Love it. 1 Log in to Reply the final will look something like that… Log in to Reply The pointed finger makes the look perfect. 1 Log in to Reply I knew something magical would be in the background, so that pose seemed appropriate… Log in to Reply Just love this one a lot. 1 Log in to Reply I will continue to work on this miko, sore o tanoshimini shite kudasai… Log in to Reply Leave a Reply Cancel replyYou must be logged in to post a comment.
