For the past four years I have been toying with the idea of doing a Little red riding hood pin-up photo shoot. And after those long 4 years, I did it.
The idea was to chase the spooky and gloomy autumn sun rise and take advantage of all the fog hugging the sleepy surroundings. That was the idea, but the reality was – there was no fog in sight. At least not at the place we picked for our photo shoot.
That didn`t discourage us, we had fun and so did by-passers, fishermen and squirrels I guess. We ended up shooting in the forest, near the lake and on one 19 century tomb that served as a perfect, bit dark (one photo screams Assassins Creed) backdrop that went great with my red outfit.
Onward to Granny`s in the heart of the wood, she marched through the trees with basket and hood…
I have seen so many lovely Little red riding hood pin-up photos, not to mention cosplay themed ones, and countless illustrations inspired by the story.
My interpretation is somewhere between pin-up and weird, goofy and a bit dark me. Costume was made by me (cape and skirt), originally I intended to wear a white skirt but then I felt like a bride with a red cape so I changed to this red skirt.
Once upon a time..
The ending of this photo story just might be leading to another with a simplest of details.
