Sedona Olde Time Photos is constantly adding costumes and props to give customers more choices during their photo sessions. Recently, we have added a couple of Victorian dresses, including a dress with a bustle. To keep it simple and allow the dress to fit many sizes, the skirt and the bodice are split in the back, so they can be tied on, like most of our costumes. The bustle attaches with Velcro to complete the look.

The bustle dress replaced hoop skirts, because they were more practical. Prior to the introduction of bustles, hoop skirts had changed from the full bell shaped skirts to an ellipsoidal shape, where the sides were narrower.

Filmed In Sedona

It is hard to pin down exactly how many movies, television shows and commercials were filmed in Sedona, as different sources vary. However, it appears that about 100 movies have filmed in the beautiful red rocks of Sedona. Some of these movies were filmed entirely in Sedona, some were shot in Sedona and surround areas, and some only filmed a few key scenes in Sedona.

Up, Up and Away

Have you ever wanted to take a ride in a hot air balloon? The owners of Sedona Olde Time Photos recently went on a ride with Red Rock Balloons and it was wonderful. The ride started with a van ride to the launch site. Then a well-organized crew proceeded to pull the basket out of the trailer and attach the balloon. Then they stretched the balloon out and filled it with air. This happened fairly quickly and the process was interesting to watch.

Doc Phineas

Dawn and Randy Gould, owners of Sedona Olde Time Photos, had the pleasure of meeting Doc Phineas (AKA Kenneth Kastler) at the last two Antique and Amusement Photographers International (AAPI) conventions. Doc Phineas is an authority on all things steampunk and has shared information about the costumes and props that are associated with steampunk fashion. He also described tea dueling, which is the art of dunking a tea biscuit into a cup of tea for five seconds and then slowly and cleaning, without dripping or losing pieces of the biscuit, biting off the moist biscuit and doing so after your opponent.

Doc Phineas calls himself a Gentleman Extraordinaire.
