a very bendy barbie

a promo photo for contortionist model Zlata from a pay sections of her webpage. currently she has a Christmas theme with a bendy candy cane. 

you'll need to join to see the rest of the set.

i always wonder about some of these models or performers as they are really talented but remain in their pay-site-ghetto. at least the fashion bloggers manage to get into industry. 

 i'd like to see some of them cross out of the fetish arena and apply their uniqueness to a mainstream film or something and masumi max's extra appearance in XXX no 2 doesn't count either.

Zlata rocks!
I believe she's from a former "behind the iron curtain" country, and there seem to be more than the average number of extreme contortionists from the region.
I would theorize that comes ffrom the old days of communism and olympic achievements. The people of the former USSR and her Warsaw Pact satellites had few avenues to pursue individual excellence, some things they took great pride in and were world class (or by themselves were on top) were aerospace, the olympics, and the ballet. I can only imagine people like Zlata, who came along too late for state sponsored reward,but was surely motivated by family and society to be the best Gumby around, are caught in between the past and future.
I've often wonsered if the positions she puts herself in are painful. I bet there is some discomfort, but it's a good kind of pain.

Incidentally, that model did just finish filming scenes for an upcoming movie...though as a body double rather than a star. But that still counts, no?
