The polly fashion challenge is a yearly competition that I run out of my apartment in NYC. I run it for three weeks each year and I can’t wait to see what I am able to create. This challenge is a great incentive to get back to basics and experiment with different ways of dressing myself.
Last night I created a new version of Polly Fashion. I found a great photo of a woman wearing a black suit and a white shirt while I was walking in Central Park. I was inspired by this photo and decided to make a black dress with a white shirt in the same color and a white dress. I was able to make it completely black and mix it with a white shirt. I’m excited to see how it looks in person.
I’m a big fan of using photos for inspiration as much as I like to make it. This is a very simple but effective project, and one that I’m actually in the process of trying to figure out how to make more of, since it seems to be a bit of a challenge to work with black and white, or even a photo that is mostly black and white.
Just make sure it’s not a photo of a random person in your photo gallery.
A lot of people are confused with the lack of white shirts in the first scene of the trailer. I’m sure some of you are too.
One of the most frustrating things about making movies is that as you get better at it, you get better at making them. The reason I didn’t think of this as a problem is because we are making a movie (in the sense of a narrative) that I am writing the script for, so I feel like it is really important to make the actors look well-rounded and believable.
I have mixed feelings about white shirtless scenes. The first one is obviously terrible. I think our actors (and actresses) need to be encouraged to dress a little more appropriately in this case, but I do think that white shirts are pretty self-explanatory. Just wear something that shows off your muscles.
The thing is, it’s not like it’s a hard requirement for anyone to wear a shirtless scene in a movie. It’s a really big part of the movie, so I think it should be encouraged.
I think the shirtless scenes are always done for stylistic reasons or just to remind us of the seriousness of the story. I just think we need to keep that in mind. But I do think that if we all dress like the characters, and the characters feel comfortable in their own skin, then it is a lot more believable. I think that’s the biggest reason why I want a shirtless scene so much.
Well, not all of us have the means to afford formal wear. We could still dress like the characters in the film without the benefits of a wardrobe.
