Photoshoot “Lisa”

Back in the end of March or beginning of April, Wouter and I worked together for another photoshoot. This time, we had a model that Wouter brought in, Lisa.

We planned things a little bit last minute and since I have a lot going on with work etc., I wasn’t able to prepare and plan a lot involving the makeup. What I knew was that Lisa wanted some normal photos without the crazy makeup, and after that Wouter wanted to do something with rigid collodion.

That’s what we did! The makeup changed and was added during the shoot, we really used the try-error-change something-try again- method.

Photographer/retoucher: Wouter Oud

Sidenote, it was definitely about time that I downloaded all the retouched material and upload something on this blog.. The delay? Don’t even remember..

Anyway, this has been added to my portfolio. All other fun had been recorded through Instarainbow *click*, because I have actually captured snapshots of what I did lately. The official publications on here are coming soon. Not promising anything ofcourse 😉

Love,

Painting progress May + updates

Hi everyone!

Sorry for the silence.. I know it’s terrible..
As usual though, I have worked on things.. They’re just not finished yet. The main reason for my lack of posting this month is the following:
My laptop screen has a huge crack in it, it’s been there for 2 months now. I’ve found a person who is going to fix it, but the screen is a special type (apparently?) and now it takes weeks to get a new one. Now I try to use my laptop as little as possible because it’s really annoying, plus I haven’t saved any photos on the laptop, because otherwise I have to make yet another backup which takes a lot of time. So, I still have all photos on my card and simply forget to upload them…

Firstoff: the painting on the wall. There’s some more detail in it, I gave life to the castle in the clearing, the path has more definition, just all over more definition..

Second: I was crocheting another scarf with the broomstick stitch, same as the red one I did last year. It’s not finished yet.

Third: For the painting that is shown above, I made a model of the castle that is in the clearing.. Like, a crafted model with my materials from back in the day when I was still an architecture student instead of constructive engineer?
I present to you, a scale model of the Castle of Hogwarts:

The model was something I’ve been wanting to do for quite a while, I researched all the places within the castle once, I had maps of all the floors, it’s crazy really.. But, yes, I love Harry Potter and I believe the magic never ends. You should check out this song! I know, off topic, but it’s cool! There’s quite some names missing though, haha (:
So, after I finished drawing and painting the little castle on the wall, I had no purpose for the model.
No, there’s not going to be some contest to win this thing. I already gave it away, to a friend who’s even a bigger fan of the whole world of magic then I am (Hi Andrew!) and I am 100% sure the model is in good hands with him 🙂

Fourth: Sure everyone remembers this guy! :

This is my most viewed post, which is wonderful, and now it will get an expansion! Whoohooo! I told you last time that I was working on something big, well, that would be a COMPLETE COSTUME to go with this pretty cloak. It’s almost done, I’m still working on a very detailed embroidery and after that I want to create an actual pattern for you guys! Which will take us to the next update:

My wrist. I had an inflammation in the joint. Is that how you call this in English? Not sure. But I hope you understand. In Dutch it’s: ontstoken polsgewricht.
This happened out of nowhere, it’s quite annoying. The fact that I had a mountain of homework and studying to do did not ease my mind about this.
And so, I agreed that I should probably give everything a break. No crocheting, knitting, anything that might do more damage. I have to use my arm a lot for school already, so, yes, this really sucks. Now, at night, while watching TV or something, I have nothing to DO! Fellow crocheters and knitters will know 😛
Luckily there’s only a few more weeks of school left, I’ve got 2 more projects which are not individual, meaning more work during the week and less during weekends (:

But there’s always something to brighten my days! In just a few weeks I will be walking around at IMATS LONDON!!!! Finally!! Counting days here.. I haven’t made a complete wish list yet, so if you have any suggestions, feel free to tell me! One thing’s for sure: my #1 stop is at Sugarpill. Oh, happy day 🙂

Love,

-M.

PS: I read ‘The Silmarillion”. I feel like Galadriel, knowing everything. It was great (:
