Naked But Wearing Clothes
More pictures from my inbox. The pictures themselves aren't fake. I'm pretty sure of that. But they show a hoax of a kind. This is the caption that accompanies them:

This woman is actually walking down the street with no "real" clothes -- only those painted on her. The passersby didn't give her a second look because the paint looked so much like clothing. YES, she is naked!

I'll give links to the photos, not thumbnails, so that I can continue to claim this site is only 'R' rated. The pictures probably aren't safe for work since the woman is naked (except for her shoes), though she does look like she's wearing clothes, which is the entire point. I was trying to figure out what city she's in, but nothing looks familiar.

Damn, should've been home, when she walked the streets! The pics are taken in the fair city of Copenhagen, Denmark. 1: Str

I've seen a lot of these kinds of picture when I've been on the internet, uh..., you know, uh... researching? Yeah, that's it. Researching the exhibitionist counter-culture to see if it's a threat to our democratic way of life.

He he, smoothed that one over, yesiree

tsk,tsk, Alex... Penis Jokes and now Naked Painted Ladies? Is it Sweeps Week for the 'net? Must be the earthquakes...

Considering the number of people staring at her, I don't think it's fair to say that "the passersby didn't give her a second look."

That said, if the paint job was a little better, she probably could have passed for fully-dressed. The Sports Illustrated body paintings are unbelievably good.

yeah, I'd say she was definitely noticed... and Sports Illustrated did an outstanding job. I'm passing this idea on to a photographer friend of mine.

They do. You just have to look carefuly...And believe you me, I have... >_> <_<

wow, this does NOT look sexy in that last pic, lol. She looks like a goober the way she's standing. She's not much to look at in the face either, other than that, she's kind of hot.

I still think she's probably got a little something on down there otherwise it would seem there'd be more "texture" if you will. Maybe they did some creative spackling before applying the paint???

I don't really think the body painting is all that convincing, and, as Andy says, a lot of passers-by DO seem to be staring at her, or at least grinning in her direction.
The general lack of rioting is probably more due to the fact that in Copenhagen you can walk around naked and it doesn't cause much of a stir. On any nice summer day there (which, admittedly, they don't have too many of in Copenhagen), you can see nude sunbathers in the parks and people skinny-dipping in the bay.

There wouldn't be a texture problem as long as she shaved down there and kept her legs together. On a woman, the front is pretty smooth, you know.

They did a good job on the top, but they bit off more than they could chew on the shorts. There's no way to do a convincing 3-dimensional belt and unbuttoned folded-down flaps with paint on skin.

I have a hard time thinking there were many people who saw her who didn't realize what was up.

At least it appears that she was able to get away with it, even though ultra-easy Denmark actually does have laws against public total nudity; unless, of course, you're on a beach, in an open public park, swimming, skydiving, on any private property, or performing artistic or scientific research of any kind. Did I miss anything? When the hell is the U.S. going to get over Puritanism?

NEVER I'm ashamed to say...
Posted by Mark-N-Isa  in  Midwest USA  on  Thu Apr 14, 2005  at  10:52 PM
Yes, sadly, I agree, Mark-N-Jen. We'll no sooner accept the natural human body publicly displayed (Ooh, it might harm our children's perception of reality, even though most of us bathe naked with our own toddlers), than we would legalize pot. So, we spend tens of millions of taxpayer dollars every year locking up people for marijuana possession, or keeping them in prison, when the country could reap *billions* in the market of controlled, government distribution of it, with the exact same restrictions as alcohol sales and use. Go figure.

It is goofy... Even now I hear stories about women getting hassled for breastfeeding in public. In mean, come on...
Posted by Winona  in  USA  on  Fri Apr 15, 2005  at  12:17 AM
Sod this for a game of soldiers, I'm off to Copenhagen on my holidays.......
Posted by aw  on  Fri Apr 15, 2005  at  06:37 AM
The painting isn't very well done when compared to other people's work...
And it looks pretty obvious that the clothes are painted on.

Most people in a city don't really look at other people, except to navigate around them.
Posted by cvirtue  on  Fri Apr 15, 2005  at  08:36 AM
She ain't nekkid, she's got shoes on...
Posted by Wally  on  Sat Apr 16, 2005  at  12:09 AM
Wally, That was explained in Alex's original post. Do your homework, okay?
cvirtue - You are right on the money.
Boo - Yes, that's what the point is.
aw - Have fun in lovely Copenhagen - bring us back a tart! Yes, the pastry.
Winona - I'm with you. Isn't that public breast-feeding objection the most borish thing?
Sorry, I must be back unto the Enclave. The Mistress will miss me but too long, and then the punishments get harsher. I must obey.

I think the pictures might be from http://www.alsscan.com (very naughty site)

They had very similar pictures to this, previously. Not sure if this was one of them but looks familiar...

It doesn't look very convincing. She'd be best off using liquid latex, then again that stuff really is pretty gross to put on. It has ammonia in it, so if you are putting it on your face the fumes make your eyes water and your skin burn. It's thicker then what it looks like she used. You can get it for pretty cheep on the internet too. However, it's super hard to put on and make it look nice. Not to mention that getting it off hurts like hell...

Regarding textures; Most danish women I know trim their pubic hairs.

Hello...she is in Europe. People walk around buck naked here all the time. Just the other day, I was enjoying a chinese dinner in Frankfurt, Germany and a completely naked man listening to a portable cd player walked by. Who cares. Like I said...It's Europe. I see this kind of thing everyday!

These are from a porn site called something like Painted in Public. Some weird fetish site. I know cause I've seen this before.
Posted by Neil  in  Canada  on  Sat May 21, 2005  at  08:31 AM
i dont think the paint job is that great it wouldnt pass for being fully dressed i mean... she's in the streets and she's "like" only wearing a bikini (even tho she's not) I would be amazed if the painter dressed her with jeans that couldve reached her knees and 3/4 sleeved top!!!

hmm... too expressing...
Posted by Danne  on  Wed Sep 28, 2005  at  04:49 PM
It's one thing to just walk up and down the streets that way, but I wonder if she spoke to anyone while she was doing it? People don't usually pay much attention to each other in a crowd, but if you engage them in conversation, they are paying more attention and would probably notice you were naked if you started a conversation with them.

I am also looking for some body art basically the same as your pictures, but done to prefection.
They were also done in Europe. The girl was much younger and the shorts were straight cut and not angled up. Could you give me any leads on where I might start looking on the internet ???
