“Out of the night that covers me, black as the pit from pole to pole, I thank whatever gods may be for my unconquerable soul. In the fell clutch of circumstance I have not winced nor cried aloud. Under the bludgeonings of chance, my head is bloody but unbowed. Beyond this place of wrath and tears looms but the horror of the shade, And yet the menace of the years finds and shall find me unafraid. It matters not how strait the gate, how charged with punishments the scroll, I am the master of my fate,
I am the captain of my soul.”
Invictus by Willam Henley
This Viking cosplay shoot was made possible from some super awesome and amazingly talented friends of mine all coming together to bring their best skills to light.
This shoot with Kyleigh and this incredible team together was an absolute blast. My sister, Holly, did an incredible job doing the makeup for this shoot and Hannah blew it out of the water with pulling it altogether with that hair styling. Not to mention, it was really fun to get my creative hands on something a little different for this shoot and getting to distress Kyleigh’s costume with some good ol’ fashioned painting and fabric sanding to really put the final touches on this look together.
By the time we got the makeup, hair, and outfit altogether, I only had about 30 minutes left of light!! And Ky did an AWESOME job getting into character super fast as we raced against the setting sun through Ault Park in Cincinnati for this super bad ass shoot together. Cannot wait to do more of these in the upcoming months with this incredibly talented team!! Here’s some behind the scenes to enjoy :)
