Okay,

Maybe the topic is a bit too late, though I was looking through my iPhoto and found the Behind The Scene on the making one of the rubric in my magazine. What do I do for a living? I wish to make the world peace and care less about money. LOL. 
What I do for living is to create certain topic and theme for FAR magazine, which this media accommodate the young to senior artists mainly in Indonesia. Also the connection between the socioculture nowadays. When we talk about art, it is very wide. So my job is to make sure every aspect of art; graphic, illustration, installation, music, performance even fashion, is to be discussed in an easy understandable and interesting way :) At least I try it to be, and I am still trying my best ;)

FAR magazine covers

So anyway, I was going through photos I had and there was this photo session that really stick on me. There were plenty photo shoot that make an expression on me but I am eager to show you this one.
It happened after I met up with my diving friend, Syeny Tjandra. We were talking about diving, since it has been one of our hobbies, she suggested about having an underwater photo session. Which when it happened I totally forgot to call her!! (sorryyyy!! -__-)
Then we arranged to meet the right underwater photographers. And published it on FAR magazine 11th edition. Where we have one of our guitarist legend, Setiawan Djodi.


The session was in the Senayan pool, it was so hot that day that I sweat like as if I am in a sauna room wearing a sweater. My little sister, Canti Tachril was one of the model, which she was so eager to try this new experience. Since it would be impossible to borrow some designer collection because we are going to be inside the pool, so Reni, my assistant, and I decided to use cloths. WHICH, was very heavy in the water!! xD 

She was the one that jump on the pool first with the bluish flounder make up. She was wearing mask when jumping in and then I realized there were some orange color coming out from the mask when she talked to me. So I asked her to remove the mask, and her nose was bleeding (!!). Everyone was panic and there was this lady that ran from the edge of the place (which was soooooo far away) and grabbed my sister, pulled her out the pool. And my sister gave me the look with her confused face, "why everyones making a panic attack out of this?". In our family, having a nose bleed is normal. So that explains her confusedness.

The photo shoot took about 8 hours, total with the settings and make up plus getting the model to be in the right place. Since they don't use mask down there, they cannot see anything. Total blur. The photo shoot went well even with the loooong hours of working trying to get it right and making people comfortable. It was fun! And the next day my sister was temporarily blind for the whole day!

Here are some photos I took myself. I was basically swimming along without any BCD. Holding my breath down there to make sure the cloth fell the right way and taking these shots ;)

 It was a great experience! And I wish one day I can be the one photographed ;)
We had fun, until the sky turned dark and the pool was giving us the eerie feeling~

17th April 2011

Sunday morning.
My mother always go bikin on Sunday with her gang. And the gang called BBC (Batavia Biking Club). This ladies are not only cycling every Sunday, most of them usually show up or participate at social gathering such as charity gala, art social events and many other things. You can find ladies from different background from housewives, artist to socialites.

So, this time our cycling took place at BSD (Bumi Serpong Damai) where to go to that area take about 45 minutes. We got there about 6.30 ish in the morning and it was fun!!


Until our last round suddenly Canti, my sister, took me by surprise by riding so close to me until her stem bar got caught to mine and I had to thrown myself away from my bike. I basically fell hard from my bike!!
And one of my parents friend took a photo of my sister and I on the ground with Canti's right knee bleeding and little holes on my pants.



bruised and scratched 

I was trying to protect my face unconciously that my right elbow hit the ground first then the back of my shoulder. Got up a little shocked and Canti was repeatedly saying Sorry. lol

Got back to the golf club house, Canti was maybe still in shock after the fell and betadine incident. She sat down straight away inside our car and suddenly got up start screaming about how she start seeing stars and everything. Apparently she was having a little hard time to breathe. Everytime you do a heavy exercise before stopping to rest you need at least to breath deeply and make sure oxygen comes through your system. If not, this could occur,

Last but not least is the BEST part. FOOD at the end of our cycling routine.


Later at night, went to Om Zen (our close family friend who is a healer by practicing aqupressure combined with chiropractic). He cracked back all dislocated bones and joints from the fall.

-___- even my jaw... *sob sob

Lesson learnt from this experience :

Do NOT cycle close too Canti

LOL

Cheers!

At last!!!!

The last of bridal fashion show for Bazaar wedding 2011. I have been looking and picking on these shots and eventually got annoyed by how many photos I took, lol.
That is what happened when you are indecisive, and I am very indecisive, also because I want to show whoever lurking on my blog what I saw that day. With its complete collections. Ahaahhaa~

So anyway, the last show was given to Irsan, which to be honest I have never heard about him. In the end of the show he did not show himself as well. Although at the start it seems this person is going to give splendid collections because there were Oscar Lawalatta and other fashion people. So, fingers cross you will enjoy the collection like I did.

Note: The theme is wedding Couture, so don't expect something normal bridal would wear ;)







 
















Exactly, something you won't wear on your wedding day. Or maybe you would!? :) I like the sweater top with the frill on the bottom, the one that wears the cross necklace. After my wedding day I would probably chop the bottom and make it a sweater instead :D hehehhehe~

What about you?


Cheers,
Rani

Rusly Tjohnardi was on the last row on the runway. I have been so hungry and tired since the event was delayed and late for around more than half an hour! It was on Sunday night too, although waiting for the show was worth it. The song, blocking, bridal collections and the theme were beautifully presented.

The theme was fairy-tale, with a lot of sponsors to help the shows including nail artist, wig, make up artist and decoration! I personally love the trees background, I feel like stealing one for my room.






From the blocking this short dresses collection come out on the same part. It seems
these 6 dresses can be use as the bridesmaid's dress. With a lot of draping and and layers make sentimental and fresh look  



can't go overboard with the insect or creatures accessories, 
since its a fairy-tale ;)






Details on this dress never fails to WOW me, the elegant tulle scarf look on the neck and 
the crystal embroidery fall in the right places. Even the bottom and wide of the dress.
It might look corny on a normal dress, again, it goes well for a wedding dress. Not
too much attributes, enough glamour




The last dress.
Maybe take off the over accessorized tiara ;)

Cheers!
