Trollabundin by GothicNarcissus Trollabundin by GothicNarcissus
Trøllabundin eri eg, eri eg.
Galdramaður festi meg, festi meg.
Trøllabundin djúpt í míni sál, í míni sál,
Í hjartanum logar brennandi bál, brennandi bál.

Trøllabundin eri eg, eri eg.
Galdramaður festi meg, festi meg.
Trøllabundin inn í hjartarót, í hjartarót,
Eyga mítt festist har ið galdramaðurin stóð.


[ Trøllabundin – Eivør ]

A little longer than a month left to the Beauty And The Beast live action version premiere and I’m really clinging to the ceilings out of impatience. I want that movie right. now.
Beauty And The Beast is odd in that I find the Disney version a huge improvement over the original tale: it has given the tale so many more layers than the plain “don’t judge by appearance” message, and most of them resonate deeply with me. I’m going through a phase in my life in which I identify with the Beast a lot, and that movie gives me hope. This is why I’m so invested in the new version and hope it turns out as good as the animated one, and also why I’m finding so much inspiration in it.
The title of this photo, Trøllabundin, is Faroese for “spellbound”: beside being quite appropriate, the mood of the song really captured what I had in mind for this photo, so I played it while I was shooting. Strangely enough, this was one of those first take got it kind of photos.
On a side note, I’ve been toying with this idea for quite a few weeks; I chose today to publish it, well, randomly.
D’accord, en fait j'ai choisi ce jour ci parce que c’est un anniversaire. :heart:

Photo, concept, editing, model, styling, hair:



[ Spellbound ]

“Spellbound I am, I am.
A wizard has enchanted me, enchanted me.
Spellbound deep inside my soul, inside my soul,
In my heart burns a scorching fire, scorching fire.

Spellbound I am, I am.
A wizard has enchanted me, enchanted me.
Spellbound inside my hear’s roots, in my heart’s root,
My eyes stare there, where the wizard stood.”

So...if I understand well : you're the beast ? An handsome beast...If i may say ^^ The picture is amazing..the light is upon your face and we barely see the rose..but she's here and the embroidery on  the back of your shirt remind the flower. Nice shot (as usual). A birthday ? On Saint Valentine's day ? Have a nice day :-)

Yep, that's correct. More on the inside, really; but, like in the tale, I hope there's still something more humane deeper within. So, a human inside a beast inside a human. Basically, that's Beastception! :D
And thank you! I chose that particular shirt very specifically for this photo, glad you noticed! ;)
On a side note, yes, today is someone's birthday, which is the one thing that has made me less bitchy about Valentine's Day in recent years.
