Merry X-mas everyone! I hope you all have a wonderful time with your family and loved ones :) And if you don't celebrate Christmas, have a nice day anyways! :XD:

Who is gonna be my Santa and get the milk and cookies? ;P

Btw, as most of you noticed I posted my first fully nude photo set. I got a bunch of questions about why I decided to go all the way out when so far I had just been teasing, and instead of replying a ton of notes with the same question I thought I'd answer here.

The main reason I can think of is I wanted to make things more "natural". Being a tease all the time made nudity felt as something more "sexualized" of what it is, and I wanted to avoid that. My main inspirations were models like :iconariadreamgirl: and their photos. I particularely love Aria's photos and how she shows herself in such an open, I'd say joyful fashion, and I've been taking her as inspiration for my own photo stuff. That doesn't mean that every photo set will be showing it all :P but when the particulat set calls for it I won't avoid it. Hopefully that answers the question! :)

As for a few more questions I got in-mass...

My Tumblr is  jsselwood.tumblr.com/
I take my photos myself with the help of a couple tripods and the timer.
I wear my masks because it adds a level of eroticism when I do it. I like the contrast of being covered in some areas while others are exposed (Hence the black stockings).
The title of the photo set is because... Well, if you don't know it will stay a mystery! ;P

And finally, why was everyone so surprised about the lack of... "carpet"? :P I even got complains about it.

People who complain about carpet vs no carpet IMHO need to get their priorities straight. The female figure is beautiful regardless of the carpeting or color. If when you see a nice slice of pie your first thought is to complain about the carpet/lack of carpet of said pie.....well they probably don't deserve the pie at all and should go eat some fish sticks. Nice curves by the way, and I do mean the whole figure and not just the fun bags. ;)

Hope you had a Merry Christmas and will have a great new year when it comes, I don't see why anyone would be shocked about nude photos in art since the human body is considered an art form of some description. Also don't see why anyone would complain about you shaving certain areas, since I think that makes it more cuter and is more truer to who you are n_n

I'm not trying to be insulting, but isn't it a bit contradictory to say that you don't want nudity to be so "sexualized" yet you openly called these photos a strip tease, and in this journal entry say "I wear my masks because it adds a level of eroticism when I do it". Doesn't that kinda imply that sexualization is the entire driving force behind this whole thing?

There is a difference between my perception of them and the perception others have. Not to say there is a diference between eroticism and sexualization. When taking them wearing the masks allow me to open up more, and pose more freely, because the act of posing feels more erotic.

is like, a pornstar may show up going at it with twelve guys, but chances are she no longer sees it as something "erotic" and instead does stuff to cater to the viewer's desire for raw sexualization. And being a "cocktease" has the same result.

That is what I wish to avoid in my photos :)

Okay. I'm a little confused here.
You say you made a full nude photo set because you wanted to make it feel more "natural". Then you later add that you wear the masks because it makes it more "erotic".
Bit of an Oxymoron, don't you think?

I rather like your nude photo set, and I would like to mention that I agree completely with you that we should avoid treating nudity as sexuality. They are two entirely different things, as much as a glass is different from orange juice: One helps you enjoy the other more, but they are most definitely different things.
Nudity is about beauty.

PS. the 'lack of carpet' as you put it was actually a nice touch, in my opinion. I prefer it that way. :P

Hmm... Besides Halloween, do you consider doing holiday themed photoshoots and artwork? To get into the spirit of the holidays I say slip on those candy cane striped panties and knee socks! How about a pink wig and a Santa beard gas mask!(just joking).
Merry Christmas Ms. Elwood, and a happy new year.

P.S. Lack of 'carpet" or not your appearance is breathtaking nonetheless.

I didn't mind the lack of carpet, hardwood floors never put me off. I thought you were lovely. The see through panties sort of made me tilt my head though, but I wouldn't qualify that as a complaint.
Anyways, I'm glad you feel comfortable doing this. You're quite lovely and its good that you are confident enough in yourself to show it.
And having said that, I really would like to make a more sexualized comment, because I just can't help it. XD

A happy holiday to you good lady.
