Frogwoman Anna – Old and New HD Video Update

Frogwoman Anna – Old and New HD Video Update. See the full length video https://www.hapwater.com/videos

After squeezing herself into the tightest vintage sharkskin drysuit, Frogwoman Anna is all geared up in her authentic retro dive equipment. With a Fenzy BCD, sharkskin neoprene gloves and oval dive mask. However, not everything is as vintage as seen. The Mistral twin-hose regulator may look as if it came straight out of the 1960s, but it’s new and offers all of the reliability and safety expected from modern day diving equipment.

If you would like to own the rare ScubaPro drysuit worn by Anna, it’s available HERE.

Shooting Frogwoman Anna in the snow!

We had no idea when we made our initial filming plan, that on the day of the shoot it was going to be so unbelievably cold! The night before, it started snowing and the mercury plummeted. It was still snowing when we arrived at the lake the following morning.

The first job is always the same, carry all of the heavy gear down to the lakeshore. Back breaking work, but on a morning like this it’s a great way to keep warm. Next, Anna needed to get into the suit. This is always a struggle when girls with long hair meet drysuits, but the vintage ScuabaPro suit is on another level of difficult!

Because it was so cold, she decided it would be best to try and suit-up in the car. After getting her feet into the booties, Anna pulled the suit up to her waist, first left arm in, followed quickly by the right. So far so good. Now she only needed to slide her head through a tight neck seal and into the attached hood before zipping the suit closed.

Manufactured from 8mm shark-skin neoprene, the suit doesn’t really stretch. Curvy Anna was definitely going to fill it very snugly, leaving absolutely no wiggle room. Try as she might, she just couldn’t get her head under the neck seal. Climbing out of the car, she tried again, hopping, pulling, stretching, yanking, grunting. With all of the straining she wasn’t feeling cold anymore! After what seemed like an eternity, there was a loud pop and a squeal of delight as her head finally slid into the hood and she could zip seal the suit tightly closed!

Temperature Control

If there is one constant in my life, it’s that the girls are either unbelievably hot or incredibly cold when we’re shooting. I have lost count of the times I’ve had to stop filming so they can go and sit in my car with the heating or AC on full blast! However, today was clearly going to be full of hot-water bottles, blankets, quilted clothing and warm mugs of coffee… Not just for Anna, but for me too!

I hope you like reading about the fun we have behind the scenes. Please leave a comment if you’d like to see more posts of this style in the future.

Browsing Ebay, I stumbled across a contact sheet of photos of an unknown woman in a black rubber suit. Upon closer inspection it became clear that this was the Austrian actress Maria Perschy. In the classic film “Man’s Favorite Sport” (1964) Maria Perschy stars together with Paula Prentis and Rock Hudson. The film finds the two ladies snorkelling together in the tightest of rubber suits!

Watching this pair of beautiful women awkwardly exit the lake in their flippers and swim caps. They stand and talk together, with rubber clad bodies still dripping wet, masks and snorkels perched on their rubber capped heads. A short sequence maybe, but one that has left an impression on me that survives until today.

Making it onto my list of top films, “Man’s Favorite Sport” still wields a considerable influence upon my creative output!

Over the coming months I’ll be posting all of the pictures on my blog. Don’t forget to come back often to see more of Maria posing in her lovely rubber suit!

Man’s Favorite Sport Synopsis – Roger Willoughby is considered to be a leading expert on sports fishing. He’s written books on the subject and is loved by his customers in the sporting goods department at Abercrombie and Fitch, where he works. There’s only one problem however: he’s never been fishing in his life. When the store owner enters him in a fishing contest, mayhem ensues. https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0058324/mediaviewer/rm179620097/

What Motivates Me?

For those of you who don’t know anything about me, let me tell you of some of the things that inspire and motivate my work.

Vintage SCUBA women inspire my work
Code 7… Victim 5 (1964)

I’ve been taking pictures of beautiful Frogwomen since the late 1980s! Originally with a film camera and now a DSLR. Influenced by films from the 1960s and 70s where beautiful women would wear tight form fitting rubber wetsuits, almost always combined with twin-hose regulators and oval dive masks. Not afraid to look sexy in their smooth beavertail wetsuits, with fashionable petal bathing caps protecting their long hair, a vision of these powerful women was burnt brightly into my then young impressionable imagination!

Some of the films that have inspired me: Man’s Favorite Sport, Code 7… Victim 5, James Bond (particularly Thunderball), Fantastic Voyage

As modern diving equipment has evolved it has become much safer and more comfortable to use, but for me at least, it has lost the pure and simple attraction of the vintage gear.

It has long been my goal to revisit those more innocent years, when SCUBA diving was an extraordinary and exciting activity for a young woman, where the diving suits and equipment accentuated the female form. In conclusion, I present to you my life work…
