Where to find....

Where do I find a senior portrait drape? I am from up north and we don't use them! lol. I moved to VA, and now I am being asked if I have one for senior portraits, looked on my old faithful ebay, and found NOTHING. Is it just fabric? or is there an actual drape that can be bought?

I think the ones you buy are muslin. They are just fabric though.

Denny carries them, as does Backdrop Outlet

It's usually a simple velvet wrap, sometimes gathered in the front, fastened in the back, so all the girls can same the same modestly plunging neckline.

There's another variety which wraps from the back, with little pockets for the girls to put their hand in and hold the drape crossed across their chest, if you can imagine that, which can lead to some rather embarrasing sessions, if you get my drift.

I've also seen them in mink and rabbit, some with an attached feather boa, but that's just toooo retro.

Next, of course, you'll need the velcro-up-the-back tux.
