Make Yourself Look Thinner in Photos + The Heima MT Spaces Exhibit

Make yourself look thinner in photos!  This is what I’ve been guilty of lately.  No folks, you won’t find a step-by-step tutorial here on how to liquify your curves on Photoshop & other digital techniques.  I’m actually sticking to the basics.  I even forgot to include the following:

1) Crop unwanted fats away (always the best & easiest)
2) Ask someone to take a photo of you from a child’s eye view
3) If you’re not wearing heels, just tiptoe for longer looking legs
4) If you’re ever scared about showing your legs, do this. 😛
How People Make Themselves Look Thinner

While coming up with this post, I was actually feeling a bit guilty.  Am I encouraging you, the blog visitor, to starve thyself?  Am I actually asking everyone to live an unhealthy lifestyle?  But, I realized, I have done more than my fair share of convincing everyone that chocolate is good one’s body, life is nothing without cronuts and that all we need is love are are chocolates.

Meanwhile, I did a lot of Tip #1 last week during the MT Spaces exhibit!  Look who just hid behind Ponggo & cropped herself too!

05 Tippy & Pong with house

I first stumbled upon these giant washi tapes called MT Casa during a trip to a trip to Hong Kong early this year.  I always wondered how fun it was like to play with giant rolls of washi so I was thrilled when Ponggo & I received an invitation from Heima to be the fourth group to participate in their washi exhibit!

Upper Left: The MT Casa Poster (We’re really super thrilled to see our name on the poster).  It’s our first time to ever be participating in an exhibit as a couple 🙂 Upper Right: That’s Cai of Heima posing for us.  When we were still discussing the dimensions of the house, they would always call in Cai because she’s as literally as tall as the house! Lower Left: Another home washified by Real Living Magazine.  Lower Right: Collages by Carina Santos. This makes me want to buy washi tapes just so that I can do that on one of my walls!EWWS at Heima MT Casa Brixton

Above: The creative duo Garovs & Ryan of Everywhere We Shoot! They also made washi collages on clocks and washified their house with electric colors!  I always tremble when I take photos of good photographers and I get extra paranoid about getting all the parameters right.  *Ahhhh*

Badass Kiddie Tattoos

Nothing more badass than these tattoos!  I don’t know what entered Ponggo’s mind that night but he placed one on each cheek!  I so wanted to disown him!

Aside from Nights of Rizal & Suppermikki, music was provided by Gentle Universe (Click on the link to listen to their amusing, nostalgic & upbeat tracks on sound cloud), “All – Day Breakfast In Flower Bed” is also one of my favorite tracks while putting up stuff for the exhibit.

 Thanks again Bong & Rossy of Heima for trusting us with your washi tapes! 🙂 Thank you for giving us the opportunity to partake in this exhibit.  🙂  To those who missed it! Don’t worry.  The exhibit will be up until next Friday, the 11th of October.  Oh, we’re selling all the stuff inside the house too!
