Do I look different in motion?

I filmed this one afternoon when I was relaxing. What do you call a video-selfie?

That was Miharu!

Hello! I am a Vancouver/Canada based fan that just want to let you know you are my girl crush :) you have an amazing modeling style that puts me in a serene mood every time. Though I tried my hardest, my drawing does not do justice on how beautiful you are. Just know that for every negative msg you get, there are 10 more fans backing you up!

Whoa! Cray cray! You are so talented! And sweet! And lovely!

What a kind gesture - thank you so so much for taking the time to reach out to me, let alone draw this beautiful picture! You have it backwards, sweetie - I do not do justice to it. 

I am sorry that I have not posted photos recently … but, I have a shoot coming up soon, so I should be able to be more active after that. Please let me know if there is anything else that I can do for you!

Award: first ever proclamation of girl-crush. I am telepathically sending you a hugggg from Seattle! Please take care!

Anonymous asked: Where do you get the courage to do such things... very disgraceful.. those meat.. *puke*


Answer:

Ha! I never knew that I was bringing shame upon anyone (or any thing, or any ideology) by posing for photographs in my underwear!

Perhaps my parents would be less-than-happy by my Tumblr, but I did not think that my selfies were so dishonorable. Ack!

Oh? Are you talking about the rolls of “meat” showing in some of my pictures? My, that is only my body! The one that almost perished when I was 20 years old! And the one that also long-boarded, kayaked, and horse-rode just this past weekend (pretty cool, huh)! I guess you think that my meat is pretty annoying … I do not like it when it gets sick, or when it gets so uncomfortable that it makes me snap at everything, either! Darn body.

Oh, I would clean up the puke before it crusts.

danedehaansmistress asked: dear Miharu, i really love your photos... i especially adore your bravery to show the world that you're not as skinny as like what the world wants to see. to be honest, i am also not thin and skinny, and my height is only 155cm. but i always shy with my body... how could your be confident with yours? i'd like to know the tips :))) thank you so much! xoxo


Answer:

Hey cutie-pie! I am sorry that it has taken me this long to respond. But, I am nonetheless flattered by your comments! Thank you for reaching out to me.

Ack. Would it be too obvious of me to say that, at a certain point, I just stopped looking at the things that made me feel bad about myself? Like, the fashion magazines in Japan that were peppered with skinny, celebrated “half” models showing off their long, Western-influenced legs paired with a cutesy expression that told us, yes, they were indeed still relatable to the Japanese race. Too many times did I also lament that I did not look like (or act like) most of the half-Japanese girls that were popular at my school (and who modeled on the side) … I mean, we were the same “breed”, right, so people categorized and compared me with them. Oh man, did it mess with my head! And still does today, to a lesser extent.

But memories aside, I think that what I am trying to say is: you should find something that you are good at (or a body-part that you love), and go with it! Sometimes it is easy to just feel jealous of people that seem to have it all … I sure do! But enriching oneself is, ultimately, what really counts … look at all the aging Hollywood actors who have messed up their health, faces, and bodies because they finally realized that they were rapidly losing what they were most admired for … their looks! So, the joke is kind of on them.

I am no zen-master who can preach about contentment and inner peace … But I do know that I feel sexiest when I am accomplished, happy, and just-showered … especially after a rough day!

So, maybe you are being harder on yourself than you actually deserve … smile … what makes you feel confident? Tell me tell me! I would love to celebrate you, cause you are beautiful!
