SATANIST CHEERLEADER | HALLOWEEN COSTUME DIY

This is a Halloween costume I’ve been wanting to shoot for a while! Dollskill makes some pretty cute dark cheerleader outfits – I decided on the witch version of course! Of course, I couldn’t go the traditional route. I had to add a little gore! Quite a few years ago I did a similar costume on Halloween using a gouged out inverted pentagram for a “satanist costume”. Hopefully, everyone reading…

CAITIE

These shots are pretty different to what I usually take. That’s because I decided it’s about time I started practising taking shots outdoors. I’m much more used to using my limited studio setup. I can take my time, don’t have to wait on other people and don’t have to worry about the light on the day. But at the end of the day, it’s a skill I really want to…

LATEX

So, I purchased my first piece of latex! I’ve only worn these beautiful beautiful gloves twice now and it’s already been a wild ride full of lessons. The first time I tried them on I tugged too harshly at the latex and permanently damaged them (yay). Then I convinced myself that I suck and should not be allowed to have nice latex ever. But after gently placing them in a drawer…

ORBS & SHADOWS | GHOST PHOTOGRAPHY

    Recently I revisited The Russel Hotel, a Victorian era hotel – still running – that is known for it’s haunted halls. I was not able to bring my photography camera, but I still wanted to take a couple shots for Instagram. I loved the way these couple shots captured the eerieness and interest of the room we slept in. If you look close enough you might be able…

WITCHES WEAR LATEX

Witches wear black. Witches wear latex. Witches wear latex hoods and cloaks, and others don’t wear cloaks, and some wear none of this at all. You’ve probably heard the amalgamation “On Wednesday’s we wear BLACK” a mashup of the popular Mean Girl’s quote and the commands of the supreme witch in American Horror Story: Coven. Maybe this is one of the reasons why when I looked at these photos I didn’t…

HOW I SHOT MY BACKLIT SELF-PORTRAIT | PHOTOGRAPHY TUTORIAL

When it comes to photography, I’m absolutely and unconditionally an amateur. But isn’t that the funnest part of the whole process? It seems like every time I pick up a camera there’s always something magical to try out for the first time and something new to learn from the each experience. In each of my photographs I may take on a persona of oversaturated edginess, but behind the camera I…

SUSPIRIA | FETISH PHOTOGRAPHY & MANIFESTATIONS OF THE FINAL GIRL

   When Billy Loomis asks “What’s your favourite scary movie?” at the beginning of Scream, it begs the question isn’t life the scariest movie at all? After taking this set of photographs based around the aesthetic of the renowned Italian horror movie Suspiria, it got me thinking about horror movies and the final girls who reign supreme. I began to ask the question: who would you be if you were…

FREQUENT HAUNTS | ASK A WITCH, SUSPIRIA MAGAZINE, AND MORE

It’s been a little while since I’ve written a content post on this blog – these days I’m more into feeding my photography habit – but that doesn’t mean I haven’t been reading a lot of, well, everything. Delving deep into witchcraft, sneaking in some Abraham Hick’s while walking home from work, and forever checking in to my favourite alternative fashion blogs. Haute Macabre – an oldie but a goodie.…

SISTERS OF DEATH | OOTD

It’s been so cold here that I’ve been living in oversize long sleeve t-shirts and sweaters like the above. The slightly cheesy Gothic printed ones are especially a favourite. Do you remember Lip Service? This is by their old brand House of Widow, which was bought by Dollskill when they wen’t under a couple years ago. I’m so glad! They have some really great modern Goth wear. Along with these…

Peruse the video and let me know what you think! Are you a fan of fetish fashion?

How to Make a Taxidermy Bat Display | YouTube Video

I made another video! Recently I received a taxidermy bat. But the poor little guy didn’t have a home. I decided to put a little tutorial together on how to create a simple taxidermy bat shadow box display. This can be used for anything from taxidermy hides to displaying insects. Plus, the process of making a taxidermy bat display is super easy! It added just the right touch to a…

WINTER SOLSTICE | OUTFIT OF THE DAY

Lately, I’ve amassed a huge collection of harnesses and vegan leather belts. My fetish obsession is far from over! I finally got to put some of them to use when taking these pictures with my lovely red headed friend Sary. A major inspiration for these looks is the brand Deandri. In case you’re unaware, their aesthetic is very much Wednesday Addams with a bondage twist. They have a whole range…
