Thalestrix is the final fourteenth character I’ve chosen to create. She’s my mystery guest for this fantastical banquet (see details of the competition at MissWorthy's Stuff)
After discovering the marvelous atmosphere Illamasqua is offering us to enter, I wanted to make a character sprung both from mythology, and my own imagination.
As every single creature of the Enchanted Forest has its own way to reveal the colors in the darkness, its own potion and filter, and thus, its own trump in the Quest of Immortality, I imagined another unique being to complete the Feast. So was born Thalestrix, inspired by the ancient queen of the Amazons, and also from my crazy dreams...
She wears tribal and warlike marks, but her best weapon is the seduction... She needs nobody and draws her strength from freedom and nature. She always turns every enjuries to advantage.
During the banquet, she'll be as dreaded as lusted after...
That is the reason why the main tone of this look is a wild green sublimated by different shades and glints of gold and “mordorés” (as we’d say it in French).
At last, lined by a deep green, the lips wear a dark burgundy red to remind of the fiery and bloody character the Lady may show off; and the strokes of gold enhance her dignity, her pride, and her mysterious grace.
This was my mystery guest for the Illamsqua banquet.
Hope you enjoyed!
NB: Unfortunately the camera is not fair to reality, for it had many iridescent tinges of green, some sparkles, and other shimmering hues... I had to make it clear because I wanted to use a green close to the green of the Art of Darkness collection, which is an emerald one; but the pictures give a bit wrong cruder colour of my look...
Il y a quelques semaines, la marque de cosmétiques Illamasqua a sorti une superbe collection nommée "Art of Darkness" (L'Art des Ténèbres). Pour accompagner cette édition de somptueuses couleurs et matières, la marque organise un concours, en partenariat avec l'école londonienne de maquillage Muse et la blogueuse MissWorthy.
Les visuels de la collection représentent un mystérieux banquet réunissant des créatures toutes plus fantastiques les unes que les autres... Il s'agissait d'en inventer l'ultime convive (le 14e personnage) par la création d'un maquillage original.
Je me suis donc amusée à inventer le look d'une sorte de reine des Amazones, nommée Thalestrix!
Qu'en pensez-vous? Et pour celles et ceux qui y participent, je suis curieuse de découvrir vos "créatures"...
