I hope no one minds if I jump in here with my 2 cents regarding SG.. SG is not the kind of thing you just "join", unless you mean joining as in subscribing to their site.
I have been through the process with SG and this is how it works:
You have to submit several photos of yourself. If they accept them, you then have to submit a professionally taken photo set (at your own expense) consisting of several photos in various stages of undress. With this, they ask that you include a signed model release form, proof of age, and a signed agreement form giving SG exclusive rights to your photoset.
Even if you do all of this, SG can decline to publish your photos on their page, yet they retain all rights to the photos anyway.
This means they can sue you if you try to publicly post or publish them anywhere else without the SG watermark attached.
Generally, if SG does accept your photoset, they will pay you around $250 for it and all others after that you submit. In return, you are not allowed to model for anyone else without their permission or they will "retire" your SG profile.
To be honest, it's a total rip-off.
$250 for a whole photoset is a pittance. Any real photographer will pay you $250 A ROLL plus travel time and expense.
You're better off paying a professional photographer to take high quality portfolio shots of you and then setting yourself up on Model Mayhem or seeking out an alternative models agent.

So the gym I belong to now offers a Burlesque Beats class. I am trying it out during lunch today. Wish me luck!

~~~Yesterday you said tomorrow.~~~

~I'm not going to sit here and tell you day after day that you can do it. If you don't believe you can do it, then you sure as hell won't achieve it. You have to want this for YOU!!~

i adore burlesque and have been lucky enough to see it live. If you ever get a chance...see the pontani sisters....they're amazing. They also have their own "workout" dvd it's called go-go-robics....very entertaining and actually works you out.

So I am very interested in burlesque and would love to learn more about it and maybe start doing it. I have always adored pinups and hope to be one. I thought about joining SG (if they would take me), but I think I live in the wrong area. Does anyone know of anything that occurs in the Pittsburgh area?

Just a warning about SG. I have a good friend who is a Suicide Girl and for the work and effort she has put into it, she has been totally screwed around! They don't pay their girls...
I've been offered as well, but I'd rather pose for people who appreciate that there's more to being a pinup then just taking off your clothes for the camera. check out this link for an example http://www.pinupsforpitbulls.com

I've always adored the old school pin-up girls! I wanted to be one! I'm totally a fan of the Suicide Girls, & wish they had a group on here! I was asked to join them a couple of years ago..& because of my poor self image, declined!
If you're willing, maybe we can try to get some of the girls to join! It would be a great boost to our collective self esteem having these confident, beautiful, strong, non-cookie cutter women around!
XOXO -Lisa

Good Friday Everyone!
I'm dropping off a GREAT BIG (verbal) HUG for all of us! Even when we make a "mistake", we getright back on track! We shouldn't beat ourselves up over every little slip, its just precious energy wasted. Let's just focus on our healthy streaks & accomplishments!
We're all very strong, to be able to come here and open ourselves to asking for help, admitting a mis-step, even deeply personal issues! We should be shouting loud and proud, that "WE PUT THE SPARK in SPARKPEOPLE!!!" emoticon XOXO, Lisa

There are alot of people who TRY to do burlesque. And alot of them dont know the history of it. Its sad that the word burlesque gets thrown around so much in so many trashy ways.
Are you in NY? Theres SO much wonderful and amazing Burlesque there!

I've only seen Burlesque on tv... but I would love to see it in person. My friend and I are trying to get to Coney Island before it closes to see Burlesque on the beach. Around here we have a lot of people who try to do burlesque... but it always ends up as a trashy titty show... so sad

Hello there, I'm Sho, from Glasgow (new to SP) and yes indeed I've seen burlesque vids and performances and semi-regularly attend my local burlesque club Club Noir - reputed to be the biggest burlesque nightclub not only in the UK, but the world!

http://www.clubnoir.co.uk/

I'm also a keen bellydancer so naturally I've seen - and ADORE - Princess Farhana! I saw her live in performance! She's amazing! Not only a brilliant dancer technically, but such a performer - saucy and funny and beautiful, really gets the crowd going!

I'd LOVE to look like her, incidentally: she is beautifully toned and curvaceous, to me that's a real inspiration and the epitome of feminine beauty - I'm fed up with the images of so-called female skinny beauties like Paris Hilton which we're force-fed by the media and which are unrealistic for most women to aspire to - and I guess that's part of the reason I love burlesque and bellydancing, these are art forms that celebrate beautiful, sexy, curvy WOMEN and that's what I want to be!

Anyway - nice to be here, let's hope more folks join!

Love 'n booty-shakin', Sho x
