The Story Behind My "Belle" Costume

Halloween is one of my favorite holidays! I love when people get super creative and have a one of kind out of the box Halloween costume that will make me chuckle; thinking, hey that was pretty clever!

Since Halloween is right around the corner I thought I'd share my experience in making my costume last year. I had tried on several different kinds princesses, pirates, fairies.. I didn't really like ANYTHING! (I am incredible picky and always think I can do it better) It came down to the week right before Halloween My lovely cousin/assistant who came on the multiple trips to the Halloween stores with me, looked me in the eye and exclaimed "why don't you just make your own!!" well of course the thought had crossed my mind, but for some reason or another I never really considered it. I thought well maybe I could, but I would wanna do it right, and having a week deadline was my biggest concern. After continuous reassurance from my cousin, I finally said OK!

Since the age of  6 seeing all my friends in pretty matching Disney princess gowns always inspired me to make my own! I've always wanted to be "Belle" from Beauty in the Beast! She is my most favorite princess and I have been obsessed with her golden (because yellow sounds to plain!) gown for years!

 I had a super fun time making it and it's still one of favorite pieces. I don't think Ill ever be able to part with it!  I made it with a golden ( crepe back satin, gold glitter tulle, yellow ribbon and gold chain. I put the gold chain on the front and back princess seams and criss crossed the chain in the back. I put 12 gold grommets in each bow on the gathered bottom panels. I made a detachable belt which ties into a huge bow in the back. Its amazing. I love it!!

If you ever made your own costume I'd love to hear your stories!!! Leave me a comment!

Never forget your Leo Lynn Clutch!

Its your most essential item!!

Prestigefoto got in touch with me after seeing one of my "Ashley" clutches and he immediately had an idea to do an ad campaign. I loved his concepts and couldn't wait to start working on the series of ads. We contacted Autumn Moore to run in heels on a ledge She agreed and it made for a wonderful shoot! Since I will be releasing a few exclusive Leo Lynn Clutches on Etsy I wanted to share a few images from the first session. Please leave me feedback!! I'd love to know your thoughts!

La Jolla Photoshoot

Back in July I did a photoshoot with Whitney Danielle she was sweet in a rebel southern belle sort of way. I loved her! she posed without much direction and was willing to do whatever it took to get the best shot! Once again I worked with the wonderful Prestigefoto Team. We always have a good time and they take great images!!

Here are a few of my favorite shots:

Baby Shower Invites

It's been a full month since the baby shower and I still have yet to show the fun invitations I made :) 
I love being creative so anything that allows me to make things from nothing Im obsessed with! When you take your time to make something with your own hands it means so much more to me, I feel a personal connection with anything I create. So when I found out my cousin was having a little girl I knew I had to make the invitations. I know one day in the far away future she will look back and love that her baby shower invites were handmade just for her and that thought puts the biggest smile on my face. + my cousin is my awesome assistant and I would do anything for her because she helps me sooo much!!! ♥

Here are the Invites!! + the onesie I made for a game we played (she knew it was mine right away!) 

***ps: my cousin might be having her baby girl this weekend!!

Behind The Scenes

A few weeks ago I did a Photoshoot with an amazing photography team-Prestigefoto and a super cute model who is new to california- Autumn Moore. We shot in Oceanside, Ca at the Beach which is actually my hometown and where I still currently reside.

We did the ad campaign shoot with 2 of my clutches which will be released soon on my Etsy :)

The clothes we shot were from my Summer 11 Collection. While shooting one outfit we had the most horrible heckler trash talking my model. I dislike negativity so I said to the lady "Its fine your a hater, but if this professional shoot is bothering you so much just walk away"
I dont understand why she had to bash my model because her boyfriend was standing where we were shooting. She obviously has unhappiness in her heart and I hope she figures that out soon.

Ok so now! :)
Enjoy a few behind the scenes shots:

May*Star's Fashion Whore

Maystar is the go to fashion girl. She throws these dance party/fashion shows on the first saturday of every month in San Diego at the Ruby Room. Its a super fun time with the most incredible indie designers showcasing their work.

I had been hearing about these parties and seeing my peers participating, I couldn't wait to get my chance to be a part of the runway show!

I had finally worked up the nerve to ask her if she was still looking for designers and was committed to do anything I could to be apart of the show on July 2nd.

I had the most amazing expierence and would love to do it again!!!

I have to say Thanks to:
*Maystar! without her none of this would of happened.
*Zulema Reyes & Danielle Verde the MUA's that made my girls look awesome!  
*Photographers: Dominick Valentic, Rocky Forguson, Firegrille Interactive Media, & Dmitry Word Photography. Without you guys  I would not have all these great shots!!

A special thank you to all my gorgeous models who really brought Leo Lynn Designs to LIFE!
