I have to preface this post with the fact that we are VERY DIY. Tiny Bangs is a family team, but we're also just a trio of weird art kids. We get our hands dirty in every aspect of the company. For our most recent shoot, we decided to revisit one of our most favorite backdrops: a nostalgic bedroom. It quickly snowballed and suddenly, we were moving everything out of my own room and painting.
"You can't get paint on our clothes if you aren't WEARING ANY, mom!"
The first step was picking out paint. We ultimately agreed on a lurid yellow color. It physically made me cringe when I picked up the paint sample and let me tell you: that's a home-run in our books. Thankfully, both the kids are huge fans of painting bedrooms and Anni immediately stripped down and informed me of her absolutely genius hack: "You can't get paint on your clothes if you aren't wearing any!". After painting, we started pulling EVERY relevant poster, stuffed animal, and decoration from around the house and amassed a pile of epic porportions! Just a few hours later and we had the tweenage room of our dreams.
Our friend Nas Nixx (@nasnixx) came to shoot the girls modeling the new handmade/vintage collection in this room and Roger Lopez (@rogerdidit) helped the kids execute their makeup to perfection. Their hair color was done by me a few days prior using Manic Panic products. I hope you enjoy this photo set! You can join us later this month at the Daydream Party at Laser Kitten on Melrose to experience our new bedroom installation IRL. Just check the events section of our site for the full details.
