Lipstick Checkmate: The Play Like a Girl Trailer February 15, 2011

Posted by Jennifer in : art,books,chess,feminism , trackback

The Play Like a Girl! Tactics by 9 Queens (Mongoose Press, 2011) trailer is live.

Even though I’m hardly a make-up fiend, I was able to find 70% of the pieces in mostly abandoned make-up bags and vanity drawers.

Finding sixteen of one item was the main problem, but lipstick was the clear aesthetic and conceptual choice. A thirty dollar Chanel lipstick, purchased because I cannot afford anything else Chanel, co-mingled with one buck steals at the drugstore bargain bin. A pawn is still just a pawn.

Enjoy some stills from the shoot and pick up a copy of the book on 9queens.org, amazon, Mongoosepress or USCF Sales.

I love it when women “own” their gender!! It’s so good to see so many strong females, women who can embarrass me, a male, at so many things. Okay, here comes a stupid male comment I just seem to be compelled to make for real good reason: I love Jennifer’s red hair and blue eyes!! :D
