It's that wise, insightful soul of Absolem which I love so much and see parts of my own self linked to this characters. Although, lets get one thing clear, I do not smoke! In the modern fashion world, I'd Imagine the caterpillar to be an old soul. Although these particular beings often seem very rare, it's usually their introverted personalities and great depth of living which simply flies over the average persons head. Thus, their potential and wisdom goes unnoticed.
I chose to use a clamp curling iron to curl my hair, focusing on the ends to create a vintage look. For the makeup, I, of course, had to go for a smokey blue eye shadow look. I kept the rest of the makeup neutral so there's a perfect balance of the caterpillar's maturity and mystical, wise personality.
For the location, we chose an 1800's mansion to bring forth those 'old-fashioned' vibes. The greenhouse attached on the back, reminded me so much of a place a caterpillar would happily reside in. There was also some lovely, spiral stairs which I felt reflected the movement of the smoke from the caterpillar. It really was all about achieving a balance of fantasy and mysticism with practicality and enlightenment.
