she needs a name!!!! It’s the give Kendell a new name contest

Kendell from our first shoot

Hi all, Several months back I posted  some pictures of Kendell in the pin up update section and since then we have done quit a few different themed shoots. A month ago the record company BUYSOUNDTRAX  called, and asked if I had anything scifi without being Star Trek or Star Wars that they could use in an up n coming scifi compilation movie and TV themed CD they were putting together,,, I said no but I could shoot something…. This happened the just before Comicon so I called Kendell about modeling for the shoot and then the quest for a look & an outfit began.. It was great timing to be able to start looking at the con, the Steam punk look was every where and was the basis for the inspiration. There were vendors for clothes and effects on every corner and  a booth called Pendragon Costumes, caught my eye… Many hours were spent there going through all they had with one of the gals who worked their. Her name was Kyriss and man did she know her stuff. The booth was so cool and full of every kind of incredible outfits you could think of. Defiantly a steam punks dream store. After all was said and done I walked away with two leather tops, they were separates but by putting them together on one hanger, Kendell’s look was born. Once home Kendell and I figured out the rest of the outfit, high boots black swimsuit bottoms, a big gun belt and a painted black Star Wars toy gun from Wallmart.  We met at the sand dunes in Lake LA for the shoot and when Kendell was all decked out everyone’s jaw dropped!!! WOW she transformed from the dirt bike queen to the goddess of the galaxy!!! She looked so awesome and she really got into the character for the pictures!!! We did two shoots over to days at two different locations and sent the pics off to Mark Banning who was the art director for the CD. He had the entire package done in about two hours and sent over the rough layout and Kendell had about six or seven pics in the CD…. I was so happy for her and what a cool CD it’s going to be too… tons of cool music they are putting on it. After the fact we were looking at the pictures and thought her character needed a name..  We thought it would be fun to do more shoots like a live action comic but we are stuck on what to call her. Neither of us have come up with anything good so far so we thought it would be cool to have a blog contest to help name Kendell’s alter ego. So have a look at the pics and give it your best shot. The winner will receive two signed prints by Kendell and an invite to come along on one of the shoots. OK then have fun n can’t wait to see what you all come up with.

    Aurora Nova (in Astronomical terms would sort of mean explosion of light)

    This is very cool! I would like to eventually work for a record company in Album/Merchandise Design. I love music! And I love drawing and photographing.

        I just looked at their website. Very cool! I like their Handmade section. I’ll definitely take them into consideration when I start officially job searching (one more year of college still, phew)

        Thanks for the suggestion!

    Name? What’s in a name? 😛

    Seriously, I’ve got nothing. I think Kendall’s sheer beauty and the absolute awesomeness of that outfit and those pictures is overriding my thought process. WOW, those are fantastic pictures, she looks absolutely beautiful (even more so than usual, which is saying a LOT.) 😀

    Wow. I usually don’t care so much for girls with guns. But I think these are the most gorgeous pictures you ever posted, John. And the category “gorgeous pictures” includes starships.

    For the first name, I’d choose something Greek (Greek always has a pleasant ring to it and sounds spacy too):
    Artemis (goddess of the hunt)
    Arista (“the best”)

    And if you’d like to append a last name, Kendell, I’d go for something Nordic or perhaps Russian:
    Sokolov (falcon)

    Sorry, all I can provide is a name kit. I’m not good at creating character names. I only recommend to avoid an alliteration such as in “Paula Potshot” because it sounds cheap.

    Bella Starr


    Adorra Simone

    Fidelia Sampson

    Evelyn Flynn

    As a writer I’m usually pretty good at creating character names, but like you, John, Kendell’s transformation has left me a bit awestruck. Still, I’d hate myself if I didn’t give it a go, so …

    Pandora Smith

    Valkyrie Stryker

    Kestrel Cannon

    That about covers it for me. If none of these make the cut, then I’m putting an early vote in for Ans’ suggestion “Aurora Nova.” It suggests beauty and power, something Kendell’s got scads of in those photos! Best of luck to everyone!

  14. August 12, 2011 at 5:04 am

    How about Mrs. Suddery?

    Just a thought…

    While I don’t have any ideas on a name (at least, none that are good enough to mention), I thought I’d leave a comment here anyways, for a different reason. Mr. Eaves, if you could send me an email (I believe you have my address), I would appreciate it. I’d send one to your gmail address but I seem to recall that you check a different one more often.

    It’s just, well, I have an idea I want to share with you, and I’d rather not post it here.

    If you don’t have my address, reply to this comment and I’ll post it here. I get so much blasted spam that I don’t think it’ll make any difference!
