There. That got your attention.
A very good friend of mine from all the way back to college (which was when I was 16 – 18 (I am no longer 16 – 18, alas), is an incredible costume designer and maker. She has created a new character for herself so that she has more opportunities to be creative with what she designs (just making replica costumes is quite restrictive) and recently we spent the day in my local studio making what I think, are some really striking images.
The character is an alien called Zizi Moondust (heavily influenced by Bowie, as you will see), inspired by the Andorian species from Star Trek. Take a look at Zizi’s facebook page if you’d like to know more.
Anyway, a fantastic day followed – she is a very creative designer, a very easy model to work with (though that may be because we’ve known each other for 12 years or so…) and the studio with its 26 sets gave us a lot of freedom.
Its not often I get to photograph an alien, but what a refreshingly fun day!
