Madame Butterfly in the wicker chair
Just got back from a make up job with a lovely girl called Lena. She is a drummer here in Sweden and she needed new promo pics. Can’t wait to see the results on those.
It is close to 1 AM here and I am very tired. But before I go to sleep I just felt like telling everyone about my passion for hats. I really like when this accessory matches the rest of your outfit. It is a form of art, and symbolises status and authority. But most of all I like the creativity that is put into a lot of hats. Feathers, plumes and flowers, pretty much anything can be used for decorations. Only imagination is the limit.
• Things to do in this lifetime: Attend a course on how to make your own beautiful hats!
Here are some pictures photographer Ken Backius took of me. He called the session “Madame Butterfly in the Wicker Chair”.
The styling is very simple with a red shawl that I found at the swap-meet for 10 SEK. Shirt, fashion 80’s style. Shoes are from Scorett on sale for 350 SEK. The red details are everywhere from jewelry to hair styling accessories and picked up by the make up as well.
