Wendigo - Featuring Restyle & Cherri Lane
Posted on 08 July 2016
Last year I had the chance to style my own darker photo set with the amazing Katherine Davis. If you are a fan of the TV series Hannibal you'll know exactly what I mean when I say Wendigo. Originally I was going for a more woodland nymph style but in the end it came out as almost a cross over between the two and I love it.
This week we have a new shipment of stunning antlers and horns in stock so I just wanted to share this shoot as it was my all time favourite of 2015!
Restyle Deer Antlers and Orchids Headband (sold out but all others are in stock!!)
For years I've been lusting after deer antlers in both the real and fake form. When Restyle released their own range of wearable antlers and horns I was instantly in love and I would have killed to be able to find a shop like this when I was a younger goth!
To achieve my deer/wendigo dreams I picked up this stunning headband full of black orchids and adorable little black antlers. They are lightweight yet solid and attached to a thick and comfortable headband. I've not worn a headband like this for years in fear of that pain they can cause after a few hours but this style is a dream to wear.
These antlers flew out the door like hotcakes but you can find the all of the other styles shown below for a both a sweet and even a more devilish look . I think I'll pick up one of each as they work wonderfully for both every day wear and costuming and they are so comfortable to wear!
Paired with flowing black lace and most importantly the right corsets! We have heaps in stock right now but I have to say my little pinup gothic heart gravitates to this stunning piece below.
It was such a pleasure to dress up at the end of a full fashion shoot and get a little more creative and much more 'Me' for set of images. I'm a gothic/punk/rock chick at heart and I need to embrace this more often and shoot more creative images on a regular basis. I have my sights set on some creepy Halloween styles soon so I'm already pre-planning my next creative endeavour.
Many thanks to Katherine Davis for her stunning work behind the lenses!
