The State Scare here in Belleville NJ to promote the reopening of the ever popular seasonal, State Scare Haunted Attraction. Not your average haunted house mind you. I've been behind the scenes, and was even there while the owner Anthony Giordano (and special effects makeup artist extraordinaire) purchased some vintage furniture and toys as props.

It was quite fascinating to watch the transformation from belles into nightly beasts. The warm smiles
suddenly turn into intense stares from behind the decaying skin. I held back my excitement and worked along side their in (haunted) house photographer, Kelly. We exchanged ideas and took turns posing and shooting a few models before we made our way into a cemetery for the remainder of the shoot.
