Josiane Keller - friends on the bridge

ホテル Hotel – Alexander is back from the hospital, a successful outdoor poster photo shoot and Larry got hit on the nose

February 23, 2017

Alexander was allowed home from the hospital and everyone is majorly relieved. Apparently somehow he had come in touch with rat poison, maybe playing outside stuck something in his mouth when we were not looking or God knows. Who the hell would put rat poison outside is anyways a big question, but luckily so far […]

ホテル Hotel – Chiaki injures her shoulder and a no show photo shoot

February 17, 2017

At the last photo shoot Chiaki must have injured her left shoulder somehow hanging from that branch all morning, so she needed medical assistance and some rest before the next appointment: Josiane Keller “Chiaki injured her left shoulder” (2017) Josiane Keller “Chiaki injured her left shoulder – close-up” (2017) And this morning there was supposed […]

ホテル Hotel – Laila reading a magazine on the bed with a picture of her grandfather above

February 14, 2017

Whilst Starfish, Molly, Chiaki and Larry are out for photo-shootings and God knows what else Laila is doing her own thing, many revolving around Alexander, understandably so. Alexander just turned one year old and the family from Tehran sent gifts without end, which Laila gracefully accepted, not without several snarky comments about the very same […]

ホテル Hotel – group shot outside with kimonos – Vol. II

February 12, 2017

Volume II of the outdoor shot with kimonos. Molly was the undisputed star, of course, and everyone hurling around her. They wanted her to pose as if she was eating the forbidden fruit of the Garden of Eden, and she had to pose with some odd red fruit, but nobody knew for sure what kind […]

ホテル Hotel – group shot outside with kimonos – Vol. I

February 11, 2017

Things for the poster photo-shoot proceed slowly because of many reasons, really, one of them being that the rehearsals for “Was Wollen Sie von Mir?” are being held parallel, and in full swing, and it seems since day one everyone on is in fights with everyone, Vladimir and Jan for starters and now really the whole […]

ホテル Hotel – Making of one-year old Alexander

February 3, 2017

Alexander is one year old and has grown from an infant to a toddler. Interesting thought, as opposed to the other puppets, Billy, who has died and infant Alexander will be the only puppets so far I definitely cannot use in any shots any more, because according to to the logic of human life time […]

ホテル Hotel – Larry in a kimono 2

January 22, 2017

As it turns out, also Larry is modelling for that poster. That must be some poster! Since Larry’s kimono is expressing what he wants to express to his immediate surrounding (or to himself) there were so far no complaints from him about the job. And once more we find ourselves in the upstairs guest room […]

January 18, 2017

ホテル Hotel – costume test: Starfish in a kimono is looking like a girl

January 17, 2017

Once again Molly is out at rehearsals at “Cafe Leben” til late night and Starfish is in, waiting for her, watching TV, probably falling asleep over it. Apparently the poster he is to model for is a bigger deal, which means more money and that also means harder to say “no” to it, if one […]

Josiane Keller - costume fabric for Showa poster

ホテル Hotel – Molly is getting Starfish a modelling job

January 14, 2017

Possibly Molly has noticed Starfish’s devastation and tried to make the high waters smooth again. Apparently she has organized him a modelling job, it is only a one time thing, but a great opportunity, so Molly says anyways, it is in costume for a poster, Showa style, advertising a Japanese hotel. Starfish will be busy […]
