I WON! I WON! Thank you ^pullingcandy, ^DistortedSmile and `RockstarVanity for putting on such a great contest that mixes two different galleries. It was so much fun to step out of my comfort zone! I got a lot of slack for this photo from friends and family, and I stood up for myself and won. Thank you!


IV. Thou Shalt Self Portrait Contest where we take a self portrait but "Not just any self portrait, though - a bloody one. A bloody, gory, GLAMOROUS self portrait, since we are combining two galleries in to one, to maximize your fun." "This is a collaboration between two galleries; the Horror/Macabre and the Pin-Up and Glam"

Have a very unmerry anniversary DA! HAHAHAHA

I just want you to know this is the FIRST time I've ever made fake blood. I used a recipe off the internet. It is pretty much just Karo, water and food coloring

You play a wicked game with my red tinged eyes, these words are muffled and shushed by the surprise poetry in your stance. Thank you for the release, never doubt it Della.

mesmerizing madness from the deepest desires of my infected mind. Your juices flow unseen into my blackened eyes and consumes my cortex, like spiders slithering through my veins. You are murderous without intent and I am your atrocity.

The fake blood might shock some people not used to it and so they probably just can't see past that right away. :) But it really is a brilliant shot!

lovely compostion and pose - you really hit the nail with glamour and bloody too (pearls and martini glass are awesome for that) - i think i'd like to see more light on the top left of the image, maybe dodge it some - would also like to see all that martini glass - you are doing such creative work!

I added a dark vignette on the image, mostly because I didn't like my hair in the top left... thus the crop as well. The original also has more of the martini glass, but since I wanted to crop to my hair, I felt the need to crop out some empty space above the martini glass. Its one of those shots where I wish I could have gone back and fixed my hair.
