Geek Girl Princess Nightmare looks gorgeous as her version of Lady Slytherin from Harry Potter! Here's what she had to say...

"(The first note on this is: Lots more of this to come, still a work in progress...also minimal make up again.)   Ok so what is this! So the character here is Lady Slytherin. Wife of Salazar. This was NOT ‘I wanna be a princess’ there was SO much more that went into this than that. Salazar Slytherin’s wife is never mentioned, however we know the ‘heir of Slytherin’ opened the Chamber of Secrets and we know at least two existing family heirlooms passed down for generations. With that knowledge and the time period, plus what we know if the character of Salazar…he had a wife. A wife who has not been named nor shown. As a designer I thought this was an amazing challenge. She had to in a way be a part of him because that is the information we have. Colors we know, attitude we know, many things….we also know how all four founders are portrayed. Knowing this was a big help because each founder with the exception of Hufflepuff had a certain kind of superiority complex. For Slytherin his would have lead to something along the lines of his wife would have had to look better than the female founders of the school he was creating because that would make him look better. If rowena had a diadem his wife would have something better. If Rowena and Hufflepuff wore certain clothes hers would have to be different in another way. There is a whole lot more on the topic of him and on the concept of his wife that I have been working on and will post when it is finished but it is very in depth and I would like it to be perfect before I post it anywhere. This was a really special one for me to do. I have had the design for a very very long time but was having some problems perfecting it. With the help of some pieces that fit what I was looking for, and my friend Jen helping me change those pieces into exactly what they needed to be. And I know some pieces are off for time period...but dealing in fantasy gives a little leeway. Not to mention the almost 30 hours of crystal work put into this…it was finally ‘finished’ but of course nothing is ever fully finished. And of course jewelry replicas of both heirloom items as well as the cursed necklace just because it was the perfect colors and such a brilliant stand out piece.  After wearing it for the weekend I figured out what to change and will be working a lot on this one. This is by far my favorite now, it made me so happy to wear something that was still a character that has some existence but that’s look was fully of my design."
