Bite of an Apple – A Dark Snow White

This all came about because I didn’t even START this look until after dark last night. I knew that lighting would be a struggle and I needed something that would work in the semi-dark.

My inspiration was Snow White, having just taken a bite of the Wicked Queens apple, and becoming corrupted by its poison.
