A $500 Cover Pose
I consider myself mostly retired from the cover pose game these days. But when Regina Yao of The Pixel Project asked me to help out with one of their fundraising drives, how could I say no?
A very generous donor contributed $500 to The Pixel Project for their work to end violence against women. For that donation, they got to choose a cover for me to try to duplicate. They decided to go with The Selection, by Kiera Cass.

Thanks as always to my wife Amy, who took the photo and helped me get the pose right. Which included positioning a large exercise ball between my legs to get the poofy-skirt effect…

I’m reminded that ‘bustle’ and ‘bustling’ make for very strange linguistic bedfellows.
Marvelous effort AND beard!

Masterful. The scarf/beard combination transforms this from a mundane attempt to sublime. Just needs a couple more mirrors. Or some foil on the walls.

Way to go! Another illuminating effort.

Thank you for your willingness to help; this pose isn’t as bad as some of your old ones! However, the angle of your arm makes it difficult to tell whether that is, in fact, your beard, or some Steve Carell-level chest hair 😉

Jim is a cover posing supermodel. He’s retired and moved onto other work, but occasionally comes out of retirement for a good cause.
He’s basically the Heidi Klum of gender-swapped SFF cover posing.
