Check out my shoot for Maat's clothing brand: Live Astro. His new collection called 'RapLife' recently came out and it features the raddest prints and clever connotations. I just had to steal one of the "Crime de la Crime" snapbacks for myself. Go to his website here to see his urban clothing line and look out for me :)
For this Halloween I was the Bride of Frankenstein which was surprisingly easy to put together. I ordered a vintage wedding dress and a curly statement wig on Ebay (duh). My make up was easily done with black and white face paint. While fitting myself into the Bride of Frankenstein role, I was stumped over the fact that this female monster doesn't have a name of her own. My feminist side kicked in and I angrily thought, "this is why society needs feminism- instead of having my own name, I am known as the BRIDE of Frankenstein-two key words that describes who I am. My role as a bride and belonging to Frankenstein are the most important traits that make up this female monster." I was so pissed that I need some actual research on digging up her real name and it turns out that the author didn't name her or the Frankenstein monster. Frankenstein is the name of the creator, therefore the Frankenstein monster doesn't have a name of his own either. That made me feel a bit better. Excuse the long rant, it had to come out.
So um, originally the title of this post was "inside a broccoli" haha. The first draft of my writing is usually super crappy so that it seems like a huge improvement compared to the second draft. Firefly...seems more enlightening and magical. Broccoli...actually I just had some, and they were pretty good, but not exactly the best color to describe this elevator. Is it just me or do guys only see the colors of ROYGBIV, while girls realize there are a million shades in between? Let me know your thoughts on what color this elevator is.
Last but not least, the spoiled diva in the city look. For the final outfit, I wore my black goth tulle dress from Modcloth and although I forgot all my jewelry, I borrowed the necklace from Linda, the hair stylist :) And the sunnies are from Trisha. Sometimes improvisation works surprisingly well.
