Anjuli Symone, a photographer, singer, burlesque performer, and creative jack-of-many-trades extraordinaire, recently shot a series of self-portraits in my Medusa and Memento Mori IV scarves. Anjuli has generously allowed me to share the photographs here, and I think many of you will find them to be wonderful styling inspiration for your own outfits!
There's no one true version of Medusa’s myth, as is true of any very old story. This scarf blends references from her depiction in Ancient Greek art, Roman retellings of her myth, modern ideas about her, and my own relationship with her and projections onto her. Though Medusa is a minor character in Greek mythology whose myth has undergone countless retellings throughout millennia, her endurance in modern culture speaks to the staying power of strength in the face of cruelty.
Cassie Rae, the fabulous model and writer behind The Lingerie Raven, recently reviewed and wrote about the Widow's Captive silk scarf. Cassie and her photographer Rook Boudoir have generously allowed me to share the photos they took here!
The Widow's Captive silk scarf illustrates the plight of a young noble woman foolish enough to venture into the den of a Giant Spider to retrieve some of the treasure in the hoard within. Tragically, she finds herself captured to serve as the Spider's newest plaything instead. Hanging in the Spider's web alongside our poor heroine, we see dripping jewels and pearls, magical artifacts, and even subtle references to other Logandria scarves.
For those that desire to read more about the the story taking place on this...
Set to coincide with the New Year, the Phoenix Harpy scarf takes a mournful look backwards at the events of 2020, while remaining cautiously optimistic about the future. In this illustration, we see the Phoenix Harpy wounded by arrows in a great battle and engulfed in her own flames in the moments before her regeneration.
