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!

I traveled to Cartagena de Indias, Colombia in May 2015 with my twin sister. Our birthday was on the 31st, and for the last few years we've had a silent pact to try to spend our birthdays traveling as much as we could (and as long as we’re single!).
Originally trained as a classical scholar, Arnold Genthe was a self-taught photographer famous for, to name a few, his photographs of San Francisco's Chinatown in the early 1900s, autochromes, and portraits which included famous individuals, dancers, and women with his beloved pet, Buzzer the cat.
