    I like the fire look. Hard to find a bright who wants to burn her dress. Don´t know what i think about missing feet. Thats kinda strange…but could be a ghost ;-)

  3. Israeli Bride has Dress Set on Fire During Photoshoot

    […] think twice about it. If it were me, this would have been photoshopped. The similarity of this to Lauri’s latest tutorial is creepy, but it goes to show that you can get good results using Photoshop instead of real fire […]

    I think I like it without the legs.. gives it more of a ghostly feel.

    I like it but where are her legs?

      Without the legs, it’s just freaky enough to be interesting, with legs and feet, they would have to have been bones and bits of chard flesh… too gross… not bride type material ;-P
