Knit fast, die warm

Knit Happens…

It’s comeback time, with crazy 3 fashion looks involving knitwear!

I teamed up with Jurgen de Boer for this fashion-like shoot inspired by Westknits, my current knitting design fav. Something very different from my usual ‘fantasy’ looks -take a look at our previous collab here– and a nice challenge!

And to top it all off: the Westknits Grizzly Bear prototype sweater

Crazy styling all by me of course, I think the accessories are on point: mini instax, fanny pack, vintage glasses, wild necklaces…

If you also think knitting is awesome, my advice is to check out ravelry for knitting & crochet inspiration, patterns and chatter. Or visit my personal ravelry page for my projects!

Tank you!

What do you get when you combine 6 awesome photographers, 14 selected models and one beautiful location for a Steampunk/Dieselpunk shoot? An epic day with epic pictures, that’s for sure. T(h)ank you, Cpt Constance Bashford, for organising this day!

My outfit was inspired by Tank Girl, with my own steampunk twist to it. Did I mention it was super difficult to model with glasses when you’re not used to it?

Here’s an early selection, I will add more pictures when I receive them.

The Wise and the Dreamer

From a very productive shoot with Laura from Laura Sheridan’s Art, a couple of the more toned down portraits: ‘The Wise’ and ‘The Dreamer’.

In the first two pictures I am wearing some pretty jewelry from Godesign Steampunk & Vintage Jewelry. You might recognise the deer from the last three pictures, it is from Ikea!  Dress and harness from Laura’s prop/outfit collection, hair and makeup by me.

Oil Painting Portraits

A couple of special portraits by Laura Sheridan’s Art! One of the special things in this shoot was that we actually lit the candles for a few seconds, and the flames were not photoshopped in. Laura knows about working with fire, so even though it was exciting, it wasn’t really scary.

Extraordinary Portraits – The Authentic

The candle shoulderpiece and red moonbelt were made by me, and the pretty steampunk jewelry I am wearing in the third picture is by Godesign Steampunk & Vintage Jewelry. I did my own make up, but the styling was something Laura and I did together.

One might recognise the outfit in the last picture, it is actually the same as in my last blog post. It is great to see how a photographer can change an outfit into their own perception of it!
