I added a few more things from H&M. LOL In addition to this awesome shirt and pin-striped slacks, I wanted to get this double breasted cardigan.
It looked great on the mannequin.
Me... not so much. I kept thinking as to why it looked so horrible on me. I finally came to the conclusion that it probably looks better on a taller, lankier person. Sadness.
Oh well, I still got a couple of things and man they were CHEAP. :> I went ahead and took some pictures. I need them for another project anyway, so here they are.
Lighting was inspired by the Express website/mailers.
Shirt, slacks, jacket = H&M
Tie = I forget, it was for our HanaKimi costumes. LOL
Belt = Men's Warehouse
Forgot to suck in my gut there. But the tie is flippy...
I dunno what the deal is with these superman poses...
Was trying to do a cool, flippy thing with my jacket. Obviously this failed. Though it does look a little like the Get Smart movie poster. LOL
Yah, I can't help it. LOL
And for once, I remembered to take a picture of the light set up.
