i’ve been watching the second season of the l word again. i love it so. some of my very favourite things of that season are jenny’s grotesque, surrealistic carnival scenes.
i’ve also been reading rick moody’s demonology & am going to a burlesque circus show tonight.

so of course i HAD to do something with all that twisted carnival-esque inspiration.


extended version in a treasury on etsy.


sea/mermaid themed.

i’ve always loved mermaids & been fascinated by sea life.
when i was a mini mara i wanted nothing more than to be a mermaid. once, i let a friend of mine convince me that mermaids existed. she said that they lived in the shells on the shore at her beach house. she said it was very unlikely that we would see them, since they died very easily if they came out of those shells. but they were there.
i filled my pockets with those shells. i would stare at them until my vision blurred, hoping i would catch a glimpse. i never did, of course. eventually i realized that it was just a fantastical lie. yet, all these years later, i’m still looking.


also in a treasury on etsy, with more items. feel free to check that out, click on the items & maybe even comment on there so more people will see this talented bunch.

i didn’t forget it this week! anyway, these are all from etsy, found searching for gypsy. i love gypsy-ish things ^-^ well, a certain kind of gypsy-ish.
