Shell, moss and pistachio shells: 17 outfits from a Brazilian artist, made from natural materials (18 photos)
Brazilian artist Melissa Meyer creates intricate costumes and accessories from natural materials. Crystals, shells, moss, various fruits and seeds, and even pistachio shells are used.
The artist is inspired by myths and legends of different nations. Of course, these elaborate costumes are more intended for dramatic artistic performance. However, the presented outfits are quite mobile, although some of them are very heavy.
The outfit is made from dry fruits of the amber tree.
