Who is Viridis Somnio? I’ll be a certified re-poster today, since I hardly have a nanosecond to shoot anything at the moment.

Paige Thompson has personally written on her Deviant Art page that her lip collection photos are under commercial copyright for those individuals or organizations who have the intent on featuring them with commercial intent. On the other hand, she has stated that internet bloggers are free to share or feature her art for the sake of appreciation free of charge :).
