Hi everyone, it's me MIU!

Half-Japanese and half-Thai, I'm a free-lance semi-professional MODEL and ARTISTE based in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. I have lived in the UK for 12 years previous to that, where my modelling career was born in 2008.

Apart from working all over the UK and Holland, assignments have taken me to Belgium, Germany, Spain, France, Sweden, Ireland and, of course, my hometown Japan!

I started as a life model posing nude for artists in the late 90s and eventually put myself in front of the cameras as a glamour model and became involved in car shows and hostessing parties and events in the UK. Easily bored with the same old routine I like to vary my work. Today, much of my work lie with nude, fetish, alternative, and erotic art.

For more information, you can also find me on: http://www.minimiumodel.com/

I love to document all my shoots and events to reflect what a great time I'm having and meeting all sorts of people. Some entries may be delayed since the shoot due to waiting for edited images or just being "busy". But I do my best!

Pink and Rubber Fetish Fashion with Andy Dendy

Whilst I was in Amsterdam last month, I had the pleasure to work with a fellow visitor from England. (28 February 2010) Yes, Andy Dendy whom I befriended in Facebook via a network of photographers. He happened to be around that weekend because our friend, fellow model Nathalie van den Heuvel, was having a birthday session followed by a night at a fetish club! In fact, I met Nathalie for the first time during this trip though we have been chatting on Facebook all this time...!
My image of Andy was completely different from what I had imagined. On Facebook, he is always mentioning "going to the pub" so my vision of him was some loud white-van-man type whom I expected to show up staggering with a lager in one hand. I was wrong! Apart from being sober, Andy turned out to be such a sweet, gentle, funny and friendly guy, totally harmless. And he's such an awesome photographer. I like the fact that he takes photos from interesting angles like lying on the floor so I could look like a 6' tall leggy knockout... why can't more togs do that??? They can all learn from this!!!
We had the pictures taken at Alan's house in Amsterdam, a rather spacious and well-lit flat which is a perfect location for shoots. I've never done a shoot wearing Latex before, let alone trying one on till a few days ago at a shop for the first time, so I was ever so excited!!! They are also quite expensive so I never ventured out to purchase any. Luckily, Andy brought some over with him from England for me to try on... and WOW! I see what people mean when they say Latex is second skin! It is very comfortable and makes me feel so sexy!!!
We thought we'd warm up by doing a cute Pink theme. Pink wig with pink PVC miniskirt and matching top I happened to buy a few days ago when I was shopping with Nathalie. This is supposed to be happy, cute and silly, and I had so much fun! As with latex, I've never done a shoot wearing a wig before. I quite liked the idea and thought to myself I ought to get shot in wigs more often especially in interesting colours... also quite liked the bob!
The next two sets were down to the seriously mean femme fatale look, a sharp contrast to the bubble-gum cute pink theme... I chose the black dress with the high collar to enhance the Oriental look and put my hair up in a high ponytail holding a whip and wearing a pair of high heels with studs on bottom... then for the second set I changed into another black latex dress but this time with a zipper in the front to give me a cleavage effect (I know, what cleavage?). I put on a pair of hotpink pvc gloves and let my hair down... wow, I really do love latex! If I had all the money in the world, I'd have a wardrobe full of latex outfits in all different colours... black, blue, red, yellow... pink!
I am very pleased with the outcome of the pictures, Andy. Well done! I really do look 6' tall, scary and dominating. Hope to shoot with you again sometime... perhaps with Nathalie too! Many thanks!
