We've heard the word 'makeover' and most of us have tried it countless times. Its a chance to re set your appearance, your broken heart, your tired spirit or your stressed body. For girls it is as little as putting on a lipstick while for guys is as getting a haircut. The power to transform yourself and become someone better is man's nature for self preservation.
Though i must confess that I wont be doing any makeovers soon. This post is somewhat my alternative virtual makeover. I found an archive photo shot by the talented Charles Buenconsejo. It got me inspired to post it. When I'm tired of seeing myself in the same pose, same background, why not change everything? Temporarily of course.

This shoot was done in a very impromptu setup. My close collaborators and good friends Buern and Jake took care of the hair and makeup. It was not meant for anything at all except just to create some incredible photos. Charles wanted to use film for this shoot and not the DSLRs. I just love it. Its so old school. What I admire in using film is the process. It is more highly technical. It makes you want to shoot precise images because you have limited film to use. The use of film gave the photos some serious, dark, gritty element which I go nuts about.

We did around four layouts. Actually one of the first layouts we've done is found in my old looks:

About the look:
I always have a soft spot for oversized clothes, exaggerated proportions, and volume. That is why this leopard coat is such a perfect piece. It has this 1940s and 1950's vibe which i like combining with modern accessories by CUSTODIO for a complete twist.
