Inspiração Freak Show

Daisy and Violet Hilton~ The Hilton sisters conjoined twins. Sideshow, a musical based on their lives growing up in the 1930's traveling throughout Freak Shows
Já que a próxima temporada de American Horror Story vai ter como tema Freak Show decidi dar uma pesquisada sobre o tema, que eu já conheço e adoro.
Para quem não conhece Freak Show é basicamente um circo dos horrores que eram muito famosos em 1890 até os anos 20, as pessoas adoravam ver esquisitices como pessoas deformadas, gêmeos siameses e outras raridades como sereias e monstros.Atualmente ainda existem esses circos mas são praticamente extintos. 
Girls just want to have fun.  Antique Freak Show, "Fat Lady" ----
Se vocês notarem essas imagens antigas de circos nesse estilo vão perceber que as atrações tinham um figurino todo especial para chamar ainda mais atenção para sua grandiosidade no palco.Estou pensando ainda em postar as inspirações desse tema na moda atual.
Kids checking out the freak show. The fat lady always got payed $1 per pound each show they did. But they usually didn't weigh as much as they where advertised

Adorei essa roupa de cavalo, muito criativo.
Just couldn't kick the habit!
Mademoiselle Gabrielle   "She was born in Basel, Switzerland in 1884 and began her exhibition career at the Paris Universal Exposition in 1900 as The Half-Woman.    Her first foray into show business proved quite successful as she soon traveled to America to work with the Dreamland Circus Side Show, Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey. Furthermore, in 1912, Mademoiselle Gabrielle embarked on a short-lived vaudevillian career with New York’s Hammerstein Theater."

tattooed people are so amazing... i love the stories behind side show people and that whole industry. It was super messed up but the pictures are always amazing. I love that the idea of a person covered in tattoos was so intriguing and weird. now its not something you would pay to see! these old pictures are totally a sweet inspiration for style
