Butterfly Queen

We wanted to do a forest fantasy character this time, and I love the colour and shape of monarch butterfly so I had the idea to do a butterfly queen but make it look a bit more fashion and surreal.

This time we had to do a little more work for the photograph to be as we imagined.  Printing and cutting hundreds of butterflies took us a couple of days, also the crown for the queen  went slowly as I had to put the butterflies one by one, and wait for the glue to dry, but I am actually very happy with the result, and i love the butterfly crown.

The gold cardboard on the left is the base of the crown which latter i covered all in butterflies.


My desk was so messy, but I manage to finish everything only the dress was left which was quick work.

This was the tree we used for the pictures, we pined the butterflies on the surface of the tree and took them all down when we finished the photoshoot.

Latter we realised that we forgot to shoot some butterflies to insert in the picture, so we did it at home while watching Stargate Atlantis :)) 20131201_151921 copy

My eye make up seen closer. :D I was expecting to have a hard time drawing a butterfly on my face but it was quite fast.

The final picture is available to see on Mihai Crisan Website
