Tales from the Riverbank

24 Sep

Hello again and happy Autumn! Though the weather’s been lovely and sunny there’s a definite chill and the pavement near me is covered in spiky conker cases. The swallows are gone (bon voyage, little ones- enjoy Africa!) I realy believe in the influence of the seasons- if it’s winter and you feel like hibernating, do it. 99/100 hedgehogs recommend it, after all. :P
BUT… I seem to be nesting instead! I’m doing DIY, I’m painting Tolkien quotes (“It’s a dangerous business, going out your door…”) and I’m making my room into the sci-fi boudoir of my imagination. It’s a really lovely feeling- making your home into a place that you want to return to. I’ll show you some pictures soon.

The fashion show I mentioned last blog went wonderfully, even with three outfits to wear in 11 minutes! There is a video and as soon as I have permission I will post it here, but for now here are some stills from Elysium photography:

Walking for Lady Allura. Check out my wings!!

Quick change and I’m trotting for Fabulously Fetish, with Constance Peach (who has a farm!) and Dominatrix Joyce in the middle.

And another lightning change- back to Lady Allura latex with harness by JuJu Jezebel.

I love concepts, editorials and fairytales so when photographer Emma-Jane asked me to work on a project with her, it was the squeeeee heard around the globe! :) It was an early start and the grass was dewy when we set up our little world. Papers flying, material stretching and me balancing on one thigh to save the broken and valiant tiny chair Emma had serendipitously found discarded shortly before our shoot. Sudden ideas and half-formed stories discussed between shots. Roping in a stranger to help hold the set together. An adventure on a bus, pastries, curious pond birds. A stalker(!) Much, much pondweed…
Our shoot “Mizumi” was published in Most Magazine, so I can now share it with you…

The Red Woman

26 Feb

I was writing such a long in-depth blog about the new gender options on Facebook but it turns out Facebook has already implemented the solution I was going to offer. Well done, Facebook! :P

In short, instead of merely Female/Male, the social networking gods offered fifty-one new options for listing your gender. I absolutely agree that gender can be fluid and not quite as simple as ‘one or the other’- but while there will never be a box for everyone out there, it that necessarily a bad thing?
Despite Russia and Uganda’s best efforts, the world is slowly learning more about itself and accepting it’s inhabitants, but attempting to provide a box for every single person’s gender preference at every given time is neither proof of acceptance nor an effective way to combat ignorance. In fact, to me, the myriad words and options appeared to satirise rather than solve the problem!
A little like this: (NOT a real JS episode- it’s a clip from “Domino”): Watch up until about 1:20

While it is never nice to feel you don’t fit in, the thing is, nobody completely fits in with a label; I have a vagina, I identify as female, I am attracted to both genders (one more so than the other), I do not dress in a typically female or male style, I do not want children, I have a typically female-looking body, I am not sure if I would be attracted to somebody especially androgynous or trans- the situation hasn’t happened yet! These are elements of me as far as gender is concerned. Ingredients that make me who I am and the only label needed to tie them together is my name. No box needed.

My solution was to remove all the labels and replace them with an ‘other’ box in which people could write their preference. This way, everybody is included. When I attempted to change my gender to see the options, I was offered ‘Male’, ‘Female’, or the very box I suggested. I love it when a plan comes together… :D

I’m counting down to moving day next month. I’ve never been hunting for home decor before- there’s going to be a Kraken/Cthulhu-themed room but I can’t decide what colour the rest of the rooms should be! There is an easily customisable area outside that I can shoot on so my thinking cap is firmly on!

I worked with photographer Luci-Alice in December, shooting some accessories for Kaori’s Latex Dreams. She’s a fantastic designer with very elegant work. Some of our pictures were snapped up by Kirameki magazine in an instant- and here they are!

The first dress is by Pandora Deluxe and all headpieces and collars are by Kaori.
I did all hair and make-up.

I’m going to have a lovely homemade chai latte and work on a long-abandoned teens novel. :)

Speak to you very soon, and remember today is #WordyWednesday so if you have any questions for me, get in touch via Tumblr and I’ll answer!

Shiny Sunday!

18 Feb

Yes, I know that *technically* it isn’t Sunday any more but I was sleepy and needed my bed, mmmkay? ;)

I’m packing for a two-day booking in Spain at the moment- amazing the oufits and accessories that you forget you have! I’m looking forward to feeling the sun again, though it’s been beautiful in England these past couple of days. I had a really lovely day yesterday- listened to music on the train while watching for birds and animals, had a chilled-out shoot in a beautiful house in London, then watched the sunset over Windsor Castle as I arrived for my life-drawing class. (I was modelling- I can’t draw people!)
I also can’t find my connector- there are some gorgeous photos I wanted to show you from an awesome girly night in Anita De Bauch’s hotel suite! Next blog… :)

Now, if you’re following me on Tumblr or Twitter (and if you’re not, you should…) you’ll know that I’ve started posting some new pictures. Tuesday is now “Tied-Up Tuesday”- you’ll see a new picture of me in bondage every Tuesday, and Sunday is all about the latex, so it’s… “Shiny Sunday”! I’m thinking about some other days too: how about “Wild Wednesday”- pictures of me posing out in the wilderness? Or “Photoshop-free Friday”- a behind-the-scenes shot every week?
Let me know if you have any ideas- I’ll see what I can do!

On that note, I *do* listen to your ideas and what you have to say. I was sent a lovely message a few days ago by a fan and when I replied, he was surprised that I’d taken the time to do so. (You know who you are!) You all are one of the main reasons I love what I do and I will always reply to your messages. It may take me a little while as I get a lot of mail, but I always reply. :)

Soooooo…

About that Shiny Sunday…

I have a new set on Zivity by Sean McCormack! It was taken with Infrared and I think the pictures rock. Obviously, I can’t show you the whole set here but I’m posting three of my favourites.

Ponybright and proud.

6 Feb

Hey everyone!

I’m back at the Mothership, lighting a fire to warm my freezy little bisexual hands. I got up late, as I’d had a late bisexual night, I ate my bisexual breakfast and now, I’m writing a bisexual blog entry. (And three guesses what I’m about to write about…) ;)

For those of you who don’t know or aren’t in the UK, I’m very proud of my country today as UK MPs have voted in favour of legalising gay marriage by a landslide. Currently, gay people are allowed to have what is called a “civil ceremony/civil partnership”. It entitles couples to the same legal rights as a “married” couple, but is not called a marriage. Until recently, civil ceremonies could not be conducted in places of worship and did not include religious texts or hymns.

I have enormous respect for the real, historical Jesus Christ, in the same way that I respect the teachings of the Buddha and the Dalai Lama as I believe that all religions have something good to teach the world. In light of this, I believe that a man who preached an overwhelming message of love no matter what and defended marginalised members of society (at that time) would be disgusted at the hypocrisy his legacy has sometimes provoked. Jesus himself said nothing about gay people, and the two people in the Bible who mentioned it in any way also preached a whole lot of crazy that is now discarded. The MPs who used outdated quotes to vote against this ruling have no valid argument. None.
Anyway, back to my bisexual coffee…

One of the best things I have read is a statement by Liz Feldman:
“It is very dear to me- the issue of gay marriage- or as I like to call it, ‘marriage’. You know, because I had lunch this afternoon, not gay lunch. I parked my car- I didn’t gay park it.”
The term is now ‘equal marriage’, I think. (And hopefully one day, it will just be ‘marriage’. ;)

Well done, UK- I’m so proud of you!!! :D

And so, as I have no rainbow pictures (that’ll change soon as I have plans), I will post the next best thing…

You can’t tell from the pictures, but we were fighting against a mini-sandstorm and I kept getting blown around! Much fun though, as always. Berlin is most definitely one of my favourite cities- it’s the only place I could walk around dressed like that, with a bendy whip and not get stared at too much.

I’m off to have a chat with some magazine-y types now, so will speak to you soon.
Oh, and while I remember, I hear that a certain few fans of mine have been petitioning to put me on the cover of Skin Two. Thankyou guys, that is enormously flattering and utterly awesome. All I can say is keep it up, lol!! You’ll be the first to know if your advice is taken. :P
If you want to join in, my feature is here: http://www.skintwo.co.uk/roswell-ivory-model-and-writer/
And their twitter is here: https://twitter.com/SkinTwo

Oh, and one more thing! Can anyone recommend anywhere lovely (and preferably not too expensive) to visit in the Edinburgh area? I’m touring again as of the end of this month and want to see amazing things while I’m on the road.

I’m still alive!

Hi everyone!

Tales (my laptop) is having a holiday- ie he’s being fixed again, so I’m without my lovely 100+ folders of images at the moment and borrowing a friends internet. :(

We should be reunited in a few days and I’ll update you on all my news, but for now, have a couple of new “old” pictures from my first ever shoot with Pirate Photography! :) The hat is by Joy Williams.
