I surprised myself today by being in the mood for another blog post. xD I'll be honest... It's a good feeling to have! I'm so happy with how the Apple Cavey photos turned out; they're giving me the perfect reason to be a little creative.
I received my three Apple Caveys a few weeks ago. As soon as I saw them in person, I had a pretty good idea of what kind of photoshoot scene I wanted to create. I love the idea of seeing Caveys with what object or theme inspired their existence in the first place so using apples was a must. Kathleen jumped at the chance to be a Cavey model. ^^
The "Viking Hat" (which we believe to be a Minotaur Hat) was actually a last minute addition to her wardrobe. She showed me three different hats she had in mind after we put her outfit together, and after seeing the Minotaur Hat, we knew it was what was needed to complete the ensamble. She really rocks it no matter what she's wearing though!
We decided that she would act as a monster girl posing with the Caveys. In this second photo where she's holding the basket of apples, she doesn't realize that there are Apple Caveys amongst the fruit. She's taking it easy, enjoying her day of walking through the snowy woods. Truth be told, monsters are rather happy creatures, especially when it snows and all other predators in the woods are in hibernation. The forest is theirs, a quiet home where they have full reign over all.
The monster decides to take a break from her walk and look at the apples she took from a nearby animal hollow. Upon further inspection of her new treasures, she realizes that the mythical Apple Caveys are hiding between the real pieces of fruit. O___O The monster's hunger takes over, and without thinking, she starts to form a plan to EAT the Caveys who have so cunningly deceived her during her walk. This trickery is unacceptable in the kingdom she claims as her own!
The monster discovers the little world the Apple Caveys have made for themselves within the juicy fruit. Without hesitation, and Toffee Apple Cavey already in her grasp, she moves towards all of the Caveys. She pauses just for a second, realizing that these creatures may be the last of their kind. Whether she acts on her instinct and gobbles up the Caveys or weakens at the thought of destroying the only remaining Apple Caveys in existence... remains a mystery.
