This is a sci-fi B-movie gem that we needed to bring attention to! A great adventure at the edge of the universe with the sexy Sybil Danning, yes please. Ambitious costumes, dreamy design, great fun.
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.”
A human being is only breath and shadow.
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?
Monsters, moths and transformation! The second we saw this editorial from Love magazine, with photography by Tim Walker, we knew it would fit right in at The Eye of Faith. Model Kristen McMenamy never ceases to impress us with her seasoned effortless modelling style and pure edginess. Arachnophobes beware, with art direction by Katie Grand, this one is sure to creep you out.
With Vintage pieces by Dior, some chain mail headdresses from the Royal National Theater and of course, Alexander McQueen, we get a sense of Joan of Arc mixed with Buffy the Vampire Slayer. We wouldn’t want to kick this hornets nest.
“He who fights with monsters might take care lest he thereby become a monster. Is not life a hundred times too short for us to bore ourselves?”
