All can glitter, if you make it gold

After my surgery, I was eager to plan something in New York. I have been thinking about this concept all throughout my recovery period and knew that Yasutaké Kosaka was just the man to pull of this amazing hair concept.

He created two amazing wigs that were absolutely beautiful. It was wonderful to do a street shoot again, I don't think I have done one since I was in school. I think the people of New York definitely got an eye full when our team walked down the street. It's not ever day you see a beautiful girl in a shinning gold wig! Well maybe less out of the ordinary in New York.....

Howling at the moon, Lady Wolf Birthday!

I went up to Boston for my birthday, I have never has large birthday celebrations but spending this birthday with this particular group of people has definitely been one of my favorites.

We went out and shared specialty drinks and comfort food, we laughed and screamed at each other, we made pictures and words out of sparkling light, and made memories that I will cherish forever.

Thank you, you are all immensely special <3

I dream of wolves and glitter, of sparkly eye priestesses, and of everlasting friendship.

Day Trip to NYC

I had to go to New York City for the day to have an interview with fashion photographer Ruven AfanadorAiluj and WinteR came along for the day so after my interview (which was an absolutely amazing experience) we were able to walk around the city and show Ailuj some of the sites. We were also able to meet up with the talented Yasutaké Kosaka.

First things first... Coffee!

In The Days of Innocence

  Shooting at The Harvard Museum of Natural History was an amazing experience. Thank you to my amazing team of Sam Mendoza, Rose Fortuna, Yasutaké Kosaka, and Tessa Morrissey @ Maggie (especially Tessa and Rose who came straight to set from a Karmaloop shoot earlier in the day, you guys are amazing.)

  The whole experience was unforgettable, it has secretly been a dream of mine to be locked away in a museum after hours. I can't remember the novel that instilled that desire in me but it has, at long last, been fulfilled!

  The story of this shoot is one of a girl who is the last living being. She lives and seeks comfort in a place where everything is posed and manicured to look alive, this museum.

  I have always thought museums rather strange places. Millions of people cycle through, pressing their hands to glass and looking at objects and specimens from the past. Things that have been void of life for sometimes thousands of years. It is interesting to think that, as a society, we are so uncomfortable with death that we do incredibly intricate things to make things appear alive forever.

  I like the idea that if a person was the last living being, they would seek out these places of suspended time and make them their reality, building relationships and reverence for the things contained within it's walls.
