You Will Be Missed, Dragonlady of Pern

So I wanted to take a moment to post about Anne McCaffrey. Some people know and some do not that I am a huge fan of the Dragonriders of Pern and have been for over half of my life. I've written my own characters in the universe and this was my first foray into doing so. On top of it all, one of the main reasons I keep returning to DragonCon in Atlanta, GA is because of my conversations with Todd, one of Anne's sons.

Over the next few weeks, I am going to be taking a look at what I consider some of the essential cosmetics for looks inspired by the people and dragons of Pern. I'm not sure if I can include photos but I will try and link to swatches if I can even if they are not my own.

The first books I read were the Harper Hall trilogy and I had the hugest crush on the Harper Sebell. Later, Masterharper Robinton became one of my most loved characters and my favorite Pern book to date is The Masterharper of Pern. I have a print of Robin Wood's depiction of F'lar, Weyrleader of Benden Weyr on my wall and I continue to look on it in admiration.

I was very blessed to meet Anne at DragonCon and learn a bit more about the world she had created. It only strengthened my love for the series.

So I wanted to say,

Rest in Peace
Anne McCaffrey

  1. I concur :( We lost Anne McCaffrey, Sara Douglass and Diana Wynne Jones all in one year! A sad sad year for fantasy enthusiasts :(
