I should start calling these ‘Look of the Week’ posts instead of LOTD posts. -.-

It’s gotten crazy busy for me, but in a good way.

Since today is Halloween, I wanted to get this pic posted, even if it’s almost over. 😛

This is a costume I wore for a performance at the Main Event Show Lounge for our Halloween show.

I love Boudoir, but a lot of their items do not ‘dance’ well.

Luckily for me, this one did, because I fell in love with it as soon as I saw it. 😀

Since this was purely a ‘fun’ pic for me, I have edited it in Photoshop.

I’ve added the green sparkles, as well as some of the spooky green highlights.

I am constantly amazed at the flexibility of Photoshop and how much fun I have playing around with different options and features.

I have several programs that will add effects for me in one-click, but I get much more enjoyment from playing around myself and seeing what cool effects I can make.

It’s been a quiet evening here, not one trick-or-treater at all.

I hope you are all enjoying your Halloween.

Me, I’m ready for fall, Thanksgiving, and turkey. 😛

He stepped back to critique his work.

He resisted the urge to dip into his paints yet again. 

The exhibition was in 4 hours and he still had to get ready.

LOTD #126 – Final Shoot

LOTD 126She looked past the photographer, a million thoughts running through her mind.

She was so glad this would be her final shoot.

She needed a vacation.

Her flight to Fiji was booked, and she would be on her way as soon as she was done here.

She couldn’t wait.

Sequence #1 – Ballet

Black SwanThis post ended up being a lot of things all rolled into one.

I’ve been having so much fun taking photos in costumes, and I came across my Black Swan costume from Boudoir.

I love it, but just never got around to using it in a routine.

So I decided to go take some photos in it.

While I was taking photos, I began hunting around in inventory for an old ballet sequence I could use in the photo shoot.

Then I decided I would post the sequence.

But I wanted to do a short little video, so that everyone could see what the sequence looked like.

Hubs and I got to talking and he wanted to upgrade our video editor/recorder.

So while he spent hours finding the program he wanted, I got busy taking photos and getting a quickie little dance put together.

I’ll include the details for the outfit at the bottom of the post.

The sequence was originally set to other music, but I think it turned out pretty well for something I threw together in a couple of hours.

Kisses to my sweet husband, who shot the video and edited it for me. ❤
