A study in scarlet

[personal profile] dine just tagged me for the color meme. You comment, I give you a color, and you make a post naming ten things you like in that color. [personal profile] dine gave me scarlet, a color I barely relate to at all, so it's an interesting challenge.



Scarlet is defined as being a little on the orange side of pure red. But I'm just going for a generally vivid, brilliant red color. So here we go.

  1. Clyde. Duh.
    Clyde on the Eastbank
  2. The Serenity Coat
    Serenity Coat back
  3. Benton Fraser's coat
  4. Vine maple leaves in autumn
  5. Some of Andy Goldsworthy's pieces
  6. Red twig dogwood
  7. The scarlet silk lining of my black and white herringbone tweed big-shouldered, raglan-sleeved, ankle-length 1995 winter coat, which I made. That was a hell of a coat.
  8. As long as we're tripping down memory lane, the red Thai silk Claude Montana massive shouldered, tight fitting, kick-ass-and-take-names sheath dress, which I also made, and how much do I love the internet??? Because I just found a picture of the exact pattern OMG look!

    Picture that sleeveless version on the left in scarlet Thai silk on a 5'10" 29 year old with sleek dark hair pulled back into one of those Madonna hair cones. Those were the days, my friend. Scarlet is no country for old women.
  9. This Indonesian pedicab, which I saw in the neighborhood a couple of weeks ago, was pretty cool.
    60. Red
  10. Red sky at night
    (the Rosette Nebula)

Dear God, the Serenity Coat!

What a thing of joy and wonder! Did you make it? Buy it? See it? Tell me more about the Serenity Coat!

Oh - also, hit me with a colour? &hearts

The story of the Serenity Coat is in this area. Yes, I made it. It was a project and a half, but Nathan Fillion did both admire and touch it. While I was wearing it. A high fannish point of my life.

And I am so torn about which color to challenge you with, but I'm going to with my first instant reaction: fuchsia. Have fun!
