Yakuza bodypaint II by yayacosplay Yakuza bodypaint II by yayacosplay
*********** Yaya on Facebook [link] ***********

I was recently painted up by Master Body Painter Nick Wolfe [link] We've been friends for years but never had the chance to collaborate before now. Nick suggested something Asian inspired and I blurted out "Yakuza tattoo!" and the idea for this theme was born!

Nick did the painting in 4 and a half hours, using Diamond FX paint.
For those who don't take the time to read my Profile info, yes I am the model in these images.
I did the face makeup and hair, inspired by traditional Japanese Geisha, and modernized. I also bought traditional Japanese hair pins, and the over kimono was made by me, originally for my XXXHolic cosplay. I love being able to re-use costume parts haha. The full gallery for this shoot is here on my website: [link]

Photography by Brian Boling

First of all, well, first of all I don't know where to start. Lol. The expression on your face is enchanting. Your makeup, is top shelf. The whole dragon, so much detail. My compliments to the artist. And choosing this cosplay was a great idea, it really works well for your body. Incorporating your breast in the Dragon art, was genius.

Oh, and Yaya is just beautiful also. Keep doing this. Cheers.

My jaw just hit the floor. Hard. I knew you did cosplays, hell I keep track of all those, but when I saw THIS I felt this "woosh" as the breath left my lungs.

Let it be known that you have an amazing body first off. But more importantly, the art is so incredibly well done. To start out, the dragon is almost perfect in shape, I can't imagine it was easy to sit still while the paint was applied, It almost literally looks like it was tattooed onto you and in my honest opinion that is not an easy thing to do.

Seriously, well done.

I'm a contrast man. The colors coming off of this photograph pop off of the screen and make me adjust my eyes to take it all in! I think this s also the best pose and placement out of the Yakuza bodypaint set.

I don't know where to start. First let me say that you are lovely as usual, but the Dragon body paint is spectacular. The colors compliment you very well. I love the contrast of the red and black kimono,the lush green background and the bright blue Dragon. This photo contains three of my favorite photo subjects kimonos, fans and dragon tattoos; you are the perfect medium for all three. I've seen all three versions of this photo and all of them are alluring and beautiful. Of course the photographer should get some credit for this too as well as the body paint artist. LOL
