So, this was a tricky one to write. I hadn’t really thought the writing part through when I was planning the photo shoot. Like I said, there isn’t any reliable information on Vera, not even a snippet of something she may have said to a reporter. If there are public records out there that prove her existence, no one has ever made them easily accessible.
So to create Vera’s character I had to get really creative. I’m used to going off of something, so starting from scratch was quite difficult. I did some reading on dependent personality disorders and the history of jealousy. I essentially crafted Vera’s character out of various academic and historical texts.
Then — the other tricky part — how to reference a life that didn’t exist? I’ve made Vera a spirit-like character in this story. She exists because the idea of her was brought into the world — and I don’t eliminate the possibility that she may have been real. But because her legacy is essentially no more than her crimes, this is really all she knows and all she can talk about. She’s stuck in a sort of purgatory that society has built around her.
Hope you’ll enjoy this one! 💋🖤

“His is life as you now live it and have lived it, you will have to live once more and innumerable times more, and there will be nothing new in it, but every pain and every joy and everything unutterably small or great in your life will have to return to you.” -Mary Di Lucia quoting Nietzsche in her book, Accompaniments
I’m not sure the history of this funeral/memorial photograph, saw it at the Morbid Anatomy Library in Green-Wood .

A few of my favorite things 🎶 #vintage #antique #victorianmourning

Some days I really miss this piece. But I know it is loved and safe with @oldgoldobsession.

Still alive 😎 I just no longer use this account anymore, instead I update my art account @themourningmoon daily, which is more of a weird compilation of history, death, and oddities in art than me posting my actual artwork haha so if you find that stuff interesting go check it out

Brought some essentials on my trip for good luck: the “From Dust To Dust” coffin ring is personal collection but available as a made-to-order in my shop, as are the “Witch” banner necklace, victorian mourning rings and cuff. The vintage diamond moon ring is personal collection. Off to enjoy some sunshine and run all over LA for business meetings 🏃🏻‍♀️
