Strike a Pose! Winter Photoshoot for Papillon!

Hey cutie! How are you? Aah I’m so happy to finally be able to share this blog post with you! A few months ago me and my bestie Isobel went out to take some photos for the winter/holiday issue of Papillon. I absolutely ADORE these photos as we took these right at the beginning of my fuwa/moko phase… So you can kind of tell how excited I was to be all dressed up in cute and fluffy clothes! My only regret is that the wind/rain absolutely destroyed my curls, but since then I have mastered how to do it so I’m determined to take more photos next time.

There’s also a special feature with – wait for it – Black Diamond, yes, THE Black Diamond gyarusa! But before I ruin it all,  let’s take a peek to see what the first issue of Papillon has in store…
