Photos from the Swan Lake Masquerade Ball

Dear Friends,

I have been taking a little break, as of late; letting my hands heal a bit from all the handsewing I did for the Masquerade Ball Vignette for Dances of Vice!

I have been painting ( yes, oil painting!) which is something I have been wanting to
get back to, for oh around 10 years now...( more on that later)

Miss Jeniviva's ("The Dying Swan") tulle and ostrich feather skirt took about 50-60 yards of black tulle to make. It was hand draped too, mind you!

With out further ado.. here are the pictures courtesy of

New Rococo Photo Shoot: The Look of Love Part 1 and 2!

Dear Friends,

I admit I am a bit behind..
The Dances Of Vice "Swan Lake Masquerade Ball"
was this past weekend at Galapagos Art Space here in NYC.

I didn't get much sleep beforehand, as I was working on the small vignette
I presented "Le Cygne de Morte Noir", or "The Dying Black Swan".

I just received some photographs , and they are lovely indeed!!
But I must catch up and
present the lovely images from a shoot I took in the middle of April.

Without further ado; here is the Look of Love parts One and Two!

Model is: Anna
