Happy Halloween! My annual Halloween shoot is a bit smaller this year since I've been so busy with other projects, including Saints - while you check that out, you should go see Peregrine Honig's amazing show, Unicorn at Haw Contemporary, if you're in Kansas City! The shoot was a new experience for me, with so many people being involved and me not knowing how anything was going to turn out until I was there. Luckily, it turned out pretty magical looking!
My Halloween shoot only has two looks, the first being the crystal devil look I talked about in my last post. Then, a look inspired by the movie Showgirls and the Goddess character, specifically the parts where they show a scene with Cristal as Goddess, then Nomi as Goddess and how the makeup and the way the scenes are set up to be similar, etc. Very shiny, very sparkly. My mom said my face looked like plastic in the Showgirls look, it was strange how much it actually did. I think it was just a lucky day of having non-oily skin and not having to use much powder. I'm not listing the products I used because I'm evil and lazy.
I wore crystals all over my face to a party as a crystallized devil - complete with horns, a vintage dress that has metal, spherical buttons down the front and is moth-eaten to hell, and shiny faux leather, thigh high platforms. I shot photos that night but wanted to use natural lighting with a different outfit so I slept in it. It wasn't the most pleasant experience but worth it! I planned on including these with my Halloween shoot but I like them on their own. For the look, I used 1200+ Crystazzi (knockoff Swarovski) crystals and a ton of eyelash glue. It took six hours to apply.
Feel free to correct me if I'm wrong with the title.
