Behind the Scenes at the Team Atomic 2011 Pinup Calendar Photo Shoot

This weekend's photo shoot for the Team Atomic 2011 Pinup Calendar was, in one word, amazing. It never ceases to amaze me how lucky I have been to find such a generous, talented, fun, funny, and creative group of people, all of whom are willing to lend those considerable gifts to Moveable Feast. From the volunteers who set us up with coffee and snacks, to the hair stylists from NV Salon Collective and the makeup artists from Kiss-n-Makeup, to the mad photography skills of Mike Lee, to the staff of Moveable Feast and the owner of Atomic Books (who served as models), to my own beautiful, confident, wonderful teammates who spent a ride-perfect Sunday afternoon inside, in heels and fishnets, this project is proving to be a demonstration of the power of community.

Picnic pinups stretch their necks between takes--and try not to drink all the champagne!
To those directly involved, thank you; to the rest of you, get ready for some Atomic Bombshells!

Feed, fight, foster...fantasize!

Team Atomic is always looking for new ways to raise funds for Moveable Feast while having a good time and entertaining the people. This year, we've come up with our sassiest idea yet: the 2011 Cycling Pinup Calendar

The calendar features the members of Team Atomic in classic pinup poses, each with a cycling theme, such as:

... Thirsty cyclist? Luckily there's a pinup on hand to fill his water bottle--with champagne! 
... Broken -down cyclist? Happily there's a pinup with a full set of tools to get him going again!
...And many more classic pinup poses!

The calendar will be shipped in time for holiday gift-giving. What better way to show your friends and family that they are loved than with cute cyclists baring it all (or, well, some of it...) for charity? Team Atomic is donating 100% of the purchase price (minus shipping costs) to Moveable Feast. Local merchants will be helping us sell the calendar (details are still being worked out), or you can order it online here! Pre-orders are being accepted now. Use the link in the left column of this site to place your order!
