Every now and then I have to make a costume for a shoot.The creative director will have a mood board with the type of images/looks that they are looking for and then it’s my job to source it and make it a reality.
This job was kind of fun as it was about Tekken 6 – which I haven’t played yet but I do like video games even though I’m not so great at them. I generally choose the female character and live vicariously through them even if it is only for a few minutes.
This is Ling Xiaoyu from Tekken 6 and I think she’s quite cool.
Naomi@IMM was our model for the day. She wasn’t meant to be a character from a video game but just a girl inspired by them!
