Empress of Underworld by Hisietari Empress of Underworld by Hisietari
Also on tumblr: [link]

Inspired by and dedicated to the remarkable Louise Brealey and her performance of Molly Hooper.


She rules in Ice
She guards the Dead
She
Empress of Underworld

Her crown is steel
And steel is her knife
When she looks at your heart
Records a life

All kings want her heart
And break it they may
She treats them in accordance
They end up on her tray

She sees your soul
She sees you right through
She does not care if you're no angel
As long as you're true

And don't be afraid
For warmth and justice are hers
Her Majesty of Ice
The Empress of Underworld



aluminium wire, silver-glittered organdy, sewing thread, abominable not-super glue, miniature glue, rhinestones, silver cross, silver headband

Thank you! :blush:
I'm fairly clumsy with poetry, but couldn't help it here. A description would have been harder. ^^;

Something like so. ;) Because I use organdy, I can't just glue the pieces. That's why I use a sewing technique, the petals look slightly different and aren't as easy to shape. It's a tiny geek difference, I know, but to some it's probably a huge difference and blasphemy (hurr), thought I should point it out. ^^;
