If you've never seen it....Paris is Burning

A must see for everybody. Paris is Burning is a documentary filmed in New York in the late 80's all about the infamous 'Vogue Ball'. It depicts the 'Golden Age' of drag balls attended by the 'children' of the 'Houses' which is bascially a gay fashion gang. Unbelieveably touching the film covers everything from HIV and AIDs to shop lifting the next 'must-have' look.

The Arbour of Love ♡ Niki Pilkington

I could look at Niki's work ALL the livelong day. She's got such an amazing style. Recently we have noticed a HUGE influx in female portrait illustrators. And a lot of them appear to be trying (and failing) to bite Niki's style. Her work has such an individuality to it. Go take a look at her site it's a real treat for the eyes..
