I did this as a gift for my roommate’s birthday. We have lived together eight bajillion years. It is a picture of her as her spirit animal (a fawn) dressed like her best Halloween costume (a sparkly country singer) hanging out with me (a penguin) dressed like my best Halloween costume (Lord Nelson). I…give weird presents. Whatever, she dug it (which is why we have lived together eight bajillion years). 
Also I painted the frame so it would be cyan with the red in the picture because those are my favorite colors together yes.

Mary from Downton Abbey. 
Just finished watching the first series of Downton Abbey yesterday. It’s on Netflix Instant, if you want to check it out, and you should, because it’s GREAT for a whole lot of reasons I won’t go into here because we all have to leave the internet SOMETIME. 
I find Mary very fascinating, and a little surprised that she’s turned out to be my favorite character. The show is full of excellent female characters, but she is written to be intentionally difficult to love. She’s complicated and sometimes cruel and vain and is really the pinpoint for the show to look into how the crumbling class system and the upcoming women’s rights movement clash, and doesn’t know where she really fits into either.
Also she looks great in top hats.
