Vampires In Richmond

I drove up to Richmond recently to see a friend and we decided to wander around the Hollywood Cemetery since the weather was so pleasant and I've been wanting to visit it for awhile. A couple of US presidents are buried here along with other notable figures, but I was most intrigued by the story of "the Richmond vampire." Which is an urban legend born from the collapse of a tunnel in 1925 and partially takes place in this cemetery. Urban legends are so entertaining...

  4. Wow, that's awesome! I know it sounds morbid, but I kind of like cemeteries. Some of them are so pretty! There's a really great one near where I live that has a lot of old mausoleums, and it's really interesting to wander through! Also, wonderful outfit! The boots are great!

  5. I love urban legends like that too! When I was younger, my friend and I would ride our bikes over to the cemetery in our neighborhood. We would explore the old tombstones and make up scary ghost stories. There were even a few above ground tombs that really freaked us out! All that being said...you look lovely. :)

  16. I love urban legends. This is probably a strange thing to add, but I've always wanted to visit a cemetery at night. I've gone in evenings with friends before, but never at night. It's not that I'm all very superstitious, but...

  18. Your outfit is so wonderful yet simple! <3 There is a place in Christchurch called Richmond, so in my half-asleep state, I completely thought you were in NZ!

  19. @Mallory, if the adult sizes fit you then you're set! I only resorted to crew cuts b/c I was tired of having my sweaters go all the way down to my hips! I like a sweater that ends at my waist.

  22. If you ever go back up to Richmond (you totally should/you're always welcome over for tea/coffee/whatever), you should take the Richmond ghost tour downtown. Ben and I randomly decided to take it one bored night and it was awesome! It includes the site of the tunnel collapse/etc. Really fun and awesomely spooky.

  24. i love that you did a shoot in Hollywood Cemetary. I live in Richmond and love to bring people here when they visit. Next time, take a walking ghost tour in Church Hill and they will tell you the full story on the vampire. I'm definitely going to have to do a shoot here when it gets warmer.
