Full shoot: [link]
(Please let me know if any colours are a bit off, my monitor is currently dying and I have no idea how true the colours that it's projecting are OTL;;)

I have a feeling that there may be a few more shots uploaded from this shoot in the future, but I've just been going through them all compiling a shoot entry, and I can't believe I hadn't uploaded this shot by Shiroin! We were attempting to replicate the reference artwork, and Skye was just such an amazing helper with setting everything up. <3 This whole shoot day was just amazing with getting to work with so many photographers.

The costume itself was an interesting experience to make. I worked with a lot of new fabrics like silk, saris, model magic and resing casting my own gems....which hardly gets into the production of the jewellery, which I got a lot of helpful advice from *yiji and ~airymilu.

My favourite part of the costume, though, is definitely the prop harp. I left it a bit last minute with it only being made in two weeks, but my dad was amazing and super helpful, and we thankfully got it all done on time! It's made like a lot of my other props with having an MDF web that balsa wood is then built up upon. Everything was then sanded and puttied a MILLION times to achieve the highly smooth finish. It then has foam, and wonderflex to build up other areas, and the strings are a long continuous piece of elastic that was threaded through holes that were later sealed up.

I also owe a lot of thanks to *juunana for finding and sending me some more trim that I bought in Japan for this costume...and then found out I didn't have enough. D8 OTL;;; Thank-you <3

Uuh...there are quite a few other details of this costume XD So I'll edit in an update when I get around to writing about them all.

Thank-you to everyone who came and helped with the shoot~

Photography crew!

Aren't they just? It's so hard to chose what shots to put up because all of the photographers took such beautiful photos.

Oh lol! I completely forgot about him. But I guess we can't all fly, and he had to get down somehow? He was probably as wtf as we were, though!
