38 — A Storm’s Coming
October is one of the few times a year when it’s slightly more acceptable for adults to dress up as super heroes. Spadge & I knew who we wanted to be months ago…
We’d been sourcing the parts for our outfits since August — obviously we knew there would end up being a photo so the pressure was high to hit a certain level of quality. We got the final bits this week & waited for a quiet Sunday evening to head up to the rooftop location. The wind didn’t seem thrilled with the idea of us taking a photo, it made everything 10 times harder. I would have liked to have boomed some lights higher for some more drama to the image but I still think it worked out pretty rad.
I’ll just lave you with this pearl of wisdom. The most important thing in life is to be yourself — unless you can be Batman. Then always be Batman.
