Dia de los Muertos

A Dia delos Muertos-themed shoot inspired by the paintings of Frida Kahlo.

On Photos: Pola Castillo and Gabrielle Lopez
Photography, Concept, Art Direction: Katrina Pallon
Make-up and Styling: Gabrielle Lopez and Katrina Pallon
Corsets by Pola Castillo

This is probably my favourite shoot so far. I had so much fun with the make-up, even if symmetry was a bit of a problem.

The corsets were awesome. Pola made them herself and took about an inch to inch and a half off my actual waistline and made me stand up straight for once in my life. My back did hurt for a couple of days after, but what is pain in the name of beauty hahaha!

And what I find particularly awesome about this shoot is that despite the heavy Mexican influence, these photos still have a very Filipino feel to them.

Because you know, I’m nationalistic like that.

  2. I love the makeup and the corsets! And I agree that there’s a Filipino feel in it even if it has Mexican influence. But well, Mexican’s are associated with Filipino’s so there. 😛
