It’s so funny, you go to acting school thinking you’re going to learn how to be other people, but really it taught me how to be myself. Because it’s in understanding yourself deeply that you can lend yourself to another person’s circumstances and another person’s experience.
Turkish baklava. Yummy
If you’re gonna give yourself a sugar hangover, might as well do it the Ottoman way.
I really liked how fluffy the clouds turned out so I wanted to just have that (∩❛ڡ❛∩). Sorry, tumblr is quite horrible for showing horizontal pictures so I’m going to try this thing :P.
Cosplay Couture interpretation of Henry Sturges from Abraham Lincoln:Vampire HunterCostume (pants, cravat and wig) and styling by Courtney CoulsonPhotography by Luke MiltonLocation Karrakatta cemetaryOur belated Halloween themed shoot!I absolutely adore this movie and the book, I also love Dominic Cooper, so Henry is easily my favourite character. He’s got such a cool, anachronistic design that I often dress like him in my daily life. So it was only natural to turn this into Cosplay Couture as I had most of these pieces in my wardrobe already. To me Henry is all about the hair and the sunglasses, so I spent most of my time getting those right. At first I attempted to make the glasses, failed miserabley and only then did I find some similar glasses on ebay when I realised Johnny Depp in Dark Shadows had ones almost identical.The wig was one I bought ages ago from Five Wits and it’s seriously awesome. It was originally a bit longer and a light brown, I was able to dye it and cut it without destroying it, which can happen with cheaper wigs. Styling it was a lot of fun although a bit challenging because Sturges has such a specific haircut.The make-up is all reds, burgundys and greys which I think somehow still look beautiful while giving one an unnatural look.While Henry isn’t seen in vampire mode too often, I have long wanted to dress up as a vampire, so I couldn’t resist baring those fangs! They are actually fake nails, I can’t believe how cheap, easy and comfortable they were, based on this tutorial right here:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wx-uXJYSZAYIn terms of personality and physicality, like Henry’s outward appearance, he’s a bit of a rockstar, he’s badass, he’s a little too serious but he can also be a bit cocky.-Courtney CoulsonFor me this was really about finding the right colours and textures in our various locations and then mixing in some sepia tones to capture the mood of the film. This was another really good example of finding little pieces of interest in a vast environment and using them to our advantage, attempting to make things feel more other worldly than our actual surrounds. I also wanted to achieve a real contrast between the fully costumed, formal Sturges and the wilder Sturges with the axe in the woods.- Luke Milton
