Greta’s Pics for Skepticon Calendar 2012


Wanna see some atheist dirty pictures?

When I was at Skepticon 3 earlier this month, I got to do a photo shoot for the 2012 Skepticon pin-up calendar. I prepared for the shoot for weeks; I agonized over what to wear and what props to bring; I even bought a new Dark Garden corset and rushed the order so I could have it in time. (I had to keep reminding myself that this was, in fact, a speaking engagement/ conference at which I was incidentally going to be doing a photo shoot, not a photo shoot at which I was incidentally going to be speaking at a conference.)

All the planning was totally worth it. The shoot was hugely fun: the photographer was professional and friendly and really knew his stuff, the Skepticon volunteers were helpful and supportive, and I have never in my life had so much fun being underdressed in a freezing basement.

And I think the photos turned out incredible. It is now confirmed: I am officially, at age 48, hotter than I have ever been in my life. I’m just sayin’, is all.

The 2012 calendars won’t be available until next year… but you can still get calendars for 2011, featuring either dudes or dudettes. (If you get both, you get the special bisexual fencesitter’s discount.) All proceeds go to support Skepticon and help keep it going and free of charge.

And in the meantime, enjoy this preview! Click photos to enlarge.

Do not fuck with me. This basement is where I take people who try to tell me about Pascal’s Wager.

    Beautiful, moody shot! You look wonderful, and that corset is excellent!
    Go you! You’ve been such an inspiration to me, and now this. It’s incredibly (dare I say it) uplifting.

    A great way to lash out at irrationality, and to whip up interest in skepticism. And your photo is especially hard to beat.

    I love this! A calendar with pretty people on it showing skin is nice, but if they are people I know that’s an order of magnitude better.

    So, Greta, I’ve been meaning to say this to you for a while, but I think the time is right… have you never considered that you might as well believe in God because, hey, if you’re wrong you have nothing to lose but if you’re right, you have everything to gain! I’m sure this is a thoroughly novel and shocking idea to you, so if you’d like to discuss it further…
    Okay, so I did the obvious thing. :-)

    Jack (though good username), you forgot the heavy breathing. You’re supposed to be posting Pascal’s Wager one-handed.

    Say Greta… You should live your life and try to make the world a better place for your being in it, whether or not you believe in god. If there is no god, you have lost nothing and will be remembered fondly by those you left behind. If there is a benevolent god, he will judge you on your merits and not just on whether or not you believed in him.
    Oh yeah, Jack, I just played The Atheist’s Wager card. The basement is mine, all mine, bwahahahahaha!
