I’ve just realised that I was very remiss, and while I shared links to Dr Sketchy photos on my facebook page, I never properly blogged about it. This is mostly because I was sick with a cold on the day of Dr Sketchy, and can barely remember what happened, much less what I said!
I almost ended up not having photos from Dr Sketchy due to my foggy brain, but it’s also to thank for getting them in the first place. I was so sick in the run-up to Dr Sketchy I forgot to ask the divine Sarah if she would come and take photos.
In an odd quirk of fate though, as the models and I, all dressed in stays and petticoats, and laden with their costume changes, rushed to the venue we bumped into Sarah taking photographs of the street. In my virus fugue I completely forgot that I hadn’t asked her to take pictures, and assumed that she was on the way to Dr Sketchy to do just that, which I proceeded to chat to her about, much to her bafflement! Being an extremely good sport, Sarah didn’t tell me to go stuff it, and instead dropped her afternoon plans and came along as the photographer. Did I tell you she was awesome?
She got some awesome photos (and even found time to do a bit of sketching of her own) too! Here are my favourites.
And my very favourite of all:
Sarah wasn’t the only one to help me out at the last minute that evening. Due to my cold I couldn’t wear a corset, so Joie de Vivre stepped in with less than 24 hours notice and provided most of her own costume. She wore the black and white ribbon corset, but sadly there are very few pictures of her in it from the event (but you can check out her much more modern, burlesque-y photoshoot here). Megan also subbed in when my original model couldn’t make it. My models are not only timeless beauties, but just place awesome and sweet!
