My masks in 'Kinky Nature' book :)

A few years ago photographer Emma Delves-Broughton used my masks 'Poison' & 'Bloodkiss' in a couple of photo shoots :) Two of the resulting photos were included in her ' Kinky Couture’ exhibition at La Galleria Pall Mall, London.

And now I'm very happy to say that a number of these pictures also appear in her recently published new book 'Kinky Nature'. I've not seen a copy yet but I'm looking forward to it :))

'Your Fantasy Costume' feature.

I want to say thank you so much to Priscilla Hernandez  for featuring my masks on 'Your Fantasy Costume'. A marvellous site for finding all you need to put together the fantasy costume of your dreams :))

Her enthusiasm and beautiful and generous words are so kind, it is a lovely review :)

Many thanks Pris and all the very best with all that you do, especially your music!

From Sea to Sky

Well it was rather nice to spend my Tuesday afternoon (18th) doing something a little different from what my job usually requires. I'd volunteered to help out on one of the many organised walks that are part of the annual Isle of Wight Walking Festival. Due to a number of unforseen circumstances I actually ended up leading the walk myself. Rather a new experience for me and a bit nerve-wracking......I mean it would be great if I'd  got everyone lost wouldn't it ;)

Anyway, thankfully it all went well and I really enjoyed myself! Very kind and patient people (who didn't even bat an eyelid when I got wee bit confused with the route ;)  A beautiful day,  perfect walking weather..... and I even got to finally see the wild goats which I've only ever seen from afar before :))

Just a few memories of a lovely afternoon.

Here be goats!
