Beware of Sharp Edges by yayacosplay Beware of Sharp Edges by yayacosplay

Photo by Benny Lee :iconsekainoichitaka:

Model: Me

Outfit by Lip Service

Hair/makeup/styling: Me

I hosted a Lip Service fashion show over New Year's and had the opportunity to get a couple of outfits. I mainly wanted them for clubbing (love going to the Castle in Tampa) but when Benny Lee and I talked about doing a first photoshoot together, I decided to pull out this ensemble for a fun Cyber Samurai chick look. It was an excuse to play with kabuki-inspired makeup.

Once again a beauty that may even rival Izanami's, but with the elegant deadliness of a kunoichi. I definately have a deep attraction and fondness of you now.

Awesome picture!! It makes me think of what might happen if Kasumi from the DOA series of video games, and Amelia Arsenic from Angelspit had a baby, lol. But, you have proven it would be a beautiful baby! Thanks for sharing! ^^

Sharp edges are why I have no nose, ears, fingers or toes. :D J/K - but you are beautiful, and that's not a joke. :)

your makeup is really skillfully done =D

more characters need to be focussed on when it comes to things like makeup, it just adds to the character. For instance, Trying to search for characters in games with piercings will give you a net total of zero actual in-game shots. Too many characters are sold on simple sex appeal, which is frankly disappointing to people in the profession. Still, it makes money so I can hardly blame the makers.

Anyway, I'm rambling. Great picture and you look great too. =D
