Kristin Costa “Monstrous” Fall/Winter 2011

NYC may be a big place, but it’s pretty weird how small the sub-cultures are.  I photographed the Kristin Costa show at INC Lounge this week, because my friend was modeling.  I recognized several of the other models from Steampunk conventions/events.  Shien Lee from Dances of Vice was also modeling and she perhaps best embodies the under-underground fashion in New York.  It’s a devilish care-not attitude that gives a big fat middle finger to the Anthropologies/Abercrombie crowd and embraces a mix of risque fashion from the the victorian era, anime, 1920’s and more.  I’m just happy to have a chance to photograph it in the making.
