The male corset

An other project I worked on during the maternity leave was a male corset.

I have wanted to make a male corset for quite some time, as as my own body was in no shape to get into a corset, this was the perfect time.

I found a model in Niels Laigaard Mikkelsen, a Makeup artist I have worked with on several occasions. Unfortunately the corset was finished very close to the birth of my son, so we do not have any fancy pictures of it, as I was using all my energy on my son.

I did however mannage to take some snapshots of the corset on a pillow, and I think it turned out rather lovely! The pink binding was rather hard to find, as it is lighter than fuchia but darker than pink, and we affectionally named it flamboyant pink:)

Another corset for Lady Effulgent

During my maternity leave I also created another corset for the burlesque performer Lady Effulgent, -this time a pink corset. This time she rhinestoned the corset herself after a sample I made, and to be honest I think she made it look stunning!

The corset was then used for an act together with Lea Blue Delmas for Copenhagen Grotesque Burlesques Way out west -Vauderville party in August, where Lea Blue delmas wore the black corset with rhinestones that I made for Lady Effulgent last year.

Don't they just look divine?

The long silence

I know there has been a very long silence on the blog, but as you know from the last posts, I have been pregnant and am now the proud mother of a 5 month old little boy named Erik.

Now I haven't been completely inactive with the sewing machine, so in the coming days I am going to post about the different projects.

So, let's start with something for myself during the pregnancy:

When I was pregnant I was so lucky to go for a pregnancy shoot with one of my favorite photographers to work with Tine Sørensen. I made two peignoirs for the shoot, and the resulting photos were just what I hoped for.
