Model is V Nixie. She picked the concept, which was directly inspired by Neil Gaiman’s Sandman series (I’m not familiar with it, but she described it to me to create this).

Wardrobe provided by Helene Hawthorne" (And we know we didn’t get this outfit on right… we spent 20 minutes or so trying to figure it out!)

The makeup, the objects on her head, the outfit, the lighting, the colors are all 100% real.

This was a 8-9 hour photo shoot. I attached everything to her head by hand using spirit gum and medical adhesive, and it took forever. I also applied all the eye makeup. She did the rest of the makeup.

This is my new favorite photo shoot and I will be submitting more soon.
