More from Art of Darkness

Hello Lovelies:

As promised, here is the tour from Art of Darkness at Soulard Art Gallery!

Friend and model Jacqueline Brown came by to take a few pics with the art. She’s featured in the piece on the top right, “Creating Anna”, which is from the vampire short of the same name.

All the pieces in the show are for sale! And…Yes, more Halloween fun stuff is coming!

As always, thank you for reading,

Victoria

Halloween Adventures

Hello Lovelies:

Ok, I’m finally blogging more about all my fun Halloween adventures. Halloween day I was at the Museum, than ran over to the Magic Chef Mansion for a Halloween tour. More of that in the next blog.

Here is video of the most gorgeous Halloween afternoons I can remember in a long time. I shot the ride from the Magic Chef Mansion onto the Soulard Art Gallery:

It’s a FAB view of the city landscape, full of Victorian architecture and stunning autumn leaves.

As always, thank you for reading,

Victoria

Victorian Mourning Society Tour

Hello Lovelies:

I hope everyone enjoyed Halloween and Samhain weekend! I was so busy that I’m going to break it down into four parts (at least).

Part one: The Campbell House Museum Twilight Tour with the St. Louis Mourning Society on Friday, October 30th. Fun was had by all as we discussed mourning traditions of the Victorians with a first floor tour of the Museum.

Here are some wonderful photos of the event:

Below: gentlemen from Bellefontaine Cemetery talking about the Campbell plot in the Carriage House. The pumpkin is carved with the “RC” of the Robert Campbell logo.I’m wearing a genuine Vintage Victorian Spanish comb.Doorways were draped in black to discourage salesmen from visiting houses in mourning.Above, the mirrors and heads/statuary are covered in black to encourage spirits to go to the light and not inhabit any human like fixtures. The Victorians also believed the first person to see their reflection after the death, would be the next to die.

Below: In the parlor, a mock coffin of Robert Campbell.

More Halloween adventures coming!

As always, thank you for reading,

Victoria

In the Thick of It…Halloween Season 2020!

Hello Lovelies:

It’s my favorite time of year. Of course with Covid, things have been push/pull all year. I’ve had to cancel or move all kinds of activities, and of course, my biggest shows were shut down. To keep my sanity during these crazy times, I really had to narrow it all down to what I could really do well and what I really didn’t want to do at all. I also got my flu shot and some nasty bug bites that put behind schedule.

Art of Darkness opens today, and I intend to go get a peek at it!

As promised, here’s the original costume video (from 2019) which is the base for the La Catrina in the show:

Plus other videos from last years costumes!

https://youtu.be/d2qIWcWuiPU

Then the changes I made: I revamped the head dress. I mounted it on a new hat, added more flowers, and repainted it and the dress with day-glo colors. I also altered the bustle and added lace to it and the dress. I made new mask and choker and added the shoes.

So this weekend, I absolutely narrowed down to finishing an online class and preparing for events that are next weekend (more on that in a moment).

I took joy in making some fun food for me:

Chili Mac:

Some doctored up Totino’s pizza:

And home made pumpkin spice crispas:

I’m sharing some of the cutest and funniest Halloween stuff on social media to boost my mood. Check out my links below to see them!

Next weekend I have TWO events at the Campbell House Museum:

https://fb.me/e/3Bf6jWjrJ

https://fb.me/e/a9wugTnXh

AND an online Samhain event, details coming soon!

As always, thank you for reading,

Victoria

Art of Darkness Preview!

Hello Lovelies:

With many of my usual large gatherings cancelled due to Covid, I submitted three pieces to “Art of Darkness” at Soulard Art Gallery here in St. Louis!

There isn’t an “opening” party, but the gallery will be open for its regular hours from 10/23-11/20!

Here’s a preview of my pieces:

Jacqueline Brown as “Creating Anna” above.

Myself as Emma of “The Long Moonlight”

And lastly, pieces I completely rehabbed from last year, “La Catrina”:

I hope you can make it over to the gallery if you’re in the area anytime soon! My next blog will feature some of the creative process with this and other costumes from last year.

As always, thank you for reading,

Victoria
