Lil Blue Attempts #MerMay

So as some of you may be aware certain months/events can be accompanied by specific art challenges. One of these challenges that takes place during the month of May is “#MerMay”. What’s MerMay? Well it’s an entire month dedicated to all things mermaid! Usually this is just an art kind of thing and results in some gorgeous pictures, however I figured I’d have a go at making it a daily photo challenge. So for the month of May I’ll be attempting to post selfies/photos that are prompted by the #MerMay challenge.

I’ve put together my own prompt list, inspired by the ones I found via a quick Google search and now all that’s left is to get started! So wish me luck and follow along. I’ll be posting daily photos on my Patreon, Instagram and Facebook (links at the bottom) and feel free to join in the fun.

And keep up with my #MerMay challenge. I will be posting updates on here as often as I can as well ^_^

25.4.18 – “Wet AF” with Lee Jones and Jazzebell

My second shoot with Lee Jones (aka Radiomoths) as photographer and my first time working with the fabulous Jazzebell. Which came about due to the fact that they were both staying with me for a little while and Jazz wanted to get some water themed images. So the only logical thing to do was have a water fight in a small paddling pool between rain showers haha.

We started the day by decorating some water guns. Turning them into the most appropriate weapons for this particular shoot. Extra glitter and stickers obviously.

With our weapons complete next came our outfits. Swimsuits, sunglasses and a t-shirt to try and keep warm – after all it was only 9 degrees outside. Funnily enough I had managed to match my bikini to the hair bow I was wearing as well as my eyeshadow.

We then began moving the props into position, unfortunately I forgot to lift my phone so I don’t have any selfies to share of the actual shoot. But Lee and Jazz got plenty so I’ll be sure to link to their pictures ^_^

Once we were thoroughly soaked through and freezing we ran back inside to have a shower and warm up. Light bulb! Shower shoot! So on top of the water fight Jazz and I got to have even more fun splashing around in the shower. Which was my first fully nude shoot! How exciting is that xD

Finally we settled down and ordered some food, the pictures all look amazing and I can’t wait to share them with you ^_^

18.4.18 – Radiomoths (aka Lee Jones) – “City Mischief”

This was my first time working with Lee but he’s a photographer that I’ve been dying to work with for far too long haha. If you happen to be a Catty regular then there’s a good chance he’s taken your picture at some point.

This shoot was mostly just for fun and didn’t really have a particular theme. It was definitely more of a “getting to know you” kind of day. We wandered around Glasgow Green and down some back streets taking pictures of anything that caught our eye.

Would love to work with Lee again, the pictures we got were fantastic plus he got them back to me in no time at all! Which is amazing. Absolute pleasure to work with.

I now have the pleasure of hosting for both Lee and Jazz as they continue on their tour, which is super cool. They’ve been fantastic and even made an awesome vegan hoisin duck dinner ^_^

11.4.18 – Ronnie – “cute n killer”

Ronnie is a photographer I’ve worked with for a fair while now and he’s been great to work with. We’ve both learnt so much working together and it really shows with each new shoot. For our most recent shoot I decided to try and go with the theme of “cute n killer” – this was comprised of two separate outfits that tried to be either very cute or totally killer.


I had a lot of fun with my makeup for this shoot, going bright and bold as ever with my eye shadow. Plus I got to show off some lovely dresses – benefits of shooting indoors, it’s always warm enough for dresses – as well as my Irregular Choice shoes (that I’m definitely not obsessed with…).

Should be getting the pictures back shortly but I’ll be sure to announce when they’re being released on my Patreon.

Go give Ronnie some attention –

So let’s talk about my looks for this shoot:

Cute: 30185269_999659323519805_2023061137_n

For my “cute” look I went with some over the top pink eye shadow which I attempted to add a little flower to. It’s definitely not a professional “look” but I was pretty happy with how it turned out. I think it definitely fell into the “cute” realm.

My cute outfit was a pretty strapless dress which is by Apricot and I bought it from New Look a year or two ago. For anyone with a bigger bust wondering how I managed to find a strapless bra let me tell you, it’s agony but so worth it. Not that I was showing it off in this particular shoot but the strapless bra is by Wonderbra and if you can put up with your ribs being crushed by the weight of your breasts then I highly recommend it haha. No but it is a really high quality bra and I do recommend it as it has been the only strapless bra I’ve felt comfortable wearing.

The shoes for my “cute” section were a pair of my Irregular Choice shoes. Honestly since finding this brand I’ve fallen in love. All the shoes I’ve bought from them have been so beautiful and so comfortable. You should definitely go check out all of the amazing shoes on:

Killer: 30176774_999659300186474_1316495869_o


Moving on to my “killer” look, I tried to do a cool mix of gold and purple eyeshadow. It didn’t turn out exactly as I wanted it to but I was still pretty happy with it. Not my best makeup but it was good fun to try it.

For the outfit I wore a faux leather dress from New Look which makes so much noise when you move it it haha. Accompanying the lovely dress was some gorgeous lingerie which I had a great time showing off. The lingerie was a set from Bravissimo which has been the best place for me to find lingerie, can’t recommend them highly enough.

Finished off with a different pair of Irregular Choice shoes haha. My black cat high heels, which are too awesome to not show off at every possible opportunity.

And that was my shoot with Ronnie ^_^

Hopefully the pictures will be sorted soon and then I can release them for you lovelies to enjoy- they will of course be appearing on my Patreon first so make sure to go check it out!
