Photographer Thymehadder Photography had this to say about this photo shoot…
“I have been a Scooby Doo fan for as long as I can remember and have had a nerd crush on Velma for just as long. So imagine my complete excitement when Ms. Jennifer Ravensong decided to help me fulfill my dream of doing a Velma Shoot. While a seemingly simple cosplay, it did take quite a lot of effort to put it together. From dying the top and socks, and making the skirt out of another dress, it became more of a build then just putting things together. But in the end, I think the whole thing came out beautiful.”
