Adding New Clothes in My Etsy Shop From Past Shoots

15 May

I am currently in the process of listing some of my costumes in my Etsy shop!

Here you can see the finished gown, which looks more tailored than most Cranach style gowns, which was the effect I was going for. I also include a close up of the slashed sleeves.

My Cranach style gown is now available for purchase on Etsy!.

When I make a costume for a shoot, there are some I keep and some I sell. I have been unable to list my costumes for sale for about a year, and now I am starting to get some up online. You’ll find a lot of very different Pirate shirts, a few pirate vests, and hopefully I will get some dresses up there soon, as well!

Crumpled Steampunk newsboy cap.

I have also gathered a few strange pieces here and there, like the antique wool bodice which is very cool looking but in poor condition. I thought someone may be able to do something with it.

Antique Brown wool bodice in rough shape.

Many of these men’s shirts appear in my Mozart Project.

Pirate-y style! Arggh!

These pirate sleeves have a lot of fabric!

White Peasant style shirt.

The drapey fabric looks great in photos. You’ll find the one below in my Don Giovanni image.

White rayon pirate shirt with a lot of drape from my Don Giovanni shoot.

I also had a mad idea to make an awesome cheesecloth shirt, but never got around to using it.

Awesome blue cheesecloth fantasy shirt that I never got around to using.

The following shirt is from the Don Giovanni shots as well.

White Damask print shirt from my Don Giovanni shoot.

Hopefully I’ll get some dresses up on Etsy soon, too!

My Next Project – A Steampunk Guide to Hunting Monsters!

18 Oct

My Mozart Project is close to completion. I have one photo left to take and a dozen left to edit. While I work on these, I am starting a new project with blogger Alisa Kester!

In 2012, Alisa and I worked together on a steampunk photoshoot for Dark Beauty Magazine. We decided to work together again using Alisa’s new Steampunk Monster costumes. But the more we talked about it, the more we thought it would be fun to create a Steampunk book instead.

This book will feature a lady adventurer named Philomena Dashwood who is invited on a Monster Hunting Tour which travels the entire globe. During her trip she keeps a diary about her exploits as she encounters Vampires, Zombies, Mummies, Werewolves, Ghosts, etc.. as well as numerous handsome young suitors! Imagine Jane Austen meets Scooby Doo – but with real monsters, of course! You can read the first chapter here!

“The Steampunk Ladies’ Guide to Hunting Monsters” will be half fashion spread, half narrative fiction. Each chapter will be divided by monster and will feature both a full photographic illustration of a scene from the chapter as well as numerous tin-type/daguerreotype photos of the people and monsters the heroine meets. Accompanying these pictures will be journal entries, news clippings, telegrams, love notes etc.

We are starting a Kickstarter Fundraiser to help us raise money to make our book and would be so happy to have you take a look or share this fundraiser! It only lasts until November 15th, and we only get funded if we reach our goal!

We would love to have you participate! Visit our blog steampunkmonsters.com!

On Passing

23 Jul

On the morning of Memorial Day 2012 I was headed to my Father’s house for a visit. We had planned to see Star Trek, watch Arrested Development Season 4, and create some props and things for my next photos. By the time I arrived, my father had killed himself.

He was sick and he was tired, and he did not want to live any longer.

We had no “unfinished business”, “words unspoken” or “pent up anger” or anything that usually exists between parents and their children — which makes his death easier to bear.

He always supported me. He always supported my art. He never got to see me succeed, and he never will.

Essentially, I am an airplane that has lost one of its wings.

Now, as the executor of the estate I am stuck here working on closing accounts, selling all of my father’s earthly goods, the house, and paying bills with the help of whichever faithful friend I can summon to my aid.

I would like to thank my friends for their show of support. My friend Roman has come to help me run the estate for July, but I am worried that I will not be able to finish things alone when he leaves. I have only been allowed to grieve the way I need to by my friend Trevor, and I am worried that by the time my work here is done, and I am allowed to grieve, that everyone else’s sympathy will be spent, all their tears cried, and me left alone.

I have two Mozart Photos left to take to finish this project which my father supported, participated in and practically paid for. I hope that I can finish to honor his memory.

My Photography in Dimension Magazine

16 Nov

My work was recently featured in Dimension Magazine. This time I covered all these guys in glitter and flowers, and told them to look grumpy. Like wet cats.

Roman, with a bad attitude because he hates wearing flowers. He’s not just acting. He really does hate wearing flowers. Ask him.

I worked with four models. Roman, part of the music duo “Clark & Candles“, returns once again, and looks pretty amazing, but I think he likes these images the least of all the shots we’ve ever done. It must be the glitter.

My friend Lizzie says that glitter is like the Herpes of the crafting world.

It’s very difficult to get rid of.

It’s actually still stuck to the wall wherever these guys leaned on it. Won’t come off.

Arri Lund. Arri doesn’t seem to mind wearing flowers as much.

I also worked with Arri, who was a part of my Steampunk pictures which were featured in Dark Beauty Magazine in July. Arri just sort of blends in with whatever style you put him in, even big floral jewelry.

The Jewelry is all hand made by myself and multi-media artist Jamie Vowell. It is a mix of hand made silk flowers and upcycled, recycled and broken vintage jewelry parts.

Jacob Federspiel-Smith with big hair and statement jewelry.

I did all the hair and make-up myself, and the most complicated was Jake’s hair. I had to make it poofy on the top. I’ve wanted to do this to Jake’s hair for years.

Xak

I met Xak on this photo shoot, and now he and I are working on all sorts of projects together!  Xak is an artist, too, as well as a musician. So, we’ve been working together on lots of high concept photos and even a big music project that I hope to share with you soon!

Xak, flipping us off.

My Photography in Dark Beauty Magazine, 2nd Annual Steampunk Edition

1 Jul

Hello everybody! I have some more fun news! This month, I have an 8 page editorial in “Dark Beauty Magazine“!

The special thing about this magazine is that it is a Steampunk Special Edition with 120 pages of photography featuring Steampunk clothing, accessories, masks (by Tom Banwell) and hats (By the very talented Topsy-Turvy Designs)!

My spread features clothing and accessories created by my shop One Delightful Day on Etsy.!

Alternate “Dark Beauty” Cover by Tyson Vick

The model is my good friend Arri. We did this shoot a while back, trying to emulate the style of the old Victorian portraits and theater Photographs. I wanted to keep the Steampunk understated, and go big on the hair. Arri sports three different hairstyles, and each time we were done, he had to completely wash his hair out to re-set it (Click for pics).

He appears as a Gentleman (below), a sort of pantomime Villain (Plotting in the image above), shirtless while sporting various Steampunk accessories (Even further down), and an old-timey boxer.

“Agent” Editorial by Tyson Vick. All the clothes in this spread were made by me!

Elizabeth at Blush helped with the make-up before the shoot started, and I’m sure she was thankful not to have to stick around for any of the shoot, because it lasted 12 hours! It was a pretty amazing length of time for a photo shoot! Arri wanted to plow on through, and keep trying new things — and also not eat in case it effected his physique. We got some cool images out of it!

Now, I can’t show you all of the images right this moment, but I hope to release more as the month progresses! Here’s one more:

The boys were photographed wearing white in these really cool cement corridors that I came across in the area.  I think both guys look really cool.

Trevor’s pic (bel0w) is featured as the Kismet homepage background this month (April 2012), as well as on the cover of the Netherlands issue, which is pretty cool. Seein’ his big old head takin’ over the page. Loves it.

Princess-Pea photoshoot by Tyson Vick for T&M Magazine #9, The Pastels Issue!

The shoot was put together by a collaboration with textile artist Jamie Vowell. Jamie created the sets from her collection of fabrics, pillows and quilts. She drew upon the local antique market, Montana Camp Antiques and Boutiques, for mattresses and the bed frame.  Jamie wrote a blog featuring making-of photos and outtakes from this shoot on her blog, Remnants, if you would like to take a look. She also did a post on the crowns used in the shoot!

Roman Fisher and Melissa posed as the Prince and Princess in garments by Armani, Felina, Calvin Klein and my own One Delightful Day. Roman’s own blog, “Built For Success” features many more images and outtakes!

Melissa’s beautiful fabric hair flowers were created for the shoot by Halsey Bishop and her shop Spunky Junky! Halsey has also written a post about her involvement on her own blog!

With the kind permission of Mike Libster we were allowed to shoot in The Historic Belgrade Mercantile. Elizabeth Dellwo at Blush created the make-up design using Glo-Minerals make-up.

You will see my popular Gingko Corset in the photos, which I’m glad will be able to get more exposure!
