I always have a hard time coming up with site names (which is why I prefer fanlisting adoptions because they usually come with a name haha). I went with the usual words associated with Sleeping Beauty and played around with them - love, waiting, curse, dream, timeless, etc. It struck me that the old fairy's 'gift' to Sleeping Beauty although had evil intentions, ended up being a good thing. If the curse was not laid, Sleeping Beauty would not have met her true love the Prince, who would've been born perhaps years after the princess had already died if she'd not slept. So in this way, her cursed was a blessing so we have the juxtaposition Blessed Curse. I'm quite fond of this name so I doubt this site will go through 32434 name changes as some of my other sites tend to. ~ Kibou
What a dark layout for a happily ever after fairy tale! Usually when I design a layout, I put an image to it last. However, this time I started with the image. I came across this gorgeous image while browsing Deviantart. When I received the fanlisting approval, I thought I'd ask the artist if I could use it. There were other illustrations of Sleeping Beauty available but either they were of poor quality or just didn't strike me as layout material. The background to the original picture was black and I liked the effect of that so I designed around that colour scheme. While I do like this layout, I feel it's a bit on the gungey side. Brushes are from Echoica and Lovely Trash. Fonts from Misprinted Type. Programs used were Adobe Photoshop 7.0 and Notepad. ~ Kibou
