Melodie Gore.....Character Fiction. ! I AM BACK IN LA FULL TIME!!!!
I am a visual artist, burlesque performer and model based in Los Angeles CA, though my experience and network spans New York, Japan, Mexico and Canada. My professional work focuses on creating fantasy characters mainly through costume and makeup. I am heavily influenced by Japanese and American traditional and pop culture.
I have a Journeyman's degree from the Make-Up Designory in Burbank, CA and I've attended school at the Art Institute of Philadelphia and Savannah College of Art and Design.
I am also a paramedic.
My portfolio consists of collaborations with many close friends. I prepare most the shoots myself, and provide all hair, make-up and clothing unless otherwise noted.
I CURRETLY ONLY SHOOT PAID ASSIGNMENTS. I WILL CONSIDER SELECT TFP WITH PHOTOGRAPHERS THAT UNDERSTAND THE DIRECTION IM TAKING MY ART AND CAN COLLABORATE ON IDEAS BRINGING COMIC BOOKS, ANIME, VIDEO GAMES AND GORE TO LIFE.
