in my past life by suzi9mm in my past life by suzi9mm
...i killed people. just a suggestion, a very typical one. but i like the title for it leaves it open to interpretation. i myself am not sure what happened in her past life but it gives me a dreamy feeling to taste the sentence and stare at the photo.

but the photo, it's beautiful, even if i say so myself. when i pressed the shutter i gasped cos i felt like 'this is it!'. anyway, this photo wasn't planned, the shoot was set up for something else that you will see later. i experimented a little with backgrounds and different types of color schemes than i normally don't use, but i'm quite happy with it. i sincerely hope you like this one.


model is miss ^hesitation and her modelling skills and patience were more than valuable in this particular shoot.
Kimono made by Lissa Hill, sword from Dani and make up by meeeeee :)

The moment I saw her, I saw loss, pure grief on her face. As if it was her soul mate that used that sword, not her. And after his death, it is the only possession she has left of his, until she reaches her new life to be with him.
