Glad you have a path forward! Being a content creator can be rewarding but also so very frustrating at times. Keep at it!

Hi Everyone! These last two weeks we had Ashley Jay shoot for us. More on her in a separate post. First I'd like to announce a FREE product, a 2023 calendar I made in Photoshop. Because I couldn't get a physical one done, I played around with Photoshop Elements' calendar maker and whipped up a decent (for a first attempt!) one. Because there's new characters missing due to the recent hiccup with Mike, I had to repeat Supergirl Matrix a few times, but different models, so I'm offering this one free!.

It contains a lovely heroine for each month, and is a printable PDF. Here's a sample of the cover, and for March 2023:

We had the lovely Ashley Jay shoot two sets for us on the 23rd and 24th. Ashley is a lovely, curvy buxom Barbie doll, (all natural AFAIK) she was awesome as Powergirl and Superwoman!

I know Brad was excited for this, so I'm rushing the post production on the photosets, as we speak. Mike's on his holidays, so I don't know what the videos are like yet.

Set 1 - Your Super Barbie Doll!

Ashley ACED being Superwoman for us! She definitely puts the Super and Woman into Superwoman! Our skintight suit clung to her womanly shape for dear life! As we use this suit for two characters, to differentiate this suit we use the following criteria:

Young blonde model = Superwoman
Brunette/blonde mature model = SuperMa'am

Ashley looked GORGEOUS, and very seductive! I think the over-applied look on her lipstick made her lips look even more delicious. She shows off the suit, her womanliness, and even bends a crowbar for you!

What red blooded male (or bi female!) wouldn't want her to swoop in and save them?

Ashley - Set 2 - Busty Badass Powergirl Dining Out!

Ashley was back with us again, shooting her Powergirl set with us, looking powerful, sexy, and seductive! She gives a crystal of Kryptonite a lucky day, too! Again, this set was shot in the studio in the Midlands, in a retro Diner setup. Imagine meeting this Power babe when eating out!

In this set our photographer gives her Kryptonite! It has no effect, she just laughs and naughtily uses it as a toy, between her big girls! Lucky Kryptonite! Powergirl may be Supergirl in an alternate universe, but Kryptonite only hurts her blue, yellow and red wearing counterpart!

Roadmap

I didn't get chance to really do much on the site in November and December as work was hectic. Amazon required us to do 50 hours minimum for Peak, so I sneaked in bits here and there amongst work and home life, getting ready for Xmas. I did the calendar, and am ready to start launching some videos.

The site will get a kick in the backside this year. All my backlog of content will be released, and I have new characters and costumes lined up, as well as Batgirl who wasn't shot December. In January and February Kelly Hathaway will be modelling her, and doing Wonder Woman for us, and then Poetic Minx will do the Supergirl peril shoot that we planned for Nicky last year, who let Mike and me down twice. I'm releasing Stephanie's Supergirl Matrix reporter transformation set next, though, within the next week :)

Hey guys,

I'm still going, the site is still active. My new laptop had to go in for warranty repair, apparently the SSD was one of those in the news in the tech world that was suffering SMART health issues.

I'm not going to be posting much here anymore, as nobody seems interested, and I'm kinda fed up with feeling like I'm talking to myself, there's only two members who regularly keep in contact. There's a Facebook page, and the site itself has a blog, so I'm just going to post there. I need to cut down on the amount of social sites I post on as some get forgotten.

I'm still not getting feedback, and nobody is leaving reviews on store pages. I think this may be the wrong audience, even though you're all into what JonX was doing, we're the same thing (with more realistic costumes and correct logos), and I have a comic in the works too.

I have a lot of sales from here which I'm grateful, massively so, but clicking a Thanks button doesn't tell me anything, really.

Facebook Page: www.facebook.com/groups/947250439135231

Site Blog: superhero-academy.co.uk/blog/

Site Updates Page: superhero-academy.co.uk/updates/

To be honest the whole thing is a massive expense with a lot of logistics, and once the content in the backlog is done I'm not sure if I'll continue. It was an experiment, that just isn't making money. Maybe if I get more free time I'll focus on the geek/geekess side and shoot myself, instead of the more expensive glamour using a third party photographer, but right now my mind is unsure. It was meant to just be a personal thing, but I figured sharing it by selling it to the superhero scene would help pay for the costs.

This is probably the same reason PSW isn't as active anymore, or JonX. Life gets in the way. Bills are going up, the economy is uncertain. The AI generation and deepfake stuff going on at the moment worries me too.

The work I like has a male-female interaction. With your current photos, I can only see female models, which is not enough for me, and I will not buy it

Your efforts are certainly laudable. And your costumes and models are outstanding. It's clearly something about which you care and in which you invest time, money, and passion. All of those are finite things. And when making something the caters to the niche-iest of niche audiences, reaching a break-even point is doubly difficult.

Add in to that that the community itself is fractured into peril/non-peril and it makes things even harder. I'm sorry for your discouraging results. Truly. There are too few creators here and as a website and community we've proven discouragingly bad at encouraging them. There's a core group of perhaps a dozen or so members who handle about 90% of the comments and are engaged and active and enthusiastic. And I know that's not enough to keep up a creator's spirits or income.

The fact is that if you're going to create empowered/non-peril superheroine content, it has to be a passion project. Very few people can make a true financial go of it. You've generated some SENSATIONAL photosets. You've spent good money on costumes, props, models, photography, post-production, studio time....but in the end, your audience is always going to be too small.

I'm sorry for what you feel is a bad experience. I'm sorry you feel alone here or like no one's listening or watching. I assure you that's not the case but I know the thanks button is no substitute for feedback, praise, criticism, and comments. For my own part in not speaking up before now, I apologize. Like many of us, I think I take creators for granted.

Personally I think the costumes and photos in general were just not really attractive when compared to ones from supersexyheroines

I'm mostly here for your Supergirl costume shoots. There's a few in your queue that I'm really looking forward to and will buy once released. I'm sorry about the frustration, though.

I've bought 3 or 4 shoots and they are high quality and the models are gorgeous.

I respect your opinion, and your right to have it, but I have to respectfully disagree, as it appears do others. Stick with us, we're evolving.

Hi all! I took a year sabbatical from the site frontend (I was shooting new stuff in the background) as a lot of stuff was getting on top of me. Work, family issues (a lot of illness and a couple deaths), but I'm hoping to be back on track. To kick the year off I have a new release with a new heroine and costume!

Hattie Grace (previously known as Kelly Hathaway) as Yvonne Craig's 1967 Batgirl! She looks great in the tight shiny suit!

Hattie Grace (Kelly Hathaway) - Set 1 - Beautiful Batgirl!

Watch this gorgeous tall brunette as she shows off the tight costume for you! She doesn't hang around, that's for sure! Our Academy is becoming a sanctuary for animal themed heroines! We tried finding caves locally in Essex, but there weren't any lol. We were going to get her to hang upside down!!

I'm not going to post all the promos as it slows the thread down and makes it too long. I'll post a link instead.

I'm not a Batgirl fan, but I'm definitely waiting for some of the Supergirl shoots you have in the pipeline.
