Finally, the Gothic Lolita project is really done, finished, kaput! The presentation has been made, it is now out of my hands! Whoo Hoo! If I never see another piece of black lace, it'll be too soon... The ephemeral Xotica was the final model, which was only fair, since she was also the first model...

The idea was to mix up traditional EGL motifs with some "edgier" elements and see what happens. Now I know!

Very nice image, and congrats on completing the project.

But what are "traditional EGL techiques"?

"EGL" stands for "Elegant Gothic Lolita" and is a fairly strictly defined neo-victorian, lacy, frothy style of clothing. I took that premise and added some "harder" elements; the new buckled underbust corset in that shot, for instance...

Very nice image. Love the "look" - is she "good" or "bad"?
best wishes,
gus

Xotica hasn't ever contacted me about being in Houston. I've actually got a idea for gothic fashion if you want to send her down here with some clothes.

Got to get the model exchange program going, eh? Xotica just moved back into civilisation from the Hill Country, I'll remind her about Houston!

I will be in Houston Easter weekend. We were planning on driving down on the 15th, and back up the 16th. If we can get out of here early enough on Saturday, and you can pick me up from the spring area, I can get a shoot in.

I haven't been coming down to Houston other than for Holidays for awhile.

In the meantime, I will message you with contact information.
