Time for a shoot

We are on our way to Stratford to do a shoot for TomMac all wired up in video tape tapes (that sounds strange, but I'm sure it's correct) and high heels. This can be funny!

Freyagushi shoot

Yes, you heard me right! I'm gonna be a Freyagushi model while in London (together with my pretty sister - on her birthday)!
She's done a new collection of clothing and it will be so amazing to model her fantastic clothes (who have not drooled over her wonderful creations?).
Here she is, the talented Pinkindus Freyagushi:
I'm so looking foward to it. Wish me luck!

My reign will continue!!

I've been on a class meeting and I can proudly say I'm still a class-mum (together with two other nice parents)! I enjoy to be a class-mum and be part of trying to make fun for the kids and their parents. Next up is Halloween. Whiiiiiiiii :)
Here's one Christmas craft we made for the tree:
I always try to make the kids do crafts that is pretty enough so us parents can actually have it up. I hate having ugly stuff in my home, so I make them do pretty stuff that I love to show on the best spot. A real challenge! I sound like such a bitch-mum now!

I miss my blonde hair sometimes...

When I find pictures like this I really miss...
1. My pretty protégé
2. My blond hair
3. Being 7 years younger

My family July 2007

I just stumbled across a picture of my whole family from 2007. The kids were so small!!!
Synthia on the ground, I'm carrying Fairlight and my husband <3 is holding TeeBee.
Usually they do not have all black and white clothes, but on trips it's so cute when we all match eachother. This was in Gothenburg. TeeBee looks like a toad and my hair is a complete mess!

The Adorable Heart blouse...

I went to the pattern maker this morning. She already made a pattern and sew a (better) copy of my blouse. It fitted like a second skin! She did a great job!

She also helped me out on what clothes to have on my sample collection. She was so incredible helpful.
Now we have 4 full sets containing both blouse and skirt.
Time to order som fabrics I think.
She also thought I'd make a corset (waspie) for the collection.
I have thought about it before, and people have asked me, but I'm doubtfull because there are so many super-talanted corset designers out there already - how could I ever make a better one...

(Corset: Maya Hansen)
Well, the best thing about my collection is that it's only black on black.
That might be vain, but I will only make things I myself would wear on a daily basis, and I do not wear color 99% of the time.

This sucks!

As happy I was yesterday, as sad/mad I am today.
I just found out my husbands work will send him to work 7 hours away from home.
All of a sudden I will be a "widow" for the week days.
Shit! Being a single mum with 3 kids does not appeal to me.
Swim school, homeworks, playing, dinner, tuck in - all of that will be all my work now...and on top of it all I will try to start my own business with my own clothing. Not a good combo.
Hopefully it's just until Christmas.
But every second apart is one second you can never get back. What about all my hugs and kisses :(

Dear Santa,
all I want for Christmas....

First meeting with the pattern maker

Whiii - I'm so happy right now! My lovely pattern maker was here today and everything feels so fantastic! She will give my pattern for the Adorable Heart Blouse a try to see if she nails it. Of course she will! I am so looking foward to work with her.

Unfortunally the production of the blouse will be delayed (not because of her) - I thought everything was done in a jiffy, but to find the exclusive fabrics I need is still a dilemma. But I have faith that I'll sort that out before the week is done!
Kind of the fabrics seen here:

Capsized brain

The London trip the 29'th of September-4'th of October is making me flip!
All of a sudden me and my sweet sister have 3 shoots booked (all super-fun and with only talented people)...but when will we be able to shop?! But screw shopping! You will totally understand when I will tell you who we will work with later... I'm being secretive now ;)
We are also planning on attending the Torture Garden Ball the 2'nd of October. For this event, me and my sister are being sponsored with clothes from swedens finest in Latex - Naucler Design. This is of course very exiting for us! We will be "twins" so we are now figureing out how to wear our hair and do our make up in a matching way.

I want a black ass

Just been out shopping, and this is what I got at Lindex. Very nice prices too. About 7-9$. The hearts feels a bit too colorful to me, but I just couldn't leave them. I love hearts <3
Lindex Shop Online - Leggings
BUT - I have just one question - the black and white striped ones - why, oh, why, are they white on the ass?
What girl have ever wanted to see her ass look even bigger???
It's just stupid! I want a black ass ;)

Lottes video from M'era Luna :)

Here is Lottes video from this years M'era Luna! My husband is just too cute when he's pulling his socks!

I'm in my Zwart Chateau

At Zwart Chateau (the name of my sewing area) trying out different types of sleeves. On this new one I can see the puff must be shorter, the sleeve slightly wider and the cuffs are not the way they are supposed to be. So...back to the cutting table... I sometimes feel like the mices of Cinderella...
And YES! It is always a good thing to have a name for your working area. Andy Warhol had "The Factory", and I have "Zwart Chateau"! It suites me fine since I often wear a princess crown <3

Behind the scenes shoot

Me lacing in my sister in her pretty corset from last Friday. It's hard work - it's a mans job!
My black-and-white corset is so uncomfortable...I have to buy me some new.

This is from a tiny tiny test picture I got - NOT the full edited shoot.
Picture by Lazyafternoon and edit by me (I'm to the right).

Photosession in Gothenburg

Last week I had a meeting with the distributers and since I was in the area I went to Gothenburg for a photo session with my pretty sister - our first together ever! But not last I hope!
I had so much fun. Here's a sneak-peak from my camera:
Meeting up with my sister in town
