Dreamcoat Photo Shoot Competition Winner

Out little competition was a great success. Alex our winner was very excited and had 7 Cosplay outfits ready to go – we ended up choosing three and shot with two of them. Runner up Sarah offered us the use of her house and pool area to shoot and that meant she got involved and received photos as well. Our clothing partners Vintage Hippy and French Kiss Boutique provided fantastic clothes, lingerie and shoes. We had an awesome makeup artist for the day. Liz is a local beauty therapist and did a fantastic job of teaming makeup with the clothing.

Here are a selection of the images from the day.

If you would like a shoot like this, then book now or contact us to find out more.

Alex Hughes

My name is Alex and I heard about your contest from a friend of mine and thought I might give it a go. As to why you should pick me, I guess you might need basic run down of me. I'm a 21year old uni student, I come from a relatively big family and have spent most my life being compared to my sister (the pretty one of the family). Due to this comparison I've spent most of my year overly self conscious and very self judging, it wasn't until I found a hobby called Cosplay that I managed to find my own style and my own confidence. The pictures I'm sending in to this competition are a mix of myself in and out of costume but the confidence and attitude you see in each of them all stems from this creative and somewhat strange hobby and community I found. I know love to dress in all kind of costumes and take pride in myself that I never had, I even go up on stage and perform skits with my friends. I would love to win this photoshoot experience to show the world and most importantly myself just how far I've come from the shy, self conscious person I used to be.

Name: Amy ‘Harley Quinn’ Bechly
Age: 21
Complexion: Caucasian
Height: 158cm
Eyes: Blue
Hair Colour: awesome colours

So the first word that comes to mind when I go to describe myself is ‘CRAZY’. No seriously. I am crazy. Just look at the photos. However, it goes up hill from there! The second word that comes to mind is ‘AWESEOME’. This is because of all the awesome things I do and the awesome personality that I have. I, therefore, am CRAZY AWESOME! Which, in short, is why you should choose me. I love all things wild, wacky, gory and beautiful. My wardrobe consists of numerous styles such as traditional goth, business, Lolita, punk, rockabilly, glamorous and .... cosplay! I swap and mix styles daily so I’m very versatile when it comes to photoshoot ideas. I have also had a fair bit of experience (never paid though) in photographic modelling. This said, however, I love learning new skills and am always open to constructive criticism to get the best results. I strive to achieve the best/most out of all the things I do in life. Speaking of life, some AWESOME things that I do are horse riding, Tae Kwon Do, study physics at university (next year will be Dentistry), run a hobby craft business, cosplay, sing in two choirs, play video games and organise charity events for the Brisbane Tolkien Fellowship. I also love Batman... a lot...

I'd like to enter into your search for Dreamcoat Photography's cover model.

I think I would make a successful model for Dreamcoat Photography as I am a confident young woman that is able to adapt to any style or look. I am confident in not only who I am but in my full voluptuous figure. I love being in front of the camera and, as you know from experience, I take direction well and am always open to feedback and suggestions. Not only am I confident of who I am and how I look but I can talk to anyone of any age or gender. As you have seen from working together, I'm very friendly and mix well in crowds.

I don't really know what else to say. You know me, you know I'm quirky and full of energy with captivating eyes and an alluring mouth. I'm not the skinniest and I'm not the tallest, but I'm proud of my curves and believe I would make a great face for your business.

Why Dreamcoat Photography should pick me - I feel that I hold the qualities in which you are looking for. I am by nature a very out going and adventurist person. I funnily enough enjoy spending hours in awkward positions just to obtain that perfect photo. Because of my job I also easily adapt to all environments which is why I think I would exceed in the challenging role of promo work.

My two dreams as a child were to be either a model or an actress. For reasons i cant explain i just wanted to be seen, for the world to know my face and what kind of potential i had. This is what drew me to Dreamcoat in the first place, they show people for what they are truly capable of and rather than shunning my odd tastes in style and fashion, Dreamcoat embraced and enhanced them.
Vanity will always be a strong part of my addiction to being noticed. Whether it is a fault or virtue I'm not entirely sure at times, but i do try to always take it in my stride.
I think i would be a good choice for this competition because I'm dedicated. Tim once mentioned to me an idea for a caution tape photo shoot and i thought, 'heck, why not? Sounds like fun and I'm in the hands of professionals'. No idea is too crazy for me and whenever photography is mentioned my mind runs wild with ideas of industrial districts and tall grass and living room sets in the middle of a field.
Tim Burton and Helena Bonham Carter once did a couple photoshoot in the middle of a field with a kitchen set and a cooking experiment gone wrong, both their faces half covered in ash and their hair askew. It was the most wonderful thing I'd ever seen because people just look at that and go 'huh...thats...thats actually kind of cool'.
I want to create something like that one day, and i hope you will help me.
Thank you for this opportunity
