Pert Plus: “Don’t Be An Animal”
This summer, PERT PLUS has sponsored a unique digital spot featuring Playboy models painted like animals. This dovetails with their â€œDonâ€™t be an Animalâ€ advertising campaign that launches in July.
Donna Hofstee, Nelly Recchia and Lisa Berczel spent nearly six hours turning the models into their inner animal with the help of their assistants. The transformation consisted of skilled airbrushing and detailed hand painting using Cosmetic Airbrush Paint by European Body Art, Grex Airbrush tools and WolfeFX face paint. The shoot was produced by Tim Gibbs and photographed by Jared Ryder, both members of Playboy Plus staff. Gibbs and Ryder conceptualized the stylistic direction of the shoot along with the artists to create this awe-inspiring campaign. The team was also joined by Joanna Joy Gershenson, who did the hair and makeup for the models, and Raul Hernandez who shot the behind the scenes footage and time lapse video.
Pert Plus has made each image available to download as a desktop background, just click on the image and you’ll be taken to the official page.
The models featured are Leanna Decker (Leopard), Christina Renee (Tiger) and Sascha Aleksander (Zebra). All of the women have posed for Playboyâ€™s online Cyber Club as a Cyber Girl of the Week.
