*August 13, 2015: Set this post to private previously because of “reasons”.
It’s the 21st century and without a doubt, many of us could not escape from selcas (aka selfies). Personally, I’m not much of a selfie person. In fact, I’m not much of a camera person. However, I do love arts and dress up pretty. And so, I decided to start my very own selca project. The purposes of this particular selca project are as follows:
1) To capture my youth so that I can look back at it when I’m eighty-years-old
2) To get rid of my “once-in-a-while” acting bug
3) To fool around with my Photoshop skills
4) To express my appreciation for the East-Asian dresses of the past (Cheongsam and Hanbok)
5) To brainwash people into thinking that selca is a true art form (lol joking here)
Now, without further ado, go ahead and laugh. This is my very own selca project:
I forgot to adjust the setting of my camera, so the quality is not very good. Thus, this is the beginning of the photoshop madness. And yes, I was playing my ukulele while dressed up pretty in a Hanbok. ^^
Hanbok and guitar. I’m using my guitar like a sword.
The Hanbok is so pretty ^^
Here, I’m trying to imitate the number one pose of almost every South Korean idol when dressed in a Hanbok.
I wonder what my eighty years old self would think. O__o
Lol, finally a normal picture. XD
This is a pose that I copied from one of my favourite paintings.
And so, the journey of Cheongsam (aka Qipao) begins in the make-up room…like all the big named stars of those days.
One pose I have learned from watching too much TV and movies.
A full-size pose — imitating the past starlets.
Now, I start to get the fun about cosplay.
And that’s the end of my selca project! =D No more Photoshop madness starting with this one. The above image for comparison!
Now, this is a selca of the proper standards.
