Not entirely sure why I didn't post last Halloween pictures right after we took them, guess I got way too caught up with the school stuff and then I forgot. Yet this year I celebrated my favorite day again, and it feels weird to miss a whole shoot inbetween, so let's say this is a double Halloween thing this year (no such thing as enough when it comes to that anyway). So this is the costume and photoshoot from last year - first time I didn't exactly recreate some specific persona or a character, but instead went with what I felt like creating at the moment. Someone later told me it had a Scathach vibe from AHS and I like the idea actually. The Witch of the Woods. Also, we actually made my mom drive us to an actual forest with an armchair and all that stuff. Good times. So enjoy and this year's Halloween is on it's way soon. Happy treat or tricking and get your witch on tonight!
So it turns out all I had to do in order to find some spare time to post something here was to break my hand and get stuck at home, and I decided to dig out some last year NYC streetstyle.
I can't believe it's been a whole year since I took those, and even though I really miss this place looking at all those beautiful crazy people makes it a bit better.
Most of the pics here has been taken in Dumbo, Brooklyn during a weekend vintage fair where I had to be pretty strict for myself because otherwise I'd spent every dollar I had and most likely also a kidney.
Good ol' days.
I thought typing with only my right hand would be a bit easier than it actually is. Damn.
A year ago, when those pics were taken (actually, a bit more than this), I was on a weekend trip with a friend, to visit her new Uni on it's open days (oh, the days when Uni seemed like a other solar system). In fact, we went in for like 20 minutes, and strolled around the city for the rest of our time there. The best part was definitely the fact that our hostel shared a floor with a strip club, the exotic vibe of that is unforgettable. Also, we bought supermarket sushi and we kept it on a windowsill outside, plus it turned out to be disgusting. Some memories fade, but the one about such a crime on a fish never will.
I notice how weirdly times go by sometimes; I don't feel like it was long ago, yet I can't relate to how life felt back then 100%. And that's hella good in context of, for example, stuff like high school finals as I'd rather set myself on fire or something extreme like that than do this again. Still, I realized how some things feel closer to current day than the others, no matter the passed time. It's kind of like every person creates their own spacetime based on unique experiences and how they value each occurancy differently. Minds are cool, man.
We went to some kind of mirror labyrinth back then, and even though we've heard it's smaller than expected, ergo, dissapointing, I recommend giving some time to places like that and you can really zone yourself out of any sense of orientation. And bump into mirrors like some kind of selfmade maniac, fun 101. And we took some pics while we were at it.
The boys are back in town aka I'm trying to do stuff here instead of being lazy and binge watching Netflix (I had like, a bunch of exams recently and I think my body is trying to bounce back after a month of sleeping very few hours a day and existing on pizza and energy drinks. and coffee. and some other not exactly healthy stuff).
So right now I'm trying to basically get my life back on track, and while sorting out thousands of pics I found this old thing (and I probably should get around all that quicker cause damn soon I'll be like "yeah those are from a year ago" and I do not necessarily want that to happen).
University is fun, because basically it's like some mad scientist's experiment of putting a bunch of people officially labeled as "adults", but practically as far away from that term as it is humanly possible and trying to get them to figure out what they're supposed to do, and like, how not to spend all your money on wine (don't ask me tho).
So we just float around trying to make the best out of it, with like, 15 minutes breakdown every half of an hour because how, for the love of jfc, am I supposed to write an exam if I've attented the lecture once this semester (and only because it was too cold to go outside and I wanted to sleep in the meantime)?
But it also does get you some creativity skills, like "how to make a meal when you have an egg, peanut butter and one quarter of a bell pepper in your fridge; a poem by me".
Anyways, it's cool in the survival mode kind of way.
Also I just signed up for so many extra classes that I just can't wait to complain about how much work I have to do. Oh, the possibilities.
