Façade: Venusian Day


It’s Friday 13, my birthday (insert #gothpoints :D). Yay, for another spin around the solar system! Earth has graced the week with showering skies. Tropical May rain is the best gift!
This is an out-take from a video series I’m working on which involves wearable makeup (the video for this one was a mess but at least I have pictures!).

Façade: Catacomb Kittens

Vision: Duende


Duende is an umbrella term for pixies, goblings and/or fairies in Puerto Rico. “¡Malditos duendes!” cursed an old man when things in his house disappeared out of the blue.

There was a ludic and mysterious quality to these trickster creatures.
