Sarah’s Hair

February 23, 2011

I’VE GOT A VERY SERIOUS PROBLEM!! I need to pick a hair-style for Lady Sarah of Blanchefort, and I can’t decide. Cover artist Carol Phillips has given me lots of options and I’m at a loss. Here’s your chance to throw your two-cents in and have a say in how the cover for Book IV, The Machine will look.

Sarah is a rather brusque tom-boy, a hot-head and a bit of a loud-mouth. She loves the thrill of adventure and is an eager companion of her cousin, Lord Kabyl of Blanchefort. She’s basically a big kid. I describe her in the story as having a long head of straight blue hair, like her grandmother had. She doesn’t spend a lot of time fussing with it. She pulls it back into a bouncy ponytail and a rolled-up set of bangs, quick and easy and that’s it.

Here are the choices:

Choices A and D are most like how I describe Sarah in the story. However, given her rather girl-like nature, pigtails aren’t out of the question.

Go ahead, take a look and give me your thoughts.

  1. Definitely A one, my friend! Of course you don’t have to feel oblidged to my choice, but I think A is the most ancient, noble look? Best wishes! Good Luck!

    I would have gone with the pigtails before – but based on your description of her, I would have to go with “D”. “A” would be my second choice.

    Thanks much, Chantal!!

  5. Definitely A! 😀 And that’s coming from a tomboy.

  6. I think it should be D since it is still a ponytail, but more of a swashbuckler’s ponytail…and she sounds adventurous!It also shows that while she cares what she looks like, she isn’t too concerned with her hair, because she is a woman with intellectual pursuits and passions. D is my vote!Fun post, Ren: )

    Hey Chris!!

    I agree with you that D has a very daring look it. Thanks for your thoughts! 🙂
