An apartment tour with Alex Reed Thompson

Meet Alex Reed Thompson and his cat, Q. Alex is a hair and makeup artist living in Champaign, and Nathan and I are excited to collaborate with him for a future photo shoot! This is his apartment which I have so often been stunned by. He has created a unicorn, taxidermy cat palace which never ceases to intrigue me every single time I step foot into his apartment. He collects crucifixes, taxidermy, unicorn memorabilia, owl memorabilia,  post mortem photography, skulls and antlers, witchcraft and fashion books, pillows, mirrors and amazing VHS movies from childhood (from what I've seen thus far!). It's always a good time at his apartment, and I feel right at home... even with his taxidermy raccoon! Haha..... Enjoy!

We love you, Alex! Thanks for letting us into your creative haven... we can't wait to collaborate with you! What is your favorite part about Alex's apartment?
love, polly
