I don’t know about you, but I’m feeling 22~

Late birthday post, AAAAAAAHHHH!!! Ever since my birthday, my brain’s been on vacation mode and I haven’t been able to focus enough to consistently update any of my blogs/pages. OTL

I spent my birthday with my boyfriend and my parents, which pretty much just equated to FOOD. FOOD EVERYWHERE. I feel like I actually gained weight (like 5 pounds) on my birthday alone. HAHAHAHA

I also didn’t think that my parents would take me seriously when I said that I wanted one of those old-school cakes with the decoration in the icing, with all the sugary candy things on the border and Disney characters standing on it and everything. But apparently, they did, and it was fun having the cake (I ate most of it, too. Just not in one sitting) and I really appreciated that my parents made the effort to get me something fun, too. XD

And of course, I have to display my “make all the stupid faces and ruin the pictures” talent. :D

HOW DO YOU VALENTINE’S?!
This is the first shot I’m releasing from last Saturday’s shoot! I am sooooo gorgeous here. XD Here’s the Valentine’s greeting I did last 2012. I regret not doing a new one last year. :(
So yeah, it’s the day of love. Not the day exclusively for couples, but for people you love. Though I believe we should be showing our loved ones that we love them all year round, we can probably afford to go the extra mile today. <3
Whether you’re spending Valentine’s with your significant other, your brothers and sisters, your best friends, your grandparents, your parents, your dog, your neighbor’s dog(!), I hope you have a good one. :)

The Importance of Angles
A couple of months ago, I received this gem in my Facebook inbox. She was pretty much accusing me of Photoshopping myself to look skinny in my pictures, which I don&#8217;t do. I tried to explain that it was all about angles and lighting, and that I&#8217;ve studied how to make myself look better in pictures, but she wasn&#8217;t buying it. She also blocked me, because I was totally the one at fault here. HAHAHAHAHA
The picture on the left was taken because my friend Bryan insisted that I show him a picture to prove that I&#8217;ve gained weight. He no longer wants to be friends with me because I&#8217;m apparently scary that way. XD Picture on the right for reference, taken a few minutes after my &#8220;fat&#8221; photo just to make sure he doesn&#8217;t really believe I&#8217;ve gained that much weight. :P
I think I should take a couple of ugly shots during every photoshoot. Whaddya think?

I have&#8230; &#8220;cat moments&#8221;
I am easily distracted, usually by shiny things. Or cake. Yep.
This is another shot from the Colors shoot I had with David a couple of months ago. There are several more &#8220;cat moment&#8221; shots - and plenty of ugly faces I made - from this set, but I&#8217;ll stop at one. I don&#8217;t think the world is ready to see a full compilation of all my awkweird faces yet. XD

Behind the Scenes: Curiouser and Curiouser

image

I got to shoot with Mark U. of Coffeebugg Photography back in July! I loved getting to shoot in lolita again, I didn’t think I’d missed it this much. Mark was pretty game for my silliness and derpy poses, so I think we got along pretty well. XD

image

There’s Mark, explaining the effect he wants to his photography assistant. I was just derping around. Kinda glad the straps were kinda covered by the wig, I hadn’t noticed that they were a bit lopsided. D:

image

This is the first time I’ve shot with a lighting setup that was constantly being moved. And this would be the nth time that Mark has accidentally had the flash pop while he was looking right at the bulb. XD

image

And here I am, channeling my inner Disney Princess. Couldn’t help it, that ladder was too perfect for my Belle moment!

image

Mark and his assistant were setting up stuff so that we could shoot in that part of the warehouse. It was actually pretty fun being in a dusty storeroom, but I did have to remember that my dress was still dominantly white. D:

image

Then Mark let me fool around with his TLR! <3 Look at that stupidhappy face! Been wanting to collect all sorts of cameras, but I haven’t had the chance to start yet. :(

image

I am still genuinely surprised when people express interest in having me as their model. I dance a lot, I prance all over the place, and a lot of the time I make these unexplainable faces. XD but then again, as long as the shots come out well, I don’t think any of us are complaining!

Colors, BAM!
Lately I&#8217;ve been going with more neutral stuff when it comes to wigs and clothes. Sometimes I&#8217;m just too lazy to coordinate something more interesting. XD I believe this might be my most recent &#8220;colorful&#8221; outfit, which I came up with for my friend&#8217;s photography finals shoot. He said the theme was colors, so I gave him colors. O u O
And yes, I do enjoy making silly faces during shoots. Sometimes those shots are even better than the &#8220;srs bznz&#8221; stuff. Besides, who could resist goofing off when they&#8217;re shooting with their best friend?
