These are pictures from my Senior Show, Act I of “The Rings”: A Cinematic Storytelling by Sierra Bennett
I remember how much effort it took to make these, how much time and how I was taking like 6 classes along with doing my senior show. I also had a job waitressing. I don’t know how I did it. Probably the drive to make something I truly believed in. Something I made. I was influenced by Cindy Sherman’s classic ” Untitled Film Stills” and her use of Noir settings (look it up kids- I mean it!). I think she is amazing and was really drawn to her in Art History. She was a woman after my own heart. Doing her makeup, costumes and putting together a miniature story.
I love storytelling, it’s an art form that is unto itself. I realized I wanted to make sense of a story instead of just random film stills. I felt as though I was telling a story I could still leave the audience guessing.
*Fun fact: These were taken at the Appalachian Student Center at North Georgia College & State University. It’s a really old house. really creep and I promise we heard some freaky noises that no one could have done or that could be explained*
Stay tuned for Act II tomorrow!
I’m a curvy girl, whether I’m smaller or bigger I always have/had curves.
When dressing my curves I like to add to play them up. Now for a dress look, I would say add a belt or a blazer. Blazers are my favorite- the structured blazer is your friend! It nips you in and creates the illusion of a waist if you don’t have a natural one. You can play them dress, casual or work appropriate. Belts, especially skinny belts also do wonders my friend- they can make a waist on a beautiful sheath dress.
My new creation/look:
I’ve always loved watching Bewitched and one of the main reasons, especially when I was little, was the fashion. I loved the styles of Samantha and especially the wild Sabrina. I’ve always been a fan of retro clothing and my favorite websites for such clothing are: shopruche, modcloth and shabby apple. They have such cute clothing and accessories!
Below is a little outfit consisting of all three websites and inspired by Bewitched.
