"Albeit, daresay I, the lullaby of an everso dark sleep.
R: My precious,
Likest thou what emergeth yon the distant?
The throbbing and breathing of life's machinery!
LK: Wanion it's oh so damndest soul!
With the devil-instrument it we shall reap,
After the banquet obscur'd in our thole,
Its blood so lovingly across our faces smear
Lord of carnagel,
R: Lady of carnagel,
LK: One funeral maketh many,
R: Swarm god's acres;
LK: Two indeed more:
Blest treat of delight -
R: Give praise for the blood it bled,
Grant a rose for the dead!"

Well this is rather creepy, not that dreamy sort I'm used to with your work, this is the phantom that remains when the light comes on. Heh. I love how the subject has such a vibrant shine, makes one think that the 'light' isn't such a savior. My favorite part is the candle holder, something about the whole scene makes it appear more like a skeletal hand with flaming claws. The portrait-esque set up of this really adds to the creep factor, over posed and centered stuff carries with it the mannequin kind of creepy, heh, by the time the viewer is deciding whether or not she's real she's already dragged them into the scene. The light source you have here, the spotlight look, is interesting, as though the scene is something you've found with a flash light...yeah, I could picture the batteries going out soon after, followed by a scream.

:D Whoops. All by accident I assure. I was just experimenting and...I guess I might have been watching to many horror films that day. :rofl:

hehe. Thank you!! :tighthug:

The candle holder is defiantly my favorite part of this. And now that you mention it, it does sort of resemble a hand. :XD:
Wow you have quit the imagination. How you picture all of that, from this is beyond me. I feel over praised, thank you very much though! :hug:

I'm still trying to wrap my brain around specifically why black and white vertical stripes are so 'gothy', I get the black and white tiles on a floor makes one feel as though they're but a pawn standing on a giant board game, but the only connection I can make with the stripes is that they have great impact and could very well be considered in much the way prison bars are...ha, could make one feel a bit 'institutionalized'. As for how I can picture that kinda stuff, maybe you're not the only one watching too many horror movies! lol, but seriously the same goes for your imagination when I see the stock you used, especially with the photograph hanging on the wall, at a glance it seems almost like a random detail, but such things have a way of speaking of the past, typically pivotal in the 'haunted house' scene, the angelic figure marred by time and tinted icy blue seems to reflect the subject of the image, something beautiful...altered, infected, dare I say possessed. Well, I can ramble on and on, but you're the cause of it!

Eh? I don't quit get it either, and I dwell in this culture.
I always thought it had something to do with Victorian art. There are a lot of stripes present there. :shrug:
It seems you've put a lot of thought in it though. hehe.
Oh man now I'm really curious.

Oh thank goodness I am not alone! horrah for horror movies!!

Oh I see. Thank you again!

hehe :rofl: Well that's okay, I enjoy your ramblings. ;p

I never really noticed any stripes in Victorian art, or interior design for that matter...most wallpaper was rather elaborate and ornamental. I do recall it was present in fashion, though, primarily for men's trousers probably to make them look narrower/taller...same thing is recommended to women in current fashion mags to look thinner. Perhaps an image obsession? I think stripes and checkered patterns were more prominent in 1950s America...that era was scary enough to seem 'goth'. lol
Great, now every time I see stripes I'll have a mental break-down. :D

You know you're probably right. I don't know much about Victorian art, I just assumed strips were a popular feature because of how often they show in Victorian goth clothing ...
:iconfacepalmplz: But it probably has more to do with the 'goth' aspect than the 'Victorian'. :rofl: I honestly don't know though.

Man this is really bothering me now... :/

Yes maybe the 50's. :nod:

Eh...I think you're not alone on that.

I was think'n the same thing, that Victorians pretty much invented vertical stripes, it's one of those things that's so widely "known". I think I'll go with the theory that anything geometric and b/w instills a crushing sense of institutionalization, it's just too orderly, too conformist and that definitely reminds me of the Victorian era. Seems like the best link I'm going to get out of it!
