A day in the sun

To say it was a pretty day was an absolute understatement. The sun was high in the sky and the softest of breezes caressed the campers cheeks as they went about their daily business. It was the perfect day to be inpsired and the perfect day to enjoy the outdoors. For a certain camper, it was too good a day to pass up. She usually stayed huddled in the cabin when she was working but with a positive day and attitude she'd dragged her mannequin and her latest creation out to the arts and crafts area and set up with all her fabrics and tailoring supplies.

With a pair of a glasses that helped her see the tiniest of stitches the platinum blonde haired girl weaved a needle and thread through the decorative buttons on her latest creation which by the looks of it was a cross between armor and a jacket. It was black and brown and had several pieces of leather sewn into it in various spots. She was making it for herself because she wasn't much of a fan of her current armor when she was only practicing.

With her eyes focusing hard on the buttons as she stitched them into place she sat up a little bit to use a small towel to wipe a bead of sweat from her forehead. Most found her a tiny bit odd. She was a Child of Aphrodite who didn't take much pride in her appearance. Sure, she had plenty of natural beauty but makeup had never touched her skin and her hair was usually hanging about her in a glorious, tangled mess much like it was now. She didn't mind though, this was just the way she was. She WAS a tomboy after all, that much being shown by her bare feet, blue jeans and baggy white t-shirt.

Having finally secured the button she flopped onto the chair next to the mannequin and looked up at it for a few moments. It really was coming along nicely. She'd likely have it done byt he end of the day, though she was regretting building a corset into the midsection, maybe she should let it be a bit baggier rather than form-fitting. She'd never even worn a corset. She set down her needle and thread on the table, the thread was a finely spun thread which was built a little bit stronger than others for the rigors that the outfit would have to endure on a daily basis.

Sophia plopped down on her bunk, absolutely exhausted. Luckily, all of her activities were done for the time being. Right now her hair was currently a rats nest, the dark strands forming together to create hundreds of tiny knots. Her jeans were ruffled an her CHB t-shirt was covered in dirt from where she had been practicing during sword training class. Seeing her half-sister, Serrah, Sophia waved shyly. After all Sophia was not the best socialite. Quite frankly she could be brave at times, but that diminished quickly.


Mustering up as much strength as possible, Sophia managed to walk into the bathroom that was reeking of perfume. Luckily, she had found a clean wash rag that she was currently wetting in the bathroom sink. Glancing at Serrah once more, Sophia was instantly intrigued. "What are you working on, Serrah?" Her voice was low and soft, just as it usually was while she wiped off her face.

Serrah Hawthorne


Serrah let her eyes roam up and down the mannequin lazily, looking for imperfections or anything she could add to make it better. She supposed she could reinforce the armor a little bit but that would add a little too much weight. It was funny how making clothing could so easily translate to armor as well. Not plate armor, but anything light like leather or otherwise could easily be used by her. She smiled a little bit and turned her eyes to Sophia who waved as her shyly. She offered a bright smile.

She watched the girl brave the bathroom, it was often way too perfumey in there for Serrah. Though one of her half-sisters had dumped half a bottle of perfume on her one night because she refused to do her a favor so her bed kind of made her used to the smell. She yawned a little bit and responded to Sophia whom she was so used to not saying anything, "Well, it's a lightweight set of practice armor that I kind of stylized." She smiled a bit and looked to the outfit and then to Sofia with a curious look.

"Hmn..it's adjustable too...Come here for a sec will you? Take off your shirt." She tugged the jacket off of the mannequin and undid the buttons for a minute, "I need to see how it moves so you get to wear it for me!" She put on her most hopeful smile.

Sofia hesitated, finally getting her face perfectly clean. It wouldn't hurt to help her sister, would it. After all, she had been in this position before. And when you wanted things just right... you had to find the means to do it that way. Walking out of the bathroom, she seen the jacket like thing. It was black, a few straps here and there. Hmm... Sofia kind of liked it. 


Walking over, she pulled her shirt over her head. Gods this could get annoying sometimes, but being a child of Aphrodite, she had gotten used to it. "I kind of like it," she said, her voice a mumble.
