Cover Lover: Retrospective 2011

My name is Gabrielle Carolina, and I am a 
Cover Lover.



The third step is to identify my enablers.
2011 was a great year in covers. Too good.  

Trend of 2011:

Illusions...


Is that hair? Or snakes? She is a girl? Or a bust of a girl?


Knock, knock on wood. 

Who's there?






From Breathtaking to Creepy in one 180* turn. 'Nuff said.


Where there's hair, there's a fire.


"Oh, I wish I had a river I could skate fade away on..."


What? Not much of an illusion you say? Hold that thought, I need to blow your mind.

Is he trying to save her, or is he dragging her down? 

Depends on who "he" is, doesn't it?

Great post. I never thought about turning Hourglass and Imaginary Girls to see what they would look like. Very freaky indeed, esp. Imaginary Girls.
