Day 2 – Philipsburg Montana Opera House

The Philipsburg Opera House in Philipsburg Montana graciously allowed us to photograph some of our “A Steampunk Guide to Hunting Monsters” photos in their beautiful Historic Building today!

The delightful summer stock theater just ended its season. The theater is known for its many Victorian backdrops, hand painted by artist Edgar S. Paxson. Take a look at outtakes from this shoot!

We went through 12 costume changes! Jeremy and Brin were styled by Lizzie, and Catey came to help organize costumes and dress models!

We worked all day long with only occasional breaks for candy and soda from Philipsburg’s famous shops!
