She’s a Maniac

Locking rhythms to the beat of her heart
Changing movement into light
She has danced into the danger zone
When the dancer becomes the dance

It can cut you like a knife, if the gift becomes the fire
On a wire between will and what will be

She’s a maniac, maniac on the floor
And she’s dancing like she’s never danced before
She’s a maniac, maniac on the floor
And she’s dancing like she’s never danced before

[Michael Sembello]

When I saw the “She’s a Maniac” gacha set from Salt & Pepper, I immediately had the pictures of one of my favourite 80s movie in mind… Flashdance!

For those who are my age.. I am sure you remember that little beauty training her ass off, sweating like she would have stood in the rain to get hired by that ballet company :p

Yes, I admit, I had to watch the movie right there again while styling the new gacha set of Salt & Pepper and I highly enjoyed it – even if I saw it like a hundred times before – Thank you Salt!

I wanted to make my own interpretation of that main character of the movie, or how I would have seen the look in my very own vision. Since I am an 80s addicted, I had to have it in black and white with some hints of red on the lips and the fingernails, the hat as well was a must 😉

First I experimented with a ballet room with lots of mirrors and what not, but then I felt that something more simple would do a better job, to have the focus on the actual look and as well the fantastic poses from Poseidon.

So I just set up a white studio with a ballet barre from Cinphul and the “BoomBox” by [Since 1975]. I rarely saw such amazing energetic poses, than the ones of Poseidon. And when I saw he had  ballet and dances moves…

Again I experienced that not only great clothing, a cool set and some good photography make a picture.. no… poses do their huge part to it as well. It is always a combination of everything in my opinion.

And it is a lot more fun to work with energetic poses… if it fits the theme than with just static photo poses. Sometimes energetic, movement poses might not work on the first view, but if you change the angle, you can have super cool pictures, or if you just use a crop 😉

To give the whole look some more personal twist, I added the “Grim” eyepatch from [sys]. I love fancy headpieces and face deco and this little piece of art is just another master piece of [sys]. All those leather bands, chains and little decorations make this eyepatch to so much more than “just” an eyepatch 😉

The “Charming” collar from Happy Undead just matched so nicely in colors, style and as well in the positioning – it nearly looked as it was made for the “She’s a maniac” gacha set!

Maybe you now have the same desire as I had to watch ‘Flashdance’ again and I would like at least to link the video of that song 😉

TUNES

EXPRESS

It’s a cold and crazy world that’s ragin’ outside
Well baby me and all my girls are bringin’ on the fire
Show a little leg, gotta shimmy your chest
It’s a life, it’s a style, it’s a need, it’s

Burlesque

E-X-P-R-E-S-S
love, sex
Ladies no regrets

Been holding down for quite some time and finally the moment’s right
I love to make the people stare
They know I got that certain savoir-faire

Fasten up
Can you imagine what would happen if I let you close enough to touch?
Step into the fantasy
You’ll never want to leave, baby let’s give it to you…Why?

It’s a passion, and emotion, it’s a fashion, Burlesque
It’ll move, goin’ through you, so do what I do, Burlesque

All ladies come put your grown up, boys throw it up if you want it
Can you feel me, can you feel it? It’s

Burlesque

I tease ’em ’til they’re on the edge
They screamin’ more for more and more they beg
I know it’s me they come to see
My pleasure brings them to their knees

Fasten up
Can you imagine what would happen if I let you close enough to touch?
Step into the fantasy
You’ll never want to leave, baby let’s give it to you…Why?

It’s a passion, and emotion, it’s a fashion, Burlesque
It’ll move, goin’ through you, so do what I do, Burlesque

All ladies, confident, flaunt it
Boys throw it up if you want it
Can you feel me, can you feel it? It’s

Burlesque

It’s a passion, and emotion, it’s a fashion, Burlesque
It will move you goin’ through you, so do what I do, Burlesque

All ladies come put your grown up, boys throw it up if you want it
Can you feel me, can you feel it? It’s Burlesque
