vampire weekend’s horchata will always remind me of the beach. while i was on vacation i listened to it over and over. i put our vacation video to the tune and now whenever i hear it i go straight back to anguilla. anyway, with a teasing of summer in new york, i couldn’t resist coming up with some looks inspired by the song. not exactly a character post but at least there are some parallels. enjoy.

in an homage to tim burton’s announcement, i give you the prince from sleeping beauty. most of us know the story from the walt disney version, prince phillip vanquishes maleficent to save princess aurora. the original however, isn’t quite the same. prince phillip is actually prince john, maleficent is actually his ogress mother and aurora has children. most of the details are laid out here in the original sleeping beauty post. anyway, i hope you enjoy prince john from sleeping beauty.

after tsarina alexandra yesterday, i figured i’d ride the revolutionary russia wave as far as i could. naturally, the most ‘editorial’ of all these cats would be rasputin. now i’m sure most of the people who read this blog are familiar with him from the anastasia movie. i hate to be the bearer of bad news but i don’t think he sold his soul for a vial of demon monsters to destroy the romanovs. rasputin was a mystic, some revered him as a prophet and others dismissed him as a lunatic. regardless of the public, tsarina alexandra turned to him to aid her son’s illness. rumors swirled around the tsarina and rasputin, but the czar refused to send him away for fear his beloved wife and son would feel betrayed. as his relationship with the royal family grew, so did his influence. ultimately driving the country’s nobles mad with jealousy and fear. and everybody knows what happens when you’re jealous and frightened enough. too bad for rasputin. please note: these captions are taken from this song

3: though she’d heard the things he’d done, she believed he was the holy healer who would heal her son: coat by burberry prorsum, shirt by neil barret, man-skirt and leggings by givenchy, boots by burberry prorsum
