This week I have another lovely photoset for you from my shoot with Gloomth & The Cult of the Melancholy! This time I am donning the “Vintage Toys” skater dress. The incredible prints used in these dresses were designed by Gloomth’s Taeden Hall from a composite of her own found objects. I am so blown away by the creativity she brings to Gloomth through her designs, drawings, and photography. Taeden is truly a multitalented creator with an unending supply of twisted ideas and it’s always such a joy to work with her!
Happy October and Happy (almost) Halloween!!
I’ve been a busy bee for the past few months doing lots of shoots, both in front of and behind the camera, and I’m ready to get back to posting regularly here at Classically Curvy!
To start off, I had a lovely time modelling for the alternative fashion brand Gloomth & The Cult of the Melancholy in a few of their classic skater style dresses. The first look was this whimsical “Doll Hospital” dress. We were lucky enough to find the perfect setting in front of an out of commission ambulance to shoot this look.
It’s summer in the city and boy is it hot! Luckily I’ve got my trusty fan and a fabulous collection of clothing from Primaala to keep me looking and feeling cool. Primaala caters to a high-end, modern, plus size fashionista clientele. Their designs are sleek and sophisticated with clean lines and rich fabrics. I had the pleasure of shooting this amazing selection of outfits with the help of the Fashion Canadiana herself, Vanessa Petey. Vanessa is a fashion blogger with a focus on Canadian made clothing who has been exploring all facets of the fashion industry including a focus on Plus Size Fashion. Vanessa introduced me to two amazing women, Rachel Holt, the woman behind this fantastic plus size store/clothing line and Yuli Scheidt, curvy goddess and photographer extraordinaire. I had a lovely time working with these incredible women and am so happy to share the final results!

As an avid wearer of corsets I was thrilled to have the opportunity to model for the company Love, Poetry Corsets. Their unique designs come in a beautiful array of fabrics and their shapes hug the body and flatter the figure. I got to model this steampunk inspired, overbust corset with a sweetheart neckline and back lacing.
My amazingly multitalented friend Poisonne has recently exploded the internet with her awesome collection of scale jewelry and clothing called Scaille Maille. These stunning creations are like dragon skin that has been skillfully tailored to the human form. With necklaces, gauntlets, bras, harnesses and even neck ties in her collection there is something in any style for the adventurous warrior in us all! Each piece is custom made to the size and colour you desire, with many beautiful colours to choose from including my favourites pink and the very mermaidy turqoise. Prices range from $68 to $90 for the smaller pieces and $160 to $900 for the larger more elaborate work. Well worth the money when you see the quality of craftsmanship and unique beauty in each item. I really can’t say enough good things about Poisonne’s work and I highly recommend you check out her etsy shop and snag some of these killer pieces for yourself!
