People fear death even more than pain. It’s strange that they fear death. Life hurts a lot more than death. At the point of death, the pain is over. Yeah, I guess it is a friend.

Post-Mortem Photography

What is post-mortem photography?

Post mortem photography is the taking a photo of a loved on. Usually they are propped up to look alive while the family or individuals pose with them or they are given the aspect that they are soundly asleep lost in dream land. According to my research, it was quite popular during the Victorian Era.

Why do it?

A memorial to the loved ones passed.

Is it still around today?

The answer is yes. In a few places around the world this practice is still done today. The popularity however has gone down due to the fact that instead of viewing this as a piece of memory – society has made it into a dark/creepy/serial killer sort of thing. When in reality, that’s not what it is.

My views on Post Mortem Photography:

I don’t have an issue with it. If you take your time to Google images (I wont post them here in case individuals that read this are sensitive to the imagery), you can see how lovely the photographs are. Most of the time you can’t even tell the person is deceased. It’s an art-like way to pay homage to the darling that has passed. It doesn’t make you a sick individual for wanting one last image with your family. Or maybe that’s just me. I think our modern society has the strong ability to take something so human and lovely and make it into something ugly and horrid.

Vampira – My Idol

0

Hello Creeps.

People have been asking me about my idols lately. Needless to say, there are plenty of people that I can relate to and look up to, but I would have to say at number one stands the lovely Vampira. Why can I relate to a 1950s Horror Hostess? Easily. Personality wise, I can relate to the character and the eerie Mailia Nurmi herself. The elegance of the character has always drawn me to it. Elegance, class, humor dark as night. Very relatable to me.

In the 1980s, Nurmi was hired again to revive the Vampira character but quit… and thus the Hoochie Elvira came about. (Don’t you dare ask my opinion about Elvira… you’ll just get a rant.)

I apologize for the short blog. I’m running behind on schedule than I usually am, and I have to run.
