Beauty Pageant Winner - Ms. Aquamarine
Standing just 8.5" in height, as waves of blue, silver, and sand brown hair cascade down her back, Zarina graciously accepts the winner's sash of World's Ms. Aquamarine! As if drawn from the night sky by Neptune himself and strewn across her sea gown, starfish light up and dazzle her bodice. She seemed destined for this moment.
Members from the highest ranks of the underwater community traveled on the currents, some thousands of miles around, to witness this spectacular event. A cheering audience of seahorses, dolphins, sea nymphs, lobsters, walruses, oysters, and a few rarely seen deep sea divers fill the grand, historic arena which once was a luxurious cruise ship that tragically sank over a century ago to the sea floor. Since then, it has become a historic monument when Sea Crab Legs won the 1856 Olympics in the Mile Dash Race against Humprey, the Humpback Miniature Whale who was easily dwarfed by the mighty Alaskan King Crab.
Newly-crowned Zarina will embark on her journey and begin to fulfil her obligations as Ms. Aquamarine beginning tomorrow. The royal herd of sea horses will take her back to her hotel as she glides along in her glimmering oyster carriage.
(This is one of the pieces I recently found, made some additions to, and will auction her off on eBay, starting Saturday, 8/29/09 or 9/5/09. Pictures of her back which is adorned with silver goddess charms and colored beads can be viewed in an earlier post from February 2009. You can search for it by typing Ms. Aquamarine. Please note, as each one of my recently found pieces is completed, it will be posted here, along with the date and place it will be put up for adoption. All pieces will be dated and signed.)
