New “Antique Circus Clown” Photoshoot

Send in the clowns! It’s been a second since I’ve done any clown-themed photoshoots for Gloomth and I was excited to create this antique clown inspired photoshoot with model Giggles. Looking back I have been doing variations of clown themes in our Gloomth shoots since about 2016, that’s a lot of red cheek circles. 😉

Giggles is wearing our “Scary Clowns” print dress in it’s sleeveless version! This dress is available on our site in sizes XS-5XL and also with long sleeves.

My inspiration for this shoot was to create something less “fashion clown” and more reminiscent of Edwardian clowns and vintage styles. I added net sleeves, ruffled collar, striped stockings, a light petticoat, and a vintage horn as accessories! I filled Giggles’ hair with a flower crown I made out of old millinery flowers and gold star hair clips. I wanted to keep the colors muted and the focus on the chaotic feeling of the fabric of our dress.

Thank you to Giggles for letting me get back into doing makeup for our shoots in the most fun way!
