I love all these beautiful gothic fashions you get to shoot :) I wish I got asked to model more stuff like this. Though I guess my short hair wouldn't work so well :)

I think most of the gothic fashions I shoot come from ~RetroscopeFashions, so it might *seem* like a goodly amount, but it's really just a lot of work with one designer's stuff.
Besides, you've shot in Mother of London's clothing; I will forever envy you that, ehehe.

Oy, and there's always hair extensions, no? :P

wow i just can't get by how gorgeous your photographs are. Do you just choose random words and pose based off the description? it's all so amazing. I'm looking forward to any new photographs of you coming out. Keep up the great work!

Amazing photo!
I love how the title/theme of this photo refers to the dark concepts of the Seelie and Unseelie Courts of fairy tales. Though the Seelie court was refered to as the 'milder' of the two courts, they were still considered 'evil' in their own way. I really like how you captured that in this photo by having the gates be bright and inviting, while you're dressed in all balck and have a haunting sort of beauty.

I really love this photo. :)
(I'm a big Holly Black fan, too)

Stunning and mesmerizing, abstract enough to be alluring interpretable, but not so much that it goes over the viewer's head. Great work!

By the way, not to be creepy or anything, but you're very pretty. ^_^

I can't really describe what it is, but there's something about this picture that I -adore- beyond the outfit and the set. The lighting, perhaps, is what makes it so easy to look at. :33

You are just absolutely gorgeous. The only way I can think to describe your face is almost as if it's been drawn... it's almost asian... very dollike. In short, I'm incredibly jealous. :) Haha. ANYHOO this is a gorgeous pic, I found your gallery through your recent DD and the whole of it is absolutely stunning! :) Keep it up!

Thank you! :aww: I can somewhat see what you're saying about the 'drawn' effect on the right image- it's due to really flat frontal lighting that forms few shadows (hence the nigh-dissapearing nose :P)
