“Takarazuka”


So this one’s a pretty different style for me. This piece was inspired by Japanese Takarazuka theatre, in which every role is played by women. I find such androgyny interesting, so with my model Katie’s help (she plays both the guy and the girl), and the very talented makeup artist Aiko, I wanted to try my hand at the aesthetic.

I’ve included some examples of Takarazuka Revue posters, so you can see how the real thing looks:
