Moirae by Keizie Moirae by Keizie
I made the tutu myself :).

I had this concept in my head for a while. I wanted to portray a spirit, a fairytale/myth character who rules over destiny and death. My models hair is over 120 cm long. I worked with her before, and knew she was perfect for the idea.

Moirae: The Greek word moira (μοῖρα) literally means a part or portion, and by extension one's portion in life or destiny. They controlled the metaphorical thread of life of every mortal from birth to death. (Wikipedia)

Congratulations on the second DD! I had my first yesterday. Anyway, Fantastic shot, amazing concept and the model is perfect. Her hair blowing/flying up like that really adds to the power of this picture. It's like she's expelling a great amount of force from within her body. Beautiful

Love your take on the Moirae!
Fun idea to use this title as a name for a fairytale-like character.

The make-up is very fitting and skillfully done. The tutu looks great, too.
And..the hair. Oh my, it's so loooong and beautiful. A big thumbs up for the model for swinging her hair like a madman to get this lovely shot!
Keep up the great work, this DD is well deserved!
