Virtual Portraits & Cabinet Cards #sendlove

WEBKrystal Victorian:ModernDSC_4387_no logo

I originally started playing with virtual photography as a way to keep my publication, Dirty Glamour Magazine running during this period of social distancing.  A magazine about glamour transformation I wanted to interview and shoot editorial from afar.  With all the world events of late, I decided I wanted to offer virtual photography to everyone. I felt everyone could benefit by reaching out through images. A lot of photographers are playing with this concept of shooting through the computer.  I wanted to be original and not copy anyone.  I have created my own style for the images. I took this project one step further, I wanted to add a personal touch. I took inspiration from vintage cabinet cards.

Cabinet cards were popular in the later 1800s, people left them with each other after visiting.  The term "cabinet" is due to the fact people displayed them in their cabinets.  For my project #sendlove, after every session, I handmake a cabinet card and mail them out for the client.  You can have a cabinet card sent to family, friends, or yourself.  It is a beautiful way of reminding others of your thinking of them.  It's a treat to receive a card in the mail even if it's a gift to yourself.

I am taking my project and offering it out to the Burlesque Hall of Fame as a fundraiser.  They are raising money to keep their museum open and hopefully present their famous Burlesque Hall of Fame Weekender. It usually runs in June but is now rescheduled to August.  For every vintage-inspired virtual session package purchased I donate the proceeds to the museum.  This is a fun way to support the museum and have a beautiful portrait as a memento.

I am hoping the #sendlove project works to add a warm sentiment to a very isolated time. This is my way of creating beauty and harmony where I can in the world.  This is an opportunity for others to #sendlove!

Pink Bunny

I found a golden egg today. It started to run away when I reached for it.  I assured the golden egg we would just hang out for the day.  I promised I wouldn't crack it. WEBGoldenEggDSC_0013 copy

I couldn't resist but share some more gorgeous glamour.

This statement necklace is handmade with vintage brooches.  The base is three strands of costume pearls.  I added a ribbon so I could wear this statement necklace long or short.  I wrap the ribbon around the metal clasp when I wear it short.  I am actually allergic to costume metals.  As a result, most of my necklaces I create have bases that are wearable against the skin. 

This one-of-a-kind necklace isn't just for a pinup's day out.  I also wear this statement necklace with jeans for a shabby chic look. I love missing old and new elements to create unique looks that no one else will have when I walk into a room.

Blue Bunny

In the rabbit hole, we will walk through gorgeous parks with talking trees. The shrubs sparkle with tiny yellow flowers tinted in gold. The easter eggs hidden are large and gold. The golden eggs sparkle like jewels.  When you crack them open treasures flow from inside.  Join me in the rabbit hole for a special Easter walk.

Wearing my special one-of-a-kind statement necklace.  Tiny vintage birds with blue flowers adorn blue/gray costume pearls. A vintage monkey greets you with jeweled eyes.  It never felt so good to look blue.  Won't you join us in the rabbit hole?

Time for a nip and tuck.

Like most people right now we all have a little more time than usual.  I have been busy revamping, organizing and a little glamour dreaming. As part of my clean up, I decided to revamp this blog.

I am inspired by vintage glamour but sometimes I have to live in the modern world.  I create looks wearable, subtle to the extreme that embodies gorgeous glamour.  I love the challenge to create easy to wear glamour looks.  I hope the videos inspire you to get up and get dressed during this time;)

How To Rise Up Over Nail Drama

 

Claws-Season-3

Yep everyone is experiencing this period of a time out.  Time outs are usually something we equate with kids misbehaving.  Has the world misbehaved and the universe is giving us a time out?  

It's funny how the simplest things have become essentials or so we thought.  I recently read a post with a girl complaining about her nails and not being able to have them done due to the ban to stay at home.  

The gamut of comments agreeing they need their nails done and this was so wrong.  Have we become spoiled? Did this generation never experience hardship or lived without the delicious details of glamour?  Funny what we took for granted even toilet paper has become very important. There will be no decorating of trees with toilet paper in these days ahead.  

I have searched three stores since the toilet hoarding extravaganza affair seen and talked about on social media.  Nothing in sight it's a paper drought.  As for nail salons forget it. Everone is closed and I'm not complaining. The last time I was in they insisted I wash my hands in front of them but not one person who worked there washed there hands the whole time I was there..sigh.  It's you, really it's not me, a new mentality?

What will we do without our essentials?  Are we a spoiled culture? Once this is over will we appreciate the luxuries of life again or take them for granted? In other parts of the world, people survive daily without nails and toilet paper. Perhaps we will even cook at home all month instead of eating out...wow what a concept.   

As for the glamour side of things, perhaps we go without getting our nails finished and learn todo them ourselves or even go natural, and enjoy that type of glamour. It's really up to us to reinvent and adapt to change.  It's not that bad you can still run to the drugstore and grab a bottle of nail polish or polish remover.  

This is your chance to reinvent you. Perhaps this is a good lesson for the world.  Let's have a time out and be self-sufficient?

Lovey
