Last week I had a photoshoot I’ve been longing to do for a long time. Like I told you in my last post, I used to be an active roleplayer, mostly engaging in Vampire: the Masquerade. This shoot was based on my very first character, a vampire named Miss Marie.
Miss Marie is part of the Toreador clan, the clan of the artists and club owners. She herself is an art restorer, working mostly with French and Italian rennaissance art. With her red hair and green eyes she easily turns the head of everyone she passes by. Not that she cares that much. Miss Marie is probably the most antisocial Toreador there is, and also highly cynical and bitter. The reason for that is simple: she does not have a reflection. Can you imagine that? Being a part of the most beautiful clan and not being able to look at yourself in the mirror because there won’t be anything there. She thinks the world has played her a very cruel joke and is therefor intent on treating it the same way. But even so, she’s very seductive when the mood hits her, which only proves her place within the clan.
A little background story, and here’s the first proper picture of her 🙂 Photo & edit by Katie Sandström, the corset is made by Viola Lahger.
Yesterday was photoshoot day, and boy, was it fun! Studio shoot with a new photographer who is incredibly talented and easy to work with. This particular shoot was even more fun for me to do because it has a proper story behind it and a specific persona that I could act out. I don’t always get that chance, even though I try to create a character for all the shoots I do. This one I have a certain relationship with and I’ve been longing to act it out in front of the camera for years.
In case you didn’t know, I was a pretty active roleplayer a couple of years ago. Mostly I played Vampire: the Masquerade and I grew very fond of all my characters. So when I now got the chance to really act them out in a photoshoot, naturally I jumped right on it. Yesterday we shot the first character I ever created, who’s also closest to my heart. I won’t tell you her entire story now though, you’re going to have to wait for the finished pictures for that 😉
But all in all, we had tons of fun and I’m looking forward to more shoots – RPG based as well as other ones 🙂
