Im a zombie fairy and she is a boy scout. :)
My styling class has given myself and my assigned group the opportunity to style a music video.
The Band is called Elenora, look them up on Facebook.
Shane and some of his film buddies are helping us film and edit it.
The concept for the video is so amazing and I'm so excited to film it this weekend, which is, sadly, halloween weekend but I cant wait for it to be finished. ill post the video on here.
Shane said he would start using me to style his shoots and then pitch me to his company officially.
This was a shoot for a housing reality company. I styled the actors to look like an, "on the go, fast paced, married couple who loves the community"
Im sure actual stylist don't do hair and makeup but in the last few styling shoots I have done, I have had to do all, clothing, hair and makeup. Good thing I know what I'm doing. Id say I'm pretty quick on my feet or as Tim Gunn would say, I make it work!
I would have to say the hardest part about styling is resources. In my experience, I have had to work with the clothing that the model/ actor brings and I have really surprised myself with how well I work with what I'm given in a creative environment.

shane has been working with a team to create this tv show called FOOD PDX.
I went with to help him out and they used me as an extra. pretty fun and we got free macaroons. yum
when the video is done ill post it. probably only if you can really see me... I was an extra.
so this last week I was inspired by all the midi skirts out there so I just made one of my own!
Couldn't really decide on how I wanted to style it.
and my leather clutch... I was inspired to make around 2am one night or should I say morning...
just the first proto types
after I patterned and cut the next time I worked on these I had a burst of energy and sewed up all of them in four hours!
the last two pics are of me deciding how i want to style that piece for the runway.

The braids are a new thing i'm trying.... feel a little like Pocahontas.
