Tim Burton


Tim Burton exhibit at the MOMA = my heart swelling to the point of bursting inside my chest with excitement! The exhibit starts this Sunday Nov. 22. and goes until April 26th 2010. For the show, curators Jenny He and Ron Magliozzi raided Burton’s curiosity cabinets for more than 500 photographs, paintings, doodles, storyboards, stories, sculptures, and sketches dating back to his student years at the California Institute of the Arts. Many have nothing to do with the films he’s directed. Some are on canvas, many on notebook paper. Quite a few are on cocktail napkins. “Sometimes these things look like they’re just weird,” Burton says, “but I don’t keep a journal or a diary. They help me to remember a certain feeling—they become time capsules.”(NYMag).

If I wasn't already excited about this exhibit Harpers Bazaar went ahead and did a shoot with photographer Tim Walker titled "Tim Burtons Magical Fashion." Here are the photos:










Alexander McQueen meets Tim Burton?? Seriously how much more perfect could it be??????

Citizens Band



So a couple of weeks ago I went to see an amazing performance done by no other than the Citizens Band. Who as Paper Mag describes them "are the contemporary New York equivalent of a merry roving band of Victorian gypsy vaudevillians, if Victorian gypsy vaudevillians were political activists who fought against war and in favor of universal health care."

Not only were the costumes absolutely amazing, and the cast star studded with people such as Karen Elson, Sarah Sophie Flicker, and Zoey Deschanel but the performance was like nothing I have ever seen. The play was called "A Debt Rattle" which takes place during the 1920s and is a dance off between the characters for a place to stay for the night. Each actor took turns telling his or her story with their performance, there were even some acrobatics involved! If you want to check them out some more I posted the link to their website below the photographs. If you are ever given the chance they are definitely worth seeing!

Halloween anticipation

Only three days left until Halloween and I can hardly stand the excitement. I have been working furiously on my costume the past couple of weeks, and enjoying as many fall festivities as possible. I am sure that I have single handedly rented every scary movie from netflix over the course of the month. Favorites so far have been Let the Right One in, Amityville Horror, Nosferatu, and Vertigo. I also can't stop listening to the Donnie Darko soundtrack, its so perfectly fall and halloween. Especially this one




So since I am obviously in the halloween spirit, here are a few photos that seem like the perfect way to set the mood.
