I wanted to show you my vintage vampire postcards that I recently found from a few years ago. It was fun mixing doing spookiness with pinup.
Hope you enjoyed these. There may be one that you might have seen on my Instagram. Please like, comment and follow if you haven’t already. HeHe. Thank you for all your support and again, HAPPY HALLOWEEN!
I couldn’t resist the urge to post yet another picture of my heavy metal sister Rhonda Burnett. As a new ritual, I should put a new makeup picture of her every week. Hehehe. The reason for posting about her again, not that I need one, is because of her incredible makeup look that turned herself into Maleficent. She looks absolutely stunning and if we lived closer I know we’d be doing our makeup together almost daily.
Enjoy another one of Rhonda’s wonderful makeup looks. I’m thinking of attempting this makeup job in the future. We shall see.
For part 2 of this shoot, my inspiration was still the “Victorian Lady” theme obviously but I wanted to dress and pose how a burlesque dancer from the early 1900’s would’ve dressed. I definitely did my research on this considering burlesque is a major passion of mine but I also took inspiration from one of my favorite television shows, “Murdoch Mysteries,” which is a brilliant Canadian show that I recommend to everyone.
I love the second hat fascinator from Debra Shirley and it worked perfectly with my Victorian corset, my fishnets that I stoned myself, and my other accessories. I wanted to do both outside and inside shots since this is a little bit more of a “PEEK A BOO” shoot but still “CLASSY AS ALWAYS!” That’s a true burlesque performer.
Hope you enjoy my second photoshoot images. All makeup and hair done by myself and this my very own costume. Photos taken by the best, Nick Sorat!
Normally I never really show behind the scene pictures on here unless I really enjoyed the shoot. This last shoot I did I really enjoyed. It was a photographer named Hamayak Hakopian or “Hami” that I had shot with a lot in the past but hadn’t seen in a few years. We always kept in contact but with our schedules, it was hard to book a shoot. Finally a few weeks ago we did. We shot at Lumino Studios, where I did my pinup Valentine’s shoot, and our shoot took place in the Emerald Room of the studio house, perfect for me since that’s my birthstone.
I had such a nice time with him. He brought in an EXTREMELY TALENTED Hair Stylist who brought my curls to life named Elisa Lara who was such a darling. I donned a new emerald green corset, appropriate for where I was shooting, my swarovski crytal fishnet stockings and my 7 and a half tall dance stiletto booties with matching crystals. I felt absolutely beautiful in my burlesque wear.
Hami is such a sweet and very professional photographer and I enjoy our work relationship a lot. I’m so excited to see the actual shots from this shoot. In the meantime, I decided to give you all a little tease. Elisa took some behind the scene shots of me while I was getting photographed and I loved the look of them so much that I decided to post them here to get you all ready for the actual photoshoot images. Enjoy!
You can find Hami through Hama Hakopian on Facebook and Instagram under @hamiecool and you can find Elisa and her work through Instagram under @glambyElisa
A few weeks ago I did Pinup Valentine’s shoot for a magazine. It was organized and planned by Bettie La Rose, which who put together the holiday shoot I did in December. She is so awesome and love working with her. This was another group shoot and it was nice seeing a lot of familiar faces with both the other models and the photographers. It was nice meeting some new people as well. It’s always a great feeling to work with people that are really easy to get along with. It gives a positive dynamic to everyone. This shoot was a lot of fun to do.
The first few photos is by Bryon Love. The other girl in one of my pictures is my friend and model Jessy Dodd.
The second group of photos below are by Stephen Fitzsimons. Check out both of their Facebook pages to see more of his work.
Hope you enjoy part one of my Valentine Pinup photos. I’m going to post them in different parts like I did with my holiday shoot and get everyone into the romantic mood in time for Valentine’s Day.
Check out these sexy and naughty burlesque style photos. These were taken by photographer, Stephen Fitzsimons. Happy Holidays to all!
