Amazing living statue by the Pike Street Market, displaying her talents...

Blissful pose...

A little flirtation, perhaps???

Pure delight....

Thanks, Sis!

I head out on a long road trip, early in the morning, so I may be tardy/absent, commenting &/or replying, here on Photo Blog for a while.......I'll try to check in, along the way, but it will probably be pretty "sketchy"..... Catch up with you later, on down the road........
Cheers!

The stone-like paint/makeup certainly completed the illusion quite convincingly!

Awesome photos. I like the #1 most. It looks like she is imitating the face of the one book-cover behind her.

Jay Boggess Replied to Heike 4 years, 2 months ago

Thank You!
I didn't, consciously, notice that, at the time I took the shots, but it was a nice surprise when it was pointed out to me later!

I always wonder what possesses someone to make a career out of something like this.....
Takes all kinds, I guess.....
Anyway, variety is the spice of life.....right???

In #1 her head is tilted exactly as the head of the girl in the book cover behind her, and that makes all the difference for me.

All that paint! How on earth does she get in and out of costume???

I have no idea how she suits up, but it was amazing how still she could stand, for minutes at a time.....
