A few weeks ago in time for Halloween, we dressed up as goths for a segment in Fashbook, a local TV Show hosted by the lovely IT girl/hyphenate Solenn Heusaff which aired in GMA News TV. My designer/stylist friend Jane Econar was interviewed for her fascination with Goth fashion, while we modeled. The girls wore couture dresses which included her creation featured on the ramp during the Fashion Institute of the Philippines Grad show this year, while us boys wore off the rack clothes which we mixed and matched to get the desired theme. Anyway even if our location was dark and eerie beneath the creepy looking Balete trees in UP Diliman Campus in Quezon City we still managed to deviate our thoughts, enjoy and have fun!. 🙂
The Fashbook shoot which featured Goth fashion in one of its segments.
Here are some still shots from Fashbook where we modelled Goth styles inspired by the dark mysterious characters of Morticia Addams, a Vampire, Bride of Frankenstein, and a Warlock
Fashion designer/Stylist Jane Econar interviewed about her fascination, inspirations and some tips and trivias about Goth Fashion.
I am fascinated with almost everything about fashion, and the dark, weird and mysterious Goth style is of no exception. I love to change my style every now and then, and trying to look my part as a goth this time for the cameras is definitely something that I enjoyed hehe. I didn’t mind looking roguishly bad with the dark eyeliners and black lipstick that I have to wear courtesy of hair and makeup artist Leynan Urca. I guess I’d try this look again occasionally.
Were all in character. Clockwise from top: “ME” (U-Ned) as the dark and mystical Warlock, Eia in a mysteriously fashionable Morticia Addams stance, Dren is as agile as a Vampire in a tree, and Chloe is elegantly macabre as the Bride of Frankenstein.
With the Fashbook staff, we definitely had fun in this shoot. Thank you guys! 🙂
Anyway here are more behind the scene photos:
Be sinisterly but stylishly Goth in these clothes and accessories which are predominantly black. Take a cue from Fashion designer/stylist Jane Econar’s interview: ” Its all about getting the inspiration, then mix and match the right elements to get the look.”
Selfies are always a must for us haha!. 🙂
Having our own photo ops as we take turns during the shoot. Aliw aliwin ang sarili pag may time 🙂
