Hello everyone. I am truly sorry for the long pause in blogging. I have been working on my thesis and a few other projects and those have consumed pretty much all my time. I think even Mr. Wolf misses my presence a bit, since staring at the screen and constantly working isn't very social or attentive... So please, forgive my absence. Tomorrow I will start my Christmas holiday and hopefully I will find more time for blogging during my break. At least today I made a new layout, yaaay. :3
Anyway, the real reason for posting tonight is that I will be making some changes considering this blog. It makes me really sad that every time I think about this blog the first thing that comes to mind is: "Damn I haven't updated in ages!!" One of the reasons is that usually it takes me easily an hour to write a post, since I have been using two languages. I have thought about this long and hard and decided that from now on I will only post in English. It's a hard choice but most of you understand English well enough, since mine isn't that complicated. However, if you have questions, comments or what ever you are most welcome to post in Finnish and I will also answer in Finnish. I apologize for this decision for those who don't read English well, but this blog is supposed to be enjoyment for me, not a burden. Thank you for understanding. ♥
To cheer you up, however, I will finally post some of the Zombie Pin-Up pictures and also babble a little about the project in general. :) So the story goes that last spring some people from my school were looking for models for a zombie pin-up calendar. Naturally I applied and I was welcomed aboard. My photo shoot was the very first one and it took place deep in the countryside, in some shed with actual living sheep baaaaaing right next to me. :D I was supposed to be a victim of some zombie virus, dumped in some ditch in a black garbage back, haha! So I made my outfit with some garbage bags and one of the photographers, Minna Koivumaa made me this amazing zombie make-up! The shoot itself went very well, but the weather was awful and really cold and I got very sick afterwards.
After are the shoots were done we had an after party for this project and I befriended many of the models. Quite many of us were also interested in burlesque, so we decided to form our own little burlesque group! Our group is called: Madam Hardware and the Kinky Carnival and just a little while ago we actually had our first show! We are currently planning on another one, hopefully it will take place in January. But now, time for pictures (all of them shot by Minna Koivumaa and Katariina Ruotsalainen, Photoshopped by me).
