Mrs. Hawking photo shoot I, part two

And here is the second half of the Mrs. Hawking photo shoot. These images are the ones meant to suggest the scenes in the play where Mrs. Hawking and Mary go to Cedric Brockton's ball. And that meant dressing them up fancy!

Mrs. Hawking, version 1
Photography by Stephanie Karol
Hair and makeup by Gabrielle Geller
Directed and costumed designed by Phoebe Roberts

with Frances Kimpel as Mrs. Hawking
and Charlotte Oswald as Mary Stone


Mary in awe of all the fancy people and the splendid surroundings. She is unaccustomed to doing anything so grand.


But while Mary gapes, Mrs. H is always on her guard.

Mary's dress is the wedding dress I got from the thrift store and dyed blue. The tulle on it is not period, but I like the look of it. I wish the tears in the lace weren't so visible. She also wears a faux pearl necklace, freshwater pearl stud earrings, and white gloves embroidered with seed pearls. Gigi gathered her hair in the back in a sort of faux-french braid,  because I thought it should be mostly down. As I said, I see blue as Mary's color.


Mrs. Hawking wears a dark green satin and velour dress that was also thrifted. I imagined her gown in this scene to be gold, but I didn't have one of that color, nor did I think it was necessarily appropriate for a widow's first major social event after her husband's death. The skirt of the green dress is gathered up in the front over two layers of tiered black skirts thoughtfully lent to me by the costume fairy inwaterwrit. Her satin gloves belong to Frances. She also wears a faux pearl necklace and a gold and ruby ring for her wedding ring over the gloves.

I kind of wish I'd just had her hair put all the way up. I tend to prefer hair down as prettier than the alternative, but it would make her look a little more mature.
