Literary Heroes

This is my most appreciated section even though it is clearly empty for the moment. And you know why? It’s because I love imagining a historically inspired garb for a fictional character I am reading about but I’ve never taken a chance on any of those. And it’s a shame. That’s why, as part of my 2017 resolutions, I added this section in my portfolio. Hope you will enjoy!

Ophélie from La Passe-Miroir 

pictures to come

The character: Ophélie is a reader, she can retrace an object’s past by touching it, but she also has a rarer ability, she can travel through mirrors. She’s extremely gifted and works at her great uncle’s museum but she is very clumsy as well as introverted. Along the story we will also learn that she is a very strong, independent young woman who can also speak her mind.

King Brendan from The Wildwood chronicles

pictures to come

The character: King Brendan is the sixteenth Bandit King of Wildwood and although very humble, he is quickwitted with his words and brutally honest. He is quite an ambiguous character as he fights for the good of the wood yet is seen as the villain in the eyes of the South Wooders and the North Wooders alike. Anyway, he wears an old army officer’s coat and a crown of eastern teaberry and that made me love him.

Queen Titania from A Midsummer Night’s Dream

pictures to come

The character: Titania is the beautiful queen of the fairies. She’s a woman who resists the attempts of her husband, Oberon, to make a knight of the young Indian prince that she has been given. Titania’s brief, potion-induced love for Nick Bottom, whose head Puck has transformed into that of an ass, yields Shakespeare’s play’s foremost example of the contrast motif.
