Paracosm World (Austin, TX Editorial Photography)

Last Thursday, we launched our Summer issue of Velvet Dust! Our theme was Paracosm-  "a detailed imaginary world created inside one's mind. This fantasy world may involve humans, animals, and things that exist in reality; or it may also contain entities that are entirely imaginary, alien, and otherwordly." Thus, we created our own little world. Three mysterious oracles in their vibrant habitat, a beautiful dancer surrounded by her animal friends in their colorful forest home and a beautiful sea siren in a cold and icy land. I'll definitely be posting more from each world but until then enjoy the official Velvet Dust editorial The Seekers.
