“Fashion shouldn’t be taken too seriously. You’ve got to have fun with it to make it work!
Think of all the endless possibilities of what you can create. Let your imagination run riot. Have fun, glam up - Love it! Rock it! Own it!"
Evanescence (noun) definition:
1. The act or state of vanishing away; disappearance.
2. The event of fading and gradually vanishing from sight.
Evanescence’s “Bring Me To Life”:
How can you see into my eyes, like open doors
Leading you down into my core, where I’ve become so numb, without a soul
My spirit’s sleeping somewhere cold, until you find it there and lead it back home.
Is there any way back for this ‘Fallen Angel?
I wanted to set an ethereal scene - spooky and ever so slightly other-worldly and unsettling. No fluffy, dainty, cherubic angels for #TeamHeaven! Well not this month!! Don’t get me wrong, we love a bit of fluff and cuteness, but we also love to put our own creative twist (emphasis on twist!) on an idea. We wanted our wings to belong to someone dark and damaged. It’s all about the Yin/Yang; duality; embracing the light AND the darkness. Cue our very own Fallen Angel.
This month’s brief delighted Beth - our resident special effects makeup artist - as this gave her licence to go mad...and go mad she did.
Armed with the biggest and most daunting contact lenses I’ve ever seen, which covered my entire eye, she set to work, paring back on the angelic, and ramping up the apocalyptic. This was going to be one angel who was not going to gradually fade away and disappear from sight!
Hilary also had licence to go mad and bad, turning a pretty white wig into a foreboding cascade of curls, complete with evil horns entwined with a halo of leather barbed wire.
The only angelic remnants were the flowing skirt and an off the shoulder top in a beautiful white holographic/iridescent fabric, custom made by Coquetryclothing.com
And what is an angel without their wings? Picture my husband’s face when I asked him to make me a pair of angel wings. Yep. It went down well!!! However, once he had finished spitting feathers, he rose to the challenge and made me the most glorious wings, elevating our shoot to another level and completing my vision for the ‘Fallen Angel’. ***Schmaltz alert*** I think this proves he really is the wind beneath my wings! Thank you darling xx
