I really enjoy collaborating with other photographers and I believe I can do that by being more than just a model. That is why I always provide my own hair, makeup, and styling for all my shoots. Personally, this is how I feel I can equally contribute creatively to the shoot.
I worked on this set with photographer Henry Myint for Gilded Magazine. We named the set "Vermelho." I admit, I am not very creative when naming sets.
Clothing - I found an old pink lace dress for 2 dollars at a thrift store and dyed it deep red. Then I took red glitter spray paint and sprayed a full can on the dress.
Crown- For the first crown, I hand painted white silk roses red, burgundy, and black. I used old jewelry scraps for the second crown.
Makeup -The rhinestones were glued on one by one, which took about an hour, even with help from the photographer. I used metallic pigments on my lips and eyes.
Overall the hard work and weeks of preparation paid off!
