“Eternity is a frightfully long time to spend alone…”
And now, an obvious confession – Halloween is one of my favourite times of the year. Since childhood I have been drawn to all things spooky, and a tradition amongst my friends is an annual ‘Spookyween’ party. This gathering encourages us all to get decked out in costume (no theme, no genre; we dress as whatever we wish), and the stakes seem to rise every year, resulting in some fantastic efforts from us all. Over the coming days I’ll show off a few of my costumes from across the years; I feel the need to begin with the master of macabre – none other than Edgar Allan Poe, my costume from 2012.
“And my soul from out that shadow that lies floating on the floor shall be lifted…”
Below is a snippet of my favourite Poe poem, ‘Dreamland’ from 1844:
By a route obscure and lonely,
Haunted by ill angels only,
Where an Eidolon named NIGHT,
On a black throne reigns upright,
I have reached these lands but newly
From an ultimate dim Thule –
From a wild weird clime that lieth, sublime,
Out of SPACE – Out of TIME.
