Boys and girls of every age
Wouldn’t you like to see something strange?
Come with us and you will see
This, our town of Halloween
This is Halloween, this is Halloween
Pumpkins scream in the dead of night
This is Halloween, everybody make a scene
Trick or treat till the neighbors gonna die of fright
It’s our town, everybody scream
In this town of Halloween
[A Nightmare before Christmas]
Taylor Wassep, founder and creative head behind the THEMA Magazine had a brilliant idea, which I totally fell in love with.
(Click HERE to find the latest issue of THEMA magzine)
For his latest issue of THEMA, he had the idea to use one of Shakespeare’s works and then interpretate it in a Tim Burton inspired way.
You can imagine how straight that went to my heart with my Tim Burton addiction…
So for my pictures I chose Hamlet. Since I wanted to bring the head of Jack Skellington into my pics, becasue I totally love that character, it seemed the perfect match 😉
Even more happy I was when Taylor asked me if I would like to be the cover girl for this special issue and if I could style another look. Together with Tempest Rosca who took the picture, we decided to give a try on Lady McBeth 😉 The outcome you can see on the very last picture of this post.
I hope you can see the fun I had with those special pictures and how dear they became to me.
Thank you again Taylor for such an amazing theme for the THEMA Magazine and that I again was allwed to be part <3
The mastermind behind some of the most iconic art styling and modern filmmaking – Tim Burton, magically crafts story line thought the guise of whimsical fantasy mixed with overtones of dark elements. The result being a masterful experience that only Tim Burton can create. Likewise, William Shakespeare is thought of to be the greatest English writer in all of history. He too, created works of art that cast it’s character in to dark turmoil and suffering. For the enjoyment of it’s audience and unknowing the modern world. Combining these two creative geniuses pays homage to their brilliance in both writing and style. Please enjoy, Shakesburton
