Into the Woods

Inspired by Anja at Clever Nettle, I made a paper cut for a photoshoot background — I needed more spooky and less twee, so I made a small cut-out to project into a shadow-y forest. I tried using it like a shadow puppet against a sheet, but couldn't get the sizing I needed. I ended up hanging the cut-out and projecting onto a wall. I had two flashlights this time, one green, one white. It was an interesting experiment in lighting and focus. You can see the paper cut here.

The wolf is a hat we got as a gift. Can you see me?

The little red riding hood is a gift from my talented friend, Sara, who makes many clothes for my kids. Did you know she makes more clothes for my kids than I do? Like ten times as many! Here's a portion of what she's made for my boys. We have so many, in fact, that when getting dressed my youngest always asks, "My friend, Sara, made?"

Unfortunately, I'm a total slacker and never get around to posting thank yous to Sara or my other local friends. Sorry, Sara. Sorry, Bethany. Sorry, Nancy. Sorry, Sonya. Sorry, other Nancy.

This wonderful, hooded capelet is actually for my littlest guy. He was non-compliant the day I wanted to take photos, so I went into the woods alone. See a flash photo of the hood here — it's scary in a different way.
