Child of the Night


And these Children
Reaching… for the dead –
They heard voices…
This is what they said:
“We are the people
Bleeding from the mouth!
We are the people
Who will stick it in and out in and out in and out!”

“Children of the Night” – Eva O

I like old horror movies. The black and white ones from the 1920s, 1930s and 1940s. It wasn’t all about gore, and blood. It was about the atmosphere, about the story. It was about creating a vibe that is both erotic and scary. I am a huge Bela Lugosi fan and there is no one else who ever played Dracula better than he did. And the women in those movies were sexual, free, vampy and deviant. This picture could be from an old horror movie, and I love that I was able to capture that vibe. I am no Vampira, but no one can really recapture that woman’s beauty.

    Got the feel absolutely right, I’m sure more than just Dracula would like to sink his teeth into your neck.

  5. You achieved your goal. Makes me think of a woodblock print.

  6. You really did capture the vibe that you’re on about while also having that innocent look of a child over you, which is funny considering it’s a little sexual too! I love your makeup, again! And how one boob is hanging out.

  7. I love the moodiness of the image, Devie, the way you have created an atmosphere of drama and darkness. Beautiful art.
