Jade_Melissa 's Thoughts:

My extremely talented and dear friend Terry is taking a class called The Figure. It’s all figure drawing, but their final is to create an article of clothing made from some sort of unconventional material (Project Runwayesque if you will). He created this skirt and a hat out of over 350 coffee filters which he hand painted with watercolor.

He asked if I would be his model for it… how could I refuse? Cory and I went out for a photo shoot. It was the first time the sun has been out in a LOOOONG while. It was so cold though that I thought my ears and fingers were going to fall off :(

I think it was well worth it though because we got some amazing shots.
