Going Under- littlegem trapped in a glass ball trying to break free

Evanescence – Going Under

Last weekend PurpleSole and I found ourselves with some child free time so thought we would take some Halloween photos. I didn’t want to take gory blood and guts photos as that isn’t my thing, although one of the photos does involve a little fake blood. The idea behind this one was it was meant to be a nod to David Bowie’s character Jareth in Labyrinth. The scene where Sarah is trapped inside the crystal ball trying to break out. Labyrinth is one of my favourite movies and I don’t think we have even remotely done it justice. So we scrapped that idea.

After looking through the photos we had taken PS noticed that they kind of follow a story if you put them together. So this is the first of a three part photo story, that PS thought went nicely with some Evanescence song lyrics.

  1. I haven’t seen the film gem but I can’t believe you don’t do it justice. This is everything: clever, sexy and beautiful. missy ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. This is clever, artistic, ripe for storytelling and just all-round fabulous! You two are a force to be reckoned with when it comes to photography x

  3. I dig Amy Lee’s vocals, so I think the lyrical accompaniment is perfect.

    And while I can see where the inspiration came from, I can also see that this photo is very much its own. I look forward to seeing how the tale unfolds.

    (As for the nakedness, I am personally a huge fan of NOT-naked sexy photos. So I doubly love this picture because it conveys so much mystery and allure, fully clothed. ๐Ÿ™‚ )

    1. Wow thank you! She has got an amazing voice, PS played some of her music after I had finished this post so got to enjoy dancing around whilst cooking dinner!

  4. I love the film Labyrinth and even more so, David Bowie! This has a very intriguing vibe to it, and is very smart! I am looking forward to the other pictures in the series!

  5. A favourite scene from a favourite film, excited to see the triptych…great edit both of you, the world certainly isnโ€™t falling down here!

  6. WOW, this is so very creative! Love the dark feeling of this! Very Halloween-y.
    I can’t wait to start using my glass ball when our studio is ready. I have so many ideas, but just need the room to start playing around with those.

  7. This. Is. Glorious. I love everything about this image aesthetically, but most especially the way it tells a fantasy story and also nods to your D/s relationship. Pure magic.
