Isetan's window, and in-store displays, started 2015 off with a visual bang by displaying the anime characters, of Riyoko Ikeda's, The Rose of Versailles.
There are many sub-genres to my passions and addictions, but a large portion of my proverbial obsession pyramid (and, in no particular order) would e makeup, anime, and horror films.
One of the most influential series, The Rose of Versailles, is set in 18th century France and centers around Oscar Francois de Jarjayes, a girl raised as a boy (whose brilliant swordsmanship earns her the title of Commander of Marie Antoinette's Royal Guards).
As Marie Antoinette's bodyguard, Oscar soon realizes the royal court in Versailles is filled with thorns of ruthless ambition, sordid schemes, love affairs, scandals, and political crisis; and, with a revolution brewing in the wind, she is torn between her duties to protect her king and queen, and upholding justice for the impoverished, oppressed peasants of France.
Isn't the art work beautiful?! It's one of my favorite styles of Japanese illustration.
Have you read/seen The Rose of Versailles?
Looking gorgeous one lipstick at a time.
