You Cannot Win by cassetteject You Cannot Win by cassetteject
Model: Rena's Lips

--

Thank you very much for the DD!!

I don't usually like doing this, but I thought it'd be interesting for others to know what my intent was in terms of the message of the photograph. If you were startled, I did my job correctly. It's supposed to be gaudy and slightly disgusting, not because of the subject (she's a stunning girl), but because of how strange it is to see the sexual and erotic image of too much lipstick juxtaposed with braces, something that is most often associated with innocent children.

But yes, thank you to everyone for the support!! It's made my day! :hug:

Daily Deviation

Given 2006-10-21
Don't look at the gift horse in the mouth? Either way, You Cannot Win has an interesting title but even without the title it probably had u off the rails for a sec there. Such a typical erotic scene with something that's more typical to the real world. =cassetteject has just touched realism. ( Suggested by quinquereme and Featured by suzi9mm )

I do not wish to bore with the details, but this piece speaks novels for me on a personal level, as I had braces from ages 18-21 a HORRIBLE time to have said mouth jewelry. I often fought with my boyfriend about whether or not the braces bothered him, and I always said "I can't win with you."

This is dear to me, thank you for going where others wouldn't dare.

hmm..personal opinion is that it is not realism... the sparkles add too much of a teeny bopper undertone... rather detracting from the common thought that this is realism... to be real is to be pure and natural, even with makeup on, sparkles are plastic and cheap..

would be a definate fav it were a velvety lipstick.

but she is a teenager so the sparkly lipstick makes sense.
