This series was basically some experimentation in graphic overlays and chemical burns. I hope you like the effect, I think it’s quite visceral in a way – I wanted it to look as if there was music in the air, or like the vision of an intoxicated clubber. Let me know if you like it, or think it’s too much. As usual you can find more of my photos on my FB page (here) and I’d be super grateful if you’d give them a like if you do! Also, what is everyone’s opinion on nipple tassels? Asking for a friend.

Gorgeous pictures! I felt like I transported back to the early 2000s following my unrequited love interest to various raves. I'm on the fence about nipple tassels. On one hand, I personally don't care for the look but, on the other hand, they're so "free love/60s/go-go girl" that I can't say no.

Amazing pictures! I did have the feeling there was music in the air :) I always like your pictures. I am sorry, I had to be away for some weeks, it was very hectic, but now I am "settled down" and back to the blogosphere. Tassels... it's burlesque, I think. Don't know whether or not I like them or not! denisesplanet com

I think it looks great, it's a kind of mysterious mystical look!
Hope you're well and stop by sometime! Sarah, x

Gorgeous! I love the colors in these - especially the second to last one! I think you pulled off the aura of "intoxicated clubber" very well.

I love your poses, your facial expressions, your lipstick, your hair, your red rimmed heart shaped Primark sunnies. You look beautiful and your photography is fantastic. I love the effects. I'm not on Facebook (sorry) but I love your photographs. I think it's great when people follow their own desires with respect to what they do or don't wear. I think nipple tassles are great for some kinds of dancing and for show.

I don't really like or see the point in nipple tassels. I can't say I've seen that many though so maybe I could be persuaded otherwise. I'm in the club of 'either show me your nipples or don't' though!

I love the pictures, Holly! You look lovely and your curvy tiny waist is just damn HAWT ;)
