When I was brainstorming inspiration board ideas for Halloween, I kept thinking of Pierrot and Harlequin, and was inspired to created something from that. Pierrot’s costume was the main inspiration here. His ruffled collar and cuffs inspired a dramatic ruffled wedding gown. The black-and-white palette made me think of whimsical chalkboard typography and calligraphy, but I also added some pale pink for a little romance. Pierrot’s pom poms made me think of this dark chocolate truffle-studded wedding cake, and his painted face translates to real life in the form of black wing-tip liquid eyeliner.
So what do you think? Could you pull inspiration from such an unexpected source?
