Within White Shadows
______I don't watch much television, but when I do, it's either nostalgic anime or cartoon episodes streamed through the internet or a certain something on HBO. That something on HBO? Why, it's no other than my mother and I's guilty pleasure: da da dum... True Blood.
______Go ahead and judge me--I've heard it all. Your petty peasant insults do no more harm to my wellbeing than flinging marshmallows at iron would.
______Moving on--one of my favorite characters from the show is Sophie Anne, or who I refer to as the queen bitch. She's the vampire queen of Louisiana and doesn't hesitate to let people know that. She carries herself regally, though she's also a little distracted and has the crazy-smart-weird intelligence of... well, a crazy-smart-intelligent person. Basically, she's a sinister little lady who can fry people's minds with her words and charming good looks, and well, I wouldn't mind dressing like someone who can do that. And so I did!
______Since Queenie is old as balls, being the vampire queen and everything, she adorns herself in timeless pieces with classic cuts and is always seen wearing the traditional colors of black and white. She always finishes her look with glossy, stained lips, soft curls of hair, and ornate diamond earrings. And, you know, the blood of her enemies.
______Dress like a frilly cupcake, walk like a capricious chainsaw--how's that for a strong female character?
______Though I can't cover myself in the blood of my enemies (legally, at least), I am able to wear a darker lipstick. I don't know if I give off the same, classy vibe as Sophie Anne does when she wears it, though; I probably resemble some kid who ravaged their mother's arsenal of makeup. I've also got this silky white blazer along with tons of pearls and fancy filigree earrings, just like Queenie would wear.
______My momma also played around with hair today, resulting in a a collection of curls smushed elegantly atop my head. She's becoming quite the hairstylist.
______Do you ever draw inspiration from other sources, like television or movie characters, or maybe even (gasP) video game characters? If you need some ideas pertaining to dressing like your favorite TV character, click the link!
