I took part in a really fun photoshoot a few days ago and I thought you guys might like to see some behind the scenes pictures from it! It was a really fun project to be involved in, for a up-and-coming clothing line called SICKBOYGIRL, set up by Michelle Campion,
an artist from Galway. She does these really killer illustrations of all different things (unicorns, cartoon characters, sugar skulls, you name it ) and their going to be featured on a collection of clothing ranging from T-shirts, cute crop-tops, skirts and a long sleeve shirt/light sweater.
I modeled the prototypes for her, with the very talented Sean McCormack
, behind the camera, a photographer I have been lucky enough to have collaborated with a few times before. I absolutely loved the concept of the shoot, it was very edgy, almost sci-fi themed, with avant garde makeup and simple straight hair. My favourite types of shoots are always ones where the brief is a bit wacky, its so much more fun than ones where you have to just stand there and try to look pretty. (emphasis on try
there!) Here are some of the snaps we took on location:
Blue lips, mad eyebrows, and some face crystals ~ Love it 🙂
Here’s myself, Michelle and Sean having a laugh together after the shoot. We made a good team!
I also wanted to show you guys my nails from the shoot, aren’t they wicked? They were made specially by Dolly Nails
, I loved them! They arrived really long so I was able to shape them really pointed for the shoot. Given that its a really impractical shape to wear everyday, I have since filed them down to a reasonable size 🙂
The first photo at the top is one of the finished shots, I’m really happy with it, What do you guys think? I’ll post up the rest as soon as I get my hands on them!
