Magicland


The week that has just finished has been the most surreal week of my life.

It all started when I moved into my new apartment in Williamsburg. It is no ordinary apartment. It is called "Magicland". It is the trippiest place I have ever seen.

Imagine a place where every time you look around, you find something weird and wonderful to laugh at.
We have all sorts of insane things in this apartment... kitsch LP's (artists like Wham!, Janis Joplin, Prince to name a few...), animal masks, peacock feathers, hookahs and candles with Pope John Paul 2nd.

The first night I moved in, we had a dance class in the loft. It was designed to open up the chakras - so there were lots of sunshines and rainbows being made by all.

I then had a bridal shoot with LA photographer, Jason Lanier. He was after a location, so I suggested Magicland to him. He just so happened to have a second bridal dress. My room mate, Patricia's came home and was surprised with her very first photo shoot! We shot up on the roof top against the Manhattan Skyline and on the loft. Patricia was really natural in front of the camera. It was so much fun watching her work!

I then had another photo shoot in the apartment with Dutch Photographer Rinze Van Brug on Friday. I had my room mates participate again...This time Shepherd and his partner, Armand joined in the fun. We shot all sorts of crazy stuff...we used toy alligators as microphones, and I got to "rock out with my cock out" (literally - I was holding a plastic rooster - complete with a mostache!)

I think we will have some amazing images from that - so I will post them up once we get the images back.

What can I say...NYC is one helluva crazy place!

I am loving every minute of it!
