Pierrotte Halloween Costume

This is a beautiful costume and photo. Here's the note, and a link to the blog:

"For Halloween I wanted a costume that people wore in the past before the packaged costumes that are consumed by masses today. After a little research I came upon the Pierrotte, a sad clown that was used as a stock character of mime and Commedia dell'Arte. I saw pictures of this clown everywhere - it was the hippie costume of its time! My location in this picture, the Exorcist Steps in Georgetown, D.C.

Dress: vintage 60's
Black Belt: no idea
Hat: handmade
Black Mary Jane Heels: Style & Co."

Lady Gaga inspired Halloween costume 2008

Photo note:

"I decided to be Lady Gaga for Halloween in 2008, cause I had just fallen in love with her stuff a few months before, and couldn't help it. I didn't have $ to make the costume, so I just used whatever I already had. Hope some ppl like it."

Looks good to me~

Tuesday Tattoo - Mobius

Mobius Tattoo, originally uploaded by Spacemanbobby.

Photo note:

""A twist in the fabric of space where time becomes a loop"

This is the Mobius Tattoo. A scientific calculation that can be used in Astrophysics to describe a closed system if gravity is strong enough to bend spacetime into a loop. Basically meaning that if you travel far enough, you will end up where you began without really knowing it.

This is my first Tattoo and it turned out great. This is on the inside of my Right Bicep. I will be adding another space or scientific tattoo to my other bicep next year. And yes... certain parts of the Tattoo process hurt like a son of a gun...Look at the note to where it hurt a lot. :)"
