Halloween Army by straywind Halloween Army by straywind
As part of the shoot last month my friends helped arrange this shot so it looks like I'm commanding a jack-o-lantern army. The photo has a bit of blur to it, but I think that makes it more menacing. Somehow Sam still ends up looking kind of cute and cuddly. XD

It took about 15 people 7 hours to carve all these pumpkins (there were 32 of them in total). It was an awesome party!

Thanks! The character is from an American horror movie and I adore the holiday so it was such a fun costume to wear and shoot. The night shoot we did was really successful. The jack-o-lanterns look so cool in photos. :3

I saw this photo on tumblr but I had no idea it was you underneath it! I adore this cosplay, and I really admire all of the time and effort that went into setting up a shot like this.

I love the fact this costume is something that no one expects from me. I know on Halloween so many people debated if I was just a prop and if I was a boy or a girl. It was really neat to be in a costume where your identity is so incognito. This shoot was a big dream of mine from when I first watched the movie. I’m so happy it worked out and that all my friends helped make the shoot so amazing. :3

I really love the blur on the pumpkins. It almost looks like they're charging forward to attack!

I like the blur too. The blur gives a sense of motion and I know Sam would totally send jack-o-lanterns out on the attack. XD
