The next Big Thing… “Tentacle Grape” (?)

Heeeeey.. and it’s a new shoot.  It’s the hentai tentcle shoot I’ve been planning forever.. Annnnd…   the results are… well… allright I guess.
So a little background first.  I have been planning this shoot for more than a year (actually more like since at least Nov ’16) and I think it was about a year ago that I first bought the pink pool noodles and sometime after that when I drizzled silicone caulk all over them, to simulate alien cum without using something that was actually sticky and a real mess.


And I sorta hemmed and hawed about what sort of outfit I wanted to use, and if it was going to really be any sort of clear anime character or something.  Anyway, I couldn’t quite get over the logistics of how I was going to self-shoot this since I usually shoot my own pictures with my camera-with-a-flip-out-screen-and-wireless-remote setup which even though these cameras are going on a decade old, it’s a process that actually works well for me.
And so I finally set things up in my studio though I had to make all sorts of compromises in the set, I had to mount the whole “couch” thingy made up of pink round cushions leftover from the Uranus set (which look like giant Tums if you ask me) up on blocks so that I could get the right angles without showing the floor.  So this is what the whole set up looked like out of frame.  Yeah, I brought out EVERY possible tripod and stand I had to hold these things.

And these things all had dowels on the end of them where the dildos would go,  glooped with silicone cum strings or whatever you’d call them. Probably the first thing you’re asking is why didn’t I get someone to help me on this shoot?  Well, more often than not, I’m ready to shoot when I can’t get people to help me, and I have people available to help me when I’m not ready.  And as it was, I had waited a month to get someone to help me shoot video of “Let Them Eat Cock” (coming soon), so once I decided I was ready for this shoot, well, I did it.

Anyway, back to the outfit.   My first idea was to use this old purple latex catsuit, but then I started getting some exciting ideas for anime inspired costumes.  And then I scaled it back since I didn’t know if shooting on all these pink tentacles and silicone cum was going to be a disaster or not.  So I decided the outfit wasn’t as crucial and there was only one way to find out if I could shoot this myself, and that was to run with what I had. The black and purple collar was a new thing I made for this, and the purple hair and elf ears were things that a wonderful fan got for me off my Amazon Wish List.  And the catsuit?  Well, it did have some problems so maybe It was better I got to use it one last time.  I’m not sure what you’d call this, but sometimes old latex clothing gets weird dark spots and thin spots on it as it ages.  And then it was extremely baggy in many places which looked terrible.  The only way I got it to work was a lot of photoshop work, which was fine.


But in general, I got some pretty good pictures, which wasn’t quite so terrible from a self timer even with my hands often wrapped up in tentacles.  I did the two camera set up where I set one camera low for low angles, and the other at the highest I could.  And eventually the catsuit ripped and came off, which was fine because it gave me a nice variety of photos.
So in conclusion, this shoot worked out pretty well, but there’s a lot going on and I thinkI need to get some different lights that, shall we say, don’t quite bathe everything in light.  Or I  just need to experiment with less light or targeted light, or strip down the idea to the bare essentials.  Which means that there is probably another, and better tentacle shoot in the future.  As for the name, “Tentacle Grape”?  Well..  let’s see if there’s an uproar over that, or not.  Since there was a lot of purple in the catsuit, well the working title stuck.

The whole set of 154 (and I was amazed I got that many useable shots) just went up at www.tara-ts.com

Periwinkle and Pink

Which about sums up my newest upcoming shoot.   Something simple to tie you over until the next Big Thing comes down the pike.  It seems like it’s taken forever for Spring to come but now that it’s warmed up, I’m working on a lot of fairly complicated shoots!
But yeah, this is just a simple shoot cobbled together from existing costume pieces and stuff.  I dont know why I never paired this periwinkle corset with the pink hat until now but they do go together very well indeed.

Add to it a nice pink chastity device that matches (thank you someone for getting this off my Amazon Wish List!) and it all works together quite nicely!I’m still editing the photos and the full set of over 150 photos should go up on my site by mid week.  Then it’s on to the first of my big crazy ideas!

Been feeling cruddy since Easter, but still updating video though!

So round the Monday after Easter I guess I caught the cold or flu that had been going around.  Why is it that it’s always at the tail end of the season when it starts to warm up, you get walloped with a bad cold?
So that’s why I haven’t been that active on social media, or even my ManyVids site.  Actually the first half of April has been dismal (income wise) in comparison to the second half of March.  That’s a little depressing but just tells me that my sales on that site are a direct reflection of how hard I am promoting and updating my ManyVids store.

Anyway, so I’ve caught up with the video updates here, updating most of the older stuff (standard def) and upgrading “Cotton Candyass”, “Flowering Tara” and “Sleazy Rider” to HD versions.

I do think though, that I need to get a brand new shoot of something done this week.. Also, I have video that I need to edit of “Jizzoline Queen” which of course is not a re-release of something you’re seen before..

So keep your eyes peeled this week! And check the video section for more videos as I add them.

Massive huge video update/upgrade in the works

You may have noticed a lot of activity in my twitter or tumblr feed about videos for sale up on ManyVids and Clips4Sale

Yes, I’ve been reworking a lot of stuff that was previously released in pretty crappy resolution and quality.  I’ve pretty much been chained to my computers for the better part of a week, which is good, I’ve actually gotten a LOT done.

There is also some new stuff out there, and many of the new edits are longer than what was previously available.

And yes, they are all coming to www.taraemory.com.  I just wanted to get my Many Vids site up and running and actually making some money first before committing myself to sorting out the complete mess that is the video section of taraemory.com.

Please don’t feel like you’re getting the short end of the stick, it’s just that on those video sites, it’s fairly easy to update those pages and upload those videos through a browser, but to update my video page on my members site its far more fiddly, going through a program and making buttons and all that. (although I’ll try to re-use what I can)

So I wanted to get to a certain point with getting enough new material ready so that I have to update the members video area less often.  What will be going up on this site is the first half of a total overhaul, the second half to go online by the end of March.

Suffice to say, I’m basically throwing out ALL the current videos on my site, with a few exceptions:

  1. Valentines Day Every Day
  2. High Rise Hooker
  3. Sweet Tart Fuckdoll
  4. National Pornographic
  5. Another Slice of Cherry Pie
  6. Domestic Doll
  7. Pigtailed Fucktoy
  8. Pearls and Polkadots
  9. Strawberries and Cream
  10. Coquette Cumpot
  11. Cherry Bomb
  12. Slut in the Butt
  13. Minty Fresh
  14. Sugar Rush

All these are currently in HD on my site, but I may replace a few of the them with better versions as I think a few might have been exported with a lousy bitrate.

Also, all the .mov and .m4v formats are going bye bye.  It seems like .mp4 is the way to go.  The HD clips are in 1280 x 720 many are in 1920 x 1080 and I can’t tell the difference. My camera is a 1080i so when I output them at the bigger size, I get some interlacing that you can see that you can’t see on the 720 versions.  Some actually look better in 720 than in 1080 but probably all the new ones I’m going to make will be in 1080.

Speaking of new videos there are also 2 new videos going up that you haven’t seen before!

  • 15. Revolutionary Whore
  • 16. Carousel Rider.

Actually Revolutionary Whore is leftover from a few years back but never got released, because I was waiting around to do a whole DVD of Marie Antionette type stuff.   But then I got new boobs so this scene won’t fit in with that project, and it got forgotten about.  Also this scene is just on a swing, and that proposed project was going to have a script and everything, so best to release that old scene now.

I also have just shot video of Jizzoline Queen, which I will edit as soon as I can.  I also plan to shoot video of Let Them Eat Cock as that set is still up and running.

Ok, here’s where it gets complicated.  As you can see I have a lot of work ahead of me.

  • 17. Sweet Lolita
  • 18. Aviatrix
  • 19. Tara Overboard
  • 20. Pot O Gold
  • 21, Cherry RideI have gone and re-edited #17-21 in HD from the original footage.   This is a fair amount of work but sometimes I can whip out a couple of new edits in a day.  If I’m lucky, I just use the same Edit Decision List in Final Cut Pro, but I swap out the old SD captured footage for new HD clips using the same name and I just re-render it.  I’m actually surprised it’s this easy to do.Anyway, I still have to do the same thing with these following videos:
  • 22.  Big Top Tara
  • 23 . CandyLand
  • 24. Smoking Sexpot
  • 25. Showgirl
  • 26. Flowering Tara
  • 27. Diamonds are Hard
  • 28. Cotton Candyass
  • 29. Pony Play
  • 30. Smoke Latex
  • 31. Blue Rubber
  • 32. Cream of hearts
  • 33. Tight Spender
  • 34. Room Service
  • 35. Sleazy Rider
  • 36. Warrior Princess
  • 37. Throbbing valentine
  • 38 Gift

But since those will take me some time, i went and on a different computer, i’ve gone and tackled the older material, that was shot in standard def (720 x 480).   But probably the versions of these that are on the members site were even worse resolution that that, so i have gone and made 720 x 480 mp4s of these, using a  fairly high bitrate so they don;t look like crap.  Actually on one of them I tried blowing it up to 1280×720 HD and it looked exactly the same as looking at a 720 x 480 movie blown up, so there’s no way to “upscale” these.  These new versions of these videos are -as good as they are ever going to get.

  • 39. Easter Best
  • 40. Steeplechase Slut
  • 41. Snow Princess
  • 42. Dainty Dots
  • 43. Stripes and Garters (i tried an HD blow up of this, and it wasn’t worth it)
  • 44. valentine boudoir
  • 45. Filthy Habits (now in full 22 minute version)
  • 46. Animal instinct (called latex in the jungle on those other sites, because “animal” was a banned word!)
  • 47. Periwinkle Satin
  • 48. Brocade Burlesque
  • 49. Cocktoberfest
  • 50. Daisy Dick
  • 51. Peacock Goddess
  • 52. Bubblegum Broadway
  • 53. Ice Follies
  • 54. Birthday girl
  • 55. Pink Polka Plushie
  • 56. Polka Hearts
  • 57. Rawhide

So yeah, those videos are already done over, and the new as-high-quality-as-possible versions will go up on the next update  I still have to do the following ones though.  I can whip out several of these new mp4s in a day as i don’t have to re-edit them or anything.

  • 58. Naughty Elf
  • 59. Smoking sexpot (2004)
  • 60. Ahoy Tara
  • 61 Rouge Roses
  • 62 Valentine Tart
  • 63 Lucky (2003)
  • 64 Zebra Ponygirl
  • 65 Cleotara
  • 66 Little Ho Peep
  • 67 Cherry Pie 2003
  • 68 mouse trap
  • 69 nurses
  • 70 Tutu
  • 71 Mardi Gras
  • 72 Candystripe
  • 73 Pink and Black Dots
  • 74 Black Rubber ballet Boots
  • 75 picnic
  • 76 Amsterdam
  • 77 toy soldier
  • 78 feather tail
  • and whatever else were dvd extras of bonuses or things that I discover while I’m digging.

… and I’m sure I missed a few.   I’m sure there’s another 10 I’ve forgotten about, and since I have a few in the pipeline (and also some scenes I will release from the Uranus project), that will bring the total amount up to around 100 videos.  Also, when I made the previous versions of these scenes, I sometimes made them shorter than what was available on my DVD. Aat the time i was concerned that the video clips might cut into DVD sales. Of course, nowadays, that’s a moot point.  All these scenes are as long as they can be. In some cases like “Filthy Habits” they have grown to over 20 minutes of wanktrance.z

I also found some old footage of a scene I shot in the “Drink Me” Alice in Wonderland outfit, where I’m in that tiny little dollhouse room.  Yes, that was from like 2007 and it never got released. I was actually going to do a whole movie around that scene and it didn’t happen, so really, that scene should come to light.

Yeah, yeah, I know what some of you are saying.. Why am I even bothering with this old stuff?  Well, because anyone who is a new or long time member should get access to the highest quality versions of all my videos.   Also, I get more than a few complaints from people who join my site and say that the videos look like crap.  Which is true, a lot of the stuff on the bottom of the videos page DO look like crap.

So get everything looking as good as it can, and then let’s move FORWARD with regular NEW video updates!.  But I just need to clear out some space on my hard drives and clear out all the old before moving on with the new.  Yeah, I dropped the ball with the video section and yes, i should have been making video constantly over the last 10 years, but i wasn’t as productive as I should have been.  I can’t change the past, but I can get it looking as good as possible so that I can get more productive in the future.

And yeah, .mov and .m4v files totally suck.   I don’t know what I was thinking with those formats.

So watch the video page on my site for updates!  I will be chucking virtually everything on there, and replacing it with new versions, though for the time being, the standard def  720x 480 versions of videos #23- #38 will stay up and more slowly get replaced since I have to re-edit them.  But 1-21 are all done in HD, and 39-57 in highest SD quality and are ready to upload as soon as I tweak the pages themselves.   Probably videos listed 58 and up on this list, the old versions will just vanish until I put up newer mp4s of them as soon as I can.  I’m not sure if I will keep the super old webcam clips from like 2009 though.  Maybe it’s time they go, since they also look like crap anyway.

So in a nutshell, whatever you’ve previously downloaded from my site, well, you might as well just throw it in the trash and download the new ones (especially when we get the HD versions of  #22-38).

And then once I get everything looking as good as it can I’m going to go after the tube sites like a ton of bricks.  Ironically what is kind of funny about doing this is that the tiny crunchy 320 x 240 versions are more than welcome to stay on those lousy pirate sites!  You guys are getting the good stuff (which , it goes without saying, please don’t post them on the tube sites!)

So yeah, even though there’s only a handful of new stuff, this is necessary to get this big project out of the way before really moving on to more new stuff!  And Uranus, that’s happening, bear with me. It will be worth the wait..

PS  Actually one way to tell which video clips are newly made is that they will be the ones that have animated gifs like these.  That’s probably the easiest way to tell

New Shoot: Chastity Circus

So I’ve been pretty quiet the last week or so as I’ve been pretty deeply ensconced in my office room doing lots of video editing and outputting video.  I’ll make the next blog post about that (because it’s a pretty big project), but in the meantime, yes, I also did a new shoot a few days ago.

So there might be a fine line between the sublime and the ridiculous.  Maybe I crossed it?  Maybe I don’t care if I did!  And if I did,  I crossed it in 10 inch heels.

So I did this shoot on the 12th of March, which was the same day I also did a video shoot of “Jizzoline Queen” (coming eventually to a video update).  As it is, my makeup was still flawless, my studio was warm, and I had bits and pieces of outfits in pink and black, so I threw them together and came up with this totally new outfit.

I have to admit, that more often than not, I get TOO obsessed with details and have a  hard time seeing that I can usually make a concept out of bits and pieces of other outfits.    Sometimes I get in that place where “Perfect is the enemy of good” and what happens is that nothing happens instead.
The only new bit I made for this costume was the hat, which I whipped up in a half hour.  And the ten? eleven? inch high oxford boots I had for like a year and almost forgot that I even had them, but it’s perfect for this outfit.  The hot pink clown wig was something that I bought to make into puffs, but after seeing how well I liked “Diamond Disco” I decided that ridiculous and over-the-top was what this outfit needed.

Oh, and what is it that I’m sitting on? It’s what’s left of the Captain’s chair from Uranus Needs Shemales/Up Uranus (whatever it will be called).  And yeah, I could have done like full clown makeup, but maybe that would have been a step beyond a step too far.  As it is, this is a nice shoot for those of you (and yeah, I know, it’s not ALL of you), who like the pink hentai craziness.  But hey, if you don’t like one of my shoots, just wait a while, you might LOVE the next one!
But yeah.  This shoot shows you all that really, I have no excuse for like being able to whip off a couple of shoots a week really.  Yeah, I know.. The idea of doing a few shoots a week (when I know that you’re lucky if you see 2 or 3 shoots a month) sounds impossible.  Actually, the spring is the best time for my productivity, and it’s the sweet spot between too cold to heat my studio, and so hot under the lights that no amount of A/C will keep the sweat off my face.  Truth is, my studio building is a little too big to economically heat and cool, and means that there are long dry spells in the winter where I can’t produce much out there.  Oh but once spring comes.. Watch out.  If I really , really really get my shit together (and like I said, I’m preparing another post about what else is going on), then I could probably shoot all my content for the year in a span of a few months.

But, first things first. I have a mountain of video to handle.  I admit. I have dropped the ball on my video production, and I’m in the beginning steps to picking up that ball and smashing it through the neighbor’s plate glass window.

Stay tuned for the next post, and what’s to come.  But for now, for my members, enjoy “Chastity Circus”.

Travel to the post-apocalyptic future with “Jizzoline Queen”

And oh hey, here’s the final result of the other shoot I did, when we had that little heat wave in February (come to think of it, it’s also about 60˚ F out today too).

I had the rusty motorcycle for a while and set up with bits of the set for months, but the original outfit I designed was very different, and not quite right.  It was  more “Mad Moxxi” and far more colorful, and less brown and steampunk.  So that sort of became it’s own concept for a later shoot and that left me with having to come up with something different for this shoot.

Its the old Aviatrix corset and belt with some very different hair, and other different accessories as well.  The hair puffs or whatever you’d call them were pretty fun to make.  They’re made out of the decades old red  bob wigs I had from when I first started out.  So yeah, I guess I can’t ever throw anything away as it might get used as raw materials later.

Of course, the other new bit is the lovely lovely chastity cage that features in this shoot.  I know we’ll be seeing a lot more of this, and for this shoot, it was fitting addition.
This might be one of my favorite recent shoots, and the total tally of pictures in this set is well over 200.  The full set goes up on my site this weekend!  Gonna keep the momentum going, and see what new spin I can make on some old outfits next!

Let’s travel to the past with “Let them Eat Cock!”

So my newest shoot is up, called “Let them eat cock!”


It’s essentially the same outfit as a shoot I did back in 2010 called “Masquerade”, but with panniers and some refinement to the outfit and set.   Oh, and I really, really do fill out the corset much better than 7 years ago!  For those of you who miss my old boobs, you really don’t have to look any further than comparing the above picture to 2010 and you can see just how much better proportioned the new ones are.


Actually, you can see the difference in my forehead/brow lift and the improvements in my makeup skills and of course, those ridiculously large lips (yeah, I know some of you don’t like them, but well, I feel they balance out the other aspects of my face).


Oh and the urethral beads are back! Plus a really amazing but obviously not 18th century black dildo. (Who knows, maybe it  is period?)

All in all, a really nice outfit and nice shoot and I’m happy this outfit has held up well over the years.  The entire set of 224 pictures just went up today!

Back in form: “Flamenco” and “Heidi Ho”

Yay, there’s new stuff on my site.  First off I finally did a shoot in that Flamenco outfit, and for better or worse, I decided the background just needed to be a nicely appointed room.

It was one of those sort of things where I could have built a crazy, over the top Spanish-inspired set, but yeah.. not like you all wanted to wait another year for that shoot to happen.  So here it is, and the results came out fine.Honestly, good shoots are really more about how sexy the energy is, not the stupid little details that often delay the shoots from happening.  I have a few other shoots  and crazy outfits in the pipeline, but I always forget that I can just tweak and do new versions of old favorites and I doubt you’re all going to complain about that!So that’s how I came up with the other new shoot, “Heidi Ho!”, which is really just the Cocktoberfest outfit from way way back, though I did have to alter it to allow my new, larger tits to fit better.  Or in this case, just be exposed more.

For those of you longing for some more normal, less “futanari fuckdoll” type stuff, these two shoots should scratch that itch.  Sure, there are changes that you can see in my face and body, but they’re mostly for the better, right?
And who knows, maybe the next shoot I do will be really stripped down and the complete antithesis of the whole bimbo thing.  You never know what I’m going to do next!

So, I also went on a Vegas trip, that had nothing to do with AVN this year, but if I write about that, I wil save that for another post.

Back into the studio, for whatever is next!  Might be pink, might be not!

Two classic Christmas shoots upscaled, and put into a “Ultimate Xmas Collection” gallery.

So I hemmed and hawed a bit about doing a holiday themed shoot, and in the end I decided that I couldn’t really improve on any of the previous Christmas shoots I had done in the past.  Looking at many of those shoots, i noticed they really needed the upscaling treatment.  So, I’ve gone and remastered “Naughty Elf” from 2005 and “The Island of Misfit Sex Toys” from 2008.  The change in size is most noticable in “Naughty Elf” going from something like 900 pixels to 2000 pixels in the largest dimension.  For “Misfit Toys” that also had a similar jump in resolution.
Both shoots may have grown in size as I picked some different pictures that I might had rejected the first time around.    And then I have made a seperate page for all the Christmas shoots, easily accessible.  And as with all the upscaled shoots, they are easily noticable on the gallery pages by the much larger rollover button to access the gallery.  Eventually I will get to all of the galleries, and the biggest jump in quality will be probably for the 2005-2009 galleries.  Later on, I did start inching up the size, so I’m not sure if it’s worth re-mastering the ones where the current finals are like 1700 or 1800 pixels right now.

But anyway, it’s a nice treat to see these classic shoots in far more detail.  Although now looking at them, I can see that I really could have re-shot either outfit with my bigger tits and better makeup skills, and yeah, I could have outdone them easily today!  But eh..  let’s look forward instead of looking back, and I’m more excited about whatever shoot is coming next.  But until that comes out, let’s get this dose of classic Tara!

Two shoots in one: “Diamond Disco”

So I’m finally getting around to that backlog of outfits that I’ve made this year but hadn’t shot in.  This outfit was made for AVN last January and got some nice visibility at Montreal Fetish Weekend but only got to shoot in just now.

This concept had a working title along the line of something like “Rhinestone Vegas”.
But few months back, I purchased this really over the top blonde afro wig, and well, that also worked for this outfit too.

And then “Rhinestone Vegas” didn’t fit as well as something like “Diamond Disco”, even though I’m not really pushing any other 70’s themes anywhere in it.  Anyway, what’s in a name anyway?  And rather than spin each variaton off into different shoots (that being the case I’d probably do different backgrounds), I just included both versions in this one.

So if you’re not too keen on the blue haired hentai look, there’s always the funky variation. Hope you like both of them!  Let me know which version is hotter!
