Look ma! Dolled up at the launch of new clothing line KYO!

Went to support my girl Katie Savoy last night at the launch of a wonderful new line called KYO (www.designbykyo.com Instagram: @designbykyo)! Katie was the model for the line and it looked amazing. See some shots below! (For more Katie, go to www.katiesavoy.com)

KYO is designed by the lovely Neha Kapur Nayyar.  Her clothing is feminine, conservative, yet fashion forward, and original.  It was such a pleasure to meet her.

As you can see Katie and I didn’t have a problem taking some awkward photos next to the mannequins.  I mean we’re never weird at events. Ever. We definitely don’t spill things on our shawls or stand in the middle of the room alone…Ever…

PS. The outfit I’m wearing was styled by my friend Kerry Hennessy of House of Leighland Hennessy!  If you need styling, they are the ones to go to.   Twitter: @maisonlh Instagram: @leighlandhennessy

 

A new hobby! Film photography

I CAN’T GET ENOUGH. I love taking pictures with film cameras. It makes me feel like I’m *insert impressive cultured artist name.

Boo.Thats a wrap on Crush the Skull!

I can’t believe I have to say goodbye to all of these wonderful people.  I have never enjoyed working on a movie so much.  I loved sinking my teeth into this weird character. And I feel like like I made some really great friends.  As you can see from all of the sad face pictures…it was an emotional day. I can only hope this movie turns out as good as I think it will…just so I can see all of these people again either at festivals or on future projects. Thats a wrap on Crush the Skull! I can’t WAIT to show it to everyone.

Day Seven: Crush the Skull

Tim Chiou wrapped today, and I started to get super emotional!  I wasn’t expecting to be so sad on the SECOND to last day. Lord knows what tomorrow will be like.  Other than that, it was really fun today.  Chris Riedell made me laugh during our entire scene. Which was a welcome departure from my normal “hysterics.”  And today I got to fake shoot a gun…which I realized I am terrible at.  I have never used a real one…so that’s probably why. Highlight of the day. I got to look through a door jam with intensity. Acting!

Day Six: Crush the Skull

Today was the EASIEST day by far!!! I didn’t have to scream or cry at ALL!  All I had to do was walk down hallways.  And then I took a nap.  This was actually called “work.”  Acting.  On set today I was reunited with the fantastic “killer” Walt Bost. Walt is actually the nicest man in real life.  But, in this movie, not so much.  The blood splatter on Walt and I was especially detailed today.  (Thanks to Becca Abraham) Also…Katie Savoy and I had some really “candid” moments watching playback.  Tomorrow will not be so easy. A lot of screaming to come…

Day Five: Crush the Skull

I have a whole new respect for screamers in horror movies.  That shizz is hard…especially when it is accompanied by running.  This  can be illustrated by our lead, Chris Dinh, taking a well deserved nap on some cardboard. Also, take a look at my view of the crew as we filmed in the hallway.  They look pretty badass.  Not to mention the makeup peeps, Becca Abraham and Hannah Sherrer, were on top of their game.  They worked their creepy magic on Tim Chiou doing some amazing special effects makeup.  He may or may not have had to wear a green skintight jumpsuit…for reasons I will not disclose 🙂 So stoked because tomorrow I get to work with the lovely Walt Bost again! Also, I got to see the promo that we shot at the end of yesterday. It looks AMAZING! I can’t wait for it to come out.

Day Four: Crush the Skull

Today we shot a creepy promo and I did my voiceover work from the dungeon.  I realized today that I only have four days left of shooting and the thought was very sad indeed. I will miss it a lot.  Hopefully this is just one of many features to come where I can work with these people. 🙂
