In a world overrun by gorehounds, art freaks and die-hard fans of the state of the art, freedom of expression has been a fundamental feat. As a fashion model in-the-making, I simply adore the artsy concepts of fashion photo shoots. I had to admit my LOOKBOOK passion is mounting this year: gradually adding extra to my definition of ordinary. Talk about classy and sassy!

My bff Letty got to ask me (a year ago) to do a Rick Genest look, and I honestly do not have any idea who he was by that time. It took me a week after to find out that he was that skull guy in the Born This Way MV. (We certainly all have our own fair share of I’m-such-a-loser-for-not-knowing-it experiences, this was definitely mine!) We never got the chance to do the shoot last year due to time and distance constraints. And then semestral break came, and we’ve decided to finish what we’ve started by re-creating the whole idea and figure the whole thing together. Now, to state the obvious, we’ve fortunately fabricated an avant garde, magazine-type LOOKBOOK photo shoot: a rarity for me.

Hugely inspired by "Rico, The Zombie Boy", Letty made use of concealers, eyebrows, paint brushes and poster paints for the face. And then with her unfailing words of advice, the wardrobe was all mine! I have always been intensely fascinated with the human anatomy, all things B&W, and the morbid stuff — evidently, this was a mishmash of my fancy sinister obsession.

I was completely unaware that the art on Rick’s body were tattoos (That freakin’ hurts!), though, I sort of guessed! If my spotty memory served me well, I have delved into his website for like a thousand times already. And then here comes SPOOKBOOK.NU Halloween Costume Contest. I couldn’t have think of any other gear to immortalize my concept of Halloween: “I just need to do Rick Genest!” Big thanks to Letty! Hope I did justice to the look coz’ without a doubt, there’s no way of denying that I am decidedly a Rick Genest fan!
