Not Dead Yet...

Journal Entry: Sun Oct 7, 2012, 12:36 AM


Okay...  So it has been a LITTLE longer than I initially anticipated between posts on here.  I have successfully moved house but was without internet for a lot longer than anticipated and have since had a barrage of computer and net issues.   I'm slowly working on getting a new computer and with any luck, that will solve a lot of the issues I'm having with my internet.

I've also had some family and work issues and am currently looking for a new job and been busy with sewing commissions - one of which you will get to see the end result of this coming Monday!!!  I've had a couple of projects that have fallen through or failed to take off as expected so sadly, no photos just yet. I'm, also on a bit of a personal wellness kick at the moment so hopefully when I'm next in front of a camera, I'll be a lot stronger and fitter!

For those of you on Aus-Art I am stepping down from the position of group owner and will be shortly handing over the reigns to a fantastic deviant.

Thank you to everyone who has watched me; faved pictures and commented on my profile or any picture - I had 500+  activity messages and nearly 100 journals as well as everything else and the 10,000+ deviations - I'm sorry if I haven't replied to anyone or commented on any of the wonderful artworks in my feed but I had no choice but to do a mass purge of everything and start fresh.

Just an FYI - I'm moving house this weekend and will be without internet for an unknown period of time.  I'll have access to my emails from work but I won't have access to DA or Facebook or any of those sites.  If anyone needs to get in touch with me, please use the email link above and I'll see you when I'm back online!!

       YOURSYOURS
I bend to your will
subjugate my need for yours,
and I will continue to be in awe
of this infatuation,
this complete abandonment
of any thoughts other than of you,
for you hold the power
the key
the essential element
that pulls me together
to be the person
you have vowed to love
forever.

First DD!

Journal Entry: Wed Dec 14, 2011, 2:06 AM


So after the best part of five years of using this account on DeviantArt, I have finally gotten my first Daily Deviation!!!

Herbert von Krolock 03 by Nsaia

Thanks to FrockTarts for featuring it and thank you to all those who have :+fav: and :+devwatch: the deviation and me!  I hope I can provide more enjoyable art in the future!

*EDIT:  Thanks to everyone for all the faves and comments I've received overnight - I came home from work to nearly 500 activity messages and nearly 50 comments, notes etc!  I haven't had time to reply to everyone yet but I'm working on it. :kiss:


Also... For anyone who hasn't noticed yet - I have added a Tumblr and Facebook Fan Page to the various places you can find my art - they're a bit bare at the moment but they'll be brought up to speed soon!

9 things you may or may not know about me

Journal Entry: Sun Nov 27, 2011, 10:47 PM


Okay... So In lieu of new art, I thought I'd post a new journal with my shiny new leopard skin from the fantastically creative aka-photography-uk - check them out if you haven't already! - topic of journal? 9 random facts that you may or may not have known about me.

1. I'm 5'10" - Yes, I am actually that tall! Almost every shoot I've walked into has resulted in me being greeted with "Wow, you really are tall!"
2. I'm allergic to MAC make up - MUAs take note!
3. I'm a fan of a ridiculously wide variety of music - if you pick up my iPod, you're equally likely to hear German music theatre as you are Welsh punk, kick ass American rock, 80s retro or even bubblegum pop.
4. I've modelled in 3 different countries and will be adding to that list come 2012!
5. My exercise routine is currently three, one-hour boot camp sessions a week, soon to be joined by 1hr of personal training, and two or more yoga sessions.
6. Favourite colours are black, purple, blue and red. (And leopard print!)
7. I've used the same hair dresser for the last decade.
8. I'm slightly accident prone - e.g. I managed to break the same foot three times in 12mths without doing anything to it.
9. Come 2012, you will be seeing more costumes and custom clothes - might even throw open commissions...

To all the KMFDM fans out there

Journal Entry: Wed Oct 19, 2011, 6:47 PM



I know I've got at least a couple of KMFDM fans out there so I'm putting this question out to all of you -

A couple of years ago the band released limited edition (250pcs per release) 7in vinyl records of their albums - I did start buying these but unfortunately due to being overseas and having no spare money, I didn't end up with the entire collection. Now, I'm going to be moving house in a few months and as part of the inevitable personal possession downsize, I'm looking at selling the vinyls I do have.

So the question is there - would anyone be interested in buying these from me?  They're all mint condition - never been played, never been touched - heck, a lot of them have never even had the shipping packaging opened let alone anything more! I'm probably going to end up having to go to the inevitable sales point that is eBay but I thought I'd open this up to all you folks here on DA first.   If you're interested send me a note/reply here! :D

Ask Me Anything

Journal Entry: Fri Sep 30, 2011, 6:26 PM



Update:  Just wanted to say a mass THANKS! for all the :+fav: and :+devwatch: that I have received recently!  Not sure why the sudden surge (no, I checked, no DDs sadly) but thanks to everyone - thanks to the spam filter and a lack of time, I can't thank everyone individually, so here's one big public thanks to all!

Still answering questions that anyone may have too!

***

Given as modelling work is a little quiet right now, I thought I'd give all my watchers a chance to ask me a question.

As me anything you like and I will give you an answer.  

Anything overly explicit/sexual/inappropriate will be ignored so chose your question wisely!

Hit me with your questions, people! :)

A thought to muse over...

Journal Entry: Tue Jul 19, 2011, 4:13 AM



This train of thought was spurred on by a conversation I've  had with a couple of people here on DA.

Recently, I've been chatting to a couple of people (and I know there's a lot of people here on DA think similarly) about how the nude art on DA needs some serious policing and overhauling.

Now, I am NOT trying to spark a debate about what is art etc but what has come of this discussion is another discussion regarding DA's policy about not allowing collections of body parts.  I for one think this is a rather good policy - Whilst I see no harm in a collection of legs or hands etc, I don't really see the need for collections of  T&A and genitals.

So needless to say, in the face of this "No Body Parts Collections" rule, I was rather surprised (and a little amused) to find a permission request from a group to add my art to their collections.  The group?  A club dedicated to A-cup women!  So here is the question - what is that if not a group dedicated to the collection of breasts?  How is
that allowed to remain yet anyone who made a personal collection and called it "Small Breasts" would get in trouble for it?  

I have nothing against the club itself and I actually granted permission for my deviation to be added to the collection, just thought it was an interesting point and wondered about others' thoughts on the subject!

(The amusement value in case anyone was wondering was the fact that I'm a C-cup and the vast majority of comments on the group's page were "I'm not an A-cup")

A new chapter in an old life

Journal Entry: Sun Jan 2, 2011, 9:01 PM



So I'm sure a few of you have been wondering where I've been this year!  In addition to a roller-coaster ride of physical and emotional issues that I've had to confront this year, I've also been trying to do something that I love.  I've had a new job this year, working 50hr weeks and I realised that, lovely as the company is and great as the people are to work with, I can't face sitting at a desk sending emails and making phone calls for the next five decades or so.  I've always said I wasn't cut out for a "normal" day job and now that I've had a couple, I'm absolutely certain I'm not.  So, I started thinking about what I could do and it was suggested that perhaps I should look to costuming.  As a lot of you know, I've made costumes and clothes on and off for the last couple of years for myself and others and it was suggested that maybe, just maybe I should try and look to doing it more seriously.

So this year, on the weekends, I have been learning to sew and in the year just gone, I have gone from barely being able to sew a basic top to sewing ball gowns and bustiers!  And what was all this in aid of?  Well applying for NIDA of course!  For those who don't know, NIDA is THE place to study for all up-and-coming actors and it also has courses in music theatre, design, prop and costume production etc.  Unfortunately for me, they only take FOUR, yes FOUR, people into the costume production course every year!

At the start of this year, I roped in three volunteers to model my creations, having in mind a specific outfit for each of them.  This then jumped to four when I decided on one for myself and five when I met a lovely model who loved costumes.

Before I say a bit about each of the costumes, I just want to say a HUGE thanks to all four models for helping me out - three of the four have been a part of this project since the start of 2010 and have given up their free time repeatedly to come over and be asked to do all sorts of odd things like strip off and stand on one leg while I run tape measures over them and note down every conceivable measurement - even around their elbows!  They have been poked and prodded and pulled every which way and not complained once.  They came to me when they were sick, when they had been working since five or studying for exams.  They have put up with me tearing my hair out and freaking out and texting them at all hours but they all stuck with me and kept encouraging me every step of the way and I want to say a huge thank you to all of them.  I also want to say a huge thanks to Laura for stepping in LITERALLY last minute.  I had previously asked the favour of another model through a friend, this model fitted the role very nicely and loved costumes, however, they decided to drop out of the shoot at 5pm the night before and I was left with a custom made dress that I had spent ten hours finishing by hand and no one able to fit it!  My model had been a willowy 5'11", size six, 32A and the dress was made to fit but thanks to a last minute phone call by the photographer Abe, the lovely Laura postponed a drive down the coast on the off chance that she could be my princess in shining satin - and as luck would have it, the dress fitted!  I also want to say another huge thanks to the photographer, Abe Bastoli - www.modelmayhem.com/abebastoli… who was handed to me on a silver platter by one of my models and who is one of the most understanding and amazing photographers I have ever come across.  He was kind enough to give me and my crew of models his undivided attention a mere FOUR DAYS before I needed the photos and then give me back a great collection of photos. He found me a great model last minute and gave me a heap of advice on how to get through the the whole thing and I hope that I get another chance to work with him.

EDIT:  Finally got ALL the photos posted from this exercise.  Thanks for sticking with me as I've posted them over the last week and thank you for all the positive feedback I've had so far.

Costume 1 - Juliet from Shakespeare's "Romeo & Juliet"
The Model:  Miztress
The Costume:  Juliet's ball gown from the Capulet's masquerade ball.
The Concept:  This dress was an original design by myself as opposed to being a recreation of an existing costume.  For me, the image of Julie as the angelic, innocent young girl never sits quite right.  She is often dressed in pale pinks and whites yet eloping with a boy she has just met who HAPPENS to be the son of her family's enemy, faking her own death to be with him and then actually killing herself are not the acts of an innocent young girl and I wanted the colour palette to reflect that.  One of my favourite musicals is a Viennese production of Romeo & Juliet where they clearly define each family and their associates with two colours - the Capulets and co are in reds and pinks and oranges and the Montagues are in blues and purples and greens - and I love the idea of having such a clear distinction.  For me, I wanted a more modern look and colour scheme -  placing Juliet in black and purple. Black because a girl rebelling against her family should stand out in the crowd and purple because it is a combination of red and blue, that is, a combination of Capulet and Montague.

Costume 2 - Harley Quinn from DC's Batman series
The Model: Niansa
The Costume: Harley's traditional black and red court-jester-esque unitard, horned hood and collar.
Notable differences:  The boots.  Normally Harley has little collar ankle booties but Niansa elected to wear her lovely knee-high boots.  Everything except the red boot cover was made by myself.

Costume 3 - Sarah from "Tanz der Vampire" (old style)
The Model: Laura Steele www.modelmayhem.com/misssteele (This lovely lady stepped in at literally the last minute after my original model flaked the night before the shoot)
The Costume:  Sarah's red ball gown from the German-language musical "Tanz der Vampire." The main difference here is the length - the original model was 5'11" but failed to ever show up for a proper fitting and I overestimated the length - it's supposed to cut at the ankle.  The little red tiara was originally a normal, clear tiara turned red by means of clear red enamel and a brush!  The shoes are low-heeled court shoes with two straps across the arch of the arch of the foot and are painted red to match the dress.

Costume 4 - The Blue Vampire from "Tanz der Vampire" (old style)
The Model: Meluxine
The Costume: The blue ball gown is worn by Sarah's dance double in the show.  The dress is very similar in cut to Sarah's red ball gown, it's just put together differently.  The shoes are the same as the ones used with Sarah's red dress but are not painted.
I did once (ie in 2009) say that I would never make the costumes from this part of the show because they were just too hard and too complicated.  But I decided that I really needed to challenge myself if I was going to have a half a hope in hell of getting into this course.

Costume 5 - Herbert's from "Tanz der Vampire" (new style)
The Model: me, Nsaia (Yes, this is ACTUALLY me, a lot of people who've seen these shots haven't recognised me for some reason so I'd just to reiterate that it is me underneath all the fabric. :giggle:)
The Costume: First Act Finale Outfit.  Herbert's outfit is a multi layer suit topped with a jabot and cape.

Oh no, one-oh! One-one, rise with the sun.

Journal Entry: Fri Dec 31, 2010, 5:00 AM



It's nearly over...  According to my clock here, there's only about 33 more minutes in this year.  New year, new decade and all that jazz.

Like a lot of other people, I am waving this year goodbye and hoping the door hits it in the arse on the way out for good measure.  2010 has not been the year I hoped it could be.  It has had some highs - getting to strut my stuff in Matt Bylett's designs in the Lunar Morph finale was one heck of a high. (Discovering I got a parking ticket at 11pm that night was not.)  I have made some wonderful new friends and reconnected with some old ones.  At the same time, this has been tempered by the loss of some of my nearest and dearest friends from my life.  I nearly lost my father to illness and spent some time in hospital myself only to be told I was perfectly healthy.  I have battled with myself more than anything this year, being forced to make decisions I never wanted to have to make and close the book on things I thought would last well into the future.  I had the sad realisation that some of what I consider to be my best art is garbage to the artists I made it with.  I have struggled to remember what I want from myself as a model and I am still trying to find my feet again but I always believe that by questioning things constantly, we learn and grow.  I had a very concerning realisation a while ago that I could not remember most of this year.  Admittedly this is not exactly a year I wish to remember but the things I want to remember are lost in a vague blur.  Slowly, I have been recovering these and forcing myself to make them stick.

I have been pushed and pulled in many directions and I am ready for a change.  I do not want to be the person I have been this last year because that is not who I am.  I am have experienced lows I never thought I would have the misfortune of experiencing and have felt like I was broken into a million little pieces but 2011 is the year I will find the glue and start to piece them back together.  I know what I have to do to fix some things but others are not so simple.  I have already made some changes these last couple of months and am already seeing some good come from it.

When a colleague of mine passed away earlier this year, it scared all of us at work.  We all decided we would not sit idly any more.  We would make conscious choices to do the right thing by ourselves.  For me, I will no longer be the girl who walks around on broken feet because she does not have time to see a doctor.  I am human and I am breakable and fallible.

One enormous fucking thank you to everyone who has picked me up and pulled me along and pushed me into things.  Without you, I literally wouldn't be here and I hope I repay the favours in this year to come.

What does 2011 hold?  Fucked if I know but here's hoping it's better than 2010! :D

And now we countdown... 3, 2, 1... 2011 IS HERE!

Melbourne 2011

Journal Entry: Sat Dec 25, 2010, 5:18 PM



Quick post folks...

I'm going to be in Melbourne for friend's wedding on January 14th (in the Dandenongs) and I'm going to be in and around Melbourne from about the 13th to the 16th and was wondering if anyone wants to do a shoot.  I won't have my own transport when I'm down there so I'll need some help getting around the place.  Looking for paid shoots preferably but will consider TFP depending on what's on offer.

The Hermit

Journal Entry: Wed Oct 13, 2010, 4:39 AM



Just in case you hadn't noticed, I've been somewhat MIA this year...  Probably not going to be around until Christmas the way things are going, but I am still here, just battling a  unknown strain of flu that is more likely to affect if you have HAVE had a flu shot and are in the geographic area that I work in...  Go figure!

What I have been doing whilst I've not been on DA is working.  I've had two different jobs this year and the second one has actually become a permanent fixture in my life.  Unfortunately, it takes up 13hrs of my day from when I get up to when I get home so I'm left with precious little time to do much else.  My weekends have been taken up with a MASSIVE personal project which, if it succeeds, will have an enormous impact on my life.  I've commandeered the assistance of Meluxine, Niansa, Miztress and several others, so hopefully between all of them, I'll succeed.  The odds are pretty steep, but I have a damned good bunch of supporters/helpers.

I've managed a couple of shoots this year - a mammoth group shoot at an abandoned mental asylum way up in the mountains at the start of this year and a couple of late night shoots with Sidetracked Designs.  I'll have a couple more done by the end of the year - they might not appeal to a massive audience, but I'm looking forward to them.

I nearly lost an immediate family member earlier this year, thankfully an operation and a week in hospital means I still have them.  Unfortunately, only a few days ago, I lost a colleague.  It was without warning and we still don't know why.  I also spent about three months at the start of the year being unable to walk properly thanks to having recurring stress fractures in one foot!

On a happier note, this year I was lucky enough to strut my stuff down the Lunarmorph catwalk for the amazing Matt Bylett - www.mattbylettdesigns.com/ - if you want latex then this is the guy! Also got to model Gallery Serpentine clothing and FINALLY own not one but two beautiful Obsidian-Lace corsets!  If you love corsets and haven't checked her out, why not?

So in the mean time, whilst I'm curled up feeling sorry for myself whilst I battle this flu, enjoy the new pic with me and Niansa! :)

Anyone go?  

I did, but I didn't get to see any of it - too busy trying not to fall off my shoes! :)

Clothing - I do wear it!

Journal Entry: Sun Aug 29, 2010, 4:17 AM



Some times!  Just ask darrenphillips - who failed to recognise me down in Melbourne fully dressed! :P

I'm still here.  Real life taking a hell of a hit right now and I'm really not online much these days.  Hopefully come October things will settle down a bit :)

Finally had a chance the other night to do something I've wanted to do for a long time - I got to shoot Gallery Serpentine!  The lovely Miztress was kind enough to introduce me to the fantastic Sidetracked Designs a couple of months ago and we hit it off right away - our phone bills can attest to how well we get on! :P  And so, he called me up the other week and asked would I like to shoot some Gallery Serpentine stuff?  WOULD I EVER?!  A few false starts in there, but a lot of laughs and some great photos with some great clothing and some of Sidetracked Designs' great props too!

10 for 10 & Art Theft Alert

Journal Entry: Thu Jun 24, 2010, 4:21 AM



I know I've been away for a LONG time on DA and I have my reasons which I won't bore you with, but suffice to say, I logged in today and found 666 deviations wanting my attention! :P

Right now, I'm passing the love along with a feature.  First 9 people to comment on this journal get three of their pictures of my choice featured here.  In return you then do the same thing - feature me and nine other deviants! :D

#8 Entrophile
The Ties that BindCan I tell you how I fell from glory
trying to free my mind?
My reasons are another story,
closely intertwined.
When I lost my self among the ruin
in a city draped in rust.
When I found myself so out of tune,
I knelt in ash and dust.
It rained on my face.
It soaked through my skin.
I'm ashamed and disgraced.
Death upon me, but life within.
Enslaved, I found myself a subject
of a will that was my own.
I bound myself, an object
cast before an empty throne.
And I tore myself an open mind,
restrained by jagged wire.
The ties that bind, the ones that blind
will be consumed by fire.
With our without me,
though one will remain to save...
No, I won't let it hold me down.
No, I won't let you hold me down.
No, I won't let you hold me down.
I will be unbound.
   Learning to SwimMaybe it's time
to stop these games.
To pay for my crimes,
to stop passing blame.
I'm looking for answers
in all the wrong places.
I'm choking on the sin
that pollutes my sea of faces.
Chorus 1:
And this ocean rages
and I still can't swim.
You can pull me out,
or you can push me back in.
This water's cold,
but it's all I know.
You can pull me out, or push me in.
Let me sink here, below.
I don't care.
There is so little time.
There is so much to say.
It's been so many years
and yet it haunts me to this day.
Each tear betrays a little,
a little of my debt.
I'm doing time for all my crimes,
and I've redefined regret.
Chorus 1 ->
(musical break)
Chorus 2:
And this ocean rages
but I've LEARNED TO SWIM!
You can pull me out,
or you can push me back in!
This water's cold,
but it's all I know!
You can pull me out, or push me in.
Let me sink here, below!
I don't care!
I don't care!
   Only HopeWhat if I said it's growing cold here?
I'm not dead, but I'm growing old here.
Don't offer me a coat, don't offer me a cane.
Just hold me in your arms love, and everything can change.
And I can go on to say...
I will love you 'til this messed up world has faded away.
Chorus:
And I can only hope
that you'll still be here.
And I can only hope
that you'll stay.
And I...
Can only wish.
What if I said that you are the sun that shines upon my face?
And if I could stop time, I'd freeze-frame this moment, but that's not the case.
You can call me a loser, you can call me a freak.
There has never another so close to what I seek,
and I can go on to say...
I still love you, though you've torn out my heart, and thrown me away.
Chorus:
And I can only hope
that you'll still be here.
And I can only hope
that you'll stay.
And I...
Can only wish.

!!!ART THIEF ALERT!!!
Thank you to stanb  for bringing this to my attention.  There is a new collector on Flickr and they have had a field day here on DA.  No one has been asked permission to post the pictures although oddly, he is crediting the artists in the title which makes it remarkably easy to search for your own art!  I highly recommend you read Stan's journal here: stanb.deviantart.com/journal/3… he's got a compartively small handful of artists that he recognised listed along with many other interesting things regarding various other art thieves he has found.  Or if you just want to find yourself, go straight here  www.flickr.com/photos/48889458… look for yourself.  He is very fetish oriented, from the slightest hint to as hardcore as he could find.  He is not fussy as to medium, in addition to photos, there is digital art, comic style art... You name it, it's there!  Heck, I think I even saw some Disney!  BUT WAIT, THERE'S MORE!  www.flickr.com/photos/49965828… another thief with yet more art from DA, this time strictly black and white, albeit a MUCH smaller collection!

A few other names I found in addition to Stan's list:
steeneeweenee
revelio
emu_photography
tmronin
VauntDesigns
cziiki
lacrima83
AntisepticFashion
ulorinvex
dougfdoug
captatio
plunderbunny
solitudoaeternus

Keep in mind, I just skimmed over the first 20pgs and found all those names that I personally recognised.  There are 225pgs on this user's Flickr...  I strongly suggest that if you have EVER been involved in any fetish or even "just" nude art, have a look.  There is a very good chance that you will find something of your own or something of someone you know.

*Update:  A polite note got me my art removed and an apology so anyone wanting their stuff to come down, it will happen if you ask nicely :)
