I'm currently in development for my next big project shoot, warrior women on the beach, with clothes from Handmade in Partick, two beautiful models and smoke effects, so it was somewhat of a good omen when I turned up in a cold, blustery Portobello for another body paint shoot with Annie. We'd been muttering about swimsuit/wetsuit on the beach, but the weather today was most assuredly against the whole idea, so I arrived to find we'd veered into warrior woman.
Now this new plan was distinctly different from the shoot I've been planning but we got some great shots and Gemma was terrifying as she wielded her katana's long swords and other assorted arms. If you look closely as well, you may even notice her blue contacts adding to the dramatic look. I was particularly impressed by Annie's improvised snakeskin effect.
Now off to the laundrette to wash the fake blood out of my backdrop cloth!
