Childlike Empress Cosplay Photo Shoot

I have been wanting to do some cosplay photo shoots and this one was at the top of my list. I had the perfect model for the shoot so I just needed to make her gown and head piece. I also had to figure out the back ground.  I looked for weeks for a digital background but alas, couldn't find anything so I resorted to making my own. Here are the final images:


These images were for my own personal fan art and no monies were made from these images. I was considering doing some with the character Bastion and the Empress together. Maybe after I finish up the next 2 shoots, The Secret of the Kells and Labyrinth.

"Bastion, Call... my... name!"

Let me know what you think! Follow my blog to keep up with the latest photo sessions and behind the scenes looks at how I do my craft and create my images.

Family Movie Night

It is the end of the school year and we wanted to give our kids someplace to celebrate this joyous occasion. Plus we wanted them to be able to keep up with their friends through the summer, and meeting the parents and getting to know them was the best way to do that, so family movie night was born.

We had intended to use our projector outside and have everyone lay out on lawn to watch the movie. We were serving, organic, non-gmo popcorn and drinks. Everything was planned. And then we got rained out. There was a chance of rain but it wasn't high enough to make us change the date or move it to indoors. That is until the ominous dark clouds rolled in 15 minutes before people were due to arrive.
The ominous clouds that rolled in at the last minute.
With the help of our kids and a few of their friends that arrived early, we packed everything us and moved into the living room. Fortunately, we got all of the electronics and paper goods inside before it started to down poor.

We went with plan B, piling in the living room. Most of the families just dropped their kids off, which ended up being a good thing as there would have been standing room only. Though, we didn't get to know any of the parents. The kids all had a great time anyway and that's what counts! (I am not posting most of the pictures as there are children in them and I want to maintain their privacy).

Next up, The Never Ending Story photo session AND the Secret of the Kells photo session.

Fairy Angst

I am in the process of finishing up a cosplay photo shoot for The Never Ending Story. In the mean time here is a garden fairy costume I created using scraps of vintage fabrics. Every bit of the costume was handmade and it is fully lined. It will be available in my Etsy shop soon.

Here are the final images from the photo shoot of this fairy costume:
