Santa Muerte photoshoot

The memorial day of the living death is soon. I have always like the beauty and meaning of santa muerte. Someone maybe connect it with calavera or sugar skull.  >Nuestra Señora de la Santa Muerte or, colloquially, Santa Muerte

(Spanish for Holy Death or Sacred Death), is a female folk saint venerated primarily in Mexico and the Southwestern United States. A personification of death, she is associated with healing, protection, and safe delivery to the afterlife by her devotees.[1] Despite opposition by the Catholic Church, her cult arose from popular Mexican folk belief, a syncretism between indigenousMesoamerican and Spanish Catholic beliefs and practices.

I contact photographer Mika Nurmi who knows well my style and understand what kind of atmosphere I wished for shots.

First I started to plan colours and my costume, make crafts and find clothing.  At studio Mika also have one costume. I wear it with my corset and there it was, another version.
