My Black Swan

Black Swan is a 2010 movie that I only got around to watching recently. My husband recommended it because we’re both fans of psychologic thrillers. He really sold it when he mentioned there were sex scenes involving Natalie Portman and Mila Kunis. Who would want to miss that? 😉

When I was younger I was a ballerina. That, combined with my love of make-up and cosplay meant I had to try my hand at the Black Swan costume.

So I bought a corset and customised it to suit. I took a little artistic license, as I often do. The tutu and ballet shoes were made by hand. And I do all my own makeup, naturally 🙂

I was really struck by the dark vibes given off by Portman’s makeup. The intensity is very real and so appropriate for the Halloween season.




Thanks for visiting Smutling. I hope you enjoy my work.
Don't miss a thing, follow for updates!

Love, Nikki xx
