Miss Gwen is having a good gloat. (And no one gloats like Miss Gwen.) Our first Pinkorama of 2016 is her very own Convent of Orsino, brought delightfully to peep by Kayse.

Some background: in Pink X, The Passion of the Purple Plumeria (aka Miss Gwen Explains Everything), each chapter begins with a snippet from the novel our intrepid chaperone, Miss Gwen, has been working on since, oh, The Secret History of the Pink Carnation.

As one would expect from Miss Gwen, The Convent of Orsino (by a Lady) contains only the purplest of purple prose.

Kayse writes: My scene depicts the climatic scene from Miss Gwen’s own magnum opus, “The Convent of Orsino” (from Chapter 23 of The Passion of the Purple Plumeria): as the mirror lies between the wicked Knight of the Silver Tower and Amarantha, intrepid Plumeria (Peepmeria?) is ready to jump into battle.

And here it is, with editorial notes from Kayse!

Plumeria is dressed in purple, of course!…

…And Amarantha!

May I say that I love Amarantha’s floral dress? It’s so appropriate. And I am absolutely in love with the way the Knight of the Silver Tower’s green bunny ears stick out over his helmet. I think that would be a great look for Nicolas, don’t you?

Thank you so much, Kayse, for this gorgeous depiction of Miss Gwen’s magnum opus! Plumeria can say what she will, but I would very gladly move into that Tower. There’s even a wonderful musty old tome to read! Perhaps an early edition of The Convent of Orsino? Because we are nothing if not meta over here.

Stay tuned for Pinkorama #2, coming up tomorrow….

    I love it! Especially since Kayse chose such an original scene 🙂 And the Peep costumes are wonderful, that always seems like the most difficult part!
