Summer Black Milk Shoot

Ugh, high time I wrote something in this blog.. Since I’m not shooting that much at the moment I’m finding it hard to write here. I mean, my everyday stuff aren’t really that exciting, it’s just work, work, food and more work. And I’d like to keep all that boring stuff out of here. I did create a blog solely for all things food related though, so if you’re interested you can always follow me at Philosophia Cibi.

Anyways, the reason for this post is not to moan but to actually show you something new! In late May my dear friend Lady Tigra and I got together for a quick shoot as she is now a photographer as well as a model. We wanted to keep it simple but alternative so I grabbed some items from my Black Milk Clothing collection and a couple of accessories and this is what we did:

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!

Darkness & Goth Girls

In the early summer I got together with two of my loveliest creative friends, Lucy Fehr and Katiekat, to do a bit of shooting together. I had been in discussions with them both about co-modeling and so we thought it would be a good idea to do something all three. So I got to model alongside both of them, which was tons of fun 😀 We have such great chemistry so everything just flowed and the photos turned out wonderful!

Here are two of them to start with 🙂 Photographer for the first one is Lucy Fehr and Katiekat is my co-model (she also did the editing on this one) and for the second one it’s the other way around! Lucy’s and my dresses are from Black Milk Clothing, my corset is from Viola Lahger and my nail armour is from Myril Jewels.

Let’s Go Darkness

Yes, I know I have been neglecting this blog quite a bit (read: a lot) but I promise it will be better from now on! As of now I will aim to do at least one blog post a week, whether it’s about my creative adventures, food or other everyday stuff. I just really need to get back into the habit of writing as it helps clear my mind of other things.

So we’re starting with something creative, namely a wonderful behind the scenes pic of me and the lovely Lucy Fehr during our shoot with Katiekat yesterday. Lucy is all black metal badass and can’t keep a straight face 😛
Our dresses are from Black Milk Clothing, my corset is made by Viola Lahger and my nail armor is from Myril Jewels.

Black Milk in Autumn

Wow, I’ve really neglected this blog it seems. I’ll blame it on work and the Holidays as things have been pretty hectic.

I did realise though that I’ve forgotten to show you this shoot I did last fall with Natalie G Sundling, before she left for the States.

Purple Tentacles

About a week before Christmas I teamed up again with the awesome Natalie G Sundling for a photoshoot. I had just received a lovely new pair of Black Milk leggings that I was dying to shoot, and the result turned out perfect! We even took the time to make some Christmas photos ^^ By the way, I hope you’ve had a lovely Christmas and that your New Year’s will be just as great! But now, time for pictures 🙂

More Black Milk

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 ^^

Cthulhu Fashion Shoot

Last weekend I met up with one of my favourite photographers, Natalie G Sundling, for a photoshoot. We decided on two themes and here is the first one, a little Cthulhu fashion 🙂

Tentacles, tentacles, tentacles!

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!

CthulhuLeggings

 

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 🙂

AtlantisNecklace

 

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..
