Addams Family

When I was a kid I absolutely loved the Addams Family. Still do now. I remember they repeated the black and white 60's series constantly and I was a huge fan of Wednesday, since she had Kitty Cat (a lion) and loved to dance. Lurch was also one of my favorite characters, and let's not even start with the deep love of Gomez and Morticia. So, although I know I have had my blog quite abandonned recently (but that is because I am documenting myself and studying way loads to make it many times better), yesterday that I was talking with a friend, it came out that would be super cool to become Morticia and Wednesday for a picture (we were itzy bitsy tipsy, on a friend reunion), so we got snapped with a cellphone camera that is quite decent, and the rest... well, was photoshop "magic". It is very rudimentary and I was just bending my knees to look shorter, so, the edition is not professional either. But here is the result. I hope you laugh.

What if Vogue was a dog magazine?

Here is my answer:
The model is my dog, I did it the other day when (as usual) I had nothing to do. 

And totally changing subject, here is my version of the Mad Hatter (Alice in Wonderland, by Lewis Carroll)
Would you like some tea? :)

Weird kid in a Weird World

I have never been considered "normal" by society (although we could have an extensive chat of what "normal" means), and now I like it, but when I was a kid, was a total nightmare not fitting absolutely anywhere. The other kids were not scared of me, but kept their distance considering me "eccentric", with very strange likes and manners.
I remember clearly how much I enjoyed instrumental music, and artsy films at a very young age, and that I could appreciate the ballet and the opera (to mention some things). My father was a musician so when I was around 4 years old I could perfectly distinguish between Bach, Mozart and Beethoven, and I also could solve over 500 pieces jigsaw puzzles and I was really good at playing chess (which is ironic because now I totally suck at chess).
I also remember that for some reason that my parents could never figure out, I loved classical paintings, and I found a collection of books that was amazing because it had stories for children, illustrated by classical painters (they adapted their paintings to make a story out of it), such as Van Gogh, Monet, Manet, El Greco, Picasso, and many more. I had to have them all. So, even though I could not read yet, I spent hours passing the pages of each book, memorizing the pieces and of course, the name of each painter. My favorite one was Picasso's. So, I must have been around 4 years old, and my mother and I were in some kind of expo (I remember the scene clearly) and there was this Picasso's reproduction. I was all excited and pointed at it screaming "Paloma!" (the name of the painting). All the people there, that were adults stared at me with "what the f...?" face... and a man came to my mom asking her if I had taken lessons. My mom said proud/blushed, that I memorized them all on my own. Then I kept on running, pointing at different pieces screaming the name of the painter.
However, I had a very dark side as a kid (I am not saying that dark is bad), always interested in horror, pain, dark stories, mythology (that can be very grim), and many other things, and all those secret likes joined me the rest of my life, until today... and the question was "why do I like horror (to try to say it with a word) so much?". And I think I am starting to solve the equation.

Stardust and Wisdom

I know I have been bad and it has been a time where I haven’t written anything… But I am back… kind of. First of all I wanna thank all the readers that subscribed even in my huge absent period and that kept on writing beautiful things to me, and if you are new as well, thank you so much for passing by.
The thing is that in the last couple of months, my life has been a rollercoaster, and I think I’ve learnt way much more about myself than I did ever before. I do still love photography, makeup, fashion, painting, animals and same old stuff, and I am gonna continue with the original project of this blog, that is exchange fashion from all over the world and also making friends. Many awesome people have added me to FB and I met a girl (just to mention one) that I feel I have known all my life, she is the best long distance friend someone can ever have (Miranda), same as other girls that always comment my entries, no matter how shallow they can be, and they always congratulate me for the good job (Janae is an awesome example).
And although I love my blog, all the blogs that I read, and creativity, because in my perception fashion is not just clothes or brands, but showing to everybody who you are by dressing (just as painting), I think this site needed a little twist.  And it is where I am working now.

Coming back soon!

Dear friends and readers: I know I've been out for a long time but I am coming back stronger than ever. It is just that I had a small surgery (nothing serious but still needed to recover) and found a job that was taking away a lot of my time (not bad because the job is OK and I was almost broke). I miss you all and I am coming back also to read all your wonderful blogs. Love you all!
