With a project this big, we don't get much time away from it! Two more Sucker Punched solo shoots are in the can!
First up was our new friend, model and artist, Cheska J! We met Cheska through our amazing friend Lexi (who you might remember from her character, Zahra, and her Wonder Women shoot with us) and we're so glad we did! Cheska has an amazing presence and she's immensely fun to work with. She's also set a new record for the Sucker Punched series, at 4'10", she is officially our shortest SP model.
Cheska came to us with a few ideas, and we worked with her to figure out a great wasteland warrior look, something straight out of Mad Max, or the Fallout video game series. She made herself an amazing top, based on some ideas we spotted around the web, but could not in any way afford. (How ironic is it that wasteland fashion is so incredibly expensive?). Her character, Jaz, is a brilliant combination of our ideas, and really shines in this photo series.
We're looking forward to more shoots with Cheska, in the meantime, follow her on Instagram @hicheska
Our next shoot, the very same day, was with Evelyn of Mays Create Cosplay. Her concept was heavy on the punk rock, lots of leather, with some thigh high boots. We loved it. She also wanted to work her background in chemistry into the mix, which we were all too happy to figure out. We put together this sniper/chemical weapons/explosive expert outfit that is really awesome. Not going to lie, making that C4 explosive prop was one of the more uncomfortable prop making experiences I've had. Prop guns are one thing, a prop bomb is something else.
Huge thanks to Evelyn for having so much fun with her character concept and bringing her A game to the studio. For more from the Mays Create team, check them out on Facebook.
Shout out to the team at Preferred Arms Theatrical Weapon Rentals, for providing us with both long guns for these shoots, the historical machine gun for Jaz, and the sniper rifle for Honey. If you're in need of prop weapons, they are the place to go!
