Carmine Warren of ShootTheLook.com recently discovered Worbla and has created some fantastic pieces with it. We had the chance to reach out to Carmine and ask about his work, and he shared his thoughts on Worbla and the process that went behind creating some of his iconic looks with us!
Carmine Warren is a creative Photographer located in Orlando Florida and focuses on blending textures, color and custom designs to create Fashion Art. Blending different genres, styles and unique concepts allows Carmine to create one of a kind looks with a Fashion Flair.
This year Carmine was determined to take his unique photography and designs to a new level and he needed something different. A product that was easy to use and capable of making changes in the middle of a shoot. Searching for a product that is both easy to use and that can be incorporated into his designs proved challenging.
One night Carmine was introduced to Worbla, his excitement went through the roof. This product seemed easy to use, capable of things never seen before and you can get started quickly! The Dark Series was born, with a passion for Worbla and several full sheets purchased from CosplaySupplies.com and watching a few videos on Worbla.com, inspiration was endless.
Carmine Warren is excited to announce Worbla as his official thermoplastic. With so many to choose from, Worbla meets the demands of his designs and the ability to hold its shape when fitting a model with a piece.
“This piece incorporates Worbla into the Headpiece, The Horns and Base is made of Worbla. By using Worbla, this allowed me to go bigger and still be cautious of the weight of the headpiece.”
Dark Inspired Medusa
“This piece incorporates Worbla into the Headpiece, The Horns and Base is made of Worbla. By using Worbla, this allowed me to go bigger and build a frame for this headpiece and support to stay on the head. I couldn’t have made this without Worbla.”
Medusa Version 2
“In this version the headpiece is made of Worbla, the neckpiece and body piece is all Worbla. I wanted to create a more dominant version of this look and used pieces from other designs to blend and make a second version of this.”
Medusa Version 3
“The 3rd version of this image is without the headpiece and it takes on a very elegant formal look. This is what amazes me with Worbla, you can mix the looks for endless possibilities. With the versatility Worbla has provided. My Dark Series has exploded. If you are not using Worbla in your designs, start today. If you are a photographer that wants to be different, get Worbla!”
“This piece incorporates Worbla into the Headpiece, The Horns and Base is made of Worbla. By using Worbla, this allowed me to go bigger and still be cautious of the weight of the headpiece. This look was inspired by the Dark Wedding look and I wanted to changes the colors up and show designers and photographers. Once you understand Worbla and how to make a base. The ideas are endless!”
“This look pushed me into a new direction. I needed to mix it up some. After I shot my first version, It was just another headpiece. It needed more and below you will see 2 versions.
Version 1- A headpiece made of Worbla
Version 2- Headpiece was made with Worbla. Then I created a chest piece and then tried something new. I created molds of designs and rolled up Worbla and pushed it into the mold. Once it hardened I heated it slightly and began connecting pieces and shaping them to the Model.”
“This incorporates Worbla into the headpiece. I also attached Worbla the ends of the black and silver braided Fabric and molded then into the design. These braided pieces stay in place with the help of Velcro. Worbla helped make these braids stay on and come off very easily.”
“The helmet was my first Worbla design and I have a special fondness of it. I really didn’t have an idea of where it would go. I just started making some pieces and started sticking them together. The came the Body Armor next. This was a fun today and I had an idea of what I wanted to do and it all changed. Once you get the hang of Worbla, you experiment. That’s what I did with this piece and loved the outcome. The bracelets and neck piece are also made of Worbla.”
