Never Fall In Love by GothicNarcissus Never Fall In Love by GothicNarcissus
You want to be my lover,
You want to be my man.
I am a flower
And I hurt your hands.
Don’t say you love me,
Don’t say you care:
I’m not human,
We will never be the same.

You can carry on like that
I will give you all I’ve got.
I’m not the one you’re looking for:
Roses never, never fall in love.

You could be a giant,
You could be a child:
I’m buried in the ground
And I never cry.
Don’t say you love me,
Don’t say you care:
I’m not human,
We will never be the same.

You can carry on like that
I will give you all I’ve got.
I’m not the one you’re looking for:
Roses never, never,
Roses never, never fall in love.


[ Never Fall In Love – Emilie Simon ]


As anticipated on my Tumblr, here is a brand new work!
This is an idea I had totally randomly last month while listening to the song, but that I haven’t been able to shoot until today. I really love how it all came out, and I’m quite proud of how I made the make up and outfit, I had never done such a complex thing for the latter.
I’d say my fashion influences are getting stronger and stronger. There is no particular photo I took inspiration from for this one, but it still looks kind of Vogue-ish, doesn’t it?
You can read more details and see an exclusive outtake I particularly like on my blog!

Photo, concept, model, styling, hair, make up: Me

Amazing piece. I listened to the song and was able to make the connection to the photo. The roses add a delicate touch to the dark appearance of you. The lace scarf and you're eye make up add visual interest. The veil in you're hair is kinda off centered but it looks like a wind is moving it or a ghost of a past lover. The only thing I would have fixed about the photo is the lighting you look kind of washed out. The photo would have been cool in black and white with the rose being in color. This piece made me think a lot about the meaning behind it. This photo made me think of a black widow someone who fell in love and then hurt the person they fell in love with great job on the picture
What do you think?

Lovely photo "ME", your a perfect example of why I like pretty boys in makeup... they can wear anything or nothing and be just absolutely stunning, while dangerously thorny, yet playful and sexy too!

LOL, A Fan

Have Happy New Year

He he! Here is my widow! :P (I mean :hug:)
With The´ SHIRT!!! :la: (I mean...with THE Black THEO´sss ssSHIRT ^-^)
I love your ....veil-ish rose-"hat"! :D (I meant I love the funeral mood :P) Works very good with your pale pale pale make up! (I meant speedy-make up)
Finally I see you with a rose on your hair... that is a fetish for me! (I mean roses!^-^)
Given that you felt so damn bad these days, this pic came up just perfect. (I mean Good job!)
But I still believe in what I´ve told you some time ago: "Keep all the roses. I´m not dead!" *icecream*
Love is everything, baby! But we cannot have everything, can we? :) (I meant we can try! ^-^)
Whaaat? I´m in a good mood! :P
Good to "rose" you again! (I mean good to fall in... rose!^.^)

Welcome back! *___* I hope you had a good time on holidays! I'm very curious to read about them! *_*
I was thinking of something like this since forever, but didn't really get the right idea - something in between a bride and a widower - until some weeks ago. I'm glad you like it! :heart: :rose:
And yep, I remember our long speech about love... but sometimes it feels good to pretend you can do without it. ;)

Thank you, my dear! Well,yes...I think I had a pretty good time, but I won´t talk bout it as 98% is top secret and damn classified and I hate to reveal secrets. I´m faithful till death, you know? :P

A black bride you say...or a white widow! Well, I don´t wanna ask who will be the lucky one in that case. But, in this case, I know you meant the entire song and the concept. The bride is less visible as you covered her with Theo´s shirt to much, but the widow.... :la:

I never get Ecstasy-c on your poses, but here you almost got me. Almost,as I´m a flower too I beat your roses :P But I guess I will really enjoy another try, this time with a more bitchie-bride? Black bride, of course, because otherwise I don´t think it will suits you. Ah.. I´m Lilith cuddling your Astroth-ish nerve. But well...the things I do for art!!!!!

About love...hmmm...I prefer to let you be proud and bite you when you´re bleeding. I think you will be sweeter and more docile... But is also true that I like more the acrid flavors and the aggressive spirits, so I won´t try to educate you in this matter cause I might like you afterwards and I cannot lend you this pleasure. Somebody told me that narcissistic means to stay alive! :P And, besides that,pretending is not one of my styles! Defeating is!

So, long live the Love in all its aspects! And the Roses! Black Roses! And their free spectral spirits! ^.^

Hi Babie, you are definately world class. I love your delicate touch when it comes to the face. Many people who re-touch photographs tend to destroy the natural planes found on the face, but you keep the integrity of it. write me a novel if you have a chance.

this is a little morbid... and you look a bit sick. what brought such a picture ?
Reply
:icongothicnarcissus:
GothicNarcissus Featured By Owner Aug 20, 2011  Hobbyist Photographer
Well, the sick-ish look probably depends on the fact that I'm recovering after having actually been sick due to stress. As for the photo, the song is one of my favourites and a personal anthem, and I wanted to do something inspired by it since months. :) But it's not like a post-apocalyptic break up kind of thing, if that's what you mean. ;)

no. i got the part of the song and the idea is really cool. made me think of the bride from "beetlejuice" when i first saw it. you shouldn't over stress yourself to the point of an illness but its better then any make up:P nothing like reality to give a good special effect.

Love the way you have the black vail frame your head…must’ve been quite hard to set it just right like that :heart: The green and red of make up and rose work very well as accent too.

GothicNarcissus Featured By Owner Aug 20, 2011  Hobbyist Photographer
Thank you so much, dear! :hug: For the whole hairdo it took me something like 5 hairpins to keep the veil in its place and a couple of hairgrips for the rose. And, of course, a lot of caution after I was done, with sudden movements totally forbidden. But it was a nice challenge, I was looking forward to it since I had the idea! *-* I'm glad you like it!
