Goblin Market Inspired Look // Hannabal Marie

Hello ladies and gents
I am bringing you another lovely makeup look/Art concept.
This one is inspired by one of my favorite poems:
Goblin Market

"Come buy our orchard fruits,
Come buy, come buyyy..."

Basically, to sum up the story...
Two sisters; Laura and Lizze.
They hear the sounds of the goblin fruit market from their house.
At first they try to ignore the enticing calls of the goblin men 
but eventually Laura decides to go out and see what's happening.
They entice her and she eats from the fruit. 

They leave and never return to her, 
but her sister Lizze starts to hear the sounds and asks her sister if she hears it, too...
to which Laura says she can not.
Lizze gets caught up in the call and ends up in the same boat as Laura 
but her ending is a bit more chaotic. 

She sees her sister being so sad and depressed about not being able to hear the call 
and tries to go out and buy some fruit for her forlorn sister 
only to have the goblin men threaten her to eat the fruit herself 
and not to take it back to her sister. 
She tries to bring some back, but the Goblin men attack her and end up...
ehem...doing things to her...ehem. 

I don't recall the full ending but basically, she goes back home all bruised and beaten
and that is where the story ends.
There is a meaning behind this poem, a reason behind this story--
but I shall leave the deciphering for you to do and just keep this strictly art. lol

Also, I probably chopped up the story but the gist is there.
If you are curious about it, I put a link to the full poem in the title name above.

Anyways, here are my photos that were inspired by the poem. 

I handmade all the "goblin men" on my shoulders and head out of paper mache.
I looked up some art examples of this poem and the vintage takes on it really stood out to me the, I wanted to keep the feel of that specific art style in my work.

Clown Doll Hugs (A welcome to the family I am collecting!) // Hannabal Marie

Hello ladies and gents
Today is a mini photoshoot with some of my dolls I recently got at various thrift store trips.

I just want to say that I am sooooo damn happy I got to find and own all of the dolls I seen total.

I was so scared that they'd cost a fortune when I seen them and in my head, 
I was narrowing down my fav of the three...
but when I seen the price they were selling them at, I nabbed them all at once. lol

Anywho, I could rant and rant about nothing all day but I shall just skip the introductions and go straight into the showcase.
