Preparing for a VALAK (DEMON NUN) Photoshoot
Valak Photo Shoot

Become the evil nun Valak, from the Conjuring.

One of the scariest iconic characters from the modern era of horror, this epic portrait shoot will truly give you nightmares.

About this shoot

• In this dramatic photoshoot, you will be photographed as the evil nun Valak complete with costume habit, ghostly make-up, and grisly teeth.

• You will be directed by the photographer into poses which will feature some fake blood.

Maximum x2 people. A solo shoot will feature you as Valak and is the most common option. A two-person shoot will feature the second person as Ed or Lorraine Warren, to be a victim.

Things you need to bring

You will not need to bring anything unless you want to. We will provide the nun's habit, crucifix, and make-up. However if you have your own costume and would like to use it then you are welcome to. If you bring a second person to be a victim then they will need either suitable 1970's era clothing or casual modern clothing that they don't mind having covered in blood.

Damage to clothes: Please keep in mind that whatever clothes or costume you bring may suffer damage or be utterly ruined by the end of the shoot. We us a lot of fake blood at Horrify Me!

Props: Feel free to bring any appropriate props if you have any that you would like to use (optional).

Eyes: You may bring your own eye contacts for scary eye effects if you want to (optional). We don't supply contacts.

• Please bring a towel for clean-up at the end.

The makeup process

Horrify Me supplies all the horror makeup and fake blood.

• The makeup process is thorough and comprehensive. The Valak makeup is mostly face paint but we also fit you with some large horrific teeth.

• Every makeup is different and unique to you! We don't re-use the same pieces on people, instead we create each makeup completely bespoke to suit your own face on the day, so your Valak portrait will be as individual as you.

The shoot

• You will be guided throughout the shoot and instructed how to pose.

• All the makeup and fake blood is completely safe. The blood is sugar-based and fully edible allowing for plenty of drooling.

Clean up

• At the end of the shoot you can clean up. Everything is harmless but certain parts might pull on your skin like a sticking plaster, or leave small traces of skin glue behind which will need to be washed off.

• You will be able to wash in the studio. Everything comes off pretty easily and you will be able to go home in fairly clean condition, although you might need a shower when you get home.
