It’s the First of May! Outdoor something starts today…(NSFW link to song)
The sun is out and there’s a calm breeze waiting to take us to new lands seeking titillating treasures. The warmth, too much for some, has us shedding down to the barest of necessities. Sometimes the only clothing adorning our backs is our loyalty to the crew.
To celebrate the rebirth of the year, and all of the romance this season encourages, we bring you the ladies most dedicated to their piratical vows, Wenches Wrapped in the Black Flag.
Jacey Julep: What’s left of the Flag
Jacey Julep is a cosplayer who got her start in Renaissance Faires. Her roots are in Piracy, but she has since branched out into many areas of cosplay including Disney and Comic Book Superheroes. In her heart, however, she will always be Wrapped in the Black Flag.
Jacey has many fine examples of her cosplay on her Facebook page, but her love of piracy is best represented on her DeviantArt page. Along with cosplay modeling Jacey also is involved in Alt/Goth modeling and shoots many of her own self portraits. Some of her prints are available on her website: jaceyjulep.storenvy.com

La Diabla: Black Flag Silhouette
La Diabla is returning favorite and friend of River City Piracy. She was featured in our first Pirate Pin-Ups feature, A Look at Modern Piracy, and I’m sure she will return again, if we don’t do anything to get on her bad side.
“This vivacious vixen is known to the world as La Diabla, the she-devil. A piratical provocateur of preternatural proportions, her steel blue eyes will pierce men’s hearts even quicker than her blades.”
In this lovely photo we see her silhouetted behind her Jolly Roger leaving what she’s wearing up to the imagination. But the menacing glare she’s giving us assures you that until she chooses otherwise she will remain Wrapped in the Black Flag.
La Diabla is also known as Amanda Lee. Her modeling goes well beyond piracy and into the land of Alt/Tattoo modeling. Her published credits include Cinamagic Magazine, Tattoo Kultur, Visual Artistry Magazine and many others. This freelance model keeps busy.

Racie Hart: Castaway Racie
This lovely lass is known as Racie Hart. She is a pin-up model on the website Zivity, which is a community photographers and models allowing a safe outlet for artistic nude and pin-up photography without allowing it to become pornography. Racie has several photo-sets posted, but Castaway Racie is far and away our favorite of the lot.
Due to the nature of this site, she only begins this adventure Wrapped in the Black Flag.
CogentContent, also known as JBHStudios, shoots models of all sorts, styles, and temperments. To put it in his words, “basically, anyone who has never tired of playing dress up.” He mostly shoots in a glamour or pin-up style and 200+ of his shoots can be seen on Zivity.com.

Chibi-Bony: Drapeau pirate with gun and tattoo
Chibi-Bony is a cosplay and pin-up model hailing from France. She has some absolutely gorgeous work in her collection from time periods and genres that are not usually at the forefront of cosplay. One photoshoot that particularly stuck out as we were admiring her body of work is entitled Scoundrels. A name to catch our attention, certainly, but this collection interestingly takes the theme of a film noir detective.
The photograph showcased here is what initially drew us in. She has a whole series on DeviantArt from this photoshoot. It was absolute torture to have to choose only one to showcase here. Her pirate shoot is safe for work, but there are times when she is only Wrapped in the Black Flag.

Mayhem Images: Jolly Roger 1
This black and white beauty comes to us as an example of the talented Mayhem Images photography studio. Mayhem Images specializes in cosplay, portrait, event and wedding photography, but they are also known to do the occasional boudoir shoot if that is what your wicked heart desires.
A beautiful boudoir shoot is what produced this lovely image of a provocative poppet Wrapped in the Black Flag.
Located in Champaign, Illinois, they are equidistant from St. Louis and Chicago giving them a good portion of the Midwest to wander. Rates for private shoots or events are on their website: www.mayhemimages.com

BONUS: TN-exposed as a Burlesque Pirate
As a bonus to the barely-clothed pirates Wrapped in the Black Flag we bring you TN-exposed as another pirate who isn’t quite dressed for battle.
“Since one of my greatest hobbies is to attend parties and events with pirate theme, I insisted on making a pirate part of this shoot… So I got handcuffed ;___;”
While there isn’t a flag draped around this voluptuous treasure, there is certainly a Black Flag flying in her soul.
When not attending Piratical Parties, TN-exposed helps to promote the art and beauty of full-figured women. Her DeviantArt page has collections of nude self-portraits for the sole purpose of providing a model for artists. Her Curvy Female Poses (NSFW) are designed to help artists produce more realistic women in their work. This Dame from Denmark is a veritable saint the way she graces us with her body in the name of artistic education.
“My naked body is my freedom, and doing nude art is my sanctuary – Whether it’s self shot or not. Hopefully I can inspire both artists and other girls/women, since doing stuff like this, has helped me in getting to a point where I really love my body!”
