Excerpt

Gypsy Electra

July 17th, 2017

For the final pose I wanted a look like she was ready to go into battle. The look in her eyes was I'm a warrior that will fight and be strong in taking the evil side down till the end. After playing around with the colors by making it more dramatic... 

Gypsy Electra

July 17th, 2017

I wanted this one to be more of an dramatic pose but with a slight smirk that wasn't real noticeable. I then turned it into black and white which made the photo more dramatic like what was going to happen next? 

Gypsy Electra Persona

July 17th, 2017

This fist pose I did really wasn't an warrior look but I was so excited I kept it anyways. I love the smile on my face and the expression I'm showing that I can't seem to keep inside but then again why should I? I added some green since it wasn't a... 

Gypsy Electra

July 17th, 2017

A full view of my costume for Bowl A Con 2017. I dressed as Electra with a gypsy twist which worked out better then I thought.  

Hachet Girl II

May 2nd, 2017

Before she walked into the con she had to get a selfie with her favorite weapon. 

Hachet Girl II

May 2nd, 2017

Before she walked into the con she had to get a selfie with her favorite weapon. 

My other persona know as Hachet Girl has once again emerged but this time in a modern style along with her weapon of choice. She has had a hard life which has caused her to be harsh but a dear friend for those she lets in. 

Display 2

March 5th, 2017

These two images that I framed show aspects that I 've always been drawn to from when I was a kid till now and probably the rest of my life. Nature is where I get away from the stress and tend to get myself back to feeling complete again, serenity ... 

Display 1

March 5th, 2017

Two of my favorite images I captured and what seemed to be a lot of others that walked by the easel. My favorite question of the evening was you went to Paris? I wish I could have said yes since It's on my bucket list but I had to say it was taken ...

Very proud how showing my work to the public turned out. Didn't get any negative reviews, so many people interested in my photos and couldn't have gone any better!

Ghostly World

December 15th, 2016

What I love about this photo is the look on our faces since it shows how much fun these cons are. I didn't like how the lighting turned out so instead of deleting I did some editing to the photo until I got the eerie look to it and this is how it tu... 

Best Friend 2

October 15th, 2016

At this point my friend didn't realize the photo was about to be taken but I did(he he). I thought to myself might as well take this opportunity to look like I was ready to use my hatchet with her face looking unsure about what was going on. One of... 

Best Friend 1

October 15th, 2016

This is a friend of mine that introduced me into cons back in 2014 which started my continuous journey into this fantasy world. I'm so glad she did because it helps me deal with life stresses in a much better way and found a side of myself that I di... 

Creatures

October 15th, 2016

My favorite thing to do at cons is to take photos with others especially ones in full costumes that just blow me away. I saw these two guys and I was like I've got to get both of them in a picture with me. When I look back at this photo it reminds ... 

Trick or Treat

October 15th, 2016

I don't know how this happened but having my face blurry and not in focus gives the image a creepy vibe. Is that thing doing something to her? Possession? 

Fight

October 15th, 2016

I know the guy that is part of the company which makes horror props, does horror/ sci fi flicks and other things that involve those concepts. I noticed there were a few people walking around with makes on so that gave me an idea to work with. When ... 

Brains

October 15th, 2016

I had to get a second picture with this guy since he was fantastic. This time I wanted him to look like he was going to bite me and this is how it turned out.  

Attack Zombie

October 15th, 2016

I was waiting in line and my sister says to me look behind u! I turn my head and there is this guy dressed full zombie and staying in character the whole time, incredible to see. 

Hachet Girl

October 15th, 2016

Back in April I wanted to create a persona that was a character that would protect people that were dear to her heart, was a fighter, and would always watch out for those that were part of her life past to present. Then on the other hand if u got or...
