I just scored this fabulous Plaisance dress from Zibska~Jewelry, Roots & Couture! It was really tough to decide which outfit to purchase, because Zibska has some really creative…or, as she aptly describes it, punk nouveau designs.
I absolutely love the geometric, three dimensional, hollow boxes with their gray scale harlequin design. It makes me think…art and fashion meet science…just brilliant! (click through the pics to see the detail of the dress)
I chose to accessorize the dress with the ethereal Glam Affair Roza Unamed skin, the fashion forward Just Design Mesh Creations Deviant Shoes, Tuty’s LIMBO Short Wet Hairstyle, and Mime Eyes from Dirty Cute-Ugly Duck (store is empty and eyes not currently available).
William Weaver’s build 002 served as a perfect backdrop for the shoot and The Apple Spice Fighting Gravity Poses from Apple Spice, cStar Limited and AnTi-Social highlight the fabulous quirkiness of this dress.
I’ve been visiting the Lumipro blogspot to learn more about how to get the best usage out of my Lumipro HUD from Stefan Buscaylet. So, on this shoot, I kept fiddling with the lights and found a way to make the shadows pop and become part of the focal point of the pics.
I know they aren’t perfect and I broke the rules…but I had a blast composing and taking the pics. My biggest disappointment with them is knowing how much I really need to learn more about using layering/masks so that I can get a better color balance to the pics. The skin is wayyyy to bright here…despite adjusting the intensity, fall off, radius and color of the Lumipro lamp.
It’s all part of the journey and staying captivated.
