I love everything about this, i love the colours and it fits in with my circus theme really well. i really like the colour with the pin stripes. This is something what i would like my outcome to be like.
Some more Burlesque inspiration to look at. I’m really loving the colours and the cute little hotpants. The colours work really well, still reminds you of circus, but more of a sexy take on it. Who will you be?
Ginger the dancing darling, Gypsy the heart-breaker, Lola the burlesque sensation, or Rose the cabaret spectacular?

More circus themed inspiration to look at. Colours work well & again more pin stripes. Pin stripes work well for circus. The makeup i’m not too sure on, it looks a little drag queen for me… i’m thinking something a more doll like? Fantasy like?
Laura Wesson’s illustrations of women are influenced by fashion, beauty and attitude. She uses ink, pencils and oils to create her enticing portraits.
I really like this, it has a very sexy, circus theme to it i think. very burlesque. I love the heart under her eye to, it adds to the doll like/circus makeup that i’m looking for. I think it’s good to look at different things for inspiration as it helps for ideas.
I seen this and it has a very circus/burlesque feel to it. The strong colour of the red dress and the style of the vintage chairs in the background along with the dark atmosphere. It just has the look/feeling to it.
I probably won’t be on this for a while as i’m doing all my research in my sketch book. I will upload the rest of my pages when i’ve done them. =) If i see something interesting or something i like i will upload or blog though.
So i know i do my research a little different from other people, but this is how i like to do my research. I start of gathering a load of different images to do with my theme, which i like or interest me and i collage them together to make my pages in my sketch book look interesting. I think it works well with my theme this way also.
A circus is commonly a travelling company of performers that may include clowns, acrobats, trained animals, trapeze acts, musicians, hoopers, tightrope walkers, jugglers, unicyclists and other stunt-oriented artists. The word also describes the performance that they give, which is usually a series of acts choreographed to music and introduced by a ringmaster. A traditional circus performance is normally held in a ring 13 m (42 ft) in diameter. This dimension was adopted by Philip Astley to enable a horse rider to stand upright on a cantering horse to perform a series of acrobatic manoeuvres and to more easily retain their balance. Most modern circuses have a system of tiered seating around the ring for the public and since the late 19th early 20th century the performance has taken place under canvas and more recently plastic tents commonly called “The Big Top” .
