I'm planning on doing several other shoots like this with glitter, so though I kept this session's "craft herpes" fairly contained... there is more mess to come.
Huge thanks is due to Allison for her creativity and make-up tools/skills. Now I have a technique I can use for future shoots like this. The bath was totally impromptu, but we figured we had to wash off the glitter anyway. The heavy cream from my White Russian addiction came in clutch.
I MacGyver'd my lighting out of a few desk lamps and I also used a cheap onboard LED for a few shots.
