When Kelly approached me to photograph a specific hairstyle she wanted to add to her portfolio, I was thrilled to help. She has helped me with many of my ideas and it was my turn to repay her. As she told me about the look and mentioned that she wanted an '80's eyeshadow to match the mohawk, I thought of Adam Ant as inspiration. I ran the idea by Kelly, and she liked it. Kelly then set about to make the look her own.
For wardrobe, I wanted to play with the military jackets that Adam Ant wore, but with Allison's complexion, I thought the green military inspired jacked worked better than a black one. Allison brought a cute sequined tank that worked contrasting the formal against the casual. Allison also brought this great skull shirt. It inspired Kelly to pull out black tulle and me to find my skull and sword earrings, resulting in a Madonna meets Adam Ant look.
Allison did a fantastic job bringing the look to life in front of the camera. Kelly created a fantastic make up and hair combination. And I had a great time working with these two fun ladies and creating some fun in-camera effects that put a little extra artistic spin on the look. We all enjoyed this look and played with it for as long as we could. Simply put: Kelly and Allison blew me away with this look!
