Can you think of a creative craft or outlet that screams "I'm coming out!!"? (If so awesome, I'd love to hear it. Please share your ideas and/or thoughts with me in the comment section below.) It took me a minute to figure out what I would focus this weeks content on... then it dawned to me #Lookbook. I mean what could be more perfect?!
For those who are asking... What is a #lookbook?
A #lookbook is a collection of photographs compiled to show off a model, photographer, style, stylist, or clothing line. Usually, bloggers or vloggers will "model" fashionable looks for that month or season. This gives viewers ideas on how to style outfits, or to show what the latest fashions are. -Wikipedia
This week will consist of many first time experiences for me. I have never attempted to put a #lookbook together for crafting purposes however I'm gonna give this a try!! I've done my research and so far it is not intimidating, I think I may have over thought the complexity of it's creation.
I noticed that with the fashion #lookbooks many of them were more of a collage or fancy picture layout like the strawberry pocky themed one above modeled by Lovely Blasphemy. I personally think this is adorable and totally my style this is something similar to what I want to achieve except I want more depth to mine. Take for instant when you see a Luxury Designer catalogue for their upcoming season. Ex: This Digital Flip Book created for Salvatore Ferragomo in their Fall 2020 collection.
What's most important to me is building my brand identify, I feel it gets lost most of the time due to the vast services and products I offer (that and being a nomad, that's a story for another time). Club Bubblegum Inc. was originally a retail digital content creators club. I use to lend my mind and sell my digital creations to various gaming companies. I finally realized that I would never be happy just selling only digital items when my dreams were to be a great designer and see the world wearing my creations. Once I discovered my ability to create physical items was equivalent to my digital developing it was a wrap. I combined my only self proclaimed super powers and licensed them under the same brand. Here I am now going on year 13 with CBI and it seems I'm as clueless as when I first started.
The images above are all my creation from start to finish, it seemed effortless to create Ads and beautiful product pictures. These are old from 2013 but they still represent my brand very well and I am finding it difficult to do the exact same thing with my physical products. Granted I am using digital models that will pose as I make them and I have unlimited camera angles and can edit everything. In simple bleh if anyone has any tips for me please share.
I'm gonna attempt to create a mini #lookbook from start to finish, with #Bubblebat as my main theme. If you wanna see my journey and the finished products stay tuned to my social stumping grounds!! I plan to post new content daily!! Please keep your eyes out for my lastest Vlog drops later on today @ 6:00pm PST on Youtube.
I'm Krystle' and thank you for your support hope you like my content and get inspired!!
