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,

{FAVOURITE FIND} 1930’s BAD ASS COOL DUDES PREP SCHOOL GROUP PHOTO!!!

These boys clearly know what’s up!

We love photos like these that go to prove the notion of ‘cool’ is absolutely timeless!!! We might argue that these guys bring ‘cool’ to a level that we barely even reach these daze. . .

We’re all consumed by our social media accounts, and the latest trend – meanwhile, these boys understand true camaraderie, having fun, looking good, and not taking life so seriously!

It’s fun also to imagine the in’s and out’s of these boys life outside the frame. They are, indeed, a very eclectic bunch, and who even knows what this photo was taken for?

We believe its some kind of class photo from a prep school, and judging from the wear on the photo, and their clothes – taken sometime in the 1930s. The handsome devil in the striped sweater vest in the centre of the group is obviously the ring leader. Love his buddies chilling on the stone orbs flanking the stairs.

Its photos like these that make you wish you could dive right into these photos and experience the moment – lucky for us, we have a singular moment captured forever with the magic of sunlight and silver.

We picture this framed for your home or workplace, or simply as some true style inspiration . . .

These beautiful snapshots were taken by photographer Don James between the years 1936 and 1942 on the shores of San Onofre, California. Whether black and white, or the gorgeously desaturated Kodachrome prints, each photograph is a beautiful lost memory of fun had, and good times past.

#RiotClub – Secret Society Style Prevails Yet Again!

Cast of The Riot Club- Secret Society Style- The Eye of Faith

They don’t know when to stop . . . 

It’s as if they tapped into our brains with this one!

“Riot Club” is the latest film from British director Lone Scherfig who last brought us a vintage style feast in 2009’s “An Education”.

The film is a fictionalized vision based on the salacious modus operandi of the notorious Bullingdon Club, who came to the forefront of the media’s gaze in the 1980s as they trashed their way through some of England’s finest establishments. The most shocking aspect of their antics was that the band of bad asses were actually some of British society’s finest bred.

the bullingdon club

(1) the Hon. Edward Sebastian Grigg [the BBC Pension Trust sub-contractor and former SCREAM snuff-film director for Goldman Sachs], the heir to Baron Altrincham of Tormarton and current chairman of Credit Suisse (UK)
(2) David Cameron
(3) Ralph Perry Robinson, a former child actor, designer, furniture-maker
(4) Ewen Fergusson, son of the British ambassador to France, Sir Ewen Fergusson and now at City law firm Herbert Smith
(5) Matthew Benson, the heir to the Earldom of Wemyss and March
(6) Sebastian James, the son of Lord Northbourne, a major landowner in Kent
(7) Jonathan Ford, the-then president of the club, a banker with Morgan Grenfell
(8) Boris Johnson, the-then president of the Oxford Union, now Lord Mayor of London
9) Harry Eastwood, the investment fund consultant

Based on the play Posh by Laura Wade, the film delves into the manic musings of the centuries old club which resided within the historic confines of Oxford University, and the psychology of privilege that prevailed in the minds of the club’s most esteemed members.

Many members of the Bullingdon Club would go on to become some of England’s most powerful and influential politicians and businessmen including Prime Minister David Cameron, British ambassador to France Sir Ewen Fergusson, Jonathan Ford and Boris Johnson. Some of the club’s legendary members included King Edward VII, King Edward VIII, Cecil Rhodes, Nathaniel Rothschild, and Gottfried von Bismarck!

Makes you think . . .

Needless to say, after watching the trailer for the film, we are psyched as ever to see the story of the Buller boys come to life! We love to see that secret society style truly is making its way to the forefront!

After all, everyday in life we encounter secret societies. Whether they be clubs or members only parties, or just the secret conversations with have with our friends and family – they are all the same. It’s that bond that keeps us all together in the end, and no matter how hard we try, we cannot escape wanting to feel like we belong to something exclusively ours.

This is the truth.

Can’t wait!

“I don’t think an evening would have ended without a restaurant being trashed and being paid for in full, very often in cash. […] A night in the cells would be regarded as being par for a Buller man and so would debagging anyone who really attracted the irritation of the Buller men.”

Andrew Grimson, biographer of Boris Johnson on the Bullingdon Club in the 1980s

There are Giants in the Sky (and in the Middle of My Small Town…Twerking Like They Did in the 60s)

 

Village of the Giants- 1965- rebel rockabilly classic pop -Vintage Clothing Style Inspirations- The Eye of Faith- 4

 

So they didn’t twerk in the 60s, but the dance moves in this 1960s B-Movie cult classic, “Village of the Giants“, was more than risqué and still delivers on undoubted sex appeal.

We can’t help but love the attention the camera pays to the beautiful natural curves and flesh of the actors who really know how to jiggle their juices. It’s cool to see how in 1965, a small flick like this can in many ways be more sexually tempting and stimulating than the in-your-face provocations of today’s movie and music video scene. It’s so simple…and sometimes that is all it takes!

See them burst out their clothes, and terrorize a town!

(I’m in . . .)

There’s a real ‘edginess’, as we say these days, to it all, and the music is great too. Leave it to misfits teens to make everything fun . . .

When a group of rebel misfits get their hands on “goo”, a mysterious compound that makes every GIANT, who didn’t see some wild dance parties starting? Even in the middle of perfect All-American Hainesville, where ducks roam the sidewalks and white picket fences are for everyone, you can’t stop a gang of rebellious teens from having fun, ESPECIALLY when they are fifty feet tall (give or take).

It’s hard to believe that it’s been 50 years since this film hit the screen for the first time, but it is still remembered as a cult classic with notable special effects for its time, and undoubted sex appeal.

Full of exuberant and fresh classic styles, and plenty of 1960s psychedelic fun!

Get ready to dance with the giants . . .

JUST THINKING….

On the subject of rebel misfit teens: How cool would ‘The Bling Ring‘ have been if they were just giants?!

Imagine  . . .

Oh, dancing . . .

Until next time!

Whether today, sixty years ago, or seventy-five from now, we will always have the need to look good, and put ourselves together in a way that says ‘this is me’. It’s our suit; our armor that lets the world know we mean business.

No matter the day for us, we always like to set the mood for the day with a healthy dose of style, and with the release of Rihanna‘s “Styled to Rock” (finally; the UK version was the SHIT) in the US, we couldn’t help but feel the need to do what we do best: look back to the {past} for clues to the {present} to help us foresee and shape the {future}.

Rihanna always gets it done, and with the epitome of laid-back rock n’ roll sophisticated bad ass cool, Erin Wasson, hosting the gig, it’s a wicked hour of fashion meets music, and the basis for this wicked {Photoblast} of vintage style inspiration that explores some of our predecessors who knew how good life can be when you are Styled to Rock!

E.O.F. Photoblast: The Perils of a Mask


As we spend our waking days on the open road, we come across so many new faces any given sunday.  Each with a story, and a depth of compassion unique to each individual.

If one common thread runs true, it’s the restraint one can take to fit the ‘norm’.  We’re constantly encouraging our readers to do away with this mask of normality, and craft a new facade, mirror’d in your own image.  With qualities unique and true.

Time holds no barred, because this is a tale as old as time.  Make your mark, and proudly wear the mask of yourself while starring back at your own destiny.  Head no fear, temptation will be near.  The strength you have in diversity will always stand beside you in your courage.

Old photographs tell the oldest tales perhaps the loudest.  With mystery behind the eye’s, story’s we’ll never truly get to hear,  yet an expression of a mask telling every detail.

“Man is least himself when he talks in his own person. Give him a mask, and he will tell you the truth.”

-Oscar Wilde

So head our words, the world is full of so many pressures today, and it seems like everyday the numbers are growing, so the last thing you need is adding yourself to the equation! JUST DO YOU!

Find what makes you happy, and what sets you apart, then just let the freak flags fly. For two thousand years we have been obsessed with being unhappy with ourselves, and it’s about time we start to change that!
