Last week I went to the beautiful Estudios Sá da Bandeira to take new pictures for their website after their extreme make-over. This recording studio is loaded with sexy vintage gear and has a genuine 70’s rock’n’roll vibe. Edit: I’m updating this 5 years later and from what I’ve heard they had to move out […]Keep Reading

Remember when I mentioned a trip to Madrid to film the footage for an interactive video with 3Clic? Now you can see the final result of what we did over there, right here – different color and everything, look at my mighty blogging skills! One of the things that makes me weirdly proud is how […]Keep Reading
Magnética Magazine published my latest editorial, and an interview with me – in portuguese, sorry foreign readers! If you want me to translate it or something say so in the comments, it’s a mighty long interview. Luísa Cativo tem 25 anos e vive a vida no formato 35mm. Formação não lhe falta: Artes Visuais e […]Keep Reading
One of the awesome people I met during my stay on the other side of the pond is Sailor Sam. Sam’s only 22, but he already has a lot going on. He created and manages his own brand of skateboards, Fancy Skateboards, he’s a great skateboarder — as seen in the video bellow — he studies […]Keep Reading

For my own pleasure and possibly anyone who stumbles upon this post: here’s some GIANT PONIES! All blinged and out by various plastic artists. It made me very happy that they opted for the classic pony shape from the 80’s.Keep Reading
People were pretty crafty. It seems like the darker the situation gets, the more creative people get. I really do hope we eventually get out of this black-hole. Not just the country, the way society works needs some heavy remodelling.Keep Reading
Today’s goodies. Mom’s epic three-layer ice cream. A hyper-caloric marvelous treat, made of – from bottom to top – coffee, caramel and chocolate. It has millions of eggs, sugar, white chocolate, calories, cholesterol, and it’s an orgy in your mouth. Pardon the cliché.Keep Reading
or “If Rambo was a sexy female vampire” – which one is the catchiest? Because it’s what I spent most of my last week doing with the folks from Lula Gigante, the italian director Marco Marchesi and the adorable actresses and actors.
For those of you who don’t know, I’m a make-up artist as well and I know a bit about characterization / special FX make-up. So basically, last week I was in charge of all the fake blood and sweat on set.
Here are a few pictures of the actresses in the first two days – on the third day of shooting we were at a dark abandoned factory at night, which means no pictures, and on the fourth I forgot my camera and that made me very sad. The location was beautiful, I want to go back there soon and have a picnic.
GRRRL RIOT y’all! Keep Reading
