Leather and Red Hair – Eclectic Corner #2

This week I was challenged by the lovely lady over at Eclectic odds n sods to take part in one of her photography challenges. I am sad to say that it took me a bit to figure out what picture to use. I haven’t finished switching over to my newer camera phone-thing so any new pictures are horribly blurry, so I’ve been looking through my older ones.

This was a costume I created for a character several years ago. My hair is red using Kool-aid to temporarily dye it. I tasted strawberries for weeks even after washing it out of my hair.

The prompt for this photo challenge was the following:


β€œThe exotic and the erotic ideals go hand in hand, and this fact also contributes another proof of a more or less obvious truth – that is, that a love of the exotic is usually an imaginative projection of a sexual desire.”
― Mario Praz, The Romantic Agony

I’m afraid the other things I could think of I didn’t have pictures of nor was I able to take one with my scratched lens that looked to fit the prompt. Then I found this and remembered the leather jacket that I’d borrowed from my sister and the thick red hair that I had for a time. No one recognized me all day, it was fabulous!
