When I decided to feature Little Red Riding Hood for the Fairy Tale part of Saz’s Through your Interface challenge, it seemed like an easy choice with Darkmoon Island providing the perfect backdrop.

It’s believed the story originated somewhere in Europe around the 14th Century. The most familiar version was written by The Brothers Grimm based on two retellings of the story and further revised in later editions.

“Oh, grandmother, what big ears you have!” “The better to hear you with”. “Oh, grandmother, what big eyes you have!” “The better to see you with”. “Oh, grandmother, what big hands you have!” “The better to grab you with”. “But, grandmother, what a dreadful big mouth you have!” “The better to eat you with”.

A while ago I posted a picture of Little Red Riding Hood as part of Saz’s Through your Interface challenge which was a lot of fun to do. The outfit was pieced together very quickly but I think it turned out pretty well. Several items were from my current set while the others were made up of selections from my virtual closet.

Later on, I had the opportunity to reinvent her costume for Hallow’s End. This time, I wanted to base her look on the movie release and with the Lil’ Bad Wolf as one of the upcoming pets in Patch 5.3, it was a no-brainer.

With a one in three chance to get the right Opera Event in Kara, I was lucky enough to get the drop after my third attempt. I ended up tweaking the original outfit with a few pieces purchased with Justice Points.
