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…

Her Dark Materials

I was lucky enough to see the Northern Lights back in December 2017, in Iceland.   View this post on Instagram At last! The Northern Lights… His Dark Materials anyone? A post shared by Céline Boudier (@lyraophelia) on Dec 6, 2017 at 1:59pm PST I had been dreaming of seeing them for quite a while…

A Good Slytherin

After finding a magical key to Wonderland, it’s time to get some magic done.  If the snake by Alchemy Gothic gives any clue, I’m part Slytherin. I’m part Ravenclaw as well, which might be why my hair is turquoise and not emerald. My raven dress might feature in another photoshoot though… As a guest star, an old skull…

Key to Wonderland

Am I wearing the key to Wonderland? This blue and brass necklace comes from the shop of a gorgeous Steampunk restaurant in Poland called Wodna Wieża. This had been a dream place for quite a while, but I never thought I would actually manage to eat there. It’s in a small town, Pszczyna, about an hour…
