Brainstorming Photo Shoot: Steampunk Kitsune…

I’ve recently made some fox tail dreads, and now inspired to do an over-the-top photo shoot. I want to mix a bit of Asian culture, urbanization (hence the steampunk theme), and just plain foxy-ness. I’ve been pinning pics on my pinterest and hopefully by this weekend I might have photos done and up so stay tuned.

If you want to see my ideas go ahead and check out my pinterest board:

Recycled DIY Cardboard box to Bookcase

I work in retail and we get tons of boxes from suppliers. We tend to throw out the boxes, or even reuse them for shipping purposes. One of these boxes I saved for a special project. I sliced off all four flaps, taped and glued them in place, then spray painted and with modge podge, I collaged magazine photos on it…ta-dah!

Next Photo Shoot Inspiration is:

The word is Unicorn… Got my glittery horn made up, working on a cotton-candy colored ponytail for my mane, then all that’s left is magic. 

On a side note; I love crafting items for my photo ideas. If fact, I have a list of costumes and themes I want to accomplish, and have notes on what I need to make in order to have them come to life. Also I’m plotting some easy DIY tutorials.  

More from my deer shoot..heh.

Another photo from my deer photo-shoot. Here you can see my blue hair peeking through which was actually pretty cool. For this photo shoot, I thought blue hair would be too intense for a gentle creature like a deer. So I am wearing clip-in bangs and clip-in extensions that cover up most of my blue hair. Didn’t do a great job blending but then again my main focus was on my antlers that I made from clay.

Remi-Deer is displeased by this.
Today I finally got a chance to wear and show off my handmade antlers. I’m still trying to perfect a way to wear them on the head. Once I do, I’ll be posting my antlers on my etsy shop.
If you are wondering what happened to my brightly colored hair, let me put it this way. Clip-ins. My blue hair is hiding underneath it all.

I have been on a huge Game of Thrones kick. I love the outfits. I love the hair. I love the characters. And the story line is driving me crazy, in a good way.
So from this inspiration, I’ve created my own cloak, braided a head band, and went off to a local spot that has been abandoned for a photo shoot.
My hair: Same as my previous blog with my “rocker faux-hawk”. That rich blue velvet along with sonic green in my bangs, but here’s a twist that is hard to see in the photos. I am wearing extensions. My hair is pretty much just past my chin, but I have in shapeshifter extensions that make my hair several inches past my shoulders. My braid isn’t really a part of my head. It’s braided synthetic hair with an elastic band that way I can either wear across my forehead or even on top of my head for an easy cute finish.

Yet another pin-up inspired photo.
My hair was re-bleached to remove all traces of red/magenta back in November ‘12. I am blessed from my mom’s side with thick Asian hair. It is not typically recommended the amount of bleach used but my hair is a trooper and I needed to get my hair to the yellow stage of bleaching.
(If you have naturally black/dark hair, when you put bleach on it and depending on time, it will go through color stages of lightening. Black-brown-red-orange-yellow-white)
I needed to lighten my hair quite a bit in order to get to that vivid green color. I used Special effects in iguana green. 
You’ll notice I used special effects a lot. I love it because it is a vegetable base color staining. Since I’ve heavily bleached my hair, adding anything with a developer might be overboard and fry my hair, so I opted for something gentle. Since my hair is so light now, a stain sticks on there for a long time. I find that after three weeks (and washing every three days), my color fades to a pretty pastel and if I want the intense color back, I just apply my color back on.

Back in November. I was making a calendar for my boyfriend and thought a pinup style would be delightful. I did queue curls on the sides, curled up my bangs, and obviously my hair is pink. Not just any pink, but magenta *bam* pink. My hair was bleached henced the intense colors, and my pick of poison for hair color was Special effects in atomic pink.

This is by far my new favorite style to wear my hair. I have the sides french braided and pulled back in order to rock my faux hawk. 
The color I currently have, I’ve been sporting for several months. Back in November I had magenta hair. I’ll post some olders pics later. In December I had grinch green hair. In January I attempted a light blue with teal streaks but I was displeased and within in the following weeks colored my hair a rich dark blue and kept the teal bangs.
I’m just obsessed with hair and with changing my own constantly.
