Hark, Edwardians! We've peered into our ticket valise, and see that it's a matter of moments before we surely sell out for Saturday's fantastical world of art, music, theater, dance, and adventure. So if you're interested in partaking on Saturday only, chop chop before they're all gone. Link in bio. | Photo by Marco Sanchez | #edwardianball#edwardian#edwardgorey

Tickets for the Edwardian Ball in SF on Saturday night are now lighter than a feather duster...single-day tickets for Saturday are almost GONE!

For you folks in the Bay Area, we will be performing at the Edwardian Ball on Saturday January the 27th. It’s an amazing, phantasmagorical event where performers and crowd blend into a Victorian/Steampunk/Goth/Circus/Theatrical/Burlesque/Edward Gorey-esque night of waltzing in corsets and top hats, drinking absinth watching contortionists and dancers (one of which I will be) swirling on stage and beyond. Get your tickets while there are some left...!
Just got back from Austin, TX so this post is a little delayed. Had a great time and was given these gifts as birthday presents from @samanthaelia23! Today’s finds come from @terratoys in Austin, TX! A cute toy shop right outside of downtown. The three items are part of artist “Edward Gorey’s” illustrations. An exceptional artist and human being! He served in WW2 and attended both Harvard and School of the Art Institute of Chicago. The items shown are, a tarot deck with only negative traits, an illustrated story through cards, and a toy theater based on Dracula. With tons of Gorey’s illustrations! Awesome weekend & great finds.
New diorama - "Fruitcake" by Edward Gorey. Apparently I missed the Most Depressing Day of the Year yesterday. What nonsense - it was great! The car went through the yearly inspection, good meetings at work, finally got our bookshelf from IKEA, yummy pizza at our local place, then fell asleep in my ❤s arms, watching the silliest movie ever "The Ice Cream Man". #edwardgorey#diorama

Downtown Salem stationery shop, Edward Gorey window - what I started seeing, when I finally explored downtown on foot, were all the small, old-time businesses inhabiting the still historic downtown buildings and storefronts. Salem is that girl you didn’t notice right away, but slowly begin to realize what a smoldering hot babe she actually is #edwardgorey#vintagecity#salemoregon#locallyowned
Meet some of the artists showing at the Ball this year—like San Diego-based @v.gearheardt, a second generation award-winning artist pioneering a new art form at the confluence of art and technology.✨“We have created assemblages combining old items with new technology for years but never felt comfortable in an existing named genre. This new medium, Sensational Assemblage, is the fusion of sensory-stimulating high technology with vintage artifacts,” he says.✨Old clocks, radios and pipes are given new life with high voltage arcs, plasma displays, motors, neon, or even Bluetooth. Although the medium is time-period agnostic, many of the VGL pieces are in the science fiction universe of steampunk. Electronics add texture and depth to his pieces as he mimics 1890s bespoke craftsmanship using intricate brass and wood detailing.✨The addition of his inventive “weird science” not only creates interest through these anachronisms, but the lights, sounds and motion expands the viewer’s sensory bandwidth. Adding a dollop of utility—maybe as a backwards-running clock or Bluetooth music player—breathes life into the work and gives his pieces a place in everyday life. Residing in the steampunk universe allows for fantastic backstories that fire the imagination with eyes and ears engaged. 👀👂🏽See more of his work at http://www.v-gearheardt.com. | #edwardianball#edwardian#edwardgorey#steampunk#sensationalassemblages
‘The Kreutzer Sonata’ by Leo Tolstoy. Vintage Russian Library, 1957. Cover design by Edward Gorey.🏹 “As soon as a young man advances toward a woman, directly he falls under the influence of [this opium], and loses his head. Long ago I felt ill at ease when I saw a woman too well adorned,—whether a woman of the people with her red neckerchief and her looped skirt, or a woman of our own society in her ballroom dress. But now it simply terrifies me. I see in it a danger to men, something contrary to the laws; and I feel a desire to call a policeman, to appeal for defense from some quarter, to demand that this dangerous object be removed.” and, “Another’s wife is a white swan, and ours is bitter wormwood.”💫#leotolstoy#edwardgorey#russiannovel#russianclassics
