41: SOME GOOD STORIES COME FROM BAD DECISIONS

Chris and I put a great amount of thought and time into our outfits, hair, and makeup for this shoot. The idea was conceived on one of many late night bad movie-fests that Chris and I revel in. We had preconceived ideas of why this pair was all glammed out for their mug shot. But I have decided to let you, the viewer, come up with your own conclusion.

Our lighting set up was simple, two soft box lights at 45 degree angles set on us which produced minimal shadows and an even light. Most of our work this time was in props and wardrobe. The height marker was a creation of Chris as well as the numbered cards.

I slipped into my "floozy top" I found at a thrift store. Then it took great pains to rat and funk up my hair and mess my make-up just right.

Chris spent a few days periodically pouring coffee or beer down the front of his white shirt for an "all night with too much to drink" look. It also was good timing that he had just gone through some major surgery and was still pretty swollen and had nice pink puffy scars. I think it really makes you wonder what in the hell kind of naughty things these two were up to!

We're making our mama's proud!
