This year, We wanted to do a very pure, monochromatic look for Halloween, since we used to do a lot of gore look and makeup in the previous years. We were inspired by one of last Vogue issues based on Timothy Burton’s work, which I admire and follow since childhood, the whole serie was all in black and white clothings, very simple, with very emaciated faces, pale eyes.
Shot was done in the woods near my house, which I can’t enough of !
The story is based on a wood witch, nicknamed The Light Lady by the villagers around, as she wears only white clothes and appears as a sort of divinity for those people. She actually is a necromancian, trying to wake up the dead from the realm of souls, and after years and years of rituals, it finally worked on the night before All Hallows Eve in the village : She found the breathing corpse of a young aristocrat of the castle nearby, Mary Jane Moonheart.
The witch cast a spell on her, obligating her to stay at her side for all eternity.
Thanks Kévin and Charlotte for the help and backstage pictures !
