Artwork: Lunatica

Coming up for air after reading Bram Stoker's Dracula (I just got my claws on it! So far I love it!) for five straight hours (Not unusual behavior for me. I completely zone when I'm reading.)- I realized I had yet to publish today's post! Ack!

Yes, her name is rather... melodramatic. But! In the great fellowship of Witches Who Tend to Ideas and Places, Lunatica oversees the mad, bad, and terminally insane.
Herself being not quite all right in the head, she loves to disrupt, with the most twisted and topsy-turvy schemes, the plans of the neighboring kingdoms- whose armies dare not venture into her lands. She maintains a close friendship with Carabosse (or Maleficent, as she is known to mortals); they share Circe of Greek myths as an aunt.

The sketch originally lacked the magenta background, and the only colors seen were her eyes: her pale greenish irises and bloodshot whites. They weren't standing out as I wanted them to, so in a fit of boredom I carefully filled in the white paper with tiny pink loops, of graduating depth. (It took a while). Anyway, it worked!

Style- Minimalist

I feel like I just shook with Edward Scissorhands. The forces of desert wind and my own tendency to harm myself on usually innocuous household objects (orange peels, flour sifters) means I have two broken nails and more tiny cuts on my fingers than I can count.

French Laundry shirt, altered Merona jeans, Merona flats, self-made choker.

Ever-so-slightly ghoulish makeup today. Bare skin and clear lip balm, with deep matte charcoal layered over matte violet and shimmery cranberry on my eyes.

Type Only Update

So sorry I haven't posted in a week- I ingested some gluten and had a reaction worse than anything I've ever experienced. In bed with flu-like symptoms (but no fever). However, I'm feeling better and hope to begin posting outfits again tomorrow!

Style- Channeling Audrey

I altered these jeans similarly to the blue pair right before we ran out the door to San Diego.
My mother took me to the Manchester Grand Hyatt to try their eggplant burger. (I'm a vegetarian.) We arrived at 1:00 but the restaurant didn't open until 3:00- so we walked up to the third for to rest until it  was time. She took photos of me during that time.
It wasn't until I stretched out on the couch that she noticed how much my outfit looked like something Audrey Hepburn might wear, because I'm a good three inches taller than Audrey was.
