Goth Necklace Glitter Tattoo Hoop Dancer Acrobat Burlesque Performer

April 2010

Symone of had a goth/ victorian black beaded choker she had worn at another event I decorated her for. I loved it and said I HAD to paint or glitter her to match it!

So we set up a shoot with photographer Boris Mak.

Sadly, the intricate dots (getting them more or less symmetrical, then shading each glue ‘dot’ with up to 4 monochrome glitters) took so long that I only had time to do a chest-to-knickers section of the design I planned. I also used a new sort of breast cover I had found which ended up matching her skin perfectly.

Symone, of course, had AMAZING props to match from her day job (performing/ teaching aerial arts, pole dance etc). Check the shoes!! AND the METAL mask. Wow.

She then did a few impressively ‘casual’ looking poses on her aerial hoop…

Remind me of the ‘Roxanne’ section in Moulin Rouge or something, I think.

On a final note, its the LAST time I crouch/ straddle a model for several hours (I know Symone well, she didn’t mind!) to get symmetry on a torso – I couldn’t walk/ stand/ sit with ease for nearly a week! See, bodyart isn’t just a creative outlet its a fitness regime too!

Albert Yung of took a great video of most of the process. Symone looks like she’s chattering away insanely but all 3 of us were talking back, I promise!
