After a long week after getting sick LARPing I’m back to feeling vaguely human again, yay! The last of my props arrived for my Followers of Set outfit, and I finally got around to ordering a photography backdrop and stand. Finally. A friend said he’d lend me his DJ performing equipment too. Some honeycomb lights and colored gels, plus smoke machine. This is going to be a fun photo shoot, but I do worry that I will choke myself on the smoke machine fog. Nerd asthma problems, lol. The things we do for art!
I’ve been thinking about doing this vampire series for a few years now, so it’s nice to have it start coming together. I’m not sure if I should do matching videos, or just focus on photos for the series.
VISA and Mastercard compliance rules mean I can’t have any “implied violence including but not limited too: blood (anywhere) or weapons (even in the background sitting on a floor). **I’ve written a more detailed explanation of what this is, how it works and why it matters HERE** This kind of makes vampire and fantasy shoots involving nudity, even if its just me solo in the photos/videos sort of difficult and annoying. Nothing I can do about it though, the creditcard processors have final call and they don’t like horror + nudity. Sad panda! I’m not sure how that will go with my idea for the Nosferatu set, or my Tzimisce set. *shrugs*.
Looking forward to filthy rave tree hugging hippy Gangrel though :p Should be pretty funny to source outfit pieces!

MY REPLIES TO YOU~
fictionalized says: Aww, I’ll admit I’m a bit disappointed we might not get a Tzimisce set, that sounds… interesting. =)
Don’t worry, never said there wouldn’t be a Tzimisce set. I’m determined!! I just have to get more creative >:D

The problem is I’m not sure what I can *do* in each video. I can’t strip off the costumes, they are too fiddly. Made for photos and not video or IRL worldly use. I’d need a decent amount of variation too between the 13 sets I have planned so far, and without being able to even strip off, and not being allowed to even have open leg let alone sexual stuff going on due to VISA/Mastercard being asshats and banning sex + horror stuff, yeah… not sure what I’d *do* in a video tbh~
