Black & White Retro

As promised I’m keeping up my weekly posts! I hope that with time I will write more often but as long as I average on once a week I’m happy, for now.

Most of you know me as a fetish and steampunk model but I do dabble in other genres as well. One of them is retro/vintage inspired and my favourite Stockholm photographer to go to for that is Hanna Fredholm. Earlier this spring we did a black and white shoot with a very simple styling and much accessories. I had only been doing shoots with other models since January so it felt really good to be alone in front of the camera. And I got a chance to bring out my beautiful corset busk jewellery from Vanyanís 🙂 ❤

Industrial Vintage

I had a shoot last weekend with Natalie G Sundling again, and this time we went for two different themes. The first one was vintage and we managed to find a lovely location that gave a nice industrial contrast and made it a bit artsy 🙂

I need to clear out my wardrobe to fit some new things in (things that I’ll actually use..), so this post will be dedicated to exactly that. It will be updated as soon as something goes or I find something new to get rid of, so you might want to check back every once in a while 🙂

Prices will be listed in Swedish Krona (SEK), Euro and Dollar, shipping is not included! If you see something you want, send an email to arathin@live.se with a description of the item in question and your country so I can calculate the shipping costs properly. I will NOT hold anything, it’s first pay first served.

Winter Fairytale Teaser

A couple of weeks ago I spent some time with the darling KT Twisted Photography to get some nice winter pictures taken. I had a lovely vintage dress that I’ve wanted to shoot for a long time and now it finally happened! It was cold and windy as hell, but it was all so beautiful with the snow falling softly.

Here’s a little teaser of the result 🙂

Valentine’s Day

So, today is Valentine’s Day, probably the one day of the year when everyone is divided into two camps: lovers and haters of Valentine’s. I’m a hopeless romantic, so I love this day ^^ I don’t, however, love all the commercial stuff that are being sold as “special gifts”. Teddybears with a big heart doesn’t really do it for me, give me a big cat instead! Or a pink elephant, that would be very nice indeed. Or a box of good chocolate and lots of quality time, I’m quite happy with that. I want something that comes from the heart, that has feeling.

Usually, me and my honey Mashiara will go out to a nice dinner and get some time to ourselves. But this year he’s being held back by his job, and so we’ve decided to do something more special next week when he comes up to me. It’s a bit sad to be without him, but we’ll make up for it later ^^

Anyway, I hope you are all having a great Valentine’s Day, whether you’re celebrating it or not 🙂

Here’s a little something from me and KT Twisted Photography:

Vintage Dress

My first home exam was handed in a few days ago, now I’m hoping that my teacher can make some sense of what I’ve written and give me a passing grade. Now, however, I’ve got two courses parallell to each other adn tons of work to do! A few shoots are being planned and I desperately hope the weather will hold up until they’re done. Got some shiny and non-shiny stuff so it’s going to be good ^^

Speaking of clothes, earlier this week I met up with my darling friend Tea Time to exchange money for dress, drink tea and coffee and rant about school related stuff. Always so much fun ^^

Aaand here’s the dress I bought from her! A bit different colourscheme than usual for me, but I love it 🙂 And it fits perfectly!

Purple Vintage

Oh, I almost forgot to show you this!

Last Sunday me and my honey Mashiara went to the Burlesque Flea Market that was being held in Stockholm City. We wanted to see the Viola Lahger/Maebelle Latex/Sarah Burchill fashion show and I had planned to find me something nice and pretty. The fashion show was gorgeous and I got to say hi to some of my dear friends 🙂 After that, while Mashiara found himself a nice corner, I went around the venue together with darlings Tea and Josefine. Or rather, we pushed our way through, there was so much people everywhere!

Anyway, Tea got the assignment to throw pretty things at me – and she didn’t fail. After about ten seconds she had found me the most gorgeous-looking purple silk skirt. I tried it on, it fit nice, and I decided it was mine ^^

I also managed to provide myself with a beautiful deep blue hair flower, but I forgot to take a picture of that one.. Oh well, hopefully I’ll get to use them both in a photoshoot soon 🙂
