I love when we get a request to shoot a model it gives us an opportunity to really show our artistic ability. When Alex contacted us we were delighted, as we thought about the shoot we envisioned a beautifully dressed girl in just the most crazy place- ruble, abandon building’s, garbage ect… We also thought how cool it would be to make our own dress?! We threw the ideal out to Alex and she was more than willing to try something out of the ordinary. She replies with “I’ll make my dress!” Alex came over the morning of the shoot with her homemade dress; the top was newspaper and the bottom totally made out of garbage bags! We loved the results! Not only did we photograph her in this cosplay format- but also try different dresses, an old prom dress, and a Marilyn Monroe dress Alex owned. The location was perfect, even in destruction there is beauty. We were lucky to also have some great Graffiti in some of the old structures.
What a Fun shoot- We also can not forget the help of her friend Kayla from Rehab Cosmetics she did an awesome job with her makeup!
