Theme: Halloween Haunt
We're transforming a moody 4,000 square ft. urban studio into our first ever Halloween Haunt! For fashion inspiration, look towards the darker edges & corners of your imagination. Use this slam as an opportunity to create incredible spooky content, just in time for the Halloween season. Not sure what to wear? Consider pulling ideas from darker fashion trends like Dark Academia, Gothcore, Mythical creatures, Whimsicore, ect. For further inspiration, search #ReunionSlam on Instagram. Please remember: we celebrate diversity, body positivity, self-expression and creativity. Incorporate your own unique style into your look, let us know if you have any questions, and don't be afraid to get weird.
Please arrive dressed in theme and ready to shoot. Hazy Dazy Floral Co. will be providing spooky inspired floral artisty for models to incorporate into their look - thanks Emily! Although the venue is largely indoors, consider late September weather and expect to layer up or down, bring base neutrals you're confident in, and comfortable shoes to take full advantage of the space. Models will have their own dedicated changing space inside. Tables & a clothing rack will be available for personal belongings - please bring your own hangers if you plan to bring extra clothing items or accessories. Check-in, meet fellow creatives, browse the space for inspiring locations to shoot, & sample lighting by Nanlite USA. Please be prepared to work with many different photographers and models in short micro sessions. Please try and arrive by 4:30pm. Introductions start at 5pm.
