You can vote for me one a day for free. Will you help me by doing that and spreading the word? It’s unlikely I’ll win but I like the idea. Voting starts at 10am PDT today, 9/5/2023 and continues for ten days (first round). If I advance, there will be more (ETA: I made top six in my group of over 100 entrants over several rounds, but did not advance to top five. Thanks to all who supported me!). All you need is a Facebook account; you do NOT need to pay to vote.
The photos ended up being playful and funny, as we very quickly moved away from me playing terrorized victim to the creature himself turning tail and running away. I’m guessing it was my big net and massive Dooneese Maharelle energy that scared him off? The world may never know.
Anyway, a fun way to bridge the gap between hot Summer days by the lagoon and Halloween.
I love the 1992 Dracula adaptation with Winona Ryder and Gary Oldman. While watching the film in a Carson City theater auditorium last year (Fathom Events hosted a set of 30th anniversary showings back in October), I was struck by the idea of doing a pinup shoot featuring the count’s three hot vampire brides. Fast-forward to the end of April, and my dream was not only reality, it’s on the cover of Retro Lovely‘s “Halloween in April” special edition, Volume 1!
My friends Miss Melody Noir and Lena Von Noir kindly agreed to be my sister brides for the shoot, and Marilee Caruso – my favorite photographer! – signed on to do makeup, hair, and (of course) take the pictures.
