This week's featured Analogue Lifestyle article is "A Very Lomo Halloween!" by @ihave2pillows from Kansas, USA. If being a giant functioning Diana F+ film camera for Halloween isn't showing your Lomography love, then we don't know what is! Find out how he made his analogue costume here.
I love Halloween. It’s my favorite day of the American social calendar and my license to create and celebrate all things crazy. This year, I decided to pay homage to my new love, the Lomo camera! After some research online, I noticed that people have made functional digital camera costumes for Halloween before, but there’s no Google-able record of a Giant Monster functional film camera. So, with 72 hours to go, I quickly went to work.
We don’t blame community member @ihave2pillows for wanting an ambitious costume that stands out AND makes wonderful souvenirs for partygoers, so we applaud him for this really awesome idea! Inspired by the form of his Diana F+ and the function of the Diana Instant Back+, he created a costume that was both amusing and useful! Read the original article to find out how he made this Lomographic ensemble and to see more photos.
Congratulations on winning 10 Piggies!

If you want to know the heart of a person, peek inside his/her wardrobe! And no, nobody famous said that; I only just made it up. But really, don't you think it's true? After all, the way we dress screams our personality; at least for most of us. And that is why, as soon as I land on a new city, one of the things I absolutely must do is find the local boutiques. Sure, I love the fancy chain boutiques as much as the next person, but there's just something else about a local clothing store. It's unique!
The second trailer for "Star Wars:Episode VII - The Force Awakens" has the internet abuzz in the last last few hours. To join in on the fun, we scoured our archives and the cyberspace for some Star Wars treasures. Think Princess Leia and her double in that glorious gold costume, plus a photo of the new cast in roundtable discussion.
It's late October in Copenhagen and summer was well and truly behind us. With the nights drawing in, the chances of going out with one of my cameras was slim. All was not lost at this time of year, however, as it allowed me time to focus on my own personal music projects—I am a professional composer/musician and audio engineer at my own studio by day.
Hanna Varela was one of the photographers who participated in the exhibition jointly organized by Parallel Planets and Lomography Singapore and held last week.
