Outfit: Let Me In


The "read more" is definitely handy here since our Michael Myers photoshoot last year surprised (frightened?) a few people--so head's up for a vampire themed shoot after the jump. I'm not exactly ripping open people's throats, but we took some pretty creepy pictures in an old abandoned house that really captured the mood we wanted.

The flapper photoshoot I shared on Monday is actually what got me so excited to go out and take these photographs. I don't usually try to act or play a character in my photographs, so when a shoot calls for a different sort of look and pose it's really fun. I piled on all of the eyeshadow I could find and dug out my darkest lipstick and chose a new dress that looked sort of Gothic (I actually really like this dress and want to wear it in more "normal" conditions soon). We had some fake teeth but they looked quite awful so we quickly abandoned them and focused more on creepy shots and shadows. If the house wasn't scary enough I nearly fell backwards down the stairs when a cat came streaking out of one of the bedrooms and straight for me. Thankfully that was the only living occupant of the house we encountered during our brief visit...

This shoot is wonderful! The shadow in that second to last picture is so captivating. This will definitely be a post I come back to over and over.

I have to say the photo of you with that smile sitting on a chair in the corner is quite creepy! Disturbingly creepy. It's like you're cooking up some evil plot in your head. Excellent job with the Halloween theme here!

Dude, it totally looks like you have horns in the first one. This is such a great shoot!

Victoria said...

I absolutely love your Halloween-themed photoshoots! I love the one from last year and this one as well! The perfect amount of creepiness. Your settings, poses, and outfits always capture the mood so well!

This is the perfect amount of sexy and creepy. The shadow work looks like you're being followed by an evil spirit. Just amazing.

Bravo Rebecca! You nailed it.

Brilliant! I love that make-up look on you. (I don't know what it looks like in daylight but maybe a tutorial?) I actually think the close up of you lying on the rust bed could be right out of a Vogue shoot! You and Thomas work really well together.

Jeez, Rebecca, I cannot get enough of this shoot!!! I'm quite vampire craze, and used to dress very gothic-y dramatic and vampiresque, when I was younger, and this sooooo reminds me of my style in my mid twenties, the piles of eyeshadow and the palest skin, the darkest of lipsticks and always a sense of mischief in me. Also, it reminds me - because of the title - of one of my favourite vampire movies ever...

Back in the day when I was an aspiring singer I did a shoot like this in a derelict burnt out house. Such fun playing dress-ups!

Lauren Lalicon said...

Whoa, you really commit to your photoshoots! I would be too scared to lie down on the bed frame haha. I'm excited to see how you style the dress in a "normal" setting. I don't know if I'd be able to shake off the creepy feeling haha.

Mariela Pena said...

I can't believe I missed these! You look great as always. The lighting in these photos are amazing!!!

These are gorgeous! I love how dark they all are and how it offsets with your pale skin. Lovely!

Wow these images are insanely good Rebecca and I've never seen anything quite like this on the blog! You've definitely succeeded in capturing a dark, creepy mood and you really took on a different persona! The fashion is also beautiful. A very inspiring set of images which I know I'll revisit.
