Gypsy soul

I just finished a fantastic Photoshoot with A Frame of Mind Visual Arts and it was an ultra bohemian experience. We gathered glass bottles, hundreds of tiny votive candles, and tons of colorful fabrics, and trekked out into a wooded location for a gypsy-esque belly dancer shoot that was loosely inspired by the character of Esmeralda from the Hunchback of Notre Dame.

I had a blast making dreadlocks with synthetic hair extensions, and tying bits of jewelry and braiding feathers into my hair. The setting was perfect, and the photographer was very pleasant to work with. She knew just what she was looking for in every shot, which made things easy and fast. We wrapped up the entire shoot in just enough time for me to avoid being eaten alive by mosquitoes. Well… Mostly.

Below you can see the inspiration and the finished shots:
