I’ve been around the Back to Black event a few times now, different friends in different time zones and all. I have to admit, yes there were some great designs, but none that stood out as much to me as the “Wicca Lioness” from PurpleMoon Creations by Poulet Koenkamp. Sure, I’m probably short on events to wear this one too, but for some reason I was compelled to buy it. Reading the notecard included in the outfit folder touched my heart, guess there’s the reason why I just had to have it.
Poulet shares her personal journey in dealing with her own bout of depression and how the Back to Black event meant something to her, especially being given her design word – courage.. This outfit came about when Poulet and her friend Wicca Merlin were brainstorming for ideas. Wicca handed Poulet a list of words – “crazy, elegant , tight, extraordinary prims, satin, classy, avant garde, shiny, adult and non-symmetric”. After bouncing these words around in her head, Poulet designed the Lioness.
For those of you that have dealt with depression, you may be able to relate to how courage plays a big part in moving on with your life. For those of you still battling it – have the courage to succeed and beat it.
