PTT: Heavy Heart to Carry by MangoSirene PTT: Heavy Heart to Carry by MangoSirene
"I was a heavy heart to carry,
But he never let me down.
When he had me in his arms,
My feet never touched the ground."

Been trying to resist posting this one for a little while, but the song keeps playing on my Pandora station so I can't wait anymore~! It's probably my favorite picture I have of my Rue cosplay, I just love the color combination of the reds and greens. :D

Dear Nina, I love your dance and ballet pictures, making me dreaming. Keep on dancing and never loose ground while flying.  ;-)
Usually I am not a specialist in ballet, but after watching the australian tv series "dance academy", which has been staged pretty good
and emotional, I started being interested in ballet scenes and art. A very special and wonderful world, and definately very hard work.
Best wishes and greetings from germany.

After seeing all your beautiful pictures I looked up Princess Tutu on Netflix.... You have got me hooked. In less than 3 days I am already on the 22nd episode...

I feel in love! I recommended my few friends to watch it. I finished it yesterday and I cried, it shouldn't have ended. :( I love the love-hate relationship between Duck and Fakir

I love your princess tutu cosplay! The lines in the photo are amazing along with the color combinations. I am in an art class right now and I was wondering if I could use this picture as a reference in one of my projects? I would be more than happy to credit you and your photographer, but if you prefer I not use it I completely understand either way. Thank you for your time and keep up the beautiful work!

Prettiest Rue cosplayer EVER. <3 My only gripe is that I somehow never saw you at Youmacon, despite being there all day Saturday AND Sunday. Arrgh. ):

This could be a dumb/obvious question, but are you actually a dancer? Those pointe shoes are really pretty. <3

Thank you! :D And aww, I'm sorry! ;__; I wore her Odile tutu from early on Friday morning until about 5 PM before I changed into Fawn - but we were caught up in private shoots for most of the day so my Mytho and I didn't get much time to walk around the con!

I am a dancer, but ballet is really not my forte, haha! I'm much more into hip-hop and modern. :)

At the risk of being quite repetitive as compared to the other comments: ooooo, pretty.

This particular representation of Rue is one of my faves -- and one of the best I've seen, which kinda helps contribute. Not only is the costume itself great, I believe the pose captures the essence of Rue: a strength more fragile than at first blush, because she has a deep longing... as well as dark secrets.

I am also a fan of non-centered photographs (although the form is kind of mimicked with the white post and arches on the (viewer's) right; a nice touch) so this is very yay.

Beautiful.

For me it's Laby fics, since that's how I found them. They're really great for that "modern fairytale" feel.

Oh yes, after I first discovered them I had to run out and get the Lungs CD and rip it so I could listen to it forever on my compy. I love putting it on for fanfic reading time.
