Getting oldey timey in 1847

Getting oldey timey in 1847

I have this dream to be in a Western movie… maybe it’s because I have spent the last 10 years working in the right time period at the museums I teach and tour at. Maybe it’s because I started to ride horses when I was a kid and grew up to show horses in Hunter/Jumper class or Barrel Races. Maybe it’s because I have been fascinated with archery and single action lever rifles. Maybe it’s because I have always wanted to be a badass woman saving the day. Maybe it’s because I fell in love with Back to the Future part three or Deadwood tv series (because Calamity Jane played by Robin Weigert blew up my heart and mind!)

Whatever the reason, when my friend Ryan Fisher of Rainyfresh Photography wanted to do something other than weddings and I immediately suggest an old Western photoshoot where I could pay homage to the likes of Calamity Jane and badass ladies in general. 

The day before I hung out with my brother at the gun range as we both have our license and trained up on bolt action rifles and pistols, I have to be a markswoman if I’m going to duel at dawn in 1847! Turns out I’m a pretty good shot – look at that grouping and target hits below:

And a preview of what’s to come from the photoshoot: here is one of Ryan’s awesome photos of me in my full Calamity Adri costume get up!

Some behind the scenes at the authentic 1847 tavern at Montgomery’s Inn museum (with Ryan from Rainyfresh!)

I can’t wait to show you more! And if you have anywhere from $50k-1m dollars lying around I would be happy to use that to make my film 😉

Geek is as Geek does

It’s no secret I’m a huge geek. Nerd? There are times when I am both! Like in my latest photoshoot with Photos by Jo (and make-up by Coral who wanted me to really dive into my geek branding as I’m now hosting Geektropolis and of course I said “Affirmative. Engage.” and quickly had a panic attack about which shirt to wear – I have SO MANY geeky t-shirts!

Here’s my Brady Bunch set: Adrianna Prosser in geeky T shirts ona grid

And the best Captain America I can do without fully cosplaying it in camos:

1940’s Bomb Girl

My friend Chelsea Merkel asked if I would pose for her portfolio as she is just about to graduate from a Special Effects program. No I didn’t get horns or a tail, though that would have been fun (sidebar I’m seeing Maleficent tonight…) but I had the pleasure of looking tough in an old school way: as a 1940’s Bomb Girl.

Take a look at what made it into her portfolio:
