52 Weeks of Color Challenge: Royal Purple

This color reminded me considerably of the color patriarch, that we did last year. I had to call on my friend Stewart to help me out for that one so of course I had to call on him again. He asked me why didn’t I do Messalina, who was, and I quote, “one hell of a lady”.

So here she is, an empress of Rome who had some pretty serious power in her time, but one who lost her life because of her insecurities. She reminds me a bit of Atia of the Julii from the HBO series Rome, if any of you have seen that. What machinations, what intrigue! What a dreadful need for power and position that led her to get rid of (i.e. assassinate) any rivals for the throne, and eventually lose her own head.

But what a head it must have been! I chose the Artemis skin from Unique to give me a patrician look with deadly purpose.

    I agree with Rudhmellowen; ‘Move over Venus’ because you defiantly give her a run for her money looking that that.
