“I wrote the story myself. It’s about a girl who lost her reputation and never missed it.”
A few years ago The North Carolina Photography Group hosted a shoot out at Castle McCulloch in Jamestown,NC. The theme for these events is always just OPEN. You can wear whatever you want. Ladies and gentlemen would show up in formal wear which was beautiful in a castle setting. Some wore costumes or street clothes,anything was a GO!
At this time I was still just putting on a costume and coming out for fun. I didn’t know anything about modeling. I just interacted with new people and photographers and tried to learn a thing or two while I was at it 🙂
“I’ll try anything once, twice if I like it, three times to make sure.”
I’m wearing a Lilah from Jonah Hex costume…straight out of the bag. Pretty good quality. I made the top hat myself because I had also worn this to a Mardi Gras event. I paid too much for this costume so I got my use out of it,haha.
“I’m no model lady. A model’s just an imitation of the real thing.”
Currently life has been so busy and I’ve also felt a little hermit like and uninspired. I haven’t planned on any new shoots but I have SO many ideas in my head. As soon as I get out of my funk I know of a few photographers that are going to have to deal with me! Haha! Don’t feel too bad for them,they love me!
I’m also hoping to lead some group shoot outs around the downtown area here. I have some great ideas for themes! I’m really interested in making some new connections and just having fun again. Everything right now is crazy serious. I need a release. So stay tuned!
“Ladies who play with fire must remember that smoke gets in their eyes.”
My favorite part of this costume is the overskirt! It gives me life! I have often thought about remaking this costume with a real corset to make it screen accurate. I will say though,for a packaged costume,this was well made. It’s held up nicely through two events,three photo shoots and one water shoot!
Hope everyone is having a great week! Let’s all spread positive energies and love! It’s needed 🙂
