Miss Darkling Elytis
I met a lady in the meads,
Full beautiful - a faery's child,
Her hair was long, her foot was light,
And her eyes were wild.
I always think of Keats when I run into Miss Elytis. Today, while picking up hyasynth Tiramisu's new outfit (below), I ran into Darkling. We are bad for each other's pocket books. She's the one that whispered the name of a certain AO creator to me (I adore my AO), and also encouraged me to purchase a number of TESLA's ankle boots. I think we're good shopping companions because we stand around and gossip about naughty things while purchasing; we also share a taste in the dark and decadent.
Which describes both Darkling's outfit and my own. Darkling is wearing Unzipped's Victorian Steampunk ensemble and hair by BettiePage Voyager. I haven't been to Unzipped yet, but I obviously must (damn that bad influence Darkling), because it smells like my kind of store. I'm wearing ~silentsparrow's~ latest, "Dreaded Sunny Day", which reminds me of something Dorothy Vallens would wear in Blue Velvet.
The set has lots of parts, including some awesome lingerie and an incredibly adorable tutu, a steal for 400L. Six colors -- go see it all over here.
