When I was a child, my whole family used to gather around the television to watch “The Wizard of Oz”. That was long before DVR’s and VHS tape machines, so everyone watched television programing when the network chose to air it. These days "The Wizard of Oz" still makes for a fun evening with the kids or grandkids, and you can watch whenever you want.

 

My composite image takes a few liberties on the original story, picking up from the time when Dorothy clicks her heels three times. Here, we find Dorothy and Toto looking back on their adventure after returning home to Kansas. A "twista" is still on the horizon, so Dorothy questions how long she's been gone. It all seems to have been a dream, yet Dorothy has proof of her trek. She now sports a witch tattoo on her shoulder-blade and has the ruby slippers that brought her home. The crows have taken flight, so maybe that scarecrow really did work!

 

I wanted to make an image that people could stare at and find new intricacies with each view. I challenged myself to put in as many story related elements as possible without completely choking the scene. I also challenged myself to use at least 10 layers for the composite; I nearly doubled that number with material objects alone, and I more than tripled that when considering adjustment layers and text.

 

All aspects of the landscape, sky and lightning are elements from numerous photos that are mine. The tornado is an original digital painting by me. The witch tattoo is clipart. The model, the dog, the crows, the picnic basket, and the ruby slippers are all Creative Commons works that I have adapted and imported for this composite. The lightning through the clouds is actually 4 different strands of real lightning that I photographed previously; I adjusted their size, location and brightness to depict cloud-to-ground lighting and cloud-to-cloud lighting, both near and far. The girl and dog were imported from a single photo, but the basket, ruby slippers and witch tattoo had to be intricately sized, oriented, and properly layered into the image (i.e. the shoes had to be shown both in front and behind the basket handles) with shadows to provide an element of realism. In the movie, Dorothy was carrying a basket when the twister was headed for the farm, so that's why I added it to this image. It also served the purpose of a platform to show the ruby slippers since the Creative Commons photo that I imported for this image did not include the girl's lower legs or feet. It was difficult to make it seem like the girl from the image that I imported (Dorothy) was carrying a basket that in reality she was not.

My secret - I've always thought the Wicked Witch of the West got a bad rap. I mean, Dorothy killed her sister. I'd be ready to do some damage myself.

Seen on Explore Front Page. Thanks!

Happy Halloween 2011!

so, given my profession, i'm not one to dress up on halloween.

but this year, i made an exception.

 

this is dedicated to my dear flickr friend, Amanda, who is a big fan of the musical, "Wicked".

 

there is NO PHOTOSHOP involved in this photo.

the make-up artist for the national tour did my wig and make-up for me.

 

yes, it's awfully nice to have friends in Wicked places... ;)

 

big, big, BIG thank you to Paul and Christina for making this photo possible.

 

i'll be posting the "making of" shots next.

 

this was, without a doubt, the MOST fun i have yet had doing a SP in this 365 project.

 

have a great one, everybody!!!

Today I went to see Wicked with my mom.

 

I had to get up early to take these pictures in the park. I changed dresses right there in the park because I didn't want to have to move and re-set my camera.

 

Let me tell you about the moment of panic that ensued when I started to think my back muscles had grown too big for the pink dress, and I was half nekkid in Easter Sunday pedestrian traffic.

 

...Luckily it was just the zipper pulling pranks.

 

Large view, please.

I'll get you, my pretty, and your little dog too!

The wicked witch of the east that is.

 

Today I taught my first photography tutorial! YIPPEEEEE!!!!

Despite being nervous as hell, worried that I would waffle on a load of irrelevant shite and wouldn't be able to focus on what I was talking about for long enough to actually make any sense, I actually FUCKING ROCKED IT!!!!!

I have another lesson next week and hopefully more after that!

 

Tis pretty fecking awesome to be able to impart some of the knowledge that I have and get paid for it!

 

I am living the dream baby! ;D

 

Sorry I'm a bit f a crappy contact at the moment I've just got a lot on at the moment. I will try and have a good catch up with you all soon...

 

This picture was inspired by one that I saw somewhere (I think it was a mobile phone picture on fb?) taken by the awesome AquaLibra

  

A very HRABW to you all! :D

Poppies will put them to sleep.

From the ridiculous to the sublime :) Back on a legs theme it would appear...I had actually planned this shoot months ago, yet the way things worked out meant it took a lot longer to just get out and do it.

 

First up, how amazingly incredible are my ruby slippers. I bought them in the January sales purely based on the fact they were really high, red, and glittery. Whether I could walk in them or not was a side issue. I got these leggings recently and then tried in vain to find green socks (mens section of Burtons in the end).

 

The Wizard of Oz is a theme I visited back in February, by comparison this has a lot more iconic imagery. This image is really an homage to my beloved Fiat 500. I got this back in 2011, back when life was different and I only needed a car to drive me from A-B. These days, I need something a lot more practical, so, with sadness I have traded it in, for a Blue Citroen C3 Picasso. Before it goes, I used it as the 'yellow' essence for this self portrait.

 

On a side note, I am really enjoying the darker aspect of my portraits this year :)

Ft. Elphie/Elphaba from "Wicked."

 

Happy Halloween everyone!!! :)

In this take, the witches whose skirts have slits, have them opened up to reveal their boots. They include the Wicked Witch of the West and the two Evanora dolls.

All the dolls are available online and in stores. They are based on characters in the upcoming Disney movie Oz The Great and Powerful, which opens on March 8, 2013 in the USA.

 

Okay, so I'm a little late on the whole Elsa/Elphaba crossover bang with both being performed by Idina Menzel. Well, here we go. Here's Elsaba.

 

This just came to me while running and listening to the Frozen and Wicked soundtracks. I realized I had both the classic Elsa doll and the Wicked Witch doll from Disney's Oz The Great and Powerful, and I decided. . .why not go with it. So this is Disney's Elsa dressed up in the Wicked Witch's black gown, boots, gloves, tights, the whole shebang. And for a little extra detail, I used the box from the LE Sergeant Calhoun doll to give a little feel of the Emerald City of Oz.

what witch is complete without her striped stockings?

Got my three witches from DS this morning. Ahhh!! Two more weeks till Oz! Can't wait.

But girl, where my Theodora Disney Store version at?

 

When you're almost there

And you're almost home

Just open up your eyes and go, go

When you're almost there, almost home

Know you're not alone

You're almost home

Theodora the Wicked Witch of the West appeared in the 2013 Disney fantasy film Oz the Great and Powerful. Theodora is a beautiful, naive witch who is protected by her powerful sister Evanora. Theodora only wants peace to come to the Land of Oz and truly believes that Oscar is the great and powerful wizard they've been waiting for, or so we think...

Not all witches travel light and plain black is so boring. ;-) Used Wandy's tutorial to make a set of spooky luggage. Used Washi (?) tape because finding appropriate fabric is tough!

Southern California's 2009 wildfire season kicked off today with this behemoth in Northern LA County.

 

The Station Fire (August 26 – October 16) burned 251 sq mi (64,983 ha) and destroyed 209 structures, including 89 homes. It started in the Angeles National Forest near the U.S. Forest Service ranger station on the Angeles Crest Highway (California State Highway 2). Two firefighters were killed on August 30 when their truck plunged off a mountain road while they were attempting to escape the fast moving flames.

 

At 160,557 acres, the Station Fire is the largest wildfire in the modern history of Los Angeles County.

I was recently tagged by my long-winded, far-sighted, ultra-marathon-running buddy in Singapore...

Thanks, Thomas! Thomas also just wrote my first (and last) testimonial (to make up for the tagging injustice). He really is one of the nicest guys I have ever had the privilege to meet on Flickr!!

 

So apparently I'm now going to have to sit down and write ten things about my least favorite subject.

This may take a while... I'm going to the beach to cool down.

   

Now she's sold out! Damn I guess I'll be patrolling ebay! And now thinking I should grab a Glam Dorothy too!

 

Can you imagine what Glinda will look like? A pink couture inspired creation!

 

NOT MY PHOTO! GOT IT FROM BFC.

This shoot was inspired by my Madame Alexander Halloween Wicked Witch of the West Doll. From the McDonald's Wizard of Oz toy collection from 2007. She has this lovely green complexion and black hat and dress. I paired her with my miniature pumpkins and shot this scene.

It is what it is. A sailboat reflected in water. That looks like it's melting :)

Thanks so much everyone for your wonderful feedback on "sky dancer".

 

Undressing the Wicked Witch of the West 11.5'' doll by the Disney Store. Her hat and broom have been taken off, and placed off camera. Next her dress, boots and fingerless gloves have been removed. She is lying down, dressed only in her hood and leggings, next to her dress, gloves and boots.

 

The Wicked Witch of the West 11.5'' doll by the Disney Store has been completely deboxed, and is posed standing, supported by a doll stand (not included). She is a movie accurate collectible doll based on a character in the upcoming Disney mixed live action and CGI film Oz The Great and Powerful.

 

She has green skin and is bald under her black hood. Over the hood is a tall and pointy witches hat, which fits snuggly over her hooded head. She has an angry and determined look on her face, has beady littler brown eyes, arched eyebrows, a pointy hooked nose and pointy chin. She has a heavy dose of rouge on her cheeks and chin. Her small closed frowning mouth has pink lips.

 

Her fingers are missing the long black claws of the movie character. They are carrying her broom, which is attached to her hands by rubber bands, which I have elected to leave alone. She has the old style (2011) Disney princess body, so she had articulation in her neck, shoulders, elbows, wrists and hips. She has rubber legs, with internal click stop knee joints, and feet in a fixed angled position for wearing high heels.

 

Her all black outfit is a very accurate copy of what she wears in the movie. Her dress has a faux leather bodice with puffy upper sleeves and stretchy lower sleeves. Over her hands she has cloth half gloves. Her full length knit lace skirt is over a glittery stretchy underskirt; both can be opened in the front to reveal her legs. She has full length stretchy leggings, and knee high boots.

 

She is very unstable free standing, so I have posed her standing supported by a doll stand, which is not included with the doll.

Elphaba was my first (and is currently my only) full body repaint custom. She also has had a boob job, since I was painting over them anyway. :)

I am going somewhere tomorrow and I was wondering if you guys could guess where that is using my two latest uploads as clues.

 

This girl is the vintage style Wicked Witch of the West doll by Bill Greening from 2010 #T2152

 

I have always loved witches for as long as I can remember. I remember I use to draw them all the time when I was in kindergarten. Don't ask me why I like them so much as I have no clue :P

 

Please have a go at guessing where I am going tomorrow :D

This photo is super rich in history. First off it's a parade float with an enormous witch depicting the wicked witch of the west. The caption, "The Bad Witch Of OZ" can be viewed on the bottom of the float. Second, the shop to the far left has a tiny banner that when I investigated reads, "British War Relief Society." This photo was with others of the parade, one other picture was very iconic. It had Donald Duck, who was created in 1934. The British War Relief Society was founded in 1939 and dissolved by the end of WW2. So I would date this particular picture in the early 1940s, in Great Britain. What makes this such a great photograph is the fact that you have this massive witch parade float riding a broom, being pulled by at least 6 (by my count) men/women dressed as witches. A fantastic crossover photograph for Halloween and a new acquisition for my collection. Measures like 4 x 3. I have blown it up a bit for you to see the detail.

One of my newest ornaments- the Wicked /Witch of the West from the original Wizard of Oz movie, this is also one of the most realistic. When I saw the ornament on Ebay, I couldn't resist it!

 

I have several ornaments from The Wizard of Oz now, and this is my favorite. She's small but she packs a punch on my tree!
