TRANSELF opening was a fantastic evening, friends,  acquaintances and insteresting new people came and was a real nice time at Raibu. I am deeply thankful for the support and the interest in my work, every question and comment on the series flatter me. Thank you so much to Cassandra Luckhardt for making the evening even more special with her Viola da Gamba solo and Eduard Marcet for the final touch of the evening with her violin solo.

Doña Gata Loca

 

 

Doña Gata Loca

She used to be a successful diplomatic but the crisis hit hard so she decided to open her own business as a talent manager. She is the manager of Uncle Goaty, Deer Cousin, Lady Polar, Mama Bear, Madame Bunny, Monsieur Tiger and Lady Foxy fox. She has to adjust her whole wardrobe from her previous diplomatic carrier so she blend better into her new business but she just went confuse and over the top, now she acts like a tough girl but is hard to hide that she is still a lady deep inside.


                Doña Gata Loca

Doña Gata Loca, solía ser una diplomatica de éxito pero la crisis golpeó duro y decidió abrir su propio negocio como representante de talentos. Hoy día es la representante de Uncle Goaty, Deer Cousin, Lady Polar, Mama Bear, Madame Bunny, Monsieur Tiger and Lady Foxy fox. Ha tenido que ajustar todo el guardaropa de su oficio previo para mezclarse mejor entre su nuevo gremio pero se confundió un poco y lo llevo al extremo, ahora actua como una mujer ruda pero es difícil discimular que es una señorita en lo mas profundo.

Deer Cousin

 

 

Deer Cousin

Dear cousin deer is in a blue period, he was in the path to fame with his first album release but an unthinkable tragedy strike his carrier when in the middle of the stage before saying the first words of the song he forgot the lyrics and could not remember again. That was the end of his solo singer carrier he does not have a penny not even for buying a new button for his jacket, he actually inherited millions a couple of years ago but he does not remember which bank he deposited the money in.


                El Primo Ciervo

El querido primo ciervo está en un período triste. Iba en su camino a la fama cuando un drama impensable irrumpio en su vida; en el medio del escenario antes de pronunciar las primeras palabras de la cancíon a interpretar se le olvido la letra y no la pudo recordar mas. Ese fue el final de su carrera como cantautor. Se encuentra sin un centavo, ni para comprar un nuevo botón a su chaqueta. En realidad, heredó millónes algunos años atrás pero no recuerda el banco en el que deposito el dinero de la herencia.

Auncle Goaty

Uncle Goaty is going through a tough period; as a retired narco cartel leader life is not so exited any more and he is suffering abruptly mood changes. He is now an old soul his legs and body in general are not the same of those years where he could run away from police or participate in a cross-fire. Extravagant as in his youth, he loves his feathers and exotic jewelry. Nowadays work as a senior model for a gentleman fashion line he earns good money but miss the fear people use to had him as a narco.


                   Tío Cabra

Tío Cabra, está pasando por un periodo duro, como ex-jefe de un narco cartel retirado la vida ya no es tan apasionante y está sufriendo de cambios de humor repentinos. Hoy en día es un alma vieja y su piernas y cuerpo ya no son los mismos de aquellos días cuando corría huyendo de la policía o participar en un fuego cruzado. Extravagante al igual que en su juventud, ama sus plumas y sus joyas. Ahora trabaja como modelo de la tercera edad para una marca de ropa para caballeros, gana buen dinero pero extraña el mierod que la gente le tenía como narco.

Megan Alter Photography Workshop: Game of Thrones.

I took a photography workshop a few weeks ago with Megan Alter a photographer from New York based now here in Amsterdam; she produce a Real Shoot Experience workshop where there is a team that prepares the location, styling, makeup, models and all the basics for a professional shooting and you get to go there and start shooting. It was quite a new experience for me, different lights and environment from the way I usually work in the solitude of my studio so it was a bit of a challenge in some ways and a surprising relief to just pay attention to the camera and not to deal with makeup, hair and styling myself as usual. Here my results of the shooting day but first the credits to all the collaborators for the days.

Women's Styling: Wendy de Kok, Men's Styling: Tobias Lurvink, Hair & Make-up: Anne de Bruin, Production: Megan Alter Photography, Cape & Chainmail: JosephTailor, Blacksmith Work: Bay Grant (iron bowl & iron rose).

Mama Bear

 

 

Mama Bear

Mama Bear is all about enjoying life, she only wants to know about pleasure and glamour, her favorite thing is to do nothing during the day and have a glass of Merlot at night. The thing is... she always has a bit too much wine which triggers her Tourette syndrome and makes her go around the neighbourhood shouting at everyone the most vicious words, then she ends knocked out in her couch with no recollection whatsoever. Kind of embarrassed next day but... neighbours will get over.


                   Mama Bear

Mama Bear vive para dsifrutar la vida, solo le interesa saber sobre placeres y glamur, su cosa preferida es hacer nada durante el día y disfrutar de una copa de Merlot a la noche. Lo que pasa es lo siguiente... siempre bebe mas vino de la cuenta lo que detona su síndrome de Tourette y se va por todo el vecindario propinando los mas viciosos insultos a todo el que cruza, luego termina inconsciente en su poltrona sin recordar nada en lo absoluto. Un poco avergonzada amanece al día siguiente... pero los vecinos lo superarán.
