London is Burning
"I will show you fear in a handful of dust."
"A woman drew her long black hair out tight
And fiddled whisper music on those strings”
Inspired by T.S. Eliot’s “The Waste Land”, with subconscious recollection of John Constantine’s appearance in Sandman.
Death & Dream
I designed their clothing to pay homage to little revelatory symbols about their characters.. Such as how the “Death” card in the Vertigo Tarot was holding a blue rose, and Daniel was often pictured with poppies (symbolic of dreams for its narcotic nature). This also obviously includes the ankh sigils, Daniel’s emerald (as opposed to Morpheus’ ruby), and the ruby sleeve design I always loved from his original costume. Toss in a dash of Visual Kei/Gothic Lolita (especially because I love those cute little EGL tophats) inspiration, and here we are. I’ve got tons of love for the classic 80’s punk look, but I figure they’d want to update their wardrobes a bit since then.
