Ponyo - Fujimoto x Granmamare Part Of Your World
From Ponyo On The Cliff By The Sea

Another from our simply amazing shoot by the divine :iconstrawdoll: who nearly died for us, and is probably screaming FINALLLLY at us getting pictures up from this shoot more than a year afterwards

Costumes by:
:iconarlo-arleh: as sexy Granmamare
:iconalita-b-angel: as Fujimoto

And edited by me, goddamn underwater shoots take a lot of cleaning up in post.

WE LOVE Ghibli if you can't tell from my gallery, and simply adore Ponyo. I love that this photo is almost the reverse little mermaid love story, Sea Goddess drags wizard to this death in the sea.
This was from our second take on the shoot, and I love this photo since we somehow managed to not look like the drowned puffer fish we look like in 80% of all the photos we got,
:iconarlo-arleh: managed to convey such emotion on her face. THAT'S ALL LOVE. (whereas she usually only tolerates me) There's something very dark and romantic about this shot I adore.

So many trials for this photoshoot, we all nearly drowned,
especially :iconstrawdoll: who couldn't swim lol. But a True artist gets her friends to hold her down with a cement block for her work.
See more of her wonderful work here : #strawtography

The Shoot:

We managed to get a second shoot up from the first try where we nearly caught hypothermia and broke Straw's camera. This time we got a proper under water casing and the difference is amazing.
Our wigs are surprisingly... still okay after this. But the heated pool definitely started running the stripes on my costume. Don't mix heated Chlorine and dyed fabrics kids, remember that's how they chemically lighten blue jeans, so anything else cotton based doesn't stand a chance.
Not pictured here are the reflectors all over the floor, our wonderful helpers with cement blocks holding us and our photographer down. Also Ponyo which floated out of the photo haha.


Many thanks has to go to :iconqueencattabby: and :icontreminate: for helping us on the day, couldn't have done it without you :)

Please check out our other photos from this series as I love them all to bits:
Especially this first one by Straw wowser:
