Anti // Valentine’s Day Special || Pokahontas

February 14, 2016 Jasemine Denise Photography 2 min read 7 Comments
This Valentine’s Day is not for the lovers. It’s not about roses, chocolates, and sweet nothings. This Valentine’s Day is for the Anti Valentines. Cupid is here with.. a dark arrow.

I personally am probably the biggest “Anti” Valentine’s Day has ever had. I hate everything about Valentine’s Day and as a girl in the dating world I always wondered what was going on with my relationship with Cupid. Was the perfect man too much to ask? Did Cupid just overlook me? Or was Cupid truly a vengeance demon…  Everyone always described Cupid as a little naked baby with wings and an bow and arrow. What if that’s not cupid? What if Cupid was actually a woman.. a siren… Someone who lures you in with the promise of sweet love, but instead gives you sweet nothings?

ANTI // Pokahontas

I showed up knocking at Poka’s lair at about 4:45am. She was still in her Jack Skellington onesie and I couldn’t help but chuckle at the irony. Here we were on the snowiest day of February thus far, preparing for the coldest shoot we’ll have since the last… The Jack Skellington genderbent cosplay.  It was 5:10 by the time we walked out of her place. It was 10 degrees, snowing, and dark. I trudged past her and hugged myself for warmth. As I looked back, she hocked her crossbow over her shoulder, gave me a dark smile and said.. “Ready to slay?”

Are you An Anti?

Pokahontas and Jasemine-Denise - Blog-5Do you have a story of what made you an anti-Valentine’s Day fan? Hopefully our Dark Cupid didn’t stab you in the neck with her crooked arrow the way she did me. Of course, I was the one that dragged her out of the house at 3 am to hunt for Valentine’s Day prey in her underwear during the preamble to a snow storm. Tell me in the comments below about your anti Valentine’s Day backstory.

This isn’t the only time Pokahontas this week. She and I actually have a photoshoot together that will be launching sometime. I’ll be wearing Nasty Gal top that I had on in yesterday’s ClaustroClothic. Make sure you stay tuned for that. In the meantime, you can follow Pokahontas on Instagram or Facebook or subscribe to the blog for more of her photoshoot madness.

I travel as a photographer, I write novels , and I fan girl a lot. I have an unnecessary attachment to all things 80s punk, 90s hip hop, and girl power. I typically write in the same tone that I talk in so you should probably be prepared for that. Just saying.

    Woah what a very, very cool shoot – it was worth getting up and out! I’m anti as well but no story, I just don’t celebrate V day.

    Amazing shoot! Been throwing Anti-Valentine’s Day parties at Clubs in Chicago since 98…wasn’t old enough to even be there. But I have an obsession with Dark Angels and Demons but Club Girls aren’t the type I look for. So fuck that Holiday!! Cosplay is rare in our Windy City…at least they are hard to find when I am Djing till 5am. I’m glad I found this shoot. Gonna follow ur pages….don’t believe what you see….I’m a weirdo with the most open mind ever! Nice work!
