Sexy Karate, But Missing Something Perhaps?
You forgot your pants…
Or maybe in this case, I forgot to bring them for her?
Another photography project of sorts. Actually, by definition a “project” is a temporary endeavor, so we’ll see how long this goes in relation to my photography in general.
The inspiration for this project comes from a movie way back in the 80’s, “Revenge of the Ninja”. By today’s standards, and maybe even by 80’s standards, it was probably a very cheesy action movie. But, as I barely turned teen at the time I first watched it, it was an awesome movie and left me with some unfulfilled desires to become a ninja someday.
Well, one desire didn’t go unfulfilled, actually. Many young guys probably remember a impressionable scene where the film’s heroine was dressed to fight karate style but, a-hem, forgets her pants and gets into a sparring match. For some random reason one day, that scene popped back up in my mind and realized my hobby and my residence in the Tokyo area of Japan gives me the opportunities to capture similar artistic moments inspired by that one scene. All I had to do was get a karate gi, appropriately sized for the desired “effect”, and away it went, onto photos.
Maybe the only downer is that the gi isn’t red like in the movie, since I couldn’t find a red one at a reasonable price in Japan. I’m looking into white ones in the future, and maybe a Cobra Kai styled one as well. Still keeping an eye out for a red one that won’t put too large of a hole in my wallet.
But if you’ve found yourself reading this and enjoying the photos, hopefully I’ll have more parts of this project to come. Stay tuned…
And don’t worry, the pants will continue to be “forgotten”!
