Kyary Pamyu Fairy Kei inspired photoshoot

Last week I did a Fairy Kei/Kyary Pamyu inspired photo shoot over the weekend.  This shoot was my first one where I had to create a set for it.  It took alot more time than expected but it was a good learning curve and in the future I am very keen to construct more sets for future shoots.  For those that are not familiar with Fairy Kei or the celebrity Kyary Pamyu here is a mood board so you have a better idea of the style the photo shoot was influenced from.

Here’s a bit of background on both the styles just FYI.

Fairy Kei is a style that started In Japan and mostly consists of pastel colours.  Fairy-kei, also known as “Spank girl” (after the pioneering Fairy-kei brand Spank!), is one of the most recently developed Japanese fashion styles. The style takes a palette of pastel colours and mixes it in with 80s vintage clothing, inspired by kitschy characters like My Little Pony, Popples, Care Bears and Jem & the Holograms. The look often includes tutus, mini frilled shorts, T-shirts with cartoon characters, vintage reebok trainers, scrunchies, silly badges, acid wash denim, bright coloured hair and hand-made accessories in pastels or sparkles.

Kyary Pamyu started as a fashion blogger, and then began her professional career as a model for Harajuku fashion magazines such as Kera! and Zipper.  Known for her unique fashion and popularity amongst the youth culture crowd in Harajuku, Kyary rose to fame by promoting her own line of fake eyelashes as well as going into a singing career releasing her popular hit “PONPONPON”

So here are some of the final shots of the day, I’m very happy with how they came out, shout outs go to Magdeline and Mitch for being my models and providing me with their awesome wardrobe, Set design and wardrobe styling done by myself as well as the photography.  Enjoy guys :).

    OMG this set is amazing. Really awesome job Sam! My fave is the one with the blue megaphone. Could totally see this as an editorial in a fashion magazine.
