Goth Swimsuit Ms October

June 5, 2009 Goth

Scarlett St Vitus was the first model we knew was going to be in the calendar. Matter of fact I did a test shoot with her to see if you could oiling a pale model’s skin worked the same as a tan one. It did, but the image was a little tame after we did […]

Goth Swimsuit Ms November

Tara Ward is the only non-goth model in the calendar. She gets to be the damsel in distress from Nosferatu.

April showers with a twist. A drowned model and a man with magic. This idea was Marc’s and he managed to work himself into another month, though I don’t think that was his plan. The model was one of only 2 models I would say weren’t goth at all. She was actually tan. Nor is […]

Goth Swimsuit Ms March

May 28, 2009 Goth

There just aren’t many good holidays in March. St. Patrick’s day doesn’t really lend itself to Goth. Ankha’s boyfriend at the time was Brian Crump, who was a body painter. We decided to do something theatrical. We had masks. We got this. The three masked people? Marc Moorash, my wife Suanna, and Model Spleen, who […]
