I've finally got around to taking some good photos of Iplehouse Grace, who returned a couple of months ago from getting a new face-up from Angel Toast. I tried a boho look on her, but that didn't look particularly exciting... then I tried a little black dress and a new wig on her...
Wow! Grace, you look so... different!
Because a little black dress is a girl's best friend...
Grace's dress is from Etsy store PamSDminicostuming.
I'd just received a new red dress from Etsy shop PamSDminiClothing, but the intended recipent - Angelika - had gone off for a new face-up.
What to do?
I decided to try it out on Chloe. My goodness, what a transformation!
Still sweet and serene, but now with an unexpected supercharged sexiness;
I heightened the contrast on the photos - they were actually taken inside at noon, using a backdrop - to simulate the harsh lighting of night-time artificial lighting. I wanted a "fashion shoot" feel to the photos.
The night-time backdrop really makes the red dress "pop".
Chloe was very obliging and didn't even mind posing unsupported...
I was so taken with Chloe after these photos were shot, that I bought two more dreaming Chloe face-plates! And her very own body.
This will be perfect for photographing Chloe and Angelika together, or doing "day" and "night' photos with them.
But that's a story for another day...
