SHE CAME FROM OUTER SPACE!!!!! This shoot was an absolute joy to create! The space helmet was made by a friend of Hexcelle’s and he graciously let us use it to create this super fun scifi inspired retrofuturistic series!
Inspired by bad 50s/60s science fiction and horror films and retro television shows. We shot with Russel also so we have a whole second chunk of photos from this day!
For Hexcelle’s makeup and hair in this shoot I kept to a varied purple color range! Lots of glitter and touches of metallics and black. I contoured Hexcelle’s face with purple and finished the look with a spray of star shapes to further add to her alien aesthetic.
I wound Hexcelle’s hair around coated wire to make the twin alien-antlers and then festooned them with stars and glitter clips! Super easy and it looks adorable.
THANK YOU to Hexcelle for modeling inside a giant plexiglass ball that made it impossible to hear anything and to my brother for also shooting with us! This was one of those shoot days where everything just feels so *right* and fun. 🙂
