Lisa Black Project - Nokia Gaming

I don't get to take credit for this one, it's more of a collaboration of sorts. You may remember an earlier post mentioning work I was doing for Lisa Black (the taxidermy artist), well the results of that are now up on line. The Campaign was for Nokia, sort of a tribute to the hands of gaming. Take a look:-

Hooded Character 

 Satyr Character 

Lisa had me make 3 character costumes for this project (x1 of them, which is my favorite has yet to be seen so I'll leave that one out for now).

The Satyr Character from my end just before it was sent away......

 And you can see here how Lisa adds her own special brand of clever, bringing the character to life:-

With the final results:-

And the Hooded Character.....

You can see Lisa's additions and the final results here:-

 **All in all is was a lovely experience working under Lisa's Creative Direction and I'm very proud  to have been involved. I also think Lisa is one very talented lady and am glad she trusted in my abilities enough to bring me on board for this project :)

Posture Collar

Thought I'd share pictures of my recently completed PVC & Lace Posture Collar, made to match one of the corsets for the photo shoot I mentioned in the previous post (everything is coming along nicely by the way).

Working it through......

I'm busy working on orders again (a few to catch up on before I can start the next batch), plus trying to get other projects finished up and ready for my next photo shoot. So there should be plenty of posting over the next few weeks as various items come to completion *(as long as I can keep up with the busy)  :)

Recent Customer Order:-
This order was a bit on the tricky side, my customer has recently given birth to twins, so of course her body is not quiet the standard shape or size I'm use to dealing with. But since a corset is just the thing for extra curves, offering support and withdrawing inches it definitely deserved the challenge.

Initially  my customer wanted the  'Basic Curvy' style which though very shapely, is unfortunately not suited to waist sizes exceeding 28- 30", it is designed as a cheaper light option containing minimal panels and bone placement (more suited to S - M standard sizes).  Being that I had purchased the King and Company pattern not long before, and it offered more bone placement  I decided to use that as my base. With the adaptions added and a mock up made (some tinkering done at this point) I was  able to move ahead with my usual process.

And the results:-

It was an after thought but thought I should add a pic on the dolly - it really needs figure to show the shape :)
