These were done for the:
Photo Shoot for the Mime Nude contests by :iconhelewidis:

Oh this elfy is a white spotted elf which i am acting to be, white spotted elves cant speak but talk with there bodies and minds telepathically. Sadly they cant sing, but they dance well. They often get misinterpreted as the ghosts or spirits of the forest, as they are fast moving and ethereal.

This one turned out the best and is the one I submit, its the best in quality and the pose is very artistic and seems to go with the mime idea thing...and the elfy looks cute! Looks like i am sniffing the plant or something, or waiting for a fairy that's invisible to appear sitting on the plant.

The best one out of them I chose to submit for the contest, and the rest I upload as photos and stock.
Model: Myself
Location: In my forest
Decor: "all purpose paint"
Phtographer: Myself, or was it the faeries again?

Story:
It took quite some to get the opportunity to get these done, due to the fact I don't have much freedom where i live with the parents, they always ask when something extraordinary happens and when you want to do wonderful things such as body painting, it can be quite difficult. I bought the paint last month, costed R30 in total, 1 black, 1 white and 1 silver. I wanted to do the whole body silver and just hands and face white, but it ran out when i just reached my torso. Then I decided to do the other half of my body with the white and paint the black spots. The problem with the paint is that it wasn't body paint, this was "all purpose" paint, and logically if its all purpose paint i could apply to my body. The second problem, once it dries, it starts peeling, so i could not apply make up over the face nicely because it was thick, and it would peel off when applying make up brushes and sponges, and so just left it as it is.
I took the photos on Wednesday, and decided to go and do them in my forest since at the waterfall there is no where to wash and also I could end up polluting with the paint. So applied the paint on at home, put a rain coat over once it dried, because the neighbours on look the garden before i could enter the forest, and strip it off, The reason being is i did not want them to see me with all the paint on, as it would make them curious and think i am doing some strange voodoo... I took some olive oil with me to try and make skin wet look, but it was almost finished and only could apply small amounts. Went in the forest and found the spot near the swamp. Inside its changed alot since i last been in there, the swamplands have grown, and a small river now runs out from an underground water supply. The annoying thing was the dogs, they could hear me , and they forgot I was in the forest, they barked non stop, so i could not have done it nicely with parents around as they would come and look to see what the dogs were barking at. The little dog eventually found me, I shoed it back home, and did not want it to pester me when i try and shoot. I spent an hour and a half in the forest taking shoots, because of the camera has a small memory card, there was a lot of deleting and saves, and choices to be made what's good and not since i was the photographer myself. What I would do, is think of a pose, find a spot to pose, then program the camera, find a spot to put the camera down, I used logs, twigs, vines to support the camera (or asked a fairy to hold it). Then when the camera was full with the best shots, came out and washed the paint off, it took 4 hours of washing as i did not want my parents to find any traces of paint. Unfortunately some paint went on the raincoat when it was slightly wet. So i had to scrub that as well. So it was a shower, then a bath and then a shower again, finally i could not see any paint but i did have some sticking in my hair when my parents asked if i was playing with "tippex" which is product here in SA like paint for correcting pen mistakes, where in pencil you could have used an eraser. Then I wanted to upload these last night , but my father hogged the internet until a storm came, which lasted the whole night and fell asleep waiting for the storm to pass. Today i wanted to upload them, but the internet wasn't working possibly because of the storm.
But after all that it was 1 hours fun, 5 hours pain of washing and then ducking from parents encase they spot a bit of unwashed paint. If they weren't around i would have not bothered to much...
I hope you enjoy  after all that.
