When the Light Is Right

I haven’t been as consistent with my photography as I’d like to be lately. So, it was refreshing to finally be able to create something again.

The back story behind this…A few days ago, I was getting ready to head out the door. Then I glanced over into the Parlour Room. The light was perfect. So I put my bags down, touched up my makeup, and set up my camera. After a couple test shots and a few actual shots, the impromptu photo shoot was done.

I’d consider this to be one of the fastest photo shoots I’ve ever done. It was incredibly last minute and in the moment, and I was quite pleased with the results.

Patreon. Sorted. Finally.


Well, I did it. I finally set up my Patreon…after having it sitting and collecting dust for a couple years now.

Currently, I have some of my Instax photos up as tier rewards. Their prices start at $1, so you get to decide how much you want to pay.


More rewards will be added as I create more Patreon-only content. Click on either photo to be taken to my Patreon account.

Dressed in Red and Gold | The Articles


This is one of my original designs. Like most of my creations, this one probably came with a really crappy pre-design drawing. By drawing, I mean a terrible chicken scratch of a thing. I’ll have to find it and post it.

I created this dress for a photo shoot a year or so ago. My role was to be the Queen of Diamonds! Fortunately, in my hot mess of Wardrobe Madness, I had just enough red satin and gold satin fabric to make this dress. In retrospect, I wish I had made it longer (It’s about knee length on me.).

This dress was the first dress where I had attempted to make the princess sleeves. I actually stuffed it with tulle inside to make it more puffy to show the different colours in it. For the collar, I used a bit of a interface to stiffen it and have it stand up as straight as possible.

For the bodice section, I crisscrossed red and gold ribbon and placed AB rhinestones in the centre of each ‘diamond.’ Then as a final touch, I have gold braided trim around the bodice to accent it.┬áTo give it a full look, I believe I have three petticoats underneath the dress.

Like I said, I created this for a photo shoot. It’s been sitting in my wardrobe since, just waiting to be worn again. It certainly still has plenty of life left in it, and I’d love to use it again for another photo shoot. Now to find someone who’s my size…
