Only had about 5 minutes to take photos in this light, it was a challenge! They remind me a bit of 'Club Silencio' David Lynch's Mullholland DriveX
|I'm wearing an amazing 1960s lilac lurex shirt-dress with one of my new leather badges.|
I've been having fun playing around with lighting and trying to create atmosphere in recent photos. Wearing clothes can be like getting into character, which I love!
My favourite thing was to dress up in costumes as a child, best outfits were: an old red velvet curtain as a cape (naturally); wearing old pieces of fabric draped around me toga/angel style (I still have a piece of gold material I used to wear wrapped across my body like a sash); a Jasmine from Aladdin costume (the outfits in the film were way better, my favourite outfit of hers being when she was a slave to Jafar) and my ballet-wear/costumes (I remember in particular my favourite item was a sheer black wrap-around skirt which secured with velcro, I still feel really sad I don't have it anymore! Where do these things disappear to?!). But I haven't really spent much time just messing around with clothes in quite a while! Where's the fun gone y'know?!
So I'm aiming to get a bit more playful again - off I go to the dressing up box! X

I've been really enjoying making these leather badges recently, so great to be able to make something relatively quickly and then to wear it! A really satisfying thing. X
