Workers’ playtime, London, 11 December 2019

27 Dec 2019

Which garments to select for my ‘clothed/ or costumed/ partially nude‘ model booking at Blue Zoo Animation Studio? They favour items: “light in color so that we can see the fabric in the light of the room, but if you don’t have anything light that’s fine too as long as it looks interesting; we also like clothes that compliment your body shape.

Latching onto the ‘light in colour‘ part of my brief, I decided to take it to its extreme by donning a 100% white ensemble that I last wore at a cacao ceremony four years ago. As a back-up, I also took a highly patterned top and trouser pairing, in case the white was a bit too boring. I needn’t have worried, though: white was just right.

As is often the way with animators, their preference was lots of quick dynamic poses, and that was my preference too. We started: 3-minutes, 3, 4, 6, 6, 8, 8-minutes, then took a short break. We finished: 10-minutes, 10, 11, 10, 10, 10 and 2-minutes. It was energising but also a nice winding-down at the end of their – and my – working day.
