This was a while ago, but I tried on the stuff I got for my last order before Naucler Design closed down business. And here are the photos! ^^; Body and harness.
This morning I reflected upon the fact that putting on make-up after a week of illness, made me feel like I recogized myself in the mirror again. I thought to myself: “Am I hiding behind make-up if I feel more like myself when I’m wearing it?” – because, you know, that’s what they say about people (women) who wear a lot of make-up.
I have not always worn heavy make-up, and I still very rarely do because it takes so long and in my line of work it would be ruined in seconds. But I do looove wearing it! Ofc I can leave the house with no make-up at all. Heavy make-up is a pretty new thing in my life, it was not until I was like 20 that I really started to experiment with make-up. I was in a good place in my life, my teen insecurities were fading away and I had started my studies at the university. And when I did start to experiment, it was like I found a new way of making art, with my face as the canvas, I could express something within me that I had had no way of expressing before. – I could conduct my beautiful inside out. Is that so strange? That it is not about being someone else, but rather expressing what is in my head, who I really am?
On this note, I start to reflect upon my fetish for masks.
Robbie always say that I become like a different person when I put on a mask – in a good way. Not not myself, just different – maybe more myself? I love masks on others, because of the mystery it creates of the wearer. But I myself love to wear masks because I feel like I can be more myself. Now, masks are often a lot different from make-up, they tend to hide a lot rather than enhance (which is the whole point of make-up). Note that the mask is for hiding features – NOT personality. Masks are magic, as soon as you put one on, you feel like you are unrecognizable and can let anything you want come out. As I also, in my own way, believe in magic, I cannot say that I do not believe that masks are perfect vessles for magic. ;D
And yes, I am aware that I do not wear like drag-heavy make-up, this was just something that came into my head on the not of my feelings on wearing make-up over all.
Finally the harness shoot is up on www.robbiesphoto.com!
I mat say this every time, but I think this might be my best shoot so far! Firstly, I had been drooling over this harness from www.restrictionwear.com for litterally years! Then, when I got it, it took quite some time to be able to shoot it like we wanted. I planned the styling for quite a while and tried different looks. And when we finally got to it, I did something I had been beating myself up about for like forever – I dared to climb out of my stone face! XD
A lot more from this set can be viewed at www.robbiesphoto.com!
I posted a sneaky photo of my outfit for the Darklife Halloween party on Facebook, but I was so pleased with the whole outfit I just need to show it off! (Yet again, crappy dark bathroom cellphone shots, sorry for that… XD)
Hoping to shoot it this summer. ^^ The antlers are part of an idea Robbie’s had for years. I bought them off Ebay (from Germany), still on top of the skull. Robbie and his father cut them off, actually threaded the inside of the antlers so I could screw them on an old diadem. Crafty! I love them for it, and I love the antlers! <3
So, a lot has happened on the latex and shooting front since I wrote last. And I’ve got the photos to show for it!
Since I wore my brand new dress from Westward Bound for the shoot, I snapped a photo for you (I don’t know when the photos from the shoot will be done).
Didn’t wear my hair like that btw… ^^;
Stay tuned for more updates tonight! ;D
Shooting location for the day: our garage!
We could have named this set “Little Black Riding Hood” or something, but it’s sooooo used! Plus – as I posed, Robbie said: “You kinda look like a vampire or something…” and I was like “That’s exactly what I was thinking!”, so yeah… Vampiiiiiire! Ooooooooiiiioooooooo! Perfect for Halloween…? ;P
Felt nice to be back in my very first latex dress, I love it! And before you ask – the cape is a skirt. ;P
Finally the weather cleared up just as we had some time over. It’s been really gray and rainy for several weeks – Sweden in autumn.. We’ve been feeling a little bad for not shooting as much as we had planned this summer, but the big move and just a few ill fitting days of sun limited us more than we had expected.
BUT finally we got some nice autumn afternoon sun! We had found a nice little meadow with fluffy grass. And without revealing too much; I think this shoot has a nice surprise for a lot of you who have been following me for a while – a nice revival… ;D
A preview of the make:
