Sunday 15 July 2012: Green Dream
(Taken with a Polaroid camera, using Impossible Film. Border cropped, and adjusted in Lightroom)
I have the privilege of being friends with many immensely talented and creative people, and one of these people is MsDream (also known as Rachael Forbes).
As well as being one of the loveliest people I know, she's an inspiration. Rachael is a hard worker, so when i'm procrastinating, just thinking about her industriousness gives me a kick up the ass.
She set up her own business, The Imaginarium Apparel, after graduating with a first in Costume Design at Edinburgh College of Art. Her beautiful designs delight my senses, sending my imagination into overdrive. She's a walking work of art, always dressed flamboyantly, gliding through the streets of Edinburgh like a glittering apparition. Rachael, and her Anisoptera creation, contributed to the character of the mysterious Lizard Queen in the novel I'm writing. Her own inspirations can be found in the world of insects and amphibians, and designers such as Alexander McQueen, all of which can be found on her blog.
