Guys n Dolls

July 22, 2011

Almost done now. September 1st is looming.

I had hoped the catalogue would be something that documented the entire project, participation, dialogue and interaction that’s happened over the past year and a half. Budgets are tight so I’m praying for a kind printer. I’ve had so many cups of tea, home made treats, sandwiches, chats and laughs in my many meetings with the ten participants that stuck with me to the end. Here are some more of the recreated fashion shoots.

Bettie S.

This is a shoot we done way back in February, but it’s only getting aired now. I don’t have any shots of the lovely Bettie getting dolled up. Make-up was by Audrey Corrigan and Emma Moffat from IADT. Styling was done by Niamh Hogan.

Eddie McG.

The first man to don the make-up. Eddie’s a pro and didn’t flinch. We were going for a James Dean look. Thanks to the guys in Jamestown Studios, Denise Murray who done make-up, Sorcha McClenaghan for the styling and Eddie the man for being the first male guinea pig.

Mary T.

There were wigs for everyone in this shoot. Thanks to the lovely lady in Hairspray on Wicklow St, to Liam at the Transport Museum in Howth, to Ciara Kerins who done make-up, Sorcha McClenaghan for styling and to the lovely Mary for accommodating us.

I’ve always relied on the kindess of strangers – Tennessee Williams, thanks all.
