disce mori

threads 2-1I'm finally getting around to posting the photoshoot that I collaborated with THREADS magazine and my friend/photographer Khrystyna Chekhlata. The editors asked me to contribute something, so I gathered up all of my pagan things and went to a deserted Jewish cemetary in Queens. The shoot was sort my way of expressing my leaning toward a more disheveled, less put together, less 'clean', less 'fashion' look. The shoot itself is entitled 'conjunction', a step in alchemy where the soul and body are conjoined, and it deals with fusion of opposites, death, rebirth, becoming one, etc. I don't want to dive too much into it- it's beter left to be analyzed on your own accord.. The Glenda the good witch outfit (white look) is this dress I found at Beacon's ( I don't really ever wear it unless its for a shoot), coyote pelt, and a necklace with weave, pearls, antler, string, and a freeze dried mouse that I compiled at the cemetary right before, and the wicked witch (black) look is a mongolian lamb fur pelt, Gareth Pugh fringe cardigan, and black 1to3 leggings with the DIY necklace... and a hair net worn as a mask.. I've also included a couple of the contact sheets that didn't make the magazine, but are still really beautiful. Khrystyna is fucking amazing..36676_400333046510_507936510_4786143_4741761_n36676_400333056510_507936510_4786145_2742651_n36676_400333051510_507936510_4786144_2781322_n36676_400333741510_507936510_4786185_6067743_nPicture 16Picture 55 ( was shown a really funny site called god hates goths))36676_400333746510_507936510_4786186_3610955_n36676_400333761510_507936510_4786187_1443615_nPicture 9Picture 31elizabeth_contact1004elizabeth_contact010

I love it! A great example of classic goth. It will never get old.
