MusicHaus of Gaga: Who’s Behind it All?

We all know that Lady Gaga is more than just a singer/songwriter; she’s a performer. Plucking her favorite elements from the realms of dance, electronics, fashion, performance art, and the media, her over-the-top image has been built from her collaborations in all of these areas. 
 
In 2008 Gaga put together a round table of artists and designers to weld together her ideas into everything that is Gaga today. This she calls her Haus of Gaga!
 
Who are they and what part do they play? Well let’s see!
 
This gorgeous orb headpiece was designed by Nasir Mazhar, but was given to Gaga by her Fashion Director, Nicola Formichetti. Chief stylist, director (whatever you want to call him) Formichetti is the man who was integral in gettting pieces from big-time designers when Gaga was still on the incline.
 
 
Gaga’s infamous Disco Stick has been re-created in several formats, and is a manifestation by haus member Matthew Williams. As well as one of Gaga’s ex-lovers, Williams was the Creative Director for Haus of Gaga from it’s beginnings in 2008 until 2010 (they call him Dada).
 
 
 Laurieann Gibson is the gorgeous choreographer that’s been stomping together moves for Lady Gaga since 2008. She currently serves as the Creative Director for the Haus of Gaga and even moved up to full-fledged Director for Gaga’s newest video ”Yoü and I”. If you haven’t seen the video yet, see it here!

GeneralSite to See: How it Should Have Ended

 

Got some free time on your hands? Then start watching the hilarious video below and you will waste hours clicking through the rest of their site; though I do like to think that time spent laughing hysterically is never wasted.  

 
Not just hilarious, I also kind of find myself wishing that’s how it really had happened. Poor Snape :(
 
Now, if Harry Potter isn’t your cup of tea, there are loads more videos to choose from at How It Should Have Ended. A few highlights: District 9, Twilight, and The Wizard of Oz alone make it worth the visit.
 
 
 
I wish I could tell you more about it, but I’m running out of creative ways to say, “this is awesome.” So I guess I’ll just let you watch in peace. Enjoy! 

Which is your favorite? Or favorites? I’m not one to discriminate.

ArtAlice in Waterland: Elena Kalis Gives the Classic Tale a Watery Spin

 
Before Tim Burton brought us his modern twisty tale of Alice in Wonderland, Russian born photographer Elena Kalis decided to put her own spin on this classic by shooting her own version . . . underwater. With 12-year-old daughter Alexandra as her model, Elena at once captures the youthful joy and innocence of swimming, stories, and surprise.
 
 
Having only specialized in underwater photography for a little over four years, she mixes her love of Brothers Grimm fairytales with the beauty of her now home-nation of the Bahamas to create an underwater fantasy world. Welcome to a world of magic, dreams, and imagination!
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
  
 
 
 
 
In addition to these beautiful fairy-tale pictures, Elena also creates some other really beautiful underwater photos. Read this interview about her work and then check out her website and Facebook for some more stunning creations.
