Presenting: Adventures of Girl Reporter!

Totes Me!
Today I had a shoot, themed "film noir", which was VERY loosely interpreted. And so here starts a series of posts in which I describe the Adventures of Girl Reporter! Which didn't even come up until MUCH later in a very elaborate shot which hasn't seen processing and uploading yet, coordinated and shot by an ex-boss of mine. Anyway, I went looking through the web album of the organizer, who isn't in the habit of post-processing before uploading stuff, and let me tell you, these pictures BEGGED captioning.

Warning: post is VERY PICTURE HEAVY.

Also, I don't watch any film noir or detective stuff, and I just had some caramel popcorn, so the lines are all crack.


Photobucket
Andrew as The Boss!

Photobucket
Laura as Femme Fatale!

Photobucket
Stefano as Mobster!

Photobucket
AND ME!

Yeah, this is one whole ego trip and totally told only from my perspective, so most of these pictures will feature me because I have zero inclination to tell the other perspectives, but nonetheless!


It is a perfectly normal day and for some reason, likely an errand sent by The Boss, Girl Reporter is off to check something in a safe, and she spots something!

Photobucket
It is the dastardly Mobster and the Femme Fatale, the sneakiest of the sneaky underworld!

Photobucket
So Girl Reporter tries to sneak up on them, armed with a gun.

Photobucket
And tries to climb up, but remembers there's nothing actually very important in the safe, so laughs and decides to run off to tell the Boss.

Photobucket
Girl Report: OMG BOSS! I THOUGHT I SAW SOMEONE TRYING TO BREAK THE SAFE!

Photobucket
Boss: Calm down now, what did you see?

Photobucket
Girl Report: Someone trying to break into the safe. Your safe. You know. The one out there. That you thought was so obvious no one would take it seriously. You TOTALLY have to write up something now.

Photobucket
Boss: Oh my fuck.

Photobucket
Girl Reporter: Well, you totally have to now!

Photobucket
Boss: OK, OK. Here we go. I'll type something up right quick.

Photobucket
Girl Reporter: You have a typo.

Photobucket
Boss: ....
Girl Report: .....

Photobucket
Boss: Look, do you want to write this goddamn thing?
Girl Reporter: I totally will! And better than you too.

Photobucket
Girl Report: *hums*

Photobucket
Boss: THAT'S ALL WRONG.
Girl Reporter: WHADDYA MEAN ALL WRONG?

Photobucket
Girl Report: Look, I work really hard in this office okay?! Paperwork, cleaning, cooking, and I bring you your goddamn coffee. OMG!

Photobucket
Boss: OK, fuhgeddaboutit. I'm going to check out the safe. You stay here. It might be dangerous.
Girl Reporter: Oh sure. 'Cos I'm a girl. Jerkface.

Photobucket
Girl Reporter: Alone at last to work.

Photobucket
Girl Reporter: Sometimes I wish my life wasn't so dull...

Photobucket
Girl Reporter: Welp - while the Boss is gone, I might as well have a smoke!

Photobucket
Girl Reporter: Oops, phone call.

Photobucket
Boss: .... What the hell do you think you're doing?
Girl Reporter: Working.

Photobucket
Boss: FEET. OFF MY TABLE.
Girl Reporter: PUNCH. IN YOUR FACE.


After this, our intrepid Girl Reporter was kicked out of the office to do some field work. WHAT WILL HAPPEN NEXT?

Ahaha, this is great. :D I love the idea for silhouettes in the window at the start as well!

Thanks! We did the silhouettes much later in the shoot, but it worked really well for my purposes. There's another set of portraits as well, taken by one of the other photographers, which hasn't been processed yet. ^_^

Haha, the outfit IS pretty awesome! I threw it together from stuff I had initially collected for a gothic lolita shoot ^^ (The hat that Laura is wearing is also mine, and the shoulder stole too!)

I met the organizer through Model Mayhem, yes.

That looks like so much fun. Also, you rock blue eyeshadow in a way few people can.

Blue eyeshadow is tricky - I find it depends on the shade, and skin tone. My skin tone is yellow-ish, so blue doesn't look too tacky against it.
