When I get bored, I shoot myself
Life is rarely boring around here! Gary and I have talked about doing this for a couple of years and we finally commited to doing it this year.
Gary spent a couple of months growing out a massive amount of facial hair, we hit up the thrift stores and vintage shops around Los Angeles and we booked the studio.
Of course, I mainly shoot very small subjects and lighting people isn't really my expertise so it was a challenge - as well as shooting ourselves on a timer, lol.
We did have a fantastic time doing it all though - obviously.
I also included a gallery with some of the ones we didn't use (yet) but that I liked. How do you think they should be photoshopped? I'm sure there are a million crazy ways to use them ;)
Taking a look at Hot Toys 1/6 scale Marty McFly and visiting some of the locations where Back To The Future was shot
As always, Sideshow leaves nothing out and their attention to detail is outstanding. We absolutely can't wait for them to do a whole line - or at the very least we need a Doc Brown!
Marty's house is located at 9303 Roslyndale Avenue in Arletta, CA. (Note: this is a private residence. Please do not disturb the owners or trespass onto the property)
"Hill Valley High School" is an actual high school, Whittier High School, located at 12417 E. Philadelphia St., in Whittier, CA.
Doc Browns house is The Gamble House, a 1908 Craftsman home designed by famed architects Greene & Greene. It's located at 4 Westmoreland Place, in Pasadena, CA
Holy shit I had fun with these! As a photographer it's such a blast when a client tells you to just have fun and do what you do - so that's exactly what I did!
Mombie & Son are the artistic team that created these OOAK (one of a kind) resin BJD dolls, and yes, you can actually own one (or all) of them to terrorize your own home. Hi, my name is Sharon and I am an enabler.
I had been working on a project about dolls who play with dolls, and what better to use than a sex doll, right? They are life size, fully jointed and have realistic features - all my favorite things.
I did the shoot and contacted the company I borrowed her from numerous times about getting the girl back to them but never got a response about it. That was over a year and a half ago.
First of all, these are incredibly amazing creations. If you can't see past the tits and ass then you should just scroll down, get your visuals and move along. But if you genuinely look at her, she's really really incredible.. She's also really really creepy and scares the crap out of me half the time.
So, what do you do when you are done with it?
I don't want to wrap her up in trash bags again and stash her in the garage. I can't throw her in the trash, she wouldn't fit any way. I can't just set her out on the curb - I really like our neighborhood and would like to continue to live here without being looked at as "the freaky neighbors". I'm sure as hell not going to put her on Craigslist and invite people over to examine her wares.
I'll just skin the bitch.
That's a logical solution.
And so it began
1:6 scale silicone dolls made by Phicen
I am so lucky to get to work with artists and manufacturers around the world who create these amazing figures. Thank you all for allowing me to create images for you!
NOTICE - NSFW
When you receive a 1/6 scale seamless male doll from Phicen, and he comes with 3 detachable penises and no head, well...your imagination runs a bit wild.
My husband is a tv/movie geek - seriously, he is obsessed with all things filmed. Over the years he has had his "favorites" but nothing has come close to his love for Breaking Bad.
You had intelligent writing along with truly brilliant acting...but there was one other magical component to the show - you could actually visit almost all of the places where they filmed.
Thankfully, Albuquerque is embracing this and a number of different tour companies have started to shuttle locals and tourists around to some of the key spots from the show.
For my husband's birthday, I couldn't resist booking a vacation to do just that. And, of course, I couldn't go without bringing our Mezco Walt figures along.
