{PHOTOBLAST} Can You Spend a Night in a Haunted House?

Well, can you?

They don’t have out contests like this anymore…can’t even imagine the liabilities and lawsuits that could potentially haunt the contest’s organizers in the long-run.

We procured this 1958 issue of “Suspense Magazine”, and couldn’t ignore the idea of this contest invite. In fact, it got us really thinking if we could truly spend a night in a haunted house…

Cobwebs, passageways, and broken shutters immediately come to mind. You never know what could be lurking in the shadows. After all, it is haunted, and what horrible past could really be contained within its cold cavernous walls? The whispers beneath the floor boards might be telling you something…

I guess we’ve just been in the mood for a little scare. So if you too are urging for a little hit of mystery and wonder…check out our latest {PHOTOBLAST} – it’s been a while!

Hope you enjoy this one!

E.O.F. Presents + THE SACRED ORDER OF THE GOLDEN DAWN +

sacred order 1

 AMINUS FACIT NOBILEM.

{“The Spirit Makes The Human Noble.”}

Getting ready for school or work, you might have noticed that day by day you are submitting to any number of rituals. Whether it’s washing your face or prepping for your day at the mirror, all these little things add up to make the recipe for the spell that will hopefully get you through the day. . .

This is a tradition as old as time itself. It seems so simple at first, almost unnoticeable if you haven’t thought about it, but our daily routines and the simple act of getting ready for the day is as powerful as any incantation.

sacred order 6

Focus is key, as you don’t want to invoke the wrong spirit for the day.  But if you are able to summon from deep within that one spirit that can transform you, and in turn, how you are perceived by the world, then you have a real chance of winning. But, making that metamorphosis is something only a genuine and true individual can truly take on.

For centuries, hundreds, maybe thousands, of secret societies have existed looking to possess the power of these sacred secret spirits. From the mysteries of Egypt and Ancient Greece, to Yeats’ and Crowley’s “Golden Dawn”, to the secret dormitories of the Ivy League, members of certain sacred orders have endured through the ages and kept alive this powerful knowledge.

The most powerful spirit they hope to set free is that of the ‘Rebel‘. The most courageous and strong of any being. The ‘Rebel’ is fearless and has been able to survive with its’ strong will, determination, and unwillingness to submit to anyone, or anything.

Sacred Order 10

“The mystery religions were instituted in order to protect the marvels of the commonplace from those who would devalue them.”

                      {Peter Redgrove, “The Black Goddess and the Unseen Real”.}

Long ago, high up in the sky a rebel band of Angels existed, unhappy with their destiny. Instead of sitting pretty playing harps and twirling their fingers through their hair, they followed their leader, the bold Lucifer, and leaped down from the sky and into the river Styx where they still reside to this day, invulnerable to the world, and ready to play as they please . . .

Invoking the rebel spirit is one of the things we do best here at The Eye, and possessing oneself with the invulnerability of the River Styx will without a doubt work in your favor, no matter the circumstance. Who wants to be vulnerable anyway? Instead, own your destiny, and write a place in history for yourself.

We have explored the history of these sacred orders and secret societies and have been entranced by this tradition of rebellion. The deeper you begin to look, the deeper you can understand that we are in fact living in a {Rebel Society}.

+THE SACRED ORDER OF THE GOLDEN DAWN+ is about the invocation of this ‘Rebel’ Spirit, and the traditions of spreading this magical word, and the power imparted onto the individual, once freed from a life of waiting. The answers are all around us, and only the chosen shall see them.

sacred order 18

There is a warning, however, in summoning the ‘Rebel’ to pervade the soul: always remember that the ‘Rebel’ spirit doesn’t work for anyone, and once summoned, there is no guarantees how long they might want to stay, or the darkness they might uncover once you are shown the light.

Do you think you have what it takes to invoke the ‘Rebel’ spirit? If so, take a ride with   The Eye of Faith and lets aim for Styx!

Commercial Break: Elvira Mistress of the Dark (1988)

One of the greatest figures in pop culture.  She’s hilarious, sexy and equally scary.  We dedicate the day to the best horror hostess in history,  Elvira Mistress of the Dark.

She’s risen to fame adding comic relief  to the commercial breaks of late night Horror double features, and has been around ever since.  This feature film from 1988 really showcases why so many love Elvira.

Photo blast: Playing with the Shadows.

Perhaps it’s hidden in the shroud of nightfall. Tucked behind us where we sleep. Easy to play with, but we’d never want to temper with our shadows, or do anything to risk loosing it completely. Perhaps just a circumstance of light, there is a darkness always behind us. We may resist, but we can never escape a round of shadow play.

“I thought the most beautiful thing in the world must be shadow.”
Sylvia Plath

A human being is only breath and shadow.
Sophocles

Everything that we see is a shadow cast by that which we do not see.
Martin Luther King, Jr.

Never alone, we walk through the day with a constant companion by our side. We enjoy manipulation of the light in the night. But what would we do if we couldn’t find our shadow? Would you miss it, where would it go? Would you even notice that it had left at all? A shadow is a reflection of the life we live, running parallel with our souls. Without life, would a shadow need to exist?

Mr. & Mrs. Mystery: Jil Sander Spring/Summer 2012 Campaign

Count on Jil Sander to take it to the other end of the spectrum, this time with their enigmatic new campaign images for their Spring/Summer 20012 Campaign. If there’s one thing I’m buying from Willy Vanderperre’s shoot it’s having a sense of mystery!

The campaign has left many fashion critics in the dark, and a little scared. But anyone who knows The Eye of Faith knows we aren’t afraid of anything- especially the dark! Vanderperre teeters on the edge with a lucid dreaminess with a definite Hitchcockian vibe.

Models Daria Strokous, Clement Chabernaud, and favourite, Natasha Poly- all bring their unique characteristics to really make this campaign scream!

“As far as we discern, the sole purpose of human existence is to kindle a light in the darkness of mere being.”

-Carl Jung.

“All great and beautiful work has come of first gazing without shrinking into the darkness.”

-John Rushkin.

We will definitely look forward this season to find more of that beauty in the deep dark. Are you going psycho for this new campaign like we are? Let us know in the comment section below!

Until next time,

-The Eye x
