I have never wanted to be tied up, I never thought much about it until this day. Shibari is an ancient Japanese art of rope bondage deriving from Hojo-jutsu martial art of restraining captives. And it is cool as hell.

Photographer Emma Wondra brought this concept to life. I adored creating the hard and soft juxtaposing make up looks for it. I played up the eyes using delicate flower petals and heavy black painting the fingertips and even splattering and dripping it. I was hands on all the while we were shooting, adding more and more and by the time we had the girls tied together, I had tried many things I had never done before. And that is always a good day.
