Countess Bathory by h0tairballoons Countess Bathory by h0tairballoons
Again, I don't have the full sized image anymore because my old computer died.

This shoot was inspired by Countess Elizabeth Bathory. Erzsébet Báthory, the "Blood Countess". Killed over 650 of her female servants. Sentenced to life in Castle Csejte where she died alone. One of the origins of the vampire myth.

I've read a book about her before. They say she thought that drinking/bathing in the blood of young girls would keep her young. Creepy.

If you've never read it, there is a book called Quiver by Holly Luhning that gives a partial recount of some of Bathory's work as a murderer. An interesting read, and I can see the connection between her story and your piece. Beautiful!
