I was beyond flattered when I received this message from cosplayer Annamaria Quaresima a.k.a. Annathetekken that she had created a costume inspired by my Dragoon Warrior Collection! I wanted to share it with everyone!! She also made a behind the scenes video you have to check out!
I’m a great fan of Lillyxandra as costume designer and makeup artist and all she does;
also her collaboration with the photographer Indigo is the best! I truly love both of them and always
follow their work. Watching their photos and video arose in me the desire of making originals costumes. So seeing Lillyxandra’s sets of dragon warriors give me the inspiration to make my own one.
I made a warrior’s dress, using “organza” with embroidered velvet flowers, “fake” leather and polyethylene foam for the armor and sword. The model is my friend Erika Stroppa who i am in tune with, the location is “Gola del Furlo” Italy. Also Rita Bongiorno(MUA), Mattia Solazzi (assistant),Daniele Legramante(video shooting) and Stefano Montalbini (assistant and editing) help me a lot.
