In July 2009 I reported that a new business called Magic Lantern Studio would open on Brunswick St. In November 2009 I reported that they had a sign on their door saying ‘opening soon’. But the door remained mysteriously closed. The mystery was resolved last week when owners Lucy and Gonzalo held a well attended opening soiree on Wednesday.

Magic Lantern Studio is a shop and studio featuring Victoriana in the form of toys, marionettes, books, image making and animation devices (such as a praxinoscope) and objets with a quirky retro vintage steampunk aesthetic. If you visit during the daytime there’s a lovely cafe open next door called Pollen Industries.

    I felt inspired by this wonderful new shop/studio. It was an exciting opening, with some especially awesome clothing worn by one of the guests from Irregular Choices (online store). Great pix B.
