Urban safari.

This gallery contains 12 photos.

So labeled because some of our locations were much lusher in foliage than one would expect to find in the middle of a huge metropolis. Sadly, I did not get a snapshot of the fox that apparently crossed the path of one of the groups headed home after our twilight/night shoot day.

Road trip!

This gallery contains 12 photos.

This past Friday, we shot at Fort Horsted, a renovated Napoleonic fort that now houses a business center and event space. I do love when we are allowed out on a day pass 😀 Not only did we get a cool tour of the creepy old underground tunnels and bunkers, but I finally got a chance to get out of the city for a while! Given, Kent isn’t exactly a long distance away, but it was still fun and different. Here are some pictures and video from location — not really costume-related, but still work-related in that I wouldn’t have …

Random London Pictures!

This gallery contains 8 photos.

Yep, this would be the post where I put up completely random photos of stuff I’ve seen around town. I did the double decker bus tour last time around and took pictures of all the typical monuments, so those are NOT here. If, for some strange reason (hi, mom and dad!) you want to see those old touristy photos, I suggest you head over to my Facebook photo albums. Otherwise, brace yourselves for nonsensical picspam!

International Costumer of Mystery

Hmm. I’ve decided to change the name of my film projects category from “Hollywooded” to “Last Looks”, in recognition of the fact that I am no longer confined to one city for my costuming ventures. Whee! (And no, we didn’t have that many costumes for this particular film, thankfully. It’s rare that an entire project’s worth can fit on one rail, so I had to take a picture to chronicle it.) The comfy little studio we shot at earlier this week. The notes for this post say that I’m supposed to talk here about the fashiony-costumey stuff that I’ve been …

Random Finland pictures

This gallery contains 21 photos.

It will have been one full year since we moved to Finland this May! However, I will be away on a business trip when that anniversary date comes, so I’m posting and scheduling a bunch of stuff early to make up for it. Here is a random hodgepodge of pictures I took while wandering around our little corner of the country in June and July of last year. Yes, this is mostly for you, Mom and Dad 🙂

Weekend in Stockholm

This gallery contains 19 photos.

So we spent this past weekend in Stockholm (only a 40-minute plane ride, though the transport to and from the airports add us as well) and are just now recovering from it. On the up side, though, my deep love for non-LA public transportation remains intact. Gads, I wish I’d grown up somewhere with a decent subway system. Mental note — slipping and slogging your way through winter streets in a large city is much harder than it looks, especially when you’re wearing several pounds of bulky winter clothing o.O It was still fun and very pretty, though! We stayed with …

Midsummer in the Archipelago

This gallery contains 22 photos.

Just sharing some pictures from this past weekend, which we spent out at a cozy little cottage on a tiny island in the Baltic Sea. There were wooden rowboats and we caught perch with fishing nets! We bathed in the sauna with real rainwater! We grilled sausages and heard stories about the wayward moose and bears that sometimes wandered by! It was like a much nicer version of 6th grade camp, and loads of fun. Except for the mosquitoes, of course, but after encountering ones the size of seagulls in Angeles National Forest during one particularly terrifying night shoot, I’ll …
