“Tu te plais à me voir, sombre et désespéré,
Errer dans mon amour comme en un cimetière!”
― Émile Nelligan, Poèmes Choisis
He proposed to her with a bouquet of black roses, and she said yes. They set the date and time: November 1, midnight.
Her parents were a bit concerned—the two hadn’t known each other long. They could mark they day she had met him: she had lost the blush in her cheeks and had gone paler as the fall moved along, she began wearing everything black, including her lipstick and nails, and her perfume changed from her familiar baby powder to overripe blackberries scented with the underlying note of decaying roses. A cool air eddied about her. They invited him for dinner. He seemed an enigma: charming, handsome, and inexplicably, a vegetarian. Her mother’s pot roast languished in the kitchen as they all picked at their mashed potatoes and roll. Neither could remember a thing they had talked about but he left a good impression.
The nuptials were planned for the Angel Manor. She chose a dress she had gotten on the TAG Gacha, a rare Black Wedding dress from Chandra Meehan that included all the accessories in a beautifully-made custom mesh. The lace of the layered skirt had a subtle skull motif as did her necklace and hair ornaments. A brilliant rose arrangement, which included color-change flower sets, accompanied her veil and she carried an old-fashioned parasol. Her father was a bit uncomfortable at her bared breasts but skull shaped pasties covered the vital parts and well, the dress was certainly inexpensive as a gacha.
Thora Charron provided her beautiful hair, a flowing dark look that fell over her shoulders in romantic waves. And Tuli Asturias’ skin for Tres Chic was her look of choice, a translucent powdered skin with such flawlessness, such delicacy that the veins of blood running under her skin could almost be seen. It provided a pale contrast to her dark makeup from Constance Daehlie.
