When I learned of shironuri style, I had been quite intrigued by it, since it offered such a playful new world to explore. I was already quite used to putting on a white-faced sort of makeup thanks to my adventures dressing up like maiko before. And after seeing all the amazing videos of Minori, and her photographs, it really made me want to try the style. She always looks so amazingly magical and otherworldly that I wanted to try to explore the style as creatively as I could as well.
This is my first foray into the style, which I wore to this year's annual ToyCon in the Manila. I'm very happy that it managed to pull through (it had quite a few problems and pratfalls in the preparatory stage). I know that I'm but a beginner in the style, but I'm looking forward to exploring it more and trying to be as creative as I could.
Much gratitude goes out to Takayuki Watanabe who did the photography and post-processing of this photo.
