Day #260
My lovely friend Daniellow left this deliciously deconstructed amarillo eyelet cotton fabric at my house recently.  I have all but adopted it into my life.  Today I sent him the topless images from this shoot and proclaimed innocently that he should send some dirty ones back to me :-)  He threatens that he will. - Sylva

Day #257
I have avoided wearing skinny jeans my entire life.  Yes, you heard right, the fad has washed over me and never wet me down. I have stayed dry despite the storm of tight fitting stretch denim pants that litters the front windows of stores across America.  Until… one day… drum roll please…. My friend Fargo gave me some skinny jeans for my birthday.  I looked at them, in fear, imagining my child bearing hips and plump behind muffining over the top in a dramatic display of 38” hipped vulgarity.  And I put them in the closet.  And I waited.  And I waited.  And my laundry pile got higher, and my choice of pants grew slimmer.  Then one day, there they were…. the last pair of pants standing. The one remaining pair in the closet, beckoning me to put my fears behind me and squash, ever so tenderly, the squishy flesh of my bum into their army green 30% spandex leg holes.  And so I did.  And now I love them.  Perhaps the addition of a rainbow belt and $20 rainbow Target boots is partially to blame.  There ain’t no going back now.  Skinny jeans, here I come! - Sylva
I very enthusiastically approve this message:) - Lucky

I have been framing some bones to put up in one of the new sets here at Pillar Box Studios and they were conveniently sitting on the floor today when Lucky came over.  I really just wanted to become one with my art……. - Sylva

Day #252
A couple weeks after my birthday a surprise package arrived in the mail.  I was not expecting anything  but I rode my bike down to the post office and picked it up.  Much to my surprise, inside I found this beautiful corset and a pair of swirly beaded Indian shoes!  They were sent to me by Rant (http://www.modelmayhem.com/2271004), a most lovely model who I have had the pleasure of meeting briefly when she flew down to LA a while back.  We actually traded hats, she gave me these jeweled antlers she made and I gave her something that matched her hairstyle back them.  So sweet, beautiful, quirky, and creative.  I kinda hoped to get some nice shots of the corset but I loved these wacky face shots so much I decided to share them with you instead.  Sometime soon I will do a shoot properly showcasing the wonderful corset.  Until then, my clown sidekick will show you her tattas. - Sylva

Day #249
I remember years ago, I knew a lot of artsy young ladies and gentleman of similar ages to myself.  We all aspired to do something with our art, some of us wanting to make it into careers and some people too punk rock to want to make money off of their hearts one true love.  One such friend is the beautiful Roxy Contin, who knew all along she wanted to be a designer.  I met her when she was making her first run of sell-able goods.  Always incredibly motivated and inspired, Roxy has always been determined enough to realize her dreams, and she has an amazing way of making shit happen.  This doesn’t make it easier, during the years we have known each other we have watched each other struggle, flourish, and keep on fucking trying no matter what.  She came by the studio last week and gave me this super cute, cozy, comfy, bad as onesie.  I LOVE IT!!!  It’s soft and cottony, has a rad screen print on it, and a stylish little hood.  So wonderful!!!  We decided to shoot it under the fire chandelier, which Tony (https://www.facebook.com/FireGardenEvents) generously installed recently.  I am so in love with my new chandelier, I love sitting under it on my round bed and chatting with friends.  It’s just about the most decadent little spot I could have ever imagined having in my home!  AAAAnnnd lastly, my lovely friend Alexandra Matthews (http://www.alexandra-mathews.com/) made me this super cute bone necklace, and I was delighted to get to shoot in it too!!!  She wore it over here for dinner one night and I complimented, it, always a sucker for bones, and my favorite style of necklace is a bib style  like the one she created.  When I awoke a couple days later I realized she left it on my nightstand for me as a gift.  I almost cried.  It was a rough day and I was so overwhelmed with confused gratitude.  I love it!!! My friends are fucking amazing. - Sylva

Day #201
I think that I am impaired and blessed with both an inner 5 year old and an inner 40  year old.  I sometimes feel I am still a child, when I compare myself to my peers. I feel I have a lot of humor about life, a lot of excitement, I like to embrace frivolous things!  Then other times I feel like I am so much older than my peers, in terms of goals and dedication to my craft of hats (http://bubblesandfrown.etsy.com) and my studio (http://pillarboxstudios.com).  This time, when we shot, my inner 5 year old came out.  Lucky was standing there saying “laugh!” and I was swinging my hair about and being silly and when I look at these shots I feel like I am not a grown up at all, but a personification of my favorite cartoon character.  So as I sit here now, looking at these photos while simultaneously redecorating my photo studio, I can’t help but reflect on the odd duality of my personality……..  - Sylva

White on white… every photographer’s favorite thing to shoot;) - Lucky
P-P-P-Ponyyyyy!!!  That’s right…. every little girl’s fantasy has been actualized…. I wanted a damned pony, and I got one.  For years I have pined for a carousel horse, looking them up online constantly and feeling oh so doomed that they cost thousands of dollars.  Then one day I came across this unpainted carousel horse, made by a company in Florida, out of plastic, with a mold.   Pony actually came in the mail many weeks ago but I have been so busy I haven’t gotten to shoot with her.  I am very much looking forward to painting her….  Roustan suggested doing the body to look like carved wood which I thought was genius!  I think I will do that, and do the saddle and floral designs in metallic gold, copper, and silver.  That way Pony will be very versatile~~.  That’s what you want in a pony, after all.

And speaking of Roustan… I have to re-beg for you to all supposrt our kickstarter, but please pretty please with sugar on top, can you support our kickstarter?

Day #199
I am so so tired.  It has been a long day.  The studio was rented all day, following which I did a shoot for Mexico Maxim (?!?!?!?!!?), following which Lucky came by for some creative ventures!  Oh… and I dyed my hair!  Ta da!!!  I am off to bed, I have another epically long day tomorrow.  Sleep tight, great galactic inter webs!  Love and love and love and kittens. - Sylva
Ahhhh… it felt good to shoot something for fun:) Between Sylva filling hat orders for burners and me going to Burning Man we haven’t been able to get together for quite a while now so it was extra fun when I showed up and she had done some remodeling AND bought a ring flash. Yay me! - Lucky
