I am writing this post while engaged in an Elizabethan line dance with Henry VIII. I arrived in one of ~silentsparrow's~ new releases, Hart's Blood (the silver edition, there are four other colors), and felt quite at home in my costume. In fact, I got many compliments, which is marvelous when dancing with those elaborately garbed Elizabethans, because they really know their dress!
The dance was hosted in Winterfell. The party discussed the general darkness of the sky (the land is permanently set to midnight), and this (plus my lovely outfit) reminded me of Robert Frosts' Acquainted with the Night. It was a little anachronistic, but it suited the loneliness that one can feel sometimes in this online world...
I have been one acquainted with the night.
I have walked out in rain -- and back in rain.
I have outwalked the furthest city light...
The hair also suited my mood. When I asked Aemilia Case if she could suggest something new of hers to review, she mentioned this hair-and-hat ensemble immediately. I put it on and had to laugh -- fine, she has my clothing sensibility nailed. Um, it's gorgeous hair to match a gorgeous suit. I'm going to wear it to teach tomorrow, just as soon as they make that SL to RL conversion machine.
