oh look, it’s arwen from lord of the rings! how joyful a morning this is. last night i had a rather involved conversation with a friend about which region of middle earth would have the best fashion week. the choices we came up with were the shire, gondor, mordor, rivendell and edoras. so naturally when i woke up this morning i figured i’d post on arwen. for those who aren’t familiar with the series, arwen is an elven princess. elves are the most beautiful beings in middle earth, appropriately played by liv tyler, cate blanchett and orlando bloom in the peter jackson movies. she plays a big role in the destruction of the ring and salvation of middle earth and all ends well for her when she marries aragorn and becomes queen of gondor. that’s the short version, read the book.

So here we have Aphrodite. There’s not really much to say about her, very self explanatory. She’s the Olympian goddess of love, beauty and sexuality. Whenever you feel that little twang at your heart or…um, elsewhere…that’s her. Well, that is if you worship the Olympian gods and if you do that’s totally fine.

i give you bertha mason. this one may be a little bit of a stretch, but indulge me. undoubtedly my favorite character in the charlotte bronte novel, jane eyre. bertha made the story a whole lot more interesting and is characteristic in novels of the time. there were often mysterious elements that could be construed as ghosts, predators or in bertha’s case, insane attic dwelling first wives. indeed, bertha was mr. rochester’s first wife and he felt obliged to take care of her despite her lunacy. naturally, bertha hated everything about jane eyre and took violent action against those around her as a result. who could forget the melodramatic shredding of jane’s wedding veil? and then of course, she really lost it and burned down the entire house, killing herself in the process. she was a sad figure, essentially imprisoned at the hands of a man who rejected her and forced to watch the life she was meant to have be given to jane. too bad so sad. she probably wore whatever she could find up in that crazy attic.
