DARK ROMANCE

No costumes or anything like that jumping out of my blog on Halloween (in fact, I've never been a fan of Halloween even though dressing up is something I enjoy doing). Most "image clipping" blogs I follow have started posting their own halloween spook-boards (..spooky moodboards, a term I created out of a random conversation with my friend the other day).. So I thought I'd post my personal selection for today.
Tim Walker's usually the master of the extravagant romantic fashion photographs, yet I find this November editorial from Harper's Bazaar Indonesia just as enchanting. Showcasing a series of Indonesian designer's works, Michael Pondaag styled this shoot using cutting-edge safety pin tops and heavy-blinged skulls while juxtaposing it with soft and feminine makeup.. See, Halloween doesn't always equal to tarty or gruesome get-ups right?

Sppok-board.. I like that. I am actually a Halloween fan simply because if I had my way, I would be a belly dancer, Egyptian queen, or Hawaiian dancer every day of my life.
