What Would Vanessa Do?

I wanted to share with you some of the images from the latest photoshoot I did with Catherine modeling. Many of the designs are from the Gothic Adornments Collection, inspired by gothic heroines from fiction and, most recently teevee.

I've recently added many new designs to the Gothic Adornments collection of the shop.

While shooting the collection we were talking about our common love for Penny Dreadful and particularly the character of Vanessa Ives who embodies the spiritual horror and conflict as well as ovaries-out demon possession like no other.  Her performance captures the lurid yet convincing dread of being “chosen” not by God, but by something else.

When I first heard they were making a show that combined all the horror classics in one universe, one show, I was skeptical, but I’ve fallen under the spell of the show and it is informing much of my work lately.
