About this Costume
- Personal Thoughts:
- Where to start on this costume!! We decided to do this one primarily because people kept commenting on how my fiance looked like Lestat from Interview With The Vampire. When we stumbled upon some lovely wench dresses we started getting a plan in the works for a photoshoot.
Our roommate Sean was Louis, our friend Kim's daughter Emily did Claudia, and Seans girlfriend Brittany and our roommate Christy did the two wenches.
For my dress, I basically found this green dress at a thrift store and took the arms off and deepened the neck. I added black lace around the neck and arms, sewed on a locket and we'd found the choker necklace at the Dollar Store during Halloween. I also wore a wig for this one because I was having MAJOR hat hair around shooting time.
For the shoot itself, we borrowed a room in the basement of the morgue in my hometown (the building is partially abandoned) and were able to borrow a coffin for some shots. Everyone pooled in resources for the props, lighting and set dressing. This was the best shoot we've done coordination-wise so far. It was sooooo much fun!!
