Because we are clearly crazy.... not really, it's mostly a matter of scheduling. In an effort to get everything lined up for our next batch of SP4 greatness, we first did a double header shoot with our new friends Caitlyn and Lena, then a solo shoot with Christina, then a group shoot with all three of those ladies, plus Melanie from just a few weeks ago! It was a really fun series of shoots, no doubt about that.
First up we had our friend Caitlyn join us from her life on the road. Caitlyn is a stuntwoman, most recently working for the Marvel Live stunt show as Nebula! She messaged us in the middle of that tour to say she wanted to be on the SP4 team, and she came highly recommended from some of our friends in the stunt and fight world. We are so glad we brought her onto the team, because she's the best! She's so much fun to work with and hang out with and her energy is infectious in the best possible way. It's really wonderful working with such a gifted and experienced physical performer, Caitlyn has an amazing awareness of her body and the space around her and put so much character into her post apocalyptic warrior, Tink. We dearly hope to see her again soon, hopefully our travels will allow us to cross paths.
Next up our new friend, cosplayer extraordinaire, Ms. Lena Volkova, joined us to create her character, Lucy. In another show of brilliance from the SP4 team, Lena made most of her outfit. That kimono top was all hand made by her, just for this shoot. It's amazing! Her character is a fantastic melding of classic and modern, with lots of her personal touches thrown in, just the way we like it. Be sure to follow her on Facebook and Instagram to catch all the amazing projects she's involved in, including the Cosplay Cast, a weekly podcast on the weird and wild world of cosplay. She's got tons of tips and information to share, be sure to give her a follow!
Third shoot for the weekend, Ms. Christina Choi, dc model and artist, joined the team through our casting call and put together a fun and exciting character concept. Mixing and matching some very avante garde images and ideas, we came up with her character, Akiko. A warrior with claws and psionic abilities, her outfit is a little rave, a little comic book, a little S&M... and it works. It's a great look for the SP4 crew and was really fun to shoot with.
We are almost at the end! Just one more solo shoot and possibly 2 more group shoots before Sucker Punched 4 wraps! It's been a great ride, and we are so grateful to all the amazing people who've helped make it happen. Huge thank you to our models, our backers, and our fans.
Stay tuned here to see the wrap up happen!
