JAZMIN BEAN: I don’t mind people being scared of me; I actually enjoy it. It’s just like, funny because under this, I’m just like a 5’3’’ human. JAZMIN BEAN: I have days off because obviously I don’t like being harassed every day. There’s a lot of loud reactions, especially looking like this. JAZMIN BEAN: I don’t know it’s strange. JAZMIN BEAN: I’m Jazmin Bean and I’m into posthuman creepy and Japanese fashion. JAZMIN BEAN: A lot of people feel like people that dress like this are wasting their body but I feel that I’m wasting my body by not doing this. JAZMIN BEAN: I’d like, to say my inspiration is in a bit of like, fantasy, fairies and cool little like, creatures like, mythological. This is spider, I wore it to like, this con and I was like, carrying a spider around like that as if it was like my pet. I have like, a lot of like, Japanese toys and also like the more Tim Burtony side, dark, creepy. JAZMIN BEAN: I started just with drag make-up. I was doing like, face looks, and it just kept on evolving and evolving. It just feels like, it’s like cutting into my eye, but it’s ok, anything for the look. Everyone has to suffer a bit for fashion. JAZMIN BEAN: Nullification is just like, when you have no sexual organs or at least that you can see. Right now, I’m wearing a binder just to give off more of like, the alien genderless look. I’d like to wear it more on my off days but it does get quite damaging for your ribs. One day hopefully I’ll have surgery just to be like, completely like, nothing. JAZMIN BEAN: This is Gum; that’s her name. people think that if you are looking like this that you are just in some fantasy world and not having a job and you don’t do real life stuff. JAZMIN BEAN: But you have to as much as you don’t want to and that’s just like, the reality of it. JAZMIN BEAN: These are my weapons, I’d like to have a lot more. I wanted to get like, a few swords and stuff but they’re really expensive. I wanted to hang this above my bed like that but then I realized if it fell like, it’d probably kill me. Is that allowed? I know weapons aren’t allowed in London, but this isn’t real, but it is but it’s not. JAZMIN BEAN: This is Elmo, he’s blind or mostly blind. JAZMIN BEAN: I just want to like, go and leave the house and do stuff but people are very mean. And obviously I’m just trying to go and do my thing. I don’t really want all the attention. JAZMIN BEAN: I met a lot of my friends from online. One of them, Salvia. SALVIA: We met at Electrowerkz, it’s a club in London. JAZMIN BEAN: When a body meets a body, there’s just no choice but to become bestie westies. Definitely it’s helped with my anxiety a lot. I remember before I started doing this, even taking a picture like, in public would be like, “Oh my God, don’t let anyone see that they’re taking a picture of me”. Now I think being so outrageous in this element helped me to not be afraid. JAZMIN BEAN: I don’t think I’ll ever stop. JAZMIN BEAN: When I’m 70, before I die, I want to just like try everything. JAZMIN BEAN: Seeing people like what I do and be inspired by it most of all is lovely. JAZMIN BEAN: Find your own thing before anything because obviously we don’t like copiers.
