Wu Feature History - Cierra (2009)

The following is part of a series of blogs that will look back at all the feature sets from Soles of Silk that have appeared on Wu's Feetlinks and the girls who made them a success. Carmen got the ball rolling in 2006 and every year since, Soles of Silk has had a set featured on Wu's Feetlinks - the most recent of which stars Aspen. In the last entry we looked at Madison's well deserved feature. In this one, things get quite a bit more playful and teasing...

Cierra had to use the magnifying glass to "find" stuff.

2009 Feature: Foot & Size Tease

Model: Cierra
Shoe Size: 4

I always strive to do something creative for Wu's feature sets. This time around my aim was to do something different and/or memorable. With Cierra picked for this feature, we decided to try something just a bit outside the box, but something I've seen on other sites. This "something" was a bitchy, size tease theme. I wasn't sure what Cierra would think, but when I ran it by her, she loved the idea and was up for the challenge of being a "bitch" for the day.

Since I keep Soles of Silk free of nudity and sexual content, Cierra and I began to brainstorm some ideas. Since I love using props in my sets, Cierra and I thought a magnifying glass and ruler would be a great ideas. From there I took to the Internet and found some items that made light of smaller guys, without going overboard. I found her a t-shirt with a slogan reading "size matters" and a notebook that said "size does matter." Both items also had rulers on them, so the it made a little theme. And then a couple of days before we were set to shoot, I found a pair of flip flops at the mall that read "bitch" on the soles. I grabbed them and considered them icing on the cake.

I was curious to see how the reaction to this set would be and it didn't take long to find out either. It was a massive hit. Most found the set to be overly funny. Others who are into bratty girls and size teasing loved it. Many asked me to do more sets with these themes in the future. And since some of my other models loved Cierra's set so much, I listened to the fans and made the size teasing and bratty girl theme a reoccurring one. Guess you have Cierra to thank for her original tease.

The ruler was just one of Cierra's props.

Be sure to check back for a look at the feature set that followed this one, a set that mixed a couple of my favorite things - Mindee's feet and comic books.
