I recently joined a new fitness studio called The Bar Method. It’s a ballet based fitness class that is extremely intense, but is
*Cracks knuckles* Alright, lovies. This is my very first attempt at submitting to be on a Design Team and I figure it’s best just to close my eyes and take the leap, yeah? Well, thankfully I kept my eyes open while I was coloring. (Otherwise this would be pretty impressive). March, unfortunately is my craziest month of the year, so I wasn’t able to finish this project in time, but I decided to still tackle the first two of a set of cards I’ve been conceptualizing from Simply Betty’s line of Steampunk Fairy Tales & Myths figures. I am so in love with them. (Honestly, I love all the Steampunk images, but I’ve always had a not-so-secret love affair with twisted fairytale imagery and stories)
|Glass Slipper? Try Prada|
For my first, I chose Cinderella. I love that she kind of looks like Marie Antoinette. I wanted her to be especially pale, almost like a ghostly version of the traditional storybook character, which I think is fitting since it kind of looks like she’s chilling out in a graveyard. (And admiring her awesome shoe)
Skin – E0000-E01 & E93
Hair – E30-34 & E37
Dress – B91-B99 & E40-E43
|Rapunzel, Rapunzel let down your hair|
The next I worked on was Rapunzel.I think her sweetness is a bit more contrasting with Cinderella’s darker feel. I thought it was interesting that she was pregnant, and while I suppose you could assume this was part of her happily ever after, I chose to see it as Rapunzel getting naughty with her prince while trapped in that tower of hers. *Brow Waggle* Anyway….
Skin: E00-E02 & E93
Dress: RV32-RV34 & RV95-RV99
I wanted these to be a sort of matched set. I’ve planned, when I’ve finished them all, to create a sweet little box to put them in to give like a stationary gift set. I can’t wait to color and assemble the rest so that I can post up the completed project! Now onto Snow White and Little Red Riding Hood!!
