toska [tohs-kah]

(noun) A Russian word – “Vladmir Nabokov describes it best: ‘No single word in English renders all the shades of toska. At its deepest and most painful, it is a sensation of great spiritual anguish, often without any specific cause. At less morbid levels it is a dull ache of the soul, a longing with nothing to long for, a sick pining, a vague restlessness, mental throes, yearning. In particular cases it may be the desire for somebody or something specific, nostalgia, love-sickness. At the lowest level it grades into ennui, boredom.’” (via ancient-serpent)

"Don’t dream it, be it."

The Rocky Horror Picture Show (1975)

…and finally, a tribute to our days of 90’s goth clubbing. Wardrobe and boots courtesy of kambriel, nostalgia courtesy of the both of us, and of course vburnham patiently channeling our nostalgia in a Peter Murphy-esque way.

This counts as a throwback Thursday, right? Originally shot for Dark Beauty Magazine issue 34.

This was such a fun shoot & Van was a great sport indulging our old-school whims! Featured designs:
Velvet Top, Cobweb Cabaret Boa, Fairy Cobweb Skirt,
and
Crushed Velvet Leggings

OH MY GOSH I THOUGHT THE MODEL LOOKED FAMILIAR!!!! You look amazing Van Burnham!

A woman drew her long black hair out tight
And fiddled whisper music on those strings
And bats with baby faces in the violet light
Whistled, and beat their wings
And crawled head downward down
a blackened wall
And upside down in air were towers
Tolling reminiscent bells, that kept the hours
And voices singing out of empty cisterns and exhausted wells.

T.S. Eliot, from The Wasteland (What the Thunder Said)
