Heinrich Mücke Inspired Dress

24 Jul

I try not to make separate posts for indoor pictures since they are never that great. But it’s already been a couple week since I finished this project and it might be a couple more before I have outdoor photos, so this will have to do!

Overall i’m really happy with this costume. I love the dress, headpiece, and how they look together. I’m pretty happy with how my wig and makeup turned out too! But I don’t love these pictures. I wanted the dress to be long and flowing but it’s a little too…flat.

I think next time i’ll wear it with a petticoat to get a bit more volume. I posted a video (here) of me spinning in it to get the hem laid out for photos – the volume it has in motion is something I want to carry over into photos as well. But that is an easy fix and not related to the dress itself, just the way it’s worn in the future.

And some portraits taken a few days later. I was trying out a new lighting setup, which I really liked, but I didn’t like the background. Going to change that next time!

    Looking great! You do have an angelic vibe in that dress, in a rather medieval way, so I think you caught the essence of the painting! The crown is killer!

    Excellent photos. Being indoors does not matter. You did a good job of getting a white background to show off the dress. Also: Excellent choice of lipstick color.

    As a professional photographer, you did an amazing job working with what you have. As a fan of your work, I am in awe yet again. This is beyond stunning, and the head piece is….beyond words!
