Dearly Departed

Excerpt taken from The Dallas Dispatch
May 23rd, 1934
Dallas, Texas

The Tale is ended. The story is told.
The sordid and blood-flecked romance of Clyde Barrow and Bonnie Parker is finished by the police bullets of an ambushed posse.

“You couldn’t hear any one shot. It was just a roar, a continuous roar, and it kept up for several minutes. We emptied our guns, reloaded and kept shooting. No chances with Bonnie and Clyde.”

Alas, today marks the anniversary of the day that Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow met their fateful end at the hands of the Texas police. The irony is, they were penned as heartless criminals, and in many respects they were, yet the police managed to catch them off guard when they stopped to help an elderly man with a flat tire on the side of the road.

Some press outlets used their ambushed death as a warning to American youth, an example of what a life of crime can lead to.

Others romanticized the event, referring to the couple as Romeo and Juliet in a getaway car, the car that eventually drove them to the plot of their demise.

As for us, we’re taking the fashion high road and paying our respects to our namesake couple in sombre yet chic shades of black on location at the Silent sim cemetery (thank you for your help Saeya!).

Passion is one thing, but there is little forgiveness for a crime of fashion.
