Preparing for a CARRIE Photoshoot
Carrie Photo Shoot

Prom dress? Check. Flowers? Check. Bucket of blood? Check!

It's Prom Night, and you've been voted Prom Queen! But your evening is about to turn into a bloody nightmare...

About this shoot

• In this dramatic photoshoot, you will be photographed in your prom dress, with attractive makeup and holding a bunch of flowers. We will shoot real portraits of you as beautiful Prom Queen using authentic beauty techniques. Then we'll completely cover you in fake blood to recreate that famous Carrie moment. NOTE: For safety reasons, the blood bucket is NOT dropped onto you the way it is in the movie, but instead the blood is carefully applied by hand.

• You will be directed by the photographer into poses which will feature a lot of fake blood.

• This is a very bloody portrait photoshoot in which you will become very messy!

• Maximum x1 person.

Things you need to bring

A prom dress. These can be purchased fairly cheaply on Ebay. It's best to use white or pale pink but you can choose different colours if you wish. Just please avoid dark colours or reds or the blood won't show up. You should also bring a tiara (optional).

• Please keep in mind that whatever clothes or costume you bring may suffer damage or be utterly ruined by the end of the shoot. We use a LOT of blood at Horrify Me!

Beauty makeup. Horrify Me doesn't provide beauty makeup, we only provide horror makeup. If you require beauty / prom queen makeup for your shoot then we recommend you apply your own makeup or we can book a professional makeup artist for you, for an additional fee.

Props: Feel free to bring any appropriate props if you have any that you would like to use (optional).

• Please bring a towel for clean-up at the end.

The shoot

• You will be guided throughout the shoot and instructed how to pose.

• We shoot Carrie in a pure, clean prom dress first, which provides lovely portraits, and then we apply the blood manually for the horror shots. You do not need to bring a bloody dress with you. We will supply all the fake blood.

• All the makeup and fake blood is completely safe. The blood is sugar-based and fully edible so is safe if it gets into your mouth.

Clean up

• At the end of the shoot you can clean up. Everything is harmless but certain parts might pull on your skin like a sticking plaster, or leave small traces of skin glue behind which will need to be washed off.

• You will be able to wash in the studio. Everything comes off pretty easily and you will be able to go home in fairly clean condition, although you might need a shower when you get home.
