It follows on from last years very popular Horror Hottie and Heroes vs Villains events. Its a simple premise, think of your favourite character from film, comics, mythology, fairytales or folklore and we will transform you into a beautiful interpretation with the help of make up, wigs, prosthetics (if needed) and some very clever camera trickery.
Life can be hard, the daily grinds of work, paying bills, dealing with stress can sometimes feel like it drains all the magic out of us so every once in a while its wonderful to step outside the norm and let our fantasies come alive.I love how women of every age, size and shape let go of any inhabitiosn and really enjoy playing elaborate dress up, often inhabiting characters which are originally represented as younger/slimmer even different genders, it doesn't matter, its a day of fantasy.

The girls attending had told us in advance which characters they would like to become so myself, Lilly and Pooki-Rae spent a very enjoyable few weeks practising and perfecting various takes on these heroic homages. Sometimes our jobs rock!
The favourite looks I worked on were the Riddler and Queen Mab. I also adored creating Beast from X-men. I got through a lot of blue face paint!
|The Riddler-The very talented Tracey made her dress and hat and even brought her own question mark staff|
|Bullseye-This was a perfect mix of comic book and sixties styling|
|The idea for this look came from the bright fur coat the girl owned. It then became one of the most striking looks of the day. Its brilliant when that happens.A tiny seed of an idea creates, well in this case a sexy version of Beast from X-Men|
|Queen Mab from Shakespeare-My personal make up fave. So magical|
|This Roller derby chick made an awesome Batgirl|
Nicky Rockets took some simply awe inspiring pictures and it was without doubt one of my favourite shoots to date.
|Storm meets Ziggy Stardust|
|Yuki Most fruitful, a kick ass Manga character for the lovely Bobby-Lou (not your average baby bump picture)|
|If Ironman was a girl. This costume was a1950's inspired dress with all the Ironman elements and colours, genius|
|Harley Quinn as a showgirl. This very talented lady created her own rhinestone encrusted comic book/showgirl homage|
We are really fortunate that we now have a regulars who have been to all of our "special" events and I'm always so excited to see what they pick to be.
In addition we also had some Pamperbox newbies who fancied unleashing their inner storybook and film characters and that was fantastic too.
Nicky Rockets is all about the props so a few weeks before the event (once we knew what everyone wanted to be) he started making things to accompany the hair, make up and costumes.

On the day of the shoot he even climbed out of a window to grab just the right branch to make Bellatrix Lestranges wand (this kind of batty loveliness is one of the many reasons I married him)
