I always find it interesting how each of my characters develop their own story and I am so glad they are all willing to share them with me. Esmeralda is no different. My first inspiration came from the movie, "Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them". I loved the singer's long nose in the movie but with her ears she looked 'fae-like'.
This may have been where I planned to start, but my paths always seem to go off on different directions - so in comes another new path/inspiration.
Now to be a performer, one must have lots of bling. The lights hitting the stage, reflecting off jewelry and sequins, and all that jazz! Good thing (as a Brownie), Esmeralda loves lot of bling! Bling is like the light of Magic... all sparkly and new. As Leprechauns have their pot of Gold... Brownies have their Bling!
