A Tattered Page – Good Omens Opens Today!!

ATP Good Omens LogoOne of my favorite events on the grid is A Tattered Page.

It makes my little literary heart sing to find an event that encourages people to – gasp! – read a book. 😛

When I heard they were looking for bloggers, I applied, though I didn’t really expect to be chosen.

Surprise!

This round the book is Good Omens by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett.

I had read the book before, but I reread it a few weeks ago, just to refresh my memory.

It was just as funny the second time through.

The basic story is that the Anti-Christ is arriving, and thus the world as we know it will be ending.

Crowley (a demon) and Aziraphale (an angel), who have grown quite fond of Earth and each other, try to figure out their places in the ‘ineffable plan.’

However, the Anti-Christ is placed with the wrong family thanks to a loquacious Satanic nun, and hilarity ensues.

There are some scary characters in the novel, i.e. The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse.

One of the horsemen is War, who is a woman known as Scarlett.

She is described in the book thus:

“Her hair was true auburn, neither ginger nor brown, but deep and burnished copper-color, and it fell to her waist in tresses that men would kill for, and indeed often had. Her eyes were a startling orange. She looked twenty-five, and always had.’  (pg. 44)

She is, of course, beautiful.

However, she is described as beautiful “the way a forest fire was beautiful: something to be admired from a distance, not up close.” (pg. 104)

War is certainly a notable character in the novel, and was the inspiration behind two amazing items for this round.

ATP Good Omens War Helmet 2

War rides a motorcycle in the book, and I always imagined her as the smokin’ hot biker babe.

This incredible helmet from Eclectica was inspired by the following excerpt:

“There was something about the sight of a beautiful woman on a powerful motorbike with a sword stuck on the back that had a powerful effect on a certain type of man. So far four traveling salesmen had tried to race her, and bits of Ford Sierra now decorated the crash barriers and bridge supports along forty miles of motorway.” (pg. 233)

ATP Good Omens War Helmet

War is wearing the black version, but the helmet also comes in pale and, of course, red.

The helmet is modifiable for easy resizing (make a copy first!) and you can also alter the transparency of the visor if you’d like.

After she steps off the bike, things get even more dangerous.

ATP Good Omens War Dress

The War Dress by Luminary is fitmesh and comes in a variety of colors – red, blue, cream, sky, and black.

“‘Thanks for the warning,’ Scarlett purred. Her voice sounded like something that lurks in the long grass, visible only by the twitching of its ears, until something young and tender wobbles by.” (pg. 47)

I love the plunging neckline on the gown and the black side panels which help emphasize your curves.

If you’d like to snag these goodies for yourself (and who wouldn’t?!), stop by The Library.

Don’t forget to check out the other goodies for sale – there are some amazing creators in this event!

The event opens July 7 at noon SLT and runs through July 31st.

  1. OMG…I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this book… I still want my own hellhound *giggles* I’ve recently begun reading Terry’s entire discworld series (41 books) and I feel like I’m reading books I would right if I were a gifted, silly, sarcastic author 🙂 I’m very excited to go and explore.

    1. I knew what you meant. 😉 There are some cool items – I’m stopping by again later today to see what’s new, because there were a few vendors running behind.
