I had a multitude of ideas that I could do, but was limited by the amount of time I had. (Note to self: never leave important things like costumes to the last minute). So, when I was just strolling around for inspiration, I stumbled across a rainbow coloured leopard bikini top I knew instantly that it was a must-have. The bikini top became my inspiration for the rest of my outfit.

During this shoot, it really hit me just how hard self-shooting is. No matter where I put the camera, I couldn't get rid of the white base wall. The lighting was so tough to manipulate and I was constantly interrupted by my family walking up and down the stairs. Also, the stairs made it hard to find a good angle (as well as the fact that I was so exposed). In the end, I decided to film parts of it, and then go frame-by-frame to find a good shot.
I also realised that despite my leopard-y day, I don't own a single piece of clothing that is the actual orangey leopard print. I can be a unique leopard, I guess.
