Give Me A Quarter, I’ll Tell You Your Fortune

When wonderwoman photographer Lydia Hudgens was in LA last month along with her friend Rebecca, we met up for some girlytime and a lil’ photoshoot in Echo Park. The day before, we went thrifting and I found a pastel dress that was perfect for the shoot. I wanted to invoke some wacky fortune teller vibes, inspired by my three favorite sassy psychics in film: Renée Taylor in Love Is All There Is (perhaps I am the only one of us who has seen this movie) Judith Ivey in Hello Again (a Shelley Long masterpiece,) ending with a TOUCH of Zelda Rubenstein, but definitely more Madame Serena from Teen Witch rather than Tangina from Poltergeist. I basically wanted something long, 70′s-ish and topped off with lots of jewelz. Rebecca worked her magic and made my hair and makeup look unbelievable. I had so much fun with those ladies that I’m SUPER sad Lydia will be moving to the other side of the country! All of you lucky guys and gals in NYC are going to have a very lovely new neighbor soon. I have another set of photos from the shoot that I will post later, but in the meantime you can check out more of Lydia’s work on her FB page!

Also, 2nd to last picture makes me think of the gypsy fortune tellers in HORROR FILMS STARING DOWN AT YOU BECAUSE THEY SEE YOUR DEATH.
