“The circus arrives without warning. No announcements precede it. It is simply there, when yesterday it was not.”
Keymoon Photography and I spent a fun day shooting on a carousel in Jamestown ,NC. I had borrowed this little guy from a friend specifically to shoot with. My friend ended up giving him to me as a gift 🙂 I named my little man Sander Cohen. I may be too obsessed with Bioshock haha.
“We lead strange lives, chasing our dreams around from place to place.”
The building behind me,Jamestown Friends Meeting House, is 190 years old and filled with history. It was used by the Quakers of this area at various points in time as a church and a school. The old cemetery lies behind it…many of the graves stones broken…
“I prefer to remain unenlightened, to better appreciate the dark.”
This costume is made using a longer Peplum top as a dress and then layering 3 petticoats under it. I attached another petticoat at the back to make it fuller and to tie in the red from the mini top hat. I added gloves,thigh highs,a necklace and used black eyeliner to make myself into a mannequin as well.
“This is not magic. This is the way the world is, only very few people take the time to stop and note it.”
