My first ever official cosplay music video is live, featuring my C. Viper #cosplay. I had a lot of fun filming this because I had some amazing friends working on it with me. Midori Maejima (Instagram: da_mido) came in and styled my hair for this and Boo Stewart (Instagram: thebeautifulboo) did the videography and editing. I've never done something like this before, so it was a huge learning experience. But I had such a blast how could this be my last one? ;P I hope you guys enjoy it! Feel free to comment and share!
I can not say that I've never hurt anyone emotionally, I have multiple times because I was indecisive about things. They hurt me because they were in lust. I can't take back what I did and it still haunts me everyday it seems. That's also part of why I got back into modeling, to keep myself busy and distracted. My heart still hurts from what we did. It wasn't healthy. When dating someone, it shouldn't hurt you. They shouldn't say mean things just for the hell of it or do things and try to cover it up. When do you give up on the person you love? After dealing with all their shit. I don't even know what to say. When am I gonna be happy?
St. Marks place has been the hub of nyc goth and punk fashion since the 70s, although the past few years have shown a significant change in the area. Once by one the alternative stores have dropped off, being replaced by fast food and japanese restaurants. Perhaps the most recognizable alternative store, 'Trash and Vaudeville', has decided to move locations after 40 years.
Like many other cities, NYC has been a victim of gentrification and the rising real-estate market which seems to price out anything artistic and alternative. Besides the downfall of St Marks, every month we have news of another music venue that has shut down because it just couldn't afford to pay rent. Not to mention the VF store closing after 3 years in business.
As much as we love NYC, it is sad that it is being increasingly less affordable, and losing its artistic character. The artists and alternative kids made the east village a fun place, thereby increasing the real-estate value and then the alternative kids couldn't afford to live there anymore. They got pushed out to brooklyn and queens and jersey, and even some of these parts have become overpriced.
I see a lot of my friends moving away from NYC to more affordable places and each time it makes me contemplate that maybe it's time to move. Maybe it's time to move to detroit and snatch up some cheap property, just like Galapagos art space But alas NYC is still home.
Much love to the Trash and Vaudeville crew for keeping subculture fashion alive.
No one person can deal with this creature we've become.
A creature of sorrow and lamenting. No line showing where one thing ends and something else begins. A broken view on our fellow man. No trust, paranoia, but a great hunger for a love that is always denied us because in order to love us you have to love all of us... not many can carry this load and even fewer willingly help us carry it. Some think they help but they are slowly adding straw to the top as we walk
