Faint of Heart - Persephone and Hades Romance by AtticRaiders
Faint of Heart - Persephone and Hades Romance
Thanks to an excellent team of folks who played along, I knocked off one of my ultimate bucket list photo shoot ideas I've been itching to do for 3 years now.

Costumes are handmade and custom designed by me for this photo shoot. Mostly made out of recycled materials :D

Inspired by this AMAZING piece____>>>…

Utterly amazing work!

It is fantastic to see the Hellsing style glasses being made in real life with such skill.
