Behind the Scenes! Making Siamese Twins

Making identical twin models Megan Murrago and Joey Bones into a pair of conjoined twins was one of my absolute favorite shoots of all time. Tash Kouri of Body Art by Tash (tashkouri.com), and I developed the concept together, and shot with Jae Hwang of Eleven Images. The results were beyond anything I could have imagined.

I sculpted and ran the gelatin prosthetic piece that conjoined the twins, and created their severe and slightly vintage makeup, while Tash created their body paint looks, and amazing headdresses. We both brought together everything from the depths of our closets to create their wardrobe.  Jae was kind enough to take a few behind the scenes photos as we got the models ready.
