The Bone Dress of 1938

I've been doing some fast research on the fashions of Death motif, for the Urken Biotch novel series and came across more than I thought i was going to come up with. For some reason I had it in my head that 'serious' designers weren't going to toy with a Death design. Again, I find that I am far from correct, which is why I still do research. This design is from 1938 and was created by a woman named Elsa Shiapareli . It was, at the time, scandalous, but also intriguing... as scandalous items tend to be. Of course I have found much more and I'll probably post most of it over the next couple of weeks while I finish this first novel.

Blood Concept Fragrance

An Italian fragrance firm is releasing a line of unisex eau de perfumes called Blood Concept based on the four different blood groups, A, B, AB, and O. Which should let us know how far Italians will go to get an edge... ewe Debuted at Esxence 2011, a perfumery trade show, in Milan and will go on sale some time in September. All versions of the blood-scented fragrance has a hint of metallic in them that is inspired by the real thing, but does not include any actual blood or flowery components. I'm really not sure how Blood is suppose to be an attractive smell, on either a man or a woman. It isn't a bad smell on the grill while being seared, but other than beef, I'm not much into the idea of smelling blood.. especialy my own. If you are looking to attract that gorgeous vampire next door this should do the job. What happens after that is not my fault.
