Hysteria in Hesperia

Yesterday was so much fun. After weeks of planning, set bulding, fittings and scheming, Lauren WK, Scar, Paindancer Productions and I headed out to the desert to shoot a Silent Hill inspired editorial for Eirik Aswang. Paul Spataro also drove up to do what has probably been my favourite hair styling to date; neon orange and pink spray hair dye over fifties rolls!

Eirik's corsets were nurse inspired; warped white leather that had been stained and painted over, with matching giant nurse caps. We played around with some medical gauze and netting for more texture on the face and over the hair, and stumbled around the set trying to look as attractively decayed as possible.

Big thank you to Adam Chilson for set design and allowing us to invade his home, and to Eirik for getting three outfits made in time for the shoot.

Travel Update: Philly 12th-15th March

It's offical! I just booked my flight to Philadelphia, and am really looking forward to the trip.

I will be staying with Amy (Vaunt Designs) and hope to get plenty of shooting packed into my 3 day visit. We've been talking back and forth for ages, so it's going to be nice to finally meet her and work with her and Corwin.

In other news, I was asked to attend "Bound Los Angeles Rope Conference" yesterday by my good friend Jordan. I'm going to be one of the models for the rope classes, it should be a really good event. It's on the 20th of March, and anyone interested in learning rope-work, photographing it, or just networking with like-minded deviants should consider attending. More info here: Bound Los Angeles

Testing...

Welcome to my new blog.

I'm very excited about keeping everyone up to date with my nonsensical scribblings. My aim here is to update regularly about shoots, publications, events etc, but also to post stuff from my everyday life that normally gets left out. Everything from travel plans, to parties, to interviews will go up here, and since I finally got a new camera for Xmas, I also intend to post plenty of pictures :)

This week is already off to a good start, I have a casting for a DID (Damsel in Distress) shoot on Friday, then on Saturday it's out to the desert for an all-day shoot with Lauren WK and Scar, for Eirik Aswang's designs, shot by Paindancer Productions. Don't want to give it all away just yet so I'll just leave you with this... if you ever thought the nurse scene from Silent Hill needed re-creating with three hot babes and some couture leather work, you're dreams are about to come true :)
