Episode 16: #EmbraceYourself

Like many of The Weird Girls Project  episodes, “EmbraceYourself”, assumes a music video format as a platform to encourage body confidence in variety. The piece features women encrusted in thickly layered gold body glitter dancing amidst wet volcanic sand with a backdrop of angled mirrors. The purpose of this piece is to promote a message to women to embrace their bodies; women celebrating as themselves and to truly love who they are.
