Yin And Yang

The origin of the yin and yang is obscure, but ancient Chinese philosophy has often been described as a concept of dualism. The yin and yang describe the contradicting opposite forces that may serve to complement one another. This philosophy is actively present within our worlds, everything has its counter opposite, the sun has the moon, black has white, dark has a light, and so on. Yin often symbolizes the feminine, internal energy, the negative, passive and intuitive.

Aladdin And A Magic Rug…

There is something about inanimate objects talking or reacting in movies that makes it all that much more magical. The Magic Carpet of Aladdin is especially magical, because not only does it fly but it has a personality, although it has no dialogue throughout the Aladdin movies. So this particular costume was very interesting to see, simply because one of the couples was stuck being the carpet, but it was definitely entertaining.
