I combined a corset worn by model and make up artist Melissa Leslie with a corset designed by Dianna of Starkers corsetry a dear local friend in Toronto with so much talent and not enough exposure. I then blended a background of a church photo I had in photoshop. And yes that is a real weight of over 100 pounds with the bar.
