Meet Evensong. She was made for a personal swap with scarlet_nights.




She is a gothic fairy, preferring the cool darkness of the night rather than the harsh light of daytime. Her clothes definitely reflect this. She is clad in black velvet and blue lace. The only things that speak to her fairy heritage are her wings and the bit of sparkle to her clothes.

Close up of her top, complete with hand painted and glittered swirly designs


Close up of the skirt, with similar designs and a lacy underskirt


The designs on her clothes match her makeup


She also has lacy arm warmers and blue wire jewelry


Her wings are detachable, in case she ever needs to go incognito


And the veining in the wing, which follows the wire and has a bit of sparkle as well


C&C welcome!

Her wings are gorgeous. How did you make them? Did you follow a tutorial or make it up yourself?

Thanks for the wing links - I think I bookmarked the Fantasy Film ones some time ago.  Love the other page too.... I'll have to try it!
