As part of our marathon day of photoshoot-ing we did some quick photos of Gloomth’s new “Every Day is Halloween” dress. Being the least-warm of all 3 outfits we did this series a bit quicker than the other two of the day.
For this look we kept it pretty casual! We incorporated the lace/net sleeves and same makeup as our “Gauntlet” look. We didn’t realize til we went to shoot this look that I’d totally forgotten to bring any sort of jewelry for this outfit! Oops. The velvet choker is actually a velvet headband I was wearing that we tied as a makeshift choker in the photos. It worked quite well I think!
The November sun was so weak and golden it turned the entire park into a beautiful dream-like setting. We found some of the last remaining autumn leaves as a backdrop.
We have a few more from this series in our flickr album!
Thank you Hexcelle for braving this- the chilliest of the 3 looks!🙂
Our last official Gloomth shoot of 2016!!!!!!!!!!!! It’s amazing how quickly this year has blazed by, it feels as though it was *just* August a moment ago and now it’s nearly 2017.
For my last shoot of the year I wanted to experiment a little, to set the tone for exploring doing more unique photos for the label next year! This was my first time shooting with colored light bulbs (red and yellow) and using tilt/shift effects in post production.
Kuroihitomi modeled for me in a mess of twinkly lights, confetti, balloons, and tinsel curtain.
The concept for this shoot was “After a NYE Party”, so a bit blurry, a bit dazzled by the colors. Lost in the mess after the guests leave, with the glow of the city transforming everything into a weird dream.
For the makeup I went with a messy sort of holiday party look- red lips and dark blown-out eyeshadow. I finished it with several kinds of glitter smeared on her upper cheekbones and into the hair line. I also threw tinsel confetti over Kuroihitomi before shooting so it appeared as if she’d been rolling about in the mess.
There are quite a few more of these photos in the flickr album also!
Thank you to Kuroihitomi for modeling for me for this experiment! I’m so excited about these photos and can’t wait to try some new styles next year!
It’s the holiday season! The nauseating blend of fake cinnamon scents, spray glittered everything, and papercuts from cheap wrapping paper have worn us out so we’re planning a little holiday.😉
First off our deadline for in time for Dec 25th orders is DECEMBER 9th. After that we can’t guarantee arrival in time for the holidays on anything but in-stock items (coloring books, cards, hair accessories etc).
Gloomth’s production will be closed from December 22nd to January 2nd. We’ll still be answering emails and such but we won’t be sewing or mailing anything during that time.
Tis the season to attend countless events you have almost no interest in! Work parties, spouse’s work parties, family get-together’s with people you won’t see the rest of the year etc. These events are a great chance to dress up a little and enjoy the season where extra sparkle and glitter aren’t “over-doing-it”.😉
Here are some outfit ideas using Gloomth designs that’ll keep your alternative and unique style intact while attending every holiday soiree!
A little red, a little black- Gloomth’s “Ember” dress is the perfect go-to style for the holiday season. In it’s lush red crinkle taffeta it suits the season beautifully, and it has lots of Gothic details to make it really special. For a holiday party we’d pair it with loads of black sparkling jewelry, maybe a show stopping tiered beaded choker and matching black satin gloves! Finish with black patent heels and lace stockings for a decadent, and classy Gothic party outfit.
Silvery December Moonlight– Gloomth’s “Seance” dress is a gorgeous piece for a seasonal soiree. With it’s silvery lace details it works beautifully paired with silver or pewter sparkling jewelry. Layer a black velvet shrug or faux fur stole for a vintage touch and black seamed stockings. Finish with black heels and dark red lipstick.
Holiday Flapper Style– We love blending historical fashions with alternative ones here! Our “Charlotte” dress would be adorable in a flapper inspired style. Load on the black eye makeup and pair it with long dangling necklaces and short gloves. Finish with t-strap pumps for a dance-all-night vibe.
Holiday Doll- Gloomth’s “Carmilla” dress is the ultimate holiday party look. Lush velvet paired with black cotton and heaps of decadent details! We love it for a holiday event paired with lace stockings, platform dolly shoes, and lace gloves. Finish with a veiled party hat and dark makeup for a devastating party ensemble.
What are you wearing this season?
Our “Seaside” photoshoot was the third look of the day, and probably my favorite of the 3. The sun was just beginning to set over the duck pond and the light became liquid and warm. It was absolutely beautiful and Hexcelle looked adorable in our updated “Nautical” dress!
You can see how much fun we were having in these photos I think! Lots of laughing and movement, exactly the best way to spend a work afternoon.🙂
There are so many more photos in this series which you can see in our flickr album! I’m so thrilled with how these turned out.🙂
Thank you to Alchemy of England for the stunning bracelet shown in the outfit and to Hexcelle for marathon shooting with me.
On what seems like it may have been the last really warm day of 2016 we did a whole afternoon of photoshoots with Gloomth Girl Hexcelle! It was so great to get outside and try and capture so many outfits and concepts in one day. The result is 3 different looks and so many great photos! I’m going to write a bit about the inspirations and looks we created for these shoots this week.🙂
Our “Gauntlet” shoot was the first of the 3 looks we did that day! I layered our new “Chapel” dress over intricate fishnet sleeves for some extra detail (and warmth). The gorgeous black skull shoulder-piece was created by Hexcelle for her Halloween outfit and when I saw it I just knew it had to be in one of our shoots! You maybe recognize my metal armor gauntlet from previous photoshoots, it’s appeared semi-frequently.
For the makeup in these shoots I wanted to create 1 look that could be updated easily on location that’d suit 3 different concepts. I went with a soft black eyeshadow with a white accent, as well as several layers of lashes. For the “Gauntlet” series we incorporated a pair of vampire fangs and green lipstick from NYX. The gorgeous choker shown was provided by Alchemy of England.
When shooting this series I wanted to find natural backdrops in soft reds/golds/greys to really make the black dress and details pop. The light was simply beautiful and we really lucked out with a nearly empty park near my home!🙂
There are lots more photos in this series in our flickr album.
Thanks to Hexcelle and Alchemy of England for making this shoot so amazing!!!!
