    Alice, age 9 with Flies by Kelly Is Nice Photography | www.kellyisnice.com

    I’ve been saving these dead flies for a while. They’ve literally been in a ziploc bag on my bulletin board for six months. I know that’s a bit creepy and weird but they’re so pretty. It’s rainy and gross outside so we decided to do a photoshoot to stave off our boredom and Alice lovingly let me glue them to her face. She earned twelve gold stars today.

    You can check out more of Alice’s cosplays on Buzzfeed.

    After many weeks of crafting, scouting, researching, shooting and editing they’re finally complete.  This set took six separate days of shooting at several locations.  It’s definitely the most involved cosplay we’ve done but it was all worth it because it’s now my favorite.  Joan was such an incredible person and someone I think every little girl should learn about.  Whether her voices were real or not her bravery is unquestionable.  Her unwavering faith was strong enough to lead her to victory against all odds and keep her going through miserable months of torture. threats of rape, and eventually agonizing death.  All while she was a teenager.  Um, so yeah.  She’s awesome.

    While most of our research was done through books we checked out a few movies for Alice to watch and learn about the battles and time period.  The Messenger with Milla Jovovich was the closest we found to actual events but the spiritual parts were pretty dark and weird.  Of course, Alice liked it a lot and it’s her new favorite movie.  Joan of Arc with Leelee Sobieski is not even remotely accurate and ridiculously long and honestly maybe the worst movie I’ve ever seen and I wouldn’t wish it on my worst enemy and every time you come across it you should kill it with fire just so that it would be a slightly more accurate representation of Joan’s life.

    A special “thank you” to the Reeds who generously lent us the use of their beautiful horse, Spirit, and allowed us to pretend to burn our daughter alive in their back yard.

    A cosplay featuring Alice, (age 8) as Margot Tenenbaum and introducing her sweet boyfriend, London as Richie Tenenbaum by Kelly Is Nice Photography.

    Alice: “I wish London was my brother.”

    Mom: “If he was your brother then he couldn’t be your boyfriend.”

    Alice: “I’m adopted.”

    Alice especially loved this cosplay. Mostly, because it meant that she got to spend time with London but also because she got to wear a fur coat and play with fake cigarettes. She liked the subtle humor of the movie and had a lot of fun getting into character. I wish we had some behind the scenes video of the two of them together. There was a lot of giggling going on. Oh, and that hand holding. I didn’t tell them to do that. They just did… and then I died.

    I love my mini model.

  14. I recently finished my first commissioned drawing. It is also my first attempt at illustrating with my Wacom tablet. (The line work was done with pen and ink and then scanned. I know a lot of you out there are super wizards at the beast that is the Wacom tablet so be kind to my newbie skills.) This drawing is for NV Cheerleading. Their mascot is a phoenix so they wanted a “Justice League” type cheerleader with fire wings. While spending more hours than I’m willing to mention I was reminded of why I got into photography. Drawing is hard… and time consuming. Not that photography isn’t but it’s at least easier for me. Also, digital is my friend.

    She isn’t perfect but she is something I never thought I’d be able to do. Personal victory.
