The empress’ wife.
This is development art for an original project you can see more of here!
Two wing wraps are available and ready to ship! http://missmonster.myshopify.com/
Hand dyed 90” long wing wrap. Drapes over the shoulders or can be wrapped around your body. Add a fancy cloak clasp for an even more dramatic look! These are hand dyed with lasting high quality materials.
Each wrap is one of a kind, no two will ever be the same. I’m offering these as i make them, you are buying the exact wrap pictured. They take awhile to produce but i will try to make them available as often as i can.
The red wrap has cool iridescent dots while the grey has dramatic gold accents. All dyes and paints and been heat set.
50/50 wool/polyester material. Do not machine wash or dry clean! Spot clean only with water, do not use solvents. The fabric is dyed and heat set but due to the handmade nature of this piece please treat it with care.
Inspired by the rich gold and black of Dolce and Gabbana’s A/W 2012 collection, I saw this fabric and knew it was meant to be. Just finished over Thanksgiving weekend, it’s been a great relief since I haven’t sewn anything this ambitious in a long time.

Amazing Arabic calligraphy.
Al Mutanabbi’s proverb:
“Just because you see the lion’s teeth, don’t assume that the lion is smiling”
The quote is written exactly six times through the image of this lion.

Necropolis will launch at the end of August as an ongoing weekly webcomic. Stay tuned!
ugh I love this! Can’t wait for it to be a webcomic! :3
The Painted Garden of the Villa di Livia, Prima Porta, Rome
This lush painted garden covered the walls of a semi-subterranean chamber, probably a cool triclinium (dining room) for summer banquets, in the suburban Villa of Livia Drusilla, the wife of the Emperor Augustus.
This Second style fresco, the most ancient example of continuous garden painting (30 - 20 BCE), presents a variety of plants and birds rendered in a naturalistic way.
Found something interesting, Penelope Cruz in Broken Embraces matches exactly with Setsuna!
Naoko Takeuchi actually used a real Chanel dress designed by Karl Lagerfeld in that picture with Setsuna, and neither Setsuna or Penelope were the first to wear the dress. Naomi Campbell was.
Basically, the dress has a history of attracting fierce women to it.
