Great vintage b&w effect.
I love the perspective in the outdoor shot; once again you make the setting look in scale to them.
Neat glow-y lighting, and Triv looks very happy with her new specs. (Does being able to see better make her the one who reads all the instructions and thus supervises everyone else on the construction sites?? LOL )

Sally looks like she's having quite the adventure. And some greenery! Did you finally get some rain?

I like the glasses on Triv, but then I think Triv looks good wearing anything.

Adventure Sally is great to see again, and the two demon / devil figures are very intriguing.

Triv's new glasses look great.

I don’t think I’m ever going to be able to look at Sister Bertrill the same way again.

I was delighted to inadvertently discover a head for this figure that so closely resembled a youthful Sally Field!

And many of the younglings out there probably have no idea what we’re talking about.

OK wut? It's a cool-looking photo but that's not really a Thing, is it? I mean, it sounds like something that should be a Thing.... LOL

She needs the enormous silly wimple to properly look like Sister Bertrill, but I certainly see the resemblance.

And now I’m thinking of the religious order from Riverdale - which we refer to as the Sisters of Acquired Mercy. They are not particularly Merciful…

I don’t think it was, Allie. There was however a group of Russian female combat pilots during WW2 who were known as the Night Witches.

OK, that sounds really interesting too! I'll have to go have a google sometime when I'm not quite so whacked. Dead

I found out about them because Carrie Vaughan did a short story on them for the Dangerous Women fantasy anthology.
