Confessions of a Serial Killer

I created this design back in 2010 for a very limited run. I  wasn’t really happy with the printing method or the fabric I was limited to so I made it unavailable. The print has now been perfected onto cotton so it is available again!

I had this idea to create the character of Amelia the Serial Killer. Locked away in the confines of the Asylum she shares with you her personal diary. This is all captured in the fabric of the corset. Gruesome bloody, torn and burnt pages of the Diary and the eyelids of her victims of which she keeps as trophies.

Working together with the beautiful Minty playing the part of Amelia, she manages to portray the innocent but deadly killer perfectly. Captured on film by Katelizabeth. I absolutely LOVED this shoot. It’s not just about the corset.

You can purchase this corset here or on my etsy store. Standard sizing or made to measure!

 

Word on the street is that Amelia escaped the Asylum and could be up to her old tricks again…..

Clone Stars

Sorry for the delay in new designs and ramblings! I’ve been super busy! So here goes….

I wanted to do a photoshoot with Colin from Technoir Photography for quite some time and was trying to set up a date so we could combine it with a drink and catch up afterward. I had recently met up with long lost friend Tracy which was absolutely delightful and she agreed to model for us just like old times for Armory! It was my birthday coming up and with my dear friend Anastasija aka Anastasija Potjomkina the RottenZombieFairy coming  from London I asked her if she wanted to use her crazy good make-up skills and join the colab! YES! Perfect birthday weekend sorted! As always with GC shoots, it isn’t just about the corsets but more of a social thing. Good friends coming together to create…. and more importantly party afterward. The Honey JD did flow quite nicely thank you Ana….. And birthday cake. Lots of birthday cake. I was spoilt rotten. Literally – Rotten.

I’ve not made a blog post for quite some time now as I’ve been super busy creating gorgousness for my lovely clients. I have however been drafting some new patterns, one being an underbust corset and the other an overbust corset. This new draft is called ‘Alice’ and is more curvy than all of my other corsets. It also allows for more room around the ribs unlike my more popular conical styles. Alice is now available to order in both the Clone Stars Overbust and Clone Stars Underbust designs! Check them out in the shop! Let me know if you want the ‘Alice’ draft making with a custom print design, I print all my own fabrics so quite a lot of scope is possible! Please take a look at the Styles and Fabrics page for more ideas and information. I have a new print colour available of which you can see on the Clone Stars Underbust corset pictures, it is opalescent and changes colour depending on which angle you look at it. Absolutely stunning!

For the shoot I wanted to create a strange ‘clone’ theme to it. I think everyone did a great job. Anastasija did a fantastic job of the make-up and Colin made the final images perfect. Considering we were struggling to get a studio and ended up turning my bathroom into a lab, I think we did brilliant! I can see this team getting together more often in future!

A big thank-you to everyone involved, for the hard work. If you need a make-up artist or photographer for your project check out the links below I cannot recommend them enough. A MASSIVE thank-you also goes to our loves Erin-Jay and Sarah for keeping us sane on the day and keeping us in supplies AND birthday cake! <3

Of Queens & Hexes

The first corset I created for the wonderful Noizmare to model was the Hexagram Cincher.

As it was a collaboration I let her pick the silk and the print design. As all my designs are customisable, this tiny piece can be made with a different print design or symbol. I like to go and hand pick the silk from my supplier, having so many colours to choose from makes life a bit difficult and I always end up buying much more than I actually need. Mila – model name Noizmare picked this beautiful lilac shot silk dupion.

This little cincher has proved to be a popular design in the past. The front and back of the cincher measures just 7 inches with a tiny 4.5 inches at the sides, it makes it quite a versatile piece whilst still cinching that waist! I added tiny black spikes to match the hand finished black silk edging and trims.

 

 

The next corset I created for Noizmare was The Hive Queen Anthracite. I really enjoyed making this for Mila, I love her classic gothic look with just the right amount of evil to each picture capturing exactly what I wanted for this Evil Queen.

This beautiful underbust corset is made of Satin Coutil with each panel individually hand printed with a hive design.

It also features external trim with black spikes and side panniers of tulle falling to calf length. I also used a gorgeous black busk to keep the piece very dark and gothic.

This print design was actually created for a t-shirt design I had done a few weeks ealier. I loved it so much and wanted to make a corset using it.

 

Glen from 13th Life Photography created all the beautiful photos for Noizmare and GC. He did an amazing job capturing a majestic charm but still in keeping with the evil twist that was in the brief. I would very much like to work with both Noizmare and 13th Life Photography in the future, I already have a few ideas for which I think they would be perfect for. A great big thank-you to both Mila and Glen!

Iridescence

I created these corsets using a beautiful iridescent hologram print. Although I’m not known for making many ‘pretty’ corsets, even my blackened heart can’t resist the beautiful colours it creates. This kind of fashion statement has been around for so long now I don’t think it will ever get boring. I was very happy when I figured out I could work it into my pieces.

I made Cold Blooded for the beautiful Evilyn Frantic, I have wanted to work with her for so long! I included matching pasties. Each cotton coutil panel is printed with iridescent scales. This shape is the ‘Demon’ underbust style but can be made in any other of my styles.

Close up shots showing the print & embellishment detail.

Underwater Love was made for wonderful Miss Polli along with a matching neck corset. Again, each coutil panel is carefully printed with my design of seaweed and jelly fish. I also added beautiful iridescent spikes to finish this piece. It is quite majestic! Made in the ‘Lady Killer’ style for Miss Polli but like Cold Blooded it can be made in any other style.

Baphomet, The Beast and The Beauty.

It started when I was chatting to a girl on line about septum piercings. We were both at the 4mm stretch so we shared the pain and had a laugh about it. The girl I was chatting to was Alex who also goes by the model name of Kathy Alexa. Alex said she liked the Baphomet corset of mine. So I said well, do you want to come over and model it and I’ll put some spikes on it as I’d planned?  She said – oh alright then! Quite glad she did!

 

Then I got a text from an old friend Dan with a picture of his new build. A Harley Davidson with a 1450 twin cam B fitted up to a Baker RSD 6 speed gearbox. Full build and fabrication by Dan himself. Fantastic! So I got to thinking maybe we could have a shoot with The Corset, The Bike and Alex. We had not seen Dan and his partner Tracey in ages, travelled half way round the world with them once upon a time so thought this would be a nice little get together. Dan agreed. Quite glad he did!

Another reason for this was for me to have a bit of a practice with my camera. Over the last 15+ years or so I’ve been the model, the make-up artist, the director and the designer. Time to pick up my camera….. perfect opportunity – I adore bikes, I was surrounded by them in a past life. I could do the shoot and feel very relaxed with old friends (I sometimes get quite nervous) AND get pics of a great model wearing my stuffs! Awesome! I’m really happy with the pictures. Everyone got involved and directed in some way. Me, Erin-Jay, Dan & Tracey absolutely loved Alex, at some points we had to stop shooting because we were just crying with laughter. Then when we had finished we kicked back and had a fabulous BBQ and more laughs. Couldn’t have asked for a better day.

This was one of those times. One of those times when things come together effortlessly. One of those times that was very much needed. No months of planning, no months of stressing. Just good people coming together to make some pictures. Whether they came out brilliant or not it didn’t really matter that much. We made awesome memories.

The Spiked Baphomet Corset is available to buy here, or if you want a custom corset creating – let me know! There are a couple of Gore Couture vests up for grabs! Follow the rules on the picture to be in with a chance at winning one! on Instagram and Facebook.

Predatory

I’m not sure what she is doing on our planet but at the very least she wants a trophy to take home.

The Predatory is a three piece set, made up of corset, skirt and neck corset. Made from cotton coutil and faux leather with a decorative stitching to the front and back panels.  It has huge spikes on the hips and on the neck piece as well as faux leather fringing.  This is not available in the shop as of yet but can be made as a custom order. Feel free to contact me if you would like one making or something similar! The set in the photos could be available for hire, contact me for more details.

Halo did an amazing job of acting out each Monster and Mark of ASYLUMseventy7 did a fantastic job of bringing my vision to life.  We really enjoyed creating this shoot, a big huge thanks to all involved. This mini collection was made mainly to go along with the new website but I have lots of other designs in the pipeline so stay tuned folks!

The Screaming Banshee

Don’t let her wail at you, for you will surely die.

This Monster is clad in the Silk Banshee cincher and accessories. I wanted to create a version of this new style cincher with a simple print on silk. The texture of the silk dupion is stunning, even with the print on it you can still see and feel all it’s tiny imperfections. For me that is what makes it beautiful and my favourite fabric to work with. You can find this now in the Shop or if you would like a custom print of your own designing on silk Contact Me!

Jade of Ferox Clothing made the gorgeous Hooded Top especially for the shoot. Made from the same silk with black lining and faux fur around the hood.  Please go check out her work which massively promotes cruelty free, animal inspired fabrics! A big thanks to Jade for also helping out at the photoshoot and enjoying our Marilyn Manson indulgences.

Black Widow

The first of the Monsters has arrived to wreak havoc on us all.  She is the Black Widow!

I’ve been making latex clothing for quite sometime now so I thought it was about time to add some to my collection. This particular one was inspired by the crazy Spider Lady Lei-iisa.  You can find the Black Widow to buy in the Shop or if you want this or any custom latex corset making then contact me! I specialise in appliqué work.

A massive thanks to Maja Stina for the loan of the latex catsuit. You can find her latex creations at http://maja-stina.com/ You can also find her in the Galleries modelling other corsets that I have made for her.

More Monsters to follow so stay tuned folks!
