Robin Hood fashion

Off to see the new Robin Hood movie later this afternoon and I know it will inspire some future costumes as I love this period.

Seems I'm not the only one who is likewise inspired.

In Honor of Robin Hood

Joining those posting with excitement about this weekend's new movie release. Vintage Howard Pyle illustrations and verse from The Merry Adventures of Robin Hood.

"Gentle river, gentle river,
Bright they crystal waters flow,

Sliding where the aspens shiver,

Gliding where the lilies blow,

Singing over pebbled shallows,

Kissing blossoms bending low,

Breaking 'neath the dipping swallows
Purpling where the breezes blow."

The creation of dreams...beautiful dreams.

Mythic film director and creator, Lisa Stock of InByTheEye films is raising funds for this beautiful project, The Titania prequel, and you can help!!! Her Kickstarter page outlines levels of donation and the scope of the project. You can help with a pledge as low as $5, but certainly the sky is the limit.
