This was a movie I wanted to see at the cinema but unfortunately never got around to it. So, you can imagine my excitement when I rented it from the DVD store on the weekend, "The Imaginarium of Dr Parnassus". An ode to Heath Ledgers amazing talent, and devastating loss, this movie was the last he ever made, passing away during the filming of it. However the inclusion of seasoned actors Johnny Depp, Jude Law and Colin Farrell to take on his role throughout the duration of the film did not ditract from it at all, in fact, I believe added to it - with each of them paying hommage to Heath's character in their own special ways.

The movie itself is full of jawdroppingly beautiful etheral vintage glitz and gypsy glam, with the gorgeous Lily Cole's character 'Valentina' pulling off such amazing outfits.

I therefore thought I'd trawl through etsy to discover some "Imaginarium" style pieces....

I also put together this Parnassus inspired treasury! (click on the pic below to see the whole thing)


  1. I absolutely LOVE this film - I bought it on BluRay recently - and despite not really being one for technology (I still watch VHS haha) - this film is truly SPECTACULAR on BluRay with the new big TV haha. So much detail, colour, texture - Terry Gilliam is an incredible filmmaker!
