A 58-Year-Old Lady Creates Magical Costumes That Can Transport You to Another World

Meet Marina Badianova, a 58-year-old from St. Petersburg, Russia, who’s turned her life into a fantasy in the most literal sense. She sews life into numerous characters, both from existing works of fiction and from creations of her own imagination. So if you’re looking for a role model who refuses to let her own senior years be boring, she’s your lady for sure.

It all started back in 2012 when Marina was helping out her daughter with costumes for a photo session, and she really enjoyed the process. But her first themed photoshoot didn’t happen until 2014 (where she was a bog hag, no less!), and photographers immediately fell in love with her artistry.

All of her costumes are meticulously detailed and serve to enhance the character she’s trying to convey. “I like to invent and create the image of the character,” Marina said to Bright Side. “It’s also important to ‘present’ them well on the set, this is probably the most interesting moment. But when you are in the zone, everything magically develops by itself.”
