Three Nails Workshop: Gatsby

THIS IS A WORKSHOP IVE BEEN WANTING TO DO FOR A LONG TIME. I KNEW THAT IT WOULD TAKE ALOT OF WORK & EFFORT BECAUSE THERE ARE SO MANY DIFFERENT ELEMENTS TO PULL THIS THEME TOGETHER. NOT ONLY DO YOU HAVE TO HAVE A TON OF MODELS TO MAKE THIS WORK, BECAUSE A HUGE PART OF THE STORY LINE IS THAT GATSVY HAD HUGE PARTYS, BUT NOT ONLY THAT THE CLOTHES WERE EQUALLY AS IMPORTANT SO I FLEW ALL OVER THE COUNTRY SELECTING SUITS AND GOWNS FROM LA TO NYC. WHILE PLANNING THIS WORKSHOP I KEPT ADDING NEW ELEMENTS AND MY STAFF WAS GETTING MADDER AND MADDER WITH EVERY ONE I CAME UP WITH HAHA. LIKE SAYING “OK GUYS SO IM ALSO GOING TO BUILD A 12 FOOT TALL MOON…. OH AND THEN I WANT TO BUILD ANOTHER 12 FOOT TALL MOON BUT PAINT A FACE ON IT… OH AND THEN I WANT TO DO A SMALLER MOON FOR JUST THE BRIDE AND GROOM… THEN ONCE WERE DONE WITH THE MOONS I WANT TO BUILD A MASSIVELY HUGE WALL AND IT HAS TO BE COVERED IN MOLDING.” THEY BASICALLY WANTED TO KILL ME. BUT IT ALWAYS WORKS OUT TO BE INSANE. WHEN I WAS DOING TO “DANCING” SEGMENT I BLARED “A LITTLE PARTY NEVER KILLED NOBODY” FROM THE GREAT GATSBY SOUNDTRACK THEN WALKED OVER TO THE HAIR AND MAKEUP ARTIST MEKA AND SAID “I LITERALLY HAVE CHILLS RIGHT NOW” IT WAS SO SURREAL, I FELT LIKE I WAS BACK IN THE 1920S AND AT ONE OF JAY GATSBYS PARTIES. WHEN PEOPLE ASK ME “WHY DO YOU GO SO FAR OUT ON THESE WORKSHOPS” ITS A SIMPLE ANSWER THEY GET BACK, I WANT THE ATTENDEES TO PHOTOGRAPH SOMETHING THAT GIVES THEM CHILLS, THAT MAKES THEM FEEL LIKE THEY ARE IN A DIFFERENT WORLD OR TIME.
