A Night At The Circus - Goldielocks and Cupid Style

 Roll Up! Roll Up!
 And come and enjoy A Night At The Circus - Goldielocks and Cupid Style! ;)

The lovely Shona across at  A Polaroid Dream took all the photos (the genius she is), I styled and dressed the sets, and made the costumes and accessories, and my beautiful, beautiful sister, Lex, modelled for me.
 Here's me fixing her hat in between a shot! I picked up the actual hat for around 50p at Wednesday Market (a beloved haunt for Shona, my sister, and I) and I added the hand painted (by me) flowers and dusty rose/ lilac Ostrich feathers on myself.
 Vintage enamel mirror, again from Wednesday market :)
 All the back drop is hand painted too :)
 This is a Jasper Conran dress that I customised and altered to what we needed for the shoot.
 In the Studio helping her out of that hat!
 Just tweaking outfit No. Two...
 This was a cheap little dress that I again customised with fringing, tasseling, and ribbon.


 Doesnt she look beautiful :)

 Mine and Shona's Masterpiece!
 She looks so tiiny in the big top! She's actually nearly 6ft tall...clever photography ;)
 Ring Master!


 A hint of Debbie Harry, non?



 Hope you enjoyed the show ;)

Love that fringed, tasseled concoction. Did you call it 'A Night at the Circus' because of the Angela Carter book? It's seriously good.

Absolutely fantastic work! I love some of the more candid, less posed shots that kind of give it a 'behind the scenes' feel. Congrats on such a successful creative collaboration. And it's really made me hanker after my modelling days. *sigh*
