This was my first time doing 'pregnant' styling with fake boobies and tummy hahaha... I was pretty much stressed out, trying to get the right tummy dummy, at the end I didn't have enough time to develop a new latex tummy, so David managed to borrow the tummy from a client. Thank God! Phew.. Another thing that stressed me out was the talent, Dinda, very beautiful but also very thin and small. I have to make her look 'full', fake tummy and boobies were just not enough, plus they prefer the dresses to be tight fitting a.k.a body hugging.
So these are the sketches, I need to hid her thin arms and somehow add more 'volume' to her.
This is the beautiful 'expecting mother' Dinda hehehe... well, the dress didn't exactly made her look 'bigger' but it did hid her thin arms and shoulder :) oh! I also need to add fake 'bums' hahaha!! On this job, Dinda got new tummy, boobies and bums :D
Glam hot mama.
And these are the fabulous miss Malek the art director and miss Di Yee the director.
I had a really good time doing this job :D It was very tiring plus it's 3 days shoot and I had another shoot just one day apart from this shoot. But it's all worth the pain and the energy. 5 princess look from 5 fairytales, I had to re-create 5 princess to look different from Disney's princess (coz of copyright matters), but they still had to look like all those well known Disney princess hahaha! Was quite a challenge but very fun to do :D Here are the sketches.
My personal favorite is the Mermaid and Snow White outfit :)
Detailing on Ariels costume first progress second progress final look. I decided to loose the large sea star in the middle coz it kept breaking apart and change it to small ones.
I particularly like the large lace collar on Snow white, that was the hardest part, how to make it stand up and not falling when she moves.
We actually shot Maia in 3 outfit, one is the pink top from the tvc (I haven't got the file yet) and two freestyle options. Plus they wanted her to have a bit of a glamorous look, quite different from what Dove image look like basically.
So I came up with one teal colored top, all materials have sheen (to add the glam look) and the other one was a bronze top with a more dressy style compared to the teal.
She also had hair styles for each outfit. She looked younger in the teal top with that kind of hair style :)
The shoot. This bronze top was a bit too small for her, we didn't have fitting coz of her tight schedule and she looked very sexy coz of the low neckline :p Oops!
I have very little time to do the coat and the dress, was pretty tense :p Not a single tailor I knew was willing to do the coat (coz of the tight deadline), Luckily Laxmi were willing to do it (after much persuasion of course!)
