I'm usually a jeans and jumpers type, I lack imagination but I would like to look like an artist in my picture.

I do have an apron with my artist logo on, would I wear that?

nipple tassles, a thong and a big smile.

It all depends what you've done grin

I've done a mural for a local school, I think nipple tassles is probably a tad in appropriate soupy grin

LOLOL! Get that costume!

I would with go with jeans and a bright top plus your apron. And a smudge of paint on your nose?

A big paper bag for my head in my case...

You definitely need a smock and a beret to look like an artist! <<nods sagely>>

If I got that costume at least I wouldn't have to do my hair smile

Liking the jeans idea.

I do have a black with coloured jasper conran dress that doesnt cover my arse that I could wear with leggings and boots? Will put pic (not the best pic of me but shows you the dress) on profile.

I was going to say a vest top, no bra and a pair of jeans that give you a muffin-top but it looks like that angle's already been covered grin

that's a lovely outfit - wear that!

Thanks Corn, with or without cardi?

Are you going to be photographed looking angry, like this?

It looks nice with the cardi and black tights/boots.
