I've finished writing my essay finally, my deadline was just an hour ago and earlier I was madly taking these photos for my research portfolio, I really liked how they turned out so I thought I would share them with you.
The inspiration for the photos was a combination of Ken Russell's "The Boy Friend" and "The Fall of the Louse of Usher", "First Dance" a video by Yuval Hen, photographer Irina Ionesco and actress Eva Ionesco. I began writing my essay when I revisited Louise Ebels blog after not having read it for a few years (http://misspandora.fr) and found her recent photo-shoot "Pierrot Lunaire" which you can see here. I can't think of a good title for these photos so I guess I will just call it portfolio? I am so good with words...
I look super angry in these photos I think its what happens when I have a middle parting, my roots have got so long I'm trying to grow them out so it looks like dip dye, who knows why I'm still entertaining this trend but for some reason I still like it.
The Armarni Exchange tshirt is from a charity shop as well as the shorts and the tights I bought the other day at a tape top sale and dr martens are off ebay!
Bought this turtleneck in wales last time I was there it was only £1.50 in a charity shop yay! I am also wearing my favourite grey flannel shirt and the same skirt I was wearing the other day that I got from the table top sale and cut short! I want to sew something tonight but I am going to Jo's again, hopefully I can squeeze it in between writing some of my essay and before I leave!
This is what I made yesterday when I decided to have a mad night of sewing! I really really love it, its been so long since I've actually made something and actually finished it, I never even finish anything for my uni projects as I really hate sewing against a deadline its so stressful! But this was really fun because I knew what I was doing and it only took three hours to make, I'm really happy with it yay! I am also wearing a charity shop shirt and platform/ creeper boots from ebay!
I'm going to start doing stuff like this more often I think, hopefully, making stuff yourself is so much more rewarding than buying it!
