“There are really only two plays: Romeo and Juliet, and put the darn ball in the basket.” ~ Abe Lemons
I was the star of my grade school basketball team, which is kind of a joke because I went to a Catholic school (Catholic grade schools don’t crank out great athletes generally). We had no gym, very poor physical education, and our coaches were volunteer parents. But I enjoyed playing and the basketball hoop my dad installed for me still stands at the house where I grew up many years later.
Entering public high school, I was immediately dropped from the team. I didn’t mind because I found practices boring. Whatever it is in great athletes to find victory, part of it is the ability to find pleasure or meaning in endlessly boring and repetitious exercises. I was sick of lay-ups.
Rogan Diesel came out with this great little pose prop for the upcoming Liaison Pose Pavilion—the basketball puts you in all sorts of athletic poses—so I wanted to try to replicate my athletic self grown up and sexier. I started with a racerback set from Anessa Stine with matching tube socks and worn the cute little high-tops from Reira Islay that are at Collabor88 right now.
Aida Ewing’s bare faced Cleo is perfect for an athletic girl. With a luscious toned body and a pretty but not overdone face, this star is set for the court. And a high ponytail from Truth Hawks makes all the sense in the world for hard play.
You’ll miss 100% of the time if you never take a shot.
