Onomatopoeia is the word that describes those words who sound like the sounds they describe. As the song goes, it’s “sort of zoom, zip, hiccup, drip
Ding, dong, crunch, crack, bark, meow, whinnie, quack.” But I think we need a word for words that sounds like what they mean. Take diaphanous, for example. Diaphanous usually is used to refer to sheer fabrics, but to me, the word even sounds diaphanous. Isn’t there something sort of light and feminine of the “dis” leading into the soft and delicate sound of “phan” that rolls in to whispery soft “pus.” Of course a word that sounds like that has to mean delicate, light, ethereal.
The Splash (onomatopoeia) dress from SySy’s is diaphanous. Its layers are sheer as cobwebs, a gossamer confection of sheer fabric floating over another layers of fabric and falling like a spindrift on the waves of the ocean. The ombre silver to green color of the fabric adds to the seafoam delicacy as to the waves suggested by the hemline.
I added the lovely Mae platforms from Gos. I love how the scallops on the heel counter slightly echoes the up and down of the handkerchief hem. If you have not yet discovered the magic of Gos Boutique’s new skin matching system, you are in for a treat.
My jewelry is from Kunglers – one of the three new releases in the Empress collection. Berenice of Cilicia was the daughter of Herod Agrippa. Racine wrote a play about her tragic love affair with Titus who became the emperor of Rome. According to Racine and the spare historical record, she and Titus were madly in love, but she was unpopular with the Roman people who didn’t want a foreigner as empress, so he sent her away. Her ambition and her political and military acumen lead her to being described as a mini-Cleopatra. This jewelry does a masterful job of suggesting that era.
All the pictures were shot in the lobby of the hotel for the current MadPea Games hunt – the Room 326 hunt.
