Lookbook: My Casual Encounter

Over the next day or so I will be packing and ready to go back to being a working girl in Ottawa.

I've learned that parents are like taro bubble tea. The first bit tastes delicious but you get sick of it real fast. Then after not having it for a while you start to crave for it again. And I've had enough taro for now LOL

Anyways here is another series I did with Eric. This one is different than previous ones as this is more for fun than anything else. It’s also been a while since I’ve done an illustration since they take a LOT of time. But I sure do love doing them.

Photos by Eric Lee
Illustration, Make Up and Modelled by Pop Champagne


Backstage Photos

If you're wondering how this was done, the pictures from Eric’s orig camera was cropped to be a square. I wanted it to have an “album art” feel. Then I took photos of Domo propped up in various positions with my new Canon SLR (it was a Christmas present from myself to myself, lol).



The rest is through the magic of Photoshop with skills you learn from various art classes growing up :)

Hope you enjoyed this set!

  2. you look hot,girl!
    love the wild but casual look.

    i think the leather pants paired with a casual top & sexy boots are great combination. i think most girls won't be able to do this look, but you look hot!

  13. I LOVE DOMO<3

    Totally feel you on the whole parents thing, when you're so happy to see them after a while and then its like, "go away". LOL. I absolutely adore the third image. I can see it in a magazine. Photoshop is wonderful isn't it? Especially when you know what you're doing, lol.

  17. damn, where'd you get those leggings/pants?! :D I want me someeee <3 And this one is even better than the other one because I'm loving all the colors that are in it :)

    Tires are expensive, but luckily I don't really have bills to pay yet so I can suck it up and just pay for it myself instead of asking my mommy LOL! And $65 for brushes is a lot, especially since I have read some mixed reviews about it, but today is the last day to get them with the 30% off discount and I'm still undecided! GRR :(

    It's funny, because my husband and I lived with his parents for a month right after we got out of high school... By the end of the month, we were all ready to part ways! (We're on good terms, of course... You know what I mean! LOL!)

  49. Awesome photos! I love the fun playful vibe and you look terrific!

    Oh, I so get you with the parents. I'm really glad to be back in my own home. I think essentially what gets me is that no matter how old you are, parents will always treat you like a kid.

    And don't worry about the 'haute' reference. I didn't actually put much thought into my blog name. But I figured "chic world" sounded even more stupid ;-)
