Day #362 part C
When I told Lucky that I couldn’t figure out why no one has bought this beautiful headdress yet, he promptly clarified to me that it is not as nice as my others. It looks like an old vintage grandma hat, all flowery. My other stuff is apparently more magnificent. The wonderful thing about such blunt honesty is that when someone of this verbal caliber compliments you, you know they mean it. No sugar coating from Lucky, he tells it like it is.
The days of this project are nearly over, this is in fact the last Tuesday we shall shoot for this creative venture. We are BAFFLED by what to do for our final shoot. We have set the stakes pretty fricken high, you know??????? FUUUUUCK. And ideas? Someone have a unicorn I can ride?

Day #362 part A
It seems each of these epic shoot days has a vibe, today’s was decadence!! One of my favorite themes, I fancy myself an elegant enchantress of most seductive powers, galavanting about town on ponies and man drawn carriages That’s right, man drawn carriages, you did not read wrong. I would have horse bits in their sumptuous mouths and reigns upon their bulging muscular, oil lathered, barren shoulders. Giddy-up!
These first shots are showcasing this absolutely decadent outfit by Royal Black Couture Corsetry (https://www.facebook.com/pages/Royal-Black-Couture-Corsetry and http://royalblack.at/). I have lusted longingly for their beautiful wares. Although I will doubtful ever be able to afford these creations, I was delighted that the beautiful Ophelia Overdose (http://ophelia-overdose.blogspot.com/) had brought along her golden robot themed outfit and was generous enough to let me wear it. Truly a work of art, every detail was attended to, the seams perfect, the quality magnificent, and the fit superb. Anyone who has worn a fine corset knows the difference, well made ones can be cinched super tight without discomfort. Swooooon… I am more in love with Barbara Pesendorfer’s custom creations than ever before!

Day #360 part C
And finally, and most excitedly, I painted myself in gold and got to wear this beautiful hat that I had made for a photo shoot recently. The shoot was cancelled and the spectacular hat was left neglected:(  But alas, Lucky took these fricken rad shots, which remind me of the laughing Buddah!! hhhaahaaaaaa!!!

Day #360 part B
Additionally, I was distracted by this huge tea pot. Due to it’s unfortunate aesthetic imperfections, it was on SALE! Yep!! The day started with Darth Raper, and ended with tea pot bukaki. Never was Alice defiled in such a way before, happily humping inanimate objects she found herself covered in orgasmic delights. I think I miss my lovers… I am really getting carried away:)

Day #245
I made this delectable Minnie Mouse hat, and although I know that Minnie Mouse has been a common theme throughout the months of this photo project, I really love this one and could not help but desire modeling it:)  It is made with Haunted Mansion Wallpaper fabric and embellished with skulls, leaf skeletons, and rhinestoned spiders. Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens, Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens, Bright copper kettles and warm woolen mittens, Brown paper packages tied up with strings….. These are a few of my favorite things… these are a few of my favorite things. You can see a closer up image here on my site:) http://www.etsy.com/listing/122724456/haunte-me-please-haunted-mansion-minnie

Day #310
This is another custom piece I did for a client which made me step way outside of my box, creatively speaking.  He said no feathers, and all black. Well, I am definitely a woman largely dependent on the vibrancy of the rainbow, so it took me a long time to figure out what I wanted to do for this!  Finally, when he was impatiently inquiring as to where the pieces were, I dreamed them up.  I thank the surreal nature of the great abyss of my mind and the universe for delivering this inspiration into my brains while I peacefully slumbered!  These were shot here at Pillar Box Studios during the lunch break of the construction workers who were putting electrical pipes on my ceiling yesterday, about an hour before I went to the post office and shipped these out.

Day 229
I was commissioned yesterday to create a red feather and peacock inspired gypsy headdress for a girl who lives here in LA.  The turnaround time…. 24 hours!  I ran to the feather store this morning and got all my supplies and have dutifully been working on this all night :)  I am so pleased with how this piece came out~!  I was a bit worried about the color combo, feeling red and peacock were an odd match at first.  But it always delights me when I get to make something outside of my box, and this piece was a wonderful change of pace from the endless unicorn hats I have been working on :-)  Woot woot!more creations can be seen at BubblesAndFrown.etsy.com

Day #211
It seemed only appropriate to shoot my rainbow hat on the rainbow wall.  Admittedly I was pretty tired when we shot these, but it was still super fun to get all bright and colorful and make quirky faces at Lucky. - Sylva

Day 188
For someone who is not a photographer, I sure have spent a lot of money on photography equipment.  For my foreboding birthday I gifted myself a ring flash from the Alien Bees store (http://www.paulcbuff.com/).  They are fairly affordable compared to other brands and I LOVE the light they emit.  It’s super glow-y and creates this cool soft shadow around the outside of the person.  Lucky also loves them (duh) cause they suit his bright colorful photography style.  So I went ahead and got one to experiment with!  It came in the mail about a week ago BUT I was lacking a tripod.  The previous one I ordered broke the first time I tried to use it. It is a good thing I was holding the camera when it unfastened cause that would have been an expensive mistake!!  Sigh.  Sighsighsigh.Dear Sylva, this is a very boring story.  Dear internet people…. I am sorry. The grand finale of my story is that I decided to do some self portraits with my handy dandy ring flash and expensive ass tripod!  Woot woot!  I knew exactly which hat I wanted to wear (https://www.etsy.com/listing/105060949/flower-princess-earthy-colorful-floral), and I also wanted to use this super rad powder that I have.   I bought it at the Indian grocery store, it is normally used in ceremonies.  The color is insane, vibrant, intense, magical.  <3I am so happy with how these images came out!  I think tomorrow I shall shoot my crazy doll hat (https://www.etsy.com/listing/102993815/giant-headdress-with-porcelain-doll) with the crazy blue powder I have!!  
So yesterdays “clothed” shot had bottom boobies, and today’s ”nude” shot has barely and boobies.  Sorry… this was just my favorite image from the nude series.  It’s “implied”.  Huh.
