Our host for Wasteland Weekend 2010 has just been announced. Terra Morta will helping us make this a post-apocalyptic party to remember.
For our first photo shoot, we decided to put together a sort of tribute to Virginia Hey's Australian Playboy cover. We didn't have the time to put together a full screen-accurate Warrior Woman costume, and the one from the Playboy cover is sexier anyway. We combined that raggedy outfit with a set of white Rawlings shoulderpads (as a nod to the outfit she actually wears in the movie) and subbed a crossbow for the compound bow (We figured that was okay since she does use crossbows in the rig scene).
You can see the results:

We also took some shots of her as a female Mad Max (only with a few strategic pieces of the outfit missing...) but you'll have to wait a bit longer to see those. Lots more pictures coming from this photo session and another one we have coming this week.
Here are Virginia's original Playboy shots, the cover and an interior photo (you'll see that our outfit was actually more inspired by the interior picture than the cover, since we've got the knife on the leg and not the arrow).
