Curiouser and curiouser…

I run and write for a geek blog, the Caffeine Crew. That’s nice, you say. There are five million geek blogs out there and plenty are way bigger than you. However, I didn’t start this with becoming the next IGN in mind, or to be a reviewer. I wanted to build a creative community inspired by my wonderful friends and our diner conversations. So, this year, we took a giant leap towards that with the Curiouser photoshoot, an Alice in Wonderland inspired photoshoot. We worked together, came up with the costuming, artistic direction, gathered all the models and produced beautiful art.

That wasn’t the last of it though–we’ve got talented writers at Caffeine Crew, and a photobook from our Curiouser shoot seemed to be the perfect fusion of that creativity. Hence, Curiouser, our journey of wit and whimsy was born. Featuring the photographs of Trisha Minicozzi and Ashley Battista-Fesh, as well as the poetry of Carrie Fulk Vaughn and myself, this is one compilation I’m so proud and excited about.

The release is slated for late September, so stay tuned for the date. The first convention I’m bringing copies to will be Steampunk Unlimited.

In the meanwhile, enjoy some behind the scenes photos:

IMG_1744Always attempting cosplay, even if it’s slapped together at the last second. This was a viper pilot costume from Battlestar Galactica I’d thrown on after a Goodwill trip. It was for a SciFi party my friend was hosting, and so of course I had to come dressed up. I’ll take any excuse, really.
