This year was my first WGT, and it was a strange one! I was determined to go, even though I was and am very ill. Had a good time, but only a few pictures to share. The first outfit is all by me including hat, the second outfit has a skirt by Skeletons in the Closet and a thrifted jacket. Here we go:

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.

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!

Wick Witch

Time to share the first images of my Wick Witch. The second picture is a wetplate collodion photograph I had made at Danse Macabre. Hard to capture with a phone camera, but I love it!

Mystic Shaman

Spook season is upon us! Are you ready for some dark, gothic-y goodness?

This is the Mystic Shaman that Jurgen de Boer and I created. Styling and makeup by me, beautiful necklace by CuNature.

Swamp Witch

A while ago I found this beautiful place very close to where I live, and I was lucky to find a photographer who wanted to work magic with me there. All costume pieces are from my own wardrobe: both headpieces, the golden corset and the tribal belt were handmade by me. Thanks to Darkashter/ Lilith Vanderstorme for shooting and processing!
