'The Princess Was Not Amused' editorial for re.flect magazine is inspired by manga comic books. Highly stylized with a strong Asian theme, the photoshoot is in line with Frankundsteff studio's previous work. Granted, this particular editorial is so stylized, that the images look more like drawings than photographs.

Shot by Frank Bayh and Steff Rosenberger-Ochs, 'The Princess Was Not Amused' editorial showcases a range of typical manga costumes. Embellished with big bun pigtails and rosy cheeks, the model could easily be mistaken for a doll, especially with her eyes digitally enlarged. A fun and colorful photoshoot, it takes place on the fantastical grounds of a carnival. Perched on top of neon signs and radical rides, the model could be a character in Frank Miller movie.
