Smoke Dress

One of the other set of images I wanted to work on was applying a smoke dress to someone and Nicole was kind enough to pose for the before shot. 

I started by cleaning up the initial image, boosting the hair and make a selection of Nicole from the background.  I cloned out the underwear so that it was the some skin colour and tone as the rest of her so it wouldn't be an issue later.  I then used 3 different type of smoke images with warping and scaling to provide the dress. Blending and adjusting opacity to get the final effect before doing some selective dodging and burning.
