Best Moments from the Photoshoot for L.A. Weekly's Best of Issue 2012 

7 of 61
L.A. Weekly's Best of Issue 2012, with the theme Dark Fairy Tales, took over two months and 60 crew people to prep, shoot and layout. We shot at The Flying Morgan's real life castle in Laurel Canyon, chained Aladdin (screenwriter Max Landis) up with golden chains and convinced actual mermaid Hannah to be our Little Mermaid. We painted people blue, bought over 800 roses, and had one heck of a great time making these dark wishes come true. Here are some of our favorite images from the Best of Issue.

    At Ladies Gunboat Society, the new operation out of the restaurant that used to be Flores on Sawtelle Boulevard, the Hoppin’ John is served as an appetizer or a small plate rather than a side, and the price is the stuff of comedy.
