“Penny Dreadful” 2015

“Perhaps it has always been there, this thing, this demon inside me. Or behind my back, waiting for me to turn around”-Vanessa Ives


I created this gown based on the amazing Victorian skull style fabric! I loved all the fill agree and detail in the print! I decided to hand paint the bottom of the gown to add some depth and color into the costume. I made a lace top with ruffled neckpiece and added some flowers and beaded appliqué detailing! Loved this shoot! With Chaunsey’s incredible hair and makeup skills and once Nikie had the gown on, it really came together! Here are some of our final images!
