Female Grim Reaper Illustration For Vogue Portugal

A Re-Imagined Grim Reaper

Vogue Portugal commission Nuno DaCosta for a modern female Grim Reaper for their article entitled 'Death Becomes Us'.

The feature is about cleaning your house as well as your soul - otherwise known as 'Death Cleaning' but with the publication being Vogue, naturally a fashion twist is essential. Nuno explains, " I immediately visualised her wearing something more subversive with a slight S&M vibe to it. Helmut lang by Hood by Air's Shayne Oliver was perfect for her.  I styled the Helmut Lang top and leather Bra bag top with a coat by Vetements which allowed us to play with one of the main characteristics of the Grimm Reaper which is the shrouded silhouette.  She looks haunting but still beautifully so.  It was such a pleasure to draw something that allowed me to think outside the box and do something different.  I loved it."
