rusalka by Lizchen-R rusalka by Lizchen-R
"In most versions, the rusalka is an unquiet dead being, associated with the "unclean force". People who die violently and before their time must live out their designated time on earth as a spirit.
The ghostly version is the soul of a young woman who had died in or near a river or a lake and came back to haunt that waterway." (c) Thank you, Wikipedia

I seriously have no idea what kind of home improvement store do you have in US, but here you can find epoxy resin in almost every "varnish, paint, glue" kind of section

This would be an interesting costume to make, pearls, awesome pearls ... I, too, am in love with the simply beautiful pearl, with Amethyst or Rubies, Rainbow Florite or Onyx, Pearls make almost Anything gorgeous!  :icongivemesmilesplz::iconcarameldansenplz:  Most of my Performances, as a teen, included a costume with that extra touch of Pearl  :giggle:  I was taught to restring my great Aunt's pearls when I doted on them to her.  She told me that Every true Pearl owner must take special care, from cleaning them to restringing, it's a GREAT responsibility!  :iconlovewhiteplz:

I will go on, and on about pearls ... :iconlamaplz: :cuddle:

Спасибо, это коруна все-таки, не корона. Почитайте какие-нибудь книжки, где русалки либо по крови ходят, либо где их мужик себе в дом притащил, они вполне себе любили разодеться.

I know the rusalka from a very old computer roleplay game: Betrayal at Krondor. They were some blue undead girls died in water by force like in your description. You look like a more beautiful version. I hope you will rest in peace soon. Your outfit is very stunning. :heart:

Thank you so much! Rusalki don't look like dead in Russian fairytales and I think they are quite happy with their undead life.They sing, swing on trees, dance round dances and joke over travelers.  Girls can whine about their ruined lives to humans, but that shouldn't be taken very seriously it's more like a tradition, not actual regret, if you understand that I mean
