Just a normal girl...in a crazy pixel world... designing, exploring, meeting and having fun. I came to SL to explore its creative potential.. I never thought I would be a clothing designer! But here I am.. enjoying my design work along with other building projects. I started this blog to highlight some of my designs, things I love, places I see.. whatever occurs to me to share. Thank you for stopping by!

Ophelia..... a haunting

Happy Halloween! This is my favorite holiday and as I missed posting yesterday (for the sake of hot cider, pumpkin picking and a hayride) I'll be putting up two Halloween related posts today!

Following in the theme... I put together another costume, which is inspired by Shakespeare's Ophelia.. but with a little twist. Here I envision her haunting her watery grave.... (for a little brush up on our Shakespeare read on....) Again.. the idea is to use LoveCats items to create as much of the look as possible.

Ophelia is a character from the Shakespearean play Hamlet. Distraught over Hamlet, she either slipped and drowned.... or as is suggested in the play, killed herself in madness and heartbreak.

And if this is a little out there for you.. I think it would still make a great base for a ghastly costume (think dead bride, etc)

Flowers and plants cling to her as she wanders the lonely nearby fields

She slips comfortably back to her watery home

Here I am wearing from LoveCats:
Skin- Kitten skin white
Shape- Kitten shape grey
Eyes- Frostbite eyes from Frostbite avatar
Outfit- Ophelia Lost (on sale at half off right now! 200L)

and since I can't have *everything* on hand for the perfect look....I have added:
Hair- Red Queen
Eye Makeup (tintable)- TULI
