Fashion Sketches by Inslee Fariss – Pretty girls, prettier puppies and much joy all around

– I have recently discovered these nice drawings that Ariel collected in her PC — She used to save hundreds of fashion items, outfits and designs, and also made her own —very good ones—; but these sketches by Inslee Fariss are especial. I do like many of them, and I understand why my sister loved them… Continue reading Fashion Sketches by Inslee Fariss – Pretty girls, prettier puppies and much joy all around

Should I Fear a Dreadful Angel? – [A forcible republication of my first post here]

Revisiting tonight this blog of my late sister (in a late hour of the night, too), I find that my first post here, from August 16th, 2016, precedes directly my last one, published just a while ago. Both of them speak about the same —or almost—… Eight months and ten days ago, three days after… Continue reading Should I Fear a Dreadful Angel? – [A forcible republication of my first post here]

Angelic Eroticism

A personal view about an Angel by Francesco Jerace One of my favourite sculptures representing overtly masculine angels is a marble group by Francesco Jerace, located in the Cappella Greco at Cosenza, Calabria, Italy. It is known as Fanciullo Morto e Angello (Dead Boy and Angel) and was made in 1900. The grace of the Angel… Continue reading Angelic Eroticism

Some more Sculptures from The Stratton Institute’s Collection “Dalí Universe”

Being the continuation of a first post on this same blog:  ‘Hommage à Terpsichore’, after Salvador Dalí – Faceless Beauty This collection was conceived in 1977, and the first sculptures were cast in 1984 —five years before the artist’s death—. It is beautiful and often spectacular, but I don’t believe it was wholly designed by… Continue reading Some more Sculptures from The Stratton Institute’s Collection “Dalí Universe”

Before Crossing the Dark Veil into the Light

In Loving Memory of Ari Fontrodona – Called to meet the Father (or Mother), and our own parents, on August 13th – 2016. May she be in Grace and perfect happiness, as she always intended —and often accomplished— in her earthly life, in spite of everything. When she named this blog SOMETHING BEYOND, she really… Continue reading Before Crossing the Dark Veil into the Light

Beautiful “bad hair” & A deep insight by Arthur Schopenhauer -lover of cats

No need to comment much about the dishevelled hair above and below, the bandana or the associated posts on Polyvore. This is an irrelevant post to almost everybody except the poster himself… but I like it 🙂 About Arthur Schopenhauer —who was a detestable misogynist, but a perfect genius anyway— I just feel like bringing… Continue reading Beautiful “bad hair” & A deep insight by Arthur Schopenhauer -lover of cats

A Variation on “Showing off Long Legs” – Made for boys

– I think this mod is better -it is also cheaper- than the original set: it is super cheap 🙂 Does anybody wish to make a comment? Does anybody opine that boys may aspire to look cute, dressing chic and girl-like?… Shouldn’t boys (and grown men) dress like they feel like dressing, disregarding all social… Continue reading A Variation on “Showing off Long Legs” – Made for boys

Ari’s Fashion (XI) – A Summer Night’s Fancy

A caprice of mine in pink & mint, with fireworks, never seen shoes, lovely skirt and jacket… and one Hindu prince at my side, smiling and holding my hand 🙂   (May I add that that Prince couldn’t ever be (unfortunately!) Prince Dakkar -Captain Nemo, for those who do not recognize the name-…? I wish… Continue reading Ari’s Fashion (XI) – A Summer Night’s Fancy

Ari’s Fashion (IX & X) – (Two sets with white dresses)

Despite her love for sprightly colours, Ariel always liked to wear white dresses. She had few, but wore them often (when she still wore dresses, since lately she was quite more a shorts & t-shirts’ girl). No more comments from my part about the outfits, aside from saying that the “Animale Gardner” dress featured in… Continue reading Ari’s Fashion (IX & X) – (Two sets with white dresses)
