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. 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.
Here me and photographer Mika:
