I can’t tell you how excited I am to FINALLY post these pics. I had the amazing opportunity to shoot with the amazing head wrap company Fanm Djanm. Owned by a good friend Paola Mathe, Fanm Djanm gives endless visual of the beauty and diversity of black women. When Paola emailed me and asked if I wanted to be a part of this project, I couldn’t email her back fast enough. This shoot was all about celebrating black history month and our power as black women. I mean honestly, why would I not want to be a part of this? If you aren’t familiar with Fanm Djanm (strong woman in creole) it is the brainchild of Paola Mathe that brings quality headwraps, clothing, jewelry and more to your closet. Paola is not just about selling headwraps but rather creating a story that will allow women to look, feel and be empowered. Be sure to check out her website. You most certainly won’t be disappointed. Soooooo excuse me while I sprinkle #BlackGirlMagic all down this blog post.
The 5th Wall means, making my own dreams come true. It means taking my place in the world of comic books. It means having an outlet for my imagination. It means building a legacy. The 5th Wall is taking a group of talented individuals who share the love of sci-fi, fantasy, horror, and art and creating our own world and filling it with those things. It’s doing things our way, and bringing originality and diversity into the nerd culture. The 5th Wall gives us the chance to build interactions between the authors, characters, and fans across all aspects of multimedia and build an empire to make this possible.
