did you know dracula was mormon? well…i mean he was a bigamist and had three wives, could’ve been on big love. anyway, his three wives lived in his castle with him and found it amusing to prey on his guests. now you may remember from some dracula posts a few weeks ago, that one of these guests was his lawyer, jonathan harker. while staying with the count, mr. harker got pretty familiar with these horrific vampire brides and they tortured him like crazies. think about it though, if you’re immortal…i bet you really hone your sense of style. hmmm…also, these brides would snap that bella bitch like a twig, LIKE A TWIG.

thank you all for the great submissions, keep ‘em coming. several of you suggested marie anotinette. to be honest, i’ve been avoiding the ill fated queen since i started because she is pretty daunting. however, since i’ve been denied internet this past week and have plenty of posts to catch up to i figured i’d give it a shot. everybody knows the drill, she had tons of money, was ill prepared to run a country and had a penchant for crazy hats. there, done. enjoy.

although she headlines in the odyssey, circe is a common figure in greek mythology. she wasn’t exactly up their with the olympians but she’s still a member of the club. her father was the sun god and mother was some sort of sea dwelling deity…somewhere between a god and a nymph. circe made her home in the clearing of a forest on an island, she spent her days turning enemies into animals, fun. upon the warning of his men and the foresight of hermes, odysseus was able to outsmart her and seek refuge at her mansion. taking into account she’s a witch and greek, i think it’s safe to say you’d see some draping and some crazy in her wardrobe.
