I thought I should start with Guillermo Del Toro on my Friday Fandom since the movie I am most excited to see this year is Crimson Peak. Seriously, I love his movies and adore his book. His Bleak House work/storage/art museum is somewhere I wish I could go. Also, I certainly wouldn't mind my own extra house filled with my own whimsy. Hellyboy 2: The Golden Army is pretty much perfect. If you don't think so, I don't know what's wrong with you. If you're not familiar with Mr. Del Toro's work you should look him up. You will not be disappointed. The house in the trailer for Crimson Peak looks like somewhere I wouldn't mind living and the costumes! ::SWOON:: He's so good at telling a scary story without an overabundance of gore. Sans, possibly the show The Strain. But I've even watched some of that and will likely finish it.
You can get his book for endless inspiration. As someone who has no truly deep imagination and who struggles to create anything, I greatly admire people who are deeply gifted with such talents. Especially when they use it to make marvelous things.
Pictures from the Legendary movie site as well as Pinterest. Though I can tell you some come right out the book. LOOK HIM UP!!
