I have discovered my super powers!!!!

When I help style or style in photoshoots I can turn the bohemes, hipsters, and girls with other styles in to someone looking like a goth or a rock star. Take the usually cheery and happy looking Krissy and Ericka in this for example. :P

Haha! Anyway…

I helped style a fun shoot with Tricia, Patricia and Ais last Thursday after work. 

Helping out in shoots and doing fun shoots like this is helping me in many ways. I get to learn new things you could only learn via experience, get new insights, learn to socialize (very important, because no one likes to work with nega monster snobs) be inspired and meet new people.

Patricia is so beautiful! And Ais is a wonderful make up artist as well.

A really quick shoot done with really amazing girls yesterday! I finally met the beautiful, cute and talented girls named Krissy and Ericka! They can model very well and sing and write songs! What talented ladies! Do check out their youtube account : http://www.youtube.com/user/krissysings

I met Tracy too, whose face is familiar to me because we got common friends haha! Meeting new people is always good. :)

Anyway this is partly inspired by Snow White and the Hunstman! The Queen’s wardrobe is something I wish I had, haha!

After this shoot I had to go back to work. The one that I don’t like :<

I wonder when I can go full time with my clothes? Hmpf!

I don’t consider myself a brilliant person, but I am a lucky soul because I meet brilliant people in my life. 

One of them is my sister-in-law. 

Kidding. Not soon. Not until my partner and I have a steady looking future.

Though we are of the same age there are a lot of things Tricia has taught me. I’m a self learned person who does not have any idea how this industry goes. It’s not by apprenticeship that I learned from her, but it’s more of by doing things with her and observing that I picked up a few things I would not have realized by myself.

I’m starting all over again and this time I think I finally am at the right direction.  I plan to continue upwards, forward. And make more clothes that would make beautiful photographs and clothes that would be worn by worthy women. 

For myself and for those who believed in me. I will reach for my dreams :)

Oh, flowers and regrets.

The headress here is one of my earlier works. The petals were cut individually by hand.

It was also used in this photo:

This headress was made about a year ago. Or two years, I don’t really remember.

When I look at my older works, I can’t help but think that almost all of it is ugly. That everything is not good enough. I want to delete everything and start all over. The photos these people took proves it otherwise though, so maybe it’s just me.

I read somewhere that contentment leads to complacency. I never feel that anything I make is good enough. It’s good, because it makes me strive to be better but I think I can be too hard on myself. 

Maybe I really am a masochist.
