While I was in the middle of photographing Melaine wearing some Victorian clothes I kept finding that the corsets that I had picked out for her were too big. Since she has a cool purple streak in her hair, I mentioned that I had just the right corset for her. Before we knew it the photoshoot went off in a completely new direction, and Melaine had fun being a nasty pirate wench.
I met Melaine while I was staffing my booth at the fair this year, and I thought she would be perfect for an upcoming project that I need someone who can project a nice and mean side of their personality. After watching Melaine instantly switch from a sweet Victorian lady, to a pirate who was ordering me off of her boat, I have to say I think I found the model I was looking for.
