Hooters Bar

Howdy everyone,

After winning the February Photo Contest on the Doll Forum I chose Hobbies as the subject. I have several besides doll photography and one is collecting just about anything Hooters especially uniforms. I probably have over a hundred in regular uniforms, but a lot of specialty ones. In these pictures Ceilidh has a shirt for St Patrick’s Day and a special name tag in green, but I had her name spelled out in English instead of Gaelic. I just got another pair of Skechers to complete one more uniform so Dottie could join in the fun. I don’t have a Dottie name tag so Camp chose Haley.
Since it was March when these pictures were taken I did a St Patrick’s theme for the first set of pictures. Notice that Haley has red hair and the green derby while Kaylee has her stuff and the Shamrock City shirt. All that is missing is the green beer. Speaking of which in the next set of pictures Haley gets distracted when someone says “look up here” and spills a beer Sad All was fine until someone also said “use your shirt” but it looks like Kaylee beat Haley in taking her shirt off Laughing out loud It also looks like Kaylee got a bit distracted in taking Haley’s shirt off Evil Finally she gets the shirt off and writes “Kiss Me I’m Irish” in lipstick on Haley and seals it with a kiss Cool
On the tech side both dolls are being held up with stance modifiers, which took forever with two dolls and that busy background, to Photoshop out. Being in the basement I can use lumber jacks, which hook on the floor joists, to hang the modifiers from. I am working on another system to hang the modifiers from. It is called Unistrut or Super Strut, and is designed to hang stuff from like conduit or pipe. I mounted it with the floor joists so it is less noticeable. The strut has special nuts that hook inside and eye bolts can screw into. The eye bolt can screw in tight to hold the modifier and doll in place, or loosened to slide the doll along the strut. The advantage is that you don’t have to pick up the doll to move her, and there are no marks like the lumber jacks make. You can also add a piece perpendicular to make like a grid to mount the doll anywhere in the room.
