It helped that Makida (model) was such good sport, having Zubby (hair) tug at her hair as he magically transitioned one hairstyle to another. Funke (make up) dabbed, brushed, wiped then dabbed again at the speed of lightning with flawless precision. Manuella (nail technician) seemed glued to Makida’s hands and feet only detaching when she was in front of Kelechi’s camera. Khadija’s (assistant stylist for the day) quick thinking saved the Gothic look as the stencil that had been carefully prepared days before ripped. She immediately hand painted the ‘must have’ tattoo to complete the look. Ify (assistant stylist) was a treasure trove as she had incredibly pulled vast amounts of accessories and props from Ituen’s impossibly long ‘shopping list’ for the shoot. Newton and David’s generous donation of the adorable bridal bouquet was coveted by all. The last shot of the day with Ituen Basi and team was aptly and promptly christened ‘the melting pot of creativity’.
