Do you have a dream travel destination? I do really have. All the time here on my blog I pay attention that I want to travel to the USA, take a car, drive through states, stop in motels, see different interesting places and just feel the freedom of the road – and I hope that this dream will come true very soon. But besides my love to the USA and Europe, mainly to France and the UK, my heart always wanted to see Asia, especially Japan and China.
I think that the first time I decided to visit Asia was when I was doing all the cosplay things (well, I guess cosplay was a turning point in my life, since I talk about it here quite often :)). At those times Japan and Chine were something unreal and mysterious – and actually nothing changed. I always wanted to take a walk down the small narrow streets of old town, eat street food, smell the scent of fry delights mixed with a warm scent of incense, and after that visit the modern districts full of people where the abundance of neon lights and holographic banners create the impression of the city of future. All of these really attract me, and I guess due to my thoughts about visiting Asia I decided to imagine myself just right there. And this is how this photoshoot was created.
Today we are in China, exactly in the famous China Town just in the center of a busy market square with a lot of small snack bars with street food menus, souvenirs and the secret rooms in which tourists are forbidden to entry. And in order for the locals took me for the one of their kind, I needed to change my appearance: beautiful ginger curly hair was cutted off and painted in bright red, then got rid of my normal clothes and now I wear only those garments that have details of a chinese traditional costume hanfu, and what is more, for the first time I decided to keep aside in order to find what is going on here. As a result of my little story I started receiving messages from my friends who wondered, when I come back from China, what I am doing there and why exactly China. And the answer is: because I always wanted to go there and I come back only when visit Japan, so just take a sit and wait – soon I will post photos right from this country.
