Punk Storm Cosplay // Collaboration

Punk Storm has been a dream of mine since I could first remember. I’m talking before I could even imagine holding a camera would get me as far as it has. When the Queen behind Weave N Luxury, the Queen behind SKG Designs and I all started talking about a collaboration where I’d be in front of the camera, I jumped at the chance to live one of my wildest dreams out.

The Hair // + Weave N Luxury

The wig to this cosplay was created from 100% human hair by Weave N Luxury. When I said Storm, she just immediately knew where I was going with it. It was crazy. She dyed it so that it had the look specifically and then when I got on set, she styled and cut it right there while it was on my head. Magic!

The Punk Look // + SKG Designs

You can’t be punk storm without having some punk in your outfit.
I contemplated for weeks what would make this look complete. Of course it was almost a no brainer after time. My handmade EST 19xx spiked bra. I’ve been asked for years if I made the bra myself, the answer is yes! Ontop of that is the Selene Harness that I rocked right alongside the Selene waist belt, both leather and handmade from SKG.

The collar is a white leather with a large O ring also created by SKG designs. While it may not be available in white anymore, there is definitely an entire leather collection that can be purchased in either red or black.

Mini Session Monday: Noodlez

Happy Mini Session Monday, Kings and Queens. It’s beginning to feel a lot like winter in Chicago. The windy city is getting windier and everyone around me is already getting their winter clothes ready. Yet, I’m still nostalgic about autumn. I’m still anticipating the falling all the leaves and the the colors that come with it. Luckily, I wasn’t the only one. I do believe this is the first time I’m introducing you the beautiful Miss Noodlez, but trust me when I say you won’t be seeing the last of this adorable one!

Featured Photography Portrait

Nina – Flower Child

Nina has been waiting for her time to shine. Diligently shooting behind the scenes with Jasemine Denise Photography for a little over two months now, she’s been bearing the cold, the wind and the rain. Finally.. her time has come. I still can’t believe it’s finally spring in Chicago. I honestly felt like this day was never going to come. Fun fact about Nina, she thrives in the sunlight. She’s got such a vivid and bright personality! She’s got the absolute personality of a flower child. It’s a beautiful thing!

They say that a truly free spirit cannot be tamed.

The essence of Nina is that she can go from a stone cold model face to a carefree black girl in a heartbeat. That is simply because that’s who she is. She’s got a beautiful smile and a creative spirit. The essence is deeply rooted within her. While she can be emotional and very serious, she can also be the kicked back girl you can catch an episode of Dragon Ball Z with.

Hidden depths are a gift.

It’s not long in any session before it simply blossoms out of Nina. It starts as a simple stare, which later transforms into a smile.. Eventually her inner essence consumes her and seemingly brightens everything else around her. Nina Riggins - Jasemine Denise Photography - Spring 2016-26Nina Riggins - Jasemine Denise Photography - Spring 2016-85
