  • claracolette January 23rd, 2012 3:14 PM

    • Eleanor January 23rd, 2012 3:32 PM

      these were taken with a canon 5d mk ii, printed, then rescanned!

  • Georgie January 23rd, 2012 3:22 PM

    These pictures are so gorgeous it kind of made me want to go outside and be all glittery. But it’s twenty past eight and freezing outside, so yeah. The point is, AMAZING SHOOT.

  • eggzonable January 23rd, 2012 3:24 PM

  • all-art-is-quite-useless January 23rd, 2012 3:31 PM

    These pictures are so mystical and otherworldly. The glitter – its like fairy dust – is so perfect.

    These photos are amazing, but the glitter definitely makes them magical!

  • Stephanie January 23rd, 2012 3:44 PM

    These are so gorgeous! 5-7 are going on my mood board for the novel I’m working on!

  • missblack January 23rd, 2012 3:49 PM

    I really like the glitter-over-photo effect, very cool!!

    also why are all the Rookie photographers obsessed with prism effects?!?


  • Sasssquatch January 23rd, 2012 4:00 PM

  • moonchild January 23rd, 2012 4:24 PM

    Literally amazing. I love the triple exposure (if that’s what its called… I’m a n00b at photography)

    Keep up the wonderful work


  • jeanette January 23rd, 2012 4:24 PM

    Number 10 looks like a precious stone! Oh my GODDDD! She’s so pretty and the glitter is so beautiful. Ahhhh. <33

  • darksideoftherainbow January 23rd, 2012 4:31 PM

    the glitter and stars on these made me really happy…an awesome mood lifter. would it be possible to let me know what that gorgeous lip color the lovely Baitong is wearing? it’s really beautiful and looks great on her!

    • Eleanor January 23rd, 2012 7:06 PM

      it’s revlon va va violet, it’s the best dark lipstick i’ve ever found!

      • darksideoftherainbow January 23rd, 2012 7:27 PM

  • Sarah_Colee January 23rd, 2012 4:33 PM

    Amazing photos! I love the last one! xxx

  • moonchild January 23rd, 2012 4:38 PM

    What did you do to the pictures to give them these cool effects? Like with the stars and glitter and tinted colors?

    You said you re-scanned them, so did you actually glue the sequins and glitter on the actual paper and use like watercolors or something and THEN re-scan them?

    Or did you do that on a computer program?

    Thanks so much!! (I am a curious little nugget!)


    • Eleanor January 23rd, 2012 7:08 PM

      i edited the colours and such on photoshop, then printed them, then mirren kessling ( decorated them with gold leaf, sequins and glitter for me, before rescanning them. i’m glad you like the effect!

  • lilylaughs January 23rd, 2012 4:41 PM

    These are beautiful – #8 is especially amazing!

  • Claudia January 23rd, 2012 4:55 PM

    these are gorgeous! it’s seriously too hard to pick a favorite

  • Ruby B. January 23rd, 2012 5:18 PM

    Sooo pretty! I love the glitter. And the title fits all the pictures so well!

  • twoson January 23rd, 2012 5:28 PM

    i think i’m in love

  • unicorn January 23rd, 2012 5:32 PM

    I love seven, it makes the glitter look almost like a natural part of the plants, so it seemed like she was walking in some sort of magic fairy dream world.

  • mwong1025 January 23rd, 2012 6:12 PM

    Am I the only only one who appreciate the confetti and glitter added to the photos? Hopefully not. I love the 5th photo because it reminds me a lot of the Mert & Marcus spread in W March 2011. #fashionnerdproblems

  • Tourdivoire January 23rd, 2012 6:12 PM

    Oh boy. Such beauty. Such beauty.
    #1 and #5 are my faves, but really they’re all special, the girl is so magnetic, the glitter is amazing… These are perfect.

  • hillary January 23rd, 2012 6:32 PM

    i was listening to regina sepktor’s cover of john lennon’s ‘real love’ when i saw these and it was awesome <3

  • kahli January 23rd, 2012 6:50 PM

    How did you get the effects for #6 & 9. It is so cool. I cant seem to nail it by experimentation. Thanks :D

  • bedazzledbandannas January 23rd, 2012 7:06 PM

    ohhh my god these are amazing! the glitter-over-photo idea was inspired (as was its placement!) I love love love numbers 1, 2, and 10.

  • ivoire January 23rd, 2012 7:26 PM

    I’m seriously obsessed with the Risto jacket and skirt. These pics are so beautiful!

  • TessAnnesley January 23rd, 2012 8:42 PM

    I feel like these could be stills from a Stevie Nicks/Warpaint/Islet/Gang Gang Dance video.
    Their people need to hire Eleanor, let’s MAKE THAT HAPPEN. :D

    • Eleanor January 24th, 2012 8:30 AM

    • Anaheed January 23rd, 2012 9:18 PM

      Oh yeah, that’s our other site, where we make lists of…sports…people. And use a lot of White-Out.

  • Marlena January 23rd, 2012 9:37 PM

    These are sooooo gorgeous! I love the extra added glitter effects, too! *__*

  • January 23rd, 2012 10:22 PM

    I like the outfit in #2. It has a kind of whimsical ‘Alice’ quality.

  • Chloe Elizabeth January 23rd, 2012 10:45 PM

    Wow. #10. I adore it.

  • Emilie January 23rd, 2012 10:49 PM

  • MichyMich January 23rd, 2012 10:52 PM

    Lovely photos! I love the clothes – whimsical, yet dark and romantic. It’s very Givenchy meets Alice in Womderland with a dash of Stevie Nicks.

  • kwhite4 January 23rd, 2012 11:25 PM
