Cosplayer Spotlight – Tiffany as Steampunk Sally (PHXCC 2017)

Welcome to another Cosplayer Spotlight. Today I bring you my friend Tiffany as “Steampunk Sally” from “The Nightmare Before Christmas” which she premiered at PHXCC 2017.

Tiffany is, quite frankly, doing some of the most original Cosplays I have seen. I think her secret is that she follows her heart and creates from her soul.  Take a look and see what I mean! And to see the full set on Flickr click here.

Steampunk Sally – A Nightmare Before Christmas

Idiivil: Unleashed!

Or, to be more accurate: I finally finished editing this set and added them all to Flikr!

I have broken the images into two categories. Can you guess what they are?

Nudes and Non-Nudes.

And here’s a sample of the SFW variety:

Rowan – Steamy Steampunk

The day before my photo shoot with Christine “iDiivil” Adams in Brian and Nola’s Steampunk Room,
I did a lighting test shoot with my friend Rowan. I did this so I would have a better understanding of how to light the room so I didn’t waste precious time when shooting with Christine.
All I really “needed” was a person to stand in for Christine. However it occurred to me that I could squeeze a whole ‘nother shoot with a whole ‘nother model in that space that I had wanted to shoot in since I first saw it.
So a day or so before hand I put out the call on Facebook and Rowan was the first to respond.
I told her the details of what I was doing and why along with the fact that there was no guarantee as to how many usable images would result from the day’s labor.
But Rowan knows an opportunity when she sees one. She packed several Steampunk outfits and some other goodies and off we went.

I must say, while we were shooting there was a time or two when she did a pose that was evocative enough that my breath caught and I had to work at keeping calm and in control. I think she saw it happen. And I think she liked it when it did…

I have been paying so much attention on editing Christine’s images that I had almost forgotten about Rowan’s.

Shame on me. This woman is a freaking force to be reckoned with!

And so, today I proudly present to you the first image of that set!

It was a Steamy Steampunk themed shoot we did somewhere in the desert of Arizona.

I know I always say this, but it’s still true: There will be more coming in the future!
