Introduction

<div class="legacy-text"><div class="legacy-text">This set is a visual reference to John Everett Millais' painting, Ophelia.<br /><br />Indirectly, it acknowledges love, suicide, and mental instability - at once plagues and fascinations.<br /><br />Shakespeare's Ophelia - erotically open-armed and upward-gazed - floats to her watery death. Millais showed her - modeled by the muse Elizabeth Siddal posing afloat in a bathtub - amidst beautiful natural detail, which was a hallmark of the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood. This movement has been considered one of the first avant-garde art groups, as it favored having and expressing genuine ideas, studying nature, and appreciating the heartfelt over mechanical and rote processes.<br /><br />This set is my homage to that, all of that.<br /><br />------------------------------------------------<br /><br /><i>There with fantastic garlands did she come<br />Of crow-flowers, nettles, daisies, and long purples...<br />Her clothes spread wide;<br />And, mermaid-like, awhile they bore her up:<br />Which time she chanted snatches of old tunes;<br />As one incapable of her own distress,<br />Or like a creature native and indued<br />Unto that element: but long it could not be<br />Till that her garments, heavy with their drink,<br />Pull'd the poor wretch from her melodious lay<br />To muddy death.</i></div></div>

SuicideGirls… became famous for embracing beauty in every shape and form — meaning bodies covered in tattoos, having bright-colored hair, and being outside of traditional beauty norms were celebrated. The name comes from the idea that women who commit “social suicide” by being different come together.
