Firestarter, do you wanna set it off?!

I think this was the most interesting thing I did with DAVID after school. I worked on a couple costumes for a music video by the Kings of the Revolution! Yay! It was fun working for my friend, Bolaji Kekere-Ekun (or K-E-X as his own Sasha Fierce,lol) who is a film director in Los Angeles. I had to conceptualize, sketch, and send them to him for approval or rejection (the rejection part wasn't cool) ;-)The first scene which starts at 1.00 shows the 1st outfit. It was inspired by a fairy but one brought to life by a mad scientist in a frigid environment (who K-E-X played).


Conceptualization + Finished design

Tafero's scene came second at 1.50 and portrayed a gladiator and a goddess. That outfit was inspired by a scene Bolaji sent to me from the Matrix III.


I looovvveee this dress! x
 
The Sage's scene was great too! Mo Coco Ninalowo played the oracle in the video. She looked STUNNING in DAVID! And may I just add that nous Canadiennes were rawking the video! (Tafero, Mo and DAVID... Yessss....)
And here is the grand video. Quite deep, I must say. I especially LOVE the end! Great work Kings of the Revolution! ;-)




Erm, here's a pic of one of the countless times my finger got busted sewing the hemp rope into those beautiful spirals on Mo's bust. 



The things I do for love...Hmph!


xxx,
David
