RopeCouture’s Top Voters
RopeCouture is going to Orlando
Love the dark and surreal, influences include Fred Kyrel's "vetements de cordes", Dali, Magritte, Bougereau, Goya, and Marcus Ranum. Used to do shibari style bondage, have moved on to more creative work, improving my ropework, lighting, and photography..
Models, please do feel free to bring an "escort", I've had good experience with them, I can always use someone to help hold or untangle bits of rope!
"A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, die gallantly. Specialization is for insects." -RAH
can eat people at super speeds (but has given up cannibalism).

HannahNoel is doing her own incentives for our recent Forniphilia sets, "servent les dames de meuble" from Montaigne, with coffee table books, and "Ceci n'est pas une Chaise" in homage to Magritte.
Thanks for the friend request. Lovely rope work!
Have a happy Thanksgiving.
Thanks lots, I should do more like that.
Thanks for the FR. :)
Thank you for accepting my friend request!
Where do you find such colorful rope?
your sets are wonderful :)
Hey, DO NOT let me forget when you come down to FL!
Thanks! starting to make plans for April....
thanks for the add babe
Thanks for adding me as a friend =) I really love your rope set with HannahNoel =D
Thanks a lot! I'd love to hear what your favorite images were and why, and if you like my decision to make it a large set with all the images better than splitting it into two sets, just the ropework vs just the "table".
To me the rope part and the table part are different sets with a different concept (though Hannah is still in ropes in the table part). But maybe it's just because I love the rope part a lot more... never could get into this girl as a table, chair, lamp or other stuff thingy =/ My favorite images are the views of Hannah's amazing colorful back tattoos surrounded by the green and yellow ropes.
Thanks, I appreciate you taking the time to think about that... I did like the way her back came out, and I kept going back and forth, took a while to decide how to organize them. I'll see if I can come up with some similar shots I think you'll like, and put them in the Dropbox I shared with you for lagniappe.
You're damn right... all those back shots came out awesome. To me it was all worth the effort you were putting into them... you really can tell it from the amazing results =) Thanks for adding some extra photos into the shared folder =) I love both new photos, especially the second one with only Hannah's back tattoo and the yellow ropes shown!!!
Thanks, I should quote you on my CV! The extras were part of a higher level incentive Hannah was putting together, but I think the kind of positive feedback I've gotten from you is as valuable as the votes to me, both as motivation and to pick areas to concentrate on.
I'll watch out for the extra incentive Hannah is putting together... so maybe I'll get those photos twice ;) The chance to get in contact with the models / photographers is one of my favorite features of this site... beside all those amazingly beautiful photo sets, of course ;))
Formidable! I definitely should quote you...
Thank you for the FR!
You're welcome, hope you enjoy!
Thanks for the add!! Your work is stellar!!
Mille mercis, I like your work too!
Thanks, all that is missing is you!
oh how i love rope work <3 and purple and green are my fav colors! just stoping in to say hi and have a great week (; if you have a minute maybe check out my sets <3 xx
my favorites too, Mardi Gras colors!
Thank you very much! Sounds good... looks like you go to DEAC, drop me a line when you start planning your sched, or if you see a prize here you'd particularly like to shoot together.
Thanks a lot!
Thanks for the friend request :)
You're very welcome.
Hi, and thanks for the add. Your profile pic is outstanding!
You're very welcome! I noticed that you commented on a set I liked too, so I thought we might have artistic tastes in common. Glad I was right!
Hey sweetie please check out my new set "Swarovski" http://www.zivity.com/models/Sexy_Maria/photosets/19 and tell me what ya think! If you like it vote please! <3 xxoo
Thanks for the friend request. It is appreciated.
Thank you, the polite note is, too!
Congrats on your first set! xo
Thank you so much! Finally got the second one up, too.
Thanks for friending!
So, someone explain incentives to me:
10 votes on any set gets the high res version. (this means I just send you the zipfile as uploaded to zivity? With my own watermark on it, I suppose? Or should I not give Zivity my highest res imgs?)
15-20 votes on any set gets the above plus bonus photos. (so should I hold back the shots with nudity as an incentive, or just give laughing outtakes and about twice the shots? I could easily give 100 images per set, but that wouldn't be the best ones, and I'm not going to retouch that many)
50 votes on any set gets all the high res + bonus photos of all sets. (is this a good idea?)
25-35 votes- The 10 unseen extras, the full high-res set, AND 14 way too hot for Zivity extras! You know you want to see! (okay, this is from the current top model... is it really stuff that breaks policies, or just nudity?)
getting the high res means that you will receive the set in high res. As you can't save them on here... some people like to keep the set, in such large picture scale, on their computer.
The bonuses are up to you, on how you and your model want to do it. Differently incentive tiers work for different models... no one can really give you a set guideline on "how to make it work".
as per the "too hot" ... Zivity asks that the too hot still falls within the Zivity guidelines (no penetration/hardcore/etc)... but some girls do give out such bonuses. Again, it is up to you and the model on how you want to do it, I suppose. It is NOT required tho ... I am the Top Model of all time, and I do not do anything hardcore.
Its more talking to the members and building friendships.
and I do come to Detroit to visit family a few times a year.
Thank you! It totally rocks to get feedback from the person who is absolutely best at this... and even if we never shoot together, I'm happy to see a Detroit model doing so great!
I won't have time to shoot at Thanksgiving, but we can invite you over if you want to help us eat....
Im staying home (LA) for Thanksgiving, but I will be visiting my family in Detroit for Xmas.
If you have any questions about Zivity, the Ambassadors are all around to help you out. xoxo
How about during the next DEAC?
O hai thar! Checked out your photos. Do you come into Lansing often? I don't have transportation atm, but I do know of a lovely studio that I have permissions to use, if you're interested in working with me. My friend, Dave (Lumigraphics) owns it and would be there serving as escort/helper. I'd love to hear more about your Science Fiction Double Feature shoot. I love RHPS! ^_^
News! They are not only gonna have Rocky, but a ton of panels and stuff about RHPS at Penguicon in just over a week... I just confirmed I'm going, haven't planned to shoot anything yet, but if someone wanted to do a costume for the con and happen to use it for a SciFi shoot at the same time, would that not be Nifty??
