Do you ever get an idea and just have to make it happen? This is one of those situations. A longtime friend, Deborah Larcom reached out to me after she saw me on my Hell’s kitchen appearance. Deborah half joking but more seriously said “Seth you look just like fester from the Addams family!”. I thought about it and remembered the times when I was a kid, I loved watching the Addams family! Fester was really my favorite character, he always did something silly goofy and just downright gross to do. So, I figured why not I could be Fester!
To accomplish anything great takes a talented team! That is when I decided to call Feralene. Feralene is a super talented makeup artist! Not only does she do the beautiful glamor looks but she also knows how to create characters like Fester. Ferelene can make you look pretty much like anyone. After Ferelene agreed to jump onboard this exciting project I called the talented Shane O’Neill. Shane is a longtime friend. He was one of the first guys I met out here in Las Vegas and we’ve been friends ever since. I’ve watched him grow as a person and his career take off in so many amazing directions. Shane is a true artist, and he knows how to capture a moment like most people don’t even understand. I have done countless photo sessions with Shane and look forward to doing more. I knew the Addams family would be something Shane would enjoy, as he has a creative talent and love for movies especially something as iconic as The Adams Family.
We started off the day with makeup! Trevor Larcom came over and It was great to connect with him. Trevor is a superstar and is best known for his 70 plus appearances on the hit TV show “Fresh off the boat” he played Trent. Trevor has been on all kinds of TV shows and movies, is an outstanding actor and a lot of fun to be around. Trevor got right into becoming Pugsley and we started eating Festers frog legs.
When I have an idea, I must get it done. There is no better way to accomplish something then just doing it. It sounds like a quote from a motivational speaker but truthfully that is how I achieve everything I want. A famous producer once told me the only thing that will ever hold you back is you! She was 100% correct. If you have a goal, idea or concept that needs to be accomplished go out and do it. If you fail of don’t quiet reach your goal, try again and again until you succeed!
We accomplished the Addams family photo shoot; it was a crazy day we had some fun and laughs! We created some fun images not to mention a cool video. I’m laying it out here all for you to see if you enjoy it say something give me an idea of what you liked to let us know that you’re watching. We love your feedback and want to connect with you.
This is a story of how to get things done. I do not profess to be the best or the smartest, I just know how to accomplish things and get my goals done. I start off with an idea and that idea festers into something bigger than me. We joined forces with fairly the makeup artist Shane O’Neil the talented photographer and of course Trevor Larcom the actor.
Special thanks to Kevin James for the Thing spooky hand gimmick.
