Odessa's Spell by Lillyxandra Odessa's Spell by Lillyxandra
Odessa the Sea Witch
Yesterday I did a shoot with photographer Greg de Stefano and model Kat Steel, wearing my original costume, Odessa the the Sea Witch.

My inspiration behind this costume comes from some of my childhood favorite toys: Mermista from She-Ra [link] and Dutchess Ravenwaves from Lady Lovely Locks. [link] I wanted to create a sexy villainess who rules the murky depths of the ocean.

I will be posting a video tutorial on how to replicate the make-up for this shoot!

Cheers!
JoEllen

If you had your own perfume line, THIS would be the piece to advertise it with. Glamorous and exotic, but with a little bit of BITCH to put your man in his place!

So far, I love the shells and the sleeves! Are those pearls and crystals in the shells? What are those made of?

My goodness, lady...I hope you know how AMAZING you are ^_^

this is going to sound really stupid, but it took me a second to realize that was the bottle's qork in her hand and not a cinnamon toast crunch hahahaha. i know i know.

but OH MY GOD! this is such gorgeous photography and the costume has no words to describe its awesomeness!
