To the Rescue – Spiderverse Shibari

I have been a fan of Spiderman for quite a while; the newer expanded universe has some great new characters. The 90’s cartoons and early movies (Sam Raimi) are still some of my favorite things to watch , and was one of many people going nuts when the trailer for Spiderman: Homecoming dropped.  As the time for the movie’s release got closer, I knew I wanted to do a spider-verse photo shoot. The idea idea to incorporate shibari into the set came while working with rope artist, Argent Lloyd.

I specifically wanted to do something sexy and interesting, but different than other cosplay shoots I had done prior. Argent Lloyd does awesome suspension work and I thought it’d be great to incorporate it  into the spider-verse shoot. When, I pitched my Spider-verse idea to Argent, I was pleasantly surprised that he was excited about the idea. I wasn’t sure how he’d react to the use of comic book characters, but he was eager to do it, just as I was eager to shoot it. Once we set a date and I found my cast, I planned out the story-line and shots.

By the end of the shoot, I was eager to get home, and excited to start editing the photos. The models did such an amazing job enacting the story I set out for them, and were not put off by the physical demands of the shoot.  Argent Lloyd’s shibari work was perfect and added an extra level of sexiness and fun to the story.  Hopefully, I’ll be able to shoot a sequel, continue the story, and work with everyone again.
