Caption: A few people have asked why you can see a patch of her real skin color up towards her hairline. This is how traditional geisha make-up is supposed to look. Some natural skin shows to give the impression of a mask.
Location: thank you to Tanya Dakin for the lovely kimono & Jeff at ImproArt for lending me his space & lighting expertise!

I'm totally in love with this one, love the position and the way she looks at some point we don't really see, it gives to the image a sense of...I don't know, movement.
