Muse Album Cover Series - Showbiz

Hi guys, I am back and I sure missed you guys to pieces! I would like to introduce the first installment of a mini-series that will be inspired by my favorite band, Muse; more specifically, their album covers. While I was on hiatus, I was seriously struggling with inspiration with new looks, so I thought creating looks inspired by each album cover would be fun and challenging. They inspire me to no end, so why not?

 Ever since I was a little girl, I have been obsessed with music. Music holds a special place in my heart, and it has helped me through many dark and difficult times in my life, as well as some very special moments. I remember setting up my boombox with my little sister, and we would listen to music all day long, and sing and dance without a care in the world. We'd even wait by the radio for hours just to record our favorite song on a cassette tape (anyone else do that?)! We'd write our own songs and rhythms . I wouldn't leave the house without my walkman, and I'd embarrass my mom with my oh so lovely voice. To this day, I cannot go a day without listening to some tunes. It keeps me alive...it keeps me going! I'm a lover of all genres, but no one else can compare to the one and only, Muse.

This look is inspired by their debut album, Showbiz, which was released in 1999. The album art features a sexy space girl, living in a blue world, and splashing in alien puddles.

If you haven't heard of the magical trio that calls themselves Muse, then you're seriously missing out! Their music is sort of difficult to explain, but many like to label their sound as alternative/progressive-rock/dramatic/emotional/electronic/symphonic. Some may even call them weird. Regardless of what they sound like, they are responsible for the countless chills and eargasms I have experienced throughout the years. I've seen them live in the past, and they put on a performance like no other. I am seeing them again in January, and I can hardly contain my feels!

"Unintended" is my favorite track of the album. It's an oldie, but definitely a goodie. Although this is one of their more emotional and softer songs, it's still an unforgettable piece. Sit back, and enjoy. You can thank me later :)

I hope you are all doing well! I will try my best to get back into my routine of posting at least once a week, but as some of you might already know, I'm currently in the process of getting loads of dental work done. That means I'm going to be in and out of appointments for about 6 weeks (which equals pain, boo!). Thankfully the worst is over, but it's still no walk in the park.

I hope you enjoyed this look, and I am looking forward to the future album inspired looks! Take care, and I'll see you all soon.

  18. I just wanted to say thank you for taking the time to do this series. I too love Muse and I am finally getting to see them in February. I describe their music as a play or a movie in a song. They manage to paint such beautiful visual images in my head with words. I can't wait to see them live. I was sooo excited by this series that I showed my husband the pic and he said incredible. Then he to me to make sure I show he the others. Hehehe. He has never asked that before. Just wanted to share my excitement with you on this one. Beautiful job as always, super excited to see others. Thank you again.
