I was going to call this post green goblin and then I remembered that he’s a villain and that stopped in my tracks. Interesting how there’s many “green” superheroes though. Green Lantern, Green Arrow and not to forget The Hulk!
Enough about superheroes and my weird ideas for blog titles. I found this odd green coat a while back at second hand store when I was actually looking for skirts. I call it odd because the fabric is basically as thin as a shirt fabric yet it has a hood, buttons and pockets like any other coat. It was again one of those garments that was somehow just a bit off that I just had to try it on. Since it’s a garment that was made in Finland the original price was around 35€ but I think I got it for 10€. Now, who doesn’t love a bargain?
Weeks later I found the turquoise fabric I got at a clothing swap at school and got the idea for this almost tone on tone photoshoot. The only problem? It was constantly dark outside and fabric was not really big enough to cover the background. I kept postponing the shoot until one Saturday morning I just decided to do it. It was one of those “done is better that perfect” moments. Now, should I have ironed the background fabric and the coat? Yes! But on this particular Saturday I just couldn’t be bothered. I was more focused on taking the pictures in a different way than I’ve done before. And I have to say I’m quite happy with them, despite the bad light and textile wrinkles. I can’t wait for the warm weather when I can wear this coat outside!
