"The basis for the inspiration lies in the Gothic church towers and nature decons hard metal structures in contrast to the fragile tip, which visualizes wedding romance and kyrkfönsternas dramatic natural light. In cooperation with Kerstin Larsson f15"
Maiko Henshin japanese girl at Sannen-zaka street, Kyoto, Japan by Alex Saurel on Flickr. || edit
That style of make-up is worn by geisha and maiko, it is usually called shiro-nuri (white lacquer) or o-shiroi (which is the name of the white face powder). It is worn by people other then maiko and geisha. For instance, anyone who studies Japanese dance and has dance recitals will probably wear it once or twice a year. It is also associated with Kabuki Theater, where it actually originated, but nonetheless it is heavily associated with geisha. The woman in this picture is a maiko-henshin, someone who has paid to be dressed as a maiko, but she is a really good maiko-henshin!
This photo caused so much controversy when I posted it on Instagram, I was called a slut by people that didn’t even know me, and it’s really funny because in this photo I am relaxing TOPLESS at the BEACH next to my BOYFRIEND of THREE years. My body is mine, and I’m so fucking proud of it. You will not stop me by reporting my photos.
