I NO LONGER will be attending group photoshoot events or workshop events for portfolio building. If you want me at an event or want to use my garments, my rates are listed below.

My Current Schedule/list of Appearances:

Rental Rates
Rentals are for photoshoots ONLY. I do not rent out for parties, soirees, galas, shindigs, hootenannies or hoedowns.

Rates for models:
If you are a model who wants to rent a look from me, you can expect a complete look - a dress/jacket/skirt/blouse, etc., including a petticoat and accessories.
$50/look for a 3-day rental (pick-up the day before the shoot, drop-off the day after the shoot)

Rates for photographers:
If you want to use my work for a shoot, and do not have a model or an MUAH team, I can provide all of these.
$200/look includes everything in the aforementioned model package

Rates for events:
If you want my work to be shown at an event, I can provide models, wardrobe, and full hair and makeup.

No trades. No loans.

Unless you are a photographer on my Wish List, you will have to pay these rates. Wondering if you're on my Wish List? Just ask!

W h a t ' s I n A N a m e ?
I am inspired by folklore, by the tales that evoke superstition and woe. The name of my brand comes from the story of a Werewolf and a Princess, the Swedish folk band Garmarna's song "Varulven." The Princess gets lost in the woods and happens upon a wolf-man set to prey upon her. She pleads with the creature, "Oh dear wolf, please don't bite me, I will give you my Silver Gown (Silversark)" She offers her silver shoes and even her golden crown, but even that won't sate the beast. All it wants is her blood.

I find this song to be a perfect blend of what it is I try to create. I am fascinated by the macabre, but also by the pageantry and elegance of historical costume, namely Elizabethan through Victorian times. I strive to make beautiful as well as atypical clothing.

A s A D e s i g n e r
I'm a seamstress wanting to get a more professional portfolio together. I have been sewing for ten years, and started up Silversärk in 2005 to provide high-quality Lolita (and other style) garments at economical prices. I sell things at my Etsy store that I made on a whim (my website is currently down but I am working on it), and I also gladly work on commission. I feel everyone should wear clothing as unique as they are, and take pride in my one-of-a-kind pieces.

I have collaborated with many Model Mayhem models and photographers. If you want to model my items but are not near my location, I do offer a rental system and am willing to send items if you coordinate the photoshoot. I can send you 1-3 items depending on the concept, and request that all items be returned within three weeks unless otherwise noted. I also ask that before I send any items, I am informed as to the photographer doing the shoot (if you are a model), or the model(s) doing the shoot (if you are a photographer/mua/whatever).

A s A P h o t o g r a p h e r
I'm kind of a jack of all trades: I love doing photography, I can do makeup/styling, as well as modeling.

Most of my photoshoots will be limited to personal projects and editorial ideas. I prefer for any model wanting to shoot with me to have a friend or escort along. I am not picky with a model's size or ethnicity. I'd prefer to shoot models ages 15-30 from sizes 0-14 but I am willing to make exceptions.

I am NOT currently able to compensate any models or photographers financially nor with wardrobe; I'm more looking to create mutually beneficial relationships with models and photographers.

A s A M o d e l
Since my move to Milwaukee and with the growth of my business, my own modeling will be very limited, mostly for personal projects or my own fashion shows. I am open to hearing your ideas, though!

I'm only going to be updating my "Runway" and "Publications" lists. The amount of models and photographers I've worked with is insane and grows faster than I care to update my MM page. By now you can probably guess that I'm good to work with and am doing something right if I've worked with this many people and have as much experience as I do.
