Styling | Puss In Boots Shoot - Retro Sonja
February 17, 2017

Hello sweeties!

After my update about my new studies Photostyling Fashion, it’s now time for my first update about a styling job that I did! For a school assignment I had to pick a fairy tale and create a concept, styling, and photoshoot around it, and bring together a team. I chose for the fairy tale Puss In Boots. In this story the cat is a very clever personality who catches rabbits and birds, and brings them to the king in order to get the king to like his boss, such that the both of them can have a better life. So for my shoot I wanted to take the photos in front of a castle, and have the model pose like a cat who’s about to attack, while holding a rabbit. As a vegetarian I wanted a fun, happy, and most of all, a cruelty-free twist on the rabbit. And then I found an amazing Alice In Wonderland inspired rabbit bag from Leg Avenue! I wanted to create a feminine and fashionable twist on Puss In Boots. I used leopard print, a skirt with cats printed on it, and cat ears, to emphasize the idea of the cat. Obviously, a Puss In Boots outfit required over knee boots. I finished off the outfit with accessories, a lot of color, and a studded double belt.

It had snowed on the day of the shoot, and there was glazed frost, so it wasn’t possible for the entire team to make it to the castle where we originally planned to do the shoot. Also, the model was sick and had to cancel. And so I modelled myself! And secretly it was a lot of fun! It was so different from my usual shoots for outfit posts, but it was so much fun to do! We used a majestic house with a nice big garden as the location. What do you think of these photos and the styling? :-)
