Tear sheet from my lovely daughter’s first publication, the Halloween edition of gothesquemagazine's junior edition, titled Gothesque Jr, naturally. This magazine is full of beautifully, at times creepy and chilling, images created in some part by fledgling baby bats. What an amazing way to let these darker inclined youngsters express themselves.
I’m in love with these photos I took of “Sugar Bomb” and thrilled that Gothesque Jr choose to publish them, especially since they published me when I was 6 months pregnant with her earlier this year.
Becoming a mother has been the most incredible journey for me, I’m proud to still be dying my hair (purple now), rocking stilettos, and decorating a goth nursery. Having this wee banshee hasn’t changed the core of what is me, it’s only made me work harder to achieve my dreams. I’m still modeling, writing and working in film. Just now I’m addicted to cloth diapers (I found some with SPIDERWEBS!) much like I am to boots. And pumping breast milk has become my morning routine with coffee.
So Sang the Tempered Soul
Another shot from my maternity shoot. I cannot wait to show my daughter these once she’s old enough to understand.
Model/Styling: Acid PopTart
Photographer: Red Generation
Tonight! I’ll be there and you can ask me about my big news in person. ;) But come to see some amazing talent collected in one spot, my work with Kevin James of Red Generation Photography will be on display. More info:
Yes, yes, it’s been quite a while I realize. September was a bizarre roller coaster trip of emotions and physical actualities. I’m still feeling a bit overwhelmed. It’s near impossible to keep up with all forms of social media from Twitter to Facebook, I think I may have to start syncing them all together.
The huge news is, I’ve returned from quite the successful adventure in LA. It was a very insightful trip where I made a lot of fantastic new friends and contacts. I learned a lot from various speakers and panels. But the biggest highlight would be the successful pitches to several Hollywood studios. I’m very pleased to announced that several studios have requested my script. It’s only the first step, although hugely important, to getting into the field of my dreams, movies, on a large scale. But thus far, it’s been positive.
I have more huge news to announce, but all in good time. Thanks to all who have stood behind me and cheered me on.
"A Haunted Memory"
Shot in what I can assure you to be a haunted train station, in Detroit. Some very freaky things happened on this shoot. And it was daytime. Between the noises I was hearing inside the building (I’m outside of it), the fact I’m actually standing on a 4th story ledge, and the impeding storm heading our way with the wind already kicking up and creating a sail out of that late 1800’s dress I was wearing… that look upon my face isn’t all acting. ;)

Feel free to reblog this, we’ve received a ton of incredible response and I’m blown away by the talent I’ve been introduced to. Deadline for submissions will be March 18th.

The first piece of art from our recent Midnight photoshoot…
Photo: DividingMe - Wardrobe: Kambriel - Models: Kambriel, AcidPopTart & Crow Familiar
I cannot express in mere words how incredible this shoot was! To be able to create such magic with such talent! Kambriel remains one of my dearest mates, it was so wonderful to reconnect with her and to be able to create such art together. She of course is the fellow model and created the most amazing wardrobe. (Yes, even the hats!) And I would be terribly remiss if I did not credit the transfixing talent of the photographer, DividingMe. Such an honour to work with him!
