Heavy Is The Crown

Never needed any reason
To find deliverance
Like a cancer running through my veins, oh
That’s never gonna give in

Daughtry – Heavy Is The Crown

When I first threw this idea together I honestly thought I had used this song previously. For some reason at 3am (yes probably not the best time to figure that out), I was convinced I had used it. Looking back to where I thought it would have been I found it wasn’t. Fantastic because it fits this perfectly. I have vibed with this song since I first heard it a little over year ago. It marked a return to Daughtry’s rock roots after a few albums that leaned more electronic/pop sounding. Don’t get me wrong they had some good songs on them, but I definitely missed this Daughtry.

I honestly didn’t have a strict “I want to do X, Y, or Z” with the photo. This particular crown and some of it’s lovely parts from + LUX AETERNA were in a previous post called You Aren’t Heard Anymore. Now just because you’ve used them once doesn’t mean you can’t use them again. A good crown is a good crown after all. Whether it be /anxiety/, + SEMPITERNAL, + LUX AETERNA, I’ve always loved the creativity and design that comes from them.

Last time around I stuck to their former gacha set Magno Rex. This time I pulled in some gorgeous stuff from Spires Society for the backdrop. Their Onyx Throne Room was absolutely perfect for this and I have to say everything I’ve ever purchased from them has been nothing short of amazing. I know a lot of time, care, and detail goes into every piece and it shows in the final product. If you don’t know them you need to.

For the outfit, I leaned once again to my wardrobe from toksik. They never fail me. Being able to pick colors to pull it all together is a huge plus to making it look good. It once again proves how valuable a fatpack truly can be. I wanted black, purple, and gold and it was so easy to achieve thanks to that. Once again the detail and design work are second to none as has everything I’ve ever purchased there. I topped it off with a few extras from E.V.E (those lovely purple orbs you see floating around), some extras from the Magno Rex gacha, and what good is this without a sword? I pulled out the old faithful from Empyrean Forge (sadly no you can’t find it anymore.)

So what is up next for me. I think figuring out my own space. I’ve been platform living since I came back and while that platform is nice, it’s rather boring. I’m thinking something smaller but nice enough to be able to use for what I want/need to. We’ll see where it goes, hopefully the next shot is something involving that. All depends on how this week plays out in terms of free time but that would be a pretty good goal to set. Until next time…

Heavy is the crown
Never falter, never let ’em bleed you out
I’ll be still standing when they try to bring my castle down
I’ll never bow down, heavy is the crown”
