Kultur Mag Steampunk Feature

Well, hello there! I see it’s been quite a while since I posted something on this blog and, well, I have no other excuses than that I have been more busy with my job and everyday life than anything creative really. And that means I haven’t had anything to write about (and no, I’m not going to turn this into an everyday blog).

I realised the other day, though, that I had forgot to post about my latest publication! A couple of months ago I was published in Kultur Mag’s steampunk issue with s couple of sets that I shot with Carmilla earlier this year. I love this set so much, it’s one of the best I’ve ever done!

Corset: Viola Lahger

Steampunk Sneak Peeks

I know I’ve been neglecting this blog quite a bit but time has moved so fast these past couple of months so I guess I just forgot I had it. I also haven’t been shooting a lot so there haven’t been much of that to write about. Early this year I made an active decision to cut beck on modelling for several reasons. Partly because I don’t feel I have enough time for it since I work during the week and only have time to shoot on weekends (when I also might want to do other things, like spend time with my love and my friends), and partly because I want to dedicate more time to shoot ideas that I have been working on for a while. It’s time to cross off that To Do list. And if that means shooting less in favour of creating great shoots, then so be it.

To be honest, it’s the best decision I’ve made so far. I love the process of creating a shoot and I want to fell that I’ve put enough time and energy in all of them, not just some. I’m less stressed now, it’s easier for me to get into the right mood and flow during a shoot and I feel very happy with the outcome.

In late March I had my first shoot in five months and it was with the lovely Carmilla who was here for the weekend. We had decided early on to something more fantasy inspired and later agreed to “throw in” some latex as well. I had a couple of ideas for both that had been brewing in my mind for a long time and now I could finally realise them in front of the camera! I love how both sets turned out, there were some true top notch images in both of them. Im still working on accepting the fact that my body looks different now than when I started six years ago, but hey, that’s what genetics, age and a feeling of being stable and happy in life can do 😛

Anyways, here are some selfies and sneak peeks for you!

Lights Under the Sea

If it’s something love it’s working on supercreative shoots! The whole process of planning the theme for months, working out the outfit, styling, makeup and what props to use.. It’s what keeps my creative juices flowing 🙂

Early last year me and the lady behind Imperial Fiddlesticks Emporium started discussing doing an ocean goddess themed shoot, based on a gorgeous mermaid themed top hat she had made me previously. We got a lovely makeup artist on board and Katiekat agreed to stand behind the camera.
This is the final result!

Fetish Fairy Tale

A couple of weeks ago I did a new shoot with my girl Natalie G Sundling. I had some new latex from Westward Bound that needed to come out and play as well as some pretty jewellery and accessories. Here’s what we came up with!

On a completely different note, I was also nominated for a Liebster Award by Asylum Attendant a while ago. Although I haven’t been to answer the questions yet, I happily accept it and will try to complete it as soon as I can! ❤

Kultur Mag Publication!

Woho! The steampunk shoot I did with Kitty Carol a little while ago made its way into the latest issue of Kultur Mag, namely the Cosplay Issue 34.1 2014 🙂 I’m so happy to see this shoot in one of my favourite magazines of all times, everything turned out so perfect!

Alice in the Dark

Early in December last year, I had another shoot with the lovely Kitty Carol. This time we did something a bit different. Instead of just going with a badass outfit, we focused on doing some creative portraits – with different accessories. We did two different styles and the result was awesome! I can’t wait to see the the finished result of the second look, it was so much fun to go out of my “styling box” and something completely new 🙂

With that said, I love this first look as well. I feel like a combined Alice in Wonderland-burlesque lady-19th century vampire ^^

Moving Ahead of Time

Yep, I think that title says it all. My mind is currently racing like mad. There’s so many things that needs to be done before Christmas and yet I feel like I’ve hardly started with anything. Mentally I’m at the weekend before Christmas, some time between Christmas and New Years, while having my usual home exam panic in early January. I’m nowhere near where I actually AM, December 2nd, with still some time left to fix everything that needs to be done and figure out alternative plans for the things that won’t work.

I think my stress comes from the fact that I’m busy pretty much every day up until the weekend before Christmas. That’s my stop, that’s where this insane train will come to a halt and will start to enjoy the Holidays. My schedule consists of this: work at the internship, attend lectures, work on the home exams, study, shoot fun photoshoots, buy Christmas gifts, make candy, plan for food making, look for Christmas decorations and at least attempt to be creative at some other point.

Ugh, if I did an insanity check right now, the levels would be sky high it feels >_<

But hey, here’s a pretty picture at least ^^ I need to assemble all the photos from this shoot in a single post soon!

What’s Coming Ahead

Hard at work at my internship at the moment. Together with all the studying, I don’t have much free time at all. I don’t like to have to study on weekends, but right now I’m pretty much forced to.. This and other things was the reason why I a couple of months ago decided to cut back on modelling a bit. I can’t stop it completely, I’m too restless for that, but I won’t shoot anything that hasn’t previously been discussed. Also, I will only shoot with photographers that I’ve worked with before. All others will have to wait until next year – and I can’t really give any TF guarantees then since I don’t know what will happen.

With all that said, I try not to plan ahead too much, it will only stress me out. One thing at the time, like my honey’s desperately been trying to teach me for years 😛 Whatever happens, happens, and it will most likely turn out good in the end ^^

In a couple of weeks, though, I will be shooting with the wonderful Kitty Carol again 🙂 Lots of pretty latex this time! Here’s a new treat from our shoot this summer ❤
