So I haven’t posted anything on here for ages, caue you guys probably already know how overchallenged I am with handling an instagram, tumblr and wordpress (Yes I know, I only post on instagram these days but still, let me whine) and let’s be real I dont spend a lot of time on the web, shocking I know right? Don’t get me wrong, I don’t have anything against it, for all I care, spend your time however you want to do it, I spend most of my time sleeping.

But since I am kind of a blogger/instagram influencer/guru/whatever the heck you want to call it, I decided to blog again and do a little wig review on here, since I don’t have a youtube channel.

So this beautiful wig is from EvaHair and is called the ‘Kylie Jenner inspired pastel blue synthetic lace front wig’, say this 3 times in a row and you lost 2 hours of your day, you’re welcome. Well it probably isn’t news to you, that social media people get some free stuff send to them to review those for their followers and this wig was sent to me by the company for said reasons, but however I do not get paid in any way (that also means no affiliate links ok), shape or form to present this wig.

As you can see in the pictures, the wig is pretty long, which means it gets tangled easily, but if your brush your wig in the right way, this won’t be any problem. (if you want me to do a post about how to care for your wig, write a comment or write me on instagram or send a pigeon). However I wouldn’t recommend this wig as a first wig, cause like I said the length is pretty hard to handle and not necessarily something for first time user. If you already are familiar with wigs, or you know how to cut them, then you won’t have any problem with this beauty.

What I really like about this wig are the roots. Wigs with natural colored roots automatically look more real (though it is still a pastel green, so natural for aliens not humans) and those roots fitted my hair perfectly and I was able to show my natural hairline and thus make this wig more believable and the colour is just a huge plus, cause let’s be real, pastel green hair is so amazing and I would have to bleach my hair to Mordor and back to get this colour.

The wig also comes with a wig cap and is has 3 sewed in combs and hooks for a perfect fit.

so my conclusion is: If you can handle long synthetic hair and are ok with a little shine, I would definitely recommend this baby  (though I am going to cut ist, I just don’t like having this long hair)


See you all soon (hopefully)

Editing Process

A lot of times you guys ask me how I edit my pictures, or if my pictures are edited and what software do I use to edit my pictures and are all my pictures edited. To make it short, I get a lot of question about editing and while I used to answer all these questions every single time I got one I thought why not make it short and easy and once and for all show an editing process of mine.

First of  all keep in mind that this is one of my heavier edited pictures. Not all of my pictures get a “makeover” like this one. But I do have fun doing it so whatever am I right?

  1. Date: Sep 9, 2016
  2. Camera: Canon EOS 5D Mark III
  3. Lens: Sigma 35 mm, 1.4
  4. ISO: 100
  5. Aperture: F/2.0
  6. Shutter Speed: 1/1600 second
  7. Editing Software: Adobe Photoshop CS5

The first pictures is the raw file out of camera (usually I don’t have such a good makeup and lighting day and I normally have to fix spots on the skin but this day went great for me).

Second one is the fixed raw file (I changed the green and yellow tones, sharpened the image, and darkened the lighter tones a little bit)

Third one is skin editing (I brought out the lighter tones in the skin and darkened the shadows, make the eyes pop a little more. All in all dodge and burn and a little frequency separation I think)

The last one is after adding colour to the image, or changing colour. Take it as you want. It’s easier if you know from the beginning which style the picture should have and if it’s supposed to work with other pictures in a series or stand alone. I brought a little desaturated feeling to the picture. Added teal Highlights, made the shadows less black and darkened the sky).

I hope this settles the question about my editing process. (And yes I wanted to keep that strand of hair there although it would have been quite easy for me to remove it. I just think it adds to the picture)

Oh hell no

Almost all of these pictures are as unedited as possible (though they are all raw files so I had to open them in ps and decrease the size as well), except for two which are pretty obvious I guess (the close up of my face in the green dress and the second one from the bottom which was changed to black and white), cause I couldn’t find the originals. They are in chronological order and I’m still pretty sure it’s a mistake to upload those images, but you asked for it and here we go. If they really are “ugly” is up to your choice, I just find them to be mostly unflattering (especially considering the pictures I usually upload) but also real because these are the faces I pull most of the times.

For an upcoming photography project in university I decided to photograph some (old) abandoned places. Though I’m not sure if I keep the pictures like this, here’s still a little preview of the places I explored until now (at least 4 more places to come).

The Road

After watching “The Road” this weekend I’m still so amazed in an awe by this movie (and of course the book as well, which I just bought and started reading). It’s been a while since I’ve last seen a movie which made me wonder about life so much like the road did and still does.

Honestly the plot and the cinematography of said movie are stunning and so cleverly portrayed that I just can’t –

(also Viggo Mortensen killed it in the end, I was so much in tears)

So here have one of my favorite quotes from the book and some pictures I shot in Rügen this summer:

“When we’re all gone at last then there’ll be nobody here but death and his days will be numbered too. He’ll be out in the road there with nothing to do and nobody to do it to. He’ll say: where did everybody go? And that’s how it will be. What’s wrong with that?” – Cormac McCarthy, The Road

It feels like it’s been forever since I last photographed with an analogue camera, so I took the chance, while visiting the beautiful island of Rügen, to snap a few pictures there.

It was around 9 or 10 pm when we were driving home to our apartment and I realized that all those meadows around us were covered in fog, but since we weren’t able to stop on the road, I had to take those pictures while driving in the car. – for someone with little to none real knowledge about the analogue camera I had with me, a real challenge.

But somehow I still managed to take some shots I really like (I know they are kind of dark but I am so going fo that look)!

Geeez. Hell it’s been a while since the last time I tried to draw with ink instead of watercolours and it might take some time until I try it again. I mean there are some pros and cons for using ink but the main reason for me to stick with watercolours is just that they’re so more forgiving than ink. If you make a mistake while using watercolours, you just need enough water and you can blend it out pretty much, but make a mistake with ink and you’re fucked.

Well for this specific portrait I had to work with ink for several reasons:

  1. I wanted to draw with a quill ( to get that exact look like in the movie,or at least similar)
  2. It’s exactly the colour I was looking for
  3. Ink is much darker, so I didn’t have to repeat some steps like I have to do when working with watercolours

(The ink I used is from ROHRER & KLINGNER and is called “burnt Sienna”)
