SO those of you who know me, Halloween is my favorite holiday and my imagination runs amuk! I usually start thinking about my big Halloween Party early in October and start decorating mid October. This year I added to my collection of homemade and bought scary items with floating candles made from paper towel rolls, decorated my studio like a gypsy caravan, and the photo studio looked like a living room in a scary house. I also put up the floating severed heads (made from styrofoam wig holders) from last year and skeleton mobiles and cool lights. As soon as the boxes of Halloween decor came down from the attic, I started having fun posing my three 5 foot skeletons, taking photos and posting them. The party was a success and 48 guests danced and visited until the wee hours.
After photographing everyone in my portrait studio, I went to the outside painting studio, sat myself down and read fortunes for an hour. I had bought fortune telling cards and read the book on the meanings of each symbol and placement so I could read the fortunes. The guests chose the cards and put them face down in the positions and it was amazing how accurate and telling the cards turned up. It was fun plus I got to sit for a bit and visit with my guests individually.
Here are some of the crazy skeleton poses I did over the weeks.
