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!
2015 has been a year of new ventures and creative exploration for me. Launching Dolly Shots has been such a wonderful way for me to explore portrait photography and share my passion with the help of my beautiful friends who have modeled for me. While I know that I still have so much to learn I am happy with the images I have been able to put out so far. Happier still to see how much joy it brings my models when they receive their finished photos!
Recently I decided to take my creative vision to the next level and organize a photoshoot with a specific theme that has always captivated me. I gathered some gorgeous gals who also wanted to explore this theme and over the next few months you will see the fruits of this labour.
Bringing together a 1960s aesthetic, Russ Meyer influence and playful whimsy with a splash of vodka, I would like to present my Valley of the Dolly Shots Gals. Stay tuned in 2016 for more photos of these buxom bombshells…
I am so excited to share another lovely set of photos from Tyrone Islington! We were going for a very 60s babydoll look with the styling and wardrobe for this shoot. This is one of my favourite outfits, which I have featured on here before, but I just can’t get enough photos of it. I designed and created this little pink playsuit with fabric I got at Mood in NYC. Please enjoy this sweet little set of pictures from Dolly and Tyrone!
A couple years ago my gorgeous friend Gen asked me to make a Babydoll cosplay to wear at Toronto Comicon. Instead of her battle outfit which is the most commonly cosplayed look of hers, Gen wanted her institution outfit that she wears when she’s not in her fantasy land. I absolutely loved making this dress! It has a cute, sailor style collar and side pleating on the skirt. It buttons up and has a long exaggerated tie. Gen totally rocked this look and I love the way it fits her!
