Back in early May me and my boyfriend went to Berlin for German Fetish Ball Weekend. This was our second time there as we really enjoyed the experience last year, and while we had planned to go to more parties and events we actually spend a lot of time just enjoying the city. We did go to the ball on Saturday though and of course the fetish fair, these were our main priorities after all.
I love going to fashion fairs and flea markets, it’s so much fun to go around, browse everything and chat with a designer or two (although I’m horribly shy and very bad at representing my model self). And of course I always come away with something nice ^^
This time was no different, although I wish I had taken the chance to get something more (don’t you always?).
Anyways, my treasures this year was a beautiful harness inspired top from Pandora Deluxe’s latest collection and an order for a dress from Catriona Stewart Clothing. A few weeks ago that dress arrived and here it is! It’s an absolute dream made of electric lilac latex ❤
It’s the girliest piece of fetish clothing I will probably ever own but I love it to bits 🙂 And I will be doing a shoot with it soon which will be so much fun!
Last week my latest order from Westward Bound arrived, the lovely Sucre-Bomb Dress ❤ I got it in red and white and it’s so pretty! It fits really good too 🙂 I’m really looking forward to plan a proper shoot for it.
Westward Bound is one of the latex designers I would love to do a proper collaboration with, that’s been on my bucket list for years now. But until that time comes, I will keep on buying the things I like and create some creative shoots with them ^^ Hopefully, one day..
Anyways, a little sneak peek of the pretty thing ^^
The 1st of October Black Milk Clothing released their Halloween collection. I was pretty interested in it since I had heard rumours about there being pieces with Corpse Bride print. I love Tim Burton and Corpse Bride is one of my favourite movies. Ever. Imagine my happiness when they published the list of all prints and styles to be released and I saw “Corpse Bride leggings”!
Naturally, I had to have them.
While going through all the sneak peeks there was another item that caught my eyes. The Dead Cat leggings, with a print of a cat skeleton patterned in a kaleidoscopic kind of way. Every time I looked at them I just seemed to want them more. The only catch was they were a 48H special, which meant they were only going to be on sale for 48 hours. Did I have money for them?
Yes, I did.
My new babies and I don’t regret a thing! I was never much for leggings on nylon before, but once I got my hands on my first pair (the Cthulhu leggings), I was stuck. Now I got three pairs and I’m very happy indeed ^^
As you can probably guess from the title, I’m a bit of a Lovecraft/Cthulhu/octopus/tentacles freak 😛 I collect everything related that strikes my fancy, and this week two new items arrived for my collection.
First of all, I got these lovely Cthulhu leggings from Black Milk Clothing ❤ I’m a bit sad though that they don’t make the matching dress anymore, but one of these days I will get my hands on one!
The second thing that arrived with the post was this beautiful necklace from The Crypt of Curiosities ❤ I’ve been drooling over it for weeks and once I saw that there was only one left.. Well, I just couldn’t resist 😉 Besides, it’s the last one she will probably ever make and I’m so happy to own it 🙂
I need to plan shoots with them both soon! I’ve already got an idea for the leggings, the necklace will require something ocean blue or green. Maybe something in latex, I haven’t quite decided yet..
I’ve acquired some new things these past few weeks. Both are shiny but made from different materials 😛
First off is the edition of Cat’s Meow Magazine where I have my feature. I had to have it to myself and finally I got around to order a copy.
The second thing that arrived was a new pair of latex gloves. From where? All You Need Is Gloves, of course ^^
Not the best pic, I know, but there are better ones to come! I had them during a shoot with Belinda Bartzner – Photography yesterday, and I’ve got some sneak peeks for you. But you’ll have to wait a little for them ^^
I’m still hard at work, but new shoots are being planned and booked, and I’m excited to be back in the game 🙂
My decision to take a break from modelling seems to have been a pretty good one. I don’t feel so stressed and can focus completely on my studies. Also, I’m feeling more creative. I keep getting new ideas, and hints to ideas, that I want to do. That was one thing that I was missing, the feeling of being really creative and the desire to create art.
The funny thing is, I started to feel creative when I got my latest corset – the dark green overbust that I bought from Tea Time. And I felt it again when I got my latest treasure, a beautiful necklace made from a vintage syringe.
And the lovely summery weather might also have something to do with it. Now I can finally do some proper location shoots, and I’ve missed that a lot 🙂
I will stay on my break until June 15th, after that I will only be shooting on weekends since I will be working full time. But I already have a few things planned ^^
Let’s end this post with a couple of pics of my inspiring treasures!
I took a break from studying this Sunday to drag my honey Mashiara to the local burlesque fair. I can’t really call it a flea market anymore, which is what it originally was, since there are so many designers and shops selling there now as well as private people.
There were soooo many people! It’s amazing to see how much it has grown in only a couple of years! And of course I found loads of things that I wanted :3 But I had set a budget so I couldn’t afford everything..
But I had called dibs on a corset a friend of mine was selling and that one took most of my money. It’s a beauty though so I can’t complain ^^
I also found a necklace consisting of a small glass flask filled with pieces of real gold, salvaged from old computers and cell phones. Now that’s steampunk!
I was supposed to have a gorgeous photoshoot today with one of my favourite photographers, KT Twisted Photography. But the poor thing is not feeling well at all so we decided to reschedule.
Still, my hair is curled and I’ve got a bit of makeup on so I’m feeling quite pretty anyway. Fit for fight to tackle my home exam (somewhat…) and to meet with my sweetest ChaosModel to get back some latex that she’s borrowed from me. On Saturday I have a shoot with Natalie G Sundling and I’m thinking about bringing my new pretty heels to it ^^
I’m currently hard at work, writing a home exam in a subject I’m not quite sure I understand. For once I don’t think I’m going to feel proud of what I’ll hand in.. I don’t like the feel of it, but I guess that’s how it is sometimes. I only wish I understood it all more since it’s going to be an important part of my working career. But hopefully it will sort itself out, hopefully…
In happier news, I picked up a new pair of high heels today. Somehow I managed to convince my beloved Mashiara that I wanted them really really badly, so I got the thumbs up to order them ^^ We call it an early birthday present for me 😉 I could have just ordered them anyway, but I tend to prefer to ask him since I then won’t have to deal with “Do you really need those?” in THAT kind of voice (come on, you know which one I mean…). He’s so sweet, my honey ❤
Anyways, here they are! I’ll try and get a picture of them on as soon as I can 🙂
I’ve been suffering from a nasty cold this past week so I’ve spent most of my time sleeping on the sofa. I probably would get better a lot quicker if I din’t have lectures and such to go to, but this course I’m taking is rather difficult to grasp so I don’t have much of a choice. I’m slowly getting there though, but when you get tired just from putting on a latex skirt you realize it’s not all gone 😛
And speaking of latex skirts, I won myself a free one from Collective Chaos a while ago and yesterday I finally felt well enough to try it on properly. It’s so pretty, I really love it ^^
Hopefully I’ll get to do some shoots with it this spring and summer, I’ve got some nice ideas for it 🙂
And since we’re on the topic of ideas, I’m currently planning a couple of shoots with a bunch of photographers. Two are booked to be done in a couple of weeks and I’m really looking forward to them. By now you’ve probably realized that I love creating shoots based around a distinct theme. These two really have that, they’re both different from each other but will be equally awesome to do 🙂 One is also with a new designer!
I may be stressed out over my studies, but this is just one of the things that keep me from going utterly insane 😉
