The Wish Shop

Let’s go a little curio, just in time for Halloween! If you have read the previous articles, Karou’s wishbone and Chimaera’s Hamsas, you will have learnt about Karou, Laini Taylor’s character from Daughter of Smoke and Bone. Karou happens to have the Chimaera Brimstone for a father figure. This is the last set of pictures…

Chimaera’s Hamsas

This outfit is heavily inspired by Karou from Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor, like my previous article, Karou’s wishbone. This is part 2 of the Waterloo photoshoot with Marco Vinagre. Remember when I wrote that she had other powers than using wishes? Karou has eyes on her palms, but they aren’t tattoos though,…

Karou’s Wishbone

I’ve been dreaming quite a while of doing a photo session inspired by Karou, the main character of Daughter of Smoke and Bone, and my dream has come true thanks to Marco Vinagre. Thanks to Kat Von D’s Satellite Blue eyebrow pomade, my eyebrows and my hair (Manic Panic’s Bad Boy Blue) finally match, making…

Metamorphosis

The previous articles focused quite a lot on some concepts like Dreams and Chaos, loosely connected to insects like moths and butterflies. This one will be all about metamorphosis… Are you ready for the transformation? The other winged insect I was wearing in the Canary Wharf photo session with Maciej is the dragonfly. This skirt…

Chaos Theory

You might have heard of the butterfly effect, maybe from the movie, which I must admit here I didn’t like that much. It’s an aspect of chaos theory, that takes the metaphorical example of how a tornado might have been influenced much earlier by a butterfly flapping its wings somewhere else. It shows that from slightly…

The Muse of Dreams

Recently, my friend Maciej Żywioł came to London and we decided quite spontaneously to go take pictures in Canary Wharf. All pictures in this article have been taken by Maciej. I know the setting below is quite reminiscent of Hamlet’s character Ophelia, my “nicknamesake” if I might say so. However, Ophelia is asleep here, she’s dreaming next…

Dragons of London

We (Olaf from capturingemotions and me) started this photo session at the same location than the “Those Red Lips”, a London ruined Church Garden. If you have read the previous article, you know I wrote a lot about Dracula. Well, Dracula comes from the word Dracul, which means Dragon. You might know the Hogwarts motto…

Those Red Lips

One summer evening in London, a ruined church and its garden hosted a new photo session with Olaf Szmidt from Capturing Emotions. Since I’m supposed to be a time traveling vampire, a reference to Dracula is only fitting, and this churchyard-like location might have been on the vampire’s list when he was living in London….

Military Fashion Show

This outfit was slightly more appropriate for a hot summer weekend in Paris than the previous Steampunk one, but both were quite playful and a take on some common goth styles. This one is more military inspired, and I used to wear similar things when I partied in Germany or France, probably dancing to the…

Kraken in the Seine

Alexandre Mazel, the photographer, brought me to a garden island on the Seine in the Paris suburbs. It was the first day of July in Paris, and blazing hot. I wished I could swim in the nearby Seine, but instead I went to a swimming pool next to the Père Lachaise cemetery after this photo…
