Downton Abbey VS Thunderball

Here are a couple from January, we're on a limited schedule for workshops right now. Two themes that are pretty different, keeps things interesting! The always versatile Sara Streeter in scuba gear (from my basement)for Thunderball, and a very classy Daniella Traub at the manor house. Thank you both!

Murder, Mayhem and Moriarty

We recently went to the darker side with a visit from Mr. Sherlock Holmes himself (well, it was Rick Galiher, who suffered through our lousy air conditioning) and Sara Streeter returning in her finest film noir garb to inspire us. Thank you both!

Warriors

Just a couple to post, Stacy Walker blasts her way through the solar system in a great retro space costume, and Larva takes on anyone who gets in her way with cold steel as Elektra. A lot of folks don't appreciate what hard work it is to model for 3 hours in an art class, often after doing the same thing all day at a different location. Thank you both for the great costumes and poses!
