Dressed In Gold


This is one of my latest creations. This fabric had been sitting around my sewing space for some time now, but I just didn’t know what kind of dress I wanted to create with it…until now.

This semi-sheer lace beauty is simple, elegant, and just a hint of sexy. When I was thinking of creating with this fabric, I just knew that it had to be a nice long dress with a pretty train in the back. When deciding the style for the upper portion of the dress, I think I just ended up overthinking it, which led me to just not creating this for awhile. Eventually, I settled on something simple.

The fabric itself was eye-catching enough that I didn’t feel that I had to do too much for this to be an eye-catching piece. It already spoke for itself. The soft bell sleeves are one of my favourite things to add on to my creations. It gives the creation an almost goddess-like presence.

I’m quite proud of this piece. It’s definitely a wonderful addition to add to my photo shoot wardrobe.

I haven’t thought much about the next step for this, which is a photo shoot (duh!). It’s definitely not my size, so I hope to find a model to wear this for a photo shoot in the future. In the meantime, I can dream up a concept for this dress!

Seeing Pink

As I work to improve my art, I’m constantly finding myself exploring ideas to get a feel for what works and what doesn’t.

With this particular shoot, I chose to create the look around my pink wig, including pink lips, pink eye makeup, and pink accessories. The pastel green floral fabric seemed like the perfect backdrop to balance out the look. The hints of pink flowers helped to tie it into my concept.

 I’m quite pleased with the way it turned out. The makeup turned out to be far better than I thought it would! Makeup was done by myself. When it comes to self-portrait work, all of the work is usually done by me unless otherwise noted.

I might re-visit this concept at a later date, though. As much as I love the backdrop and how it looks in this photo, a part of me thinks that I can create a better photo with a different background. I’ll have to have a think and see what I can come up with.

By the way, the collar that I’m wearing is one of my original creations. I’ve had it for quite some time now and have been wanting to do a photo shoot with it. I’m happy that I was finally able to find a concept for it!

Also, I’ve used this wig once before for a different photo shoot:

Hearts And Valentines


I’m not really a fan of Valentine’s Day, but I’m a fan of hearts. So there is a part of me that kind of likes the holiday, I suppose.

This photo was sort of an impromptu shoot. I had thought about a couple concepts to try for this particular day, but most of them required some prop and prep. I was a bit on a time-constraint, so most of them had to be pushed aside for another day.

So I worked with what I had.

To make the heart, I cut out a heart from paper. Then, I used eye shadow to shade in around the heart. Using a red lip liner, I made a bit of an edge to give the heart some definition. The jacket was a piece I’ve had in my wardrobe for ages. With this photo, it made its official photo shoot debut!

I tend to keep my makeup fairly uniform for self-portraits, darkening or lighting depending on the concept. So I consider this to be a step beyond my normal makeup skills. It was a learning experience. I wasn’t quite sure how it was going to turn out, so I just went for it hoping for the best. It seems a bit minor for a makeup look, but as someone who isn’t really a makeup expert, it was a big step.

I’m quite proud with how it turned out.

This look kind of makes me think of Jem and the Holograms. Truly outrageous!
