun after the show at the party. Tiina's shows are also never (at least when I've been there) the usual kin of runway-shows, but involve a plot and some sort of storyline. This time we had a sircus theme going on with ringmaster leading the show, clown in a straitjacket on a wheelchair dancing with a more cheerful n' cute clown, lion tamer - who didn't manage to tame the lioness all that well - and a sexy burlesque finale. My role with another girl was to be some kind of a doll or circus princess (no brains lookin cute and waving a rhythmic gymnastics ribbon) :D hehee. I guess if it as possible we'd danced on a rope, but obviously not, so we had the ribbons instead. I wish I had pictures of the whole group, but I only got some of me taken in studio setting - and sadly without the awesome ribbon. :( Luckily I got to keep the ribbon. It's so much fun! :D

Yeah yeah, blaablaa, gimme the pics already! These are pretty much un-edited raw pics taken by the owner of the van and fellow model of the show, the lion tamer (the lion being his girlfriend), Sami Maanpää (his Flickr). Oh btw, he's also the dude that cuts my hair. :D A multitalent I guess (also a musician, here's his band!). x)

(c) Sami Maanpää 2011
We took these pics in a bit of a hurry. It's too bad we never have the proper time to do the photoshoot. It's always so hectic before the show: everybody getting dressed, doing hair and make up to themselves and to eachother.. I did my make up myself. Tiina gave me the huge eyelashes and attached some rhinestones to my temples. I love the dress. I love purple and the cut is so awesome!

Silent street at night

Or not so silent afer all. Anyway, we were shooting with Sami - needed to wait for the perfect rainy, but not too rainy, weather. Here are some samples in the form of making of pics and two three final end products. More to come.

Antti was assisting and took photographs while we were shooting with Sami. Antti's web page here.

Some passers by may have gotten a story to take home as they were driving past. A half nekkid lady with two dudes shooting her in her underwear and a jacket.. O.O OMG!

(c) Sami Saarenpää 2011
We had to shoot really quick and then jump out of the street so as not to get hit by cars. The photographer now really needed to guide the model to save her from being hit by a car! Hah! We were shooting so that the cars were coming behind me, so it was a bit difficult to concentrate at times. Also the trafiic that was pretty heavy at times didn't helt either. Not to mention the light rain and the cold wind. <3 Gotta luv these outdoor shoots! x) Hehee.

Okay, one more, and we'll wait to get more pics from Sami. :D

(c) Sami Saarenpää 2011
Edit: I only just now noticed (it's 23rd) that I had accidentally put a making of -pic here as the last one. Now it's the one it's supposed to be! :)

Photoshoot in the woods

(c) Larso Johnson 2011

Remember I went to Helsinki a while back to do photoshoots? This was one of them. Went to Espoo to shoot with Lars Johnson.

(c) Lars Johnson 2011

Aaaand this is what came out of it. Feel the 80s? I think it's the combo of my hair, fish net and beads/pearls whatever they are:D. Oh by the way, thanks Jeve, for lending the pearls. :) (Lend, borrow..?)

(c) Lars Johnson 2011

Check out Lars's work here on his web site.

(c) Lars Johnson 2011

Tomorrow I'm heading to Tampere Fetish Factory to do another Latex by Tiina Rikala show. :) I've been trying to learn to use the rhythmic gymnastics ribbon lately.. ;) We'll see how that turns out in the show Circue du Decadence. Pics coming of course. Hopefully of the show as well.
