This took me hours to put together! The skirt looks simple, but it has a handmade hard willow frame/petticoat underneath to give it the shape... I basically handmade everything!

Model/MUA/Concept/Stylist: Muse

Lots of people have copied this, but I guess that's the internet for you!

Playful and elegant! I like how the pose seems to manipulate the shape of the skirt, appreciate the motion in the angle of the photo.

But this image brought to mind this 80s music video by Yoko Oginome: [link]
I don't really expect it to be watched (It takes a while for stuff to start in it!). Just thought I'd share anyway. :)

The outfits, makeup/accessories and in cases such as this, hand-crafted settings in your work are fresh, extremely well executed (quite tediously in some cases!) and produce outstanding -- striking, appealing, rich -- results.
