Emo kids in Brisbane. <3

 I wouldn't call myself emo by any means, but I know the emo scene has a few budding photographers who might be interested in this. ^^

Hello everybody.

I'm an amatuer model and was looking to add to my portfolio - I'm not looking for a professional photographer, just somebody with a keen eye and a half-decent camera who would be willing to play around a bit.

I was thinking this could be a good learning experience for both me as a model and the other person as a photographer, no money involved, just getting the hang of things better.

My modelling is more in the vein of dark/obscure/gothic, and even horror. I do my own hair, makeup and clothing, unless you would like me to look otherwise. I can also bring along fake blood if needed.

I'll consider absolutely anybody.

Pictures/measurements/sizes on request.

Please email me or contact me via MSN on KindestDemon@hotmail.com.

Thank you!

Hi all, I thought some of you might be interested in this, particularly as a way of meeting new people in the Brisbane area:

Makers Group – Carindale library

Are you a maker? Do you paint, craft, make models, build robots, grow your own veges, keep chooks, make your own clothes, sculpt, write stories, illustrate or do anything else creative or home grown?

Come and join fellow Makers at the Carindale library every second Tuesday from 12-4pm, starting September 2nd.

Each week a volunteer from the group will hold an informal workshop on a favorite maker project. The first workshop will be Coptic Binding and Book Making with Renee Dillon, a local artist.

Book a place or just show up.  Absolutely everyone is welcome!

You know it's that time of year again, and of course Dr Sketchy's never fails to deliver presents that will bring a smile to your face!

This Wednesday we are very pleased indeed to present a very special DOUBLE ACT for Dr Sketchy's.

FRESH from their star performance at the Burlesque Ball - it's Tigerlil and Derek. Those lucky enough to be at the ball will no doubt fondly remember their routine, with Tigerlil a very saucy lion-tamer and Derek her acrobatic misbehaving lion. It was a routine that had many jaws agape and thunderous applause was the natural reaction!

They will be gracing us with their presence this Wednesday and it will be an excellent way to see out 2007. Don't miss this one!

Dr Sketchy's Anti-Art School Brisbane is going strong - if you haven't checked it out yet, you should!

More info can be found at our livejournal community: drsketchybne
In a nutshell - it's a life drawing class. In a private room in a pub, where you're allowed to drink, and laugh, and there's music. And instead of a boring, silent nude the models are crazy circus stars, gorgeous burlesque queens and other fab creatures.. sound like fun?? It is!!

We have exciting stuff coming up:

On Wednesday 3rd October, our model will be Lux LaMort - she is an amazing curvaceous ballerina (yes there is such a thing and needs to be seen to be believed!), a burlesque sensation not to be missed!

On Wednesday 17th October we will be having a "Twisted Fairy Tale" theme with the gorgeous Lava Lee. This sultry siren will lead us down the garden path, just make sure you don't get eaten by a big bad wolf!

And on Halloween Night we will be going all out!! There is going to be a Halloween DOUBLE BILL that you won't soon forget. More details coming soon!

Calling all Models and Hair & Make-Up Artists! 
((Especially you wanna-bes!))

First of:: I am NOT looking for professionals. 

Here's the deal:: I don't want people with a zillion credentials who are going to charge the earth. Basically I want pretty girls and clever hair and make-up artists who willing to do this basically free of charge. You'll recieve whichever photos you'd like of the photoshoot tho for your portfolio. ((This will be the first photoshoot ever for my business, and so we havn't sold anything yet because no one knows what it looks like, therefore, we have no money :) ))

And this is why:: I've JUST started my own label, and I need some alternative-looking ((you don't NEED to have tatts and piercings, although it would be incredibly aweosme if you did)) models to model my shit. I make rock'n'roll, 50s-inspired clothing with a modern feel to it for boys an girls ((as in grown-ups, not chldren...)). Eventually this will expand to a more wider range of sub-cultures, but for now, this is where we are. We are a registered and ABN'd business, and the website and logo are currently in the works :)

If your interested, please contact Max California through this Lj and you'll be sent an email with further details :)

Zombiewalk '06 [Apr. 2nd, 2006|08:57 pm]
Emo kids in Brisbane. <3


Zombiewalk '06 happened today, April 2 in Brisbane. Although roughly 150 signed up to go, a massive 500-600 zombies gathered at Roma Street Parklands and shambled down through King George Square and Queens St. Mall, disrupting peace protests and dumfounding shoppers.

I spent most of the time snapping as much as I could and being gnawed on by the undead. It was absolutely unbelievable. I've uploaded all the best ones, as well as some mediocre shots that help illustrate how amazing it all was. Please excuse some of the blur - the afternoon sun made it difficult for me to get pictures sometimes. And everyone was moving so fast!


If you want extreme high res photos (so you can get them printed or enlarged), go to this Zombiewalk '06 post on my livejournal and comment with your email address! I will send non-watermarked pictures TOTALLY FREE OH GOD!!

(If you have any other Zombiewalk photos, it might be an idea to add them to the end of this post so we don't clutter it up for people who aren't interested. Just a suggestion, ignore me if you want to!)

let's face it, BRISBANE IS "THIS FUCKING BIG". we all know it. who hasn't gone to introduce their friend to someone at a gig or event only to find out that they already know each other "from that project where they worked on that thing with that person, and gees it was fun"

brisbane_is is about just that, the amusingly and sometimes scary interconnectedness in brisbane. it's a space for people in brisbane to engage, discuss and ignore each other. it's not meant to take away from brisneyland or brisvegas or any other brisbane based lj community, it is simply meant to offer a space for stuff like promotion of upcoming events, upcoming gigs, talks or lectures that might be worth going to. it'a a place to slag of the council if you like, or talk about how crappy the 3am lock out is.

link up to brisbane_is now. all the cool kids are doing it!
