+Dark Cabaret+ by ellaine +Dark Cabaret+ by ellaine
Come down and join the circus
It's the end of your world
Come down and join the circus
All you dead boys and girls
If you still have a pulse
We can remedy that
You can check your life
While you check your hat

Vermillion Lies - "Circus Apocalypse"

-------------------------------------------------------------------------

Because of Hannah Fury, The Dresden Dolls and ~vinegar , and a bit of Emiliana Torrini, I'm more and more into dark cabaret lately and victorian stylization.

The music creates the atmosphere, Tim Burton meets realism in my head and there you go - something neither realistic nor cartooni-sh, stylized and recalling the darker side of the story; done for the pure fun of drawing those clothes and creating the atmosphere. And probably because I was ill at that time...

But I hope that you will like it(:

And the 'live' version of the dress, made awesomely by ~LotD :
