Hello heroes, spacemen, rebels, mimes, goblins, Jean Genies, diamond dogs, cat people and pretty things! (oof!)
It was an extremely sad day yesterday as I woke up to the news of David Bowie's death...my immediate reaction was to convince myself it was a hoax; there are very few celebrities/musicians/artists that I truly value and he was among them. He has inspired me for as long as I can remember and he will continue to do so, Labyrinth was always my favourite film growing up; he is not gone or forgotten. He has simply returned to the stars and, yes, yesterday they did indeed look very different. I still can't quite believe it and I will continue to play his songs on repeat while I revise for my exams!
So, this look is my expression of love for everything he embodied - his creativity, boldness, trueness to himself and outrageous excellence - and also a combination of my favourite Bowie looks over the years. We will never have anyone quite like Ziggy, may he rest among the stardust.
Rest in Peace, my Goblin King
