The phantom room, the ghost sisters and the white rabbit

As the countdown to Halloween begins today, I decided to start with Maria, aka chocolatcake, her deathly pale Blythes and their fantasy world.

The phantom room

This room, called “the phantom room” is absolutely stunning. Every detail is carefully conceived to create magic. The white bunny on the Penny-farthing seems to refer to the White Rabbit in  Alice in Wonderland, where Alice enters a surreal, colorful and ingenuous world populated by peculiar and anthropomorphic creatures. That kind of environment can also appear very disturbing, or even frightening, and we feel the same duality here.

Olvido and the white bunny

The color work on hair reminds me of a painting from Edvard Munch, a Norwegian Symbolist painter and an important forerunner of expressionistic art.

Olvido

The name of the redhead is Olvido, phantom of Maria’s oldest daughter, while the girl with pink hair is Recuerdo, the ghost of Maria’s youngest daughter. As you can see on the last picture, they wear their photos on pendants.  Both are fabulous customs by Reina de Salem who made Olvido look temperamental and bold, and Recuerdo look shy and sweet.
