I'd let you win my heart again

Luminary recently sent out the teasers for their offerings at the upcoming Fantasy Gacha Carnival event, which opens on 1 February.

This round is themed 'Winter Wonderland', and Augurer explained that she was inspired by Shakespeare's 'The Winter's Tale', the story of an insanely jealous king who believes his queen to be unfaithful, and so condemns her and their infant daughter. (At the end of the play, both mother and daughter and restored to their rightful positions.) There is a theory that this play was inspired King Henry VIII and Anne Boleyn, while the princess represents Elizabeth I, Shakespeare's great patroness.

The initial necklace is the common from the gacha and is inspired by famous portrait of Anne Boleyn. You'll probably need to get a few friends together for a swapping party to make sure you get your letter! The crown is the rare item, and there are three different colours if you want to chase them all down.
Also in these pictures are the new Elisa hair from Calico. It's a pared-back version of the Enisa hair, which you can see in this post.  The high hairline is very Tudor, as in those days fashionable ladies would shave or pluck their hairlines to conform to the standard of beauty.

The skin is new from Essences at this round of  The Dressing Room Fusion. Unusally for a discount skin, it seems to be free of 'makeup', which makes it a great base for adding your own layers. There are three tones, and each is only 70L.

Finally, I'm wearing the beautiful Celtic-inspired Ceridwen gown from Evie's Closet, teamed with the sash from GSpot's Aphrodisia outfit. Some trinkets from A&Ana and Glow Studio finish the look.
