Black Swan by shadowfriend
Black Swan
The black swan who was not evil, she was hurt and filled with sadness but still had a will to let go of everything that was dear to her.


This particular work is oldish - summer time, but it is a very special one for me, that might be a reason for some exciting things! Because surprisingly enough the photographer of the original image after seeing this work actually contacted me through a friend of mine. This, after talking to him through her, somehow turned out to be a mutual admiration of each others work and to me, it's the first recognition from a profesional!
The young lady in this is a talent with an angel's voice - Alan Dawa Dolma, a singer (songwriter), trained in opera singing, who made herself a name in Japan's pop music world. She was taken under the wing of one of the main record companies of the country and had a rather succesful career. She's increadibly beautiful outside and inside and a very humble person. I adore her and her music. And i suggest anyone to go and check her out if you are not bothered by a different language. The etherial sounds and her increadible vocals are worth a try! Trust me!
The photographer, Zhou Wei,  is a very talented man at least in my eyes. The time when i saw the pics he did with her i was speachless, they were perfect to me, that i didn't even wanted to touch them, but i still went for it cuz i loved the styling on Alan and wanted to turn her into something from a dark fairytale - the aura that the pictures gave.

So, this whole odd encounter that in other case could have ended me with some serious troble, ended up in an oposite. If everything goes as said, it could be a start of some amazing experience. For what i also have to be very thankful to a friend who is a supportive fan of the lady as well and made this happen, just by sharing the works of us, few, fans.

I'm just an ordinary girl, having huge dreams. Crazy about everything Japan. :) and creating weird apparel once in a while....

I do lots of things: photograph, make acessories, clothes, nail art, traditional drawings and painting, fashion illustration, photomanipulations etc.

Favourite genre of music: j-rock/pop
Favourite style of art: painting, drawing, photography
i dunno how many of you can actually see this but i just wanted to say that even tho i'm kinda sad to go for it I am 90% sure i am going to sell off most of the fake nails I have ever posted here and some i hadn't i'm probably going to give up 99% of sets. I think only "RAINBOW", "ANGEL'S polka dot SONG" and "Leather Glam" is going to stay with me.... I'm most probably going to launch a temporary website to put all the sets on with info on size and prices etc.

I did get some people asking if i sell a set or other...And um i wanted to know if there's someone else interested.

Just a note tho, the nails are hand-decorated,  with regular nail polishes and paint, they are not acrylics and even tho i do use top coats every time, i can not say they are resistant to everything. They are deffinitelly not for an everyday wear, and if using i don't think glue is a good choice either because i have no idea if they wouldn't get ruined removing them, I myself used nail stickers, they hold absolutelly well and can probably be removed easily from the nails as well from the inside of fakie .
I am not a pro and they are not perfect (especially when talking about painting things on them) but i do put lots of work and time into them, they are deffinitelly the result of sincear enjoyment and fun :)

I think they should work for those who do photoshooting of cosplay or just like dressing up for camera. They can easilly spice up the whole image of the style a person is sporting and would make it "dressed up from head to NAILS"lol .

So let me know if anyone is interested.
