The Mad Max trilogy, created by George Miller, captured the hearts of millions of people through the 30 or so years since is was made. In a post apocalyptic world of barron wasteland, Mad Max roams the roads in search of justice and juice. Fuel, that is. In 2015, a new Mad Max movie (from the original creator) will blast back into the limelight… 19 years after the third movie, “Beyond Thunderdome.”
The new movie seems to capture much of the original Mad Max mystique- tattered and elaborate fashions of the world’s end appearing in many forms. Masks, headdresses, deconstructed armor, leather, leather, and more leather. Explosions of epic proportions, crashes all of all types, super angry scary looking villains. The trailer is pretty fantastic…
Some throwback thursday action… Before the motolady website, I spent most of my days working on photoshoots doing makeup, styling, and art direction. This is one of my favorite photoshoots, starring my first motorcycle… a 1980 Yamaha XJ Maxim 650. Heavily inspired by Mad Max, I outfitted model Skye Velten in armor, furs, and faux-leather.
With my Honda Civic chase car behind me, piloted by photographer Ben Reed, I rode about 100 miles out into the hills of Eastern Oregon so we could really set the post apocalyptic mood.
She’s meanness set to music and the bitch is born to run!
