Image 2: seeley leans with smile toward camera, in a closer frame showing from torso up. With a sleeveless collared shirt, one arm stretches out high from hir shoulder. A red handkerchief is tied in an x under the collar. Sie has glamourous silver makeup around hir eyes, like a starchild. It's dim and hir appearance is hard to see, as the space is only lit from behind with a dark rosy light. It's a sultry performance atmosphere.

Image 3: a headshot with white background; seeley wears open collared shirts, faces diagonally but looks at the camera with slight smile. The light is soft and shows hir light beard and full moustache.
