I feel the waves turning back up.
This past week at Vex I worked 2 solid days on an inflatable train and jacket and it made me realize that I am definitely on the right path. I loved working on it, all through the challenges and insane amount of pleating. I wouldn’t want to be doing anything else. In that I am very thankful.

I have so many wonderful opportunities and shoots coming up, some I don’t want to mention just yet so as not to jinx them, but suffice to say as soon as they are done/definite you will know.
What I can tell you:

~ An outfit of mine worn by Apnea, shot by Steve Prue of TeamRockstarImages, will be featured on one of my favorite blogs, Haute Macabre! I’m not sure when it goes up, but believe you me I will be posting that EVERYWHERE once it is.
(A personal side note about Apnea/Amanda. She is such a wonderful, sweet, strong person and I am so glad to have gotten closer to her in the past few months as well as been able to dress her. I can’t wait to go back to the Ozarks to see her and Chase.)

~ I have beautiful photographic evidence of my cone boob garter dress (taken by Corwin Prescott, of course, worn by the bangin’ Stephy C)! It’s still not 100% perfected but I am much likely how it is coming along. This as well as a cone boob bra and a special girdle will be the only pieces in my ready to wear collection, Retrosity (debuting in March):

~ I am collaborating with a friend of mine, Lenora Jayne (her site here) to have her make drawings/paintings of some of my pieces! The first one I requested for her to take inspiration from is my Nostalgia For Nothing jacket (photo by Corwin, of Apnea):

Once in a while I am very lucky to wear another latex designer’s creations (in this case House of Bias) and have Corwin (again, :P) take a picture of me in them. I think this is one of my favorite shots of myself to date:

Three random thoughts of the day:
*Sometimes I look at my wrists and they look freakishly small, like they're skeletor wrists that will snap off at any minute.
*I think it might be fun to move to LA- not sure about constant summer/fall though.
*I am really into 3Ms right now: Modest Mouse, Matisyahu, & Mussorgsky.

And lastly, some personal visual inspiration:

Dress by Madeleine Vionnet, 1939.

“A Lady in a Fur Wrap,” El Greco.

Forgot where I got this, off someone’s tumblr. Anyone know and I’ll add the credit.
