The Lovers of Valdaro.
Believed to be no older than twenty years of age when death occurred.
Over 5,000 years old.
Locked in an eternal embrace.
Tragically, their story is unknown.
Ironically, they were found in the city of Mantua. In Italy.
The city Shakespeare chose to set the story of Romeo & Juliet.

Water-stained violin proven to be the one that played Nearer my God to Thee by Wallace Hartley as the Titanic sank is found. [x]
It is the instrument that he played as the ship went down in the Atlantic, and that he later used as a buoyancy aid once Titanic went down.
The violin was discovered only by chance when the son of an amateur musician found it in his attic. It was given to his mother by her violin teacher and was left gathering dust.
The discovery was almost too good to be true, prompting experts to have the relic forensically examined by some of the most revered scientific bodies in Britain.
Now, after seven years of testing at a cost of tens of thousands of pounds, the water-stained violin has been proven to be the one played by Hartley on the night of the tragedy.
These pictures show how incredibly well-preserved the rose wood violin is despite its age and it being exposed to the sea for 10 days after the sinking.
There are two long cracks on its body that are said to have been opened up by moisture damage.
The photos also show the corroded engraved silver plate screwed onto the base of the fiddle that provided scientists with they key proof of its authenticity.
The historic violin, said to be worth a six figure sum, will go on public display at the Belfast City Hall, where Titanic was built, at the end of March.
Negotiations are also under way to exhibit it in museums around the world including America. It is likely to be auctioned off in the future.
Titanic experts have described it as the most important artefact associated with the infamous liner to have come to light.
This outfit was inspired partly by some of the really wonderful costumes in Game of Thrones and the Elfs in Lord of the Rings such as Thranduil and others. All parts of this were made by myself, the pattern is my own, other than the boots of course, however I did have to learn a little leather working to make them fit right (no one on earth makes knee highs that fit me)….
The nails are also crafted, lavenderlace showed me how to make them on a costume we worked on together last year and i just duplicated her process, she also showed me how to do the knot work!
I made this outfit for my schools Annual Masquerade and a Emilie Autumn Concert as well, I might also wear it for Anime Boston this coming May but we will see.
There will be a detachable cloak that goes with this that is not yet finished. As well as a bottom part for the mask that will also be detachable that will go over my mouth and the rest of my nose, I will post those when they’re done.
This is one of the hardest designs I’ve every tried pulling off, I hope you guys like it.

This Is a outfit that I made quite a while ago, But I’ve done a little work on it so it would be ready for Anime Boston, and maybe The Devil Carnival as well.
Those are real antlers, I do most of my casting from them for my other projects, Also the side cape is detachable, it’s magnetic so easy on and off. I also have a flag that goes with this outfit I don’t normally use it thought it’s very tall.
Also the The mask on my head isn’t a mask it’s a head dress you can’t see though it at all! XD and the boots and pants I didn’t make, but other then that everything else is handmade by me =]
Guess what a got a Daily Deviation on DevaintART today!!! =]
