Death and all her friends

Some music, because Whit taught me.¬† ūüôā¬† ¬†Will I lose friends for Coldplay?

I know, it’s already all Hallow’s on the far side of the world, but in Europe and the Americas we’re still in the Eve!¬† Happy Hallowe’en, my lovely friends!¬† How about a little gift from G Field today?¬† The wonderful Roodvosje shared Death Girl in her lovely post last week, and I fell so in love with it that I had to share it with you in my own way!

Black is tough to wear — I had to weave special darke magicks about it to keep the white powder sugar that falls from my donuts from showing against it… but the cloak has such a lovely deep crimson lining and beautiful buckle detail!

A quick note about the hood.¬† Like hats, hoods are tricky, only moreso.¬†¬†G Field¬†did a fantastic job in leaving enough hair space around the skull, so I was able to find something.¬† I love¬†Analog Dog, and¬†Val fit very nicely.¬† I had to do a little editing on some of the strands on the back of my head — you can edit, and go into “edit linked” mode and shrink those pesky pokers and move them individually.¬† I did a larger piece on this a year or so ago, it’s tricky work but not bad.¬† FIRST FIRST FIRST, always make a copy of the hair!¬† The hair will always look horrid when you take the hood off, so you want to work with a copy!

I’m so totally in love with this dress and cloak that I think I’ll keep it about.. for whenever I need to show my darke side.

Happy Hallowe’en everyone!¬† Mahalo — a hui hou!
