Nope. This post is not about Wicked. :P It’s about Ate’s new toy which she has named ELPHABA-G because of.. well, the color. It’s striking green!
Just a little Trivia: Do you know why Elphaba’s skin is green? Well, it’s is a direct result of her biological father’s meddling with the green elixir which caused her to be born with green skin. But Elphaba’s green skin also links her not just to the other world, but to the green land of Oz itself. Elphaba’s green skin also ties her to themes of magic, other worlds and realities, politics and power (via the Emerald City), the mythical and “all-seeing” (or all-imagining) Time Dragon, and various mythical aspects of Oz itself.
And because of Elphaba-g, we went in search for clothes to match the current favorite a.k.a. flavor of the month. Away from her traditional blacks & greys. Yay! I love the color of Spring. I will finally see some colors on Ate! <3
But before that, we had to fill up our running-on-low tanks for the menial task ahead.. choosing clothes that have green/yellow prints, or is related to/can be married to, the spinach color!
And where does our feet take us? Banana Leaf of all places. I think we have conditioned our brains too much into thinking clean & green. Even our restaurant of choice that day bore the DLSU Archers’ color.
What we had..
After a filling lunch, we went with the task ahead. And heavily laden with shopping bags, I can safely say she has a few safe OOTDs to match her latest acquisition..
Ang hirap ng may anak na dalaga! @_@
