Behind the Scenes Lost Doll Shoot

The woods was especially pretty that day!

Recently we set out with model Ellie and photographer Photosphynx to make use of the gorgeous autumn foliage! It was a small shoot, where we transformed Ellie into a broken doll abandoned in the woods.

All serious all the time, that’s how we do things ’round here (not). 😛

ellie for gloomthEllie made the perfect eerily beautiful doll. She wore our “Abbey” blouse and “Dahlia” skirt with striped otk socks from Sock Dreams!

It was lovely being out among the trees that day, even if the ground was cold and wet under the blanket of leaves. I was promptly distracted by mosses and fungus, of course.

I did a sort of cracked-porcelain makeup on Ellie. It was a happy experiment as I was so sure it’d look silly and costume-y, but I think it turned out quite well despite my misgivings about that whole broken-doll cliché.

We’ll be back to shooting *often* very soon, I am still recharging and enjoying autumn.
