Watch this video to see the making of "Arachne"
I started this project months in advance of the shoot. I knew creating 200ish skulls would be long and arduous so I allotted myself 6 months from day 1 to the final images. To make the skulls, I simply used a skull cake making mold but baked paper mache instead of cake. I basically had my oven going for 2 months straight, making around 3 skulls per day. I have to give a big thank you to my mom for letting me take her oven hostage and fuming our house with burning paper smell (:
Here are some of the completed skulls. I'm spray painting them cream since some of the skulls caramelized in the ov
Here are the winners who received a signed Babydoll poster from me. I thought the idea might be lame and that my watchers might not want a print so I was relieved that they both seemed excited to get them :glomp:

I want to start making short trailers for my characters similar to the live action Skyrim trailer, or the Mortal Kombat one. My whole life I wanted a video camera that could record in movie quality... and now I finally have it! For every photoshoot from now on I will be doing a trailer, photoshoot video, and a series of pictures like I have done in the past. Here is the Canon 600D!
Although I would love it if you watched the video, it shows no where near as much work as was put into this shoot. Some of this is embarrassing but I love reading about people's mistakes and how they overcame them. So here are mine.
I bought the costume last November, thinking I would be able to shoot the next week, edit easy peasy and be done in a month. Right.
I booked the first model several times over the course of 3 months but she flaked every time. I'm actually quite happy, as Laura turned out to be PERFECT, easy going, and an overall better model. Laura was kind enough to shoot with me twice, as I was hesitant about the poses I picke
