“It was a bright cold day in April, and the clocks were striking thirteen.”
This photoshoot around downtown Winston-Salem,NC with Julie Jackson was so much fun! She is an amazingly beautiful as a person and photographer. Her and her assistant (aka her hubby) are so great to go out and adventure with. She has such a creative eye,knows great spots and is just zero stress. It’s like hanging out with a friend!
“Until they became conscious they will never rebel, and until after they have rebelled they cannot become conscious.”
I was in Greensboro for this shoot and has very little costuming materials around me. We wanted something dystopian…steamy….but I had left my favorite goggles elsewhere. I shopped around,trying to find something really cheap but found no options. I went to Wendy’s for a frosty….and my frosty became my goggles. Paint the lids,sew on some .99 elastic…boom. There is nothing easier.
Super fast,super easy accessories for cheap. I can always find Nerf guns at Goodwill. They range from .50-$8 depending on size. Add some paint and you’re golden. I had one day to do this step so I didn’t get too involved with it…because it had to be dry by the next morning !
Not too shabby for last minute! 🙂
“The past is whatever the records and the memories agree upon.”
The clothing worn in this shoot is all from the thrift store. It consists of a buckled strap tank and two skirts. The ruffled longer skirt I pinned behind the shorter one to give an illusion of a petticoat/bustle. The thigh highs I always purchase at Spirit Halloween after season for cheap. I have an endless supply of striped leg wear 🙂 The necklace is simply a piece of lace tied around my neck.
“Why should be fruit be held inferior to the flower?”
“You believe that reality is something objective, external, existing in its own right. You also believe that the nature of reality is self-evident. When you delude yourself into thinking that you see something, you assume that everyone else sees the same thing as you”
Downtown Winston truly has some amazing spots for a Dystopian feel photoshoot! I think we took advantage of as many as possible that day!
“Every record has been destroyed or falsified, every book rewritten, every picture has been repainted, every statue and street building has been renamed, every date has been altered. And the process is continuing day by day and minute by minute. History has stopped.”
