When Victoria Vine approached me to shoot her cosplay as Lydia from Beetlejuice, I couldn’t be more excited! She had an amazing red wedding dress made for the occasion and all the accessories, from a red rose bouquet to pinstripe umbrella to go with the theme. It was still cold, with a layer of snow blanketing the frozen graveyard ground, but Victoria braved the elements for an awesome nighttime photo shoot in Naugatuck, Connecticut! It was so cold, in fact, that the plastic mount for one of my video lights snapped, making it hard to focus in the dark, but we still got some pretty cool images. I tried to mimic the strong, cinematic lighting from the movie. We got a few strange looks from passers-by and one group of high school guys even stopped to take a selfie with our star!
