This upcoming set of pics is all gothic desolation, snow, torment, and leather. "Penance/Purgatory". A big, ol' ray of sunshine if there ever was one (I'm joking).
I want this gallery to be a dark, fetishistic epic. An erotic horror movie. That's what I had in mind before we started this new set.
That being said, the stuff that we've shot so far is really good and I love the way it's turning out. I'm not going to show any more previews until I post everything up here in 2 weeks but here's 2 snaps that I had to share because I think they're pretty great (good job to my special guest photographer, Mr. PET!). One of the concepts for the Winter 2016 Gallery is a sort of BDSM boogeyman and I wanted my mask to be a cross between a medieval dungeon master, pharaoh, and Komodo dragon with spikes, flaps, zippers, etc. I was worried that the mask would turn out lame (because that's an odd mixture of references and how would it all fit together?) but I'm pretty happy with the results (we made the mask ourselves out of bits and pieces; it took about 2 hours to do which isn't too bad). We wanted to make sure that I looked scary for this section of the new set and I think that the photographer hit his mark.
How would you feel if you woke up in the middle of the night and you saw this gentleman at the foot of your bed?
Would you run screaming or would you stick around to see what he had in store for you?
