MEXICO / GERMANY: Mujer Gato – Dark Elegance and Steam Punk Fashion

I followed the photos of this fascinating artist lady on Instagram or Facebook for quite a while and always I thought those pictures are just damn cool, also very weird and often like from another world. The actress and creator of these scenarios with super stylish portraits is Dulce Ramirez. She currently lives in Heilbronn in Germany, but is actually from Mexico City.

Namely herself: Mujer Gato. She’s weird, dark, interesting, different.

He published as well a book and is producing cool t-shirts, but mainly he is a musician.
