I didn’t actually intend for this look to end up so creepy looking, but this photo was hands down my favourite. What can I say! I have a thing for creepy and mildly disturbing. I wanted her to look slightly sad in the pictures as though most of her visions were dark or quite depressing…

Bird Queen

I seem to have a thing for queens lately. Dragon Queen, Butterfly Queen, but queens are awesome so it’s ok! I came so close to using my black sclera lenses for this look. In the end it didn’t, and I’m quite happy I didn’t or it might have ended up looking a frightening. I made the beak…

Winged Rhinestone

Yes, I needed a rhinestone to this look! I mainly did this tutorial so that I could have a decent picture to put on the Author section for Outsider, I’d been looking through all my pictures and there was absolutely nothing that was appropriate.
