They call me slightly high-strung yellow...

This one's for Otenth. You asked for yellow, and when I slid a tiny bit on amid my customary suits of solemn black (as Shakespeare put it), I realized that I was STILL wearing school colors. Damnit, now I'm a gothy Georgia Tech cheerleader.

On the bright (sunny) side, I remembered a snatch of lyrics from Soul Coughing:

Quadrilateral I was
Now I warp like a smile
Yellow no. 5
Yellow no. 5, 5, 5
-- Soul Coughing, Bus to Beelzebub

Here, too, is a broad application of freebies. Tights are paper couture freebies in yellow, hair is Truth freebie in yellow, and the dress is a freebie from Mojo! hyasynth suggested the blond hair. Wearing blond with black makeup feels vaguely rebellious, like I've come full circle into normalcy or something.

The hat is new from Schadenfreude, and has a beak on the front of it, and a ruff of feathers. When I saw it, I accused Allegory of using Skeksi bits (remember the evil guys from Dark Crystal?) in the hat's creation. So very cool.

Now perhaps I've stopped coughing and can get back to sleep.
