The Abandoned: Witch in Captivity

This past Saturday’s shoot in Intramuros was very overwhelming. My role was great—I played the role of a witch in captivity which explains the heavy make-up and the weird poses (I had to reiterate for some people to understand and not judge). However, other characters surfaced. I became an engkanto, an evil puppeteer, and in this one above, I looked like a damsel in distress drained by a blood sucker sans the vampire bite (channeling Mina Harker). At least though, these characters did not deviate from the “wickedness” Nathan Lubian, the organizer and the master of it all, had envisioned. Kudos to everyone for a job well done!

What I'm seeing is a mermaid (sans the large fin) casted under a black spell and trapped in a cavern of damnation for the immensity of the sins she has committed to the sea gods.

I love it. It's so underworldly.

Wow, you are hella right. I never thought of that. I guess the moldy stairs of Intramuros contributed to that plus the foggy effect made by the photographer. :)
