Royal Court of Ashes Masquerade Ball
Royal Court of Ashes

Seeking to foster creative inspiration and imagination, the city of Austin is due to host the Royal Court of Ashes Masquerade Ball and art show on October 26th. Featuring a unique fusion of photography and painting, an exotic array of images capture a variety of roles and tantalize audiences, the display promises to be a fascinating excursion.

Originally conceived by Terrell, Linda Hughes of Fuzebox photography, Polly Parsons (daughter of late singer, songwriter Gram Parsons), and the freelance makeup/hair duo of Bobbi Douglas and Kelli Willson –the team has continuously nurtured this project to become an advocate for creative inspiration and imagination.

“He said, I have an idea. And I said, well I have friends,” noted Hughes in describing beginning stages. As the co-founder of Austin Fusion Magazine, she utilized her contacts to form a team that promotes every aspect of the local fashion industry, simultaneously evoking its uniquely collaborative efforts. A talented photographer in her own right, Hughes captured models in distinct poses and facial expressions unique to the character’s mindset, where Terrell then painted each selected frame to hence reveal The Royal Court of Ashes.
