Yesvember!

5 Nov

It has been a manic couple of weeks but most of it has been positive, uplifting and very happy! I’ve learned to light a fire in my cosy wood-burning stove so am snuggled up in my lounge with to-die-for gingerbread latte cooling on my tree-stump coffee table, and dinner roasting in the oven (butternut squash with basil butter).
It’s hard to know where to start…

I’m featuring in Kirameki Magazine this month, with an interview and an article! It’s the Girl Power issue and will focus on strong women, feminism (read my article before dismissing it as a dirty word- I promise I’m not a man-hater!) :D I just read that as ‘man-eater’, I’m not a man eater either. :P There will also be some photos I’ve been sitting on for ages- if you’re a leather or Mad Max/post-apocalyptic clothing fan, you need to see this!
Here’s a behind-the-scenes I took during the shoot:
10396282_10154381553110221_2794063853921449507_n

I was honoured to do an interview for Radio Vienna last month, covering my life and work so far- as well as opinions on model safety, fetishism and other bits and pieces too. If you want to hear my very, very English accent (the interview is in English), follow the link and start listening at the 22:00 mark.
It was my first radio interview (other than a very brief publicity chat I did for an event in 2008!) so was nervous to say the least!

Though voting is now over for Miss Fetish Europe and the event is this weekend, I have just been told I’m also nominated for the award of “Fetish Model of the Year 2015″! If you would like to send a vote my way, follow this link and scroll through the ladies until you get to me, then give me any number you feel I’m worth! Preferably a 10… :P

I have some new sets on Zivity, with the very lovely Andrew Shiels (and help/lookout duty from Georgia!) I have a teaser here with Yummy Gummy latex but head on over to my Zivity page for all the sets. If you aren’t a member, that’s no problem- you can unlock sets for about $3!
Andrew had also commissioned a surprise for Georgia- I’d secretly been drawing one of their gorgeous horses and sneaked it in my suitcase. It has been delivered now so I can show you! Here she is! I’m setting up a mini-site for my drawing work but if you would like to see more or commission a portrait of your own, get in touch ASAP as I can still send things out before Christmas.

I’m off to Dominatrix this weekend, have a month full of latex shoots, possibly my first shoot on my boat(!) and so many articles on my list, so I decided to do something else too. Now I can confirm I’m not only bats, but a total masochist as well, as I am doing NaNoWriMo this year again. For those not in the know, it’s National Novel Writing Month and participants pledge to write 50,000 words in 30 days.
Look: it’s official!

I’m using the month to give my crime thriller “The Ferryman” a kick up the ass! I actually published an extract on a friend’s blog a long time ago. Though I’m already itching to edit it, you can have a read by clicking HERE! The book will be about some post-mortem examiners playing a very sick game, and one will be a woman not motivated by revenge or money (a rare thing in any genre). That’s all I’m saying for now.

I hate going without blogging for so long, as news just piles up and I couldn’t not mention Shoshana B Roberts’s video of street harassment in New York. It makes my blood boil and it’s a whole other blogpost but I hope more women do this (video the abuse). One of the biggest problems I find when talking about this issue is men having no idea why it is so threatening and frustrating. (And it is hard to explain. Constant looks and comments about how attractive you are sounds great… until you hear the tone of voice for yourself. Until you see the leers with your own eyes.) This video helps explain. While I personally answer the ‘have a nice day’ types with ‘thankyou, you too’ unless they are said in that creepy leery way, the kissy noises and long stares, not to mention the guy walking beside her are utterly unforgivable. You know what? I’m getting shaky and angry already so I’m going to save it for a day or so, so that I can compose a proper blog about it rather than a segment of this catch-up. Certainly, I encountered so much this summer that I kept a diary of the comments and stares with the intention of publishing it online. I’m glad this issue is finally getting the attention it deserves.

I’m back from Belgium, where I met some lovely fellow models, ate a lot of Belgian chocolate and shot in some beautiful places. I even tell a funny story about the trip during my radio interview so do have a listen… ;)
Here are just some of the places I’ve been:

Mayday Mayday!

Okay, it’s not that bad, but I am living on dry land again as my poor little houseboat has a hole in her! I got to drive her for the first time in beautiful sunny weather surrounded by nesting moorhens and secret sculptures among the willow trees. Okay, it was back to the boatyard to get her craned out again but still, the journey was lovely. ;)

It’s even a beautiful Spring day on land!
WP_20140415_010

As I’ve been working on making my boat ready to live on, I haven’t had the chance to do much posting or blogging sadly. Sorry about that! I’m trying to catch up, I promise.

Though it’s a hectic time, I do love to travel and I can’t wait to watch for bluebells on this journey! If you are a photographer and interested in booking me for a woodland, riverside or any kind of Spring photoshoot then get in touch as soon as possible- I am a busy bee and only have the days listed below free:
April: 25th, 26th, 27th, 28th, 29th (Available anywhere)
May 5th (Available anywhere)
11th (Wales)
16th, 20th early-4pm (Dublin)
27th, 28th, 29th, 30th (Available anywhere)

I’m eagerly awaiting my new pair of New Rocks- I fell in love with them while modelling for the company in February (which was a modelling dream come true!) You’ll have to wait to see the boots in question but here are a couple of backstage pics…

Spiky things picked up from the floor? Don’t mind if I do…

I found myself performing onstage in a special latex fetish show with Amarantha the latex goddess- bringing her to life from her shiny cocoon, then discovering I had bitten off more than I could chew! ;)
I hadn’t expected to do more than a fashion show that night, let alone anything bendy- so it was a nice surprise and good reminder that I love to perform onstage. (Hint hint… keep an eye out for exciting plans this year).

As I may have mentioned before, I draw things, paint and use chalk pastels as well. I am really happy to announce I am now taking commissions for pets, children, car, socks, anything! ;) If you or anyone you know would like a personalised hand-drawn picture by yours truly, please get in touch!
Fixing my boat has been a more than a little costly and it would be lovely if I could give you something in return for any generosity.
A5 pictures are £20 (and P+P)
A4 pictures are £30 (and P+P)

Here are some I made earlier… and of course I will post more when I am reunited with my sketchbook.

I have so many pictures to show you and so much to do so I’m going to sign off and leave you with a taster of what’s to come in my next blogs:
- I play a Maenad-like creature in an outfit of my own creation
- I visit the woodland with Pirate Photography and produce some of my favourite pictures yet…
- I play the submissive in leather
- I talk to Kinkly magazine about life as a fetish model
- I get terribly proper and have a chat about manners! Ooh-er! ;)

Have a wonderful day!

Shining noir

29 Sep
Shiny.
1.
Radiating light; bright.
2. Bright from reflected light; glistening.
3. Having a sheen from being rubbed or worn smooth.
4. A good thing- expression of contentment (Firefly <3 )

So, I have a different kind of shiny for you below- I’m in PVC and being all film noir!

I would have loved to tell you all about my contortion class yesterday but there was a bit of drama on the tube and things went a little downhill. (A businessman fainted and so my eating-before-class time was taken up with ambulance-related waiting and ‘make sure he isn’t going to kick the bucket without telling him I’m terrified’ chat.) I decided ‘what the heck- I’ll go bending anyway’, nearly fainted myself from foodlessness, had an embarrassed sniffle in a baklava bar and decided I’d try again on Wednesday. (Forward walkover, here I come!) Don’t go too long without eating, folks! :P
By the way, it was motion-related and he was fine. Yay!

Ahem…

A few of you have asked whether it is possible to see the leaderboard for the award I am nominated for (Europe’s Best Up and Coming Fetish Model). I’m afraid it isn’t so we’ll have to wait in suspense…
If you haven’t voted already, please do so- there are under 30 candidates- I really do have a good chance here and you’ll get free prints out of it! And my happy smily face too. ;)

Here’s the link again: http://www.dominatrix.nl/models/model/621
And pleeeease share it- or at the least, my facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Roswell-Ivory-model-and-writer/152654844767588

Earlier this year, I did a Heavy Rubber and PVC shoot with Keital, who brought with him a fantastic array of outfits and an assistant who tried his hand at modelling later! I’m more used to latex fashion so the challenge of doing something different is good fun- especially when the team wanted to make use of my wigs and styling skills.

We started with this pretty raincoat, which I would happily wear outside in a rainstorm! (You can’t see here, but there was an umbrella design and little diamantes to look like raindrops aroundd the hem).

m6kkc9NgXKwfN-dmlXtFumJjxglPjSbzMN1IQxzIF9o

And then I played with this trippy umbrella while attempting my first victory roll up-do. I may have to get the umbrella too- I saw a whole mackintosh made from the same material while in Covent Garden the other day.

_XwzTqg5N_LVx_51gi7EfQ4P6swe2qd6KcR5tAA32c0

I do like the way black wigs work when wearing an entirely black outfit. A flash of red hair can work well too, but I have a soft spot for this wig. ;) Note the ballet boots, which I can now stand in!

I met with my associate…

… and we became partners in solving crime. :P

And what heavy rubber themed photoshoot would be complete without a gas mask??? So I got under the shower.

That really is steam rising from me- I like it when studios have hot showers. I hear that the pool Vogue uses for water shoots isn’t even heated! Lucky me! :)

I’m going to go and make some dinner now- I’ve been cooking a lot recently as I stay with friends. It’s nice to cook for lots of people. :)
Today, I’m making a yummy, moderately healthy kale, lentil and bacon dish.

Speak to you soon!

To you, good news.

23 Sep

Hello everyone!

This is not a down time- I’m a very happy lady right now and it’s time to share my good news.

In 9 months time, I will be giving birth…

TO A NOVELLA!!!! :D

That’s right- the story I told you about in my entry “Urban Decay” is one of only four novellas that have been accepted for publication in an anthology of steampunk stories! Isn’t that awesome!?

Remember, fetish is not just about latex fashion (that’s what I’m writing about at the moment) and to recap some of my many adventures in fetish modelling, have a lovely selection of pictures…

The Covergirl and the Resistance

22 Jul

HOORAYYYYYYYY!!!!!
A happy Roswell is back in the UK (though flying out to Ireland again tomorrow.) I’m very excited to tell you I am on the current cover of Alternative Revolution magazine, with a two page spread and interview inside!
You can buy your very own copy by CLICKING THIS LINK.

Check it out!!

It was one of my New Year’s Resolutions to have at least two covers and three features- I have the first cover, three features and as for the second cover… well, I don’t want to jinx it so I’m keeping quiet about that… ;)

I had such a wonderful time in Europe this year- in fact, best Eurotour ever! I have so many pictures to show you, including the new bondage pictures that so many of you have mailed to ask me for… I’ll put my trip into a proper order when I return on Saturday and then normal blogging can commence, but as I couldn’t wait to show you these, here you are!
I think I look like I’m hiding from some kind of steampunk-y danger in this factory and trying to get the place working again, before being captured. Hence the second part of my title. :D

The factory I was in is probably one of the most awe-inspiring locations I have ever worked in. It is a rare occasion that a place makes my jaw literally drop (yes, I do mean ‘literally’ here, not ‘virtually’) but this place did it. It’s over five storeys high and towers over the little town next to it. There were hares running around the wood surrounding it and at one point, I could hear distant bells from somewhere nearby. Half of a wall was missing and through the giant gap, I could see forest, tall neon signs and factories blowing steam- I felt as though I had stepped into a videogame or sci-fi art book.

My cameraphone pictures will not do it justice, but I’m going to try anyway with a few ‘behind the scenes’.

Quote of the day:
“Other photographers often contact me asking how I got the dirt effect on my models. Um… it’s DIRT!”

And yes, it certainly is. :P

I’m putting together a selection of pictures that I will then sell as prints and I’m certainly planning on doing a pack of three of these ones so if there are any you would particularly like as prints, let me know and I’ll bear it in mind. :D
I’m slacking on my German lesson at the moment so in between packing, I’m off to practise for my next trip to Berlin (and possibly a few other cities too) in November…

I hope you’re enjoying the sun here, or if you’re like me and hate the heat, I hope you’ve found a shady spot with the icy-cold snack of your choice.

Speak to you when I’m back!
