Tomorrow is Faerie World!!! I can't believe it's actually here! I am overcome with joy and excitement at the idea of three days hanging out with my friends wearing crazy costumes and indulging in some of the best peoplewatching around! We are going to gab until we lose our voices, give each other henna tattoos, laugh our heads off, dance and spin, and revel in all things sparkly. Wheee!!
I have three outfits planned - one black, backless and gothy; one green, flowy, velvet and lacy; and one red, shiny, short and stripey. Fun!! I will upload pictures when I return.
Here's an awesome webcomic that describes Faerie World perfectly!
And equally joyous, I plan on getting new ink while I'm in Eugene! Not the big ink I've been jonesing for but ink nonetheless. I've been designing and coloring the flash for the tattoo for the past several days. I combined a triquetra and a triskel together. Both represent the trinity - nature, human and the Divine; body, mind, and spirit; maiden, mother and crone - and a balance between the elements. Here are some of the sketches I've made:
And the final flash and color scheme:
It's going to go on my left bicep. I wanted it on my right but I might eventually need to have surgery on that shoulder and I don't want it getting messed up. I'm so excited!!! New ink!!
Ooh, and the totally amazing fantasy artist Meredith Dillman is going to design an ankle bracelet tattoo for me of Rowan branches/leaves/berries intertwined with Indigo plants/flowers to represent the girls! I have two of her faery prints and I love her work!
OK, I need to go pack and finish my stripey armwarmers for the goth costume. I will report back on Monday!
