White Lady - Cailleach

This is one costume from my recent celtic mythology shoot.  I made costumes for the trio goddesses of the Morgu (battle, death and the afterlife).  For my own costume, I chose the crone aspect of the three, a sort of gatekeeper for the afterlife.  There was a lot of draping work and indecisiveness, but i am really happy with how the dress turned out.  I'll post some progress shots to my scraps ^_^

This is an exquisitely beautiful shot, it's so wispy and dreamy looking. X3 The flowing dress and hair, your pose and expression, they all come together amazingly well in this captured moment. Awesome job to all involved, you look wonderful, and I rather like the pattern on your right arm here for some reason. ^^

I think I might be in love...Love 
How cruel the world is to taunt me with yet another beauty forever beyond my reach...T-T:( (Sad) 
But I shall allow it.
...there are things that are beautiful precisely because one cannot posses them!Wink/Razz :D (Big Grin)

and i love underwater modeling for exactly that reason. it can only exist in an environment that is fleeting and impermanent. And so any moment captured underwater is truly beyond your grasp.

aw <3!!!!  thank you
and i love costuming, so i want to share the final look (what everything was designed for) but also what things look like out of that context.  for any costumes designers... it's helpful to see both.
