I say they are..I have never heard anyone mention this but when I was looking though mine a few of the suits looked fake or like something was off about them?

I have the calender, and you can see the fishing string on the full size picture.

The trick is to stare at the picture for a LONG time. When your wife comes in and looks at you like a pervert....just let her know you are trying to figure out the engineering of her top.

Barry Vaught took those pictures and I doubt very much they are photoshopped or airbrushed. Just because your girlfriend or wife doesn't look that good, doesn't mean there aren't girls out there that look like that! Just kidding, you'd be amazed what the right light will do for you.

the girls look is just their clothing that looks shopped...

If you look really close, you can see the clear plastic straps that make up the straps

You can count on every image printed (now-a-days) being photoshopped in some way or other. Just a tweak here or an adjustment there. I'm not saying the the content is always changed but I am saying that the images are manipulated to print or appear as desired by the art staff. This includes contrast, brightness levels, cropping, sharpness and so on.

To me, the thing that makes this image look "fake" is the color saturation (or oversaturation) of the suits. Oversaturation messes up the shadows and kills a lot of detail...thus making things look un-natural. Do I think the suits were drawn or otherwise "created" in photoshop...probably not. Adjusted in photoshop...certainly.

Thank you Steven .
The August image was actually shot by Chris Johnson,(Monster Tower's Graphix Guru). Jason is correct on the clear straps. The suits are a very popular topic.
The 2006 Monster Calendar Shoot will be real soon. If you know of any girls that might be qualified to be in the calendar, please have them contact me at
Thank you
