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…

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…

Get GOTHED UP With Me! | Ghoul Girl Makeup

 Holy shit! The last month has been crazy for my life. I finished up my last ever class for University, stepped down at my job, went on holiday! All Winter long I’ve been feeling like my life has been heading towards a death and rebirth phase that I just can’t shake. Everything is ending. But as I’ve been reading in a lot of Pagan books and websites, after everything…

Bisque Doll

The title bisque refers to a bisque doll. For this set of photos I took a lot of inspiration from dolls and Victorian children. I love old broken antique bisque dolls. They have a weird fragile beauty to them that I feel is so haunting. What do you think? Do you see a bisque doll when you look at these pictures? My lovely friend Sary is wear a Unif dress…

Walking the Halls Alone at Night

The blue tone, the heavy red velvet curtains and an otherworldly nature of these photographs made me think of someone walking down long halls alone at night in a Victorian ghost story. It’s chilling, raising bumps along your arms like pin-pricks but it’s also wonderfully curious. You never know what you’ll run into in the dark. Whether that is a ghost whispering from flowing curtains who licks at their hem,…

GRAV3YARD GIRL

It’s no surprise that I’m a huge fan of the YouTuber Grav3yard Girl. I picked up this shirt over a year ago (shipping took literally nine months). I was genuinely shocked when it actually arrived. While I was happy to see it in all it’s XL glory, it has been tucked away in my closet for a while. Until now. I decided it was about time to do something about…
