    Sky- We define our beauty and worth, nobody else gets to do that for us!

    Nude photos and art are powerful. Personally, I use them as a way of reclaiming power over my body. They have the capacity to evoke strong emotions which can really drive a message home. In my own creation, nude art contains messages of freedom, liberation, vulnerability, and self-acceptance. There is nothing more raw and real and that is what truly inspires. I feel this sense of inspiration boil over when witnessing individuals of varying shapes, sizes, genders, ethnicities, and sexualities showcasing their nude bodies and art. It is something so natural and beautiful after all, so why hide it? Many of us have had to overcome difficulties in our minds to find the courage to pose nude. It can be such a cathartic and sacred experience when you finally let go of the doubt and take the plunge. In my personal experience, it has been empowering. I would much rather teach people that nude bodies are nothing to be ashamed of than perpetuate the idea that we should hide them in shame. We define our beauty and worth, nobody else gets to do that for us!

    Michelle - Rebel Heart

    My BEST advice? You are your worst critic. Learn to love yourself and it all falls into place from there. Do NOT listen to the catty drama in the modeling world. It’s never worth it and it only causes you to lose focus. And NEVER compare yourself or your work to others. You are not them, and you never will be. You are you. And nobody else can ever be you. You’re one of a kind and you’ll never be replaced. Live for that NOW!

    Ahbee - Every body is beautiful

    So long as a person's body is out of harm's way, all bodies are beautiful.

    EVERYBODY has their own idea of what is attractive and their own set of kinks. There will always be somebody who finds an individual attractive.

    Just as such there will always be people who will have negative opinions about someone and their appearance. As long as you love yourself and the vessel that carries you, to hell with anybody else's opinion on you, good or bad. 

    Every body is beautiful.

    Pinky - Cosplay is fun

    My advice for a beginner cosplayer would be to just be yourself.

    For most people, cosplay is a way to escape reality.

    Just because you cosplay a certain character does not mean you have to act like that character.

    When I cosplay I'm not worried about being too into character, I'm mostly in it to have fun. Which leads into my second piece of advice, have fun. Always have fun when you are doing anything, whether it is for cosplay or not.

    Having fun, to me, is one of the more important parts of cosplaying.

Locke

Movie review: Locke

http://www.nzherald.co.nz

By Peter Calder

A handsomely shot and superbly acted exercise in cinematic minimalism, Locke, which takes place entirely in a car, is the kind of film that makes a mockery of a star rating system. What it does it does so well, it is hard to imagine it being done better; but in the end it is never more than the sum of its excellent parts.

When the film opens it's late in the evening and the title character, a civil engineer called Ivan Locke (Hardy, who played the villain Bane in the last Batman instalment, The Dark Knight Rises) hops into his high-end SUV at a huge construction site and drives off.

Over the next few minutes we will gather that he's driving from Birmingham to London; that the timing could hardly be worse, because it's a very big day at work; and that the reason for his trip is about to upend his life and the lives of his workmates and family. All this unfolds as a series of conversations he has on his hands-free phone: with his boss, his deputy, his kids, his wife. No other character is visible, though a large handful of disembodied voices provide more than enough dramatic conflict. It's safe to say that this is the first dramatic feature in which the pouring of concrete generates a cliffhanger.

And that's not the half of it.

Writer-director Knight, creates a drama that is entirely internal: this man is not forced to confront his fate, like Duel's Dennis Weaver, in the form of an external agency. Instead he wrestles with competing demands, including those of his conscience and he is never more than simply human: one of the film's strengths is that Locke never seems to be entirely sure why he's doing what he's doing, but he never wavers in the certainty that he's doing it.

Hardy's orotund Welsh accent, at first impressive, becomes faintly cloying as the film progresses - an impression that hardened when I discovered he has no Welsh roots. And the studied symbolism of engineering terms applied to moral challenges wears thin. But it's a mesmerisingly watchable movie that will leave you both exhilarated and wrung out.
