Come to the Sunshine

Delightfully eerie and eerily delightful.

    I LOVE number 4. The mini furniture is so kooky and cute. I also love the girl’s crown with a castle on top. These pictures are magical.

  • rosiesayrelax June 6th, 2012 3:09 PM

    the depth of the story behind these images is beautiful. ha.

    the spiky ball reminds me of a puffer-fish. anyone else?

    This is quite creepy, but in a sort-of funny way. It’s really nice to see a mix of girls and also to see that one of them is still wearing braces. It just feels sweet and teenager-y.

  • mollywobbles June 6th, 2012 3:11 PM

    I love the white contact lenses (I’m only assuming that’s what was used) they give it such a dreamy and eerie effect ^_^

    Also number 8 is precious :3

    • Maddy June 6th, 2012 3:24 PM

      It looks like white eyeshadow.

      • ivoire June 7th, 2012 6:34 AM

        i can actually roll my eyes back far enough to do that lolz.

  • whodatgal June 6th, 2012 3:14 PM

    Delightfully eerie and eerily delightful. Hahha. Almost my favorite shoot! :D

  • Claudia June 6th, 2012 3:15 PM

    I also love all of the colors in this, and how there is sort of a story too! Lovey.

  • rainingmay June 6th, 2012 3:15 PM

    Sooo cute. I love the mix of creepy and cheerful. they’re so summery and cheerful but also kind of weird and disturbing. And the colors are wonderful. ughhh they’re all just so perfect

  • Susann June 6th, 2012 3:16 PM

    Such fun photos! I really like the flower crowns! :)

    this photoshoot has inspired me to go put dollhouse furniture on my head like in photo 4. (what? I’m totally serious.)

  • Naomi June 6th, 2012 3:24 PM

    the best ever.

  • TheGreatandPowerfulRandini June 6th, 2012 3:44 PM

    The eyes are so cool! I love the flower crown/creepy eyes combo. The last picture is kind of super extremely perfect.

  • J.D.K Jr. June 6th, 2012 3:45 PM

    Definitely getting some “The Craft” vibes here. Another great editorial.

  • KinuKinu June 6th, 2012 3:52 PM

    Very Beautiful…

  • marypee22 June 6th, 2012 3:54 PM

    This is like The Virgin Suicides mixed with The Craft

  • Nicole June 6th, 2012 3:54 PM

  • yourenotfunny June 6th, 2012 4:00 PM

  • teenager June 6th, 2012 4:07 PM

  • ToriLynne June 6th, 2012 5:56 PM

    Kinda creepy but LOVE! Picture 16 is my absolute favorite! Amazing job!
    xo, Tori

  • RhiaSnape June 6th, 2012 5:57 PM

    Don’t you think that 16 is very virgin suicide-esque?

  • Sea goddess June 6th, 2012 5:59 PM

    The colors are magnificent!!! And the white dresses are precious. FLOWER CROWNS THE NEW BLACK. I loves the blue streak of hair :)) my fav one is #16 …i wish soo bad i could be in a photoshoot for rookie!!

  • Quinnpinn June 6th, 2012 6:11 PM

    I can’t even…
    this is the coolest thing ever!
    So far, this month’s theme is one of my all time favorites. :)

  • WitchesRave June 6th, 2012 6:30 PM

    I love the shoots that Rookie does like this one, but will you guys ever do fashion shoots (that are just a creative) with clothes that we can buy locally or online from better known retailers?

    And i really want to walk around wearing those contact lenses for a day, that would be sweeeeeeeeeet

    • Arabelle June 6th, 2012 7:21 PM

      a lot of the clothes in past shoots have been from retail chains!

    • Lauren Poor June 6th, 2012 10:49 PM

      Get creative with whatever’s around you- I bet you could find a way to make something like whatever outfits you want.

    • Lauren Poor June 6th, 2012 10:53 PM

      (But of course I’ll keep that in mind. Most of the time my favorite style is made from junk people throw away and cheap clothing, so I’d love to incorporate clothes more from that spectrum.)

  • aliceee June 6th, 2012 7:22 PM

    looooove this. I don’t know whether I’d run away from these girls or beg them to let me join their cult

  • missblack June 6th, 2012 8:26 PM

    Ahhhhh those creepy people look like wights!!! I’m really scared now.


  • Hedwig June 6th, 2012 8:43 PM

    I just freaked out AMAZING AMAZING AMAZING! The long pink dress! The flower crowns! The jewellry! EVERYTHING! Wow that just made my day! Plus, i’m gonna wear my own flower crown today.

  • Narnie June 7th, 2012 4:56 AM

    This is the best! I love that it’s a little narrative, amazing.

  • MinaM8 June 7th, 2012 6:39 AM

    This is amazing! It’s like mixing reality and something else :D

  • Eleanor June 7th, 2012 10:24 AM

    favourite rookie shoot ever! lauren is so talented.

  • saltwater June 7th, 2012 10:44 AM

    i LOVE this so much oh my god. 7 and 12 especially. the doll house crown is amazing. THIS IS SO PRETTY.

  • marj0 June 7th, 2012 11:18 AM

    I love the fact that there’s a story in this photos!

  • Pashupati June 7th, 2012 12:12 PM

    Eyes can’t unsee.

  • FossilisedUnicorn June 8th, 2012 5:10 AM

    I love this! The colours, face paint, crowns, creepy eyes and just the overall Rookieness of this.

  • Alex S. June 8th, 2012 10:54 PM

    Lauren’s photos are always so refreshing.

  • hvit June 11th, 2012 11:29 AM

    Oh I love this. I also love the general Rookie thing of mixed size/colour models, braces, whatever.

    What’s bad is that it’s still uncommon enough that I feel I need to comment on it. Sigh.

  • Lucille June 21st, 2012 5:44 PM


  • FiveDimesForNineLives July 13th, 2012 12:05 PM

    I literally adore this picture. I feel like they are going out to a really fancy tea that I wish I was invited to. If anything the flower crowns are to die for.

  • thecurlygurly July 18th, 2012 6:55 PM

    this creeps me out a little bit, but in the most MOST AMAZING WAY. this is one on my favorite eye-candies.
