Queen of the Night music video

Many Plumed Serpent headdresses grace the scenes in my music video, Queen of the Night. Queen of the night is a night blooming Cereus, a delicate cactus flower that blooms under the stars, answering to the call of the moon.
The divine feminine is alive in this video. It was created by a team of women, all amazing and talented in their own right. It was so fun to shoot!!

Align Gallery Show

10417755_10152941898689370_7355517986064373090_nIt was an honor to be in a gallery show with my dear co-creative partner Sequoia Emmanuelle in Los Angeles. A big thank you to Align Gallery owner Selamawit Mekonen! The beautiful glamazons who are our friends and muses mingled with the crowd while decked out in wild headdresses and snakeskin catsuits.

 

Sequoia’s lavish photographs graced the walls, as did my latest creations. We also held a viewing of my new music , Queen of the Night video release for my musical project Maxilla. The video is full of headdresses of course, featuring our glamazons and directed by Sequoia and Jaq Jaq.

Sequoia Emmanuelle is an artist, photographer, collaborator, and dear friend who has been a great inspiration to me. We first met when I hired her for one of my first Plumed Serpent photo shoots in April of 2011, and the experience took my work to another level. She brought me into her artistic sphere, sharing a world of vibrant color, glamour, beauty, style, and empowerment. Our collaborations continue to grow into something that moves well beyond fashion or glamour, tapping into a deeper level of expression. It’s soul expression, it’s shamanic, and it’s beyond anything I imagined when we first began collaborating. I feel like we are only getting started.

 

I never expected that a photo shoot could be the element that facilitates the highest expression of my headdresses. We create a world around them, with so many elements and talented people involved: hair stylists, make up artists, models, styling, location, set design, headdresses, and the eye that captures it all. When shooting finally begins it’s exhilarating. And when the entire process is complete, I am always blown away by the beauty of the images, and the synergy it took to make it all happen. Sequoia creates images that are more like paintings, avant garde works of art imbued with her magic and creativity.

 

On March 6th 2014, an eclectic crowd of gypsies, artists, dancers, and fashionable wild beauties gathered at Unici Casa in Los Angeles to celebrate Sequoia’s Kickstarter campaign to fund her first photography book release. It was a success! The book should be in our hot little hands around December. I am so honored and happy to have one of my favorite images of my headdresses on the cover. And so proud of my soul sister!
