Commission- Forest Spirit

Photographer: Marla Bishop

Make-up: Kat Winslade

Model: Elias Mattila

Costume: Courtney Coulson

This project is Marla’s entry for a photography contest, the concept was a kind of forest spirit or elf. The costume was largely improvised on the day, it consists of artificial moss and flowers and hot gluing it all together. It took about three hours. It was good to be able to collaborate in such an immediate way, we could figure out things like the colour pallet of the costume and the make-up as we went along. The challenge was bringing something new to what is quite an archetypal character, I believe playing with unusual structures and colours the way we did helped to achieve that.
