Kunstlerhaus Bethanien exhibition in Berlin

I was invited to exhibit two pieces in the Künstlerhaus Bethanien in Berlin. Celebrating 40 year anniversary with the opening of ‘The Mechanical Corps. On the Trail of Jules Verne’. I went to the launch night, it was very well attended and we had a brilliant evening. The gallery also has studio space for artist to work in.

I felt sorry for this poor vintage creature when I found him at the London Dungeon car boot sale. Yes! they really did have a stall selling all their Jack the Ripper tour stuff and booty when they moved location in London. I curled the vintage creature round the brim of a brown tweed hat with a few other curios and artifacts.

Vintage Car Boot Sale, Southbank, London.

An amazing day at the vintage car boot sale in wonderful sunny weather and a great atmosphere. An ideal place to find those cute vintage outfits and unusual artifacts for me to add to jewellery and accessory making.

Meeting the Beast at the ball

Meeting the Beast at the ball

A wonderful evening spent at the Gala Nocturna ball with the theme Beauty and the Beast, held in Antwerp and this year the evenings venue was the Antwerp Zoo. A brilliant ball room, majestic stair case and winter garden. I hope they hold another one next year and I can’t wait to hear the theme and venue.

Human bones rain down at Whitby after church yard land slide.

Some more photos from the Bram Stoker International Film Festival fashion show 2012 taken at Whitby, UK. the celebrated town of Dracula and wonderful for all followers of goth.  Whitby has recently been in the news for its terrible land slides in the graveyard where reportedly “human bones were raining  down” on to the cottages and gardens below. A very sad scene for such a historic and beautifully situated Church. Link to the story on the BBC below.

The Bram Stoker International Film Festival Fashion Show continued.

Part three of photos from The Bram Stoker International Film Festival Fashion Show held in Whitby, North Yorkshire, UK.

This is our third model; the scumptious Evie Wolfe wearing a shocking pink bird fascinator and matching beautiful corset and skirt. I designed the hat to contrast with her blue hair!  I wanted to keep the collection themed by Gaslight romance and Victorian horror.

We had a fun weekend, with great friends, excellent entertainment in the wonderful town of Whitby and finished it off Sunday at midnight watching the 1992 Dracula film directed and produced by Francis Ford Coppola, based on Bram Stoker’s novel.

Whitby is a seaside town and port situated on the east coast of Yorkshire, England. Once a year it holds the film Festival and twice a year the Gothic music weekends in April and then at Halloween.

Whitby is the home to the ruins of Whitby Abbey, has a history of fishing and whaling, was where Captain Cook learned seamanship, the steam railway arrived in 1839, jet and alum were mined locally with Whitby jet being sort after and fashionable by the Victorians and is associated with the horror novel Dracula writen by Bram Stoker.  Dracula leaves his castle and boards a Russian ship, the Demeter, taking along with him boxes of Transylvanian soil, which he needs in order to regain his strength. During the voyage to Whitby, he sustains himself on the ship’s crew members. Only one body is later found, that of the captain, who is found tied up to the ship’s helm. The captain’s log is recovered and tells of strange events that had taken place during the ship’s journey. Dracula leaves the ship in the form of a dog.

These are the first few photos – more to follow ……
