Friday, October 25, 2013 Artsy Fartsy: Meet The Cult: Alice Lancaster
There’s something so effortlessly awesome about our latest Shoe Cult Ambassador Alice Lancaster. She’s equal parts funny as she is talented, and you may have seen her art plastered on (some highly debated) American Apparel T-shirts as of late. She took us on a tour of her studio space in Bushwick, Brooklyn so we could get an up close and personal look at her NYC life—and her amazing cat.
Friday, October 25, 2013 Top Tens: Scare Tactics
Halloween has this weird way of changing meanings as we grow up. At first, it’s a day for swift candy acquisition and consumption. By 15, it turns into skimpy cat costumes and schoolgirl skirts that ride higher than most thongs. At 18, I’ve come to a crossroads: am I still a part of the “I’m a mouse, duh” house party club, or is there something else I should be doing? Something more authentic? In the name of adventure (and boredom), my friends and I scoured Georgetown University for the creepiest spirit-channeling activities to do on the day of the devil. Luckily, our school has two graveyards, a (supposedly) haunted observatory, and some statues that scare me shitless. Here’s what we did—and what you can do—to freak yourself out on old Hallows’ Eve.
1. Ouija Your Life Away
Okay, so maybe Ouija boards are sold at Toys”R”Us, but there are YouTube videos and some super detailed accounts of supernatural experiences by way of Ouija. When I told my friends about my plans to take out my Ouija board this Halloween, one of them refused to be in the same room as me. Personally, I’ve never been possessed during a Ouija game, but I’m keeping my fingers crossed.
Thursday, October 24, 2013 Role Model: Meet The Cult: Brandee Brown
In case you haven’t noticed, we just can’t get enough of our NYC Shoe Cult disciples. Today, we’re getting to know filmmaker/Ryan McGinley muse Brandee Brown who is the definition of a badass babe. Lucky for us, Brandee created a short film that we’re debuting for the first time right here on the site! (Plus, it comes with a poem too.) Pretty cool, eh? Check it out below.
