Nattestid and Gil Rivera

I really am so random with shoots and also very picky. Me and model Nattestid had been talking about shooting together since we worked together at the Queen of the Jungle event. Last minute she set up things with Gil Rivera Fotography and we had an amazing makeup artist, Mia TheMlook

So how could anything go wrong? Well...they didn't. Except for being in a cold studio because I complain about everything, some incredible shots came from this.

You can check out more images on my website or Facebook. Like the fanpage and you'll see lots more images even before I post them here!

Cake Boss and Who?

Earlier this month, I got to be the designer for a fashion show put on by Mika of Sugar & Spikes Casting and Kitty Crystal the Tattoed Artist.

Look! That's them!

It was a crazy day because we got hit with a bad snow storm and made driving not fun, but cake waits for no man! Funny thing, the original filming date was supposed to be on a day when we also got a big storm.

It was rush rush time fitting models and being selfish so I could get my hair and makeup done, haha. It was intense watching Kitty do the special effects makeup on the models. They got 'Walking Dead-afied.' And what was also just amazing was that Ashley from Cake Boss/Next Great Baker was a model for me. Whoa.

Once production gave us a 20 minute heads up, I started freaking out. We walked over to an unconventional runway and waited for the cue. The audience was not disappointed by the models and did I mention the most amazing cake that was brought? Can't tell you about it except that Mika and Kitty had a big part in it!

Not too sure when the episode will air - I think after the summer. Sucks waiting, but gives more time to plan a huge viewing party!

Queen of the Jungle...Long Overdue Recap

Back in January, on a freezing night, Brooklyn Wildlife and La Bella Roma transformed a small NYC lounge into the jungle! I was asked by Mika of Sugar & Spikes to provide clothing for the fashion show part of the night. Alongside killer make-up artists (Devin Dollface Alexis, Crystal Cakeface) and hair stylists (Gloria Espinoza), we made these girls show their animalistic side with Mika taming them as they made their walk into the crowd. (I've forgotten some names, let me know if you see who I've forgotten)

It was a fun night and the main event was a beauty pageant between burlesque performers and drag queens! Too many beautiful ladies all around.

Afterwards, me, my sister and her good friend hit up Otto's Shrunken Head in NYC and got glow in the dark drinks and danced to doo-wop. And of course, ended the evening with disco fries at the nearby diner. You can catch those adventures on my Instagram - SibylVain

Cynical Fashion Magazine Issue #1

I've worked quite a bit with mua Brittany Diaz and her main photographer, Madness Photography. They have been turning out images like crazy and doing big things, so it's only natural a magazine would follow.

Cynical Fashion Magazine will be released April 1st and I was so flattered to be asked to provide wardrobe for their first cover and for an editorial. Even more stoked that the featured model would be Allison Goldfire. Whoa.

Make sure you check it out and for more updates, add the Sibyl Vain Facebook
