Those golden thingies are Thai dance fingers, little hollow metal tubes tapered on one end that fit on your fingers. I thought they brought the right kind of magic to the photo! I'm wearing a Chinese eBay dress and a lovely PVC waist cincher by Artifice clothing. I tried to do the make up in a Chinese opera make up style, but it doesn't really look anything like it when done in purple instead of the usual red. Oh well! It still works well with the purple of the headdress. I think.
