IF: Tales and Legends




Rapunzel was one of my favorite fairy tales when I was little. I guess I thought she and I had a lot in common with the super long fair hair and all. Luckily I have never had anyone try to climb on mine. I imagine that would be quite painful.

I have some more wordy posts in the works, but it is late here and I am off to bed. Until next time, have a great Thursday everybody! Enjoy.

I second everything everyone has said. :) She's gorgeous, and the light sure does help enhance her mood. She doesn't look lonely though, more hopeful. A happy Rapunzel. Great work.

LOVE the whimsy in your interpretation. Original way to represent her hair. It reminds me of when a prisoner ties sheets together to make a rope.
Blessings.
