Even though I’m always open to a direct message for commissions and prices for both my husband and I, there is a new shop we are using to buy already created pieces right away. Definitely check it out when you can and leave your comments there and and down below here. Most of the pieces shown are one of a kind so get it while you can. Again, if you have any questions, you can dm me on twitter @carliesorat or Nima Sorat at @inqtanqor leave your questions and information down below or on Ko-Fi!
Are you in the mood for a personal illustration of yourself, favorite comic character, portraits, landscapes, buildings/architecture, or more? Then I have a wonderful illustrator for you.
It is none other than my husband Nima Sorat. I know I may sound biased but he’s an extremely talented artist and individual. We met at the Academy of Art University in San Fransisco and before he even graduated, he had already established himself as a published illustrator. His first book he did is called, “Monster Attack Network,” and I can’t tell you how proud I was of him when he had his own booth at the San Diego Comic Con!
The second book he did was called, “Graveslinger,” which is one of my favorites. You can find this book plus “Monster Attack Network,” online to purchase and I definitely recommend it. Again, I’m trying to not be biased. Nima’s work is amazing and the writing is fantastic and I’m very proud of his accomplishments.
If you are interested in getting any kind of illustration, paintings, or art work done by Nima, you can comment here below or you canmessage him through his twitter which is https://twitter.com/inqtanq(@inqtanq) and he you can talk about any custom work, commissions, and prices. Definitely check him out and commission him for your next project. You won’t regret it!
Good morning everyone, wishing you all a happy Sunday. I woke up a few times during the night to attend to my beautiful boy. It’s really neat, Nima was having trouble deciding why he was crying but the moment he handed our boy to me, he instantly stopped.
He knows my voice, obviously because he was in my tummy for nine months and he likes to snuggle by me. He likes when Nima holds him also of course, but I get the opportunity to do “Skin to Skin” with me which is incredibly bonding.
I waited so long to me a mommy and to have a complete family with Nima and am so grateful for my son, even when he has major dirty diapers. I enjoy every minute of it and of him. It’s also cool that he looks like me except for his daddy’s nose but I know our boy will be growing and changing every day.
Yesterday I made a little live stream video for my youtube channel talking about my love for me child and my husband. Please definitely check it out and leave your likes there. Also if you haven’t subscribed to my channel yet, please do so.
Hi everyone, long time no chat. It’s been an absolutely crazy but enjoyable nine months. My husband and I had a beautiful baby boy who is now at week and two days. He’s the most precious thing I’ve ever seen. I know many new parents say that but in this case, it’s true. HaHa. I wanted him for so long and I must confess that I was feeling hopeless at times. Luckily I had an absolute amazing team of doctors and nurses who helped me out through my pregnancy and the team was rated NUMBER 1 in Orange County and Southern California.
I couldn’t have done it without this fabulous team of doctors and my MOST AMAZING AND SUPPORTIVE HUSBAND NIMA SORAT! He stood by my side during every moment.
I don’t want to post any pictures of my son here because I posted two on my Instagram and on my Facebook when I announced his birth, so feel free to check out my cutie there. I just didn’t want to bombard my page here with photos.
I got pregnant right before COVID so unfortunately Nima couldn’t go to most of my OBGYN appointments but he got to attend the early ones plus the first ANATOMY ULTRASOUND which was the most amazing thing.And of course he was in the delivery room and hospital with me which was the most important thing. Nima has been a saint and I’m so grateful for him and our new beautiful family. And I’m excited it’s the holiday season coming up.
I DEFINITELY KNOW WHAT I’M GRATEFUL FOR! MY BABY HAS BEEN THE ONLY GREAT THING ABOUT 2020!
If you have any baby or pregnancy stories, feel free to share here in the comments. I’d love to hear your experiences!
I’ve been wanting to do this photoshoot for awhile now and yesterday I finally got to do it and am so happy with the results. My inspiration was my beautiful kimono mixed with one of Dita Von Teese’s performances, “Opium Den,” which is the costume she was wearing when I first met her. This particular performance definitely inspired me in this shoot and I felt like I was channeling a bit of Dita. I even donned her lingerie under my robe.
I love these photos and a huge thank you to my guy Nima Sorat for shooting me. I hope you all enjoy my burlesque kimono photos.

Here it is finally, my double BETTIE PAGE COLLABORATION WITH MY PINUP SISTER PEGGY STONE! I’m so glad we got to do these shoots as our first collab together. I know her and I will be doing more soon. We definitely both have the classic Bettie Page essence and aura within us. I love how even though we have different hair colors and different outfits in our photos, they all go together beautifully.
Her photos were taken by Richard Kitchen whose Instagram handle is @rwk_photography. Mine were taken by Nima/Nick Sorat whose Twitter handle is @inqtanq and Nima Sorat on Facebook. Enjoy our double beautiful and fabulous photoshoot.
Thank you Peggy for doing this with me and I simply adore you sis. xoxo
I met Peggy Stone earlier this year. Actually I think I met her at the end of last year and we immediately hit it off. First reason was we are both published pinup models and actually have a spread in Passion Pinup’s Magazine right next to each other which was definitely kismet. The other most important thing Peggy and I have in common is that Bettie Page is both our Pinup Vintage Icon! I wish I still had my picture from high school where I was dressed like Bettie for Halloween.
It’s amazing how much Peggy and I have in common, such as her man takes a lot of her model shots like my husband does for me sometimes. I’ve even given and sold her some of my Bettie memorabilia like the matching flasks which you’ll see in part 2. We are definitely Pinup sisters.
Peggy and I text almost everyday and I love our friendship. She says I’m her big sis, even though she’s not that much younger than me, haha, and she’s my baby pinup sis. I hope she comes to California soon.
For this collaboration, we decided to do a Bettie Page double shoot. Duh! Haha! Bettie Page was such a natural beauty. She didn’t just do lingerie and fetish shoots but also more “Cheesecake Pinup” shots which I show here in my cherry looks. 🍒 For my hair, I did a beautiful wet set waves and since my Bettie bangs are grown out, I found my clip on Bettie Bangs.
Bettie was such a natural beauty. She didn’t fuss with a lot of eyeliner or heavy makeup. She just wore powder, mascara, and of course red lip stick, which I recreated in my photo sets. Here are a few of my cherry cheesecake photos but stay tuned for part 2 of this to see more sexy photos of my baby sis Peggy and me! Make sure to watch out for our matching flasks!
