the mind...is a terrible thing to taste. i think that was a quote by some band, but it seemed to fit.

the fact that she looks so joyful, but yet is crying, makes it interesting for me. i like disturbing. i would like to think that her face and pose reflect all kinds of different emotions, at the same time, just like the mind does. originally i was thinking that she should look like a vampire after a feast, or a vampire who is about to die as the sun rises. but plans have a tendency to change.

as for the fakeblood...please read more here [link]

I Thought it was more of bloodlust/Thrill-Kill kind of thing before I read the description

Also, discovering "bloodelves" are NOT this picture +pointy ears - solidified My Resolve to never, ever play world of warcraft.

Either way, great photo.

And Ministry is pretty cool.

My first impression was maniacal release and it made me think of how I see myself acting out many old Alice in Chains songs.... Her mannerisms and complex emotions (that can easily be all sorts of things depending on interpretation) make me want to reach out and join her. Not commiseration, rather empathizing and rejoicing in finding another that gets what is so difficult to grasp. Thank you, more than you know.

"The Mind Is A Terrible Thing To Taste," is an album by Ministry (1989) and one of the seminal industrial albums.

Love this picture, too.

This is disgusting and haunting and menacing and... beautiful all at the same time. I especially love the eyes and the minor details such as the strand of saliva in the mouth (yeah it's gross :P )
Wonderful piece!

Carnevouris....very interesting indeed, my friend, if I am deemed able to call you that.
I remids me that not everyone is what they appear to be, and it intrigues me to be taught so.
The meaning really reaches you, and forces you to think twice.
(damn keys. It takes me five minutes just to type one comment! L.O.L)
Hope to see more of this.
