I think the latest Fiend Magazine will be in Melbourne stores this weekend.
Shameless self promotion? A little but it is more abut supporting local alternative culture.
The more we can support those who are doing something about growing our alternative culture the more it will actually grow.
The magazine is getting better and better with every issue and if we can all support it and contribute to it then it will end up being a Coilhouse (if I may be so bold) or Gothic Lolita Bible. You can then say you were a part of its great success.
Speaking of supporting alternativeish culture. Who is going to Love Cats tonight? I think I might :).

|Recent Modelling Stuff
The last month has been a wee bit busy in regards to shoots etc.
I recently had the pleasure to model for Scarlet Zaphara Jewelry www.scarletzaphara.com
Kate, Mel and myself were chosen to model the beautiful gothic jewelry at Monsalvat. The location was superb and the makeup, which was done by the extremely talented Bec Holack from Sydney, was incredible.
A great day and a great shoot.
The most recent item was for the cover of mX magazine which was shot yesterday morning and was on the trains by 2.30pm. It was to encourage people to donate blood. Initially they wanted the whole vampire theme which is why I was chosen but then they had to tone it down due to the exposure to children. Instead it ended up being a big cheesy grin to entice people to give up their blood ;p.
A few more things will be coming out soon but I shall leave you guessing ;)
P.S. I miss my Rael.

I took my puppy and my parents to have a look at the outside of my new house. No one is living there so we had a wander around the little backyard and I let Bella off the leash and she went mental. She ran so fast around the little garden that I thought she was going to take off.
She will be a very happy puppy indeed.
Now I just have to wait until I am allowed in :(

I went out on Friday night, yes you heard it ;p
Rael and I went around to Clint and Buttons for a pre Cab Noc catch up with the lovely Holly, Anne-Louise, Jon and Ash (in spirit or something ;p). It was a great little gathering, sitting around chatting and listening to Bowie on Vinyl.
We all then headed off to Cab's which was at the old Paladin (yay). Admittedly I pulled up out the front and contemplated going home but managed to make my way in which I am glad I did.
I got to catch up with some old and new friends and have a little boogie to The Cult, ah Patricia would be pleased.
The funniest thing about the night was when this guy came up to me and asked if i was Samantha, he then went on to tell me that he recognised me from 1991 when I used to go to Chasers Hard n Fast and that I hadnt aged a bit (oh you ;p). He also showed me how I used to dance which was very enthusiastic and told me that one of his "friends" had a crush on me. Hmmm, given he remembered everything about me from 18 years ago I somehow doubt the "friend" line ;p. Blasts from the past.
It was a good night indeed :)

|Look after yourselves out there
I wish I could say this year has started off well but it hasnt.
I do apologise to those I didnt say goodbye to at Euchronia but I just wasnt able to relax.
I cant go into details but my family is going through a lot at the moment and I am angry and sad and all over the place.
Please take care out there and please accept my apologies for not being here for you.

|Last Agency one for the week I promise ;p
At the end of September I got contacted by UK Magazine Metal Hammer, which is the UK's biggest metal magazine distributed world wide.
They needed some hot metal chicks for a shoot they were doing in Australia with Australian metal band Airborne.
The timing was very tight. They were flying their photographer over and would confirm the shoot the morning of the shoot with some sketchy details throughout the week.
The models on my books who fit the brief were already going to Sydney so I sent them a list of 10 beautiful and professional models I had either worked with in the past or had seen their work.
They picked four stunning girls and for your viewing pleasure here is The Cover of international magazine Metal Hammer.
Congratulations to the four Melbourne Models who are now on the cover.

|Modelling Agency Stuff
I can talk about one of the big jobs we have recently been involved in (the second one is released on 19/11 and I shall put up details then)
The Nando's campaign. The ad agency contacted me to supply models and after sending them photos of not only my own models but others who fit the brief they ended up choosing the two independents and one of my models. You will see posters and billboards around Australia. Congrats to the three models who are being seen Australia wide.
Last week we also appeared in the Melbourne Leader with an article and a photo of one of my models.
A couple of weeks ago we supplied 10 models for the OK Carnivale fashion show at Madame Brussels.
We have lots of things in the pipeline and as they come to hand I will post them.
I may start up an Agency lj if we get super busy :D Current Mood: chipper

I am exhausted after another whirlwind weekend in Sydney.
Went up and modelled for Matt Bylett for the Rubberball. I have no idea if the ball was good or not as I was backstage the entire night and our show wasnt on until 2am which is waaaaaaaay past my bedtime ;p.
I dont think I will do the Sydney thing anymore. I always feel there is a lot of effort and money from my part without much reward.
Dont get me wrong, I adore Matt and his designs are awesome but Sydney just doesnt do it for me.
I hope you are all well.
See you soon, maybe at the Bizare Music Festival at DV8 this coming weekend?
I am on the catwalk for 30 seconds for DV8 shop :)

|A weee bit busy
This week is going to be a busy one.
We are moving studios. We are moving to a space that is 3 and a bit times the size of the current studio in Kilsyth.
Tuesday I am going to Yearing Station to help Peter with an exhibition.
I am off to Sydney on Thursday with my love and my other love Fran. Fran and I are modelling at the Lunamorph fashion parade and three of my models are being flown up to model for Raven. While up there I also have to work with a few of the models and designers and meet with some new models and put together some workshops so it is going to be quite hectic.
It is Raels birthday on Sunday so hopefully in amongst all the running around we get to celebrate his birthday.
Friday I have a shoot here in Melbourne that I have to coordinate. I got the call on yesterday for a shoot to happen on Friday - nice to get plenty of notice ;p. Should be a good shoot for those involved too.
Sometime during the week I have to get my hair fixed, pack some more of the studio, do some selling for my dad and pack.
I hope everyone is looking after themselves. Current Mood: busy

|thank you everyone
for all the awesome suggestions and best wishes for Dad and Luke.
I am really pushing for dad to take it further but at the moment he is very resistant. He wants to forget about it.
I told him about going to the media and he said no. Mum had also suggest going to Colling FC and again he said no as a time before his car was broken into in the members carpark and they didnt do anything.
He is feeling like no one cares so there is no point in doing anything.
I am upset the cops didnt do anything but I guess if I was a cop in this current climate I wouldnt want to put myself in danger either. The same goes with those at the station, I think everyone still has it fresh in their mind that last time someone tried to help someone they got shot and killed for their kindness. It is sad that we have to fear such things.
Dad and Luke would have a case to take it further especially with the ctv footage and with the trauma they are going through now but I am not sure if I can get them to do anything.
I am going to push the media side again as the Security Guard said this happens every week. They pick what they see as a soft target and they beat them just for the fun of it. The security guard said it wouldnt have mattered if my brother totally ignored them, they would have still jumped them. If I can push the "you will be saving others" path then perhaps he will take it further.
It is hard to say if they are ok. Dad has some lumps on the back of his neck and is very angry. Last time something traumatic happened to him he went into a deep depression - his health is bad anyway and I feel he is going to let it all get ontop of him again.
I will keep pushing and let you know how it goes.
In the meantime, try and keep yourselves as safe as possible. If you can, avoid travelling during football times and find a security guard and hang around them until your train arrives.
