Thank you, Mews, for directing me to her site. Almost more than her site, I enjoyed her LJ. Her writing is witty, insightful and full of joie de vivre when she is on a roll. And when she is being reflective, it's more insightful and probing, leading me to examine my own inner life. I just read through her journal yesterday, along with loads of great comments. EW manips are not really my cup of tea, unless I think of him as a model, and not as him being portrayed himself -- as a real person. But what she does with him as a "model" is often astounding. There is no getting around it, he has a fabulous face.

Some of her pictures made me swoony, but, since "swoon" definitely taps into each viewer's own personal fantasies and inclinations about sexual intimacy and love, the ones that most touched me were the ones that were the least kinky and the least "in my face."

I loved some of the ones of early EW in the "Tempting" and "Tame" gallery, which were plenty racy for me; ones in which his facial expression was sweet, vulnerable, or sleepy-eyed. But, that's me, I'm a fairly romantic person, however smutty, still fondest of the old, unadorned, passionate, real, I-Thou when it comes to erotica, visual or written. I love what is saucy, erotica with wit and silliness, but I find that more fun than erotic.

Of her "Torrid"s, I did like some of them very much, because of the beauty of the pose, or the loveliness of the model's body, the tilt of a hand, or, frankly, the beauty of a model's genitals or pubic hair (LOVE good pubic hair). But, to appreciate the manips fully, I usually needed to forget the face was EW's. But, that's me. Not an EW swooner, and still a little "funny" about looking at his head on the bodies of people posing for porn. Still, EVEN IF ONLY TO LOOK AT THE EXCELLENCE OF THE MANIPPING!!!!!!! - I wouldn't have missed any of Bandwench's work.

Eee gad, Mews. You ask me one simply question and I blab for paragraphs and never do answer the question.

Have you seen the Masked Elijah she did for a Mardi Gras manip about a year ago?

The only manip I saw in her site of EW wearing a mask was in her "Tame" section. It's red-sequined. Otherwise he's wearing an open white shirt (like an 18th century shirt), a cross on a chain and black pants. If that's the one you mean, while it was an attractive image, since his face does not show, it was not a favourite. Is there another mask manip you might mean?

Besides the "Prince Elijah", which I thought stunning (in all its tints), I sort of melted over what she identified as her first 'Frolijah', which looks like FotR Frodo wearing some cute little white small clothes. She used one of my favourite Frodo faces, from that GREAT set of high-resolution series of publicity stills taken with Ian McKellen, as Frodo and Gandalf (see icon).

I actually read an old het story that Igraine wrote once (one of my favourite authors of Frodo stories, especially erotic ones), which involved the wearing of masks. I found it enthralling and the use of masks worked wonderfully, playing with the idea of the masks people wear emotionally. As a story and as erotica this fic worked beautifully for me.

Perhaps, the idea of masks being worn works for me where the seeing of them being worn does not. Odd, isn't it? I just want to see his face too much, I suppose. :rolleyes:

She does have some really lovely manips.

She certainly does!
