Recently I had the opportunity to work with French Chris on a rope shoot, which I was very excited about since rope is something I have been enjoying for quite a while in my personal life and I’d been wanting to do some modeling with it. Sure, that brings up the inevitable “what if I get really, really horny during this shoot?” thoughts, but I can totally deal with that by now.
What I did not think about was, “What if a small appliance eats my hair just when I am trying to get pretty?”
Well, I should have been worried! This hotel hair dryer was the culprit:
There I was, just innocently drying my hair after a nice shower the morning of the shoot. Then, my hair was being pulled – and not in a fun way – as the hair dryer crept closer to my scalp. I yelped, as you do when you are surprised by an attack appliance, and switched it off. Master had to come cut me free with His utility knife.
This is not the first time I have had an unfortunate pre-shoot incident. One time, the night before a shoot one of my kitties jumped on my face (all the cat people reading this are nodding and chuckling, while all the non-cat people are thinking, “how does that even happen?”) and left a long scratch right down my nose. I had an awesome shoot. Another time, a houseguest overstayed their welcome and I got about two hours of sleep the night before a shoot, and that shoot also went quite well.
So by now, I am like, “Bring it on, unlikely yet minor physical mishaps! You will only make me stronger!”
French Chris was just great to work with. And he is legitimately French, with the accent and everything. My friend and co-model Solestria was there, and although this was our first time working together we clicked right away, so there was good shoot chemistry all around.
When I got the pictures back I felt like the locks of hair I sacrificed were a worthy price to pay indeed.
