Going Into Hiding!

Wait what? But it's the holidays and a new year - I can't possibly be going into hibernation?

Oh, but I am.

What does that mean?

-No shoots/events/etc

-Working on a new collection which will be debuted like whoa

-Updating the Etsy store with tons of pieces from past shoots & events

-Getting my act together

So until March...yes sure to check back for updates, sneak peaks, music nonsense & guess who's website IS FINALLY ready to go live for the new year?

Here's some awesome shots we did not too long ago.

Again Reagan?

I had the pleasure of shooting with photographer Reagan Lam and model Rachel Jean and Glamdoll Make Up Artistry.

Reagan always blows me away and I've only worked with him one other time - he was the first to shoot a guy's outfit I made. Go Reagan!

Rachel Jean I hadn't worked with yet or even talked much with prior to this shoot, so I was flattered she asked me to this shoot.

We started in the ghetto, but then moved location thanks to the sun now setting so friggin' early in the day. But I didn't care - look who was shooting, what could go wrong?


So here's two of my favorite shots and you can view the whole set on Reagan's Flickr Link Here

one-armed ruffled shrug / red sparkle ruffled crop top / velvet & leather tuxedo leggings

Sick slick little black dress

In This Moment @ Santos Party House

Do I even have to explain how I adore In This Moment?

OK, so I'm behind on listening to their new album, but great sound, meaningful lyrics and a front woman who is girly as anything, but still can kick your ass.

We rushed over to Santos Party House down town somewhere, haha, and according the online set times, were only going to catch like ten minutes of ITM.

Nope! Something went wrong with scheduling and stages, friend (who I dragged to this and probably hated me after) and I walked in an opener, but ITM was next. Interesting old school metal - don't know the opener's name.

It was just this perfect scene: you walk in from the cold hallway and are hit with the smell of weed and alcohol lingering above the packed floor of fans head to toe in black attire. The lights create a haze above the drunk floor and ITM sets up shop with a microphone stand covered in skulls that stands on a raised platform for singer Maria Brink to stand upon.

The sound overall was a bit scratchy to hear, but it was full speed ahead once started with new material at the ready. They pulled out "Forever" and "Beautiful Tragedy" and I was happy. Am really stoked to get the new album - sounds a lot harder than their previous - sucked I couldn't get to the merch stands to pick it up.

I promised my friend to leave early, but next thing, there were two songs left and I said, let's hear what the last will be. Well, it was 'THE' song I wanted to hear and we stayed. "Daddy's Falling Angel"

Senses Fail

BTW - Senses Fail's new album The Fire really has grown on me and no doubt - they're best album musically. Really great, go give it a listen.

Electric Factory
November 27, 2010

OMG! I couldn't go to their show the night before Thanksgiving at Starland, so I figured I would try to get in to the Philly show.

The damn show sold out and I took the chance that my request went through for tickets being I didn't get confirmation (but I was pretty confident it was all good). But we make the trip and firgured if we couldn't get into that show, we would go across town and see Foxxy Shazam!

So it was a win-win situation if you ask me.

But...I walk up, give my ID and low and behold - two tickets are mine!

I made the mistake of not asking for set times, b/c my friend and I got stuck watching ALL the bands on the bill. Late show.

Balance and Composure was good, but I really wish I could have done without Title Fight and then Bayside. I was never into Bayside - even with a Weezer cover, meh.

Senses Fail was amazing. It's been awhile and I was loving all the older songs i.e. those off Let It Enfold You. I haven't listened to that album in forever. And they mainly stuck with older tunes, only a couple off the new album. They did do "Lifeboats" - my favorite.

The music sounded perfect and their singer was insane - drunk? who cares - Stellar performance, running around, doing acrobats and improvising when microphone dropped and seeing if he could sing in a handstand.

Left before the last song - don't know what that was or if there was an encore. But I was happy.

Videos! Oh baby...oh dear...

New project from Craig Owens (ex-chiodos member, cinematic sunrise) with Matt Good (from first to last) and some other people.

It was weird b/c it said you can 'download and uncensored version' and I'm like - huh? Yea, you want to see this dumb broad's boobies, I guess that's what it means. There was no reason for her to be naked. Sorry "model" chick, you got screwed into being a piece of meat.

Anyways! Song sounds like a FFTL wannabe song. Eh. I want to hear more though...


I loves him mucho - this song GROWS ON YOU like whoa. I kept saying that was Lil' Jon, but haha, I forgot about T-Pain.

So I gave you 'blah' and now I give you 'yes!' PS - Kesha's new video for "We R Who We R" is GREAT! The make up and hair is RIDICULOUS and I'm trying to work it in a shoot; HOWEVER, there's advertising that sickens me, so I'm not posting it here. Yep.

AP Tour 2010 Fall

AP Tour at Starland Ballroom!
November 26, 2010

Good show, good music, just goodness.

Polar Bear Club - Just another band I've heard so many good things about, but never checked out. They do live up to the hype and was completely into their set.

Emarosa - We all know my Emarosa/Jonny Craig's voice obsession, so they do no wrong. Except playing only like 5 songs! What the hell? They did play the last song off the new album and of course "Set It Off Like Napalm," but I'm still mad at whoever gave them a short amount of time to play.

August Burns Red - I saw these guys ages ago and remembered they were good. But dude. This confirmed their live performances are great. Band members working the stage, a frontman who connected so well with the crowd and then stellar guitarwork. But the strobe lights gave my sister and I headaches.

So we left before Bring Me the Horizon, though we weren't going to stay anyways, but I heard the crowd went bananas for these guys.

Good job AP Tour organizers - I thought the line-up was pretty damn nice.

If you're bored, check out my interview with JB of August Burns Red HERE

Shop Is In Swing!

FINALLY!!! I listed things in my Etsy store. It's been over a year, maybe even two years since I last did.

Take advantage - I'm trying to clear out items that have been chilling in my stock for a bit and so will be listing things a little cheaper than retail prices.

Sneak a peek, check it out, tell a friend and let me know what you think :)

Sunday, November 21, 2010

Listing Things Soon!

GAH! I just finished writing up all my listings for the re-launch of my Etsy Store:

I'm going to officially list them tomorrow, so get ready!

Back to working on new items & eating cookie dough - yum!

Here's some images to hold you over. Taken by Drop Photography.

Wednesday, November 17, 2010


OK, so I'm weird and haven't posted anything on this or yea. But let it be known Raquel Reed is my favorite alternative model and I would die to work with her.

Well guess what if you didn't know - that statement up there is so past tense. Because I finally did get the chance to work with her and I'm still so stoked about it.

My photographer, Barrie Blau was shooting with Raquel for a feature in Alt Noir Magazine and by luck, I was asked to bring some wardrobe.

We ended up shooting a couple looks - Barrie is an amazing photographer and Raquel is always perfection, so hello. It was magic and I was just on set, standing around like a dork because designers on set are either 1. Diva bitches who try to take total control or 2. Silent stalkers ready to help if you call them over.

I was the second (well that better be how I was).

I'll post pictures later - check my Facebook for them all!

But here's an even bigger treat...Raquel shot a video with Jeffree Star (who I adore) and it was filmed by this sick as hell artist Worm Carnevale. Seriously, those three's like the holy trinity or something.

Oh yea, why am I bringing this up? Guess who made the dress Raquel is in? Yea, that would be me. DUDE!


I missed them at Warped Tour this year! to stalk them when they played at School of Rock. woo!

They played mainly the older stuff. So being lazy, I'm not going to go and look to see if they were touring only on older material. But I know I'm right and they did just release a new album like earlier this year.

Ok, anyways.

I was happy because I knew most of the songs and it was the same ol'show I expected and find entertaining. Frontman Dennis rolling around, screaming his head off and the crowd loving it. Then singer Shawn singing like a diva. And we can't forget typical faux-core/screamo stage moves with pre-crabcore unison dancing. I guess that's a good way of saying it.

But I will give it to them that the music sounded just as it does on their records (or they were pulling an Ashley Simpson) and the response from the crowd was just love.

However! "Seduction" was not played - unacceptable.

Fun times and I didn't steal their drummer, so I am free to attend future shows.

What's this? They're touring in the early Spring with Motionless in White? Count me in!

Quickie Update

My schedule is BOOKED! It's like one thing after another...and this is nothing compared to what things hopefully one day will be.

Two articles due tomorrow. Then we move on to find story ideas. Shoot Sunday.

But most importantly - my one sister is in town for the weekend with her darling little girls (got to see another sister and her darlings last weekend - it's a tri-state thing). Then there's a most important hang out with friends hopefully going down.

Did I mention having to make one or two things for the shoot? Shh! Don't tell Miss Barrie Blau or Kami!

News to post, but I'll do it tomorrow or Saturday.

Lesson of the week:

Out of boredom comes insanity, stupidness & creating things that aren't there. If only people knew the soap opera that is going through my head.

::Intro to Downfall of Us All::

I don't know excatly how you write the 'duh duh duh da' part, so hum it to yourself.

I totally am out of the loop! Or I just forget really easily. A Day to Remember has a new album coming out soon? Shut up! I probably could get an advance or unfortunately find it downloadable somewhere. But I'll wait till my sister buys her copy or they post it on Myspace to hear it.

They also did this series to go alongside the upcoming album "What Seperates Me From You." So I guess you buy the new album and you get the final episode of the series - bands are getting smarter with getting you to buy their albums. Good! I just bought two new CDs yesterday.

Need to get back into beefing up my vinyl collection though.

Here's the episode I caught

OMG! UGH! I am SO pissed off right now - I got really busy in October that I lost track of the CMJ Marathon and guess who was there? Dead to Me! I have been waiting years to see them. Break my heart and the line-up they were on would have been amazing to check out. I'm really bummed...


Anyways -

Caught The Summer Set last week. Saw them on Warped this year and it was cute, good times. Plus, I got to be an honorary mom again. Cute show, especially at the end when they had everyone (well the majority of the crowd) sit and have an acoustic sing-a-long.

Wednesday, November 3, 2010

Damn Straight.

Finally got to listen to the new Senses Fail album, The Fire.

It's OK. It did take me a bit to really get into the last album and The Fire feels like a great continuation of the previous. I was interested to hear any differences in the sound because guitarist Heath left - I'm assuming it was before the record got started.

Not too much seems different, but I only listened to the album twice and via Myspace. Really feeling "Lifeboats."

Then I find on PunkNews this video. It's my boyfriend...I mean the it's the singer of Senses Faill talking about pop-rock boy bands and it's pretty interesting. (note me being funny)

I mean, you can say that lyrically, Senses Fail provides deeper topics, with real problems and I can say that I'm defintely one of the fans that connect with A LOT of the songs and yea, they've helped me through tough times.

Whereas bands like All Time Low, what really is the meaning in their songs? Most people do agree it's music you can just write off as pop-rock that'll just fade. But I also would beg to differ that NSync was meaningless bubblegum pop, BUT it also had the power to make a difference. I listened to that music during hard times and while the lyrics kind of mean nothing, it was music to get me away.

So yea. Even when music sucks, it still can make a difference.

On a side note - LA Ink is over for the season. I really think Jesse James and Kat should have been smart and not had him go to her gallery opening. She seemed so pissed over the press asking her questions about him - well duh! He's right there. If he really cared, he would have said like 'It's your night, I want to be there, but with what is going on with me, I don't want to bring negative attention.'

Or go through the back door!

Jeffree Star looked fabulous! Really sucks his New Jersey tour date was cancelled. I think I know why - boooo....

Giuseppina Magazine

The lovely Chloe Von Creepy asked to wear one of my dresses for her Giuseppina Magazine feature.

Go buy the magazine or find more images on Giuseppina's Facebook or Chloe's page. It was for their Halloween special issue and I couldn't think of a model more appropriate for this holiday than Chloe.

Check it out!

Red sparkle mermaid dress (wish you could have seen the whole dress, but she's also wearing that dress for my runway show at Reflections this year)

Here's some other images taken that day!

That's her boyfriend sitting next to her.

Quick Update

I actually do have images to upload - OMG! Just wait.

November is booked with concerts, shoots, store re-launching, family & friend going-ons and just the everyday randomness.

Randomness from yesterday involved watching a bunch of bands walking around and making teenage girls freak out.

I did however make one Halloween costume that I wore yesterday, however...everyone said I looked normal. Well, normal for me that is. Guess I didn't try hard enough.

Halloween is in two days! Tomorrow is the big night for going out. I'm starting out at an insane asylum and then headed out to the pier. Seriously, that's my night. Hopefully we'll make it home in one piece.

Had a shoot over this weekend. It was kind of last minute, but everything came together in the end and the two 'quick edit' photos I've gotten are crazy awesome.

My main model Megan was on set (and she even beat me to the studio!) and we had Cassie of CT Make Up Artistry doing hair & make up.

A second model for the day didn't happen, but we turned someone else on set into a punk rock superhero - those pictures will happen later.

model: Megan McGill

mua/hair: CT Make Up Artistry

photo: Drop Photography (use to be Scott Mack, but he changed it on us) lighting bolt shrug, red metallic crop top, hole-ly leggings; pin cushion red pvc bustier, velvet leggings

Totally watching Jeeper Creepers 2 right now. Just because you get Justin Long to cameo in it, does not make it a good movie. WTF is this?

Oh La La! Musical Boys

Last minute, I was whisked away somewhere close to the city for I didn't know exactly what.

My friend's friend's brother played a cute set with his band I Am Fighting.

It was an acoustic set, so you got this wholesome, prettyboy pop-rock going on. Also because of this, the attendee up-front and dead center was their drummer, who couldn't play that night...

If you're in the mood for pop-rock/power pop good tunes...check them out! Plus, I hear they're opening up for a teen heart throb aroun dhere in Jersey sometime soon.

Second part of this post -

They were one of the bands that played that night for the grand opening of this new coffee cafe/scene gathering place that opened in Lyndhurst (New Jersey if you didn't know). I have to go back and check it out again because the one girl with us went to order coffee and all they had was straight up coffee and tea - I really wanted a latte or something.

But as I was looking around at the framed show posters...I put two and two together. This venue is from the same people of Mainstage, which was out in Pompton Lakes - they did a lot more, but I'm not the official biographer.

Creepshow Photos

I haven't shot with Julie of Creepshow Photography in FOREVER!

And I still haven't.

These come from the clothing that I left her when we met at Sex Slaves show/Toxic Vision fashion show event.

The concept involved one of the photographer's favorite things - gas masks! Plus, the smoke, totally not something added in by Photoshop. I want to play with smoke now!

Photos: Creepshow Photography

Model: Jezzter

Clothing: all mine! disco bodysuit, silver pixie dress & checkered skirted leotard

Oh, and as I was going through her Flickr, she had this one photo that the model had on a silver top of mine. I like it - total rock star.

Model: Nikky Starr

I Play with Make Up!

Do I look like a drag queen now? I aspire to.

Getting ready for Halloween weekend next week - I didn't this year for my birthday have a marathon celebration, so I think I'm turning Halloween into a marathon celebration. I got Saturday down, but what to do Thursday & Friday?

I going to be Kat Von D one of the days! I did my eyes different, so don't think I'm crazy or anything.

I was SO in awe over the artist on LA Ink tonight - the mural he did, OMG! It was just amazing and how perfectly he captured facial expressions was so impressive.

I forget what's on the menu for next week with that show, but I really want Ruthless at the other shop fired. She probably was casted to cause drama and act like a bitch to Amy. Casted just like Aubrey and did anyone else see Angel from Tough Love 2 on the show last week? She's cool though, not Aubrey.

Getting back in the swing of writing - two interviews this week! One was today and the other is Friday. Can't wait for all the shows in November!

Plus I'm getting back in the swing of something else...SELLING THINGS! We're taking photos of items to list this weekend, so get ready!

Tuesday, October 19, 2010


I'm not a huge fan of 3OH!3 (especially live), but they're still cool in my book. I caught their new video for "Double Vision" today and LOVED IT!


I am SICK SICK just SICK of advertising in of all places - music videos. I know it's a part of life, but this one company is pissing me off.

First, Lady Gaga's "Telephone" video lingers a bit too long on the security guard searching on a website. The company - plenty of fish dating website.

So here I am, watching this really cleverly done video where you're scrolling down a website and it's really cute how people are seen and move about - seriously, watch it.

BUT! A couple of times, 'plenty of' is displayed prominently. If I have to see this damn website advertise in videos one more time, I'm going to scream. I had a good friend who met her current beau on that site, but now this site has lost all respect I had for it.

Whatever. I just feels it insults the viewer b/c we're so use to ads in the sidebars of pages and here, we're supposed to just enjoy a visual to a song, but I guess to keep it 'realistic' (though I've never seen a site like that)...they had to ad an advertisement. Thanks.

I Went Where?

Oh yea...I hung out with the cool kids last night at the Suicide Silence / Mychildren Mybride / The Tony Danza Tap Dancing Extravaganza / Molotov Solution show at Starland Ballroom.

There were seven bands on the bill and I knew that 5:30 doors was not going to be early enough - even arriving at 8pm, I walked in with 4 1/2 bands to go and I forgot my earplugs.

It turned out to be a good night though - cool people to hang out with and make fun of the crowd, not a sold out show, but the floor was full and a good amount of people at the back bar.

Molotov Solution was good, though I don't really remember much else about them. I've been dying to see Tony Danza... just b/c the name is rad as hell, but it's definitely 'guy's only' music. Mychildren Mybride REALLY got my attention and hello, their one guitarist was cute and the bassist was Asian (I like them kind of boys).

Seriously though, great performance and the music was a bit more girl-friendly, so I got into it, with those small melodic moments and it wasn't just 'rawr rawr rawr!'

Suicide Silence cracked me up. I love this shit!

After MCMB's set, it was like a mass exodus out the venue, which I thought was strange, but I guess the kiddies needed fresh air, merch or smoke a cig b/c they're 'so cool.' The majority of the kids came back for Suicide, but I was surprised that quite a handful left. Hm.

The singer of Suicide is crazy - it's like his mouth doesn't even move and he's with the pterodactyl screams and then switches to the growling and yea. But I noticed, he had the audience sing a lot - I guess someone can't do both live, haha. I honestly really don't know what was up with that b/c I really don't know their music.

It was an hour set and I was kinda done after half an hour, but I stuck it out and decided upon finding my own super tall, really skinny, covered in tatoos, some-kind-of-core band's screamer to kidnap. Or become friends with, whatever comes first.

No Way Dude!

Literally the day after I had my car accident at the beginning of the summer, I was going to take almost a two hour drive to be on set and maybe provide some wardrobe for a music video.

I was stoked and looking back, if it wasn't for that, I may still be only driving my car back and forth to the corner store - OK, maybe to work, but that's pushing it.


Unfortunately, my clothing wasn't a good fit in the options pool, but I kinda had that feeling going in. HOWEVER! I caught wind of the video being released and got all gigglely!

Wait for 2:20-ish, the girl bouncing around her room is wearing my tiger & mesh leotard and mini lace tutu. WOOHOO!!!

The director did such a great job with this video - I remember hearing the treatment and being like 'huh?' This came out so cute! Plus, if you look real close in the wizard/Harry Potter vingette, my one model, Megan, is an extra.

I am so loving the concept and how it played out, plus it's a damn catchy, cute song.

band: We Are the In Crowd
song: "Both Sides of the Story"

Get Me Away from Punknews!

Haha, I love that site.

It's just that's one of the sites I scan in preparation for interviews and it's that time again...

So I'm looking up on a band and the comments totally put them down like 'whoa' in regards to the line-up of their current tour. I saw them once or twice and remembered their set won me over and was pretty damn cool.

It was like all the late twenty-somethings on that damn site are complaining about how one of their 'man crush' bands got on the bill and so I FINALLY check out this band they're in love with...Polar Bear Club. Long time coming b/c it's damn good.

But what is it with boys and only liking music where the lead singer sounds like an older dude who's smoked a bunch and comes across as the dude you kick back a few beers with talking about nonsense?

haha - It's music like Against Me!, Hot Water Music, Four Year Strong...oh wait, Against Me! are now 'sell outs' for some reason and I think FYS are appealing too much to the younger crowd, so they suck too. But you get the type of bands I'm talking about.

(For the record...I enjoy any of those bands listed above, but that's basically the shit I read about them).

Back to setting up shoots and researching and I think I'll revisit Street Dogs. I'm a little scared though, going to a Suicide Silence show this weekend - what did I get myself into?

So I AM Normal!

I found this really interesting article about "26 being the new 18" and since I'm sorta, almost, kinda in a few at that age...definitely had to read this.

They presented how it's harder for teens to transition into young adulthood and soon after, become independent adults nowadays due to the economy, parents babying teens even more than with past generations and with insurance being extended to 26 on parents' plans and also with people getting married later.

So here I think, sitting as a college graduate, living back home, shopping for a husband...I mean looking at America's youngest billionaires online (haha) and come across this article.

Really valid point that also relates to something I read a year ago about the 'hipster movement' where those damn hippies live off their 'trust funds/savings' and become 'artists', wearing thrift wears, drinking crappy beer, complaining about not making money, but living in $3000/month apartments with Whole Foods stocked fridges.

Sorry, I hate the hipsters.

But also, we're at a point where this world is so fucked up that a lot of these people grew up, seeing the downward spiral of the economy and you know what? Maybe they realize it's going to suck one way or another, so why settle for some dumbass, boring office job that will support you, but ultimately steal your soul?

Maybe it's time for the 20-somethings to take advantage of that old phrase 'You can be whatever you want to be when you grow up' and that's why during the process and after obtaining a college diploma, we're out to not be a part of corporate America.

And that's cool. I mean, some days I wish I could have a really nice job with the cutest apartment (like my one good friend), but then others I'm caught in this make believe world where we dress up and pretend everday (like Lady Gaga).

However...there's so many independent companies it seems nowadays, which I know some people think it brings people of the scene together, but really it's just us being how we've always been - selfish, in it for ourselves and striving for some larger corporation to buy us out and make a nice profit off it.

Yea. Where the hell did that come from?

Ohhh....Lil' Kim's "Crush On You" video just came on VH1 Soul - that was back in 1997 and I still remember the lyrics and still think it's an awesome video with the all the color vingettes and I still protest - it's BLUE NOT PURPLE!

omg! Now Isis featuring Jada Kiss? Hip hop, R&B, rap and all that good stuff will always have my heart...

Tuesday, October 12, 2010

Check it out!

Ok, so I totally made myself dizzy updating and writing on my laptop while it balanced on knee and weeble-woobled all around, making me kinda sick. haha!

So. You knwo that music video I did some wardrobe for? It was Kimberly Korn's first video for her song, "Broken Inside." Great! Now it's stuck in my head again, haha.

This lady is seriously talented and such a sweetheart! She's been doing a lot of shows lately and I haven't made it out for one b/c of work. Rats!

Thursday, October 14th, she'll be performing at R Bar in NYC. Check it out if you're in town!

I hope to have some behind the scenes photos in the near future before the video comes out. woo!

Tailored sheets...

Oops! Wrong project involving Jonny Craig.

Let's talk his solo project. Last Sunday, ending two crazy, music-filled weekends, my sister and I checked out Jonny Craig at School of Rock doing what he does best - sing while having throat problems.

His voice is always to die for, but I swear! This boy always has a sore throat or something every time I see him perform.

We thought we were going to just make it for him, but nope. Caught the end of Fight Fair (cute pop-rock who tried being tougher than they were) and also Mod Sun, who has been in other bands (one being Scary Kids Scaring Kids) and came at us with hip hop/techno beats. While I tried so hard not to like this kid, I wound up getting sucked in and if he's ever on another tour, I'll be sure to catch his set.

However, he must has mentioned how Jonny is up next about a hundred times.

Jonny Craig was awesome - it never seems like he is singing b/c it's like he barely opens his mouth and this ferocious sound just come barreling out. Amazing!

And what's this I hear about him singing on the next Dance Gavin Dance album? WHOA!

There's so many more concerts to come for the fall, I'm stoked AND I'm just jumping back in a getting in on interviews. I might be interviewing (again) one of my favorite bands that I did a blah job last time, but here's the chance to redeem myself.

OMG! Just saw the first edited photo from the shoot I did over the weekend! DIES!!!

What the...

It took me forever to listen to the new single from My Chemical Romance.

I'm a long time fan, blame it on my sister, I'm from Jersey and yea, how could I not be into them?

So I first saw the video with the full song and the lyrics included like a Disney sing a long. Not ammused at all. Really guys? REALLY?! What is this - though I couldn't stop singing it for like the rest of the night.

Now I finally see the short video/ad for the upcoming album with this song as the background.

I'm still not gaga for the song, but speaking of...this clip is like My Chem in the "Telephone" Lady Gaga video. Ugh! Not them too!?

But I like the clothing, unfortunately it's going to be another concept album and not something more like their orginal stuff, so we'll see. And hey, Mikey and Frank are still cutie patooties. haha!

Ok, seriously - why the hell does Kat Von D's hair look different in every single scene?! It's gotta be a wig, but does it change color too?

Thursday, September 30, 2010

I Tried!

I tried so hard not to like this damn song, but I gave in...

"Egoista" by Belinda ft. Pitbull

Pitbull is mad sexy in my book, then the clothing drew me in and then the song just got under my skin.

Speaking of singers...

Jonny Craig this weekend!

Plus, there's a couple of singers (obviously not Jonny Craig, haha) who I want to get clothing to. Luckily I'm planning on con-ing my way into bombarding them with free clothes at shows coming up. Finally! I have connections, haha!

Too much sleep = werid ass dreams

Last night I had a dream that combined my day job and high school into one big maze and then I started speaking Spanish and French - what was going on there?!

That's what you get for sleeping for 12 hours.

This weekend I provided half of the wardrobe for a music video. So cool and I might be able to post behind the scenes photos soon.

I'm getting ready to get items listed in my Etsy - it's just such a daunting task b/c I have SO many things accumulating in my stock over the past year and I just want to get rid of them - I might do like a 'Buy one, Get one half off' or something.

I'm also looking forward to the CMJ Music Marathon this year. I'll probably be heading out to a few shows. It's just driving me crazy b/c I want the schedule to be announced NOW! I work till 9pm during the week and so it's hard to make shows when the headliners usually go on at that time. I like the CMJ Marathon b/c a lot of the shows are late - but now who will go with me?

SO many shows coming up and I'm actually more excited to hopefully get out and start shooting again - I miss editing photos actually.

Here's another image from Reflections. It was the last look and my collection was of freak show acts. This was supposed to be like 'P.T. Barnum and his Fiji Mermaid.' I wish I had done a bit more, but hell! That blazer took A LOT of effort and the dress kills.

So they became another freak show - Prom Attendees (if you know me, you understand how I become ill over traditional teenage events)

Harlow Magazine Fashion Reviews

I just dominated a whole tray of mini Cinnabon poppers that you get from like Costco and heat up and there's ten mini morsels of Cinnabon fixes. Not exactly like what you get at the mall, but yummy. So happy before watching Hoarding: Buried Alive.

Really cool shoot this weekend! I'm too sure how much I'm to talk about it...

But while fashion life has calmed down and I can FINALLY get things listed for purchase, day job life is hectic and sometimes annoying. In a month I'll be complaining how boring it is.

Here's shots from the second issue of Harlow Magazine with Sharon TK on the cover - my god, doesn't even look like her! That girl is awesome as hell. Cute magazine too!

I submitted things for review and was stoked when I open the magazine and see Audrey Kitching wearing something of mine. Woo! I thought they were going to have other models, but cool - Audrey and the mag's editor wearing my stuff.

They said the fit didn't work, but if that's the only con, can't complain - b/c I mean hey, those things I sent fit me and I'm 5'9, 135lbs. They are 5'4 and super tiny.

But...notice how my label name is spelled wrong with the CORRECT spelling RIGHT below it in the website address? So many people are doing this to me lately and I think I'm going to start being a diva about it.

More magazines coming out soon where you can spot my clothing :)

Reflections 2010! Pt. 1

for more info and fun

OK! My collection shown at Reflections was inspired by sideshow and circus acts. Each look was a particular character and my interpretation of them. Check out the photos below.

I'm going around stealing photos and waiting for more - I really wish I had enlisted my one friend to take photos with my camera. Oh wells...

SO much happened at Reflections 2010, held at Polaris nightclub in Philadelphia. It's crazy how you go in, thinking there's like 8 hours till your show takes the stage and you can kick back and slowly get things together and then it's like BAM! 30 minutes before the models take the stage.

Got there after lunchtime, went and got food, started setting up then it was like - hurdles popped up, got caught in conversations, went back and forth with what outfit each model should wear...that my friend is how 2pm quickly becomes 8pm.

It was cool because there was artwork being displayed and me and the main woman behind the event, Rebecca Marchand, are big AFI freaks and there was AFI-related pieces that put a smile on my face.

This is Part 1 of the my Reflections experience and I guess, I'm going to start with the end result - it was awesome! If you missed it, you suck.

I did leave around midnight, which is when the real fun began, but a 2 hour drive back home was not something I wanted to tackle at 2am on 5 hours of sleep.

I'll end with images. So far it's all I've found and are super awesome. This photographer shot Reflections last year and his images were my favorite of the bunch and this year was no different.

Sex Slaves & Toxic Vision

Yea, so it may have been back in August, but hell! I wanna talk about it.

August 21st at Santos Party House in NYC for bands, fashion and one drunk birthday dude.

My sister and I get stuck in Chinatown trying to get there b/c there was the one festival that weekend in Little Italy and they had a street blocked off - some crazy guy was the 'traffic director,' which meant no cops were around and so he just yelled at us if we didn't move fast enough.

We made perfect timing though - things were running a little behind and thank god too, b/c the music was SO loud between sets, we went downstairs to escape it between acts.

My photographer/friend/Sex Slaves worshiper was also there - doing what, you may ask...keeping guard of the Sex Slaves' merch table. haha, she's too funny. And...takes really cool shots of those boys at shows (just not of that night). Check it -

We walked in on the one band playing, London from Daisy of Love is in it - don't know, wasn't too impressed.

One of the best parts of the night was the crazy man of honor, Samuel Valentine, who was happy and drunk as it was his birthday. That plus his accent made his introductions of people quite entertaining.

Like I said - perfect timing. Toxic Vision showed her fall collection 'Widowmaker' and it was bananas. I wish I had the body (and monies) to buy some stuff. From highly embellished bustiers, to monster fur sleeves to her standard spandex pants, I was so enjoying everything.

My favorite went early on - just covered in crosses = love. (Totally stole this from her etsy:

After were The Sex Slaves and omg - DIES! Music = fun and crazy as hell, Band Members = hot as hell, Overall review is AWESOMENESS.

Gotta get into this band and stalk them, haha. Check it -

Almost Here!

Just about a week away is the Reflections Art & Fashion event. SOOOOOO much stuff I need to get together - I feel really behind this summer, but it was kinda a stressful/depressing summer.

Anyways! for more information on everything and how you can buy tickets beforehand, what to expect and more.

Of course my clothing line is always number one in my heart, but I've been really bummed I haven't written for the magazine I write for in about two months - ouch. I'm looking ahead though to all the great concerts coming up in the fall - free tickets! haha

But now at my day job, they're slowly making me a telemarketer. What the...
I'm just such a spaz on the phone, I stumble over my words like whoa - I guess that's why all my interviews had to be scripted, which was a complaint I received from a couple people helping me become better in my writing.

I'll leave you with another killer image from Tiffany Ann Photography, featuring Chloe Von Creepy (who is also going to be at Reflections!). More from Tiffany Ann with Trailer Darling & Miss Mischief modeling.

Rock n' Roll Fashion Show

Ok, so about two weeks ago...

I was SO grateful to be asked again by the ladies of Sugar n' Spikes to participate in their second fashion show event. Bands of the night were TSI, Panzie & Hate in the Box (whose lead singer, Rainbow Blight, is the sweetest!).

My collection went first, followed by the debut of Alina Butnaru's intimate apparel awesomeness (have to find her link, b/c she was so cool) and then last was Natasha NYC ( - and dude! If I had known better, I would have been freaking out being in her presence, but of course I'm dumb sometimes)

Ok! So here's some of the choice images - I'm waiting on video

These were taken by Knightmare6 Photography and are my favorites so far -

I'll be adding more to Facebook - so add me there if you haven't already (link to the right)

Forest rocking polka dot leggings, white pvc bustier & tassle shrug with hobo bow gloves. She killed it!

Olivia in pink leopard garter dress (accessories her own) - so cute!

Ilena Nova being Wonder Woman in red metallic bodysuit and polka dot peak-a-boo vest, which you really can't see, but isn't this shot to die for?

Gorgeous Brandy D in leopard leotard and revamped vest

Awesome Sasha being lady-like in a high waisted sparkle skirt and leopard crop top, belt does make it look one piece, but it's not

Tons more images from Tiffany Ann Photography to come, review of another fashion show/concert I attended, magazine mentions and a sorta top secret project I'm apart of.

Sugar & Spikes Fashion Show and Concert

I'm going INSANE!

Two days to finish up everything and I'm SO behind. On top on all of this, my mom springs on me that tomorrow I have to take her and a friend into the city because we're going to be in the Dr. Oz audience, that's out of left field.

So excited for this - come out and join us - I heard there's free liquor being served from 8pm - 9pm (which is probably when I'm on or right before).

And if you're not in the NYC area...check out The Pinkies Out event in Philly to benefit which has their fashion & art event in September and I'm a part of that too :)

Less Than A Week!

Haha, thought I was going to write 'Less Than Jake' for the title.

It's less than a week before the group show I'm in organized by Sugar & Spikes, being held at Knitting Factory in Brooklyn, NY, August 19th - OMG!

Flyer after a short obsession...

I had been hearing about 'Bordello Shoes' a lot more recently, first by one model I worked with, T.C., and then again at the shoot I was apart of the end of July. I never looked for them until T.C. had a photo on the Facebook.

O. M. G.

I never knew, well I had seen these shoes before, however...I never knew the extent to which these shoes were bananas. I seriously want these purple ones.
