She is preternaturally silent, her coat swirling around her as she moves, unusually graceful in her strange platform boots. All I can feel is the susurrus of air as she circles around me, her eyes focused on me from behind the mask of her facial tattoo—wings as if from a phoenix, burning around her eyes. I can’t imagine the pain of receiving that tattoo. I wonder why she chose to get it (or didn’t choose), what brought her to this point.
Last week I was making sweet little girl outfits; this week I seem to have found my inner demon. I start with an ensemble from Bare Roses, which is the source for a whole range of inexpensive and imaginative outfits. This particular outfit comes with the usual overabundance of sculpties and dead-on details, including leg buckles and arm buckles.
I was inspired by this skin from Plastik, which is a hunt item for the Style of the 50s hunt. (Don’t ask me more about the hunt—I tripped upon it and took advantage so I could see what the big kerfluffle about Plastik skins is.) I was able to work this whole look around the skin and makeup from that set, which I like a lot for its fantasy flavor.
My boots are ankle versions of Ono Zinner’s awesome fantasy boots (which I now see don’t show in profile so you get a bonus photo).
