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 characters in Argus Paul Estabrook's work in paper cutting are the stuff nightmares are made of: unusual forms, jagged edges, arms outstretched as if seeking salvation—all emphasized further by the plain white background on which they are placed. Combined, these details paint a picture straight out of Dante Alighieri's "Divine Comedy."

For this young artist, photography is not just a tally of sights. Set in light or dusk, it is a record of sensations. Shared bliss and awe are as much part of the scenery as the clouds. There is a sense of flight even on land.
