It was fun to create these fantasy worlds for her to inhabit - fairy princess, cowgirl, bride. Sort of like a living storybook (with an edge, of course). In particular I remember we had a great time going to Western Costume in Burbank to find just the right outfits for the shoot. That place is incredible - acres and acres of costumes from just about every movie you can think of, some with the labels of the movie stars who wore them sewn inside (many were worn by extras, of course), and you can just rent them!
By the way, we also rented those frogs - including some very exotic and expensive ones - and halfway through the shoot a PA noticed that one of the frogs was missing. A closer look revealed that the legs of the smaller one were sticking out of the mouth of the larger one. The rest of him had been swallowed. I somehow managed to pull the little guy out and he survived. Lesson learned: never put two strange frogs together in the same tank!
