Chubby Skeleton

This shoot came together after a week of sitting on the idea and the inspiration.  I’ve always been hesitant to do diy’s because I don’t want it to just look like a shitty version of the original.  I think what helps me is not to focus on spitting out an exact copy, but trying to (as cheesy as it sounds) put some of me into it.  So here is my prototype of the skeletor suit.  I say prototype because I have kinks to work out and I like it so much it’s worth perfecting.  The suit is a compilation of a bodysuit and iron-on-transfers.  Oh, how I envy those who have the luxury of screen printing!

The black lip is inpired by YSL Fall 2008.  You ain’t no fool.  And no, it isn’t the limited addition (those marketing fiends!) YSL Pure Lip Gloss #49.  I’m actually wearing eyeliner, which is kinda gross considering it might be going on my eyes later.  I guess I can use the bandages to clean myself up if I end up getting a nasty infection.  Or an eye patch.  Yes, definitely an eye patch.

    hot stuff! love the aesthetic <3

    you can always sharpen the eyeliner afterward…you'll be all good in the hood :) unless it's liquid. in that case you can ignore me.

    Nice job on the DIY. And black eyeliner is probably the best alternative to lipstick. A quick once over with a lighter should make it nice and safe for your eyes.
