Interlude

1 Jul

So June was lovely! I spent some of it shooting ( a girl has to work after all!) and most of it seeing friends and painting Narnia inside my wardrobe (and other bits of boat decoration). Oh, and getting pictures magically appear in my inbox- I’m so happy with this one from a long-ago shoot with Max Operandi! (We’re arranging another shoot as I type).

I’m now advertising my last free days in England until OCTOBER!!! Seriously, I am almost fully booked for my tours so thought it was easier to tell people the days I have free all at once. If you would like to book yourself a Roswell, get in touch through my website or portfolio here:

______________________________________

I have a lot to blog about and am getting my thoughts in order, which will take a while… so I thought I should feature some OTHER blogs you may be interested in. And I don’t think I’ve done that before.

So…

1) Videogame people! Why not check out GameScully?
Reviewer Ryan’s life is videogames and critiquing, and he’s not afraid to publish an unpopular opinion. The site itself is still new and being updated but there are plenty of reviews there already and he takes requests! He has an effortlessly funny, rather cynical writing style and the game Fez sends him into a trance state of teary wonder.

2) If you’ve ever read any post on this blog, you probably know I’m into nature and the apocalypse, so I follow Life Out There, written by another boating nature geek in boots! If you want to hear about boat life, urbex (urban exploration) and wildlife with more fluffy chicks than naked chicks, subscribe.

3) I think beauty comes in all shapes, sizes, genders and colours, and my friend Kitty Wood’s blog is a gorgeous example of many different kinds of beauty. She’s a fantastic photographer with a wide range of models and is now reviewing plus size fashion as a beautiful (and interesting) plus size woman. She loves cute and colourful jewellery so if you like colour too, she has some great links… as well as competitions!

Kitty and I have just been featured in Cynical Fashion magazine, with a mermaid-inspired set in Yummy Gummy latex (who sponsors me). I’m waiting for the tearsheets to do a proper blog but here’s a teaser… ;)

That’s all for now folks!

International

22 May

I’m back! I had one of the best weekends ever in Berlin and it reminded me how glad I feel to have friends all over the world that I’d never have known if not for my modelling work. <3 I’ll post a proper update later but just wanted to share some photos with you now.

Here I am walking for Ardita Fetish Fashion, with a sneak peek from the back of the camera during my shoot with Belinda Bartzner. I am so tempted to buy this dress. <3

And I couldn’t *not* show you this shot of the gorgeous designer Barbara, wearing more of her designs. You can just see me on the right. :D

Though I didn’t get the “Fetish Model of the Year” Award this time (well done though to Sinteque, who did), my sponsor Yummy Gummy latex won “Best International Startup Company”. I’m so proud of her- she’s my latex scientist (I refer to her studio as The Lab) and can’t wait to see what she does next.
Have another sneak preview- I’m wearing my custom-made Yummy Gummy bodysuit and Pandora Deluxe harness.

As I can’t be everywhere at once, sadly, I missed an exhibition I featured in, but can now show you the photos! Photographer Kirsten Thys Van Den Audenaerde shot a project focusing on portraying various fetishes from ponygirl and heavy rubber to bondage and ballet boots. Mine was leather and everything I’m wearing here is from my own wardrobe. ;)

So what next? I’m leaving for Ireland on Monday for a week, with an awesome nude shoot in a castle, a sold-out studio day and one day off for wildlife spotting. Irish people, if you know of anywhere near Dublin or Cork that is slightly derelict and/or reclaimed by nature, please let me know.

June is scheduled for some downtime, as this month has been so crazy that I’ve been away from home more nights than I’ve spent in my own bed. I want to get my bathroom looking the way I want it (Cthulhu themed, aqua blue, black and white with a bit of gold) and spend some more time on the roof reading. :)

I may be investing some money into a couple of gorgeous brightly coloured latex catsuits- very exciting, especially for you shiny fashion fans who should be following my facebook- there will be MANY more shiny pictures coming. https://www.facebook.com/pages/Roswell-Ivory-model-and-writer/152654844767588

Also, please keep voting! I’m around place 30 and need to be in the top 12 to win another latex catsuit! You can vote EVERY 24 HOURS, remember? http://www.latex.at:80/en/all-models-voting/?id=187
Thankyou. <3

Speak to you soon- I’ll blog again before I leave.

And

Travelling Light…

12 May

Berlin, here I come! I’m off again for a few days celebrating German Fetish Weekend with my ‘industry family’. It’s one of the only chances I get to see people all together as we all live in different countries. (The other time is Dominatrix, in Holland).
I haven’t been for years but have always had a good time… and always seem to model in pink! I’m walking in the show for Ardita Fetish Fashion so am looking forward to seeing what she’s made for me. Maybe she’ll break the ‘pink streak’? ;)
I also just heard the lovely news- thankyou so much to all my fans and voters, I am shortlisted for the award of Fetish Model of the Year 2015!

Left: My first GFB, walking for HMSlatex. I’m at 5:10 and 7:02  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9WI5R93o50k
Right: Walking for Am Statik, with Luna Eve. We’re at 2:57  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZgFVwlM3MiY

For possibly the first time ever, I’m just going to have fun- I haven’t booked any work so that I have total freedom to explore, party and picnic in the Tiergarten (with the resident goshawks, fingers crossed!) This means I’m not dragging the 30kg purple suitcase of doom- hoorah!

I’ve only had a home for just under a year. Before I moved onto my boat, I lived on friends floors, in hostels and the occasional hotel- which I thought was going to be a dream come true! I’m good at travelling, used to sleeping on airport floors and very resourceful. Oh, and I love adventures. The idea of a nomadic lifestyle while enjoying a creative job sounded amazing (and still does if you haven’t factored certain things in…) What hadn’t occured to me was the baggage I’d be taking along. Modelling is my full time job, so I almost always have the purple suitcase of doom attached to my right hand.
There is a huge difference between backpacking all over the world with total freedom to travel and the occasional paying job to keep you going, and constantly moving from hostel to hostel carrying baggage that must not go astray. That heavy weight on my body began to feel like mental weight too and I was sick of it all very quickly. Now, I’m making time to travel without restrictons and excess baggage, so am taking my favoutite latex, some snacks… and that’s it.
I’m also going to Switzerland in July and staying in a hippy/artist commune between shoots. <3

In a total contrast- earlier this year, I shot with Luci-Alice in a gorgeous hotel. I think I look like a fashionable Bond villain here- it seems to be a common theme with me, lol! :D

I’m modelling Kaori’s Latex Dreams and just LOVE the shoulders on the top!

I have a monster to-do list today and would like to get it all done before sunset so I’m going to sign off now. ;) Thankyou again for your sheer awesomeness.
If you’d like to continue supporting me, please pretty please keep voting for me- I’d love to win a latex catsuit!
Just follow the link and very quick instructions: http://www.latex.at/en/all-models-voting/?id=187

Much love,

Golden Fire

2 May

How fitting that I should choose this title just as the “golden crown scene” in Game of Thrones came on! (If you haven’t seen it, a whingy annoying man gets the crown he wants in the form of molten gold poured on his head. :P
Here’s a behind-the-scenes of me wearing a much nicer crown I made myself:
WP_20140216_005
It was Beltane yesterday and I have spent most of the last few days with friends and cake, exploring the outdoors. The name means “bright fire” and it’s a pagan festival a bit like Valentine’s Day in the sense that couples can pledge to each other and celebrate the union between the green man and goddess (blossom and thorns, male and female entities etc). You can read a bit about the festival here, if you’re interested. Next year, you’d find me bouncing around the enormous fire in Glastonbury with any friends who want to come.
If you can’t wait that long and would like to see me dancing around some standing stones, why not look at the rest of this Zivity set, called “Neolithic”?
The photographer is Andrew Shiels and the pictures were taken in Ireland.
You just need to click here and if you aren’t a member, it’s only about $3 to see the whole set- hooray! :)

Today is apparently Naked Gardening Day! Seriously, I’m not joking. As the sky is grey and very unappetising, I don’t think I’ll go out and prune the roses. Also, I don’t have roses. Or a garden. :P I do have a photo of me naked in a garden though.

PHOTOGRAPHERS: 
I’m planning my travel this year and am going to be all over the place- visiting some countries for the first time ever!
My travel plans are on my portfolio here: http://purpleport.com/portfolio/roswellivory but here are some future plans. If you’ve like to be kept updated, get in touch ASAP as I plan my travel several months in advance and book up quickly!
July: Scotland, then Switzerland (almost fully booked but get in contact to be updated about a possible Autumn trip)
August: Scandinavia tour: Denmark, Sweden, Norway
September: South Coast and Isle of Wight visit

I’ve only shared one or two of these photos so far, but I’ve had this set back from KinkyStyle, in a stunning designer apartment in Belgium. My beautiful gold dress is by Yummy Gummy and if you like these, you’ll LOVE our next photoshoot.

I’m off to prepare for another photoshoot tomorrow with Luci Alice, and a beautiful Croatian model friend- and to continue with a new writing project.

Take care and have fun, whatever you are doing today!

P.S. Sadly, due to cheating(!) the votes for all models in the latex catsuit competition have been set back to zero. This means all the votes you kindly collected for me are gone. :(
Could you please take the time to vote for me again? It only takes a minute and I’d really appreciate the suppprt. Thankyou so much. <3

A Day Off…

27 Apr

I’ve had a day off today-  a proper one and my first in ages!! :D

I started by finishing my book in bed (The Wind in the Willows), then explored an area of the riverside I’d never seen before and found some very interesting things in the water! I hate taking my phone with me but it is a necessity for documenting my wildlife findings. :)
A date with three lovely men later (Ben, Jerry and ‘Constantine’) and I spent the rest of the afternoon cooking and making props for tomorrow’s shoot with the lovely Emma-Jane. You may have already seen some of our work together:
r10

I just had to update you all with the latest, as I’m mostly going offline for the next few days in order to shoot and submit an entry to a very exciting writing competition- the prize for which is a trip to Antarctica! Wish me luck please. ;)

Talking of luck, the competition I entered to win a latex catsuit has been reset. Apparently some models were cheating!!! Horrid, I know, so the judges decided it was best to reset everyone back to zero. Could you please take the time to vote again? The instructions are below:
1) Go to this link: http://www.latex.at/en/all-models-voting/?id=187
2) Click “vote for this model”.
3) Enter your email (which will NOT be used for promotion or advertising messages)
4) Log into your email and click the confirming link.
5) Accept my thanks for your support. :)

As it’s an early start tomorrow, I’m going to log off, jump in the shower and curl up in bed, leaving you with these beautiful pictures from photographer Eleanor Marie. Long rust-coloured dress by Falcieri. Black girdle dress by Playful Promises.

Did I mention she’s also a model? :)

Goodnight, everyone! I hope you all have a great week, whatever you are doing.
