I came across Kirsty Mitchell through Pinterest just after she had taken the online world by storm. I clicked on the link and was led to an article on Mail Online with a heading about cancer. No offence to Kirsty and her story (which you should definitely read in the article), but I was so taken with the amount of detail and artistry that went into each, totally UN-photoshopped, image that I really didn’t care about her reasoning behind doing them. Kirsty, in collaboration with make-up artist Elbie Van Eeden, took 3 years working after hours and weekends to create these elaborate costumes and headdresses by hand, and on a shoe-string budget nogal. I am just SO impressed with what they managed to achieve.
