Fashion Challenge 4: Sexy Safari

Okay, so I went ahead and put in an entry in the most recent fashion challenge. If you have a few moments, go take a look at everyone’s pics and rate them! I flaked out the last time, so I didn’t want to miss this one.

I had fun choosing the outfit for this challenge, and even more fun taking the pics in the setting that my friend Ranulph Graves (who, btw, is a pro at Photoshop and I keep pestering him about when he’s going to start a Flickr account) helped me find and set up.

I chose a leopard print strapless dress from Ivalde and paired it with red pailette earrings from Paper Couture and red slingback pumps from Shiny Things. To really give it an 80s Duran Duran music video feel, I used the Romance hairstyle from Cake. ^_^ Photos shot in Insula Maris.

The shot that I chose as my entry:

Second Style Fashion Challenge 4

I actually like this shot better, but passed over it in favor of the previous since the outfit shows up in less detail and this *is* a fashion challenge :p


And here is Ran at Insula Maris… photos aren’t the only things he’ll shoot. :p No llamas were harmed during this photoshoot:

Ran is gonna show those llamas he means business

  3. Hi Melanie – Just checking out your blawg 😉 I do love your safari entry…I must have missed it. I tried one entry a couple months back and haven’t done it again since then. Might try again though – it’s fun to dress with a purpose.

  4. Okay, Ran said that those guns were called “Redemptions”.
