New Fashion Line from Duluth launches during Dragon*Con 2011

New Fashion Line from Duluth launches during Dragon*Con 2011

 

Penny Dreadful Productions (PDP) of Duluth, GA premiers Remnant during Dragon*Con 2011 Saturday, September 3.  Remnant is PDP's largest fashion collection characterized by a short vignette story line.

A social media campaign was launched to introduce the story behind the costumes while building suspense for the fashion release at the convention. Remnant is a military force living among a world of mass destruction.  Remnant is a  well-structured, formidable army with a complex chain of command of fierce, but fashionable soldiers and specialists dressed by PDP. 

The Great War ended in smoke and ruin, and the world as we knew it exists no more. The fighting continues. Organized rebels and rogue pirates prefer chaos, but the world needs peace and stability.

Dralion, the new Cirque Du Soleil show, opens today

Fusing the 3000 year-old tradition of Chinese acrobatic arts with the multidisciplinary approach of Cirque du Soleil, Dralion draws its inspiration from Eastern philosophy and its never-ending quest for harmony between humans and nature. The show’s name is derived from its two emblematic creatures: the dragon, symbolizing the East, and the lion, symbolizing the West.

In Dralion, the four elements that govern the natural order take on a human form. Thus embodied, each element is represented by its own evocative colour: air is blue; water is green; fire is red; earth is ochre.
