Kitty-Butler

“When I see her,” I said, “it’s like - I don’t know what it’s like. It’s like I never saw anything at all before. It’s like I am filling up, like a wine-glass when it’s filled with wine. I watch the acts before her and they are like nothing - they’re like dust. Then she walks on the stage and - she is so pretty; and her suit is so nice; and her voice is so sweet… She makes me want to smile and weep, at once. She makes me sore, here.” I placed a hand upon my chest, upon the breast-bone. “I never saw a girl like her before. I never knew that there were girls like her…”

PinkKryptonite– Omgoodness, this set was fun to make! With the characters’ sexuality, various gender roles, and individual personalities, there was a good amount of elements to work with. I was originally going to do just Nan, but then, what’s one without the other? So, voila! Here’s the beautiful pair, Nan King & Kitty Butler<3

Notes: (1) I have yet to read the book. I have only seen the mini series, so forgive me if my interpretation is kind of “off.” (2) I always felt that Nan was the more “feminine” of the two, so I made sure that her outfit reflects that contrast with Kitty. (3) Nan’s ring: A pearl to symbolize where she came from (oysters), and a rose to symbolize her first-sight desire for Kitty.
