Seven Deadly Sins
LUST One of the seven Deadly sins is Lust. According to DeadlySins.Com, “Lust is an inordinate craving for the pleasures of the body.” I wanted to created a look that had a glossy complexion and one that included a smudged lip.
GLUTTONY DeadlySins.Com has described gluttony to be an “inordinate desire to consume more that which one requires.” Many may quickly think of ideas such a heavy food consumption but I wanted to create a character that mirrored wealthy villains that I had watched in films growing up much like Cruella De Vil.
PRIDE or Vanity is seen as the “excessive belief in ones own abilities that interferes with ones recognition of the grace of God” says DeadlySins.Com. This character that I created follows the likeness of a Beauty Pageant winner that we see has make up running down her face as she wins her crown in which she validates herself from.
E N V Y “Envy is the desire of others traits, status, ability or situation” says DeadlySins.com. I couldn’t help but use shades of green, inspired by the famous saying, “Green with Envy”.
S L O T H Sloth is described to be “the avoidance of physical and spiritual work”, according to DeadlySins.com. I used deep purples and blues to give a nod to dark undereye bags to further the lethargic feel that sloth exudes.
G R E E D DeadlySins.com says that “Greed is the desire for material wealth or gain, ignoring the realm of the spiritual.” This character wears luxurious fur and clutches the material wealth to give them a sense of purpose.
Carole Baskin was a massive part of Tiger King and divided the audience debating wether or not she had killed her husband. This was a second transformation that I did and I’m really proud of how it turned out.
As a Film and T.V student, aspects of current trends of series and movies continually have an influence on my work. This was my first attempt as a transformation and it is the one and only Tiger King, Joe Exotic. I like to have fun with my work so I put Joe Exotic into drag to help my look stand out that bit further.
