Burtonesque by Heart


*****

Naaah.. I'm not referring Burtonesque as the theme of this photo shoot (just yet..that's something I really want to do anyway).. it's more like being Burtonesque by heart. 

You know.. like.. being this cherry merry girl in spring-y tulip dress who enjoy stepping on a rubber-duck until it quacked and squeezed out of shape. A girl who preserve her puddle in mercury and paint it in pink, dragged it around, spray some sweet tender fragrant around its dead body and cram a pebble into its little mouth to keep it cutely open. 

Wearing a furry earmuff in the hottest day of spring just to stay in her solitude~ out of all the sound of the wild wide world. And just so you know, that earmuff might be made of eight little hamster's fur on each side, skinned alive using an apple knives, sewed carefully using the prettiest needle available. Eight living hamsters in each side of the earmuff.

She loves to keep the rainbow in a bubble as her precious hostage, just for herself. Never let anyone else enjoy its beauty. Not to mention her innocent happy smile as she skin the hamster, preserve little pets, and squeeze all the cutest thing under her heels.

Not Burtonesque enough for you? 

Well.. do watch all his darkly humorous and romantic movie and do read this book by Tim Burton: The Melancholy Death of Oyster Boy & Other Stories. And welcome to the world where Melon Boy's head stepped on into pieces, the world where a girl won a stare competition, or get disturbed by The Boy with Nails in His Eyes (even just by its title, no?)

Then, tell me, how Burtonesque are you?
