    I am flabbergasted at the brilliance of these pictures.

  • DreamBoat January 17th, 2013 3:21 PM

    SO SO SO SO SO RAD. The stars and moon and I have to ask if this was inspired by George Melies because it looks EXACTLY like his movies. #7 is scary and perfect and the best thing ever and CHRISSIE RULES.

      Yes you’re right, the shoot was entirely inspired by George Melies! Clara and I constructed all the props with his work in mind :)

    • Annie at Cher Ami January 18th, 2013 1:45 PM

    You guys should check out Clara’s work also as we both collaborated on this shoot together: http://www.dakosphotos.com/ and if anyone is in the Chicago area, hit her up she needs models!! ;)

  • soviet_kitsch January 17th, 2013 3:53 PM

    #2 is GORGEOUS. Btw, who is that beauty with the long dark hair?

  • JaneLane January 17th, 2013 4:07 PM

    WOW!!!! 4 and 7 are my favorites!!!

  • moonflower January 17th, 2013 4:13 PM

    Especially love the slight awkwardness in picture 4 haha! The whole set reminds me a lot of the smashing pumpkins ‘mellon collie and the infinite sadness” album artwork as well as ‘La Voyage dans la lune. Check them out too! So inspiring

    Hey Rookie,
    Sorry this is out of context but didn’t know how to reach out for a quick and visible call:

    Are you going to say anything about Aaron Swartz? I know he’s not a girl but his fight for an open, free internet was so important.

    Please consider some kind of tribute and spreading of this legacy.

    Love,

  • GlitterKitty January 17th, 2013 4:30 PM

    You just made this little ballerina very happy :) So gorgeous and amazing and beautiful and dreamy.

  • moonchild January 17th, 2013 4:41 PM

    OH MY GODDDD
    these are so so fabulous!
    I love the shredded fabric in the back! Maybe i should do that for my room…

  • HollinsCollins January 17th, 2013 4:44 PM

    WOW yeah this is up at the top of my list of favorite eye candies.
    I like 1, 5 and 8…but all of them are fantastic.
    And that is so COOL that they’re inspired by George Melies!!! Though all my knowledge of him comes from Hugo :s

  • Sophii January 17th, 2013 4:46 PM

    This is so beautiful. Definitely one of my favourite ever eye candies <3

    FAVORITE ROOKIE SHOOT!
    Amazing, love the theme, love the costumes, love the art of all the photographs: like all the people were part of one big art piece.
    Fantastic!

  • sophiethewitch January 17th, 2013 6:08 PM

    It has this interesting effect of being like a photoshoot of a photoshoot… the cardboard stars especially give the impression that you’re on a set of some kind. But then also in it, in a surreal way. The acting is evident, like the illusion draws attention to itself and to the fact that it’s an illusion, which isn’t usually considered a good thing, but here it’s magic. Definately my favorite.

  • Marian January 17th, 2013 6:19 PM

    These are so beautiful and inspiring

  • 3LL3NH January 17th, 2013 6:55 PM

    This is wonderful. I love the dancing… Rookie should consider doing a dance theme in the future. Mythology and Religion have been enjoyable, but dance would be heaven.

    Again, beautiful- I love the sets and colours (they make me think, a little bit, of Hugo).

  • Aviva January 17th, 2013 6:56 PM

    Wow. This is my new favorite eye candy!

  • Roz G. January 17th, 2013 7:25 PM

    One of my favorite Eye Candy! SOOOO pretty :)

  • catpower44 January 17th, 2013 7:30 PM

    I love the one with the bird, the girls expressions just caught my attention. Beautiful photos :)

  • Isabelle97 January 18th, 2013 10:59 AM

    Love this ^^ but who is that creepy guy in #6? He reminds me somewhat of the medieval plague doctors with their bird-masks…

    • Chrissie January 18th, 2013 2:56 PM

      that was the point! haha

  • Mary the freak January 18th, 2013 11:08 AM

    This reminds me so much of the silent film scenes in Hugo, which I absolutely adore. So beautiful and simple, too!!!!! <3

  • katharine January 18th, 2013 9:36 PM
