Alt. Model Fate for Rockstar Wigs

After a over a year of searching for a muse in DC, I think I’ve finally found her. Alt. model Fate inspires me with every photo and has a look that I never get sick of. That’s why when I received the Dynamite Collection from Rockstar Wigs, I knew Fate was the one who could pull this eccentric collection off. They are an incredibly poofy and fabulous set of wigs that photograph amazingly. Here is a quick shot of me wearing most of this collection from Rockstar Wigs:

So after I had modeled the wigs in an avant garde style for Rockstar Wigs’ site photos, I wanted to explore by taking the wigs in an edgier, sexier direction. I decided to use three of the wigs with Fate: red, teal, and platinum blonde.

For the red wig, I pictured an alt. circus with Fate as the ringleader who kicks some serious lion ass. Look look look!

The red version of the Dynamite Collection wig is called Cherry Bomb (Get it here: Cherry Bomb). I’ve had these bomb pasties (handcrafted by Jamie Poletti) laying around and I thought they were PERFECT! They match the theme AND it’s a total play on the name of the wig. Love it!

Next up, we decided to go with a rockstar theme for the platinum blonde Dynamite wig, the Platinum Blonde Blast (Get it here: Platinum Blonde Blast).

If you are wondering about these hot pink guitar-shaped pasties, these are another handcrafted creation from the fingertips of Jamie Poletti. Could they be any more perfect for a rockstar theme?

Check out this Behind the Scenes time lapse video of shooting this set “Name in Lights” with Fate.

I love time lapses! I am hoping to do more of these videos of the “behind the scenes” process, clips of the models, etc. What would you like to see in the videos?

After a pizza break, we got to the last set. Teal. We wanted to go a slightly different direction with this one. Less sexy. I had envisioned a creepy-cute, punked out, goth girl decked out in head-to-toe back and teal. And with our powers combined, we made that happen.

And what is a wig shoot without a really whacky behind-the-scenes photo?

Wig caps and bangs are not compatible. Or are very compatible, depending on how you look at it. Hehehe. ❤

Thanks for a great day, Fate!

Frances + Joey’s Engagement

Meet Frances and Joey. They are a seriously awesome couple with a lot of really great and fun ideas. Frances’ sister, Francheska, has been a great friend of mine for many years so it was really cool to finally be able to spend some time with Frances as well. Her fiance, Joey, is hysterical. I had a great time kicking it with these two a few weeks ago.

Their first idea was to do a boxing scene. Joey is a big fan of boxing… here is how it played out.

The face-off!

Champion!

But he is a great sport 🙂

So off to the park for a picnic! Unfortunately, we got caught in a rainstorm so we took shelter in this covered area, which actually turned out to be really cool. The air was extremely muggy and foggy  so while we were waiting for the storm to stop, we snapped off a few other pics that turned out to be some of my favorites from the day. I love the hazy effect at the top of the screen from the weather on my lens.

Teeny and Itsy. Hehe!

Finally! The storm stopped!

Picnic time!!
The number 1 image of the day… drum roll please!

Haaaahaha Teeny and Itsy! I love this one!
What a perfectly sweet couple. 🙂

Hey guys! So this post is a little different than my usual style. Some shots from the Lowbrow + Torch Runner show. No shots from the wild aftermath of police chases, searches, tow trucks, shooting suspects, or of Waka Flocka… but you can’t have everything.
