OMD4 Meet-N-Pose -
Day of the Dead
Old Londonderry Cinema
November 1, 2015
OMD4 Meet-n-Pose (MNP) was back in action Sunday, November 1 in Edmonton, AB. A late location change saw us back at the old Londonderry movie theatre (thank-you to Darin Wayne for the last-minute save).
Meet-n-Pose is an event organized by OMD4 Makeup & FX and is an opportunity for photographers, models, makeup artists, hairstylists and designers to get together to build their portfolios and network with others in the industry. The event is open to new or experienced individuals.
The original plan for our Day of the Dead theme was to shoot at an abandoned farmhouse and homestead near Bruderheim, AB. Unfortunately, accessing permits and getting permission proved difficult. Oh, well! C'est la vie. We haven't given up on the location. Fingers are crossed for September 2016.
Typically the MNP events do not have a specific theme, but since this one took place on the day after Hallowe'en, also known as the Day of the Dead, the artists involved opted for darker concepts and colours. Surprisingly enough no one used concepts around sugar skulls; however, there were plenty of beads, masks and top hats along with black lace, chiffon and capes.
A great big shout out to our three fabulous photographers: Darin Wayne, Lisa Lovallo and Angela Funk. Finished images from the event started to appear within hours of the event wrapping up. There are so many wonderful pictures coming out of this photoshoot. Wish they could all be shared here, but the ones shown below should give you an idea of the quality being produced.

Thank-you to everyone who participated and made this one of the best Meet-n-Pose events yet.
The next Meet-n-Pose will take place March 16, 2016 to celebrate three years of MNP.
