S.T.E.A.M. by Hopie-chan S.T.E.A.M. by Hopie-chan
Here's the short version behind this shoot. I was contacted by a photog on Model Mayhem about doing something "Victorian" for him, then we decided on trying something Steampunk. Well, with the amazing friends that I have *cough*CELESTIALROGUES*cough*,​ I asked Whitney and Will if they'd have anything they'd let me borrow for photos! From there, they asked Jesse if we could borrow some of her AMAZING clothes that she made for her fashion stuff! And can I just say, wearing these two coats felt like I was wearing legit articles of clothing... they were sooooo perfectly executed!

WELL. Homedude had to cancel because his strobes broke, BUT this was a blessng in disguise! We all still wanted to do the photos, so I asked Julia if she'd take the photos and she was down!!!

We went to Varner Hogg, a historical location near my hometown, and I gotta say this was a really awesome shoot to do. (Well, technically two shoots! We shot this outfit the first day, and another the next day.) Stay tuned, these are great!!

Oh! And the pipe is my boyfriend Score's. We realized you can't have a steampunk shoot without a little "steam"! Kekekeke~. :3

Hi!
First of all, I'd like to say that I really love your work. You're simply awesome!
Me and some friends are planning a steampunk-LARP and we need some inspiration-photos for our website. I wonder, could we use this photo? Of course we will link it all back to you and give you credit on the website.
Here's our website [link] observe that it's under construction! It's in swedish, but I thought that you might would like too see it at least.
If you wanna know more about the LARP, fell freee to ask! :)

I know it's already been said, but every shot I've seen of you has been amazing. You look gorgeous no matter what style you're going with, and if you're not an actual MODEL (professionally) then you should be.

That being said, Fantastic picture. Truly. Gorgeous.
