Cosplay, Wild West and Gangsters

Ciaron, an actor, armourer and costumier for theatre and cinema, is a regular visitor to the studio. Here’s a compilation from 3 shoots during 2023 including Ganster, Steam Punk, Jason from Friday 13th, Wizard and Wild West themes – all costumes supplied by Cairon, plus props available in our studio.

More Kianis! Vintage 30s shoot

Kianis returned for another shoot but this time to re-create an authentic 30s P G Woodhouse character complete with tails coat top hat monocle and many other props that we have available at our studio. We spent a lot of time perfecting Kianis’s hair and adjusting small costume details to produce a really atmospheric set of images

 

Kianis – Character and Cosplay shoot

After Kianis’s first shoot , we very promptly arranged a follow-up session to pursue themes that we did not have time to cover during our initial meeting. The first theme was a ‘

30s working class/peaky blinders costume combination, we then changed to a more outlandish steam punk alt fashion outfit and finished the shoot with some colourful male fusion images.

The Bard – Musketeer and Napoleonic Shoot

‘The Bard’, Ciaran Davis, is an actor, costumier, armourer and stuntman. Every so often he visits the studio with an authentic historical costume. Our latest shoot was no exception. Ciaran supplied a fully authentic French late 18th century Musketeers costume complete with antique Spanish sword and also a Napoleonic soldier’s costume. I set up a couple of small stage sets comprising of various props to compliment the period of the outfits. Ciaran skilfully employed his acting skills to characterise each scenario.

Portrait, Fashion and Fantasy shoot with Leon

Leon booked a shoot to update his modelling portfolio. We started with some high-contrast edgy black and white portraits, followed by more editorial images, then covered brighter more colourful sports and fashion shots and finished the shoot with a series of  sci-fi, leather fantasy shots.

Hollywood Glamour, 70s leather and Steam Punk duo shoot with Poppy and Darren

Poppy (IG @poppy_valentines) got in touch to arrange a duo shoot with Darren (IG @darrensmodel) to boost her portfolio with some duo retro and cosplay images. Our first theme was a 50s Hollywood starlet scenario, followed by some 70s alt rocker images. The duo then transformed themselves into a Steam Punk couple for the last set.  The many costumes and props available at our studio  were combined with the models costumes to give extra authenticity to all the themes.
