Nuala Shippe


There has never been a time without unicorns. We live forever! We are as old as the sky, old as the moon! We can be hunted, trapped; we can even be killed if we leave our forests, but we do not *vanish*. Am I truly the last?

-- Peter S. Beagel

O Autumn, laden with fruit, and stain'd
With the blood of the grape, pass not, but sit
Beneath my shady roof; there thou may'st rest,
And tune thy jolly voice to my fresh pipe,
And all the daughters of the year shall dance!
Sing now the lusty song of fruits and flowers.

-- William Blake

(Lusty poem for a lusty lass!)

Halloween Series: Ezura Xue

The stripped and shapely

Maple grieves

The ghosts of her

Departed leaves.

The ground is hard,

As hard as stone.

The year is old,

The birds are flown.

And yet the world,

In its distress,

Displays a certain

Loveliness---

- John Updike

BLAZING in gold and quenching in purple,
Leaping like leopards to the sky,
Then at the feet of the old horizon
Laying her spotted face, to die;   

Stooping as low as the kitchen window,        
Touching the roof and tinting the barn,
Kissing her bonnet to the meadow,
— And the juggler of day is gone!

-- Emily Dickenson (Poem XLIII)

Halloween Series: Cutea Benelli

Apparently it takes a busy blogging schedule to keep me out of trouble, so I've begun the annual Halloween Series. For the rest of this month, my blog will be taken over by some amazing people in amazing Halloween outfits. The photos are their own creations, and they've graciously allowed me to host them here.

To kick off the series, Cutea Benelli is in her own Zombie Bride dress, gorgeously gruesome. Click to see the entire picture! (SLURL to Grim Bros.)

What dissertation?

purpleandbrown02


Mmmmm, lush porcelain skin with deep eyes and lips, so perfect for any time of year. The new skin release from Cupcakes is for Halloween, but truly, I'd wear this to an Easter tea. It seemed appropriate to wear deep colors, a crown of light and branches from Atelier AM, a soft purple dress from Shirohato. The turn of the year lures us into a rich pile of velvety contemplation... (And I stole the shoes from Mourna.)

Oops, I did it again

progress01


There's a new suit from ~silentsparrow~, as lush and coppery as it is buckled (it comes in other colors, of course, but...but RUST!). This suit shattered my internet silence rather completely. I put it on, along with the Luna hair from Calico Ingmann Creations, and headed straight to Babbage and photographed my li'l fingers off. (SLURL to ~silentsparrow~)
