In The Garden Of Good & Evil
A bit Tim Burton, a bit Snow White, these alluring images look like pages from a Gothic fairytale. Created by artist Caia Koopman, her original characters have an alternative, rebellious and vulnerable beauty about them. Contrasting innocent images of birds and flowers in pastel colors with jet black hair, waif-like bodies, dark rimmed eyes and burgundy stained lips, Caia creates a truly unique heroine that is both sweet and dark, alluring and intimidating. Choose from Garden Tampon Case (left) and Farewell Wallet Case (right). Made in Los Angeles. Sold individually.
