Death, Nudity, and the Fuzz!
So our photo shoot on Sunday was so much fun, I can't wait to see the pics. Stephanie, the photographer, brought us out into the woods where someone had dumped an old rusted dryer. Sounds weird i know, but I'm telling you, it's going to be soooooo cool in photos! Kita really comes alive in front of the camera.
So as we're moving out of the woods to change location, Kita jumps about a mile & lets out this little shout. looking down there is *skip this part all you queasy stomach people* a gutted deer, blech. Looking a little further & there are 2 more, holy crap! So then we head out to a paved area in front of some cool train tracks, and yuck, there's one more- and this one smelled BAD! yuck, yuck, yuck!
Then, as we're setting up for our next shot, here comes a large, half naked, old guy with a four foot wooden stake, sharpened to a point, mind you, walking down the path from the woods &, naturally he feels compelled to speak to us. Since I'm the makeup artist, & her makeup is done, I am the one available for conversation. Lord help me. O.k. little tip to any guys out there- I don't care how secure a women is, if you are half naked and carrying a sharpened stake, I don't care how nice a guy you are , YOU ARE GOING TO SCARE THE CRAP OUT OF ANY WOMEN IN A 10 MILE RADIUS, SO PUT THE DAMN STAKE DOWN! I had my phone in my hand already dialed to 911. I figured if he rushed me I could at least hit send before he got to me. I kept sidling away, like a damn crab. Finally he got tired of us avoiding him & took off. Whew.
So next, I had to run back to the car to grab my metallic lipstick & the funky lashes (see previous Post) for the next look for my contest submission. While I was gone the gals moved onto the tracks to snap a few, well apparently someone saw this from the roadway (a little way off over head) and called the cops, cause as I'm applying lashes- here comes a cop cruiser! Great, we're figuring we're ousted & the sun's going down, my contest submission has to be in by midnight that night, so no chance of a new location, crap! anyway Stephanie gets right up & goes over to him, tells him what we're doing, I just keep applying, since my glue's drying, he was cool ( and cute!) & tells us we're all good. I feel a little better too, since if weird naked, stake dude comes back, the cop can deal with him.
So that was the complete random weirdness for our shoot, thank goodness they're not all like this!
Also a big thanks to Stephanie for editing a couple photos quick that night for my contest, she rocks, cause I know we were all tired!
