The Godiva Collection by RockStar Wigs featuring Alt. Models Fate and Alexa Poletti
Hey guys! I had the pleasure of shooting RockStar Wigs‘ launch of their newest collection, the Godiva Collection. This collection is based off of the legendary Lady Godiva who rode through town naked on horseback in protest of taxation. The designer of RockStar Wigs wanted the photos to reflect the inspiration of the collection as much as possible by shooting all of the launch photos in the nude.
I teamed up with alternative model Fate and Sweet Trade Photography for a marathon shoot day in Clarksburg, Maryland. My plans for the day included shooting the Godiva in black plum, dark brown, and milk tea on Fate. So we headed out to our location. Oh my gosh. How was this the hottest day ever? Not only was the temperature about five million degrees, we had a heavy rain the night before. Cue humidity. And mud. Lots of mud.
Location scouting in pink shoes. Mistake.
Shortly after sinking ankle-deep in the mud, we found a great location to shoot the lovely Fate as Lady G. After hauling all of our gear and wardrobe (for other shoots we had planned), it was time to get ready to shoot these bad boys!
While Fate was shaving her legs (hahaha- way to be prepared!), Sarah from Sweet Trade Photography and I were being a bunch of weirdo goofballs and swinging the Godiva hair all around and making funny faces at each other. It was sooo hot out. That’s pretty much all I can remember about this shoot.
Next step: Getting Fate in her very complicated wardrobe. Check!
Long, long, long, amazing wigs! Here is Fate in our classy dressing room, getting ready to shoot!
Okay… looks like we are finally ready to get the ball rolling…
Quick lighting test…
Bingo! Let’s do this!

Mission complete! Fate killed it as Lady Godiva!
While I was shooting this collection, I grabbed a few quick headshots of Fate in her new Dolluxe lashes. Dolluxe is the new AMAZING cosmetics line from the creator of Gothic Lolita Wigs and RockStar Wigs.
She is so incredibly stunning.
Anyway, back to Godiva. For some variety in the photos for the collection, I decided to shoot the other two colors, black and burgundy, on myself, in my home studio.
I often hear of photographers complaining because they don’t have a studio. Well ya know what? I don’t either. And I don’t have a spare room to make a studio in my apartment either. So I rearrange my living room and move my couches to different areas every time I need to make a studio setup. I hate when people make the excuse of not having enough space. I live in a tiny apartment in the city. There is always a way. /end rant
