Book Looks was created by Jen at Books and Other Happy Ever Afters, combining our love of books & fashion with book cover or scene inspired outfits.
This week’s feature is:
Micheline Helsing is a tetrachromat—a girl who sees the auras of the undead in a prismatic spectrum. As one of the last descendants of the Van Helsing lineage, she has trained since childhood to destroy monsters both corporeal and spiritual: the corporeal undead go down by the bullet, the spiritual undead by the lens. With an analog SLR camera as her best weapon, Micheline exorcises ghosts by capturing their spiritual energy on film. She’s aided by her crew: Oliver, a techno-whiz and the boy who developed her camera’s technology; Jude, who can predict death; and Ryder, the boy Micheline has known and loved forever.
When a routine ghost hunt goes awry, Micheline and the boys are infected with a curse known as a soulchain. As the ghostly chains spread through their bodies, Micheline learns that if she doesn’t exorcise her entity in seven days or less, she and her friends will die. Now pursued as a renegade agent by her monster-hunting father, Leonard Helsing, she must track and destroy an entity more powerful than anything she’s faced before . . . or die trying.
Lock, stock, and lens, she’s in for one hell of a week.
Happy Halloween everyone!! To celebrate this holiday I thought it would be fun to feature a scary book. Micheline is a ghost hunter but it doesn’t mean she can’t hunt in style!
For this Book Look I wanted to create an edgy, rockstar look. I haven’t read this book yet but I think Micheline sounds like a girl that can kick some ass (considering she is a descendant of the Van Helsing line – which I loved Hugh Jackman in the movie Van Helsing). I love that the blouse is feminine with the lace but the leather pants adds a fun and dangerous touch to the look. The blazer, kick ass heels and accessories complete the look. I found an analog camera which Micheline can use to capture the ghosts.
What do you think of this look?
