2013 Swimsuit Issue Release Party

posted by / Photos / April 30, 2013

From the outside, producing a Swimsuit Issue might seem like nothing more than lounging around a beautiful destination, surrounding oneself with gorgeous women and taking pictures of said beauties half naked. But in reality, it’s actually… well, yeah, it’s basically that. We yearned to celebrate the product of our working vacation, and we yearned to celebrate it with friends. Last Thursday, at Jeannie Jeffries’ Orange Door Studios in Costa Mesa, we did just that. Walls were adorned with the adorable eyes of the issue’s featured models; beer was swigged and wine was swilled in a fashion that made the Friday workday hangovers well worth it. We now invite you to enjoy photos from the evening. As for us — we’re looking into jobs at Playboy.
