A Beautiful Disaster

For those people that know me personally will know this little project was really special to me. It features a collaboration between myself and artist Defective Alien. We call the collaboration…

‘A Beautiful Disaster’

 

As an artist, Defective Alien mainly creates striking wheat paste street art but she also makes mixed media collages of which I have captured part of here in the form of fabric for my corsetry! I hope you like them! We absolutely love them!

Here are a few other of her works of which I have not got around to making with yet. Please let me know if you would like a corset making with any of these!

I have got pretty much free reign on the Defective Alien Art so please go check out her other work on Instagram.

Both the corset and cincher are now available to order in the shop!

These two samples will be listed on my Etsy store later. Let me know if you would like a custom corset making!

PlasticBob met Nico in a smoke filled bar in Berlin and took her back to his playbob mansion. Beautiful but distant, she speaks little of her hazy past but looking deep into her eyes you can see reflections of another world.

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.

The Sizing Guide will help with sizing issues and made to measure instructions.  Also be sure to check out the Construction & Care page. All prints and embellishments are created in house so you will not find them anywhere else. If you would like me to design a print embellishment for you please feel free to contact me.
