#BTS: I started a blog- The Glam-Bot Lifestyle Promo Shoot
I’m a visual type of person so I knew with this project I wanted new, dope graphics and most importantly I wanted to work with fresh up and coming creatives such as myself. A promo shoot was the perfect way to launch my vision! My dress was inspired by infamous designer Michael Costello. I instantly fell in love with the dress when I saw it on instagram last year! I actually called LA to Michael Costello’s studio to inquire on pricing. I later found out the dress detailed for about $1000.00 retail. Now I like to think I’m a fancy type of girl but this Glam-Bot is very budget friendly in terms of how much I spend on ensembles.
I decided to have the dress made! I reached out to the beautifully talented Scarlette Monroe owner and creative mind of RedFunk Closet custom made clothing in Southfield. Scarlette made my dress from scratch and I swear she exceeded my expectations!!!!! I paid a little over $100.00 for her services. I received so much love off my dress I felt like a star!
I had no idea where I was going shoot my images and I’m very thankful for my friend and photographer, Erica, of VP Photography. We shot at The Belt, a super artsy alley way located in downtown Detroit. The location was fun, whimsical and the perfect ambiance for my “posh city girl vibe”!! P.S. BOOK VP Photography she has brand photography sessions available!
My SUPER AMAZING video was shot by film director, artist, producer, musician and my God-brother -lol- DJ KidEazy owner of Kideazy films. I’m so honored to have such talent agree to come on board with this project! I’m overly pleased with the outcome of all visuals for the launch! P.S. BOOK him for all your video needs!!! Lastly let’s get into the Glam of it all!!! My makeup was completely BEAT TO CAPACITY by Tiara-Darling, she is one of my favorite makeup artist in the metro Detroit area. My hair was provided by Elite Virgin Hair Co. and my install was done by Jlarice Hair owner and proprietor of Unforgettable Girlz Beauty Bar located in Detroit! These ladies had me out here looking like a SNACK!!
I want to say THANK YOU 1000 times over to my team for this shoot, I couldn’t have pulled it off without you!!!!! Lastly SUPER DUPER THANK YOU to my Best Friend and Glam-Bot Creative Director, Mrs. Jasmine Carter owner of the Houston, Texas based Simplicity Marketing Group!! Thank you for pushing me even when I don’t want to be pushed and mostly for believing in my Dreams ❤️ So there you have it, ISSA Blog y’all! Stay connected with me, I have so many things planned for my Glam-Bots, Comment, Share and Connect with me!
