I love the images in this video soooooo much! And teh rum is pretty good too.
I was looking through some old pictures of mine from 2010 and ran across this gem. At the time a very good customer of mine bought this choker, and was sweet enough to loan it to a friend of hers. That friend happened to be the gorgeous model Adrian Louise's and wore it for this photo shoot. It looks so pretty on her. I just love seeing what other people can do with the things I make.
The Halloween bug hit me pretty hard this weekend. There is a little hint of fall in the air right around 8:30 in the morning as I'm walking to my car. With in 30 minutes the heat of the day has wafted in and the Fall smell has dissipated But none the less it was there for just that tiny bit so the wheels in my head have been turning. And because of that I have been seriously missing the dioramas I made a little while ago. They both sold a few months back. Once I make a diorama I put them on the shelf above my work bench until they sell so I get to see them everyday. When they sell I am very excited that they will be going to a new home with new adventurers, but every once in a while I miss them like old friends.
I was looking through some old pictures of mine from 2010 and ran across this gem. This has to be my favorite couple on the planet. They were both amazingly talented models at the time among other things, and were sweet enough to show me the pictures from the photo shoot they took with the choker they purchased from me. Don't they look adorable together. I just love the persona's they have made for themselves!
Disneyland is one of my favorite places to unwind. No matter how stressed out I am the second I walk in the gates I can forget all my woes and just enjoy my surroundings. And though I love the park now the park as it was in the early days is what captures my imagination even more. One of my favorite attractions was the live action Disney mermaids. During the summers of 1965 through 1967, Disneyland's Submarine Voyage lagoon housed real live mermaids. The ladies donned tails, frolicked, and sunbathed for about 4 hours each day. There is a video on youtube of them swimming and waving through the sub's portholes as you passed. I can only imagine just how excited the little kids were who witnessed this. This blog even has try-outs for the position in the mid 1960's.
I just love the elegance of the Victorian era, but my love for sleek modern design always seems to shake those elements out of my head when making a new piece of jewelry. So when I found myself wanting to design a necklace that embodies the lacy ornate femininity of the Victorian period, as well as a modern edge. I took my favorite Victorian necklace silhouette pared it down to it’s most basic elements Added a touch of sparkle, and I kind of love that it reminds me of a butterfly too. So of course I had to name it Papillon de la Nuit (butterfly of the night).
I just ran across this shop VoodooDollDesigns. I just love her hair accessories. Such pretty skulls, the round one is a owl skull. They would be amazing for a fall wedding.
Probably my favorite memento mori clocks EVER from the remake of Nosferatu by Werner Herzog. Add to the list yet another thing I have to make. I just love the little grim reaper with the scythe.
Nosferatu: The Vampyre/Phantom Der Nacht
Here is a quick update on the custom order I recently posted about for the Halloween Bride. She just received the hair stick and messaged me the nicest feedback about the piece. I just had to share because I did have a little tear at the corner of my eye after I finished reading it because it is just so sweet.
"I cannot express enough how delighted I am with my purchase! The quality is far beyond what I expected, the communication between the artist was always open to keep me updated on the progress and was always very friendly and prompt, and to top it all off what I received in the mail I actually love more than the wedding dress it is to accompany!! I highly suggest this company to anyone!!"
I was contacted this week by this AMAZING theater group in Chicago called WildClaw. "WildClaw Theatre brings the world of horror to the stage." That of course got my attention, and I instantly wanted to go to Chicago to see one of their productions. It seems that they were having a benefit event to raise money for their next season. One of their main projects was a world premiere of a new adaptation of HP Lovecraft's The Shadow Over Innsmouth. After hearing that there is no way I could turn them down, being a HUGE Lovecraft fan myself. But the theme of the fundraising event it what REALLY got me jealous, "The theme of the party is based on Poe's Masque of the Red Death with a Dark Steampunk Twist. It will be held at the beautiful Knickerbocker Hotel on Chicago's Magnificent Mile." HOW COOL IS THAT!!! A steampunk Masque of the Red Death! That is something my dreams are made of. So I had to donate this clock hand hair comb to help out in any way I could. Pleas visit www.wildclawtheatre.com and wildclawbloodradio.blogspot.com/ to find more out about their amazing organization.
