After the grand finale of Ruin and Rising, I was feeling a little down because my journey with my favourite characters have come to an end. I really wanted to have a physical piece of the Grisha with me, so I came up with this mixed-media compact. I repurposed an ugly looking mirror using different types of materials, and surprisingly, it turned out okay! I’m just super happy that I’m no longer Grisha swag-less (lol) and that I can bring it everywhere with me. I’m thinking of making a compact for the other two books but we shall see.
Seriously the Grisha Trilogy is probably one of the best things I’ve ever come across, so thank you Leigh (@lbardugo) for sharing this marvellous world with us! I cannot wait for the Dregs ^^
Fabrikator status unlocked!! So clever and beautiful, and dang it, I want one!
The Alkonost is, according to Russian mythology and folklore, a creature with the body of a bird but the head of a beautiful woman. They make sounds that are amazingly beautiful, and those who hear these sounds forget everything they know and want nothing more ever again.
She lives in the underworld, but the Alkonost will lay her eggs on a beach and then roll them into the sea. When the eggs hatch, a thunderstorm sets and the sea becomes unmanageable.
