Grab your scuba gear for this one. Andreas Frank has placed characters from a bygone era underwater on modern sunken ships. Fancy that!

Wow. This is a truly incredible wedding display. These folks chose a Dark Circus theme and went all out with it.
I think it’s wonderful that this couple designed such a unique and visually stunning event.
The decorations, the lighting, the food and the clothing are all perfect for the idea.
No one involved in this wedding will ever forget the experience. See more pictures here.
The Pictoral Arts has a nice little post about early 20th Century costumes for musical revues. Here are my favorites among them.

Just a quick post to showcase this amazing Batman nail art (if I ever did this, I would have to paint on fake nails because I couldn’t stand to see these designs chip away and fall off!).
Of course, since this is high fashion, Paper Passion will probably cost a bloody fortune (and be rather stinky)…but I like the we bookworms are getting some highbrow attention.
Has anyone smelled this or other book scented products? What’s the verdict?
If you hadn’t guessed, I’m not a huge wearer of bright colors (it happens, but it’s usually somehow layered with dark things)…however, these bat & flower silk scarves by Klaus Haapaniemi are wonderful:
I’ve always loved the idea of half-hidden darkness or unconventionality. An unsuspecting onlooker would have to look closely to see the bats…but I’d know they’re there.
There are also spider patterns for the arachnid-inclined.
These are giving me craft ideas. I bet some fantastic embroidery creations could emerge with the mingling of bats and flowers.
Well, this is certainly one of the more interesting headpieces I’ve seen. It comes from On Your Head’s etsy store.
While I’d hesitate to wear this piece…say…to the grocery store or post office, I think it would work quite nicely at some of the more unique events on my list to attend.

I was taken aback upon looking at this because it feels like someone did a high-contrast caricature of me without my knowledge (if you doubt it, see photo on upper right). Got the hair and my spindly little limbs down…
