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!) πŸ˜€ I just read that as ‘man-eater’, I’m not a man eater either. πŸ˜› 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:

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… πŸ˜›

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… πŸ˜‰
Here are just some of the places I’ve been:

    Mmm, post-rock-apocalyptic leather…. My compliments to the tailor! πŸ˜‰

    As for what I said about small businesses struggling under the burden of paying for the Maternity pay and The Temp at the same time I seem to remember Labour Party talk about tax breaks for SME’s to help them cover this ( both for maternity and paternity pay ). If that comes in then there will be nowhere for the Old Boys to hide. They won’t be able to stuff women over ( as they won’t know who is gonna take the leave; a male employee or a female employee ).

    As for being a man-eater you’ll find that men like being eaten on occasion. As long as it’s fun, naturally. Considering how many men out there are flirt-blind jumping on us on occasion is a good way to remind us that we are still desirable.

    Simple psychology there. If you like the bloke hit him over the head with a stick and drag him back to your cave. Don’t be afraid on that one babe. The blokey will see it as a compliment πŸ˜‰

    Yes, more Leather. I don’t do plastic; it’s too flimsy :p

    My favourite, smartest model. You look better every shoot. Have a wonderful time.

    Really like the post-apocalyptic shot, when I went to vote on you I couldn’t even get to your picture because it kept showing me models I had already voted on, 😦

      Thankyou! πŸ™‚

      I know- it’s a bit of a nightmare- you have to keep cycling through until you reach me sadly! Tres frustrating! πŸ˜›

    Just listened to your radio interview – very cool indeed!! It just goes to show that you are as eloquent and articulate on the radio as you are here!! πŸ™‚ Keep up the good work – and don’t forget to come down to Middle Earth aka Wellington New Zealand sometime soon too πŸ™‚

    Your horse drawing is wonderful, I didn’t realise that you are also a talented artist! A truly beautiful drawing.

    • roswellivory November 11, 2014 at 8:15 pm #

      That is so kind of you- thankyou! πŸ™‚
      If you know anyone in need of a drawing, send them my way- I certainly have a few spare days for Christmas commissions. πŸ™‚

    I listened to your radio interview (and Marilyn Manson after you) and I know it’s always the way but I somehow didn’t expect you to sound like that. You do have a very nice voice though and you came over very well. So keep it up, more radio!

      Lol!! Thanks for listening. I understand that- for some reason I always expect Dita von Teese To sound English- I guess we read things in our own accent. πŸ™‚

      I’ll do my very best- I know I’m interviewing people for some upcoming videos so stay tuned.
