{MANIC MONDAY} Vintage “20/20” – “The Exorcism” circa 1991. REAL LIFE EXORCISM.

We wanted to start right out with the juice on this one, and take us straight into Part 2 of this disturbing segment from 20/20 back over 20 years ago. “The Exorcism” was the very first time the controversial rites of exorcism had ever been documented and aired on network television causing quite the stir.

20 years later the footage is as raw and disturbing as ever. Definitely beats the crap out of the Horror they try to feed you today. This kind of evil only exists in the twisted realms of our own reality.

Forget what you’ve seen – real life is always better {scarier}.

Question is: What do you believe?

Could the young 16 year old girl seriously be possessed by evil souls living deep in her body, or is this a battle of her rebellious teenage subconscious? This timeless battle between science and religion is carefully crafted by ABC correspondent Tom Jarriell with vintage appearances by the show’s anchors Hugh Downs, and the always stylin’ Barbara Walters.

Thanks to videoholics90s for the fantastically freaky clip! We’ll need to get our head back on straight after that, is for sure! Link from Youtube for the rest. Hope you enjoy!

E.O.F. Snapshot of the Day [March 24/2016]

-+The Levitating Man+-

[circa. 1930s]

This image is both majestic and terrifying.

Not sure what incredible moment has been captured here.

It is most decidedly America in the 1930s at the height of the Depression.

Many people turned their sights to the paranormal for an escape from the everyday..

Today we use the internet which is earnestly less exciting.

We wish we could do that.

Daaaammn.

+STYLE STAR+ ANDRE JUDD: PROPHET OF FASHION

If you’re a fan of Lookbook, or have ever had the chance to browse the online showcase of individual styles gathered to help foster the “collective fashion consciousness” that Lookbook is all about. While glancing past looks by a self proclaimed Mermaid from Neverland you are bound to stumble across this true one-of-a-kind Prophet of Fashion.

Just when you thought style couldn’t get more exciting or gloriously out-of-control you will meet Andre Judd. Andre treads the lines of dreaming and reality with a panache and attention to detail rivalling some of fashion’s greats. Time and time again, Andre has proved that the art of dressing is as much an art as any.

This type of talent is rare, and very few can achieve his bold unique punch of imagination, virtual reality, and pure abandon.  So, naturally we felt the need to connect with the Stylist, Designer, and Fashion Blogger Extraordinaire who answered a few of our questions on life, style, inspiration, and the unique fashion-forward fashion scene of Manila!

Most of all, we felt Andre was the perfect example of what we here at The Eye of Faith are always harping on about and that’s the courage to find inspiration and be your truest self to the highest extent.

“We see something new. Something exciting”

-Andre Judd.

EOF: There seems to be a lot of excitement and intrigue in the world of fashion in the Philippines. What would surprise or excite people most about the Filipino fashion scene?

AJ: Indeed. Every season we see new bright young talents emerge. These designers score high on the critics and fashion press because they have a refined focus on aesthetics as well being commercial.

I think what excites Filipinos about the fashion scene, is that every season it gets better and better. We see something new, something exciting.


EOF: Where would you say the epicentre of Filipino fashion is right now in the Philippines? Any favourite go-to spots?

AJ: Manila is considered the current fashion epicenter, drawing in designers from different parts of the country, as well as Filipino designers based abroad. There are a lot of cool retail shops and boutiques to check out in Manila. Top of my mind is Greenbelt 5, where a few concentrated stores are found selling current collections from my favourite local designers.

EOF: We love how many looks you create, and your undeniable knowledge for style. Who taught you these secrets? God, or deal with the Devil?

AJ: God. Definitely 🙂

EOF: What has been your most important lesson in life when it comes to your own personal brand of style?


AJ: Never say never. It’s my mantra ever since.

EOF: Creating so many complex and detailed looks must be quite the task. What is your secret to staying focused?

AJ: It’s not really hard. I wake up every morning with a strong idea on what I would wear.

EOF: You mix a lot of items one might typically prescribe as masculine or feminine, and it seems once they get the Andre Judd touch, it’s neither. Instead, it’s a whole new brand of cool. What do you call this?
AJ: Some call it non-conventional, others call it androgynous, but I call it post-modern and irreverent 🙂

“Fashion is about change”

-Andre Judd.

EOF: Interesting shapes, textures, and patterns are essential ingredients to your fashion magic. Do you have any tips on incorporating these ideas into one’s everyday style?
AJ: Try playing with shapes, textures, and patterns. For the novice, one can start with just one different detail. Like if you love black, why not play with colour – lets say fuchsia, and combine it with black. If you like wearing block colors, why not try a printed top? It’s the idea of adapting to new things. After all, fashion is about change. You don’t need to sacrifice your style, you just simply like it to evolve 🙂

EOF: You’ve accidentally conjured up an angry spirit who won’t get the hell out of your closet. You want to call the cops, but you know they won’t believe you so you pull out your exorcism kit and go to work. What is the one thing you are hoping to save from your wardrobe?
AJ: Oh my, toughest question ever. I’d pick my accessories box. You can do wonders to your look just by adding a necklace or a brooch.

EOF: What is your favourite vintage find, and why do you think your devils approve?

AJ: Its my Gianni Versace bomber jacket from the 80s.  You wouldn’t believe how super cheap I got it. Its my number one treasured find because its real leather, it has chain mail, looks very contemporary,  the color of the leather goes with anything, and it gives an instant edge to any look.

EOF: We have received a lot of botched up advice on fashion in our lives, but we have always stayed pure to what is inside. What is the worst fashion advice you’ve ever been given?

AJ: Men shouldn’t wear women’s clothing.

EOF: For us, fashion is definitely an escape, and the style or look we wear is the story being told. You are an expert in storytelling, with a seemingly eternal well of inspiration. With almost 400 looks on LOOKBOOK, dark we ask – do you have a favourite?

AJ: Every new look I post is my favourite.

EOF: Here at The Eye of Faith, we like to think of ourselves as soldiers marching for a better tomorrow. Are there any causes or struggles in your life that you are fighting for?

AJ: I am a huge advocate of Filipino fashion so as much as I can I like to wear Filipino designers in my looks. That way I can help promote their names in the international scene via LOOKBOOK.

EOF: What sort of things can the readers of The Eye of Faith expect from Andre Judd in the future?

AJ: Expect the unexpected 🙂

STYLE {WISE} – Suddenly Seeking Sweater Girls

{Natassja Kinski in Paris, Texas (1984)}

[Photo Source: PICCSY]

Lovely ladies, it seems we’ve been thinking of you a lot lately. It’s not by accident, for we have been meditating on many thoughts as of late about our many loves and desires when it comes to female fashions. In true E.O.F. Style we stepped back to the past for a little taste of times past to infiltrate our vintage vision for the future. When it comes to sweaters, it’s not hard to see how having a great one is top of the pops for most style driven Sams and Sallys. If it’s not one, it better be a hundred. There aren’t many sweater that go out of style, either. They are simply one of those timeless treasures that titillate… Indeed, there was a time when we imagined only the good girl donning a prim and proper sweater, but don’t be fooled. Many a femme fatale and vixen have adorned their bodies with an armor of angora to dumb found the senses. We looked back  the distant and recent past to pull some of the best images we could find that helped seduce and inspire.  Listen close, and you might hear the sweet, sweet, song of the Sweater Girls….

“I’ve got a twenty pound ball hanging on a chain around my neck.

I’ve got to get away, run before I’ll be called away.

I’ve got to break these chains, before I go insane.

I’ve got to get up and go, go any place I don’t know.

I’m gonna break away from all the chains that bind

And everyday I’ll wear what I want

And do what suits me fine…

I’m gonna break away…

Break away from the Everyday…”

-“Breakaway” sung by Toni Basil, Prod. by Ed Cobb.

NEW FOUND IMAGES OF WAR FROM THE EYE OF FAITH!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

WAR? What is it good for?

ABSOLUTELY NOTHING!

Those are the words we have stuck in our head, as of late. With the world in such a dizzy spell of violence and outrage, its hard to believe in a world where war doesn’t exist. But, like the faithful dreamers we are, we will have hope.

War has been around for centuries, and probably since the dawn of man; and yet between the moments of fiery battle and angry destruction, we somehow all find moments of tranquility and joy.

We uncovered a huge collection of beautiful war time photography dating to World War 2 that capture brilliantly and honestly those moments of humanity that really make us the grand creatures we truly are destined to be.

There are smiles, and laughs, and plenty of love and friendship – so much so, that it becomes heartbreaking to imagine the lives of these young boys, and the persistence of wondering whether or not they even survived the tragedies that awaited them.

Here is a look at some of the mysterious moments captured that we now possess to share with the world never to be forgotten.

So, there’s an itty bitty taste of what our collection contains! You’ve seen other unique photos from our collection before, and many of them have been shipped off to museums and/or universities where they will be safely stored and studied for their remarkable sense of composition, as well as place and time.

We are so proud and honoured to have these vintage snapshots as a part of our brand, and I think it is so important for us to keep obtaining these and other photographs, as so these moments will not be lost in time, and the artists, though unknown, can retain some respect and admiration for their spur of the moment creative thought and action!

You’ll probably see a few of these posted on our Etsy {SHOP} over the next few days, so please check it out! Vintage vernacular photographs are one of a kind, and is an affordable way to start collecting art! You can guarantee these pieces will start a million conversations, which is just another aspect that is incredibly enjoyable when collecting vintage snapshot photography.

Not only are they art, but they are a piece of history! So head over now for a peak . . .

How to Cook a Unicorn!

EOF- How to cook a Unicorn

“Taketh one unicorne . . .”

Talk about secret knowledge! It seems scholars are absolutely ecstatic to find a long lost Medieval cookbook that includes recipes and instructions for cooking Unicorns!

The book was uncovered by The British Library, and contains hundreds of recipes for classical Medieval dishes that include herring, tripe, fish stews, and pigeon, as well as a delicious recipe for black bird pie – just like the nursery rhyme!

Sing a song of sixpence

A pocket full of rye

 Four-and-twenty blackbirds

Baked in a pie.

But among the most interesting of the dishes presented in the beautifully illuminated pages of the book they believe dates back to the 14th Century, is a most peculiar instruction for the preparation of Unicorn, complete with pictures!

EOF- How to Cook a Unicorn 2

The recipe begins appropriately with the phrase “Taketh one unicorne” and continues to instruct the cook to take the meat of the beast and marinate in cloves and garlic and then roast it on the griddle. I think I want seconds, already!

Scholars believe the cookbook was written by famed chef of the moment, Geoffrey Fule, who served as the chef to Philippa of Hainault, Queen of England (1328-1369). Was this all just a jest? Or, could there be some truth to the matter?

Most people assume that Unicorns are only a myth, but perhaps those beautiful ponies with their majestic horns really did roam freely through the lands. Story goes that the unicorn’s horn holds magical properties that could cleanse poisoned waters and render the sick able again. Of course, you could only find them using a virgin. She would wander the forests until the unicorn, smelling the scent of virgin flesh, would greet her with his big hard spiralled horn . . .

LAST UNICORN

Today the unicorn has been reduced to the world animated child fantasy and nursery rhymes, but thousands of years ago, the Ancient Greeks didn’t just believe in the creatures as mythical beings, but as full fledge creatures which they studied and recorded in their natural history texts. We can also find mentions of the animal and its supernatural strength in various books of The Bible.

So, I guess the mystery is just bound to live on. Perhaps Fule was just using his imagination, and jotting down his ideas for a “What-if” kind of situation, but with all that heavy illuminating (which would take months on end), its hard to believe there wouldn’t have been a specific need for a Unicorn recipe. Also note that “COOKING” as we know it today, was much more of a magical and mystical art, especially in the Medieval times and Renaissance; an art that would run parallel to that of alchemy and other sacred knowledge practices.

Many grimoires from the same period will contain recipes for food alongside the details to invocating spirits, so perhaps Fule was not only a reputable chef, but was somewhat of a magician, who knew secrets, such as where to source Unicorn, and the advantages and benefits to eating it . . .

EOF- How to Cook A Unicorn 3

The idea of eating a unicorn definitely is kind of gross, but I’m sure with the proper preparation it would be tolerable – or just skip the meal and steal the horn from the kitchen wench. Did they once cook Unicorn meat for the King & Queens of England?  It’s still a toss-up for me. What do YOU think?

{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!

{STYLE STORY} E.O.F. Presents “DAZE OF BEING WILD”

Enjoy this {STYLE STORY} offering  from THE EYE OF FAITH!

A journey that started at night, this is a tale of wandering; wandering thoughts, wandering hearts, and wandering souls.

The city can bring together strangers, while it can also tear those closest apart. Amongst the storefronts, sidewalks, lane ways, and hidden passages – you are bound to find that sacred recluse you have been seeking to find.

Inspiration was taken from wild nights had late at night on the street, rebel gang boys and bad girls of the 1950s, “Rebel Without a Cause“, and the work of film master Wong Kar Wai. We threw it all together  for one hell of a wild ride on the neon streets and shadows of the Junction.

As promised, we decided to preview some of our women’s collection in this shoot so all our faithful lady friends definitely have something to look forward to! We will be photographing and adding our women’s wear over the next few weeks, so keep your {EYE}s open on our {SHOP}.

We were also lucky enough to have our good friend Lydia join us for a shoot, which was more than a pleasure! She is a fantastic model with amazing abilities, so it was pure magic to have her with us on set. Lots of love, Lydia! Lots of love!

So enough messing around, please take part and check  it all out! After all, we made this for you!

Let E.O.F. take you to the “DAZE OF BEING WILD“.

Hope you all enjoy!

Would love to hear your feedback on the photos and looks, so please leave your comments below. Make sure to let your friends know what they are missing!

Krampus Christmas Time! Santa’s Personal Devil Side-Kick Might Just Be Visiting a House Near You . . .

Krampus4

You better not shout. You better not cry. You better not pout, I’m telling you why . . . Krampus is coming to town!

That’s right, kids! Hide under your blankets, and seal your window tight, because this Holiday Season not only calls for the arrival of our good friend St. Nick, but along with the classic jolly do-gooder also comes his hungry devil friend!

No, my words are not tied. You heard it right! A devil friend! Every year for many hundreds of years, European tradition has depicted a very cruel and very hideous counterpart to Santa known as Krampus.

P1020939

Krampus is pretty much your stereotypical vision of the devil: red fur, horns, claws, even a weird sick little tongue he likes to stick out. Best part of all is he likes to carry around chains to beat and whip the kids that get in his way!!!

Throughout Northern Italy, Austria, and other parts of Europe, people celebrate Krampusnacht in honor of this holiday beast. Party-goers dress up as demons, devils, and witches, masquerading through the town intoxicated and terrifying adults and children, alike!

Gruppenbild Geigelstoa Pass Schleching

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Many people believe this tradition dates back thousands of years to Pagan traditions where both Krampus and Santa Clause can be seen in the archetypes of Old Man Winter and the Goat-Man. This must also be part of the whole SANTA = SATAN mythology.

Krampus isn’t a character you see anymore in the mainstream, but during the 19th Century and early 20th Century a huge craze for Krampus Greeting Cards swept Europe.

Surreal and a little cheeky, there is no avoiding the grim horror of such a devil beast actually torturing and even eating children for Christmas! But, seeing as this is The Eye of Faith, we thought some of these cards would be the perfect thing to share with our readers, and perhaps we may even start to see a resurgence! (This would make Krampus very happy . . .)

{Special Thanks to Morbid Anatomy for some of the Krampus pics . . . }

I always thought something was missing to the story of Christmas. Now it all seems to make (a bit more) sense . . .

Don’t forget to share these with your friends, and for more images and to learn more about the traditions of Krampus, please visit the official site!

Thanks for reading, and Happy Holidays!
