A few years ago I created a fun project. After posing on my blog with pink boxing gloves (to symbolize female strength) I offered to loan the gloves to friends for their own photos. And they accepted! Almost a dozen friends participated as we mailed the gloves around the world. It was a wonderful project that spanned over a year.
Later that month I offered the robe to others. Two close friends immediately accepted the challenge put their own spin on the robe. Instead of going glamour, they tried artistic (Megan) and dramatic (Sheila).
It's fun to see what people come up with when their creativity is unleashed. A playful catalyst like this robe stimulates our imagination. What would you do with it?
Megan, my dear friend in Tennessee, went artistic. Returning to a scene from her childhood (Dragon Park) Megan posed in front of a huge sea serpent. Long known as a badass, Megan brings feisty attitude to the robe. I love the many bright colors in her presentation.
My Canadian friend Sheila moved toward drama with the challenge, Visiting Craigdarroch Castle with her mom, Sheila coaxed her mother -- who trained as a dancer -- to don the robe for poses worthy of Dame Judi Dench. Sheila posted the pictures on her blog.
It's not too late for you to join the fun! Have an idea on how to use the robe? Just e-mail me and I'll ship it to you (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Let's keep this party going!
