Wizard of Oz!
About a month ago, my team sat down together and had a little pow wow about how to make my photographs a little more exciting. We started tossing around some ideas and we ended up with doing a fashion story of the Wizard of Oz. We started of with some pretty grand ideas and ideally ended up with on-location ideas for each of the characters in the book. I hired an incredible model, Julie, who is signed with Donna Baldwin Modeling Agency. And of course my fabulous team, Ryan who did the makeup and Marcus who did hair. I had such a blast picking out wardrobe and at times it proved to be a little tricky. For Dorothy we needed a little extra somethin' so we rented a parachute from The Army and Navy Surplus store in Arvada. Scarecrow's dress is by Cache as is the TinMan's dress. Glenda the Good Witch is by Calvin Klein, The Bad Witch the dress by INC and the Corset by Kara Corset Designs. And last but not least the Lions look is by INC from Macy's. Shoes provided by Steve Madden and Bebe, and jewelry by Sax Fifth Ave.
