For those of you who may know me a little better, you may remember that I did some modeling when I was younger in Toronto. It’s been a while, maybe at least 3 years since then.
I must admit that I miss doing it. It was great to channel my energy towards creating new concepts, looks, and coming up with some modern non-trivial poses. A lot of times besides modeling I had to do styling as well, since it was a rare occasion to have a wardrobe stylist on set.
I got a few interesting accessories and decided to put together a stylish photoshoot to remember the old times. I wore 40 denier shiny white pantyhose (actually those are Raula by Fiore) and a pink sparkly dress to create a certain fantasy look. It was a lot of fun! Even simple accessories can add a lot of attitude and style to a simple look.
The feather whip that I used in this photoshoot was a gift from a novelty store that I frequently visit called Books Unlimited on Granville Street in Vancouver. I was so surprised with that gift that I came home and figured that I’ll do something to show it off.
This photoshoot was a perfect opportunity to try out this feather tickler. This pink dress I found for $17 at a second hand store also on Granville. The hat was bought from e-bay from a Hong-Kong supplier for just a couple of dollars. White pantyhose were by Fiore, that shiny type is called Raula.
Of course, I must admit this photoshoot didn’t go perfect. As soon as we began, I got a call from my friend that she’s coming over. I had to stop in the middle of the shoot, put a long mohair sweater over this dress, and then an hour later get back to work. In the process my body paint that I did on my arm with pink paint and sparkles of course came off – that’s why you can’t spot it here.
It feels good to keep up the old hobbies once in a while. Did you have any hobbies or interests in the pass that you miss having today? It’s never too late to start again.
