Costume from Gormenghast

I had this great pleasure to photograph a model in costume straight from Gormenghast on my last modeling portfolio shoot


Costume straight from GORMENGHAST, a place that is not set in any particular time or era, place isolated from the outside world by inhospitable regions of ocean inhabited by sea creatures.

Main influence comes from cut and pattern of traditional Russian outfits with this outlandish character. Pattern of textiles are inspired by underwater world surrounding Gormenghast – typical fishes, water plants, corals and other sea creatures. Here is a link to Gormenghast official website.

Costume courtesy clothing designer Karolina Faliszek. MUA Dorota – Make-up.
