Who’s afraid of the Big Bad Wolf?

 I modeled my Halloween Costume for Matt Masters.

You can see more of his work at: http://mastersphotography.tumblr.com/

Recently I was discussing with a friend whether or not you lose the magic by finding out how something is done.

He enjoys the mystery of only seeing the final product but I have always loved seeing the process that goes into making something.

(I blame Mr. Rogers for showing me how crayons were made.)

So I am showing you start to finish what goes into making this photograph. Matt Masters took the  finished photographs you’ll see here. I did the costume, hair, makeup, and editing.

Melissa Snyder and Mitch Bunting were there to help too!

I made a version of “Red” from “Once Upon a Time”.

Here are the sample images I worked from:

Snow White and Red, Once Upon a Time

So. I went to Goodwill and found a tablecloth/sheet? for $3. Cause fabric is expensive and I’m a balla on a budget.

One fold and seam created the portion for the ribbon to cinch the hood.

To the left you will find Aidan's lizard that had mysteriously had it's leg ripped off and was next in line to get sewed up.

Next I folded the fabric lengthwise and cut a curve to form the oversized hood.

Fed the ribbon through with a folded paper clip and Hood was done!

NEXT

My hair was the wrong length and color (and way too many silvers anyway) so I dyed it, added some extensions, and curled it.

So this is where the makeup tutorial would go… if YOUTUBE would finish uploading the terribly unflattering and sailor cuss worthy video I made.

Anyway, Here’s a picture of what I used for the Photoshoot makeup.

Here's the Vest. I ran a quick and dirty seam in the back to cinch it a bit for a better fit.
