Not only did he like her, he was fascinated by everything about her. The self-forgotten expression on her face, the movements of her arms as she danced, the muscles under her skirt. He only knew being in love from stories of his nannies.
At that moment she interrupted her dance and looked over at him. His pulse accelerated.
"There you are again," she opened the conversation.
He looked at her in silence and blinked up at her against the sunlight. Her voice rushed into his ears and for a moment he was unable to speak. How much he had missed those dark brown, almost black eyes and full lips! Her face was deeply tanned from living in the open air. She radiated calm and looked at him as before without any shyness.
He pointed next to himself into the grass. She sat down and he sucked in the scent of her skin. The uneasy feeling in his stomach intensified. He could interpret it in the meantime, but not turn it off. She lifted her jingle ring again and began to play. With closed eyes he listened. From afar the sounds of the city blew across the river and mixed with the music. Her voice, the smile, the headless tambourine and the scent of her skin enchanted him.
This is my story.
First thought when I saw the new Ebon Shoulders was: it was made for a flamenco dancer...And this is how I imagined cosplay character.
The traje de flamenca ("flamenco outfit") or traje de gitana ("Gitana outfit") is the dress traditionally worn by women at Ferias (festivals) in Andalusia, Spain. The Dress are trimmed with layers of ruffles on both the skirt and sleeves and is typically brightly colored, usually in black, red or and may be plain. The wearer often complements her clothes with a scarf or cape with fringes, typically with the Mantón de Manila. The hairstyle is decorated with one or more flowers, with the hair usually tied or braided to the bun. Jewellery combs and hair clips are also common. The exposed ears are decorated with large earrings. Bracelets and necklaces made of coral, pearls or large artificial pearls in bright colors complement the jewelry. In addition, she wears shoes with half heels or high heels. Especially in flamenco dancing, closed shoes or bootees with half-heeled block heels are the shoes of choice for mastering the fast-paced foot techniques, the Zapateados.
So I tried to do something similar with armor parts available in GW2. So besides hairstyling, I chose the boots with heel, a flower in hair, some golden rings for fingers. With chest armor I could also use new Metal Legion T-shirt in black, but I wanted to show some more skin and decided for Feathered Vestments, because I found that it fits better to Flamenco.
I was often in Spain and in my research on flamenco dancing I came across very old pictures showing flamenco dancers accompanying each other with a jingle ring (or headless tambourine),. Whether alone or in a group, the bell ring had its fixed place. Instead of the jingle ring, the castanets, which actually do not belong to flamenco, but to Spanish folklore, prevailed. So Orchestral Focus was perfectly suited for my purpose.
With my pictures I have tried to capture Flamenco Vibes. Enjoy the fiery flamenco rhythm.
