This Halloween I find myself browsing the Halloween section of Netflix and waiting for something new! Don’t get me wrong, Netflix Australia does have some good horror movies on it. But I’ve seen them all over and over! I can’t be the only one who would prefer it if they bought the rights to something that isn’t a low budget Indian horror movie! (Why are there so many of these…

Fall is here? Well, kind of. I took these pictures in homage to the fall weather that has been pasted all over the place at the moment. But in reality, here in Australia we are finally coming out of Winter and starting to appreciate the beautiful Spring weather. If you live in the Northern Hemisphere you might think that it would be disappointing to miss out on an Autumnal Halloween.…

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…

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…

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…

    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 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…

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…

   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…

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.…

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…
