Artists Pamela Reed and Matthew Rader (Reed + Rader) stole my heart this morning after I stumbled upon this circus of freaks fashion story they created for V magazine. Like, where does one even begin to describe how visually awesome this is?
I was never a huge fan of those Sims games, but I guess I never came across a circus-themed version that was populated with freaks I'd actually love to play with. And I would have so played this to death... and then some. I don't even care to know how this was made. I just want to live in this fantasy production forever....
