We are Fashion Promotion students who will be using this blog to document our research and ideas for a re-styling photoshoot project.
Wednesday, 2 February 2011
In the end we decided to use two models that had very different looks to recreate a girly girl Minnie and a more edgy Minnie. We looked at various make up techniques and although we like the Geisha look, we thought it was more appropriate, for the style we were wanting to create, to just use some features of the Geisha look, such as the dark lips and eyes. We looked at hair styles and was considering trying to make the hair look like ears but as one of the models had short hair and we felt it would take up a lot of our time, we decided to just use Minnie styled hair pieces such as ear headbands and bows for the hair. After researching lots of images on styling and photography, we decided that we were probably going to change the photographs to black and white and therefore we wanted to focus more on patterns that would be effective once the images had been edited, rather than colour. We also noticed that Minnie's legs are black so we tried to use leggings in our images as much as possible to keep that link between Minnie Mouse and our recreated Minnie. We took the photos in a RAW file so it wouldn't pixelate when editing our images.
