Dolls ‘n’ Divas – Miss December + Giveaway!

A little into December but definitely worth the wait! Simone Simons is the hottie this month and a great way to end the year on the Dolls ‘n’ Divas Calendar. My inspiration for this shoot was Jessica Rabbit from the movie ‘Who Framed Roger Rabbit’, with Simone’s striking red hair it was perfect! Using a still from the movie, we created a scene for the shoot too Simone wore a red satin halter dress from Vivien of Holloway and her was hair styled by Marino Lambrix. Along with singing and writing for her band Epica, Simone loves all things photography, fashion and makeup related too – she did her own makeup for the calendar shoot. You can check out her personal blog here. To celebrate the end of the year I’m having a giveaway! You can win an A2 poster print (measures 420mm x 594mm) signed by Simone – it will be the image of Simone sitting on the green sofa mentioned in the above post.

As I was rocking out I spotted someone at the corner of my eye that was really familiar. After the show I went backstage to say hi to Machine Head who heard I was at the venue. They invited me to the after show at Sin club. Machine Head would meet us there and we would catch the tube. As we are walking along the oh-so familiar face walking with us was the guy that was standing beside me with his wife. It was Colin Richardson – best known for recording many Machine Head albums, Slipknot, Avenged Sevenfold and more. We get chatting and he told me stories of being out in LA with Machine Head and dodging bullets on the way to the recording studio […]
