A ditsy lady and a guy walk into an office building elevator. The lady smiles at the gent and says the usual "TGIF". The guy grumbles and mumbles "shit". The lady frowns for a split second but then goes back to her smile and says again "TGIF!". The guy doesn't change the routine and responds "shit". So the lady asks "Why are you saying that? TGIF - thank god it's Friday!". Unimpressed the guy responds:
I'm at the office job and here we have a satellite radio that basically plays the same music for the past two years. (About 50 songs get rotated and yes we get the pleasure of hearing "Let it go" and Perry's "Eye of the tiger" twice a day) I'm surprised how Darwinism didn't force my eardrums to evolve into growing extremities and just walk out on me...
Anyhow, this brought me to think of a memory - back when I was a kid I used to delve into the miraculous world of mIRC (raise hands who remembers that one ) and beyond the usual a/s/l, you would ask a person "what kind of music do you listen to?". And a lot of the times the answer would be "good music!". Do people still say that? How delusional one has to be?... *le sigh*
They switched the station to "Bridge XM" - it has all sorts of oldies (60's, 70's). It's been playing for a couple of days and the norms are already complaining. B#tch please, I've been listening to your crappy synthetic music for two years!! Payback is a, yes, b#tch.
I used to work some place that played ''Rythme FM'' in the shop. I went there to buy some thing this summer and oh... what a twist... they still play the same radio station that still plays the same (lame) songs 2 years later!!! The ''popular'' station are really anemic about diversity.
I know that on the track you have little care for fellow road users. They're opponents to you and you're used to a certain routine in your driving. But out here, in the "real" world, we're all supposed to SHARE the road. You don't really owe anything to anybody but it's just common sense. Something that your mom and dad hopefully taught you. So I strongly suggest to at least start using your flashers. (It's that stick on your steering wheel... no... not that one, that one is for when god is crying because of the way you were driving... yes that one. Magic, right!?) Do we have an understanding?
Wait a second, you were never a race car driver? THEN YOU HAVE NO F-ING EXCUSE! Use the damn thingamajig!
Well it would be hard to issue a ticket for that kind of offense. But there are clear offenses that are even a bigger pet peeve of mine, are easily ticketable and could actually serve to help the traffic - yes, I'm looking at you, line skippers!
It is about time for my very first entry in 2014.
I’ve just added some new pictures that have been made back in 2013.
But don’t worry the first 2014 pictures will follow very soon
Once again I got to wear a cute Ponyklau corset.
I really love their work. Somehow it suits my personal style so very well.
This piece belongs to their older collection, but it still belongs to one of my favourites.
It is easy to wear and I love the little silver bubbles <3
That's probably why this corset got the name 'Blubb'. It suits is pretty good :P
I was very lucky to work with the talented Bavaria based photographer Tom Tomate.
Once again I’ve visited his extraordinary place in Regensburg.
Once more I’ve enjoyed the gigantic amount of rooms and possibilities.
Tom has built this set. The lights in the background are produced by several flashlights behind the glass.
If you look closely, you can see some bottles that are standing on the make-up table at the other side, lol.
Tom is a real light wizard! I really adore his style.
… And here you can find one of the results.
I hope you guys enjoy the pictures as much as I do.
The make-up is a bit more extreme than usually. I love it.
In 2014 probably some darker, batcave-inspired photoshoots will follow.
Also the silver/black combination will be used more often!

Icarus Witch will be playing with Jake E. Lee's Red Dragon Cartel at The DEAD Horse Cantina & Music Hall on March 25th. We'll have a limited amount of tickets for sale in our merch store soon so message us to reserve yours ASAP!
Have you ever heard of the ‘toilet diaries?’. No? Well you should
The toilet diaries is a concept two young photographers came up with.
In the gigantic building they were living in, they had two toilets next to each other.
Most people will just see two boring toilets, but for them this was a source of inspiration!
They started to take pictures with all sorts of different themes in their toilets.
Everything was allowed, as long as it was hilarious!
One day they came up with the idea of two old men who were after their innocent nurse
who was caring for them. They thought of a way how to look old and arranged the clothing,
beards etc. They only needed a nurse! Because it’s not a secret that I love medical stuff,
one of the guys (Marc) dropped me a line, asking if I would be interested in taking part in
I’m always in for new and spontaneous things, so the answer was yes!
I’ve been working with Marc before and I knew it would be lots of fun!
They even made a calendar out of their best pictures and guess what?
My picture was chosen to be in the calendar as well! *theehee*
I just love stuff like this. Not everything has to be so serious!
Are you interested in buying their calendar? *click here*
And get your own copy!

It’s been awfully long since I wrote my last journal entry, so I really have to change that!
Normally I only use one picture and write lots of text.
But I know very long entries are not very inviting to read.
So from now on I’ll use less text and more pictures! (with a little help from Instagram *wink*)
So… last Friday I’ve updated some new pictures. I’m very happy with the results.
But I have to admit the corset I got to wear is a true dream!
It is handcrafted by my beautiful colleague Ophelia Overdose.
I’m not a great fan of the ‘standard’ steampunk styles with lots of lace, stripes and Victorian skirts.
But I do love the more dieselpunk styled items a lot. And Ophelia really knows how to use this style!
This beauty called the ‘steampunk goddess corset’ I got to wear!
Pasties aren’t my thing so I’ve decided not to wear them.
But I did wear the ‘Steampunk Goddess Fascinator’.
This unique artwork looks marvellous together with the corset.
I’ve decided to use some heavier make-up than I usually do and also to put my dreads a bit more up.
Anyway, here you can find the final result! Something a bit different from my current 2013 portfolio
And of course some more pictures can be found in my gallery.
This definitely isn’t the last time that’s I’ve worked with the awesome Guldor Photography, so stay tuned for more!
