my re-working of John William Waterhouse's 'Ophelia [blue dress]' 1905


"And I, of ladies most deject and wretched,
That suck'd the honey of his music vows,
Now see that noble and most sovereign reason,
Like sweet bells jangled out of tune and harsh,
That unmatch'd form and feature of blown youth
Blasted with ecstasy. O, woe is me
T'have seen what I have seen, see what I see."
William Shakespeare's Hamlet, Act III, Scene I

you need to put some Henna in your hair to go close to that original... then that would contrast with the greeny sticks and the blue dress!
