:iconscandinavianlullaby: and I came up with the concept for this photo. We wanted aughtumn colours, a bit of Scandinavia in it (the hat!) and a nice story.

So, being the World of Warcraft lovers that we are, we decided that she would be the Druid Queen. Because they are nature creatures, they are strong and powerful. Plus they are imba!

Photographer/Editing: me
Model: :iconscandinavianlullaby:
Idea: :iconscandinavianlullaby:
Concept: me
Make-up: me
Outfit: :iconscandinavianlullaby:, me and a special THANKS to Marie's boyfriend Christian who made the beads out of the berries and helped me with putting a bunch op plants into the costume and her hair. ^^

PS. markings were a bitch to make, since I had to make them on PS.

first of all, I've literally, actually literally never seen a human being so beautiful and perfect, second of all, these pictures are amazing, I'm using them as inspiration for my book (about celts, druids, vikings and elves etc), Brilliant!

Super fedt kostume!
Hvor lang tid tog det at lave?

Ca 30 min for at samle bladerne sammen for at lave shoulder/chestpeace sammen med den veninde, imens hendes kæreste lavede halskæde af bær.
Da vi fandt perfekt sted til baggrund brugt vi måske 10-20 for at tilføje ekstra detaljer som græs i håret og flere blade osv.

Det var jo ikke slemt! Bare synd det ikke er noget som holder i længere tid. Men kunstige blade giver også et helt forkert look. Men det er super lækkert :) Altid god inspiration :)

The leaves beads and fur are a nice touch. I like the idea of the clay as face paint. You look celtic your self,you could do it with you as the subject.

And thank you, I am considering that maybe one day I should take a photo where I use clay on someone as facepaint - would give an interesting effect.

Haha maybe, but its harder to take selfportaits - specially when there are small details.

This was taken Oct 26, 2007 - so most likely you a) thought of similar idea b) saw this here and drew something simialar.

The concept we created together with my friend who is on the photo.
