The Incredible Kyla Nicolle – Anime Body Painting

The latest in my series of body painting shoot was based on an Anime concept by Angela O’Neill Whiteley of Angie’s Breathing Canvas.

Angela spent nearly 7 hours painting the outfit and the detail is absolutely incredible. I still feel bad for poor Kyla as the heat conked out and she stood there for the whole time freezing her butt off. I tried wiring up a couple of electric heaters but they just didn’t cut-it. Kyla was an absolute trooper and never uttered a single complaint.

I was amazed at the details of the Nova Scotia tartan pattern in the skirt as well as the really “cheeky” peekaboo frilly undies.

Sadly, just as the painting finished, the heat kicked back in and the studio warmed up just in time for everyone to go home. 🙁

Kyla is incredible. She has some real potential in the modelling world, not Halifax, the modelling world. She has a plan, an incredible work ethic which is so rare with young people today and is willing to do whatever it takes to get the shot. I absolutely loved working with her and I’m pretty sure that one of these days I’ll be able to say, “I knew her before she was famous.” Seriously.

Now for the samples. 😉
