The Remorse of Victor Frankenstein

(click to enlarge)
STORYLINE: "Often, after the rest of the family had retired for the night, I took the boat, and passed many hours upon the water. Sometimes, with my sails set, I was carried by the wind; and sometimes, after rowing into the middle of the lake, I left the boat to pursue its own course, and gave way to my own miserable reflections. I was often tempted, when all was at peace around me, and I the only unquiet thing that wandered restless in a scene so beautiful and heavenly -- if I except some bat, or the frogs, whose harsh and interrupted croaking was heard only when I approached the shore -- often, I say, I was tempted to plunge into the silent lake, that the waters might close over me and my calamities forever." - Victor Frankenstein, From Mary Shelley's Frankenstein, chapter 9

A Tattered Page [*citation needed] is a brand new event from the Cursed crew. Designers create items from their own imagination inspired by words from the selected novel for that round. (That means no styles or ideas taken from movie, TV shows, plays, comics or other adaptions.) I love this concept. It's true, when reading a novel, an image is created in the mind of the reader. Each person's inner visualization is unique to them. For the first round,  Mary Shelley's gothic novel classic, Frankenstein was picked. Contrary to all the many Hollywood versions of the story, the original is very different. It's been wonderful to see what all the designers came up with. Each item comes with a quote from Frankenstein that inspired the item (that's the *citation needed part of the event). The event runs from November 7-November 30th. This is a store to store hop, just look for the Tattered Page display in each store. Future rounds of Tattered page will have central Library theme location. For more information, previews of all items on sale, and links to each location, go to: A Tattered Page

This post was inspired by Dingy and wonderfully descriptive moment in the book selected by Roawenwood. The Broken Melancholia Dinghy will not be sold like this again after the event ends, it's an exclusive. The boat comes in scripted, and unscripted versions, 2-4 land impact. It has 18 couple animations. It also comes with a paddle and cattails.

STORYLINE: "... I thought of the heroic and suffering Elizabeth, whom I tenderly loved, and whose existence was bound up in mine. I thought also of my father and surviving brother: Should I by my base desertion leave them exposed and unprotected to the malice of the fiend whom I had let loose among them?" - Victor Frankenstein, From Mary Shelley's Frankenstein, chapter 9

Wow, this was such a hard shot to do. I hope you guys like it. Dr Frankenstein is wearing a cool late-Regency / Early Victorian outfit by Avatar Bizarre. It's one piece with coat and pants, and also includes hat, shoes, and cravat. You can choose from many colors, and one of the colors is an exclusive. I love this ring so much! It's the Wedding Night ring by Bliensen + MaiTai for Tattered Page. The black color version is an exclusive to the event. You can get it in gemstones blue, red, green, or purple, and either black skeleton hands or ivory. It's mod so you can adjust it for a good fit. This angsty pose, The Night, is by NanTra. It worked great here for Victor's conflicted feelings. Adding movement for underwater is the Ken Urei hair by Argrace. This wonderful Rays Mort Vivant Shadow pale skin tone by Tableau Vivant is on sale at the Xiasumi School Festival. It includes appliers for hands and feet. I love the details around the eyes and the highlight on the nose. To match the pale skintone, I used the Fingernail Naturals freebie gift from A:S:S. I love the Winter eyes by S0NG, I picked up the green ones recently. Below the surface is a set I built using the Kelp by Aley and MeadowWorks. With all this nice yummy seagrass laying around, I could not resist letting momma manatee and baby from Aqua Shop Gonbe roam around in it. It's manatee heaven down there afterall. lol You can see them hiding in the seagrass on the lower left side.
