Corsets by Pola Castillo
This is probably my favourite shoot so far. I had so much fun with the make-up, even if symmetry was a bit of a problem.
The corsets were awesome. Pola made them herself and took about an inch to inch and a half off my actual waistline and made me stand up straight for once in my life. My back did hurt for a couple of days after, but what is pain in the name of beauty hahaha!
And what I find particularly awesome about this shoot is that despite the heavy Mexican influence, these photos still have a very Filipino feel to them.
Because you know, I’m nationalistic like that.
