"Oh, Modified Rapture!" This is so beautiful. The costume is absolutely gorgeous, with all the pattern details and the exquisite folds. You even manage to capture her slightly snooty expression. Despite all her beauty she was a bit of a spoiled brat.

I love this picture very very much!

Oh yes! It was years ago now, and being far too shy for the stage and a better musician than actor, I played was one of the band members and got to stumble 'drunk' across the stage. I'm still not entirely sure all of the other musicians were acting ;)

I find this quite elegant. I just adore her fan (of course!) and the colors I can imagine as well. It also appears I am being given a coy, half-smile.

I find this quite timely as I've just finished reading Myths and Legends of Japan wherein this piece by Gilbert and Sullivan is mentioned several times.
