Imperfect Beauty

This one is for the freaks, darklings and misfits amongst us, and anyone who appreciates imperfection over perfect beauty ideals, a little darkness, grunge or grit in our glamour.  It is also an ode to the Japanese aesthetic of Wabi-Sabi:  the acceptance of transience and imperfection, beauty that is “imperfect, impermanent, and incomplete”.

This has been inspired by my nasty new angry looking scar after having stitches removed from my shoulder- leaving me with what looks like a bite mark from someone with really bad teeth…I kind of like scars, wierd teeth, peculiar features, granny style, skinny legs, models that look like aliens, anything that looks like it came from Wrongtown, and I’m guessing I am not alone:
