In All Seriousness

It's been a while! A hectic year behind me, finished my second
year of fashion school with flying colours and traveled down to Western
Cape for a wedding. 

I realise I haven't posted in ages, and I apologise, so here is a shoot from September
where I practiced Special Effects MakeUp as part of our MakeUp class. As soon as I
heard we'd be doing special effects, I wanted to do the Joker, but Halloween style. 
So this shoot was my test run:

I will post some instagram shots of the final face for makeup class,
along with additional looks I created to practice with.

This was a pretty emotional shoot for me to do. Was
going through a rough patch and finally got to listen
to Troye Sivan's album Blue Neighbourhood. This made
every emotion I felt exemplified and I needed it out. 

I struggled with this shoot, because may of the shots were so
hard to take due to the amount of emotion showing that I couldn't
include them...

Troye's single Wild plays a huge role in the shoot, along with
Too long till I drown in your handsToo long since I've been a fool Never knew loving could hurt this good, ohAnd it drives me wildBend and break But I can't turn awayYou're driving me wild You make my heart shake

We're speeding through red lights into paradise
'Cause we've no time for getting old
Mortal bodies, timeless souls
Cross your fingers, here we go...

This shoot's mood was directly inspired by Beyonce's song of
the same name, hence the title of the song being the same. I was
tempted to a shoot inspired for her music video for almost a year
but I needed it to be exactly as I envisioned it, and that's why it only
happened now. 

Apart from the video, there are certain lyrics that also inspired the
shoot, like 

"...when my voice is screaming out to my own ears, that
feels different to when I hear yours"


"And I thought the world would revolved without us..."

 Something so personal and deep about the song
resonate within in me that I can't really put any words
to, so I figured it would be best to put it out in pictures...

Ponderings of A Gay-sha; Memoirs Of A Gay-sha Part III

My Chinese culture has been playing a huge part in my
studies as a fashion design student and so this shoot was
my visual manifestation of the impact. 

I give you Ponderings of A Gay-sha...

Memoirs Of A Gay-sha: Warrior

Been incredibly inspired by Asian fashion of a late, 
and decided to do a continuation of the first shoot, 
Memoirs Of A Gay-sha, and also apply all of the
make-up techniques I've learned a long the way.
