Hekate (a photo shoot)

Hekate (or Hecate) is the Greek goddess of witchcraft (among other things, cross-roads, and ghosts), so I thought she was the perfect doll to do a photoshoot for especially during this time of the year. The goddess, Hekate also appears in William Shakespeare's play, Macbeth (known to superstitious actors as The Scottish Play). But often times she is cut from the play and replaced with a normal witch.

I ended up making a doll of Hekate, however I'm not sure I'm done customizing this doll, given that Hekate is a triple goddess. So I may find a way to make her look a little bit more like the Greek goddess above in the future, but for now... 

On to the photoshoot!

I really like the way this photo turned out, especially with the blurred background behind her. 

The leaves have recently started falling from the trees, so I thought
they made the perfect backdrop. 

I like the angle of this photo. 

Which photo is your favorite? And do you have a favorite Greek god/goddess or line from Macbeth

Have a Happy Halloween!
