I actually consider this my very first fetish-oriented photograph. The year was 1983. I was always trying to get my then-girlfriend to wear strange tight shiny clothes cuz for some reason I liked it. Sometimes I succeeded so i was sure to take some pics. This shot was taken on the campus of St. Louis University.
The image was scanned from the original 35mm negative which I recently found. I had processed it myself in my dad's darkroom down in the basement.

Coma Diet was my old band in Chicago. That's where the 'diet' in my name came from. We were like the Beatles, except not as good and American. We were also like the Monkees in that we all lived together, except we lived in Chicagos's Wicker Park back when it was a total bad-ass neighborhood and rent was only $300 a month for a 5-bedroom apartment. We sounded like a cross between Roy Orbison and Einsturzende Neubauten. We made several tapes of our music, and they even got played on some indie radio stations around the country. We've been recently approached by some new labels about re-releasing some of them but that means I have to find the original tapes, which I believe are in an old Keds shoebox in some closet in my place. Coma Diet consisted of Michael Dalton, Steve "Diet" Goedde, Dave Selsley, and Chris Hanley. No reunion is planned as of this publication.
These photos were scanned from the original Walgreens-processed negatives.
