The Emperor's New Clothes is a common enough fairy tale where the silly Emperor is conned into buying nothing but the "imagination" of the sellers of some fantastical clothing. As my Troll King is being pulled together it's now time to be thinking of his clothes. Do you think I can con a con? I am truly inspired at the moment as I very rarely have costuming ideas planned at the time I begin sculpting. Plus this is more than my eyes need to see if my Troll starts running around naked - so let the research begin.
- Purple was worn only by the rich and powerful as they were the only ones who could afford this expensive color made from snails.
- A Byzantine empresses gave birth in the Purple Chamber. Therefore, Porphyrogenitus ("born to the purple") was the name of an emperor which gained his throne by dynasty and not by force.
And my favorite (as the best things happen by accident) -
Oh no!..Naked body running through! Close your eyes quick!!!
