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.

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!

Top 10 Reasons to Shop with Gore Couture

Top 10 Reasons to Shop with Gore Couture

  1. Jason Voorhees’s mask might be iconic, but ultimately does nothing for your cleavage. Our pieces deliver on both fronts.
  2. Spikes on the hips make for excellent creeper repellent.
  3. We take the motto “All killer, no filler” deadly serious around here. All top notch quality steel boning, all the time. Our corsets don’t wrinkle, stretch, or give you a weird bulge when you sit down.
  4. When you call upon fallen angels clad in our All Seeing Eye Lucifer Underbust Steel Corset, they actually show up.
  5. Five words: Full Made to Measure Service. Because ill-fitting garments are the stuff of nightmares, we’ll go to hell and back to ensure you get the beautiful silhouette you deserve.
  6. Doll heads, Baphomet sigils, and inverted crosses are only the beginning. Dream of a creation so drenched in evil that you fear no designer will dare bring it to life? Show us what you got! We’d be delighted to help you unleash some custom made couture on the unsuspecting masses.
  7. They say the devil is in the details and we agree, which explains the obsessive devotion we exhibit when painting & sculpting dead dolly embellishments as well as hand-printing blasphemous patterns.
  8. If cannibalism figures prominently into your mating rituals, our Webs of Deceit underbust will assist you in dressing up for the occasion.
  9. Statistics don’t lie: It’s highly improbable to have a bad day when hit with a Glitter Bomb.
  10. Feeling a bit like Buffalo Bill? Lace yourself into a Death’s Head Moth Underbust, crank up “Goodbye Horses”, and indulge in a pants optional dance party.
