Location Shoot Ideas

Okay haha maybe not! A quick THANK YOU for all the amazing submissions I’ve been getting for the Exquisite Corpses competition, sorry about the lack of updates as real life has been getting in the way – come NEXT Monday there will be another prize update!

When considering a photoshoot as in real estate it’s always a question of location, location, location here’s a list and guide to some cool places to take a photo

Abandoned houses and Ghost Towns

Historians were Baffeled by their choice of Window treatments

Historians were Baffeled by their choice of Window treatments

Nothing gives people the hard core willies quite like places of Human occupation without the human in it. Towns become empty for a number of reasons like economic upheaval and mass outbreaks of disease, there are whole towns around the USA, Australia and Europe that the residents simply walked away from. Houses full of furniture, stores, business places, churches, farms left to the abrasive hand of the elements and nature to gently erase away. Sometimes this occurs when the farm land is too poor, when gold or mineral rushes dry out or when sheer isolation cut people from the outside world, they either leave or die there with no one left behind to manage it. When venturing into this type of Urbex situation always do so safely, watch for nails in the ground, don’t go into places that look like a hard cough could topple them over and beware of nature (Bears, Dogs, Dingoes, Ghosts and The Yetti) because it’s taken permanent residence there. If there has been a chemical/toxic/nuclear spill or meltdown in the area do not go there – unless your with a guide and you happen to be in Chernobyl

These places are fantastic locations for photo shoots because they have a fantastic, otherworldly ambiance just be careful when entering them.

Churches

Show us your Bones

Show us your Bones

Always ask the caretakers of any religious space if it’s okay to take photographs and always be respectful of the place (Nun’s aren’t down with BDSM themed shoots in their Abbey – as Z Grade horror films from the 70s had tried to tell me otherwise) you are using and as a rule, stay away from graveyards and necropolises. It is believed that sometimes ghosts can appear in photographs as blurs, bubbles and lights and nothing can ruin a decent shot like a photobombing dead guy. The photo above is of aspects of the Sedlec Ossuary in the Czech Republic, back in plague days they had a lot of dead people and not much else to do and one mad achitect put one and one together to decorate this church with about a zillion bones, skulls, ribs, pelvises and every little piece of the human frame is used to create massive chandeliers and as ornament throughout the building in a horrifying yet elegant pattern in tribute death and eternity. This guy was a mad genius and unfortunatly bleached chicken bones sellotaped to the ceiling is not going to cut it so if your ever in this part of Europe do check it out.

Grand Gardens with a Folly

Ooohh!

Ooohh!

A Folly is a small, faked piece of architecture placed in a large garden in tribute to a different time to evoke a sense of wonder and surprise. They were placed in areas where one would feel like they are stumbling on a Roman ruin or a tumbled down Gothic Cathedral – there are many such gardens around the world that are open to the public and make for elegant locations for gothic, classic and even sweet themed shoots.

Micro Post: Quiteland Order

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on May 21, 2010 by dollpart

I put in an order for a new JSK and Bonnet from Rose Melody through Quiteland and I eagerly await it! It’s been almost a year since I’ve been able to afford a new dress so I’m quite happy this is coming my way.

Of course I will review the dress and service, overall I’ve heard great things about Rose Melody as a brand.

*fingers crossed*

Metamorphose Perfume Bottle

Rose Parfum it ain’t but damn if I dont want this in black like burning.

Smells like Teen Spirit

Metamorphose - Feeding my obsession with bottles

I really do have a thing for bottles and any container that holds liquids. When I’m old and senile I’ll be one of those crazy bats who fills her whole house with jam jars and is found three months later partially mumified/pickled under a mountain of collectible nutella jars. I personally don’t mind the blue in this as the pink is just as neon and I do love the strands of broken pearls scattered around the bottles too.

Bottles!

I wonder how much I can sell my blood for this on the black market?

This is up for reservations soon on Metamorphose’s website

Loliweekend Log and Stats!

Huzzah! 80 000 hits!

Frills and an urge to Kill

Alice is Dead. Long Live Lolita

That’s just a very rough drawing I did in a book and hopefully will paint as a proper oil painting miniature. I like the visual of lolitas doing active things even if those things are violent as opposed to the passive, sit there and look pretty thing seen in most lolita drawings/art.

The first day of the Loli weekend was the big day meet there was a good turn out. Filming was a little different but we’re all very much used to being photographed and looked at especially when in a group. We met at King George Square where we were all interviewed as a group about people’s reactions to seeing us as a group, there was a parasol fight (to the death, Star Trek battle theme plays in background) purikura and drinks at Fat Louies to celebrate Suze’s birthday.

ROCK THE HELL OUT!

FOR THOSE ABOUT TO ROCK. WE SALUTE YOU.

I’m the one in the middle looking like a true chumpette – Outfit by Bodyline, Metamorphose, Enchantress and whatever I could find rolling around my bedroom floor.

Havin’ it Large! Brisbane Loli Weekend.

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on April 30, 2010 by dollpart

Tomorrow is the start of the Brisbane Loli weekend (and uh Labor Day weekend to ease the come down of course XD) which is being held to film some of our shenanigans for our good friend Goldie’s documentation of Lolita subculture.

Tomorrow it’s our traditional watering hole of Fat Louis – happy hour drinks and Karaoke. Not only is Fat Louis cheap, it’s also a rather dingy and awful little bar, the awfulness is part of its charm really and there are worse pubs and clubs out there. In between the shots of Chamord and ribaldry I’ll blog bits and pieces and try and have photographs too!

Drink, Smoke and be Lolita

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on April 29, 2010 by dollpart

There is the pervasive myth on what the Western lolita “should” be – as in a code of behavior – which is prim, proper and passive. That Lolitas shouldn’t drink, smoke, swear or be jerks. I personally think that’s a load of bullshit because at the end of the day people in the lolita subculture are human. It’s a good thing usually to keep the profanities down to a minimum, keep your liver in tact so someone else could one day use it/eat it to gain your power and keep the tobacco smoke out of your expensive garments but fucked if I could be bothered really.

On Drinking
Chambord Liquer is pretty much the most lolita of all boozes, it’s even got a crown on it! Chambord is made from raspberries, blackberries, Madagascar vanilla, Moroccan citrus peel, honey and cognac and tastes great in cocktails. My personal favorite being lime juice, Chambord and lemonade and if you’re feeling extra blasphemous try the Blood of Christ cocktail, Chambord, Triple Sec, Grand Mariner and grenadine.

Chambord

The Loliest of all Boozes

For the beer drinkers, branch out and try some local or international brews, for the homebrewers out there I put to you a challenge – create Lolibrau – a beer for lolitas, by lolitas and now with even MOAR BOWS.

On Smoking
The latest trend right now is eCigarettes – battery powered cigarettes that vaporize nicotine into vapour with no tar or smoke – you can smoke those bad boys anywhere and come in a variety of flavours. For the tradiontional smoker who wants to colour co-ordinate I’d recommend Fantasias, Sobranie Coctails and Black Russians.

Fantasias

Fantasias

Sobraine is one of the oldest cigarette companies in the world and also make a rainbow coloured ciagrette known as Sobraine Coctails as well as the distinctive Black Russians which have a black paper covering.

Sorbaine Cocktails

Sorbaine Cocktails - and you thought AP was way pastel

I like the occasional Clove for the taste, Black Devils too when Sobranies are not in the budget but for the most part I stick to Marlboro Reds and Benson and Hedges Classic.

We all have vices, at the very least you can get your vices to match your hand bag and never apologize for having flair or taste ladies.
