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. ;)

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).

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.

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!

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

Photographer: Calvato
Make-up/hair: Me, using products from Factory Floor. Shade: Dirt

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!

The Battle of Byrd’s Barns

22 Jun

I’m in Belgium. Godiva truffles happened. :S

Now I’m curled up in the awesome personal space capsule I found and blogging to you! :) So I didn’t win a Deep Down and Kinky Award, but I wasn’t on the official nominees list so am hoping to be there next year! ;) I *am* on the list for the Best Up and Coming Fetish Model Award later this year so keep your eyes out and I’ll keep you posted with when to vote.
I’m also a potential cover model for Alternative Revolution! (I’m on the left, in a wig.)

If you would like to see me on the cover (I will of course be signing a batch), then send the guys a message by clicking here and letting them know. Thanks to all the lovely fans who already did so- you read my mind!

So I was in Ireland last month to see the fantastic Gareth Byrd and help him out with a project, as well as shoot some latex! :) The shoot didn’t end up going to plan as I was taken quite horribly ill, but I’ll be back in Ireland this year for a few days and have plans. PLANS, I tell you! ;)

Anyway, we still got a lot done so have a look at some of our latest stuff!

Fetish vs Feminism?

27 May

Welcome, new readers from The Frisky and xoJane!
If you’re an ‘old’ reader, you’ll remember my blog in response to the memoirs of a nude model known as “Anonymous”… well, I contacted the magazine in question and they requested a piece from me about being a fetish model. It went live a few days ago- so here you are:
“I’m a Fetish Model”, written for The Frisky magazine.

Now, the Deep Down and Kinky Awards are upon us and I’m up for nomination. If you could please take the 30 seconds it takes to type my name in the “other” option in the modelling category, it’ll make me such a happy lady. Thanks in advance. CLICK FOR THE FORM

I’ve just returned from a tour of Ireland and while there I was asked by several different people how it is that I can be both a feminist and a model of the nude and fetish variety. It’s a question that baffles me; I have never considered my beliefs that contraception/abortion should be free and accessible to all, that women and men deserve equal pay, that remaining childfree should be acceptable and that women should fight for the rights of those without the luxury of a voice to be incompatible with having my picture taken for a living.

A friend of one of the team mentioned exploitation- don’t make me laugh! Someone desperate for money and uncomfortable with nudity but agreeing to show her body for some cash? That is exploitation (provided the photographer knows her situation, of course.) However, I choose to model in this way. Can one really be exploited when one makes such a choice every day? And that, really is what it comes down to. Choice. Is the cornerstone of feminism not choice, after all? The choice to work, the choice to terminate an unwanted pregnancy, the choice to wear tight jeans and still expect courtesy, not catcalls?
While I have been saddened to see a few acquaintances discard their friends and interests in favour of marriage and children, I do respect that while not my choice, it is no less valid. It is not exploitation by the mass media, or any other scapegoat I can pull out of my butt and blame. I also have made a choice and any feminist should respect my right to make it.

I feel it does women a great disservice and is patronising to claim that just because I feature in images tied-up and playing submissive roles, I am somehow in need of help and re-education. (Not to mention, the fetish scene also has a substantial market for submissive men, who feature in images just like mine.) The implication is that I cannot think for myself. The idea that women like me need saving or shepherding toward a different idea of womanhood is just as damaging as the rigidity of the 50s.

Disagree with my lifestyle all you like, but fight for the rights of women who need such help for I am not being exploited. I am a fetish model and a feminist, and I see no conflict here.
____________________________________

(Plenty more where that came from). :D

Now, I’m going to continue advertising for my Eurotour, which starts in just a couple of weeks! I’m so excited to return to Germany and not be exploited :P as well as seeing my Swedish friends and bouncing around Belgium for the first time.

Keep an eye out here for my further adventures…

p.s. These images were taken by my wonderful (female) friend Pirate Photography, who is ranked #1 in the UK on Zivity, for her photographs of nude women like me.
