It's nearly Christttmasss!

Mince Pie Time
So I've been quite busy- finishing off deadlines for uni, and I've been working my bum off! But it will pay off in my pay I hope!
Seen as I love cats here's the card from paperchase I got my mum for christmas! It cheered me up!
I have been keeping snug in an old Black Bobble hat I discovered, I remember it being from H&M a few years ago. I tend to get really bad earache in the wind, and my 'head bands' mess up my hair before work so aren't such a great idea! Here's my little wintery outfit from the other day before heading off to town and the German Christmas markets here for a few drinks.
I love a bit of trashy style! These boots have lasted me through my travelling in Australia and I love them! This is the customised studded bag I adore, and an old Miss Selfridge snood.
Beatnik Emporium Southampton
Me and my flatmates did our last bits of christmas shopping and we ended up in the vintage shop we've always meant to pop into! I got this amazing cute jumper for £15, and I will probably end up living in it now..
I have been on a mission the last few nights to celebrate after getting all my work done! And I'm off for the staff christmas meal tonight at TGI's - we are all dressing up a little so I got a cute bright Red skater skirt from Miss Selfridge! Pictures of outfit to follow.
I go home tomorrow - only till Tuesday :( ! My mum and I are working alot over Christmas so it is kind of our Christmas day- so I'm a little bit excited!!!
I hope everyone is starting to feel festive!
Thanks for reading, Becky xxx

i-D Photoshoot

So, for one of my units we have had to create a magazine feature for i-D magazine, focusing on diversity. The deadline is this Friday and then it's officialy christmas for me!
With the photographs we also have to produce a written interview.
Due to not being able to pay models, and having to use ordinary models that form as muses, two of my models ended up dropping out.. And not getting back to me at all.
But I am so happy with the end result with my one model Tifani! She has been a blessing.
I wanted the clothing to fit in with i-D magazine, who usually choose designer pieces.
So I stuck to a simple futuristic theme, with a simple colour palette of White/Black and additions of 'pearly' 'wallpaper' textures.

I bought some coloured acetates to use ontop of the lighting to create a coloured glow on each shot.
I also wanted to use White Powder, in a similar to way to photographer Nick White. His shots speak to you- they are very simple with the limited use of clothing, and speak on the same level of this project- about diversity. Below are some of the shots I took most interest in.
A Few of My Final Shots
Because of the nature of the project I have used extremely limited editing on the final photographs. I have not layed them out yet in the final magazine structure as I am waiting on the interview piece from Tifani!
This will be the front cover- with all the captions placed on and
i-D logo and credits, to my little helpers Ellen and Caroline!
