“One of the saddest days of my life was when my mother told me Superman did not exist… She thought I was crying because it’s like Santa Claus is not real. I was crying because there was no one coming with enough power to save us.”

Cellphone photos from the wig photoshoot yesterday. (Photos from the big camera coming soon)
This is Dan, Jenn, and Tuktuk.
I was so happy that Jenn could come out with her baby to this shoot. There aren’t near enough Mom heroes out there in fiction, so just this image made me so happy.
These wig shoots don’t really need costuming—it’s all about the hair, after all—but I had a lot of fun pulling together some suggestive costume elements from things we had in the basement. These two are without a doubt my favorites.
The skull-shaped Snapdragon Flower Dragon(Antirrhinum majus) seed pod. The Antirrhinum, commonly known as the snapdragon has been a popular garden plant for many years. Also known as the dragon flower, its common name derives from the resemblance of the flower to a dragon’s head.Yet once the flower has died, leaving behind the seed pod, something a little more macabre appears. The dragon – just a visual metaphor after all – appears to have a skull.
