The Making of the Wizard Girls Calendar 

Posted by James at 9:18 AM ET

The Washington Wizard Girls traveled to Ocean City, Maryland to shoot their 2009 Swimsuit Calendar; it's their first calendar in five years. The shoot took place at various sites around the island over a four-day period (last Friday-Monday.) Wizards Girl Director Jessica Pikulsi was incredibly generous to invite me down to get a behind the scenes look at how the calendar is put together.

Here is Alexandria on the beach by the pier.

And here's the army of support staff that you don't see in the calendar.

It takes a lot of people to make the calendar happen. You've got the twenty beautiful, talented and charming Wizard Girls, of course, Jessica and her assistant directors, Brianne and Kelly, world class photographer Scott Bryant and his assistants, makeup artists, hair stylists, drivers, folks from Wizards Game Operations, another photographer documenting the making of the calendar, and a videographer who brought along his son. It was kind of a shame that the son was too young to appreciate the ladies in their bikinis; he was more interested in playing his Gameboy.

Here's Kristie at The Party Block Pool Bar (17th and Coastal Highway)

And what you don't see in the calendar is Kristie three hours earlier getting her hair styled.

The Making of the Wizard Girls Calendar is in the gallery.

The 2009 Wizard Girls Swimsuit Calendar is expected to be available in September.
