Sideshow: Alligator Girl



 An ongoing project I have been working on for the past year references common "characters" that one could see in the early American sideshows/circus (you can see the previous shots here  and here). I'm hoping to eventually include the whole set in a book, or at least as a set of prints.

This week, I present the alligator girl in all her glory!


There was only one model I could imagine using for this shoot; the striking Helene Atsuko. Many thanks also to Sammm Agnew for making her suitably scaly!


 You can read a little more about the REAL alligator-skinned marvels over here.

We also played around with a darker style!
