Week 22- Marico Fayre and Pia - Morgan le Fay-Glamour

Top: Marico Fayre
Bottom: Pia   

Pia: For the week 22 we were given the theme:

Morgan le Fay-Glamour
*"Glamour"-old Scottish word that describes the spell cast by faeries and witches to alter the appearance of reality. Glamour makes something appear other than it really is
*Morgan le Fay-bad rap in Christian Version of Arthur and Guinvere-enemy/works with devil/evil
*Good Rap-"Morrigan", triple Goddess, divine, from isle of Avalon, fairy blood, magical powers, defender of fairy faith/works with nature
*Lesson-all illusion has a price

I decided to concentrate on the glamour side of the theme, and I took my inspiration from the old Hollywood movie stars, and the glamour they generated from the silver screen, and the publicity photos taken of them  (I took this photo in December, so it was way before Liz Taylor died but she was one of the movie stars I was thinking of when I was planning this shoot). I really loved the theme and I'm pretty pleased with the end result :-)

Rowandevoe and Geekgirly Week 23 - Blue and Orange

Left: Geekgirly
Right: Rowandevoe

I was matched with the lovely and VERY talented Rowandevoe.  Blue and Orange was the theme for  our Diptychs.  Since I am so busy with school and everything I took a photo from my archives.  This is from my second attempt at a 365 project.  

I really like how the colours in these photos are so complimentary.  :)

Week 23 - Bronwen Hyde & the melody censor - Green/Red

Left: Bronwen Hyde

tmc: This is my second time in the Divine Diptych Project to be paired with Bronwen, and was really excited to find out that she had picked red/Green as our theme for this round. I adore both red and green and often wear them together, which was my original plan when I first read the theme, but we decided to go with one colour each in the end. And really, when else will I get to wear red shoes and tights together?!
