LA CARMINA IN GOTHIC BEAUTY MAGAZINE! MEXICAN SUGAR SKULLS MAKEUP, PURPLE EXTENSIONS HAIRSTYLE, LOLITA DRESS.
I’m in the current issue of Gothic Beauty magazine! Major thanks to Marissa for the interview, and to my heart-stoppingly talented team who did the photography, hair, makeup and styling.
After my Mexico Day of the Dead journey, I’m addicted to sugar skulls. We paired a half-face with styling influenced by Japanese Goth and Lolita.
Three cheers for my Vancouver-based dream team.
I’m floored with the interview. Gothic Beauty’s description: “La Carmina is a uniquely bright and shining star in the goth scene. Always sporting a style that’s spooky, cute, and sexy all at the same time, and with a group of creepy chic friends in tow, La Carmina travels the world in search of subjects that fascinate.”
You can pick up a copy of Issue 36 here.
I’m happy that the article honors my friends and colleagues, Naomi Rubin (First Mate of our Pirates business for TV hosting/fixing/consulting), and Yukiro the “glam-Evil-Queen.”
I’m wearing my own clothes: a Lolita dress by Innocent World, h.NAOTO ruffle boots, and a faux fur jacket from Hong Kong.
I can’t thank my team enough for their hard work (remember they also did my Alt Noir Magazine cover photoshoot?)
It took hours to airbrush and paint every last dot. My poofed hair is my own, except for the lighter purple curls in the front (those are pin-in extensions).
We set up a shooting space inside Avant Garde Hair studio in Vancouver.
When the day was done… a welcome glass of wine!
Incredible work, isn’t it? We shot a few more looks that day… photos to come as soon as possible! Til then, check out the Alt Noir cover pics we did together.
