ON THE COVER OF PRYSM MAGAZINE, WITH DIR EN GREY! JROCK BANDS & JAPANESE GOTH FASHION, HAIR & KAWAII MAKEUP.
Jump for joy. I’m on the cover of Prysm Magazine! The magazine’s logo is “Where Darkness Meets Decadence,” so it’s quite an honor.
The Summer 2012 issue is called Prysm Loves Japan, and has two covers — one with yours truly, and one with Jrock band Dir en Grey. (Remember Rose’s controversial review of their Seattle concert?)
This issue also features Visual Kei bands Blood and Gothika, and Tokidoki creator Simone Legno. Intrigued? Pick up a digital or print copy of Prysm, with La Carmina on the cover. You can also see previews on their Facebook page.
We took these fun photos last December in Vancouver, Canada. Jack attack!
Seby heats up the studio in latex and leather.
The white aristocrat shirt and skintight latex pants (!!) were provided by Deadly Couture in Vancouver. They’re the best boutique in town for Goth, fetish and alternative wear. (Remember my store tour of Deadly?)
Love these “nyan nyan” photos with Rose.
Rose wears a HellCatPunks tank top. La Carmina wears…
Purple dress: Algonquins Tokyo
Fishnet jacket: Candy Stripper, from Closet Child Tokyo
Necklaces and bracelets: gifted by Fashionology.nl
Black booties: Michael Kors (similar to these Kors shoes)
This week, I’m shooting for yet another magazine cover… any guesses?
In other news, I delivered on my promise to turn your Go With Oh drawings into an art piece.
I printed out all the contest submissions and stuck them on a canvas, which will hang on my wall. Thank you again for your work! You can following along my Spooky Europe travels here.
Thanks also to Eye For Sunglasses, who sent me a selection of fun shades. I did a quick DIY project with these cat-eye frames — glittered them up with nail polish and gem stickers.
PS: my friends Shien Lee and Zoetica Ebb launched a Kickstarter for The Secret Guide to Alternative Beijing. Part documentary, part travel guide, their aim is to document the amazing cultural renaissance taking place right now in Beijing. Be part of it and lend them support here.
I leave you with recent “lacarmina” Instagram photos of my Scottish Fold maoo.
How do you like my cover photoshoot for Prysm Magazine? Have you done any DIY projects lately?
