My feelings for The Avengers have shown no signs of subsiding. I think this might be permanent. Not that it’s a bad thing! It’s like Harry Potter all over again, but with kick-ass instead of magic. And then there’s Loki. Let’s not even breach the topic of my love for this character. We’d be here all day as I dish out my philosophical/literary analysis of him.
And I think he makes a lovely frost giant, despite what he thinks.

I hope all will be well. We must be patient: but I
cannot choose but weep, to think they should lay him
i' the cold ground. My brother shall know of it:
and so I thank you for your good counsel. Come, my
coach! Good night, ladies; good night, sweet ladies;
good night, good night.
The theme of my summer appears to be Shakespeare! Isn't it timely that archaeologists recently uncovered the Curtain Theatre?
Ophelia in a late Edwardian-Style dress. Although women had not yet started to cut their hair short at this point (circa WWI), I liked her with shorter hair.

I’m in the process of designing some props and costumes (and maybe some scenery?) for a version of Shakespeare’s Macbeth set in the Victorian Era. This isn’t actually for anything, although I wish someone would make a version of Macbeth set in the 1870’s.
I feel like Lady Macbeth would have some pretty menacing home furnishings, the kind of chairs that would scare you when you were little, and that nobody really wants to take home after the funeral.
I had a hell of a time making teapots look anything other than fat and cheery. These are still sort of happy I suppose, or maybe that’s jut my teapot affinity. ‘Ponderous’ wasn’t working out, since things that are squat and bottom-heavy just look cute, so I modeled these after funeral urns instead.
