The last of Mandy Altimus Pond's fairytales, Sleeping Beauty, will be conducting a group photoshoot on February 23. These photographs will be featured in an exhibit at Translations Art Gallery in downtown Canton, Ohio in June 2014.

List of scenes:

Time commitment:
• Sunday, February 23 from 1-3pm
• The Arcade, 401 Euclid Avenue, Cleveland, Ohio 44114.
If you are interested, please email me at with your name, email address, phone number, and if you have a costume.

The photos from this shoot have a guaranteed exhibit at Translations Art Gallery, Canton, Ohio in June 2014 as part of the one-woman photography show featuring Mandy Altimus Pond’s photographs from Snow White, Cinderella, and Sleeping Beauty.

Makeup and hair assistance will be available. To see ideas for this photoshoot, please visit Altimus Pond's Sleeping Beauty Pinterest board.

We are opening up a casting call for Sleeping Beauty photoshoot in the style of steampunk. If you already have a costume, WE WANT YOU! It is a non-paying gig, but payment comes in getting your photo taken on set (which will be some awesome locations), which you may then keep/download/print. This photoshoot already has a guaranteed exhibit in Canton, Ohio in June 2014.

Time commitment: late January-early February 2014 in NORTHEAST OHIO. We will work to fit the best schedule for our principle actors. My guess is about 2-3 days of shooting, nights/weekends.

If you are interested, please message me or email me ( with your name, email address, phone number, and if you have a costume.

If anyone is interested, the Ohio Historical Society is hosting Dickens of a Christmas, with 1860s games, costumes, music, and entertainment in the village. I'm volunteering there next weekend, if anyone would like to come! I believe that it is $10 to get in, unless you're a senior or have a student ID.
