Lady in red

Yesterday I had a photoshoot with a photographer called Teemu Rytky with whom I had never worked before. The photoshoot was planned in a bit of a hurry and I hadn't been in front of the camera for a while, so I was afraid of not being able to do my best (the migraine that I woke up to probably didn't help much either!), but I already got a picture from the set and it shows how working with a good photographer always makes a difference!

By the way, the gown I'm wearing was made by me from scratch! They had that red sequin fabric in a fabric store in Helsinki and I totally fell in love since I saw it the first time, so in the end I just had to buy it! I ended up turning it into a 1930's inspired evening gown, with butterfly sleeves and a split back you can't see in the picture. I made it to wear after our first group performance in the Helsinki Burlesque Festival 2012 and I confess I was quite pleased with the result :-)
