Jackie Cosplays- The Punisher

I first became familiar with the Punisher when the movie starring Tom Jane came out. I was a senior in high school and went to go see it with a group of friends. The other girls in my group said it was okay, but I loved it! I ended up going again to see it with my dad and then bought the DVD and used to watch it in my dorm when I was pre drinking with my college buddies!

I've began reading a few of the comic books to familiarize myself with the background of Frank Castle and the guy is a bad ass! He is the coolest, "anti hero" ever. I think the hardest part of doing the shoot was finding weapons to use. Castle uses anything, the guy had a gun that shot swords in one of the comics I read! Well clearly I couldn't get anything as cool as that because I am pretty positive that doesn't exist.

My brother in law (my sisters husband) apparently is a weapons enthusiast and brought over everything he has. Now I know I'll be getting some slack because I have a sword and The Punisher never uses a sword blah blah blah, well I highly doubt Frank Castle would throw a fit if there was a sword there and he needed a weapon...

My sister once again shot the photos and she did an incredible job! It was freezing outside and it was right when the snow was starting to really come down so you can imagine how cold we were. We went out to the back alley behind Stella's (my favorite bar!) and shot the majority of the photos there. We also made our way into "Vault Of Midnight" comic book shop downtown for a few photos. Check out more of my sisters work HERE.

Normally I do my own hair and makeup on shoots, but this time I had an entire entourage (which was awesome!) Makeup was done by Erick Gerson Rodriguez who also did my makeup for my wedding. Hair was done by Sin Chun of Sin Republic salon. Sin took REAL bullets and put them in my hair... I kept thinking what if something happens and soccer ball or something comes flying at me and bounces off my head... BAM! That's how I live life though, on the edge...
