Introducing our first photoshoot of 2016! I’m so excited to get back to creating these weird glimpses into the Gloomth Universe. This shoot was a lot of fun to create and Vanessa Walsh did an amazing job bringing life to this character!
The concept I had for this shoot was “A Monster In My Closet”- the idea of transforming in your private space into your dream self, even if that self is scary or unpredictable, how clothing can effect your personality and make you more fearsome.
You might recognize the extra-eye makeup from my Halloween costume (I often test looks on myself before applying them to models during our shoots). For the rest of the look I stacked cut up eyelashes in heaps around her eyes and used smeary tinted lipgloss to create an unsettling vicious mouth on our monster-doll-baby. For accessories I heaped tons of old toys and weird bits as a crown on her head and matched those to a pair of really tacky bunny-head wrist cuffs.
We shot this series in my bedroom, the background behind her with the dangling fabrics and dolls is there 24/7. All we did was add some pillows and toys and clothing to the floor to give it a messy bedroom feeling. 🙂
Thank you to Vanessa Walsh for modeling for us!!! 😀
