Galaxy purses !

Cosmic joy.

I've been meaning to try this for a while, and had the frames ready, but after making the Galaxy dress a while back for Beki, I had some bits of fabric left after cutting out the pattern, and thought these would make great purses! Really happy with the result, the print is captured so well in this format!
So, I made some nebula print purses ! The pictures below are the same purse, back and front views. Something I love about this fabric is the colours. The reds and blues and purples all swirling together to create this lovely print! It could be a great purse, or maybe a glasses case, pencil case!
The purse is for sale on my Etsy page here !

Here's a little snap of the inside with Cyanide Kiss label:

Whilst I was making the Galaxy purse, I also made a handbag and a mini purse from the extra fabric for a friend's birthday, much different to my usual style as it wasn't for Cyanide Kiss, but a present, but I think it will be her cup of tea!

50's Pin up Party

50's Pin up Party !

 At the end of July, Cyanide Kiss took part in the Polka dots and Pearls Pin up party! The event was organised by the lovely Rebecca Ebbitt from Polka dots and Pearls (looking lovely here in a custom Cyanide Kiss dress!)

All ticket sales included a donation to UNICEF. There were sandwiches, home-made cakes and teas alongside stalls and an makeover booth provided by Bethany Jane Davies. Special guests included singer Bexi Owen, and rockabilly model Coco Fierce.

The venue and catwalk show

The venue was Ridgmont House in Horwich, which can be hired for weddings. Here's a picture of the venue with everyone tucking into their cakes and sandwiches:

Nom Nom Pix was on hand to capture the day, and took some great shots of the catwalk preperations and some model shots afterwards-

Unicorns, Kittys, and Ponies!

Well, I took a little time out to get married, and swan off on honeymoon for a couple of weeks, but now I'm back with lots of fresh new ideas and styles ready to launch soon!!
But until then, here's a few shots from a great couple of shoots I did recently with the lovely ladies from Moda Alt management

The shoot was split into two sections, with a studio shoot of the new Pony dress, and an outdoor shoot featuring the Hello Kitty dress and Unicorn dress! The team for both shoots consisted of:

Jas Stephenson
- photographer
Amphetamin -modelling
Saph - retouching

With two great make up artists working with us to perfect the images .On the pony dress shoot (above and below) we had the fantasticly talented Daneka Dunne who also did an amazing job of my bridal make up, you should all check out her page if you're looking for a make up artist! We've worked together on a few shoots now always with gorgeous results!

 And for the outdoor shots, Ailsa Caldwell did a great job..check out those eyes! (below)
Great to work with Ailsa for the first time.

If you're wondering where to find the fantastic bow and crown we used on the next few shots, be sure to check out Janine Basil's etsy shop here
