With the couture shows coming up, I figured now would be a good time to look at them through the eyes of the original 150 Pokémon. To be honest, it’s fairly simple to find them in couture…maybe a little too simple. Next time you’re looking at a collection, think about it and see what happens. There are at least 5 Vileplumes every season.
1. Giambattista Valli and Ivysaur
2. Jean Paul Gaultier and Alakazam
3. Chanel and Clefable
4. Alexis Mabille and Vaporeon
5. Christian Dior and Chansey
Everybody has come across a Veruca Salt in their lives. You know the type: bitchy, rich and ungrateful. Makes me mad just thinking about it. You’ll remember Veruca from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, she’s the greedy brat that always wants more. First she wants a golden ticket, then she wants a golden goose then she starts yammering on about some bean feast and 10,000 tons of ice cream. Of course, like all imbalanced children that visit Willie Wonka’s factory, she gets her just desserts AND I AIN’T TALKIN’ CHOCOLATE.

So, knowing how big of a fan of Twilight I am, this post has been a long time coming. Like Bram Stoker’s vampires, Anne Rice’s are pretty badass. One of the the most interesting is Claudia. Unlike the rest of her kind, Claudia was made a vampire before she was an adult which leaves her to be a child for eternity. At first, that’s cool and her vampire fathers Lestat and Louis spoil her to no end. She ensnares her prey by being an angelic young child, often lost or in need. She murders at will and without care, ugh, kids. As decades wear on, Claudia becomes frustrated that she’ll never experience life as an adult. Her frustration turns to blind rage and she murders Lestat (but he don’t die!) and she and Louis flee to Europe to find more about their vampire roots. In Paris, the pair revel in culture and the arts before finding a troupe of vampires who pretend to be humans who pretend to be vampires to trick their prey. After it is revealed that Louis and Claudia killed Lestat, the theatrical vampires condemn Claudia to death by sunshine. I hate sunshine too. For those concerned for Louis, he lives, but is forever haunted by the death of Claudia. Try to keep in mind what a spoiled child with really good taste would wear…

Enjoy this? Fine, here’s more vampires for ya:
I saw Black Swan and thought it was pretty tops. The movie is based around a young ballerina who is dancing the lead in Swan Lake. The story behind this ballet is pretty simple. A young prince runs away from his kingdom to escape an arranged marriage. In search of love he comes upon a lake full of swans and is startled by featheredish girl (paging Kanye West), Odette. Turns out, Odette was a princess who was turned into a swan by the evil sorcerer Von Rothbart and the lake is actually made of her parents’ tears, way harsh Tai. Long story short, to break the curse the prince must marry Odette. Fearful he might lose control over his prisoner, Von Rothbart disguises his daughter Odile as a black swan who tricks the prince into marriage. Forlorn with heartbreak despite the apologies of her prince, Odette jumps to her death and drowns in her lake. I think that’s how it goes anyway, my ballet knowledge is a little rusty.
