That looks like something straight out of the labyrinth.

'Back into the chamber turning,
All my soul within me burning...'

May not have been you intention, but this picture evokes that line for me. A very beautiful piece.

You always impress with your trademark shots but this one is SO special. Your work gently a creative outfit ensemble, with leather-like stylized ruffles and line seams adding abstract touch to the organic motifs (Accurately positioned Heart imprint, skirt seams composed of bone) while helping them all blend together. Smoooth marble skin-tone only helps further dilute the sense of warmness while amping up the marble feel, perfect in tandem with this styling. The distant figure is disquieting with intentionally stylized raven head and dandy attire; a unique mix of black humour and "Memento Mori" evokings. Finally the soft, dim lighting helps set the Gothic atmosphere moreso while maintaining clarity of the models. :star::heart::star:

A perfect harmony of photographic storytelling and an ingenious styling, Just pure imagination and Gothic theory personified! Alongside [link] your best, dunno how further you can go from here. Thank You So Much all here! :iconpolitebowplz:

haha thank you very much!
The skirt was indeed composed of bone, the designer actually hand dyed them all! Very creepy dress but very fun to wear.
I'm glad there was sense of humour to it too, it was so hard not to laugh at the enormous bird mask and all the inhaled feathers! xD

Glad to hear that, You're most welcome!

Yes, the blend of sheer dark fantasy with some quirky humour really made this piece enjoyable... hope to see more of this styling, Thanks a Lot again for this!
