I just got confirmation that the Matt Huntley from "Scream at the Beach" will be doing the makeup for the models before the shoot. So does anyone have any good costumes that we can use to accompany an awesome makeup job. Or any ideas on what the models should bring?
LukeOlsen PRO 10 years ago
That's cool. Will the environments be roughly the same as last year?
perfect room [deleted] 10 years ago
Strong, important woman stuff? I'm just throwing that out there. I think it would be really easy to make this turn into a "woman as a victim" and I think it would be more fun to illstrate the "strong woman" thing. You know....Irony? Anyone's thoughts?
metakephoto PRO 10 years ago
@PhotoInference: i'm assuming they have alot of the same staged ares as last year, but i'm sure it's layed out completely differnt with some fun new areas...but who knows..i'm excited to see.

@ballyhoo photography: irony works for me...also there's a carnival going on outside the mall, but i'm not sure how receptive they would be to us being there..

There's 5 main haunts this year:

The Awakening (an old mansion)
Zombie Apocalypse
The Mine
Dark Carnival
Lost Temple

Have a wonderful time everyone, I can't wait to see the goods you all produce. Shane you'll be going since I won't be able to make it.
LukeOlsen PRO 10 years ago
@metakephoto: Should we ask each model what haunt(s) they would like to model in (first response getting first choice and so on)? That way they could cobble something together and bring it. I can imagine some haunts could use the same costume; e.g. The Awakening and Zombie Apocalypse could use some old Victorian looking get-up, the Mine and Lost Temple could be something out of some long lost civilization, etc... Of course scary clown costumes would be cool for the Dark Carnival.

Turns out I can't make it (another unfortunate Strobist meet-up missed due to work.)

Have fun!

Same here, work is really getting annoying because I can't get time off >:(
nikonpdx 10 years ago
I'm not going to make it either, looks like another slot on the waitlist moves up. Hopefully the next shoot.
pdxblazer503 10 years ago
Thank you Coupowner ! Cool, my turn LOL !
Aaron Audio 10 years ago
Just to reiterate. Qozmiq aka Q-niverse will be joining me.

I've been really sick this week, and I need to rest, so unfortunately, I'll have to miss the zombie bash.
Rosborough Photography 10 years ago
Tom and I must have gotten the same thing! I've been really sick the last couple days and was holding out to see if it would break by tomorrow. I'm feeling better but will likely have no energy for tomorrow.

Yet another missed event :(
pdxblazer503 10 years ago
Jeff, has the info been sent out? I did not get email yet, thanks
metakephoto PRO Posted 10 years ago. Edited by metakephoto (admin) 10 years ago
i've been so busy lately, i forgot to mention where to meet at 10am...
so if you get this message, meet us at 10am in the food court area where the carousel is.

also please remember this is a RSVP event....and only people listed will be admitted into the haunted houses.
