Heyo! Lana here, direct from the Black Milk Social Media desk :P
Today we’re gonna try something NEW!
Customer Profiles from around the world, ya dig?
We have so many cool fans across the globe, and instead of just seeing photos of these babes in reposts, we thought it would be more interesting to know a little bit more about them, so here goes!
Sharkie profile : Sasha
Sasha lives in Bad Aachen, Germany, but her parents are a Nigerian/Thai/Russian/Georgian mix, which is where she must get her striking and unique looks! Ain’t she the finest human being you ever seen?? Her first piece was the classic Legbones legs, but her favourite piece is her PVC pink skirt. Sasha loves all things Japan, art, and fashion, but hates brushing her hair, earthworms, and when adults talk in baby language. (Don’t we all!)
"Black Milk Clothing doesn't just give me super rad, special and comfy clothes, BM gave me a lot of new friends! Through the Black Milk community I got to know so many different people and now I can proudly say that I have friends all over the world! I never thought that it was possible to make such awesome friends through the internet! Whaaat?! It is possible!"

Sharkie profile : Maiken
Maiken lives in Denmark with her two mini-me’s and her fiance, who loves when she wears BM (keeper). Her first piece was Junkfood Black legs about a year ago, and she has trouble picking a favourite - though her A Sassy Nation bodysuit would probably be what she wears most. Maiken loves anything pink, and is obsessed with cupcakes. She hates spiders and liars. Maiken discovered BM when she lost a lot of weight after her last pregnancy and says it’s the best thing she’s ever done for herself :) For a hobby, she also runs a Black Milk Facebook group called “For the love of nylon” where she alters girls’ BM and creates new things from old pieces. Super talented on the sewing machine, this little lady!
“I've met some of my best friends through the BM community, people I talk to everyday. If I’m having a bad day, I can just post a selfie in the group and the girls in there immediately brighten my mood with loads of compliments. Its like a little cult and I can never explain to non-sharkies what its all about. I absolutely love the community and the brand and sharkies helped me figure out who the new me was. I just love sharkies!!”

Sharkie profile : Neva
Neva lives in Northern California but once travelled all over Norway with a bluegrass band. She’s an adventurous one, our Neva! She’s been a Sharkie for years and her first piece was Purple Galaxies, and her favourite piece is currently her Black Galaxy maxi, though her fav piece changes week to week. Neva lurves Le Petit Ecolier biscuits, her dog Hazel, and cooking for her lil family. Only thing she hates is cottage cheese (I couldn’t agree more, yeuck!).
“Black Milk, for me, started as an addiction to clothes that I fell in love with immediately, that no other companies were making. I always said “I have to wear pants, why not make them interesting?” In the beginning it was just about deciding IDGAF and wearing what I liked. After getting involved with the community and such amazing women around the world, it turned into so much more. There’s not a lot of communities of women that are truly uplifting and accepting the way Sharkies are. I’ve seen this community spread so much generosity and kindness around and its really incredible. There’s nothing like a Sharkie Party and everyone’s invited!”

Neva triple BM'ing it like a baws.
Sharkie profile : Mary
Miss Mary Mary quite contrary is one of our lovely Canadian Sharkies, she takes fresh morning OoTD pics for us everyday in her work elevator! Her first piece was the Galaxy Rainbow legs she’s pictured wearing below, and they are also amongst her favourites after all this time :D Mary loves lots of things (she’s a very loving sort of gal) like music festivals, travel, classic literature, cats, wrapping presents, cheese, binge TV watching, and BM of course! She hates bad drivers, windy days, TV show cancellations, and the fact she has to work when all she wants to do is travel! She’s pretty much obsessed with Elvis and cool fact, she actually studied Game of Thrones 10 years ago in uni, now that’s my kinda subject!
“BM is so special to me because of all the amazing people it has connected me to and the confidence boost those same amazing people have given me!”

Sharkie profile : Vendulka
The ever so talented Vendulka! We found young Vendulka and got in contact with her after some serious stalking when she featured as a finalist on Australia’s X-Factor TV show. She was wearing Aurora Skye legs and sung like an angel! She’s an amazing song writer and guitarist and was only 14 at the time. So mature for such a young lady! We’ve had her perform at our last two BM Birthday parties, and she even wrote and performed a special Sharkie song which was a cover of ‘Call me maybe” It’s hilarious and you should check it out! http://youtu.be/4mkId4jSWjM?list=UUmuDR1Oq7fNUnIDD2gO7qtg
Vendulka’s first piece were the Aurora Skye legs she wore on X-Factor, but her fav piece are her Corpse Bride legs. She loves blueberries, snowboarding and playing music, and hates waking up early (I feel ya there gurl!), cold Canberra mornings, and brussels sprouts.
“Black Milk is such a strong community & support network. If I have a gig I just post in the group for that region and sure enough I'll have some sharkies in the audience. Through BM I get to express my crazy(er) side through, bright, shiny and tight clothes. I love it!”
