Feathers, fishtails, animalistic and a whole lot of wow!
I sectioned out a triangle section through the top of Caitlyn's hair.
Divided it in half and used wax to smooth it down. Braided each side using a two strand braid, only adding to one side. This creates a roll or twist like effect towards the parting.
The rest of her hair was smoothed back and secured into two fishtail braids.
I then fish plaited two 1 meter lengths of hair to secure the ends and attached the lengths at the mid way point, working them into Caitlyn's hair. This created three fish plaits on each side.
I LOVE THIS HAIR!!!
I crafted mask like peacock brows by attaching many small peacock feather tips in layers. The result is scale like.
A fine black vale was plaited on top and large black feather lashes used like a brow.
Metallic gold and olive eyes take colour palette from the peacock feathers, lashes applied to the lower lash line.
Airbrushed skin and a peach pout.
My favorite image!
