Wispy Bones Skeleton Fine Art Halloween Wedding Editorial in Dallas, Texas
As part of an ongoing Halloween series, I participate in fine art editorials each year with a group of creatives. This year I was able to collaborate on 3 different Halloween editorials across the country, including Arizona and Texas. The concept for the Wispy Bones editorial was crafted by one of my favorite bloggers, The J Petite and shot by Ryann Lindsey Photography at Brake and Clutch Warehouse in Dallas, Texas. Last year's Halloween shoot was picked up by The Perfect Palette and Buzzfeed Weddings and I couldn't wait to see what Jessica from The J Petite came up with this year. Wispy Bones is a softer, delicate take on what a Halloween wedding might look like. Much of the skeleton makeup we see has harsh lines with deep insets for eyes so that features fade back. Makeup Artist Laura Lomonaco used soft greys and lighter strokes of white, leaving us with fine, romantic details. Jessica's hair is next level and was styled by The Hair Slinger.
When working on the calligraphy for this editorial, I knew I had to get my hands on some black handmade paper from Share Studios. My favorite detail within the suite is the writing on the back flap of the RSVP envelope which says "don't keep us waiting" (creepy), right? On the main invitation, I wanted to include flowers that looked like they had been left without sun and starting to shrivel in honor of the shoot's tone and things that once were. I blotted the ink on the handmade paper in keeping with the style and somewhat creepiness that I think of when I think of Halloween.
Seeing the floral and greenery installation by Lauren Moran Floral as well as the fresh fruit on the tablescape and rentals by Rent My Dust gave me all the heart eyes. I'd also like to submit a formal request to own that Tatyana Merenyuk dress. The structure at the top of the gown reminded me of a fine art interpretation of bones while the flowy bottom kept with the wispy theme. I hope you guys enjoy the Wispy Bones Halloween editorial as much as we do! Please scroll to the bottom for a full list of vendors.
