Garden Courtesans Photo Shoot

In June I was invited to be a model for a fun shoot with SierraRoses SFX Makeup and Alicyn Drew Photography. The theme was famous historical courtesans. Sierra did our makeup based on historical looks. We shot in Ali’s backyard, which stood in nicely for a fancy garden.

Lena Volkova was Cleopatra, Crazy Jae Cosplay was Liane de Pougy, and I was Madame de Pompadour.

I wore my green francaise gown, but added a new wig and jewelry that I made for the occasion. My hair is 1770s, which is a bit too late for Madame de Pompadour, but I thought big hair would work well for dramatic photos. I love the makeup Sierra did.

Ali got some cool effects by shooting a strobe light through a lace panel.
