With respects to my friend =cosfrog I was requested by the band to cover a model in nothing but candy and had to balance that idea without treading on his image Trick or Treat.
I think this picture does that well, using 10 POUNDS of gummi bears and a brilliant makeup job from MDM Artistry. This is promotional work for the upcoming Lips Like Morphine album SUGARUSH which is why all the pink bits are strategically covered, so as to make it Wal-Mart friendly, amongst other outlets. Personally I love the model's Rock n' Roll, see-if-I-care attitude/expression in this photo, which just completes the image for me.

Gummy yummy, definitely a candy bash of an image. Long ago for a bit I worked in a candy shop that specialized in gummi items, we had them all. Bears, snakes, worms, you name it. The vibrant colors, the overall composition and the combination of an excellent photographer and a willing and excellent model just makes for a stunning piece of work.

That's a beautiful shot. Her expression is blank and makes me wonder if she's even alive.

Love the far away look in Sarah's eyes. Man, I would probably destroy the prop items by eating them. :)

Oh, I was totally eating them the whole time. That's the lovely thing about 10 lbs of gummies ... they never seem to disappear! :dance:

Its amazing. VERY colorful - very fun. The 80's makup blends into, rather than clashes with the Gummi's. The angle of the shot - the hair - EVERYTHING...I think its perfect.

I know you practically placed every single bear but it still feels like you just went crazy and tossed everything everywhere. I can't wait to see the completed cover.
