25 WEIRD CREEPY VINTAGE HALLOWEEN COSTUME PHOTOS!

HALLOWEEN is around the corner, people!

We are getting psyched up here, and in true E.O.F. tradition we wanted to spoil our readers with a weird and wonderful stash of creepy vintage halloween photos we have collected from scouring the depths of the interwebs…

It seems, sometimes the sheer simplicity of some of these costumes make for the creepiest outcome…although, a murderous clown will always give you the creeps especially standing behind an innocent baby bystander.

Perhaps, you will even get a little inspiration for your own costume from these crazy odd balls…

 

Hope you enjoy! Want to share your creepy costume with us? Email us at the.eye.of.faith@gmail.com // we would love to hear from you!

Until next time,

Diary of a Small Town: Vintage Dreams + Nightmares {Vintage Style Moody Mood Board Inspiration}

 

We have quite the tale in store for you today at The Eye of Faith. . .

This one is taken from the darkest depths of our imagination and tells the hidden tales of a quaint small town, not too far from where you sit. It could be any small town, but this one is brimming with mystery, and dare I say, perhaps even evil!

Things started out innocent enough, but there are certain places on this Earth where malevolent energies cluster and stay for many thousands of years. It is in the quiet of the country, far from the claws and chains of the city, that have provided families and individuals with the peace, calm, and safety they desire.

 

But often times, it is the unsettling chill of calm that can provide the most fright….

Even in a town where everyone knows your name, you never know the myths and legends being made behind closed doors or the grim memories lost deep beyond the trees at night. This one is all about wayward youth, rebellion, seduction, secrets, mysteries, beauty, and strength.

Please enjoy our Small Town Dreams & Nightmares . . .

With shows like CW’s “RIVERDALE” capturing our imagination, and a new season of “TWIN PEAKS” in our midst- it goes to show that while the big city is full of brights lights and noise, sometimes its our thirst for nostalgia, the whispers in the trees, and our love of mystery that truly excites our bones!

To our vintage dreams, and  to our vintage nightmares – this one is to a town not yet forgotten. Keep the mystery close, for you never know what clues you may stumble upon. For all you know, they might still need your help.

EXCITING THINGS ABOUND FOR THE E.O.F. {SO STAY TUNED}

{STYLE WISE} – “Stranger Than Paradise”

“STRANGER THAN PARADISE . . . “

by The Eye of Faith

On a journey through the mystery of the most beautiful place on Earth.

Taking us to a world both wild and exotic, this series was inspired by the faded 1940s dreams and memories of life on the high seas in the South Pacific. It is the tale of society’s soldiers taken hostage by the wild. In many ways, it is a true Paradise Lost lived . . .
In a place where the air is hot and its perfume sweet it is hard not to be intoxicated by your surroundings –
lost in a paradise.

+”Nothing is quite as strange, as a day spent in Paradise”+

Hope you enjoy!

{Hidden in the Woods, Only Towels and Smoke Separate the Few}

This dandy has plenty of bravado standing there smoking his cigarette. Hidden in the woods, only towels and smoke separate these few journeymen somewhere in the mysterious Pacific North West. 

Taken in the early 1930s, perhaps this strange photo depicts a meeting in the woods by a mysterious secret society.

Was this the leader, or just another member of the pack? He sure has a lot of bravado, not to mention some pretty awesome leather runners! Love those lace-ups!

The Rites of Spring

Our last few posts have been harbouring a certain darkness and creepiness (that we of course love), but seeing as Spring has already sprung we thought we’d pay some respect to a most glorious of seasons.

Just as Stravinsky saw a vision of youth, sacrifice, and above-all beauty in his musical megawork The Rite of Spring, we at The Eye of Faith are seeing the beauty of nature and the primitive simplicities of – well, BEING.

The days thus far have been absolutely gorgeous, and no doubt we have the Gods of Spring to thank for that! Let’s just hope we can hold onto his benevolence!

Oh, the joys of youth! Pretty stuff today, but don’t think we have let go of our demons. After all, as Aristophanes said:

“Evil events from evil cause spring”

Persephone awaits!


Until next time,

Boy Scout Style Now!

With the ‘coming’ Apocalypse, or just the change of season, any man could benifit from the skills shared by the Boy Scouts of America (BSA). Even a pocket knife could be enough to save your hide.  Nothing compares to the skills and trades of these wilderness boys, who abide by their own strict moral code. We must admit our love of scarves, so you may understand our intrigue with the uniform of a Scout.

As families moved to settling America, many organizations began forming across the country to help raise children in the changing world. Since its founding in 1901, more than 110 million americans have been members of the Scouts. BSA had two notable predecessors in the United States: the Woodcraft Indians started by Ernest Thompson Seton in 1902 and the Sons of Daniel Boone founded by Daniel Carter Beard in 1905 in Cincinnati, Ohio.

In 1907, British General Robert Baden-Powell founded the Scouting movement in England using elements of Seton’s works among other influences. Several small local Scouting programs for boys started independently in the U.S., soon after, many of these programs merged with the BSA.

Militant style.  Cool boyish attitude. Scarves and swagger. These boys got the moves like jaggar. Go for a clean look and save tradition. Boots and pressed shorts, with a crisp collar and red scarf can keep that look true to the Scouts mission if your feelin’ fresh. Or do your own thing and add some personal flaire, use an ignigmatic pattern or print in a scarf, don’t worry about colour, as long as you keep that insinuation of camping in a uniform with a boyish quality, everybody will look toward with as their Saviour.

Of course a world with all boys and grown men seems unquestionably controversial, and it has proved to be over history. Declared in Scout Oath and Law, the boys are obligated to be ‘morally straight and clean in thought, word, and deed’ to discourage homosexuality, and girl’s are not allowed to join at youth level, but could volunteer as leaders as older women, so not to obliterate a woman’s influence all together. When a member of any organization, one must expect a certain conduct required. The BSA contends that these policies are essential in its mission in the traditional programs to instill in young people the values of the Scout Oath and Law.

Scout Oath:
On my honor, I will do my best
To do my duty to God and my country;
To obey the Scout Law;
To help other people at all times;
To keep myself physically strong, mentally awake and morally straight.

Scout Law:
A Scout is trustworthy, loyal, helpful, friendly, courteous, kind, obedient, cheerful, thrifty, brave, clean, and reverent.

Scout Motto:
Be Prepared

Scout Slogan:
Do a good turn daily

Outdoor Code:
As an American, I will do my best, to be clean in my outdoor manners, to be careful with fire, to be considerate in the outdoors, and to be conservation minded

We understand the sentiment of the Boy Scouts of America, and wish more people complied with some of the codes of conduct. Being more courteous and cheerful, and always safe with fire. Let’s all take a nod from these fella’s and be considerate of our outdoors, and feel confidant in standing up for our values and goals! You won’t need badge, just get out today and be kind to someone, and be part of something larger than yourself.

Will you be gettin’ out there, whether it’s down the street or into the woods to do a good turn??

Is Freedom Free?

It’s always nice to get a new look! We’re celebrating ours with a quick little PHOTOBLAST session. This one is short, but sweet.

What makes you feel good, and can we ever like our decisions? The world is changing so fast, and can ever feel isolating as our world changes so fast! We think always feeling good is a unique opportunity you have as an individual, but we also think we can be generous to the Earth in the mean time. That means taking care, people!

Over 3 trillion pounds of used textiles are thrown to waste every year. Lets restore the beauty, and the cool, and keep the spirit of vintage alive.


We want comments, so let us know how you feel.
