DECO DETAILS

SPARKLES AND FEATHERS AND FUR – OH MY!

 

I recently worked on a project requiring a significant amount of wardrobe homework worthy of sharing. The project was an editorial portrait on location. My wardrobe pitch to the publication was simple: formal looks with Art Deco influences. READ MORE

Sugru: Self Setting, Flexible Silicone Rubber

New product loved by the hacker community and coveted by yours truly.

Sugru molds like play-dough, bonds to almost anything, and self-sets into flexible silicone after 24-hours. The ‘WTF is Sugru’ video above illustrates the many uses of this product. From custom grips on skis to repairing damaged cables, the potential uses of Sugru are broad. I can see Sugru becoming an essential item in my kit used for basic repairs, fixes, and prop making. It is important to note that Sugru is heat-resistant up to 356° Farenheit so any custom rigging or hacking around hot lights will not melt, burn, or smoke like other adhesive or putties; AWESOME!   READ MORE

Falling Models, Tumbling Talent, and Slippery Shoe Solutions

Runway models are not alone in experiencing slides, slips, and falls.  Underestimating the power of a polished floor, we have all found ourselves flat on the floor, humiliated, and looking for the closest piece of furniture to crawl underneath.

I use one or both of these methods to prep slick, new shoes that will be worn by on-camera talent.  These very simple stylist tricks can prevent both talent tumble as well as personal embarrassment:

  • Sandpaper: Lightly scuff the bottoms of new shoes with sandpaper. Be careful not to scuff the sides of the shoes or any area that will be visible to camera. I keep both 80 grit and 120 grit sandpaper in my kit.
  • Hairspray: Spritz the bottoms of the shoes with strong hold hairspray and let the spray dry for about a minute until it’s sticky to the touch.  Spray as needed.  I keep Nexxtacy by Nexxus in my kit because it is super sticky and alcohol free.

★ Make sure the hairspray will not damage the flooring surface. If you are uncertain, ask the art department, location manager, or props.
