Pru’s June Fab Free Photo Challenge Submission “Selkie”

FabFree Photo Challenge Submission -- June

I have to start this post off by telling you how hard it was to pick a single “look” to go with for this challenge. There are so many gorgeous avatar accessories and costumes for an “Under the Sea” theme, I just might make more than one entry!  That said, I ended up picking something that I felt was a bit different, and slightly based on one of my personal favorite bits of seafaring folklore. The legend of the Selkies is a largely Irish/Scottish fairy-tale but has roots in several cultures. The basis of this myth says that Selkies are seals that can shed their seal skin and shift into a human (both male and female) and often take human lover and even have families. However, the stories are usually tragic love stories because the Selkie will always long for the sea. Once in their human form, a Selkie will often stare longingly at the ocean and should he or she ever find their seal skin, may return to their seal form and their ocean home, abandoning their human mate.
