Though to be honest it hasn't just been a lack of time that is repsonsible for my failure to shoot some new stuff. Part of it has been a lack of motivation. Don't misunderstand, I'm not losing my passion for dressing but rather I've gone through most of my outfits and pretty much everything I think would be good for a shoot has been used. I'm loath to repeat myself so it's hard to find the motivation to climb back into an outfit I've already used if I don't have a fresh spin on it.

An obvious solution is a new wardrobe. Since I'm not yet in a position to start expanding my wardrobe I thought it would be fun to give my fans a chance to contribute. I've created a publicly accessible Amazon wishlist. On it I've selected 100 items in a wide range of theme and price. Everything from heels to full costumes to temporary tattoos, anything that I think would be fun to do a shoot in. For those unfamiliar with how a wishlist works, you can purchase items from it and have them sent to me directly through Amazon.
So here's the deal, I pledge that any items purchased will be featured in a new set of pictures. Nothing will simply sit idle in my closet. I'll also gladly take requests from those who purchase items on how to feature them in photos (assuming the requests are not of an overtly pornographic nature, because that's just not happening.) If anybody has additional suggestions they can send them to firstname.lastname@example.org and I may add them to the wishlist.
