When you think about it, H2S was pretty much where Project Jackie Ep.1 left off. Lots of build up and huge payoffs. So while building a stage set for Project Karen, I felt there was one more element that could be revisited. This would be the “hijacked wholesome show” concept. The whole idea for Jackie’s was that it was her school’s talent show before the Founders came up to make things great, but while a small-time town was a good thing, there’s also a charm when you take things to a higher level (i.e. a more prominent wholesome event), who wouldn’t want to take a jab at the dumb demographic and school them in what constitutes real entertainment? Hurr hurr hurr.
Perhaps one reason why I wasn’t completely satisfied with the private garden show is that I love fancy “costumes” and fancy costumes are meant for showing off. There’s only a few things one can legally use in a private one-on-one session and they’re all sexy lingerie, anything else and the fashion police will be busting your ass for hiding just a fabulous get up. Plus, all this green stuff is making my eyes sore.
Just to be a little honest, there’s also a simplicity to using a performance venue. The name alone pretty much says it all. And while a private show in someone’s opulent residence is a good thing, it just begs for something more. Like what? You pay a girl to give you a private show and that’s it? Oh? Add sex? You mean just about any other venue that gives such sleazy entertainment? So yeah, that garden scenario will have to wait until I have a really good reason to use it. I’ve seen enough premise-less videos taking place in similar environments and the fact that none of them really stand out just solidifies what I said in the past: a video takes more than a single asset (model, stage, music, background) to be good. They ALL have to work together.
Then there’s the choice of ecchi accroutments. They just have no reason to be in a private show. All told, it’s just hard for me to find any justification for a smaller audience. It’s not like it’s going to be a much desired thing from me anyway considering it’s something that’s being done by everyone else and their mother.
Perhaps the root of all of this, is because I have not yet found an overarching premise to what Karen’s project (or anyone else’s) would be.
I do have one idea, but it’s impossible given the lack of motions for it, and that is burlesque. Plus, I can’t imagine the idea of cute, nubile Karen sounding like an old hag, it’s sacriledge.
Speaking of burlesque with it’s Bossa Nova music, I haven’t decided what theme of song to use, more specifically if it’s going to use a band or not. Because of how large my files can balloon along the line, it’s important for me to finalize Karen’s get up and set up the band as soon as possible.
One idea I briefly tried tangling with was a parade float. The idea of having something cutesy towering over the back of the float would have been great, it would make a great platform for hanging up the all-important screen for alternate views. But what could that be, I have not decided yet. A giant cake would look nice if her Karen’s costume looked more like sweets and stuff, like that eternally sugar high squirrel from Happy Tree Friends.
Karen’s current get up though, seems to be more in the line of fairies, or samba, foresty, or tropical-ish stuff.
Flowers, or maybe some large tribal idol as a parade float would look like a good thing. The baby blue and violet makes me think of cutesy inane design elements as well, so it can’t be an outright hentai parade but a hijack.
I’ll be honest though, a parade setup can be very costly to my RAM, the hundreds of mobs I need to generate, that’s about six models i need, three for either side.
Then of course the background people or other stuff in the background. I mentioned a band but there’s gotta be more to it if it’s going to look festive….oh and the fact that I have to put it onto a city that doesn’t look like crap.
That could be a very tall order.
and with a getup like that, where do electric guitars and drum fit that genre while remaining festive? Guess it’s back to the invisible DJ table obscured by a ginormous billboard/slide show.
