This cover was loosely inspired by the Goosebumps series. My PS skills are a bit rusty or I would've tried to do a little more, but decided to do too little than too much.

My new neighbour has a lovely 14-yr-old daughter who is half Turkish. Her natural gypsy looks weren't going to go to waste with me around! We went shopping for the biggest, chunkiest costume jewellery we could find :-)

I had her carefully toss the orb - actually a small Japanese fishing float - but as at one point I also asked her to wear finger LEDs, catching it became a bit tricky! So I ended up making a small darkbox in which to shoot the orb on a small pedestal made of a black-painted shot glass, with a green LED in the bottom.

The horse in the orb is a Morgan mare whom I actually shot on the 14th, so just got in under the wire with her there. The glowing effect was easy to get by just using multiple copies of the orb at different opacities.
