This year was my first WGT, and it was a strange one! I was determined to go, even though I was and am very ill. Had a good time, but only a few pictures to share. The first outfit is all by me including hat, the second outfit has a skirt by Skeletons in the Closet and a thrifted jacket. Here we go:
What do you get when you combine 6 awesome photographers, 14 selected models and one beautiful location for a Steampunk/Dieselpunk shoot? An epic day with epic pictures, that’s for sure. T(h)ank you, Cpt Constance Bashford, for organising this day!
My outfit was inspired by Tank Girl, with my own steampunk twist to it. Did I mention it was super difficult to model with glasses when you’re not used to it?
Here’s an early selection, I will add more pictures when I receive them.
I never do cosplays. And I had two infected eyes. And I had been ill for 2 months, making preparations impossible. But missing the 10th and last Gala Nocturna was not an option, and it was a beautiful party.
My dear friend Fred (Lux Immortalis Photography) took my picture, and I am happy that I can add this look to my portfolio. The kimono turned out really close to the original worn by Gaga in her role as the Countess from AHS, the rest of the styling I had to improvise for health reasons.
From a very productive shoot with Laura from Laura Sheridan’s Art, a couple of the more toned down portraits: ‘The Wise’ and ‘The Dreamer’.
In the first two pictures I am wearing some pretty jewelry from Godesign Steampunk & Vintage Jewelry. You might recognise the deer from the last three pictures, it is from Ikea! Dress and harness from Laura’s prop/outfit collection, hair and makeup by me.
A couple of special portraits by Laura Sheridan’s Art! One of the special things in this shoot was that we actually lit the candles for a few seconds, and the flames were not photoshopped in. Laura knows about working with fire, so even though it was exciting, it wasn’t really scary.
The candle shoulderpiece and red moonbelt were made by me, and the pretty steampunk jewelry I am wearing in the third picture is by Godesign Steampunk & Vintage Jewelry. I did my own make up, but the styling was something Laura and I did together.
One might recognise the outfit in the last picture, it is actually the same as in my last blog post. It is great to see how a photographer can change an outfit into their own perception of it!
