Photo Shoot with Elisanth for Lyris Design

Hi everyone!
Many of you have probably seen that my friend Elisanth visited me in Kiel before I moved, and she already visited me in Hamburg after I moved here. Actually I wanted to post this blog entry quite some time ago but I am way too slow with posting things here! So, finally here comes the blog entry about our shoot, aka love confession to this amazing model!

For the past four years we spent hours and hours chatting via Facebook. Some years ago we both were featured in the same magazine and got in touch because we loved each others photos - and in all this time we never managed to meet. But this year we finally did! I must admit, I really was a bit scared that we could not get along and that this virtual friendship might be over after this, but luckily that was not the case.
If I should discribe her to you I would say she is just like me, just in russian. It is really crazy how much we are alike, I guess this is what you call a soulmate. And as I don't want this to sound like a creepy loveletter, here is a special message to Elisanth: Priviet Mumbra! Ponos! Semichki! Shalava! Pizdijetz! Piderr! Dobojob! Rischaja! Huevo!

So! Now back to the title: photo shoots! We spent several days shooting amazing outfits, mostly I took photos of her and we also shot three sets together. One of them was with the wonderful outfits that we both have from Lyris Design.
I think it was two years ago that Carly, the lovely lady behind Lyris Design, messaged us and made each of us a custom outfit for photo shoots. Without knowing that the other one was also in touch we both picked something purple! Ever since then we knew: if we ever meet, we have to do a shoot together. In these outfits.
So now it finally happened and I can't tell you how excited I am to show them to you now! Well, you might already know them from facebook or instagram but now I finally want to share the entire set. I hope you like them :) And if you do, go and check out Lyris Designs page on Facebook or follow her on instagram. This is not a paid post and this whole shoot was a surprise for her - Carly is so talented and her creations are incredible!

Role Play Convention 2017

Hi everyone!

In May I traveled to Cologne to go to Role Play Convention! They had invited me three times before and I never managed to go but now I finally did! I was super happy about that and had a really great time with old and new friends. And it is always so super lovely to meet you guys at these events!


On saturday Aurelia Isabella and I dressed up as Thor & Loki! We built these costumes last year and I never wore mine again until now, so I was super happy that we decided to do it! Well, actually that is a lie... it was quite a dumb idea because it was over 30 degrees and wearing an armor is not the best outfit choice for summer. But our friend Monique was working super hard on her Hela cosplay so we just had to do it! Did I already mention that I am super excited for the new movie? I really can't wait!

With the insanely talented Lenora!

At the booth of Kes Cosplay!
With Sina, aka Spiegelland
Finally I met the cute Pretzl Cosplay!
With Hela, my love! I think she totally nailed that costume and I already cannot wait for the movie!
Attacked by a dinosaur!
Found myself :D At the booth of Feder & Schwert they also had Annie Bertrams book Wahre Märchen II :)
With Fräulein Kassandra <3

Btw I absolutely HATE my bra strap that you can see in all the photos :D Whyyyy did I not notice it?
In the afternoon I decided that it was enough armor for the day and I just wanted to relax!


On sunday I picked an outfit that was a bit better for the occasion: a flower fairy! And without too many words I will just show you some of the photos that I took :)
Thanks again to Role Play Convention for inviting me! I am already looking forward to the next year :)

With Snowwhites Daughter! She is so pretty <3
Lenora also was a fairy today! <3
With the guys from Loot Boy!
