7 Deadly Sins: Luxuria (b&w)

Challenge #1 in the Sevens series. Hosted by mschf.
Challenge has finished
The 7 Deadly Sins, used since the advent of Christianity, are the most objectionable vices which beckon humans to sin (more info at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Seven_deadly_sins). This challenge explores "luxuria" (also known as "extravagance" or "lust"), its most basic definition being "unrestrained excess (eg. the frequent purchase of luxury goods, forms of debauchery, etc)". There are numerous ways to interpret this with imagery and it is now up to your creativity and perhaps a little research to come up with something that portrays this "deadly sin".

I was working on backgrounds on this Pinocchio figure in downtown St. Louis, when this angle really caught my attention - A Pinocchio, long nose and all loving up big business!
