ISLAND STYLE COMFORT

SSI EDITIORS NOTES Wow, what a ride! When Chuck Neauenbaur, owner of Swimwear Illustrated, suggested I take over Swimwear Illustrated Magazine and its web site, plus the operations I jumped at the chance. (Joe Goodwin and I formed Red Comet Studios earlier this year to take on projects just like SSI.) To have the opportunity to take a traditional T & A genre magazine and transform it into a young-at-heart lifestyle Fashion Magazine. SSI will be devoted to covering beach locations, and beach fun resort wear, vacation activities and young-at-heart adventures. SSI will now be adding men and menswear along with maintaining the traditional beautiful women and their health and beauty tips. We, at SSI, are also creating an outlet for up and coming models and photographers to display their work and promote themselves worldwide. So, we will always welcome contributions from new people and suggestions from all. Swimsuit Illustrated Magazine, is a state of the art, social media friendly, web-based internet magazine with the ability to view it on your social media devices, at home on your desktop or web enabled TV’s. You can also print it on your home computer or have the choice of a hard copy printed collectors edition. Stayed tuned on where you can Order it! Since we are dedicated to you, our loyal SwimSuit Illustrated fans,we will are giving away our first couple of issues! Swimsuit Illustrated Magazine will constantly be looking for new designers, models and photographers, that are on the cutting edge of what “real” active women and men are wearing and enjoying at the beach. Not just the gorgeous vacation beaches of the world. But what is being worn at the rivers and lakes of the Czech Republic, the ponds of Maine, the high mountain streams of Colorado, and the watering holes of the South. Where ever people enjoy the fun beach lifestyle. SSI will now be printed and distributed on the first day of each season to celebrate the coming of change. I want to mention with a heavy heart, the passing of our friend and former owner of Swimsuit Illustrated Magazine, Chuck Neauenbaur. Please see the wonderful tribute that our friend, Lola Estelle, wrote about the special relationship that we all had with Chuck and how much he meant to her. For me, Chuck gave me the chance to take over this magazine and we had fun working and playing together. Chuck had a tough outsider manner to some, but to me he was a big kid who loved to help people and give new people a break. He mentioned to me more than once, that he wanted to open an orphanage in Mexico, to help the street kids get a chance at a good life and career. Chuck, you are truly missed by many and I am impressed by how many life long friends you have. Now more fun news. We, at Red Comet Studios, have decided to start publishing a sister magazine to SSI, JORNH. It will be focusing on the Fashions of a young attitude and style. Fresh new models and a young lifestyle. We will cover club wear to outdoor wear, hiking boots to hip club shoes, designer wear to vintage recycled clothing, plus, accessories and creative fashion tips. Look forward to JORNH in your e-mail. We, at Red Comet Studios and Swimsuit Illustrated Magazine, are proud of this issue and hope you enjoy it. We are pleased to introduce our new advertisers, models, and photographers, to our global market and looking forward to creating this opportunity for our future friends. Have fun at the “Beach”!

SWEET CHILI-GLAZED CHICKEN WINGS If you’re adverse to the idea of frying, these wings can be baked on a sheet pan in a 400° for about 20 minutes until they are golden brown. If you decide to fry them, dredging the wings in rice flour before doing so will ensure the formation of an extra crispy crust. If you’re having a hard time finding rice flour, you can omit this step and proceed to frying the wings after you’ve thoroughly dried them with paper towels. Making the glaze is a simple affair, just be careful not to overreduce the sauce to the point of a caramel. You will know the glaze is ready when it coats the back of a spoon. The resulting glaze is especially sweet, so if you want a bit more of a sour bite to your wings, don’t be afraid to scale back the amount of sugar that is called for here. Looking for a bit more heat? Add more chili-garlic sauce. Less heat? Just reduce the crushed red pepper called for in the dish. INGREDIENTS: • 2 pounds chicken wings • 1/4 cup peanut oil • 3 tablespoons finely chopped cilantro • 3 tablespoons soy sauce • 2 1/2 tablesp00ns minced garlic • 2 tablespoons minced ginger • 1 teaspoon dried crushed red pepper flakes • 1 cup rice flour • Oil for deep frying (such as peanut oil, canola, grapeseed or vegetable) • 1 cup rice vinegar • 3/4 cup granulated sugar • 1/2 cup water • 1 tablespoon chili-garlic sauce • 1/4 cup thinly sliced green onions

CHUCK: An Absolute Legend By Lola Estelle My friend Chuck was a man I could trust to put my life in his hands and not have to think twice about it (I did it numerous times). Mexico was our second home and playground. I fell in love with Mexico and its culture while exploring and learning the areas with Chuck. He was respected in the racing world. And in Mexico, he was well-known. I mean, we could be driving, stopped at a stop sign and someone would drive by, recognize him and stop to chat and catch up for a minute. On numerous occasions! We would drive around and he always had the coolest stories to tell. Ranging from soccer teams and restaurants (he showed me where the first ‘Caesar’ salad originated) to how the color of the flowers on the hill sides could lead you to “El Jefe” (the boss). Yellow meant “caution”, purple meant “royalty” or “Jefes” (bosses), red meant “don’t go there“, and white meant “friendly and welcoming“. Chuck spent the last month of his life preparing for, and from what I believe, what he knew would be his last Baja race. We stayed at a beautiful ranch called Rancho Rincon El Tropical; about 5 miles inland down a dirt road in Rosario. A gorgeous valley of horses, hills, and the weather was always so breezy and warm. I remember it seemed like every time we would drive down that 5-mile road (what felt like an eternity because you had to drive so slowly), a memory would spark up and there was always this one race he would talk about. As he would tell me about this Baja 500 race, his whole being would light up. I knew by the way he looked while he talked about it and the things he would tell me, it was his favorite place to be and his passion. I was fortunate to attend my first Baja 500 race this year, and it was Chuck’s last. We had a race team called Los Maniacos and Las Chikas Malas! (The Maniacs and The Naughty Girls!). Our group included hotographer, Billy Pegram, and close friend, Mo Martinez. What a group of fun, collaborative and cool people! Chuck ran the first leg of our race in awesome timing. Once he finished and passed the baton, you could say, our next rider took over and did his leg. We were in third place at that point. Everything was flowing until I realized that I had the truck keys at the start line and we realized I was supposed to hand them off to Billy, our photographer. Oops. Now they were stranded- I had the keys and we had a race to win! Aw, crap! Well, as usual, there Chuck came to save the day; He pulled up on his

motorcycle like he always would, popped a wheelie and got the keys. I knew I was in trouble! Nope, for some reason that weekend, nothing seemed to ruffle his feathers. Not even being stranded. I was shocked. Anyway, I got into the truck with him and we headed over to our next pit station during our ride. Chuck was pumped and told me that he hoped he’d get to ride one more time! Hoping someone would not want, or be able to, finish their leg. Well, his wish came true, at pit number 4. When we arrived to our pits, our bike went faulty. It was the water pump. Our team came together, fixed it, and at that time, our rider, had heat exhaustion. Chuck stepped up, so excited, and geared up. We took a few photos and he took off into the sunset. In my heart I knew he wasn’t coming back, but I ignored it, thinking that it was just a crazy thought.

Our team raced to where the finish line would be. And, of course, I was supposed to follow behind in Chuck’s truck, but with me being confused in the desert (everything looks the same), I went the wrong way, accidentally following the course and getting the truck stuck in soft sand. Great! Then I forgot the keys and I got the truck stuck where there’s no phone service, 120 degrees, and everyone’s going to be waiting at the finish line and not know where or how to find us. Great, I screwed it all up again! We found a group of nice guys who were willing to help us get un-stuck. Guess what happened when they tried to help us. Oh yeah, they got stuck too! We piled rocks under the tire, it popped and went flat! Someone else came and tried to help and

Finally, after four-and-a-half hours in the heat, thirty men, a flat tire, five broken straps, six trucks (5 out of the 6 got stuck trying to help), two jeeps came side by side, and pulled me at the same time out of that damn sand.

someone came up to us yelling, saying the bike we had in the back was not ours. I thought we were getting mobbed. It turned out that not even 2 miles down the course, Chuck was found dead. And the person, who thought we stole Chuck’s bike (and didn’t know him from Joe Schmo), thought that we were stealing it. I translated, he finally understood that Chuck was part of our team and we had two bikes with the same number on them.

They were pulling us back toward the pits when, suddenly,

He opened the door to his pick-up truck and asked if this

they also got stuck! I wanted to cry at this point, I couldn’t believe what was happening. I counted thirty Mexican men at once, trying to get us out of this hole I’d gotten us into.

was our rider. I couldn’t believe my eyes. There he was, in the back of the truck, lifeless. From what I gathered, the guys who picked him up said they passed him once and saw him leaning against the bike. They’d asked if he needed water and he said “no” and was going to “keep going“. They went around a second time, saw our bike propped up on the kick stand, then found his body about 50 yards away. When they did the autopsy, he was wearing five layers.

They confirmed his death as heat stroke leading to a heart attack. He had a mission, he was determined, he died how he wished, and doing what he loved. After his passing, I remember so many things that he would tell me when he would talk about this race. I added it all up and realized, that he was preparing everyone and everything for his passing. He had once told me “ I would be happy dying out there, don’t ever put me in a hospital, let me go www.swimsuitillustrated.com | 49

out in my desert. My death will be bigger than my career ever was”. He had covered all of his bases. He’d gotten rid of his houses and went to live Mexico a month before the race. I later found out that the truck I was driving wasn’t his. It was a rental, the same model as his (thank goodness, because at the end of the day that truck was messed up and had 3 flat tires!). He went out doing what he loved. That day in the desert, his spirits were the highest I had ever seen. He was bright eyed and he was the happiest Chuck I had ever seen. He had an amazing life, is survived by many children, and was someone in my life who touched me in a way that is indescribable. He was unique. He was my friend, confidant, mentor, and inspiration;

Max Payne 3 Review Farewell, my hangover. Daniel Krupa MAY 14, 2012 Max Payne has suffered beyond reasonable limits. (It’s all in the name.) Nine years have passed since the last game in the series, yet little has changed for its long-suffering protagonist, who remains deeply traumatised by the death of his wife and child. ‘Trauma’ is the key word – in Greek, it means ‘wound’, and Max is someone who has never let his fully heal. To move on would be to forget – a betrayal of those he loved – and so instead he chooses to wallow in the past and the pain, with the help of brown liquor and white pills.

Team Fortress 2 Review Well worth the wait? by Charles Onyett OCTOBER 9, 2007 Aren’t you glad Team Fortress 2 didn’t wind up looking like this? Valve has created quite a game with the long-awaited Team Fortress sequel, bearing many similarities to its predecessor, though incorporating enough changes to make it feel fresh. The most obvious aspect, which you may have noticed from any of the screens and video posted, is the visual style. Even after getting sucked into probably too many hours of play in the beta over the past few weeks, we’re still amazed at the art design, both in how it looks and how it animates.

Kapu Bikinis translates to tabu in Hawaiian, Hence the name because they are tiny suits and could be considered tabu by some. Kapu Bikinis was launched in 2006; I was inspired as a local boy that grew up on the beach in Hawaii enjoying the surf, girls in their bikinis and photography. We have so much natural beauty in Hawaii why not show off some of the beautiful women that are here and come to the islands. In fact I sold bikinis in college to make some extra cash and imagined a company down the road that could fulfill all my passions. The swimwear caters to women who are looking to show off their bodies, feel good about themselves and be able swim and surf as well as just relax and tan. The fabric is long lasting and the colors don’t fade. Women tell me they trust the quality of the suits not becoming loose in the water or falling apart after a lot of sun and water exposure. The type of women that enjoys our suits range from teens to women in their 50’s. Women enjoy our product and are comfortable and confident with their bodies. They love that Kapu suits are so light it feels like they are wearing nothing at all. Our suits make a statement and they grab attention wherever a Kapu woman goes. What women doesn’t want to be appreciated for her beauty. Kapu is sold only in Hawaii and Hulakai Store in Mauna Lani on the Big Island. Our swimwear has been featured in car shows; stand up paddle races and on “My Antonio.” We are launching a new site soon, you can view the suits at www.kaluhawaii.com/catalog/ or you can find us on Face Book at Kapu Hawaii, or call 808-990-0334.

Body Painter & Beyond

By Iana Klenz Bryan Crump, a well-known body painter, sustained serious injuries several years ago, and was over-medicated which nearly cost him his life. He says, “I have spent several years recovering and getting back on my feet. It gave me a new perspective on life.” Bryan isn’t just a body painter, he is also a photographer, motivational speaker and writer. He continues to educate himself, “I am what you would call a life-long learner. I am always looking to learn and improve in many areas of my life”. He’s studied public speaking, marketing and commercial art.

did the storms in Oklahoma affect your work?

t has been a challenge. Currently, I am writing a few books and working to replace and rebuild my portfolio. Everything I have done up to this point, I consider just the a training period.

long have you been body painting? And what inspired you to start doing it?

have been doing body painting and basic makeup for over 12 years. When I first got a favor to a friend in Colorado. I ended up moving with some jewelry designers to Las t to promote my art. Everything took off when I started doing promotions for the clubs h John Guzman and working with photographers like Billy Pegram. Eventually, I moved to worked in Hollywood and Los Angeles.

t’s your ultimate goal when painting a woman’s body?

When painting any woman, my goal is to compliment or accentuate her beauty. I am of art on one of the ultimate canvasses. I got into the photography because of my body eate art that lifts women up, inspires them and gets them out of their shell. To be able to e ladies and create something that makes them feel beautiful and special is a gift in itself.

t was your most challenging body painting project?

hink it would be doing the large events. As my work started getting more popular, people g me to do more work. It went from painting one or two people in one night to doing as one event so, I had to develop a system and teach the models and assistants how to help in an assembly line type setup. In the end, it was very rewarding. Having the right team fference in creating dynamic and beautiful pieces of art. I have been blessed to work with people.”

t was your most rewarding body painting experience?

here are a few I could name. I recall one time I was painting for a friend of mine in front of `Vavoom’, in North Hollywood, across from the Emmy Headquarters. They were having l that particular weekend and I was doing body painting to promote my art and help draw the store. It was a fun but stressful day. I was painting away and a photographer asked a picture. I am not even sure I looked up because I was so focused. The next day, we had on the cover of the Sunday edition of the Los Angeles Daily News. To me, that was a hment. Since then, my teams and I have been published worldwide. I still remember that wspapers, though. It was a tremendous gift and opportunity.

SSI: What’s some advice would you give to aspiring body painters? Bryan: “Be passionate, compassionate, sensitive, focused and driven.

We work in an industry that literally transforms people and not every model is a seasoned actor or actress. Especially when dealing with full body painting, be sensitive. Trust is a huge thing to consider when doing what we do. Get everything on the table, let expectations be known and work to have clear communication. Some people have never done this before. Know what you want to accomplish and set standards for yourself and those you work with. Have model releases and agreements. Know the rules and laws of where you live.Take time to create your art. Some of the best pieces can take anywhere from 8 hours to 48 hours or more. It all depends on the level of detail, designs, quality and how many skilled assistants you have with you. Keep a good spirit about yourself and work to create awesome, amazing and inspiring designs.”

With the hardships Bryan’s faced in his life, his dedication to his art, his positive outlook and perseverance, makes him a true inspiration. He says, “I have also stepped into the field of teaching and motivational speaking. Taking all my creative skills and mixing them into productive and engaging events. I am always working to challenge myself and my team so we can get better and better. Who knows what is over the next horizon.”

If you think sexy lingerie always involves a sheer bra and G-string, think again. It doesn’t matter what you wear – it’s all about picking bootylicious pieces that work for your body. We sat down with two top lingeristas: Rebecaa Apsan, author of The Lingerie Handbook (Workman Publishing Company, Nov. 2006), and Lisa Cole, who conducts seminars on lingerie and body confidence.

Well listen up, girlfriend. It’s time to throw away those granny panties and big ole sports bra.

Oo

Think you’re too fat, old or ugly to wear gorgeous undergarments?

h

Our undie experts shared their secrets on getting a guy to buy you beautiful undergarments – and feeling foxy in your new sexy skin. Plus: Take our quiz to discover how seductive you are…

Check out the top four excuses women use for avoiding provocative undies – and the reasons why these excuses are completely bunk.

W

hy Every Woman

hla -la ! Needs Sexy Lingerie!!! By Carly Young, Special to Lifescript

www.swimsuitillustrated.com | 127

“Confidence comes from the inside out,” says Cole. Excuse #1

Only Victoria’s Secret models look good in lingerie!

.

You don’t have to look like Heidi Klum - or any other cover girl – to look sexy in your underwear. Looking good is a result of feeling good, and confidence doesn’t come from the perfect legs or a certain waist size. A California-based lingerie expert, she travels the country teaching women “undercover” tactics for boosting self-esteem. Her trademark seminar, “Underneath it All,” advises timid first-timers on how to use intimate apparel to project a confident body image, regardless of body type.

Excuse #2

Building a new lingerie wardrobe takes a lot of money Sexy underwear isn’t about how much you spend – it’s about how you feel. If you can find hot styles at Target, then more power to you! No matter what brand you buy, Cole recommends that every woman own six great bras with matching underwear. Make sure you have a variety of bras, like seamless and cotton, and don’t forget a strapless number for halter tops. Just don’t be too practical.

“Every woman should own a beautiful lace bra,” Cole says.

If an all-lace bra is too girly-girl for you, stick with a bra that has it only on the straps or as a trim. Where to shop? Cole has recently partnered with Freshpair.com, a leading lingerie retailer online. “They have something for everyone,” she says. And because their clothes won’t break the bank, you’ll still have money left over for those killer boots you’ve been eyeing

Excuse #3

“I’m not sexy.

No matter how you feel about your body, beautiful undergarments always have a place in your life. A camisole and boy-short set can be just as hot as a sheer bra – you just have to figure out what will accentuate your favorite body part. If you’re feeling flirty and girly, go with the cami, but if you’re feeling va-va-voom, pull out the sheer bra. And don’t wait until you lose weight or tone up that backside to cover your booty in something cutie. “It’s all about being “comfortable where you are,” Cole says.

“ Take control ”

Because women will often have lingerie from different designers and stores, write down every size that you see. It’s like taking notes in college, only naughtier. If you still need some help, check out the boutique online at thelittleflirt.com for more visuals (click on the “tips for men” tab). For more clues, think of what she likes to sleep in. If her outfit of choice is your T-shirt and boxers, she’s sporty. If she sleeps in a silk PJ set, she’s sensual. Look for a soft, satiny number trimmed in lace, which she says is both “feminine and seductive at the same time.” Translation: Your lover will feel like a goddess and you’ll get to enjoy the view. Apsan also says that a long silk nightgown will provide “instant glamour” – and if she’s daring, buy one with a long slit up the side.

A doctor. That way I can hide my body under baggy scrubs. A French maid, complete with thigh-high stockings and red lipstick. Strawberry Shortcake, and don’t forget the pigtails.

If you think she’ll be too embarrassed to wear any kind of lingerie, go with flowered boy shorts and a pretty cotton tee, which is conservative yet flirty. It’s all about figuring out your lover’s personality and making her feel appreciated and desired. “They’re more intimate, and you get better service,” she says. No matter where you are, finding a personal item for the woman in your life is no small task. You need one-onone attention and someone who truly understands what you’re looking for. And if you’re just too embarrassed to set foot inside a store, shop online.

9.Your new coworker is a Brad Pitt look-alike and single. After you’ve been introduced, how do you let him know you’re interested?

IM him a greeting. Mention that you’d love to explore the neighborhood he happens to live in. Lean against his desk and say, “You look like you work out.”

10.You’re meeting your guy for a date at a restaurant. How do you greet him?

“Hi, how are you?” “You smell good,” as you firmly kiss him on the lips. “That sweater looks great on you.”

LIGHTING TECHNIQUES FILL FLASH

for beautiful photos

Photoflex has solved one of the most difficult situations photographers are confronted with. How to add light to your model/subject or product without affecting the background. In this issue of SSI there are many examples of well lit models with saturated backgrounds. Models shot in the shade, that are well lit, and many images that were shot in bright sunlight because of time constraints (the worst lighting conditions). All filled in by Photoflex Triton Flash Systems.

Difficult lighting situations are made simple by the Triton Flash. First, determine the maximum shutter speed your camera will allow you to use for Flash. Use this as a starting point for your exposure. Next, use the camera meter to get the “correct” f-stop exposure for your background. To flash fill in the model, you can dial in your desired exposure, by varying the output of the Triton flash with the variable power control on the back of the unit. Simple, quick and predictable results.

Assignment: How to add light to a model without affecting the background?

ADVANCED

Be sure to vary your shutter speed. You can always slow the shutter speed down to achieve a wide variety of background effects. There are many TTL systems that produce very good “correct exposures” for your images. But, correct exposures for whom? The camera manufacture determines what is correct, not your creative vision. Using the method described, you can determine what a correct exposure is for your work. Experiment with dark backgrounds and light subjects, or, use the flash to fill in shadows so the sun does not overpower your model. Move the flash to the side to create dramatic side or back lighting.

You take charge and you determine what is correct. The results will become predictable for you and may let you create your signature look. Experiment with gels and light modifiers such as soft-boxes, or bouncing the light off a building or tree. Play, play, play! Controlling the output of a flash in the past was to move the flash, to and away from, the subject/model to get the correct exposure. Now, Photoflex has changed this method. All that is necessary is finding a convenient location (with in the range of the flash maximum output), and simply adjusting the output using the varying power control. Hint: you will have more flash out-put options if you can position the flash just outside of camera view (unless your teaching a lesson for Photoflex). The light will also be softer, and if needed, you will have more directional control. The Triton system also has the best battery system on the market. I have used it in many different environments, from the hot and dry desert, to the wet Jungles of Peru; Hundreds to thousands of quality flash exposures. Suggestion: Try not to use your flash devise on high or maximum power unless you need maximum power. The battery will last longer during the day, produce less heat, and the recycle time will be much quicker. For more details about using fill flash or any other Photoflex products, go to www.Photoflex.com and check out their Lighting School. BILLY PEGRAM - PHOTOGRAPHER
