This IS a Halloween Post!
SO when I was first modeling, I did some kind of promo shoot thing for Salon Sessions in Pasadena. I think the gist of it was we do a bunch of avant guard hair stuff to update the books of the stylists at the salon, which they can use to show everyone how awesome they were (truthfully, they were really awesome at hair). I think it was maybe my second or third shoot ever. ANYWHO, the photographers, Joe Rubinstein and Joe Miller, were super nice, and we became friends AND myspace friends (we go THAT far back), and then it turned out Joe Rubinstein had this crazy place called The Compound in El Serreno, and he ended up renting me a room there (it was my first place in LA proper, when I flew the nest of Claremont). AND he became my boss at Polite in Public.
So that was all unnecessary nonsense to let you know that the pictures I'm about to share with you were from a shoot I did with Joe Rubinstein. And also that they are OLD. It was a LONG TIME AGO. I had bangs, I lived at The Compound, and life was weird. He was working on a photography pet project that centered around fights. This one was a model fight. I fought Piper Hinson. She won.
Also, in case you weren't clear, none of this is remotely real. It's all model fighting, and modeling things is all about being a representation of them (i.e., fake. Oh no...am I real girl?!?). SO PLEASE DON'T HAVE NIGHTMARES ON MY ACCOUNT! Don't scroll if you're squeamish about obviously fake violence.
