The Blues of Ms. Vondasblut

November 29, 2012 Posted by rissvandal

Ugh, major technical difficulties lately, so I apologize for the lack of blog posts in the last two weeks. But my latest photoshoot, featuring the witchy, Maria Vondasblut, should make up for it.

This was a fabulous project to work on. All credit goes to Maria on this one. She showed up to my house with a sea of gorgeous black dresses and her monstrous makeup kit. While I hung out with a friend, drinking black coffee and talking about the intensity of Robert Smith, I left her to work her magic.


Working With The Dead Boys

September 3, 2012 Posted by rissvandal

Creepy kids gotta stick together, so when the dudes from dark indie band, Astorian Stigmata, asked if I could help out with a bit of photography, makeup, and filming, I was happy to lend a hand.

We did two photo shoots, and while I pitched in with some of the makeup and props, they were pretty much prepped from the start–decked out in lace top hats, special FX contacts and covered in acrylic paint and fake blood. Their style is a bit of anarchy, elegance, and….deadness, all rolled into one. (more…)

Rooney Mara x Lisbeth Salander

If you know me personally, you may have heard me talking some smack on The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo before giving it a chance. Without doing my research, I expected a cliched portrayal of a tortured “rebel,” but the film presented something with far more depth than I anticipated.

September 27, 2011 Posted by fashionvandals

Shortly after the runway show began I had two thoughts. One: I hoped to get some good shots of Autumnlin’s collection. Two: I wanted to know who those black clad people in the front row with the colored hair were, and I hoped to run into them so I could take their picture.


Model of the Week: Lady Amaranth

April 27, 2011 Posted by fashionvandals

Lady Amaranth’s look is so old-school traditional goth, and I love it. She’s quite the poster-girl for the subculture, seeing as she’s been featured in publications such as Goths, Gothic Art, and Gothic Magazine, and has modeled for Gothic Tiaras, The Gothic Shop, Drac-in-a-Box, and Dark Elegance Designs, just to name a few.

Sorry if it seems like I’m trying to overload you with the word “goth”…I just want to make sure you understand her exceptionally dark credentials. And I have to add that she’s 30-years-old, and any time I see models beyond the 19-22 age range, I get psyched. You can find out more about Lady Amaranth on her website.

Check out new styles by Heavy Red

New stuff up on the Heavy Red site. And while their stuff is totally lovely (as always), I’d certainly opt to make my own slashed and deconstructed tops, and save myself the 50 or 60 bucks…
